“Charming and picturesque”
Reviewed 16 August 2014

This lovely village has arts and crafts galleries, a few touristy shops, coffee and ice cream cafes, and several fine restaurants. Don't miss the mill river and its quaint bridge. Camden Harbor and its park are perfect places for admiring views of America that seem long-lost.

“Enjoy!”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

There are so many beautiful details to see on High Street, be sure that you walk so you can pause to enjoy the gorgeous flower beds, the details of the historic homes, go early to hear the birds!

“Delightfully quaint town”

Lovely shops & great restaurants in a quaint historical town. Easy walking & very interesting. We chose to stay right in town so that we could easily stroll everywhere. Good choice -- we highly recommend it for the scenery & convenience!

“Nice town for a little walk!”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

This is a really cute little town with an amazing view of the harbor from the park. The park/amphitheater were the highlights for me!
The town is definitely worth a walk through. Shops are cute but very pricey - which seems to be the way in these little towns.
