While this is a lovely property, the decorating would benefit from some simplification. Artificial flowers, doilies, and knick knacks make the rooms look dated. Also, there were delicious cookies on the first day and none after that. The innkeepers are delightful and the inn is sparkling lean.

No detail escaped Roberta and Claudio in our three night Maine Stay Inn visit last week. Each room was decorated as a piece of art. I actually photographed many of the rooms so that I could include them in my vacation album. The breakfasts were delcious from poached pears to oven salsa omelets and fresh blueberry pancakes -- with recipes that they were eager to share. The breakfast room with fresh placements and napkins in different colors each day, overlooked the gorgeous, sunny gardens. Our room was elegant and so comfortable, decorated in a country fair theme. And, the entire inn was spotless and shiny!

Camden is a wonderful haven to leave all worries behind. The beautiful surroundings of the B&B with it's Harbor and Downtown area were enjoyable. Above all, the B&B experience alone was beyond our expectations with it's decorative charm and elegant furnishings. Claudio & Roberta could not do enough to make one's visit a pleasant experience. They were so very caring and provided personal assistance and information to various activities of the area. Our room was private with all the necessary amenaties. Breakfast was delicious and drinks were available throughout the day. We would not hesitatate to return to the Camden Maine Stay Inn. "There are only two ways to live your life. One is to travel our wonderful country. The other is to share your experience with others."

Our visit to this B&B was fantastic. Claudio and Roberta were excellent hosts providing us with information about the area as well as delicious food and beautiful surroundings. We shared a bond since we both had lived in Rome, Italy. Everything was clean and comfortable. We would certainly recommend Maine Stay Inn to anyone traveling in this area of Maine.
