The property is extremely clean and well maintained. Our room was beautifully decorated and had more amenities than we expected. The new owners went over and beyond expectations, from communicating our arrival a few days prior, accommodating our late arrival, offering advise and let me tell you, the breakfast they served, which they both have a hand in preparing, was nothing less than extraordinary. Needless to say, we were blown away and the next stop we had on our stay was well below the standard that we had here. We will definitely be staying here when we come back to Maine!! Fantastic!! We’d give TEN STARS if that was a thing!

We stayed at the inn for our honeymoon and had the very best time. Shelly and Jeff, the new owners, are the nicest people I have ever met. My husband and I loved seeing them every day, and Shelly and Jeff always made time to talk to us and make sure we had dinner reservations and tell us what was going on in town that we might like. The inn itself is so cool. It’s 210 years old (!) but so well maintained (and just recently refurbished). The three-course breakfast was OUTSTANDING, and we had the option of dining inside or out on the gorgeous patio surrounded by flowers. It’s right downtown, and the restaurants and shops are an easy walk down Elm Street. The town reminds me of the Gilmore Girls’ hometown, Stars Hollow, Connecticut. It is picture-perfect. We stayed at the inn for a week, and Shelly and Jeff feel like lifelong friends. We can’t wait to come back, and we have such special memories associated with the inn that we will treasure forever.

Best B& B in Camden Maine- A must stay!!
By far this was one of the best B&B experiences we have had and was the very best as we traveled Maine and stayed at several others. The Inn is lovely from the decor inside and outside (lovely deck, yard and fire pit area) to the location which is walking distance from the downtown shops etc… all is perfect! The attention to detail to accommodate the customers is bar none! Every little detail from ample charge cords, white noise machine, cozy fireplace, jetted shower… all the added extras that make this feel like home! The breakfast was excellent! The owners ( Shelley & Jeff) were so hospitable and took the time to visit with us and ensure all our needs were met- we felt so comfortable and very at home — I can honestly say we made new friends in Maine. I highly recommend this B&B -you will not be disappointed! We will be back the next visit to Camden! Thank you for making our Camden Maine experience the very best! Donald & Dara ( Chris) Clark
Our sitting area in the bedroom next to the fireplace! Great kick back and relax area!
Front of the Inn- a charming Maine B& B
One of several rooms to lounge in- again so cozy & comfortable!

Quaint Luxury
We booked Captain Swift Inn looking for charm as part of our first trip to Maine. It delivered in droves. This is a quality property with luxurious touches only found in the finest hotels. It was quiet, wonderful, and the history gives it an extra touch. The new owners; Jeff and Shelly, were gracious and very helpful. Loved every minute.
