This really is our favorite place on the Maine coast. We have stayed in other places in Camden and up and down the coast but this is the place we go back to for a weekend getaway even though it is an hour from home. We love Mary Jo and Michael. They are outstanding people and extremely talented, he in producing the most fabulous meals and she in creating a wonderful relaxing place one longs to return to. We always marvel at the quality of the staff who seem proud to there,as though they are invested in the place, seem always happy welcome guests and are very competent and attentive,
The rooms are great, a blend of modern comfort and vintage charm without being dated, faded or aged as some B&B's can be. We have favorites and recommend upgrading though even their most modest accomodations are comfy. The breakfasts are increidble, full, satisfying, tasty, and beautiful.
We like the cocktail hour gathering before dinner in which they offer specially priced drink (a $5 basil martini when we were there last!) though other drinks are available as well. A pleasant conversation with other guests can usually be had before you go in to dinner. Dinner is an experience that will bring you back over and over. If you think you have had the best of lobster, you need to try Michael's. I want to get in the car right now and drive there for dinner, just thinking about it.
For a really fun experience, sign up for the cooking weekend package. Not only do you get a fabulous dinner but also an afternoon cooking with Michael, who is as much fun as he is talented in the kitchen. You may be inspired to inquire about their foody tours to Italy, France or Spain, events that you can watch videos of at your breakfast table. Imagine taking the Harstone Inn cooking weekend experinece and moving to a villa in Tuscany!! Oh my, an experience of a lifetime, but that is another review!

Room Tip: Sign up for a special cooking weekend!!

Another wonderful visit. This is one of our favorite places to stay at. Staff is top notch and are great helping with day plans. The food is way past 5 star. Michael and his chefs always outdo themselves. Mary Jo is always ready with a smile and helpful hints. You won't regret staying here. We will be back next year. Also they do European Foodie trips and we have been on 2 and they were best ever. Give it a try.

Positives about this B&B are the quality of the food for breakfast - home made and high end. The interior decor is very nice and well maintained. Location - you are right in the town so it's easy to walk all around.

The only item to think about is that the main house is located on a main road so the road noise may bother some people.

Room Tip: Away from the road side will be quieter for sleeping.

I took my boyfriend here for two night as a birthday present. We stayed in the Lavender suite at the hideaway (which is around the block from the Main house.
The room was beautiful , with lavish painting and soft high quality bedding. We had a gas fireplace in the sitting room.& A Jacuzzi Tub . they supply beautiful bathrobes to use . The Staff couldn't be more helpful. They give you suggestions on what to do and printout how to get there.
The Food OMG the food. Michael is an amazing Chef, I could rave all day about how delicious everything was. Friendly staff very clean. The Area is beautiful. I want to Thank them for everything. I will defiantly be back.

Room Tip: upgrade to a suite you get two rooms. and it not expensive to upgrade .The Lavender room is beautiful.

This is one of the best B&B's we have been to in a long time. The food and the service was top notch. My wife and I have been to many B&B's domestic and international and we have found the service and food was nothing less than First Class. The staff was very professional and friendly. We highly recommend Hartstone Inn..
