Janice and Peter are phenomenal hosts. Their inn is exceptionally welcoming, well-kept, and clean. The rooms are well-maintained. Their historic home is a gem. It is perfectly situated from downtown Camden, and we cannot recommend staying here enough. Booking the Carriage House room is well worth the value, and it is perfect for a romantic, quiet getaway.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Camden Maine Stay Inn. The Inn itself is beautiful and immaculate and we enjoyed a delicious breakfast. It is in easy walk into town. But most importantly, Peter and Janis are delightful hosts! You will feel like you're staying with good friends. Highly recommend!
