“The wonderful Blackberry Inn!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 January 2006

We had the most wonderful weekend at the Blackberry Inn in Camden. I don't think I have stayed anywhere more comfortable and homely. We felt thoroughly spoilt by our hosts. Each morning we had the most wonderful 2-course breakfast that tasted delightful and was presented beatifully. When we returned from our days activity warm apple cider and a log fire awaited. Our hosts' local knowledge contributed to our enjoyment of the local area and eateries - they advised us where to go and what to do; everything was perfect! The Inn is conveniently located and we enjoyed the short stroll to the town centre. We fully intend to return in 2006 and have fallen in love with Camden and the surounding area. I would highly recomend the Blackberry Inn to anyone heading for the Camden area.

My wife and I stayed at the Blackberry Inn this last weekend for Christmas by the Sea (a weekend long holiday event), and we absolutely loved it. Jim and Cindi were gracious and made us feel right at home from the second we walked through the door.

We stayed in the Treetops room and it was great. The room itself was big, with a vaulted ceiling and impeccably decorated. The bed was big and very comfortable. The gas fireplace gave a warm, romantic glow to the room (not to mention making it nice and toasty warm). My wife loved the claw-foot tub. She relaxed with a good book, a glass of wine and used the bath salts and scented candle provided by the Inn.

While she soaked, I caught a few downs of the game on the flat-screen TV. And wait to you try on the bathrobes they provide. The whole thing was pure luxury. I just wish it was warm enough to enjoy our private deck that overlooked the gardens.

And what about the food? Breakfast was outstanding. Perfectly cooked and perfectly presented. The French toast with a fresh blackberry/sage topping was my favorite. And it was so filling; I wasn't hungry until late in the afternoon. Of course, the cookies, coffee, tea and candy that were always available took care of any "snack" urges that came about.

The Inn is also only about a 5 minute walk to the center of town, which proved to be very convenient. We enjoyed wine tastings and great food from establishments recommended by Cindi.

I can't say enough good things about the Blackberry Inn. We will be making it part of our holiday tradition for years to come.

I just stayed at the Blackberry Inn with my sisters and we had a wonderful time. The breakfasts were fabulous. Everything was cooked to perfection and just the right size. Our room was decorated with antiques which was lovely but the bed rattled a little and the walls were thin. The Innkeepers were lovely to deal with and very helpful.

My family and I stayed at the Blackberry Inn in September of 2005 and once again we experienced the hospitality from the innkeepers, Jim and Cyndi. We stayed at the Garden rooms for three nights and enjoyed each night in the clean and beautifully decorated rooms. The bathrooms in these rooms are spacious with their jacuzzi tubs and separate showers. Each morning we were served a delightful delicious breakfast. My favorite breakfasts were the waffles and the french toast with sausage. The Inn is at a great location and is not far from downtown Camden. The stay was once again truly delightful and this is indeed an excellent Inn.

My family and I stayed at the Blackberry Inn during the Windjammer Weekend on September 2nd through 5th. We had a wonderful time. Jim and Cyndi Ostowski, the owners and innkeepers were helpful from start to finish. On our way to Camden from the airport we got a little turned around. We called Jim to let him know that we might be a little late coming in, he was very understanding and gave us directions to get us heading in the right direction. We stayed in the hidden garden and garden gate rooms, which are located in the carriage house. The rooms were charming with their private entrances and secret garden locale. The rooms were very comfortable with king size beds, soft comforters, fireplaces and best of all, the jacuzzi tub. After a long day of hiking and exploring the jacuzzi tub was something to look forward to. The other half of a Bed and Breakfast is of course the breakfast, you will not be dissapointed in that area at the Blackberry Inn. They offered us yogurt with homemade granola and blueberry sauce, french toast, sausage and fresh fruit. My favorite was the whole grain waffles topped with cranberries and rasberry butter. YUMMY! At the Blackberry Inn Jim and Cyndi go out of their way to make you feel at home, whether it is giving you advice on the best places to go or helping you with your flight arraingments. This is a great place to stay!
