The Maine Stay Inn, the History and Tradition of Maine
Relaxed, cozy, romantic, and very friendly, the Maine Stay Inn is a grand old home situated on a 1 acre garden with tree-lined winding paths, a brook with a granite bridge, benches, and a swing. It is the second oldest of the sixty-six lovely homes that are listed on the National Register of Historical Places in the High Street Historic District and it offers the charm of yesterday with the comfort and amenities of today.
A delightful trip back in time. Come savor the past
In 1802, when Thomas Jefferson was President of the United States, Route 1 was a dirt road and Maine was still a part of the state of Massachusetts, Alden Bass built a house at 22 High Street here in Camden. A striking main house with an attached carriage house and a four-story barn, the home is an outstanding example of the progressive farm buildings common to 19th century Maine.
One of America's most beautiful seaside villages
Camden has something for every taste. Golf, shopping, boating, hiking, kayaking in summer, skiing, snowshoeing, ice skating, ice fishing or snowmobiling in winter…all over a short drive away. Guests at the Maine Stay Inn can walk two-block down tree lined streets to the harbor park, shops and restaurants.
We are just four blocks to over thirty miles of wonderful Camden Hills State Park trails. While here you can play golf on one of the country's premier courses, sail in a windjammer, eat lobster within yards of where they are being caught or sit on the rock at the top of Mt. Battie where poet Edna St. Vincent Millay sat to gaze at the islands in the bay and gain inspiration.
We look forward to welcoming you to the Maine Stay Inn.
