Captain Swift Inn
Ranked #9 of 19 Camden B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 July 2014

My mother, 24 year old daughter and I (three generations) stayed in a suite at the Captain Swift Inn this past week, and couldn't have been more pleased with the accommodations, hospitality and overall experience. The inn keepers, Linda and Norm, were always available to suggest interesting sites and make sure we had everything we needed. The breakfasts were fantastic! There is no doubt that we will return the next time we're in Camden.

Room Tip: The suites are located in the back of the inn and are roomy, quiet and very comfortable.

This is our second time staying at Captain Swift Inn....a few years ago we traveled with our two college aged children and now we are traveling without children which makes the Inn perfect for families and couples. It is easy to get to town and quiet at night. The rooms were comfortable and the breakfasts amazing, I wanted to take a picture of the plate that was served to me. The innkeepers so personal, helpful and available to talk to and get information about the area. The rooms are clean and comfortable. We will always stay at Captain Swift Inn when we come to Camden.

We just had our third wonderful experience at Captain Swift's Inn. Great rooms, breakfasts, and very helpful and friendly inn keepers! The location is very convenient to the harbour front which helps with parking. Norm and Linda have lots of ideas for sightseeing. Very fun to meet other guests from all over the world.A very welcoming inn.....

My husband and I had a wonderful time at the inn. The rooms were beautiful. The breakfast was five star delicious. The owners were the best hosts with an abundance of information for things to do in the area. Will definitely be going back!

When we go back to Camden we would very much consider staying here again. We had a wonderful experience. Our room was spacious & comfortable (http://www.swiftinn.com/coastal_hideaway.htm). Norm & Linda were amazing, they we're a wealth of information to help us enjoy our stay in the area. They were kind and even helped us find a room at another inn when they didn't have room for us for an additional night's stay. A very short walk to town so you are able to go back to change and walk back in for dinner! I hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did!

Room Tip: Loved the coastal Hideaway room! More private and very spacious with jacuzzi tub.

This is a great B&B to stay at in Camden. The rooms are spotless with all of the amenities you could need. The morning breakfast is enough to take you to dinner with a small afternoon snack...which is also offered at the inn. Norm & Linda can provide information on activities and restaurants in the mid-coast region. They are available to help, but do not hover. I'm a returning guest and recommend this inn to anyone looking for a place to relax after a day of activities. Downtown Camden is in easy walking distance with plenty of restaurants to fit various budgets. The inn is easy to find on Route One. The traffic can be a bit noisy on Route One, so if you stay in one of the front rooms, use the 'noise' machine or A/C (as needed - both provided).

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are quieter at night, but our hosts advised they are checking into changing the wi...

It was off season and we were the only guests a the Inn. The innkeepers were great - very friendly and a wonderful source of information about the Camden area. It was a very short walk to get into the town and restaurants. Everything at the Inn was done very nicely. The breakfast was delicious. We have stayed in several B&Bs and would recommend the Captain Swift to anyone interested in staying in Camden.
