My husband and I stayed at the Hartstone Inn for 3 nights at the end of October 2013 during a 2 week tour of New England. The inn is excellently located very close to all amenities (restaurants, cafes, stores etc.) in the lovely town of Camden. Our room (the Loft) was very spacious, comfortable, well appointed and had a lovely big fireplace with a seating area.
We felt however that there was something very impersonal about our stay there. The staff - while pleasant enough - were business like rather than friendly. In particular, the service at breakfast was nothing like what we had experienced in other New England inns on our trip. There was no choice offered - the food was just brought to your table whether it was something you liked or not - and it all seemed really rushed, as though they just wanted to get everyone in and out as quickly as possible. This actually led us to go elsewhere for breakfast on one of the mornings - we went to Boynton's (lovely!) in the village and had a leisurely breakfast there instead.
Our experience at the Hartstone Inn was somewhat disappointing which is a shame as it is really a lovely inn......but there was nothing about our experience there that would make us want to go back I'm afraid.
