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!

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!!

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!

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.
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.

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

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.

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.

Thanks for your review! It was difficult to say goodbye to all of you! The best part about being an innkeeper is meeting wonderful guests. Hope to see you again soon.

The Hawthorn Inn has become my Maine home away from home when I come to Maine to take the incredible weekend woodworking classes at Lie-Nielsen Toolworks in nearby Warren. Now, I can’t imagine staying anywhere but the Hawthorn inn. The lovely old house quietly tells its history, the rooms are lovingly appointed with guests’ comfort in mind, and the back garden is simply glorious. Innkeeper Maryanne Shanahan offers a warm and charming welcome, along with knowledgeable and spirited advice about the area. Do you want an extraordinary “French-New England fusion” meal? She knows just the enchanting restaurant. Do you need a lovely walk with which to end the day? She quickly produces a map and draws the route of the three-mile “Camden Loop” for you – and no walk could better feed the spirit and refresh the body. Do you have a special request? She will find a way to grant it. Maryanne and her husband Bill are sophisticated and engaging conversationalists, interested in everything…or just as subtly and considerately ready to recognize when you want peace and quiet. Wait a moment: I said the Hawthorn Inn was my home away from home, but I have to take that back – the breakfasts at Hawthorn Inn are vastly beyond what I ever provide myself at home! Maryanne presents beautiful, fresh, seasonal, healthy, and utterly imaginative breakfasts that are like a still life in the beauty of their presentation, and taste even better than they look. Breakfast at the Hawthorn Inn is a restorative, sustaining pleasure to be savored every morning. My first stay at the Hawthorn Inn convinced me I’d have to return. Now I can’t imagine being in Maine without staying there. May Maryanne and Bill go on welcoming all their grateful guests for many years to come!

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!
