Camden Vacation

We had a great stay. Everything was perfect.

We are fortunate to be able to travel....a lot. The Camden Harbour Inn is lovely and we will return hoping that some changes are made. Our bed was awful....we had a king bed room except there isn't a king mattress. It is twin thin mattresses with a worn feather topper. We finally took the topper off. We also found the Inn low staffed during the July 4th weekend. The staff that was there were attentive, courteous and helpful. The Relaix and Chateau brand holds a high standard and we felt the bed especially fell short of that? Our breakfasts were delicious but our dinner was not our favorite of the weekend.


Perfect relaxation in Camden Harbor, ME

From the time we arrived until we left three days later we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Camden Harbor Inn. The staff was friendly and attentive and the meals were first class. A highlight was the couples massage: my therapist was superb, as good as they come.

Incredible service - always wonderful, cheerful, happy people seeing a need before you even realized there was one. The staff learned your name, and even though we were only there 4 days - always knew what service to offer - e.g. sitting on a couch in the lounge - Kate comes over and says I bet you like your coffee in a china cup - she made fresh for the lounge and brought us china cups of coffee instead of paper cups. The food in Natalie's was incredible and what was best of all were the Chef's surprises - every so often while indulging in scrumptious food a new little taste treat would come out of the kitchen for us to enjoy. Never had a complimentary breakfast with lobster on the menu before.


Wonderful place, attentive staff.

We go tp the Camden Harbour Inn each January for our anniversary. It never disappoints. An oasis of calm in our hectic lives, the Inn and its friendly staff is a mini vacation we have grown to love and look forward to. Every detail is thought of.


Fabulous Boutique Hotel in the heart of Camden

4.8 on December 09, 2015

My husband and I stayed for a weekend getaway and it was everything we had in mind, relaxation, pampering, fine wine & food and a cozy fireside to enjoy the Camden by the Sea festival. The Camden Harbour Inn delivered on all accounts. Decorated for the holidays it was stunning, and the quintessential feel of a cozy fireside atmosphere. Twinkling lights, holiday cheer, fabulous food and drinks and attentive staff pampered us. We were kindly upgraded to a suite with views of the ocean, a bed that felt like sleeping on a giant fluffy pillow and exquisite furnishings. I must say I was most blown away by the food, I cannot remember the last time I saw an Amuse Bouche course in Maine...northern Maine for that matter. What a pleasant surprise! Overall, a lovely stay and a wonderful location close to everything in Camden...but just far enough away to feel like you have entered another world.
