Camden Maine B&B With Many Amenities
Complimentary Breakfast | Super Fast Free WiFi | Off-street Parking | Afternoon Snacks From Great Local Bakeries
We’ve checked in many guests over the years. You may be surprised to learn the most common first question asked. Where do I park? I remember on our honeymoon, we stayed in a small fortified town in the south of France. It had a small fort on a promontory overlooking the harbor. The maritime alps towered over the town, and the village was arranged in terraced levels that rose up from the waterfront. The little narrow lanes netted their way through an ancient wall, stone houses, hotels and eventually a railroad tunnel. Where do we park? I thought as we wended our way through streams of traffic that did not cohere to any particular pattern. Although I spoke a little French, of course, it was difficult to communicate with any fluency. We parked, checked in to Hotel Welcome, and relaxed. It turned out that parking was illegal all around our hotel. It was just too small narrow and busy to accommodate cars. We enjoyed the place in ignorant bliss for two days until a man straight out of a ’50s movie ran up to us speaking very quickly in French. He was older, maybe in his ’50s, with a grey shadow of a beard, a beret and a striped shirt (no kidding). He had a moped and he was urging me to get on it and take a ride somewhere. I finally pieced together that someone had scratched our car, and he wanted to bring me to the perpetrator.
I got on the back of the moped leaving behind my young new wife buzzing down the wharf to god knows where. The man gunned the moped quickly to a breakneck speed. I began to wonder if I had made a good decision. I asked him to stop, but he didn’t seem to hear me. I began to worry. Suddenly a group of tourists flocked into the street slowing almost to a stop. He beeped at them and tried to gun the thing, but before he could rocket off again, I got off. It was at that moment that I thought if I don’t get off this thing I may never see my wife again!
I jumped off the moped. The man shouted at me to get back on – that we must pursue the evil person who dented my rental car. I declined and walked four blocks back to where my wife stood waiting.
Well – if you’re interested in a B&B in Camden Maine which has convenient off street parking, Windward House is it. We are really close to downtown and you will never be whisked away by a stranger on a moped!
But now I realize why one of the first questions guests ask when they are welcomed here at Windward House is “where do I park?”
The answer is, relax, get settled, and park in our lot!
