Breakfast: a wonderfully bountiful event served at 8:00, 8:30, 9:00 & 9:30 seatings. You choose from a menu hung on your door each evening. Your choices include fresh seasonal fruit, a selection of muffins such as Strawberry/almond or perhaps Orange/pecan, pastries of the day, an appetizer, and the entree of the day. This could be Smoked Salmon or other gourmet omelets, Lemon-Ricotta Souffle Pancakes, or maybe heart shaped Banana-Pecan Cornmeal Waffles with Maple Country Sausage. A selection of fine teas and coffees and fresh juices are available. There is a Continental-plus option for those with lighter appetites.
Reservations: As we try very hard to suit our guests needs to the rooms we have available, we prefer the personal touch of speaking to you on the phone. Feel free to call us at 1-800-217-0109 for inquiries or to make a reservation. You may e-mail us if you wish but we will still want to make phone contact to finalize the reservation.
Check In: In order to prepare our rooms for your arrival, our check in time is from 3:00 to7:00 p.m.. Later arrivals must make arrangements in advance if absolutely necessary.
Check out: 11:00 a.m.
Cancellations: Due to our small size, last minute cancellations impact us greatly. We kindly ask for 14 days notice prior to planned day of arrival. This lead time will allow us to rebook the room to travelers who must coordinate airline flights etc. in order to take your place. Regretfully... with less than 14 days notice we will make every effort to fill your room, but you are responsible for the cost of your entire stay if we are unable to rebook it.
Minimum Stays: In High Season and all Holiday Weekends we request a 2 night minimum stay. The Camden area has so much to offer travellers.... great restaurants, sailing, hiking, premier golf, film and art festivals, antique shopping, lobster and blueberry festivals, wonderful museums, lighthouses and islands to explore, upscale shops and galleries.... and did we mention the VIEWS? We find that our guests are often disappointed that they could not fit everything in! Camden is a great home base for all of this.... it beats packing and unpacking constantly.
Your Innkeepers: Former Bostonians, Bill Fontana, a sculptor, and JoAnne Ball, a decorative designer, fell in love with Camden while driving through in 1989.
"We have to live here!" they both thought. A Little Dream is the happy result.
"Serendipity brought us here. We drove by this Victorian cottage with its pretty carriage house, bought it that day, and then thought...'Now what?' How about a B&B? A little dream!
"We lived in New York before we moved here. Now we meet guests from all over the world. People with interesting experiences and viewpoints on life. Honeymooners, actors, musicians, film producers, lots of sailors. Its wonderful!"
Foreign Languages spoken: Thanks to living in Switzerland as a child, JoAnne speaks Italian plus some French and German.
No Smoking Please ... Regretfully ...including the premises, porches and decks. No pets, not appropriate for small children (too many high decks!).
Getting Here: it's easy:
From the South:
take Highway Route 95 North to Route 295 North just before South Portland Maine. Take Route 295 North to Exit 28 Bath/Brunswick to Coastal Route 1. Stay on Route 1 until you pass through Camden Village heading North. As Route 1 proceeds North just past our Camden Maine Library it becomes High St. We are at the high end of High St. about 1/2 mile from the village, on the left, just 2 doors North of the old White Hall Inn. Our driveway swings around to our Carriage House where there is off street parking.
Check-in is at the Main House between 3-7 pm.
NOTE: If you are in a hurry to get here, try taking Route 90, a left off of route 1 just on the Northern outskirts of the viliage of Warren. It will save you more than 30 minutes in drive time by by-passing Thomaston and Rockland. Stay on Route 90 (crossing Route 17) until it tees with Route 1 in Camden/Rockport. Make a left on Route 1 and proceed North as per directions above.
From the North:
Take Route 1 South entering Camden. We are the second Inn on the right before you come into the village, accross from Norumbega Inn, a small Victorian castle.
From the West: It gets trickier. Best to call us.
From the East: You had better be on a boat!
Logan International Airport (BOS) (just under 4 hours South)
