Captain Swift Inn
Ranked #9 of 19 Camden B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 October 2013

We have been to the captain swift inn twice now and plan on many returns! First in August with my parents and recently just for two, Linda and Norm consistently provide a lovely stay. With fresh linens, comfortable beds, the rooms are incredibly cozy and resting well is a guarantee. The breakfast is top notch; I am still thinking about the various delicious meals that Linda provides every morning. Parking is easy and the walk into town is just a few blocks, the perfect stroll to work up an appetite. The hosts are so helpful about all things Camden and the surrounding area. I highly recommend this inn as a perfect home base when visiting beautiful Camden, Maine. We look forward the next visit!

We stayed in the cabin retreat suite, peaceful, wonderful, and spacious. Great location from town and the state park. The staff was sweet. The breakfasts were incredible. We loved Ajax the dog! Really felt like home away from home.

Linda and Norm were amazing innkeepers! They were so helpful, and had a great deal of information and tips on things to see in the area; Norm even made a map of all of the sights for us to check out. The breakfasts were some of the best my wife and I ever had, and the room was beautiful! We can't wait to go back! Next time, we want to stay a week instead of a few days!

The Inn is also very conveniently located; we had a very short walk to visit all of the restaurants and shops nearby, and Camden is a short drive away from plenty of great places to visit in Maine. We would definitely recommend the Captain Swift Inn to anyone visiting Maine!

We only enjoyed the Captain Swift Inn for one night but it was very memorable. We stayed in one of the two suites which was nicely furnished and spacious. Linda and Norm were very gracious innkeepers and the breakfast in the morning was outstanding and kept us satisfied for the long day of touring that followed. What more could you want from a B&B? Thanks Linda and Norm!

We loved staying here, would have stayed longer except they were booked. We love old houses and this was clean, beautifully decorated and had everything you would need or want...great shower, delicious breakfast, friendly, caring hostess and host, parking, and a short walk to the town, the harbor and many great shops and restaurants. We look forward to coming back to stay here again! One note to people visiting the town is to go in the Camden Public Library...it is really amazing!

Room Tip: We stayed in the smallest room, least expensive and it was fine. We don't spend a lot of time i...

We stayed one night at the Captain Swift Inn. It was in a good location close to a couple of nice little restaurants. The room was very clean and comfortable and more than adequate for our needs. The rooms vary in size so you may want to check this when you book. The hosts could not have been more pleasant and helpful. The breakfast was perfect and very filling. It's perfectly located, just a short walk to the harbour area where you can have a fantastic 2 hour cruise in a schooner for around $40/person. Definitely would recommend this B&B

Room Tip: Call first and check the size of the room as they vary

Our most pleasant visit to camden was especially enjoyable because of our stay at Captain Swift Inn. It's a charming B&B, attractively decorated, very clean with lovely furnishings. The Inn is just a short walk to the center of Camden. We could not have asked for more charming and helpful Host and Hostess who immediately make you feel welcome. And the breakfast they serve is outstanding!

On a scale of 1 to 10, Captain Swift rates a 10 plus. Definitely a must on our next visit to Camden.
