A little love story left in one of our room guest books (written by young lovers at Windward House Bed and Breakfast)(2007)
“Oh Sofia, This room was a great idea. I thought we were going to have to sleep on your sister’s floor. With the dog to boot. I mean I like the dog but this is so much better than sleeping with the dog. And the bath…. OMG how nice was that? Maybe a 25% larger tub would make it more fun for two of us. I have to say you do look good in the tub….”
“Oh Rick, When Mamma said she would treat us to a room,(my mamma, not yours or ours, that would be weird!) I had no idea there would be a canopy. I luuuvvvv canopies. I even love to say the word can oh pea! It just feels good on the tip of my tongue. Mmmm! Thank you for un-tucking the bed linen for me. I like to feel free even my feet like to feel free and they are warm and toasty and happy!!”
I sent this story to T&L’s short tweetable love stories, but since it was too long for a tweet, it was not acknowledged. I still love it, tweetable or not.

Love Maine in Camden Package
Things to Do
Camden Maine is a fabulously romantic getaway in the quiet season. Rates are reasonable this time of year, leaving you with enough to spend on a great dinner at one of the local restaurants within walking distance of this romantic historic bed and breakfast, or an in room couple’s massage, or just a quiet night watching a dvd by the fireplace. The cool fresh air of Midcoast Maine promotes cuddling, and our fabulous comfort bedding personally assembled with meticulous care makes sleep a luxury item.
Camden Maine is a small town, so reservations are a good idea. Also, massages and inn room extras should be ordered well in advance to make sure things are just the way you like them.
Another Great Idea
How about a cooking class? Either as a couple or one of you could learn a new cooking technique to try out at home and bring back memories of your romantic weekend getaway. Camden Maine has become a fantastic culinary “foodie” spot for learning and enjoying great food wine and craft beer.
- Call Ahead
With any special arrangements like flowers or chocolate covered strawberries or champagne in the room, or something more creative, you should call ahead. We welcome your requests and can and have made many arrangements.
- Some Ideas
Many of these items may be ordered when reserving your room. Of course it’s always a good idea to let us know if there’s something special you would like to do…
- Chocolate Covered Strawberries – hand dipped and freshly selected a classic!
- Champagne – Want to try something new? How about Italian Prosecco, California Champagne Method Sparkling, Spanish Cava, or be traditional with French bubbly the original Champagne
- In Room Massage – order well ahead, a couples’ massage is a great way to relax and connect with your partner
- Beer? Yes, craft Maine beers are also a great way to celebrate your weekend getaway
- The Language of Flowers – a wonderful symbol of life and renewal of spirits of nature and of love, a fresh bouquet of flowers is never out of style, include roses, but how about a few of her favorites also, perhaps a small book explaining the symbolic meaning of flowers and send your partner a coded floral message which he or she can have fun decoding with this book
When Jesse and I bought the Camden Windward House Bed and Breakfast, we made a pledge to only serve food that we would eat. We reworked the menu that was already in service at the Bed and Breakfast and added vegan, vegetarian, gluten – free options and use organic and local ingredients. When you are traveling it is difficult to eat healthy and we understand that. Many of our guests ask for our recipes and we are delighted to share our knowledge on healthy eating. We are delighted to be able to offer local cooking classes to our guests as an addition to their stay. Learn how to create a sustainable lifestyle with the monthly workshop classes at Salt Water Farm. These Maine Cooking Classes are a great addition to your travels in Maine. The Cooking School, Salt Water Farm is only 4.7 miles from the Bed and Breakfast and we believe it is a complimentary addition to staying at Windward House. In the morning you will be treated to a delicious made to order breakfast with many dietary options. Eating a healthy breakfast is a great start to your day. Learn how to can fruit and vegetables. Wonderful warm your bones meals such as Maine cooking classes about stews, soups and braising are also taught. Fun classes such as cocktails and pies are also included. There is something for everyone. The final class, at the end of October, is Cooking With Fire, and I could not think of a better way leave the season of fall and welcome a Maine winter. Check Full Calendar of Cooking School Classes click here.
Camden Windward House has developed a package to encourage you to start living a more healthy and sustainable lifestyle with opportunities at a great cooking school. Please see details of package here.
