Kristen and Jesse are very accommodating friendly owners. We enjoyed our stay in the Camden area very much and would highly recommend the Windward House.

A delightful, centrally located B&B

We picked the most perfect B&B in Camden. It was exceptionally clean, nicely decorated and convenient to the quaint stores in the town. It had an aire of peacefullness and relaxation.

My wife and I enjoyed a nice romantic weekend getaway in the off-season while staying at the Camden Windward House. We enjoyed winter scenery in coastal Maine, went skiing at the Camden Snow Bowl and visited the Owl's Head Transportation Museum. Kristi and Jesse were wonderful hosts and the breakfasts were fantastic! Their B + B is conveniently located with a very short walk to downtown Camden's shops and restaurants. We highly recommend the Camden Windward House if you are planning a trip to the Mid-coast area of Maine and enjoy staying at B+B's.

The Camden Windward House was a great place to stay. It was an easy walk into town. The room was spacious, bed comfortable, and cooked to order breakfast delicious. Plenty of parking in the back of the house. Innkeepers Kristi and Jesse were very friendly and helpful.

Windward B&B - A fantastic place to stay!

5 on July 05, 2010

My wife and I snuck up to Camden for a quiet weekend away from Washington, DC. We had a GREAT time in Camden--the Windard B&B accomodations were fantastic. The B&B is located a very short walk (less than 1/4 mile) from Camden--near all the restuarants and shops. We stayed in the Quarterdeck Suite. The view of Mt. Battie from the private deck and the B&B gardens was spectacular; the privacy of the deck allowed us to enjoy the view along with the fruit and cheese tray, that Kristie delivered, with a nice bottle of wine. (And the entertainment of the 2 red squirrels in the nearby trees was something money can't buy!) The room was spacious, neat, clean, fresh and airey--the cathedral ceilings with the skylights were an added bonus. The breakfasts were awesome--the portions were plentiful, the selections were healthy and the flavor was outstanding. The service was the best I've seen--my wife and I stay frequently at B&Bs. Thanks Kristie for a super long weekend!

A world of down home luxury, steps away from dowtown Camden

Kristi and Jesse made us feel welcome and cared for. The room was heavenly with a jacuzzi tub and a view looking out at the mountains. We were able to explore Camden on foot and, thanks to a great restaurant recommendation from the innkeepers, we enjoyed fabulous dinners at Atlantica. A weekend at the Windward will blow you away!

A nice place in Camden run by great people

Spent five days in May 2010 at the Camden Windward House Bed & Breakfast with Kristi and Jesse. Our suite was great, the hotel was well kept and very clean and the breakfasts were fantastic. Kristi and Jesse are wonderful hosts and Jesse is quite the breakfast chef. The Widward is very close to the middle of Camden and within walking distance of all of the shops, restaurants and the harbor. I fly fish and Kristi set me up with a wonderful guide (Don Kliener - Maine Outdoors) and I enjoyed two great days of fly fishing in lakes and rivers near Camden. Jesse accomodated this by making me breakfast early both days. His food was great particularly the blueberry pancakes. My wife and I look forward to our return trip to Camden and the Windward House.
