Our stay at the Blackberry Inn was exceptional in all ways. We were very excited about the positive reviews we read on tripadvisor, and even our high expectations were surpassed. The staff (Cyndi, Jim, and Ruthie) were incredibly gracious and warm. As soon as we walked through the door, they had recommendations of places to go and things to do. Our room (the Hidden Garden room) was immaculate. The king-sized bed had the softest sheets I've ever felt, and combined with the feather bed atop the mattress, we had luxurient nights of sleep. The bathroom had both a shower and a large jacuzzi tup. There was an electric fireplace that kept our room warm and cozy (we loved the romance of it as well!) and we were loathe to leave the inn, in spite of all the charm of Camden's town center.
One thing that cannot be understated is the FOOD!! Jim spent a few years in culinary school, and the meals we ate there (including a five-course dinner on New Year's Eve) were some of the best of my life! That may sound like an exaggeration, but I promise you...it's not! Everything was fresh and amazing. They were also very quick to accomodate any requests or changes that we wanted.
There is an honor bar stocked with wine, local micro-brews, water, and soda. In the main house, we also enjoyed tea, coffee, and sweet treats that are kept out at all times.
I also have to mention an incredible massage that I received. Ruthie was kind enough to book this appointment for me prior to my arrival. Just a short walk from the inn, Aiyana Athenian (at the wellness center in the yellow house) gave me one of the best treatments I've ever gotten. I went to massage therapy school and therefore have both high standards and knowledge of how a massage "should" be. I walked out of my appointment feeling blissfully unwound and astounded at her skill. She has a true gift. If you stay at the inn (and why wouldn't you given all of the excellent reviews on this site?) you MUST book an appointment. The rate is reasonable ($60 for an hour and $90 for an hour and a half) and incredibly worth it. The number is [--].
We can't wait to return. We love going to bed and breakfasts around New England. During the summer months, I am sure that Camden is bustling and too crowded for our taste. But in the quiet of the off-season, we have found our perfect retreat. A huge thanks to Cyndi, Jim, and Ruthie for truly making our year!!
