The Hawthorn Inn has become my Maine home away from home when I come to Maine to take the incredible weekend woodworking classes at Lie-Nielsen Toolworks in nearby Warren. Now, I can’t imagine staying anywhere but the Hawthorn inn. The lovely old house quietly tells its history, the rooms are lovingly appointed with guests’ comfort in mind, and the back...

A fabulous stay at this inn. Breakfast was very elegant and delicious. Great location-easy walk to town and shortcut to harbor. We stayed in the Turret room. Very comfy bed. The grounds are very peaceful. Good country road biking opportunities nearby. The inn serves breakfast at 830 which was a bit late for us but the breakfasts were worth waiting...

A beautiful elegant Inn in a wonderful location. Our Regency room was tastefully furnished and had a wonderfully large bathroom. Maryanne and Bill were wonderful hosts and nothing was a trouble to them. They suggested places to visit and made restaurant reservations for us. The Inn is their home and this was very apparent. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and...

I was late arriving- flight was changed so spent 3 hours in Philly airport. Got my car at Bangor airport and headed to Camden when the rain started- it was dark, wet and I couldn't find the Inn! Maryann was so understanding. I stayed in the Emma Knight room and it was perfect. It was actually a suite as they...

Having said it all, nearly, with "perfection" I can only add that our hostess was welcoming and thoughtful, and the breakfasts served here are as good as they get: homemade pancakes with fresh Maine blueberries, fresh fruit with yogurt one morning, egg tacos and fruits another--all artfully presented, and served with panache. The room was comfortable and--on two hot days--mercifully...

It is obvious that Maryann enjoys running a B&B and doing it in style. There are many different types of rooms for all kinds of budgets. We had the Turret room and though the ensuite bathroom was actually a converted closet, therefore very small, it was perfectly functional with an excellent shower. The bed was super comfy. And the 2...

We recently spent 2 nights at the Hawthorn Inn in Camden, ME and it was absolutely lovely. The room was clean, the bathroom was brand new, and the bed was so comfy.

This was our first B&B experience. Bill and Mary Ann went out of their way to make it great! I still think about the wonderful, fresh breakfast.
