Linda and Norman have a wonderful B&B! Delicious breakfasts(and afternoon fresh baked cookies), beautiful and comfortable rooms, and they are ready and willing to help you enjoy your stay in Camden! This is our second visit and we brought other couples who also enjoyed their stay! We will be back every year!

This couple really know how to run an Inn! Everything from cleanliness to comfort were strong points here. They are lovely to talk to, helpful, and your every need is met with a smile. We had a totally enjoyable experience.

My husband and I just returned home from a fabulous visit to Camden, Maine, highlighted by our awesome stay at Captain Swift Inn. We only stay in B&B's when we travel and Linda and Norman have set the bar. Every aspect of our stay was fabulous! Thank you for a wonderful time and we look forward to our next visit.

WOW! What a fantastic experience! We spent 2 nights this week at the Captain Swift Inn. Linda and Norm were most hospitable! They make you feel so welcome. They answered any questions we had about things to do and places to visit. We took a windjammer sail and Linda made our reservations for us. We stayed in the Hunt Room. The bed was most comfortable and there was a fireplace in the room as well. Having WiFi throughout the Inn was an added bonus. And you can't believe the breakfasts!! Over the top! Fresh fruit every morning and everything was homemade...no store bought breakfast items on this menu!! The cookies and lemonade were waiting for us when we arrived which is what we needed after our long trip. This is a real special find and Camden is lucky to have hosts Linda and Norm and this wonderful Inn.

My husband and I have been going to the Captain Swift Inn for about 20 years and it just keeps getting better and better. Innkeepers Linda and Norm have done a lot of remodelling, expanding the dining area as well as adding two beautiful suites. We stayed in The Coastal Hideaway suite last week and just loved the space and the quiet. But all the rooms are lovely and make a guest feel totally relaxed. They say Maine is "the way life should be," and Linda and Norm get that. They love what they do and it shows. We hope to be sharing their home -- and what feels like ours -- for another 20 years!

Room Tip: Rooms in the back of the house are quieter, but even the ones facing Route 1 are terrific. You can...

Walking distance from town center with excellent restaurants on water. Very comfortable with the best breakfast artistically prepared on our trip. The hosts were most cordial and were most anxious to please.

My husband and I have just returned from a trip up the coast of Maine. Our favorite stay in Maine was at The Captain Swift Inn in Camden. It was delightful from beginning to end. On arrival, we were given a tour of this historic place which dates back to 1818, and then to our very charming room, which we loved! We were welcomed with an ice old pitcher of lemonade and a platter of freshly baked cookies, as well as a wide assortment of Keurig coffees and teas. This home was beautiful with original charm and then updated with modern comforts. Everything was spotless and beautiful. Norm and LInda gave us some wonderful tips about local sites and good places for seafood. We enjoyed the sights and dinner and then walked down the street for the short walk to town to enjoy an ice cream and an antique book store. We returned to a wonderful conversation with inkeeper Linda and gentle loving laps from their sweet dog. We had a great night's sleep followed by an amazing generous breakfast with fresh blueberries, yogurt, granola, and delicious hot entree served with warm muffins filled with preserves. Everything was superb! This was a wonderful stay in a beautiful and charming town with some of the most beautiful views anywhere. Highly recommended!
