A Family Concern Windward House B&B Camden Maine
Kristi Bifulco, innkeeper, and Jesse and their kids run this small B&B. The accent is on the comfort of their guests. The location, the fantastic bedsheets, and the casual atmosphere are all deliberate choices to make guests feel at home.
The Bifulco’s began hosting guests at 6 High Street, in Camden ME in 2005. The Windward House has been a Maine lodging since 1985.
In the heart of the Historic Village District of Camden Maine the proprietors of Windward House have cultivated a warm homey feeling for their guests. They offer Camden’s only B&B menu breakfast of fresh fruit, comfort foods and specials made with fresh local and organic ingredients, from old family recipes and gourmet fair trade coffee. Menu now has vegan friendly, vegetarian and gluten free options. Windward House B&B features many modern amenities while maintaining her historic charm. The Innkeepers, originally from Staten Island New York, were raising their children in a suburb of Metropolitan NY when they decided they wanted to commute less, enjoy their children more, and slow down their hectic-paced lives. Our most frequent comments by guests are how comfy the beds are, what a great location, it’s great to have a choice for breakfast, and that the guest is confident they made the right choice.
Windward House B&B Camden Maine: A Simpler Life
When people ask why Jesse would give up a successful law practice and a big house in the suburbs, he says:
We wished to give our children the opportunity to enjoy the kind of childhood only a place like Maine can give. We felt that it was apt that we begin our little American lifestyle experiment in a Greek revival temple-style house, in a small town surrounded by the natural beauty of coastal Maine. From the beginning of our married lives together we have tried to do things in a way that set precedents for our values as married people, that includes family working together, getting to know our neighbors, being a part of a community, and helping when we can. We feel that our lifestyle choice resonates with a nostalgic honor for the very best intentions of our country’s beginning, romance and old fashioned values.
Windward House B&B Camden Maine: Homey Luxury
Don’t be fooled by our laid back style. High thread count Egyptian cotton bed sheets, hand pressed, and meticulously applied. Our breakfast although traditional recipes is made from organic local ingredients, and is a full menu. Unlike every other lodging breakfast in town, we make it to order and you have choices. You may order locavore, with bacon and sausage, or vegetarian or vegan, or gluten free breakfast, without checking ahead of time, without making a fuss, or drawing attention to yourself. You simply order breakfast. You come to breakfast when you want during a very long period of open breakfast service. It’s casual, and I almost forgot – our coffee is amazing. Windward House blend is a shade grown fair trade organic blend that is the perfect way to relax and enjoy a morning in Maine.
We thank all of our guests over the past seven years who have made it possible for us to be here!
