We came upon this wonderful place almost by accident, the home is a elegant gem. From the moment we stepped into the lobby until we checked out the experience was perfect. The room was beautiful and produced one of the best sleeps of my life! The breakfast was not only delicious but graciously served and elegantly presented. Do yourself a...

We're happy you were able to rest and relax while you were here with us! We are partial to thinking that the house is special with its rich history, but we're glad you felt the same way. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

Please allow me to gush a bit... My wife and I were fortunate enough to hear that it was possible to have dinner at the Inn, even though we did not stay there yet. It was a 60th birthday celebration for me and my wife knows a friend of Sue's. So there you have an example of not what you...

My daughter and I were so glad we chose the Norumbega Inn over the other lodging options in Camden. For starters, the Inn is beautiful, but not so fussy and proper that you are afraid to sit down or walk around. In fact, exploring the house and its many nooks and crannies was part of the fun of our stay!...

Sorry, this is going to be long but I think it's helpful information to know and consider when choosing a place to stay. To begin with, I wish there were more stars to give the Norumbega than just 5. My husband and I were so impressed with the friendly and helpful staff, the lovely room, the FANTASTIC breakfasts each morning,...

Wow! Thank you for such a thoughtful review. We loved having you two stay with us. It's always wonderful to have guests who appreciate the inn for its history and quirks, but also feel comfortable, since it is a house after all. We're glad you enjoyed the breakfasts and dinner Chef Phil creates. We are surrounded by incredible farms (and...

This hotel and staff made this the best vacation we have had in years. Our room was comfortable. The location is a perfect location in Camden and an easy walk to downtown. Sue and staff are very professional.

Husband and I just returned from a lovely trip to Maine where we stayed at this Inn. The Inn is lovely and genuinely old with all the creaks and groans that come with an old building.

My fiancé and I stayed at the Norumbega Inn on our summer road trip up the coast of Maine. We chose to stay in bed and breakfasts along the way and the Norumbega Inn was certainly our favorite.

We stayed here for our 11th anniversary. I had wanted to see the inside of this property for the past 30 years and am so glad we had this opportunity. From the warm welcome by Jackie, and the hospitality of Susan, and the food from the chef, I would recommend staying at The Norumbega at least once if you can....

We just spent 3 nights at this magnificent inn. The architecture is stunning and mostly original but has been significantly updated and restored.

We stayed here for our 20th anniversary. What a beautiful place and such gracious hosts. Gorgeous 19th century castle type inn with a very talented chef as the co-owner. Recommended for special occasions, trips through Maine, and for visiting the beautiful harborside city of Camden.
