My husband & I stayed two nights at the Birchwood as part of our anniversary trip to Maine. Jenny & Eric immediately made us feel welcome, providing comfortable, clean accommodations nestled in beautiful, cozy surroundings. This BnB/motel is conveniently located not far from downtown Camden. Jenny was so helpful with providing suggestions for things to see in the area and... More

We stayed at Birchwood as part of a 10 day motorcycle trip around the area. We connected with Jenny, the Innkeeper, immediately upon arrival and could have easily opened a bottle of wine and chatted happily with her for hours! It is great to find a place to stay where the owner’s principles of living are so closely aligned with... More

This was our second and third stay here at this great gem of a place. We wanted something simple to rest our heads for the night while on our Coastal Maine vacation. Jenny and her husband take great care and pride running this family owned lodge. Let me recommend the Corner King Room which we were able to reserve on... More

From the phone call making the reservation to the check-in, Jennie, the innkeeper, was welcoming, outgoing and personable and then offered excellent dinner choices in Camden. After a full day on the road, the Birchwood offered a quiet, spotless, and comfortable room complete with beautiful quilted bed, updated bathroom and free, fast wifi. View of the islands and bay across... More

Pros Beautiful setting, back from highway, big lawn in front. Old-fashioned motel style, so no halls, one floor, convenient. Nice décor—a bit Queen Ann or Victorian, homey. Remodeled in recent years with some new fixtures. Free wifi a very fast 17 Mbs, versus 2 or 3 Mbps at most motels. Mini frig included, but no coffee maker nor microwave. Instead... More

I stayed in a single queen bed motel room the last weekend in September. It's right on Rt.1/Belfast Rd. There's an individual table and chairs on the lengthwise front porch so each unit has an eastern view of the Ocean across the road. Great for watching the sun rise for the early or the moon rise at dusk. I was... More

What a surprise. This little motel, just outside Camden Maine has a perfect location on Maine's gorgeous coastline. The innkeepers' hands on approach is very evident in the spotless, comfortable and charmingly appointed guestrooms. A view of the water and the most delicious pumpkin scones ever were just two of the surprises this special motel offers. And the rate is... More

This is a lovely motel, quiet and esthetic, just enough out of the Camden Main Street touristy area for calm and close enough to Mt. Battie and downtown to really enjoy. We loved the home-made blueberry scones at breakfast, the chairs on the patio.

We stayed in the apartment above the main house over Labor Day weekend, It is a 2 bedroom apartment with everything you could ask for. We cooked dinners in the full kitchen and a continental breakfast of home naked goods comes with the stay. The property is gorgeous. The apartment has an amazing view of Penobscot Bay as well as...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Every room is water view at solar-powered Birchwood - a vintage roadside lodge in charming Camden, Maine that is more like an agricultural bed & breakfast than a typical motel, hotel or inn.

Just 2.5 miles north of Camden's downtown harbor district. Offering a variety of lodging options: standard guest rooms, deluxe rooms, cottage and vacation rentals. Light continental breakfast of organic coffee and teas, fresh juice and fruit and a wholesome homemade baked good offered each morning in our spacious reception. Clean, green and uniquely Camden, Maine. What more do you really need? ... more   less
