“Incredible Get Away Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I met with friends for Christmas By The Sea in Camden. Our friends found this inn and recommended we stay. Our past experience with inns has been less than favorable however, Maryanne was fantastic! The breakfasts she made for us were amazing and the location of her inn to downtown and the weekend long festivities was great! Even with the cold we were close enough to walk to everything we wished to attend. Maryanne was kind enough to book our evening reservations at 2 fantastic local restaurants and her recommendations were spot on! We are looking forward to seeing them again soon!

Lovely hotel, nice decor and very freindly staff. We got a free upgrade when we stayed. Also, my wife and I got engaged here so it is one place we will never forget. The breakfast was very very nice especially. Short walk to very nice town.

Room Tip: Stay in the turret room it is worth the extra money.

We so enjoyed our stay this past weekend at Bill and Maryanne's beautiful home in Camden- We came for Camden's Christmas by the Sea celebration with another couple and we couldn't have been more happy with the entire experience. The Inn was beautifully decorated for Christmas and was such a beautiful sight to see as we arrived just after dark. Maryanne and Bill went above and beyond to make us feel welcome- we were given some suggestions for dining and Maryanne made us reservations at Francine's Bistro, which was fabulous! Our room was on the second floor and was gorgeous with a four poster bed and a huge bathroom with a beautiful claw foot tub- the bed linens were heavenly as was the bed itself! Now onto the breakfast...both mornings were scrumptious!! I especially enjoyed her homemade granola with yogurt and fruit- plenty of juice and coffee as well as second helpings for anyone wishing so. We were encouraged to enjoy the living area's with our friends which was very nice. We feel very fortunate to have found such a lovely bed and breakfast in one of our favorite Maine destinations, and we will definitely be back soon!

My husband and I recently spent our 1st anniversary at this beautiful inn. The inn is an easy walk to downtown Camden and with the leaves off the trees, we could view the harbor from our room. The room was beautifully appointed and the bed was very comfortable with wonderfully soft cotton sheets. The gas fireplace was nice to enjoy on a cool late fall night but the large balcony off the room would have been terrific had we been there during Maine's warmer months. The innkeepers knew it was our anniversary and a bottle of sparkling wine awaited us in our room when we arrived. Breakfast the next morning was delicious! Such wonderful food, fun conversation and such great service! I would highly recommend this inn. We were thrilled with our experience!

Room Tip: This inn has beautiful rooms in the main house but also rooms in the carriage house right next door...

We stayed for 2 nights in early October. My husband and I stayed in the Watney room on the first floor of the Carriage House. Our son and daughter-in-law stayed in the Brougham on the second floor of the Carriage House. Both were very nice rooms. Loved the large bathroom with large shower. Would have loved to have sat out on the private porch except the weather was nice and we had planned too many things to see and do. Mary Ann had to be away but her husband Bill took good care of us. He even picked up a birthday cake that Mary Ann had ordered for us as a surprise for our daughter-in-law and he set it up with tea in a cozy corner of the main house so we could surprise her. Beds were comfortable and the breakfasts and service were excellent.

We loved our time at the Hawthorne Inn. Mary Anne was lovely and so helpful with her suggestions for restaurants and activities in the area, including our drive up the coast as we left Camden. Breakfasts were superb and beautifully presented.

My husband and I have stayed in many B&B's and Inns over the years and this was simply the best. Our room was very comfortable and well-appointed, and the library, games and puzzles would have been appreciated if the weather hadn't been so beautiful. We also enjoyed sitting on the porch overlooking the garden as a break in our activities. The breakfast was not only delicious, it was elegantly served and amazingly healthy. Maryanne describes each dish in the morning so it can be customized if you shouldn't eat or don't care for an ingredient. (While I thought each dish was exquisite as is, my husband was able to have her easily eliminate something he wouldn't enjoy.) I've never encountered this previously and it was so thoughtful. The Inn's location is perfect if you enjoy walking. It's near a challenging hike in Camden Hills State Park and an easy walk to restaurants, shops and the harbor. Maryanne and Bill are warm and entertaining people; I was amazed at how quickly they made each newly arriving couple feel welcome. (As we stayed 4 nights, we had an opportunity to see them in action!) Be sure to ask them to recommend restaurants and activities; we enjoyed it all. The area around Camden has a lot to offer and we'll be back to stay with them again. If I have a last suggestion, it would be to try to stay more than a night or two in order to really enjoy the Inn.

Room Tip: Check the website and if you're still in doubt, call Maryanne and describe your preferences. She...
