Stayed 2 nights in September and saw more of Maine than we thought possible with Mary Jo's driving suggestions. The food...unbelievable! Each dish was a work of delicious art - it's like being in France right here in the US. The best duck since La Tour D'Argent. I NEVER write reviews, but this beautiful Inn is beyond wonderful.

Since we have been going to Maine in the early 1990's, we have been staying at the Hartstone, simply because there is no other place we would rather be. Mary Jo and Michael, as well as the entire staff, are exceptional in every aspect. Each stay becomes longer and this June we have extended our stay for 10 days. Michael's meals are to die for!! The rooms are cozy, comfortable, clean and every detail is lovingly manicured to profection. The hospitality is beyond complimentary words. There are two problems - we have to leave Mary Jo and Michael and the lovely rooms, and we leave having gained weight. It is so worth every pound of delicious, gourmet food though - with thanks Michael and Mary Jo for the fond memories past and to come!!

Our stay at the Hatrstone Inn was wonderful. Attention to detail in every area of the operation. Kind and helpful staff, lovely setting, incredible FOOD!!! As we ended each day exploring how lovely it was to go "home". A cocktail was waiting and then a magnificent meal! We hope to visit again!

My husband and I were on a tour of the New England States as a way to celebrate our "Empty Nest"! We chose the The Hartstone Inn after much research. We had never stayed in a B&B and we were not disappointed! The Inn is beautifully decorated and centrally located near the quaint downtown of Camden, Maine. The rooms are spacious and elegant. We stayed in the Mansard room on the third floor which had a private bath. The bath was stocked with spa products, not your little one time use bottles at most places. The bath salts were wonderful as was the whirlpool tub. The bed had a memory foam mattress and pillows that were very comfortable. Another plus was each room had a television, which was not the case with many of the B&Bs we researched. My husband is an avid St. Louis Cardinals fan and they were in the play-offs so this was a bonus for him. We chose not to have dinner at the restaurant at the Inn because unlike me, my husband is not a "foodie". Eric, one of the Inn Keepers, was very helpful and we ate at a local restaurant he recommended and it was excellent. After a wonderful nights rest, breakfast began with a fresh mango-blueberry smoothie, followed by a poached apple with a wonderful cinnamon sauce and whipped cream and the last course was french toast made with freshly baked raisen bread and brown sugar-cumin bacon. My mouth waters just thinking about that bacon. It was an overall ourstanding experience and I highly recommend The Hartstone Inn for your next stay in Camden, Maine!

Had a great stay at the Hartstone Inn in Camden Maine. A very nice property with unexpected amenities such as movies to watch in your room, and tea, coffee and snacks available in the parlor throughout the day. Truly excellent breakfasts and dinners await you as well. Definitely recommend this B&B.

My stay at the Hartstone in Camden is a highlight of my year. The food is out of this world. The breakfast is creative and delicious. Be sure to book a dinner during your time there. The staff is incredibly helpful - great source of info about tings to do in the area.

I had a decent experience at the Hartstone just last week. I stayed for 4 nights but only ate with them once - not because of anything they did or didn't do, I just had other plans. The meal I did have there was delicious and surprising - nothing like what I could make for myself at home. The room was small but stuffed - mostly the bed took up all the room. It was a great bed but huge. Bathroom was teeny tiny but functional. Not a lot of room to do work - and I had a laptop with me for the purposes of doing some work. I ended up sitting it on my lap while on the bed. The Inn is conveniently located. Parking was kind of tight and I was driving a small Ford Focus. Would I stay there again if I ever come to Camden, it would depend on why I was in Camden I suppose.

Everything was as good or better than we remembered it. We would not stay anywhere else in Camden. Excellence in hospitality, food and dining, and the overall experience
