It's the setting that sets us apart. We're located on the waterside of the ocean view section of Camden's historic district, with spectacular glass walled views of Camden's only two castles and the sea, right from your bed! Count the stars across the bay and wake up to bold Maine Coast views. Bright and airy charm of classic 1856 cape architecture, wide pine floors, beams, clawfoot tubs, skylights, ceiling fans and stained glass. Private balconies.
Simply put, there IS no other like it in Camden. The size of two rooms, its entire oceanview wall is glass with doors thru it your own private balcony with furniture overlooking Maine's only two castles and the sea. The 180 degree sunsets and sunrises from your king sized, plush bedding are unforgettable. Light dusty rose wall to wall carpeting. A tiled sunken area with fireplace, bistro table and chairs looks out two more bay windows to the main castle and ocean. A flowered loveseat and lounge chair enhance relaxation. Locally made stained glass, ceiling fan, and Nantucket mirrors.
The Boat Room- rooms on the Maine coast with an understated, traditional seafaring theme. Sculptured wallpaper, warm beige carpeting with a large section of 1856 wide pumpkin pine flooring purposely left exposed. &quot;Ship-like&quot; bathroom with wainscoting. Queen bed with tan and black bedding. Large glass writing table and lounge chair. Ceiling fan and a unique trapezoid window/door leads to your private sitting balcony for two, to view one castle and the bay. Historic black and white photographs of Maine schooners under sail adorn the sunny walls.
Bright summery colors frame this open, sunny, private wing with a large private deck, glider, table and chairs. Quiet light grey berber carpeting contrasted by bright red countertops and drawer pulls, antique white walls, queen bed, and full red sleeper. The suite feels like a living room, kitchen and bedroom with no walls, so the view can be seen anywhere in the space. The many birds and lovely setting with some ocean peeks provides a very special relaxation. Inspiring, colorful art create a special feel. Newer full kitchen with island seating is perfect for discounted weekly rental.

This is a small B&B - located close enough to town to enjoy a walk to all the shops and restaurants. You can relax in the peaceful backyard or enjoy the unbelievable views from the upper and lower decks. Bill the owner is a wonderful host and will steer you right on selections for restaurants and things to do in Camden. This is not a fancy place but it had I all I needed for a relaxing and wonderful visit to Camden.
While here, this guest explained that she had looked at the Inn on line for many many months and finally "just had to come" because she was so intrigued. While I'm not sure what this guest fancies as "not fancy" as she calls the Inn, after all her many many views, she certainly knew we were a historic inn so probably not "fancy" like a newer Inn might be. We are not glitzy. Her comment of "not fancy" was most likely actually meant as a compliment. We strive for a special ambiance which always elicits much praise, but "not fancy" isn't the usual description we get. as it may infer something the guest did not intend to, and that we are not.
