Birthday escape

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

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.

U[ the hill from the harbor, this is a lovely and romantic spot/ The restaurant is superb, the staff gracious indeed.


A bit pricey for what it is

3.8 on July 17, 2017

A bit pricey for what it is, excellent service. Very nice rooms but with an old, small, not upgraded bathroom. The bed was a bit too soft for my taste. Breakfast is excellent but we were unlucky dining at Natalie's. The vegetarian menu announced on the website was not available.


A Really Nice Place

We stayed over Mother's Day weekend, and it was very special. I could not have been more pleased with every aspect of our stay. Natalie's Restaurant was amazing.

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.
