The Hawthorn Inn is a Queen Anne-style Victorian mansion on 1.2 acres of lawn and gardens situated just steps from picturesque Camden village and Camden Harbor, featuring the beautiful sailing waters of Penobscot Bay. Our Camden, Maine inn also provides spectacular views of Mt. Battie. The Hawthorn Inn is the perfect accommodation from which to explore the entire Midcoast region of Maine.
The Hawthorn Inn offers warm, comfortable lodging and romantic vacation accommodations. Experience the perfect getaway! We will do everything in our power to make your stay exactly as you want it to be. Savor a two course breakfast on the terrace and decks in summer and in the sunny dining room or cozy library in winter.
The Carriage House at Our Camden, Maine Inn
This building housed horses and horse-drawn carriages until the early part of the 20th century when it became a barn. The Carriage House now boasts four spacious, romantic rooms, all with king beds and super-size, two-person whirlpool tubs, views of the gardens and seasonal views of the harbor, private decks and TV/DVDs. Three carriage house rooms have gas-log fireplaces. The rooms are peaceful and quiet; not a sound from the outside world enters your private retreat, except the soothing Bailey Brook, which flows past the Hawthorn Inn on its way to Camden Harbor. The rooms face East, the Harbor and Camden’s magnificent sunrise.
The Main House at Our Camden, Maine Inn
Spacious common rooms in the main house include a library, a front parlor and a dining room. The perfect places to gather and meet other guests, or just relax and read. We have quite an extensive library, pick a book to read and if you don’t finish it during your stay, take it with you. From the dining room is a door to two-tiered deck and dining terrace with abundant plants and patio garden. The terrace is a perfect place for weddings and other events.
Up the winding staircase in the main house on the second floor are four rooms with private baths. On the main floor of the Main House is a spacious room with a king size bed and private bath. On the lower level of the main house is a room with a queen size bed and Victorian soaking tub. This room also offers a second sitting room with a daybed.
A short walk to town or harbor, yet removed enough to ensure a restful retreat and peaceful getaway, our premier Camden, Maine inn also is a beautiful venue for weddings, commitment ceremonies, family reunions and corporate retreats.
