It's hard to argue with the warm reviews and the ability to leave your car and explore. You're even a 5min drive from the Mt. Battie park entrance ($6 pp) where you can walk or drive to the top to enjoy a view of Camden and a beautiful sunset. The inn's gorgeous floors, door hinges, and beveled glass windows invite...

This beautiful historic inn is perfectly located to explore the quaint town of Camden. With such delightful and helpful hosts, this will be your "home away from home". Norm and Linda have lovingly restored their beautiful inn, and the rooms, living area and breakfast area are beautiful and inviting. Coffee and tea (and homemade goodies) welcome you all afternoon, and... More

We highly recommend staying at this bed-and-breakfast if you are in the area. This was one of our favorite stops after staying at about four different bed-and-breakfast throughout Maine and it was the least expensive! Camden is an adorable town and definitely a great place to stop if you are on a road trip. Both the owners are extremely nice... More
