“Outstanding inn”
Reviewed 15 September 2013

Accommodations were excellent. We arrived 3 hours early to find our room ready for us with immediate check-in. Hotel staff was very helpful and friendly. A nice assortment of breakfast choices was available. The fire and smores are a nice touch. The location of the inn is perfect for anyone who wants to spend time at the waterfront, being only a few blocks away. We heartily recommend it.

This place is really unusual. For example, it has a fire pit outside in the back that not only works and attracts a relaxed group of happy people in the evenings, but the hotel supplies the makings and prongs for smores, so everyone can eat up. Too, there is a separate and charming red brick house out back, see pic, that is available on a whole house basis for weddings, conferences and etc. The sheets, towels and beds are superb. Amazingly, the AC is quiet and even has a soft start, so one isn't awakened every time it cycles. Nice touch. Has fast (for a hotel) WIFI, 2.20 down, 5.05 up, but not secured, no password, so a little open to the world. A small walkway bridge leads right to town. On the idiosyncratic side, the entrance walks are about buried in garden plants. Maybe that's where the owner's salads come from.

This hotel may not be as quaint as some of the B&Bs in the area, but it is an excellent choice for visiting Camden. It is well-located and clean, the staff is friendly and helpfu, and the included breakfast offered many choices. The garden provided a pleasant outdoor space and the firepit was great.

My wife and I were traveling with our dog and were made to feel quite welcome. The Inn handled a last minute schedule change graciously. All of the main attractions were within walking distance so we were able to leave our car in the Inn parking lot for most of our stay.

We will definitely return.

My family of 5 stayed in 2 rooms on the first floor in August. We picked this hotel because of the location and the pool, and we were very happy with our choice. The location is perfect, right in the middle of everything but somehow that footpath makes you feel like you're stepping into a magical garden. The backyard is good for kids to run around in, and the s'mores and campfire on a Saturday night were a wonderful treat. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Small refrigerator and coffee makers in each room were very convenient (one night we decided not to drag the kids to another restaurant but instead got some fruit and cheese at the grocery store and had a picnic in the backyard). The staff was super friendly and helpful. The pool was a highlight for the kids, although I found the pool area the least impressive - to keep it cool they don't open any windows so the chlorine smell and damp air was a little much for me. Overall the whole family was very happy with the hotel and we will definitely be back again.

We recently stayed at The Camden Riverhouse. The location was wonderful and we appreciated being able to keep our car parked at the hotel and walk to everything in the village, including all the shops and great restaurants. Our room was very clean and quiet and we thought the beds were especially comfortable. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was definitely adequate with fresh fruit each morning. It was served in a very pleasant room and you also had the option of eating outside on the lovely deck. Overall, we had a great experience and definitely plan to return for another stay!

We stayed two nights of our week enjoying the Maine coast. We were welcomed by friendly desk staff and surprised by a very nicely appointed room on the second floor. Te loation is perfct and only a short walk to shops an rstaurants. It was harvest time and the vegetables (tomatoes and squashes were ripening. Every day the staff picked the ripe vegetables and left them out for guests to take. Nice touch!! Also we were surprised at the pet friendly policy and although we didn't have a pet with us, we did enjoy petting and playing with other guests pets. This is a good place to note that many places along the coast including hotels and restaurants were pet friendly. The Riverhouse is great place to stay while in Camden.

Room Tip: The secod flor is quiet and conveient fr the free contiental breakfast

This is a very good place all around. The service is prompt and efficient. The location is the best. They have extras like lollipop and marshmallow. But what I truly love is the people working there. They work hard and attend to your need ASAP.
