We are located in the mid-coast region of Maine in the quaint town of Camden; a beautiful seaside village. Our guestrooms are spacious and comfortable and suitable for all types of travelers (families, business. girlfriend getaway or romantic retreat). A delicious complimentary full breakfast is served each morning of your stay. Enjoy our home as you relax and step back to a time to the grace of an era gone by.
Between 8:00 and 9:30 each morning, you’ll be served a full, hearty breakfast in the dining room. The menu changes daily, but always features inn specialties such as; breakfast casseroles, stuffed French toast, Belgian waffles with fresh fruit, crepes Chantilly and Crème Brulée French toast.
Captain Frank Swift established Maine’s first passenger schooner fleet while living in this white clapboard village landmark inn. Originally built for lumber merchant Simon Hunt during the presidency of James Madison, our house retains it’s wonderful wide pine floors, chair rails, exposed beams, intricate moldings, and five fireplaces; one with a beehive oven.
The inn is open year round. Summers are ideal here on the coast, and in the autumn the foliage is stunning. In the winter, a restorative peacefulness settles over the village; and in the spring our gardens announce the arrival of the season with the blossoming of flowers. The Inn is perfect for a special or romantic getaway so be sure to view the romantic packages for getaway ideas. Enjoy the serenity and beauty of Camden Harbor, which is just a short stroll away. Also visit downtown Camden with its interesting shops and variety of restaurants; all within a few blocks!
Your innkeepers, Norm, Linda and Alex, have traveled all over New England and have fallen in love with Camden. They know you will, too. They welcome you into their home and look forward to having you stay.
