We have had such a great, home like stay at Camden Riverhouse over the last 6 years. We joined a group of families who make this a tradition. It was easy to make it a family tradition as well. Ralph and Dave have made us feel at home and we appreciate it! We look forward to next year!

We enjoyed our stay the location was right Dow town so we were able to walk to all the fun. The staff was very friendly and made us feel right at home. The boys enjoyed the cookies candy and hot chocolate at the front desk.

Room Tip: For a few extra dollars we opt for the bigger room. Glad we did .

Dear Mark K,

Christmas by the Sea is a fun time. We have many repeat guests and we enjoy visiting with them and also welcoming new guests. We are thrilled your family enjoyed the cookies and hot chocolate at the front desk and indeed we are very lucky to be located in downtown with our own parking lot. All the great shops and restaurants are right at our door. We hope your boys were able to enjoy our indoor pool and hot tub inbetween the fireworks and the parade.

We hope you will stay with us when you are in Camden or mid-coast Maine.

Best,
Ryan Reynolds

Perfect location for downtown Camden! Incredibly helpful and friendly staff who went out of their way to help, even making waffles for us at the great continental breakfast. Would highly recommend the Camden Riverhouse and will definitely stay here again.

Whenever we are in Camden we stay at the Camden Riverhouse. Very friendly and helpful staff, and the hotel is located just one block from the main street for shopping and dining. Plus, we get to bring our chihauhau with us! She loves it!

Camden is a great town and the staff and room were great! Thanks for a great stay! The fire pit in the evening with somemores was delightful. The location close to the Main Street and library was perfect - don't miss the town library. It is beautiful with free concerts.

We stayed two nights in the Riverhouse Hotel. The location was one block from Main Street and stores and near many nice restaurants .The staff was friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. They made recommendations for restaurants and sightseeing and where to buy sandwiches to eat while traveling. In the evening we were invited to sit by the fire pit and enjoy the fire and eat s'mores and chat with the other guests .Breakfast is included and very good and plentiful. We enjoyed our stay in Camden and the Riverhouse Hotel.
