Blue Harbor House Inn
Ranked #2 of 19 Camden B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 27, 2012

Clean, Cozy, Comfy, Convenient, this our favorite B&B for five years in a row! Breakfast is a surprising delight each morning served at your own table. Terry and Annette are the most humble hosts; just read others' reviews. Only a short walk to lovely Camden Harbor or a short drive up Mt. Batte, yet only about 1.5 hrs from a Bar Harbor day trip. If your looking for a place to stay in the Camden area, this is it!

our room was spacious, beautiful, clean, cozy, and smelled great. I love this Inn. We stayed in the room called beach roses maybe? It had its own entrance. it is an easy short walk into the main part of town. I found this place online but I wanted to talk to someone before I booked. i talked to Annette. She sold me. She is so sweet and nice. They make a delicious breakfast every morning and have tea and fresh cookies available all day. I will always stay with them during my visits to Camden. Book early because they book up.

Stayed for 4 nights. Directions easy to follow. Warm reception on arrival. The hosts were very welcoming and attentive. Provided good tips on things to do, places to see and where to eat. Very comfy and clean room. Great shower and fluffy linen.

Breakfasts were a-maz-ing. Endless coffee, juice, granola or poached fruit followed by a very hearty cooked option. The blueberry pancakes with blueberry and coconut cream was a real hit. Other guests suggested their dietary requirements had been met (we didn't have any!)

Off street parking and a 5 minute walk into town were much appreciated. If we come back to Camden we'll be sure to visit here. 10 out of 10.

We have had a fantastic time at blue harbor inn. This is a small B&B with a fantastic service. The inn keepers are very lovely and friendly and the breakfast they serve is 2nd to None.

We will definitely come back next time we visit Maine.

My husband and I recently stayed at Blue Harbor House in Camden, Maine. Terry and Annette were wonderful hosts!! The accommodations were great and breakfast was absolutely delicious! We stayed in 4 other bed and breakfasts during our visit to other towns and the breakfast at Blue Harbor House gets our vote as the BEST!! We can't wait to go back!

Just got back from a three night stay at Blue Harbor House. The house had a very welcoming atmosphere and the inn keepers were friendly. The room was quaint and comfortable. The inn was fairly quiet, so we never had any issues with noise. Our room had a separate A/C unit, so it was easy to adjust the room temperature to our preference. Breakfast was served in a separate dining room with individual tables for each couple/family. We really enjoyed having a separate table so we could enjoy our own conversation. The inn keepers served a two course breakfast each morning starting with something lite, such as yogurt and granola... followed by the main course. Everything was delicious and homemade, and presented beautifully. The downtown area is a short walk from the inn as well. Upon check inn, the inn keepers provided a map of the town and suggestions for dinner. We will definitely stay here again if we are ever back in Camden.

Imagine our delight to return to our room, The Captain's Quarters, to find the wine we'd brought in the claws of an adorably quirky lobster wine caddy! This is the sort of homey, imaginative detail you'll encounter at the Blue Harbor House. You'll might see Annette snipping fresh mint from her garden to steep mint tea for the next morning's breakfast or with her daughter, Jade, in the kitchen baking cookies.

The family resides in Camden year round so they know the ins and outs of town and the best places for day trips. Both Terry and Annette are happy to give advice. And they also have a huge stack of Down East magazine for browsing.

Now for the details:
Location - Unlike some other B&Bs in Camden, this one truly is within a few blocks walking distance from the center of town. There is ample parking so you can leave your car and explore. This is a "town" B&B so you will not have harbor views and the porches mostly look out on the parking lot or the backyard, but it's a very short walk to the water.

The Rooms: Our room was spacious with a kitchenette and a whirlpool tub. There was a comfortable love seat and a cozy chair for watching the large TV and a comfortable king bed. Our hosts are clearly eco-conscious and have opted for natural, high end toiletries in the bathroom. Everything was very clean, but the whirlpool tub is clearly quite old and the crumbling grout made it a little bit unappealing. There is air conditioning and the room was extremely quiet. Overall, it was excellent.

The Breakfast: I save the best for last in this review. Our hosts serve a two-course breakfast every day and they are delightful and creative. Our first morning was a poached pear with yogurt and the best blueberry pancakes ever. The next day was a tea-poached peach with eggs Florentine. I thought I didn't like poached eggs. Well, turns out I don't like poorly poached eggs. When they are poached properly, as Annette does at Blue Harbor House, they are absolutely delicious.

Enjoy!
