A bit of history

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.

Complimentary full breakfast each morning

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.

Staying here

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.
