An Inviting Escape
“A place of cool morning mists, picturesque lighthouses, stalwart granite headlands and a deep sapphire blue harbor…”
Camden is often referred to as Maine’s “prettiest” seacoast village. Situated where the mountains meet the seas at the heart of beautiful Penobscot bay, Camden is centrally located midway between Portland and Bar Harbor and is convenient to all mid-coast destinations making it an ideal base for day-trips during your Maine vacation.
The Camden Windward House is located in the heart of Camden’s historic district, only a block from Camden’s scenic harbor and many of its surrounding shops and restaurants. The Inn is also just a short distance from the Camden Hills State Park with Mt. Battie’s popular hiking trails. In fact, you can walk from the back of the Inn to one of Mt. Battie’s most convenient trails leading to the top with its breathtaking panoramic views of sparkling Penobscot Bay, evergreen islands, picturesque harbor villages and even more mountains on the horizon. After your hike, have lunch at a quaint waterside restaurant, stop for ice cream and stroll through the many unique shops, for that “just right” gift or maybe that long desired “personal treasure.” Or, perhaps your idea of relaxation is just driving around the scenic back roads where each bend may yield a more spectacular view than the one before. At day’s end, guests will find returning to The Camden Windward House the perfect way to relax, unwind and prepare to plan your next day’s activities.
Whether you come to escape the pressures of your daily lives or to just appreciate the grandeur of the beautiful Maine coastline and the quaint village of Camden, you will be welcomed by the genuine hospitality the innkeepers have created.
