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.

Our recent trip to the east coast would not have been complete without a stay at Captain Swift Inn. We have stayed at the Inn several times over the past few years.

My wife and I recently spent 3 nights at the Captain Swift Inn where Norm and Linda took great care of us! The Bay Breeze room was bright and spacious and there was a nice living room on the main floor with a couch and several chairs which were ideal for reading. The breakfasts, served in two different dining areas,... More

I wish we could've stayed longer than one night! This place is in the perfect location. You are close to everything and within walking distance to so many great places.

We were really happy with our stay here. Breakfast was good, and we had great customer service from the innkeeper. He also had really good recommendations about the area. The inn is located minutes from the downtown area, and it was really easy to get to a lot of the local destinations. Ps: They had fresh baked cookies!

Norm was very nice, had great ideas for activities that matched our interests, and created gorgeous and tasty breakfasts. Great location for exploring the town on foot. Comfortable bed, though the room was a little noisy with street traffic since we chose the front room. Even though it was pre-season, Norm pulled out two outdoor chairs and a table so... More

The location was close to Maine Media and an easy walk to Camden Harbour and the many restaurants in the area. The breakfasts were very special: sweet style one day and savory the next. The French...

Camden has a large selection of accommodation to choose from and we chose the Inn based on previous reviews and also it's walking proximity to the centre of Camden. The Inn itself is a beautiful old building with plenty of old age New England charm internally and externally. We were happy to check in and relax enjoying homemade lemonade and... More
