Ensconced on a pretty stretch of waterfront in New England, Camden Harbor Inn makes for a charming hideaway in Maine with a fine dining restaurant and 19th century heritage to boot.
Camden Harbor Inn is an elegant Relais & Chateaux property set in a desirable Camden location, a delightful waterfront town in the US state of Maine.
This heritage hotel dates back to the late 1800s when it served as a summer hideout for well-heeled visitors to New England, and while today it continues this tradition, it’s now also open year-round for all seasons.
The distinctive white exterior with wraparound veranda is perched atop a hill for privileged views of the bay and harbour, emanating an old-world charm that screams sophistication. Within, you are greeted by smiling staff and a complimentary glass of bubbly to start off your stay in style; you can expect the same treat each morning, in fact, as an a la carte champagne breakfast is served in the highly esteemed restaurant, Natalie’s. This eatery is known for its Haute European and New England fare, including famous Maine lobsters and handmade pastries too.
Start your evening with a cocktail up at the bar before settling down for a delectable three-course meal, paired perhaps with a bottle of local New England wine.
The Juliana Lounge at Camden Harbor Inn is another lovely space where you can help yourself to complimentary tea, coffee and light bites throughout the day while looking through the stacks of magazines, books and board games.
Be sure to revel in the sanctuary that is your guest room too, each being named and designed after an exotic destination around the world, and of course sitting out on the veranda with a drink as you watch the comings and goings of Camden Harbour is absolutely obligatory.

The widely acclaimed French eatery, Natalie’s, is perhaps one of the greatest assets of the Camden Harbor Inn. With AAA Four Diamond status and a dedicated, passionate team of chefs, this fine-dining restaurant produces some seriously lip-smacking cuisine that celebrates the bounty and culinary prowess of New England. Ingredients are sourced locally in Maine and whipped up into three-course menus, including the seasonal Grand Lobster Menu which can be paired with one of the 200 wine labels from the bar. The morning brings as much delight as dinner, what with the complimentary Champagne breakfast plus handcrafted pastries to start your day – delicious.
Activities and Entertainment
The main activities at Camden Harbor Inn itself usually involve enjoying a treatment in the spa or a fine dining meal at Natalie’s, though there’s more than enough on your doorstep once you set foot out of the hotel. Try biking, hiking, fishing, canoeing, sailing or even lobster safaris, and be sure to book in a vineyard visit if you’d like a spot of wine-tasting in Maine.
Camden Harbor Inn is home to a small spa where you can indulge in a massage treatment or try Zero Balancing, among other therapies. There’s also a terrace for moments spent outdoors, admiring the bay with a cup of tea or coffee in-hand; you can help yourself to these all day long from the Juliana Lounge, where snacks and pastries are also available. Browse the collection of magazines, DVDs, books and board games to entertain yourself while here, as you look out for boats bobbing in the harbour.
