We had a wonderful 2-night stay at this lovely B&B in Camden. It is centrally located, just a few short blocks to the center of town and meticulously maintained by the owners. The room and hotel were very clean and charmingly decorated with a delicious breakfast! We had amazing almond-crusted french toast one morning and omelets the next. Our room... More

We stayed at the Captain Swift Inn for a weekend while in the Camden area for a wedding. We were going to be fairly late arriving so I called to explain the situation and the Innkeeper Norm said that was not problem at all. He was most gracious. The Inn is in a fabulous location!

We were lucky to get a room after a cancellation at this very comfortable little Inn, just a short walk to the restaurants and harbor. We loved our 2 nights at this well maintained and tastefully decorated house with all the amenities. The room was very comfortable, not enormous, but certainly not small, the bathroom was large and spotless. The... More

We were delighted when we saw our room, Coastal Hideaway, and immediately felt that it was not only pretty, but also calming and restful. Norm and Linda were wonderful hosts, even taking care to remember a minor diet restriction. The historical, colonial-style Inn was neat and clean. The breakfasts were nutritious and delicious.

From the breakfasts, to the afternoon treats after a hot day of kayaking, all were perfect. Great hosts, Linda and Norm, and my new favorite Inn dog, Ajax! The room was wonderfully comfortable, and it's within easy walking distance of downtown Camden.
