|Often referred to as Maine's "prettiest" seacoast village, Camden is situated at the heart of beautiful Penobscot Bay and offers a variety of unique shops, galleries, and wonderful restaurants. In a setting where the mountains meet the sea, this year-round destination is ideal for skiing, hiking, sailing, kayaking, day trips to Acadia National park or simply peaceful relaxation.
Built in 1854 and only steps from the harbor and town, the beautiful and historic Camden Windward House is an all-season inn which combines the mystique of Maine's nautical heritage with contemporary amenities, assuring the utmost enjoyment for its guests. All rooms, each with their unique charm, feature non-allergenic feather beds, private baths, cozy sitting areas, a/c, phones, data ports, and televisions with VCRs and cable. Many rooms also afford the romantic charm of fireplaces, private decks, and jacuzzis or deep claw-footed soaking tubs.
Each morning brings the inn's delicious full-menu breakfast featuring seasonal fresh fruit, traditional Downeast entrees and scrumptious daily specials. All dishes are made to order from fresh local ingredients. Our location, fine accommodations and cuisine guarantee an unforgettable coastal Maine vacation at the Camden Windward House any time of the year.
