We stayed here before years ago under the previous owners, and the new owners, Katya and Siobhan, have transformed the Towne Motel into a pleasant, friendly place to stay. We highly tecommed the Towne Motel as an economical, convenient, and well-maintained place to spend the night, within easy walking distance of central Camden.
Our room suffered from some traffic noise--possibly the only room at Towne Motel directly facing Route 1. The bath is very modest--tiny shower, with one of those shower gel gismos instead of a bottle. The bed was fine and the room clean and comfortably furnished. A few fewer things in the room would make it easier to stow suitcases. There is no onsite dining, except breakfast, which was good, not exceptional.
The Inn is located off Route 1, down a lengthy wooded driveway opening up to a beautifully landscaped property. Being an avid gardener, I immediately admired the lovely gardens and the dedicated staff actively tending to the various gardens. We were greeted by Daina, the owner, at check in and then a tour of the property followed by Hilary, one of the friendly staff members. My husband and I stayed in the E.B. White room, the smallest accommodation in the inn, but very comfortable. The view from our deck was stunning, overlooking Penobscot Bay. Daina has thought of every detail to make sure guests' needs are met, from items provided in the room including water and sodas to the afternoon snacks and homemade desserts. Breakfast every morning was delicious, again the attention to detail was so appreciated. We were even treated to a bald eagle flying by on 2 occasions. The Inn at Sunrise Point had definitely become a new favorite place to stay, meeting our needs of being located on the ocean and a no pet/no smoking property (due to allergies). Daina and her staff definitely make you feel welcome and go out of their way to make sure your stay is memorable.
Lucky to get a brief second stay at Youngtown Inn this summer. The Merciers are so welcoming. They make you feel like an old friend coming home for a visit. As usual, the food is amazingly wonderful. The breakfast ( I had fresh pineapple, out of the oven croissants, locally grown blueberry & peach pancakes, fresh OJ and good coffee) will hold you for the day. Dinner offers an array of 5 star dishes prepared by Manuel in the French chef tradition....swoon worthy. (Dessert souffles are always terrific ends to perfect dinners) Gives "bon appetit" new meaning! Rooms are quaint and lovely. Marianne knows everything that is going on in the area and is a great resource for travelers. Hope I can squeeze in one more stopover this Fall. Loved my room with the porch...great retreat.
What a great place! Our first time in Camden and we picked the right spot. Annette & Terry are very friendly, gracious hosts always with a smile and tips that made our stay very special. Thanks for your hospitality and those great breakfasts! When we return we know where we'll be staying!!
Beautiful inn just steps from the town center. Amazing restaurant and attention to detail throughout, bonus that they're equipped with beach chairs and towels so it's very easy to walk to the public beach just down the road. Beautiful stay, will definitely be back!
I stayed at the Belmont Inn in July 2017 while visiting my daughter at summer camp. It was so comfortable, wonderfully maintained and decorated, had a beautiful wraparound porch and gardens. I sat on a rocking chair each morning, enjoying my coffee looking at the gardens and smelling the salt air. The innkeeper Anita has such a warm personality, and really goes above and beyond to make sure your stay is enjoyable and memorable. I walked into town center, I think it's less than .5 miles away. It is on a quiet side street just off the Main Street, meaning it was wonderfully quiet while sleeping and relaxing on the porch, instead of cars and motorcycles and trucks blaring in your ears all night and all day. Highly recommend the Belmont for anyone traveling in the Camden area!
I stayed here for 3 nights and just wish I had stayed longer. Hosts Manuel and Maryann are so friendly and helpful. Rooms are beautiful. Breakfast is amazing. We also had dinner there two nights which was excellent. Rack of Lamb was especially good
We had an open weekend and wanted to enjoy somewhere close enough to drive (from the Portland area). It had been years since visiting Camden, and our visit this time didn't disappoint. Our stay at the Maine Stay Inn was quick but wonderful! Claudio and Roberta were warm and welcoming, offered nothing but helpful advice if it was needed,and went above and beyond in helping us to receive something left behind. The room was beautiful, clean, and private. Small touches really added to its specialness. We loved it and recommend the Maine Stay Inn to anyone - from Maine or from away!
This motel is my colleagues' go-to in the area. The room was small but cozy, and the in-suite complimentary coffee and tea was much appreciated. The outdoor sitting area was nice to have too. Several excellent restaurants are in walking distance, and a convenience store is nearly next door. Highly recommended!
Enjoyed our 2 nights in lovely Camden at Terry & Annette's Blue Harbor House Inn. Friendly hosts made helpful recommendations about what to see/do in the area; Annette prepared delicious, elegant breakfasts which Terry served like a pro; afternoon teas a delightful plus! Also very conveniently located - just a few minutes walk into town where there are nice restaurants and shops. Would definitely recommend staying here; if we return to Camden, we'd surely reserve again! J&P July 2017
