Occasionally when you travel you stumble, just stumble, into an oasis. Captain Swift Inn was our stumble in October 2020. Yes, yes, yes, the lush lovely grounds/gardens are wonderful and harmonious and representative of Midcoast (inimitable Midcoast); and the Inn structure is amazing, utter perfection in every detail; and, our room, Ann Bailey, divine. Really every detail executed exquisitely and cannot be improved upon. But this Inn is in the special class of lodgings that it is in as much for the unique brand of hospitality offered by the Inn owners, Carolyn and Rick, as it is for the surroundings. They understand comfortable, easy, luxury travel and offer it generously. I thought long and hard before writing this review because I don’t want to have a hard time getting a reservation when covid departs, but this Inn is too special to keep to myself. Any traveler will savor the minutes they spend wrapped in the physical beauty and the lavish hospitality they’ll find here.…
My husband and I frequent many B & B's. Captain Swift Inn has just moved to the #1 Best bed and breakfast we have ever been to! Rick and Carolyn are very engaging and aim to please. The accommodations and grounds are stunning and the breakfast is beyond compare. We have already recommended this inn to many friends. We will be returning!
Caroline and Rick were amazing! They made my fiancé and I feel so welcomed and safe during these unprecedented times. The food is out of this world! I have never seen such an impressive breakfast before. The snacks they have out are so good as well! We can’t wait to go back! If you are heading to Camden, this is your place to stay look no more! :)
The rooms, common areas, and amenities were warm, welcoming and overall excellent . We particularly enjoyed the gas fireplace in our room and the outiside fire pit.. Carolyn and Rick could not have been friendlier and more helpful. They seem to have thought of everything that we could need or want, from a constant supply of delicious sweets to basic items such as toothpaste and other things that people often forget. Breakfasts were superb, and it's a very easy walk to the town center.
My husband and I spent three nights here and enjoyed ourselves immensely. The location was great (walk to town/restaurants), three course breakfasts were incredible, and rooms were clean and lovely. The beds were extremely comfortable, and the hosts included nice touches in their recent renovation like Smart TV, gas fireplaces and in room AC/Heat. Since these are strange COVID times, cleanliness, people wearing masks and ability to distance and/or eat outside are important, and I felt the hosts did a great job in all areas. Enjoying the inn’s delicious breakfast on the large deck with the sun and nice breeze was a highlight of the stay. All in all, I highly suggest staying at this inn.
