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.

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. Also visit downtown Camden with its interesting shops and variety of restaurants; all within a few blocks!

Getting Here
Directions from the South: Drive north on Interstate 95. In Maine, I-95 becomes the Maine Turnpike. Just beyond Portland, take Exit 52. Continue north on I-295 to Brunswick and take Exit 28 onto Coastal Route 1. From there, follow Route 1 north for about an hour, passing through several towns until you arrive in Camden.
Alternate Route: Six miles north of Waldoboro, turn off Route 1 onto Route 90. Follow Route 90 until it intersects Route 1 again, at Rockport. Turn left onto Route 1 and continue north to Camden. 

In Camden: We are 1.7 miles north of the Rockport Route 90 Route 1 intersection. You will see our white-clapboard inn and our sign with a copper schooner on it on the right side of the road, at 72 Elm Street (Camden, Maine 04843). 

Directions from the North & Bangor Airport: Depending upon which access road you take out of the airport, you will need to take either route 222 East or route 2 East. Both roads will intersect, at different points, with route 9 and route 1A. Go South towards Hampden. At Hampden, route 9 will split with route 1A. Continue on 1A to Winterport, Frankfort, and Stockton Springs. At Stockton Springs, route 1A becomes route 1 and route 3. Continue on route 1 and route 3 through Searsport into Belfast. Route 3 will branch west, but you will stay on route 1 going south. Continue through Northport, Lincolnville and Camden. 

In Camden: We are on the south side of the center of town. In Camden, you will have gone through a blinking light (route 52 & route 1, where High St. becomes Main St., by the library), at the North end of town, and at the other end of town a blinking light (corner of route 1, which is Elm St. at this point, and Union St.). There is a white church on your right and a Stop 'n' Go gas station on your left. We are the sixth house on your left, from this corner. We are the next house after Taber Forge. Our sign has a copper schooner in it and the house is a WHITE FEDERAL with 12 over 12 windows. We have plenty of off street parking. Pull in and turn around and then angle park on the side.
