We stayed here at the end of September and had a great time. The attention to detail was outstanding. The inn owners were fantastic and had great ideas on how to enjoy the local area. The breakfast was top notch and we really enjoyed being treated like family. The view from the porch is amazing and can be enjoyed at any time with a great cup of coffee and cookie that was homemade

The hosts at the Timbecliffe inn are very accomodating, and welcome you into their home as if it were your own.
We stayed in the 1620 chamber and our room was very well appointed. However, if you have people in your party who are large, be aware the bathroom in this room is very small. This was minor for us, but definately an observation for review.
Overall we had a wonderful experience at this B&B.

Timbercliffe is run by a nice couple who made us very welcome and did everything they could to make our stay perfect. We found the place on the net after someone recommended the Camden area. As it turned out both were great.

The place is beautifully maintained top to bottom and looks like the perfect New England house. A picture postcard place in every sense.

The room was very nicely laid out and decorated. All the fittings and accessories (i.e. towels and bedding) in the room and bath were top quality. The bedroom was a little cramped but only because it had loads of useful furniture and fittings. We had plenty of cupboard space.

We had the run of the house with use of a great Living room (with fire lit to take of the unexpected August chill - really!!. 14oC daytime temp in Boston), reading room, dining room, kitchen with provisions, patio and porch. Only problem we had was not enough time to take advantage of it all.

We had a view from our room over the bay, but we were a bit inland. Breakfast was all cooked from scratch and the same tip-top quality.

The house is a little way north of Camden town centre, a very quick drive but I guess a long walk which would still be OK if you have time on your hands. The town is very nice. There's a selection of restaurants and the owners recommended a place to us we don't like seafood that much. A common problem in fishing area like this. We spent much of the next day there and still didn't get to see it all. Had a good lunch and browsed around the nice mix of shops. We hope to return and spend more time in the future.

Overall a great place to stay. A bit expensive but you do get quality in return.

We recently spent two nights in mid August at the Timbercliffe & had a wonderful time. The hosts Karen & Dave are warm friendly & run a super operation with careful attention to every detail. They’re not from Camden, but have been in the area long enough to be an excellent source on local attractions & restaurants. Our room was clean & spotless. The bed was one of the most comfortable of the entire trip. They are located about a mile from the heart of downtown, which makes for a nice & scenic walk. We left the car parked for most of our stay. Breakfast was on the porch & delicious both days. I wish the superb bacon they served was available in the Midwest. We had a delightful stay at a first class B&B. The Timbercliffe is highly recommended.

My wife and I recently had the pleasure of staying at Timbercliffe. We arrived in Camden without reservations and were surprised to find that 4 of the top 5 TripAdvisor-reviewed B&Bs were available for the night (a slow Wednesday).

Immediately, we realized that Timbercliffe was far better than the other options. First, the inn is beautifully and tastefully decorated. Second, Karen and Dave are wonderful people who make you feel like you are the only guest. They are helpful and entertaining while also providing guests with personal space. Finally, the rooms themselves are fantastic -- from the water pressure in the showers to the linens on the beds.

I've stayed in countless 5-star resorts throughout the U.S., and I truly believe Timbercliffe compares well with any of those places.

I cannot wait to return.

We just got back from 5 nights at the Timbercliffe... can I just say it was amazing from start to finish?

The FOOD was incredible - the Inn itself was gorgeous - Karen and Dave were the best hosts EVER.

They were knowledgeable about the area and told us the best places to see and eat - and they were right!

I was able to get Caffrey kisses every day, which meant SO much to me.

STAY here. Seriously - you can't get a better value anywhere in Camden.

My husband and I just spent 2 nights at the Timbercliffe Cottage, and had a wonderful experience. The B&B is beautiful and the location is great...about a 10 to 15-minute walk to downtown. The innkeepers, Dave & Karen, were extremely helpful and accommodating. In fact, when I had an issue with a bed due to a back condition, they went above and beyond in accommodating us and making sure I was comfortable. The food was delicious, and the innkeepers seemed truly interested in making sure that their guests had a positive experience and enjoyed their stay in Camden. I booked the Timbercliffe based on other people's positive reviews on TripAdvisor, and couldn't agree more with all the nice things others said about Timbercliffe Cottage.
