Captain Swift Inn
Ranked #9 of 19 Camden B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 June 2011

Linda and Norm are absolutely the BEST innkeepers! We felt like members of the family as soon as we walked through the door. We stayed in the new wing - almost couldn't get my husband out of the jacuzzi tub - he loved it so much. The whole room was beautiful and comfortable. Linda and Norm make the most delicious breakfasts - the baked pears are the best. They are extremely warm and caring people and love taking care of other people -no detail was too small for their attention. We can"t wait to go back - Camden is beautiful and staying at The Captain Swift Inn was like the icing on the cake - if you go to Camden stay here because there is no better place - simply put they are the best!

Rooms were very spacious and exceptionally decorated. The entire Inn has been maintained in old world charm with all the modern day comforts. The rooms and bathrooms stocked with anything that you might need and more. The breakfast served rallied that of many 5 star hotels! Our hats off to the Inn owners Norman and Linda. Our stay was most memorable, most highly recommended to anyone looking to stay in one of the finest B&B's there is.

We hoped for a charming Maine Bed & Breakfast--Captain Swift Delivered!! The accommodations were spectacular! The cozy dining rooms provided the perfect setting for a top notch dining experience. After a comfortable and private night stay, we were immediately greeted by warm smiles and aromas of world-class cuisine with American and European influences, using fresh regional products like Maine blueberries and raspberries. While we were eager to explore the shops of Camden, we found ourselves immersed in the Innkeepers’ collection of short stories that herald the life and times of a place that we only imagined still existed. Our stay in Camden was an experience we shall always cherish.

My wife and I stayed at the Captain Swift Inn for just one night but wished we were able to spend a few more nights. What an amazing house and wonderful Innkeepers. The Inn's atmosphere is very warm and "homey" and Norm and Linda, the Innkeepers, make you feel welcome immediately upon entering! Linda makes the best cookies you have ever had ...! Last night we arrived with friends and were welcomed by Norm, Linda and Ajax (the cutest little dog) and Linda's famous homemade cookies. We were fortunate enough to have stayed in one their suites which are equipped with everything you could possibly need for a night away from home. The Inn and room was impecable ... and the suite also has a a gorgeous roomy loft above it. My wife LOVED the jacuzzi tub and headed directly for it when she woke up! Our room was so quiet, you could have heard a "pin drop". Breakfast was amazing. Yogurt, berries, granola ..... and then waffles with butter, fruit and whipped cream. All in perfect proportion. Norm and Linda go out of their way to ensure you have everything you need for a comfortable stay! They both are equally eager to help with anything you may need and often times, Linda will pull up a seat and chat with you. They are both very nice people -- the type of people that would accommodate you in the middle of the night if you needed something. Fabulous people with unbelievable hospitality. Thank you both for treating us so well during our stay! Everything was perfect! ~ M&M ~

We arrived home a short while ago from the Captain Swift Inn and could hardly wait to sit down to write this review. The Captain Swift Inn was one of the best getaways my husband and I have had in a LONG time! Norm and Linda (Innkeepers) certainly know hospitality! From the moment we arrived, we felt nothing short of welcome ... almost as though we were in our own home. Linda's red, white and blue cream cheese cookies were the best I have ever had. Prior to our arrival, Norm had made contact with some of the area restaurants and, in a joint effort, obtained dinner discounts for Veterans. This inn was one of the many inns across the country who graciously provided a nights stay to veterans of the military. Norm and Linda definitely go out of their way to ensure a relaxing experience to their guests and one of the best breakfasts any of us have had in a long time. Breakfast started with yogurt and homemade granola, topped with blueberries and raspberries. Minutes later, an enormous homemade waffle topped with blueberries and whipped cream. The suites are very large and roomy, tastefully theme-decorated with a King sized bed. I could hardly wait to get up this morning and pour a bath in the oversized jacuzzi tub located just steps away from the bed. Thank you, Norm and Linda for providing us a wonderful experience ...! This was our first time staying at a Bed and Breakfast but WILL definitely be back.

Nice, well run B&B, about a 10 minute walk from town. The owner/operators are very helpful & friendly with lots of advice on the area. Excellent, full breakfast, w/ coffee and other goodies available anytime. The two front rooms get some street noise so you may want to opt for a room in the back.

My husband and I stopped in Camden for one evening and stayed at the Captain Swift Inn. It's on the edge of what I would consider town, however totally walkable without issue. We arrived with Linda, the hostess, greeting us at the door. She is one of the sweetest people we have ever met. She gave us a wonderful tour and also gave us some tips on dinner, etc. She made us feel like we were welcome guests in her home - such a gratious host! Breakfast was very good - broiled grapefruit and blueberry pancakes along with any drink you can think of (juices, coffees, teas, cider, etc). My only complaint is regarding Norm (Linda's husband)... both in my phone calls to the Inn and in meeting him in person, he seems a little cold and standoffish, however don't let that deter you from staying here... we hardly saw him anyway.
