About the Inn

The Camden Maine Stay Inn is a historic bed and breakfast inn in Camden, Maine. We are widely and appreciably known for our elegant, romantic setting and relaxed, friendly atmosphere. We are open year-round for the enjoyment of our guests.

The Inn is located in the Historic District of Camden, often referred to as the Jewel of the Maine Coast and one of the most beautiful seaside villages in America. The Inn, built in 1802, is the second oldest home in Camden and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It has been meticulously maintained and captures the essence of Maine, its history and its traditions.

Each beautiful, romantic guest room in the Inn has its own distinctive character. Many rooms have original wide-plank wood floors and gas-log fireplaces and stoves. In addition, our guests are welcome and encouraged to socialize in our living room and sun porch, play or listen to our antique Steinway grand piano in the piano room, and relax in front of the fireplace and watch their favorite show on the TV in our den.

We serve our guests a full gourmet breakfast each morning. We place a significant emphasis on using locally and regionally sourced fruit, eggs, meat, herbs and other fresh foods as part of our breakfast. Indeed, we maintain our own herb garden at the Inn which provides the freshest of basil, oregano, thyme, chives and other flavor enhancers during the growing season. In addition, we have delicious homemade cookies as well as coffee and tea available for our guests in the kitchen every afternoon and evening. Our Maine Stay Mocha Truffle cookies are a perennial favorite of our guests.

One of the defining elements of the Inn is our beautiful, spacious garden, which is more like a miniature park due to its size and variety. We have well over an acre of lawn and gardens in which our guests can relax. There are walking paths, comfortable sitting areas, and even a year-round stream flowing from nearby Mt. Battie to the harbor. Our guests often enjoy the peace, serenity and beauty of our garden with a cup of coffee or tea before or after breakfast or with a glass of wine during the late afternoon and evening prior to dinner.

The Inn is blessed with an incredibly favorable location in the Historic District of Camden. It is set among several lovely, quintessentially New England residences which date back to the earliest years of Camden’s existence. From the Inn it is only a short distance — a stroll of roughly four minutes — to Camden’s gorgeous harbor and quaint downtown. From there one can easily walk to Camden’s many fine shops and excellent restaurants.

Whether you want to see the many sights of Maine’s Midcoast or just kick back and relax, the Camden Maine Stay Inn is the ideal place for you to stay. We encourage you to make our home your home-away-from-home.
