Clean and Friendly

4.2 on July 15, 2016

Had a very nice stay at the Blue Harbor Inn. Both Terry and Annette were welcoming and friendly. Breakfast was very good and they are willing to accommodate your dietary needs. Stayed in the Harbor Haven Room. Loved the Homedics soothing sound machine. Shower was very hot. Location was great. Away from the main area but close enough to walk to it.

Everything about Terry and Annette's B&B was fabulous! Perfect location -within walking distance of shops and restaurants. They have excellent suggestions of where you should go for sightseeing and meals. But the best thing by far was Annette's breakfasts! Delicious! And kept us full till dinner time. Would definitely come back.

Stayed here during the 4th of July weekend with my wife. Annette and Terry are gracious hosts and the breakfasts are amazing. Downtown Camden is just a few minutes walk. All in all, a wonderful place to stay and relax.

Wonderful breakfasts!

Annette's breakfasts were highlight of stay. Creative and delicious. House location has pluses and minuses. Proximity to Camden Harbor, shops, restaurants is plus. Elm Street is US Highway 1. Front rooms are next to road which is busy with trucks all night. Rooms have ear plugs and sound music machines for a reason. When all 11 bedrooms are occupied, common areas can be busy. Terry and Annette do well to handle as many as 20 guests.


More Than A Cup of Tea

4.2 on September 01, 2014

In fact, much more than a proper cup... sugar, cream, home made cookies too in the afternoons! Our stay at the Blue Harbor House in August 2014 was pretty flawless actually. We have stayed at a number of B&B style Inns of many varieties. Terry and Anne know how to provide for their guests at a high quality level of service and amenities. The room we had boasted a seating area, fire place full tub, and shower stall, turkish towels and robes, sound machine, ( might be needful as it is on main road) air conditioning, etc. Nice bed linens and very clean. Decor still managed to be somewhat in keeping with the historic home that is Blue Harbor House. You really wanted for nothing as far as comfort goes. Very well thought out! Some rooms do require climbing a set of stairs. We did not find that to be a problem for us.The side porch is a lovely place to sit with your own glass of wine in the evenings with other guests, or daytime admiring the flowers in all the boxes and containers. I don't know where they find the time for all of that in addition to running an Inn! Blue Harbor Inn is easy walking distance to shops and all manner of dining in the town of Camden. The breakfasts each morning were textbook perfect- and again, we have stayed at a many places. Soft music in the morning, hot tea and coffee, china table settings, fresh fruit and beautifully presented food..what's not to like? Our hosts were very pleasant and knowledgeable about the area and were very willing to give information if you wanted it.Parking at the Inn was adequate. Great stay-highly recommended.


Would stay again

4.4 on August 21, 2014

We stayed in Crow's Nest: a small room but big enough for the two of us + luggage. Also, the bathroom is small but has a nice, hot and spacious shower. This room has everything you need for a great time on the coast of Maine. What made this B&B especially great was the friendliness and hositality of its owners: Annette and Terry. They made us feel welcome and at home, had great advice about activities for the day and restaurant tips in the evening. Also, they always had time for a small chat, finding a perfect balance in showing interest and keeping a professional distance. Terry and Annette seem to enjoy hosting their guests and do an outstanding job at it. I would love to come back and stay with them again! In the meantime, I'll try to recreate some of their delicious breakfasts at home!
