Lovely place to stay in a beautiful area. Close to the harbour and Main Street. We were given an upgrade to a HUGE and comfortable suite - much appreciated. Helpful on-site parking. Cocktails in the evening were excellent, as was dinner (I'd recommend eating there in the evening). My only (minor) criticism is that it needs to be made clear... More

This chef owned restaurant is a delight. Reasonably priced with beautifully prepared food served by attentive staff in a lovely environment. So unusual to have formal service, despite the semi casual nature of the restaurant. Wonderful line list with a surprisingly large number of bottles under $30. Our second visit, and still delighted.

If you want to truly enjoy the area, look no further. The Hartstone knows how to run a top notch establishment! From the moment you arrive until the moment you leave, you will appreciate lovely accommodations, delicious food, and friendly attention to detail from the staff. Not one or two members of the staff but, all of them!! We especially... More

We could not have asked for more from the Hartstone Inn. We were upgraded to a suite upon arrival for no apparent reason. The carriage house suite was beautiful, romantic and exquisitely furnished. The innkeepers were knowledgable and provided great suggestions about things to see and do in the area. Chef Michael Salmon's breakfast was perfect. We met some lovely... More

This place was nice, friendly and in a good location, however, I found the style old fashioned and fussy both in decor and food. It was a reasonable value and we had a wonderful time in Camden, but were I to return I would seek out an inn with a mor modern vibe.

This was a wonderful experience in Maine. We had visited New York, Boston, Bar Harbour and the Hartstone Inn exceeded all our expectations. We were given a suite, full kitchen,sitting room, walk in wardrobe, study/office, patio. That was more than we expected. No problem with parking. The staff were superb. Breakfast was a treat. The location ideal. This was a... More

This review is based solely on customer service. We made reservations at the Inn on July 15th for a 3 night stay to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. Much to our dismay we realized those dates were not going to work for us. On July 16th we called the Inn to cancel our reservation with every intent to rebook. We... More

The $20 cancellation fee covers the fees that our credit card processing company charges us for taking the deposit for your room, and then another fee associated with refunding the deposit. The cancellation fee has... More

We have been traveling to Camden frequently the past 12 years. We always stay at the Hartstone! The rooms are lovely, each unique - we have had fun staying in different rooms over the years. Our recent favorite is the Arbor Room. Breakfast is 10x better than any B&B we have previously visited. And an added delight is the amazing... More

We were given a gift certificate package for a weekend here and were lucky that the April weekend we arrived was sunny and not too chilly. Friendly welcome and assistance with our luggage. The location is perfect for walking to the local shops and restaurants. The ramp to the parking lot behind the inn is short and rather steep, so... More

This is a top notch, beautiful inn. We have stayed in many B& B's through the years, and this ranks at the TOP in quality. Each room is beautifully decorated with all the extra touches! The private BATHROOM WAS PRISTINE! No sign of a need for renovation. We stayed in a small room, in a comfortable feather bed. Luxury! Don't... More
