Reviewed 24 November 2008

When you find a place like Blackberry Inn, you never want to leave! Jim's work in the kitchen is second to none. The multi-course breakfasts are amazingly delicious and beautifully presented. Each room has it's own personality and is beautifully appointed. The environment is so soothing and delightful that leaving is not easy! Thank you for keeping this little slice of heaven alive, we will be long time and frequest guests!

  • Liked — The appointment to detail to our comfort
  • Disliked — Parking is a little tight.

The Birch Retreat at the inn lives up to its name. A beautiful suite with a great 2 person whirlpool tub. The service is second to none and the meals will leave you full but still wanting more.

My wife and I have stayed here twice and we now refer to it as "our place". We will return often for our romantic getaways!

We love staying at the Blackberry Inn. It is truly a home away from home! We have stayed in many Bed and Breakfast Inns and what makes this special is the graciousness and friendliness of the innkeepers. They make you feel as though you are very important and upon return visits greet you as "old" friends. The knack to do this in the midst of responsibilities is quite unique. And, if you watch for a few minutes, you realize that every guest is being treated in this way.
We have stayed in several rooms, each one unique, each one comfortable. And the common rooms are warm and welcoming.
Again, the innkeepers go beyond expectations in trying to accommodate their guests.
Breakfasts are wonderful - healthful and filling, but not overwhelming.
As far as I am concerned - this is it, when staying in Camden!

Just returned from a trip to Maine and spent two nights at the Blackberry Inn in Camden. What a lovely place ! I was nervous having never used any B&Bs in the United States prior to this trip. I will never use a boring old motel again !

We stayed in Room 7 (The Library) and it was really very well done. The room is not huge but there is ample space for everything and the bed is very comfortable. The bathroom and shower room are separate, one on each side of the room, but this is not a problem. All in all the room was exactly as described on the website and I can thoroughly recommend it. There is not a lot of noise in the room as it sits just off a small parlour room on its own. The only noise I heard was from a staircase that runs above the room which creaks a little. But not bad for a house built in the mid-1800s.

Breakfast was very tasty and every effort is made to please those who have allergies/preferences etc. There is also ample self-service tea/coffee available all day beside the breakfast room.

Cindi (or was it Sindi ??) was our host and she gave us a great welcome with lots of info about the town and surrounding area. The house has a very informal feel and runs an honesty bar for guests. We were not there long enough to get to know any other guests but everyone seemed very friendly.

Location-wise the house is only about 5-10 mins walk from the centre of Camden along the sidewalk and it was a nice distance to walk off the evening's 'excess' in the many restaurants in town. Camden itself is glorious and we wished we had booked to stay longer. Next time maybe ??

To summarise I can only say good things about the Blackberry Inn from the accomodation, tasty breakfast, loacation and even the parking was easy. Give it a try !

Everything about this inn is magic--the welcoming innkeepers, the absolutely first-rate breakfasts, the afternoon refreshments, the beautifully decorated room, and the attention to guest requests. We booked the Camden Fall Adventure package and Cyndi, Jim, Ruthie, Tracy and Bill made all the arrangements to fit our schedule and desires. One day we hiked and sat atop the mountain looking out beyond the harbor to the ocean; the picnic lunch (made by Jim) was as spectacular as the view. The sunset sail on the windjammer Surprise was a delight. As was the Farnsworth Museum. The bed in our room (Salon) was made even more comfortable by the luxurious linens. We have stayed in many B&Bs and small inns and hotels in various parts of the world and in the U.S., and this is truly one of the best.
