About

Located on a knoll with superb views of the harbor, Mount Battie and Penobscot Bay and less than a five-minute walk from the center of the village, the Inn has offered exceptional hospitality since 1874. Over the years, many prominent and famous people have stayed at the Inn. Walt Disney even selected it to be his "fairytale castle" when he visited Camden. In 2007 the Inn has been completely renovated and offers 18 deluxe guestrooms and suites with breathtaking views of the bay, harbor and mountains. All rooms are fitted with the finest amenities and some rooms have a fireplace and/or private decks to enjoy. With Natalie’s restaurant the Camden Harbour Inn offers the best and most spectacular fine dining experience in town. Our professional crew will do the utmost to make your stay unforgettable.

Nice... but

3.2 on October 20, 2014

Nice, but expensive for what you get.


A lovely inn

4.6 on October 13, 2014

Our Sumatra room was pretty and the bed supremely comfortable. Tiny details they should fix: lights in. entry to the room and on desk are crooked or warped. Weather strip hangs down into view in one window. Fabulous service and breakfast.

Beautiful views from our room which was lovely as expected but starting to look a bit tired. Need to keep the rooms in top shape to command the price they are. Very disappointed in the service overall. The inn boasts superb concierge service for your "experience" and we were twice directed to try open table when requesting a local dinner reservation. Really?


very nice but several areas to be improved

3.0 on October 12, 2014

very nice room, bed not too confortable. amazing shower but ancient and noisy air condition . dinner was nice, but too much fuss and certainly not even vaguely comparable to for ex 11 Madison in NYork. breakfast to be revisited since every morning it was shambles in terms of service. For a Relais Chateau i would have expected much more


Wow!! An amazing Inn

This is a great b&b more or less. It is small and quaint, and very hospitable. Breakfast is fantastic and service all around is top notch! Walking distance to downtown Camden. We paid $400/night which for me is a little pricey, but we did enjoy our stay. Complimentary full breakfast was a nice perk that we did not expect. I would recommend to a friend.


Top notch

Excellent bed and breakfast. Natalie's is one of the top restaurants in Maine and deserving of it's many awards.


Camden Harbour Inn - A pearl

5 on August 10, 2014

This is a great address. Stay at CHI is an overall experience. Thoughtful service, astonishingly equipped rooms and suites (we got free upgrade to superior suite for our three nights stay), well-maintained estate, creative and tasteful restaurant (breakfast as well dining) . Briefly worth every dollar. Strongly suggested. We will come back in this peaceful place.


Outstanding!!!!

Spent two nights in July 2014. Best meal ever at Natalie's. Breakfast also superb. Staff was friendly knowledgable and hardworking!!!! Would love to go back and would highly recommend.


Stairs were a challenge but ultimately worth it

4.0 on July 23, 2014

We're not experienced B&B-ers so we didn't realize we should have asked about stairs. When we arrived, we discovered we were on the third floor -- first flight was not bad but the second flight of stairs were very narrow and steep. For younger guests, not so much of a problem but with a bum knee, that was an issue. The room was nicely decorated but the folks who designed the bath really needed to talk to a woman first -- small vanity, no open shelves, odd niche for kleenex and a shower that requires one to be inside under the spray before the water can be turned on. However, dinner at Natalie's was spectacular -- especially the wine-pairing with Mika and the rest of the excellent staff. We will definitely return despite the cost but we'll be much more careful about designating the second floor.
