“WONDERFUL STAY AFTER A 25 YEAR ABSENCE!”
Reviewed 23 September 2013

We returned to New England after a 25 year gap and stayed in two of our previous Inns of which this was one.

We had a really enjoyable stay and Claudio and Roberta made us feel very welcome and were helpful in providing useful suggestions as to where to travel in the immediate vicinity.

Whilst much had changed in the intervening quarter century and Camden has become very much busier with a heavily used route 1 the Inn retained its old cooker in a tastefully updated kitchen. The whole Inn is decorated with considerable style and flair and our room was very comfortable and welcoming.

Special mention should be made of the breakfasts which were certainly the best that we experienced in New England with beautiful blueberry pancakes and scones and on one occasion a superb egg and aubergine en cocotte dish.

Strongly recommended!

Room Tip: As Route 1 can be busy a room towards the rear of the Inn, which we were privileged to share, may we...

My husband and I had a wonderful two night stay at the Maine Stay Inn. Roberta and Claudio did everything they could to make our stay absolutely perfect. These two people obviously love what they are doing and that comes across in every detail.
The gardens are beautiful and we enjoyed just wandering through the grounds.
Our days started off with coffee in front of our fireplace, and then a delicious breakfast in the sun room. Roberta and Claudio helped us plan our day by giving us maps and hints on how to make the best of our stay. We would make sure to be back in time to have a glass of wine in the garden and then walk into town for dinner.
We stayed in the Mayflower Suite which is beautifully decorated and comfortable. The morning sun through the front room windows made everything feel cheery and warm, The floors in this suite are the original wide pine boards which complement the antique furnishings. The bath room has wonderful counter space for personal items, nice toiletries, and the terrycloth robes were great.
You will feel so much at home at the Maine Stay Inn that going down to the kitchen for coffee, tea, cookies, or chocolate just feels natural.
We are already planning our next trip to stay with Roberta and Claudio.

We just returned home from a 4 day trip through Maine, which included two nights at the Maine Stay Inn. We stayed in The Common Ground suite at the back of the Inn, which had a great view of the gardens, was very spacious, and my wife gave me lots of praise for selecting the Common Ground Suite. The owners Claudio and Roberta come from Italy and are extremely friendly and accomodating. The Inn is decorated with many pictures, furniture and other works of art from their Italy home. The morning breakfasts were delicious and varied. We enjoyed the porch view one morning, and the dining room another.

I have to thank Claudio for allowing me to transfer my June reservation which I had to cancel due to a family member's illness. It was booked via an online special and was non changeable. He allowed me to transfer the reservation, and pay the difference in rates. This was extremely flexible on his part, and on my end I definitely will return for a future visit.

After staying at a wonderful B&B in Portland ME we were thinking it couldn't get much better...until Roberta, Claudio and the Camden Maine Stay Inn. Such attention to detail! So much love and care has obviously been lavished on this B&B--every room in the house was a visual delight and the gardens were all that could be desired for a little rest and relaxation away from the main hubbub. Our room was the Dogwood and by gum, they did everything but plant a dogwood tree in there! It overlooked the back gardens but was still located on the main floor, which was nice. Our bed was comfortable, the room had plenty of sitting/writing areas and everything was spotless. Even though the shower was a touch small, they had a very large area for toiletries and towels in the bathroom which worked out great for two people. Tea/coffee and three different kinds of cookies were offered (and went fast!) in the afternoon and chocolate could be found in dishes everywhere. Roberta was kind enough to share the recipe for her fabulous almond cookies with me. Then there was breakfast....I don't believe a gourmet chef could have done any better. Each bite was delicious. Hint: if you want to have breakfast in the Sun Room you had better arrive a little bit early--those seats go quickly. Otherwise, sitting at the Harvest Table (all the way from Italy) in the dining room offered a beautiful surrounding as well. In sum, we would highly recommend staying here. The only slightly negative point was that it was located right on Hwy 1 which is a very busy street at times. However, our room at the back prevented us from having any trouble with noise. Thank you Roberta and Claudio for a memorable stay!

Room Tip: The Dogwood room was perfect. Windows on 2 walls overlooking the beautiful grounds, lots of space to...

My husband and I had been in Boston and had a horrific experience with our lodging...so we left early and headed up into Maine. We stopped in Camden and found this wonderful B&B off Route One. The couple whom own and run it are from Italy and it was taking us a tad back in time to our delightful trips to Italy with our children. The Maine Stay B and B was the cleanest, well appointed B&B B we have ever stayed in and the bed was to die for. We actually wanted to take the bed home to CA with us:)
The breakfast was delicious and healthy and the B & B was very quiet for a great night's sleep. No complaints at all. Claudio and Roberta helped us find a scenic bike route through Camden and Rockport and we explored the top of Mt. Battie with it's picturesque views...again, to die for!
Thank you Roberta and Claudio.

My husband and I enjoyed several days at the Maine Stay Inn in August while visiting friends nearby.t What a delightful place, and Claudio and Roberta are amazing hosts!They are extremely friendly and hospitable and really want their guests to enjoy their time at the inn and in Camden. We had some delightful conversations with Claudio as we have a passion for his native Italy, and we can truly see how he has transported his Italian cordiality to his welcoming of guests into his home in Maine. The breakfasts are delicious, as are the cookies in the late afternoon. We highly recommend the Maine Stay Inn and the beautiful coastal area of Camden.

We stayed at the Maine Stay Inn at the end of our two week trip around Maine and after using impersonal hotels for the rest of our stay this was such a breath of fresh air. Roberta and Claudio were so welcoming and knowledgeable, their Inn is gorgeous and beautifully furnished, our room - The Dogwood was so pretty with the most comfortable bed and finally the breakfasts - what can we say! Delicious home cooked and again the best we had during our two week trip. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Maine Stay or Maine itself to anyone. We are already planning our next trip and will definitely stay here again.
