Wonderful B&B in Camden, Maine

5 on October 14, 2016

We stayed at Camden Maine Stay Inn for our 15 anniversary. We had stayed here 15 years ago and we loved it so much we came back. Although different owners than our first stay, our experience was has wonderful as the first time. We loved our room (Common Ground Suite), the breakfasts were delicious and the owners were fun to be around. A few days after we arrived home, we received a large envelope from the owners containing a souvenir we left behind that we didn't realize that we forgot. Great experience and would definitely stay here again!

Great location for town exploration

The owners are fabulous hosts and full of local knowledge and great itinerary suggestions. I very much enjoyed all the common rooms. Their breakfast room out on the porch is really fabulous and the breakfast was always superb.

Minor tune-up needed

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!

Charm and splendor

5 on September 13, 2012

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."
