The service and food were amazing, as is the property's situation. Rooms are individualized and lovely. The price of the rooms is not a great value...feels a bit overpriced.

Beautiful weekend at Camden Harbour

I didn't know what to expect - but was pleasantly surprised on all accounts. The food was wonderful - our room (Ceylon) spacious and charming -- and the service was outstanding. Wonderful to sit on the porch and take in Penobscot Bay with a glass of wine and good book. Can't recommend it highly enough.

Returned to Camden 35 years later in style!

An absolutely amazing vacation

We stayed for a week in the Surinam Suite--we had not had an extended vacation since our honeymoon 10 years ago. From the moment we stepped on the premises we were surrounded by amazing views, welcoming staff and a room that simply begged us to relax. We would stay here again in an instant!

Warmed by the fire and the dinner service!

We were assigned a luxurious room to celebrate a special birthday. Hence, the fireplace and all the logs brought in to build a superb fire. Attention to our needs was foremost in our conversations with the staff: the need for additional kindling, the suggestion of a more delicious wine with dinner, the suggestion of the lobster Benedict for breakfast . Attentive staff, but not cloying in their attention.

Glorious spot on the Maine Coast

The Camden Harbour Inn is a spectacular property. With one of Maine's best restaurants, this gloriously chic and sophisticated property charms with nary a stripe, ship painting, anchor or binnacle in sight. Its only drawback is a steep and narrow stairway leading to the Inn's gorgeous guest rooms and suites.

Our Ceylon room was clean, loved the feather bed, enjoyed our welcome note and complimentary wine, breakfast was excellent, and the parting gift was a surprise. Perfect location too. We would love to come back and stay longer next time.

We are proud to announce that Camden's best restaurant, Natalie's, is reopening at the Camden Harbour Inn. Chef de Cuisine Lawrence Klang and his crew will create an unforgettable dining experience. The fully air-conditioned restaurant features dramatic views of the harbor and Mount Battie, and has heated decks. Natalie's is designed after an early 1900s French restaurant with contemporary elements. Reservations are strongly recommended
