The Camden Maine Stay Inn is a grand old home located in the historic district of one of America's most beautiful seaside villages. Come and taste the History and the Tradition of Maine with the Italian accent of Roberta and Claudio Latanza.

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."

Clean, comfortable rooms, lovely grounds and gardens. Best Maine blueberry pancakes I have every tasted. Location within walking distance of town. A delightful stop on the way to Bar Harbor, Maine. Maria-Plano Texas

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.

You don't want to miss staying at the Camden Maine Stay Inn! It is a lovely B&B with very gracious and charming hosts. We were sorry that we could only stay one night. It will be a destination for us in the future.

We spent two nights at this inn. It was a wonderful experience from begining to end. We had just gotten off a week on a windjammer and really enjoyed the spaciousness and luxury. The hosts, Claudio and Roberta were helpful in every way. When we needed to leave before breakfast to catch our plane they provided a quick meal for us. The rooms were comfortable and large, including not only a bed but a full sitting area. Rooms are decorated with antiques and period furniture. We hope to return next time we are in the area.

I am not sure where to begin with my praise of this wonderful gem of an inn. My wife, three teenage daughters and I recently spent four days at the Maine Stay Inn. The inn is steeped with New England charm. Its grounds are beautiful and meticulously maintained. The furnishings in both the rooms and common areas, including many antiques from Europe, are elegant and tasteful. The breakfasts are delicous and anything but routine. The innkeepers, Claudio and Roberta, are gracious and helpful and, for travelers from abroad, are fluent in Italian, Spanish, French and German. And, all of these wonderful attributes come together in the beautiful coastal town of Camden. Staying and enjoying a few days at the Maine Stay Inn should be be a part of every discerning traveler's plans when they come to Maine.

Lured by the excellent website, we reserved rooms for 3 days. The Inn is very close to the main street ...I had no trouble walking into town, even with 'dicey' knees. The Latanazas have anticipated every wish and I am very finicky. Breakfast was delicious, varied and elegantly served. The Inn is a visual masterpiece and the garden, which is extensive and designed by Mrs. Latanza, allows one to disappear from the world. We look forward to another visit! J. Ehrlich
