All rooms are fitted with the finest amenities and some rooms have a fireplace and/or private decks to enjoy.

A Delight

4.6 on January 16, 2018

Great Experience

4.4 on January 05, 2018

I did not know what to expect coming in as the online pictures show very little. But the Inn is gorgeous as are the rooms. Natalie's was delightful. The real star of the Inn is the staff- they are gems!


December in Camden

Fabulous winter weekend - great place to stay for morning hikes, cosy afternoons in the room with a roaring log fire, snappy evening cocktails. Very complicated food on tasting menu, too complicated for me when such wonderful local produce. Overall though a terrific time, highly recommended!

The staff at the Inn is outstanding! The carpeting and airconditioning could use some attention.


Exceptional stay

Beginning with a glass of sparkling wine on a limited sail trip with maitre Sven, we must say that this was our best experience in the US. My wife is French and a former chef and she and I thoroughly enjoyed the restaurant with Chris and Shelby as the chefs. Try the lobster menu -- five different ways to prepare lobster. Congratulations to the exceptional help that made our five day stay wonderful -- including four dinners. Sven, Greg, Nikki, Rob, Oscar and, of course hail to the chefs, Chris and Shelby -- we will be booking next year at the same time. Paradise.

Our stay at Camden harbor inn was wonderful! We were greeted with smiles by the friendly staff. Our room was very comfortable. The inn was located in a perfect position downtown for shopping and dining. Natalie’s was absolutely fantastic. Walking right downstairs to dinner was such a great. Wonderful experience

Perfect summer weekend getaway

4.6 on August 07, 2017

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!


Beautiful B&B, charming town.
