Great Attention to Personal Service

Great location close to center of town. Walked to restaurants both nights. Our host Debbie was fantastic and continuously offered to help us in any way -- very accommodating and friendly. Beautiful antique decor in main house common areas. We will be back in the future!


Perfect Mother/Daughters Getaway

Lisa was so awesome! We instantly felt at home. Lisa made sure we had everything we needed and the inn was beautiful. Within walking distance from downtown Camden and restaurants. Quick ride to Cellardoor Winery. Can't wait to go back!!


Wonderful Stay

4.0 on June 18, 2017

What a beautiful B&B --- spacious rooms, gracious hosts, great amenities, a view of the harbor from the private patio and a back gate path to the dining and shopping in Camden! Looking forward to visiting again. Should really be a higher rating but couldn't get Outstanding to click.


Wonderful Building, People, Location, Service . . .

5 on May 30, 2017

We stayed in Camden for two nights, my husband and I along with our 3 year-old son. The room was beautiful, well-kept, and SUPER clean. Our son loved the balcony, large Jacuzzi tub, and the small stream that borders the property on one side. The owners, Lisa and Ted, along with other staff were extremely accommodating, ensuring that every aspect of our stay in Camden was perfect and that our needs/wants were attended to. Everyone was also attentive to our son, making this an enjoyable experience for him as well. Breakfast was simply delicious - fresh and healthy fuel to start the day. The Hawthorn Inn is also located in a fabulous location, close to the shops and restaurants. I highly recommend this Bed and Breakfast for anyone looking for that extra special experience while staying in Camden!


Beautiful, romantic getaway in a lovely setting.

I always admired this B&B when driving through Camden. My stay met all my expectations. It is one of, if not the most, beautiful and elegant B&B's I've stayed at. The hosts are gracious, and it is convenient to the main street of Camden, where most of the shops and restaurants are located. I recommend it highly.

Innkeeper Response
We are humbled by your compliments. We consider ourselves very fortunate to have found such a lovely property so close to town. Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with others. We hope that we have the opportunity to host you again in the future.

Hospitable B&B

5 on November 17, 2016

The hallmark of the Hawthorn Inn is the hospitality and attention to every detail by Lisa and Ted. Every need is addressed and - one is made to feel truly "at home". This complements the outstanding location in the coastal village of Camden, ME. Everything in the town is mere steps away, inviting those that enjoy the outdoors to take advantage of everything that Camden has to offer. We highly recommend the Hawthorn Inn and definitely plan to make another visit.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for your review. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay.

Great Find

5 on May 08, 2016

My wife and I just wanted to celebrate our anniversary in New England off season to discover places to return too. We found the Hawthorn Inn to be that place. Service, inn keepers, location, amenities all top notch. We definitely will be back here.


Outstanding Experience

5 on July 27, 2015

Immaculate, friendly and a great location to walk to any venue in Camden. Ted and Lisa together with their staff provide an atmosphere which that makes it difficult to say goodbye. You are treated like family and enjoy all the conveniences of being at home but without the chores which go with being at home. The breakfasts were delicious and the afternoon snacks baked by Lisa were extraordinary. We look forward to returning for a longer stay. We would have completed each circle but for some reason the program would not accept the fifth "completed circle." Ted, Lisa and staff please continue your fine work, we had a great time. Tom & Laura - Fairfield, CT

About the innkeepers

Ted and Lisa stayed at a B&B 10 years ago. The innkeepers defined themselves as corporate refugees. They were loving their lifestyle change. We were hooked. We spent the next 10 years trying to figure how when and how to make it happen. We made the leap in June 2014. Owning the Hawthorn Inn has been everything that we dreamed it would be and then some. We love hearing our guests stories and can't wait to hear yours!
