Perfect place to stop in Camden with a gorgeous view of the Harbor with old world charm. We were greeted by the new owners Brett & Will who were personal and made us stay extra special We particularly loved the ambience as the castle built in 1886 was beautiful and the 4 acres of land was lovely to walk on .We loved the view from our room. The New owners/ Brett & Will were great! We wish them the best

We came to the Norumbega to celebrate our elopement. We were met with a wonderful and conscientious staff, a beautiful room, and plenty of things to explore and do. I would recommend the Norumbega to anyone who has the money to spend (as the one drawback is that it could be a bit pricey for some) and we definitely intend to stay again in the future.

We stayed in the Library suite and LOVED IT! We arrived late, but we had told them and we were sent self check in instructions that were super easy to follow. There were other guests during our stay, but you wouldn’t know it, we didn’t hear anything from any other room. The kurig outside the room was perfect for early coffee or evening tea. We had breakfast in our room as we were getting ready to ski each day and it was 5* amazing. Loved our stay so much we booked the same weekend for next year upon check out for the penthouse 😉 amazing staff, service and comfort!

I’ve stayed in quite a few B&Bs and very few reach a level of complete excellence that the Norumbega effortlessly achieves! Our room was sumptuous yet cozy; tucked away in the subterranean level of the house, we stayed perfectly warm during the several single-digit nights. The many open communal spaces in the inn were equally as inviting and comfortable. I’m not sure I’ve ever wished for a longer stay somewhere just so I could sit by the window and watch the snow - at least, not until now. If my rhapsodic waxing about this place hasn’t yet depicted the Norumbega as the perfect B&B it is, let me speak about the food. My goodness. The food itself is an experience not to be missed! Each course is a culinary delight; a complementary meld of flavors that sing a delicious chorus of ~Y U M~ with each bite! I was particularly taken by a perfectly crisp banana fritter we had on our second morning, described in the texted breakfast menu we received the day before as: “sesame seed encrusted Banana fritter, ginger riata, mixed berry coulis, saffron infused golden syrup”. Personally I’ve never had anything more heavenly! If you have ever wanted to stay at a B&B but were uncertain of what you might encounter, you MUST stay at the Norumbega! Let it be what you measure all other B&Bs against, for they should all rise to the bar that Sue and Phil have set!

We enjoyed a relaxing and lovely off-season weekend at the Norumbega. The staff was very kind and helpful without being overbearing in the slightest. the breakfasts were absolutely delicious and were delivered right to our door for some added luxury! the building and rooms are beautiful and we especially appreciated the extra soft and cozy bedding. Staying at the Norumbega felt special, luxurious, and relaxing. we would definitely come back and highly recommend it!

The Norumbega inn was an amazing place to stay on vacation. The rooms are beautiful and Chef Phil Crispo’s cooking was amazing. Everyone (Sam, Carisa, Sue and Phil) is incredibly nice and accommodating.

The National Historic Registry declares the Norumbega, “with its fine architecture and outstanding location remains one of Maine’s” outstanding examples “of the great cottage villas which dotted the Maine coast in the heyday of the Victorian leisure class.” Well said and when you stay at The Norumbega, you too will feel like a million bucks! The property is exquisite and the accommodations are superb. I have stayed at Norumbega three times now and found it to be an excellent place to escape the machinations of the world and experience leisure and serenity. The food is delicious and thoughtfully creative (thanks to Executive Chef and co-owner Phil Crespo). Snacks upon arrival are substantially more than a cookie and powered me on to hike Mount Battie! Special kudos to co-owner Susan Walser and General Manager Carisa Carney for keeping everything at the castle clicking in perfect order. The Norumbega Inn is where I go when I want to feel like a million bucks!
