Where is Camden Maine?
Windward House B&B in Camden Maine is a Camden Maine hotel and lodging in Camden village a small seaside town in MidCoast Maine. The coast of Maine is divided into three unofficial regions, Downeast and Acadia, Midcoast, and South Coast. Camden is midway between Portland Maine and Acadia. Nearby towns are Rockport, Rockland, Lincolnville, Hope, Belfast, and Appleton. Nearby islands are Vinalhaven, and Islesboro. While Windward House may be considered a Maine hotel in a general sense a bed and breakfast is different from other kinds of Maine lodgings and hotels in several important ways.
How is a Maine hotel different from a B&B?
The word “hotel” is defined on Google as “an establishment providing accommodations, meals and other services for travelers and tourists.”
While this very general definition applies to the Windward House B&B, as a Maine hotel, it can be a bit misleading to an individual who has never stayed at a B&B but only at a more traditional hotel.
Camden Maine Inn Rooms & Suites at a Bed and Breakfast
The letters “B&B” stand for the words “bed” and “breakfast”. A bed and breakfast is a kind of hotel, but is traditionally in a person’s actual home rather than a structure specifically built and designed to accommodate travelers and tourists. So, our Camden Maine inn rooms & suites feel more like staying in someone’s house than in a hotel. While that tradition continues many contemporary Maine hotels and indeed lodgingswishing to capitalize on the popularity of B&B’s have built or renovated structures that were never meant to be homes, but rather always meant to be hotels. This has created a shift in expectations among some travelers. While many who first fell in love with B&B’s still look for an innkeeper who lives in a home that hosts guests and serves breakfast in the morning, some have only ever experienced what might be termed a “boutique hotel” experience that calls itself “B&B”.
At the risk of being overly formalistic it could be argued that these are not really B&B’s at all but actually hotels attempting to gain some semblance of the aura of personal hospitality that has traditionally been associated with a bed and breakfast.
While it can certainly be argued that a boutique hotel is not a bed and breakfast in the traditional sense, in a general sense of the word, a B&B is in fact a hotel.
Windward House is one Maine hotel that prides itself on being a traditional B&B. It is the home of a family, parents and three kids, who live there and host their guests. Kristen and Jesse greet the guests, give them area information, help with reservations and getting them settled in, and cook and serve their guests breakfast in the morning. The Windward House is also in a real sense a “green” hotel. It is so because it has applied for and been certified as a Maine Green Leader in Hospitality. This certification awarded by the State of Maine is based upon actual renewable sustainable and green practices. The Windward House was one of the local lodgings actually audited for compliance with the Green Leader in Hospitality program and has passed with flying colors.
