Things changed a little in Camden
Maine this past year. We are pleased to announce that the town is still vibrant
and charming. In addition to the lovely mountain and sea landscape that many
come to visit, our guests enjoy the unique Maine gifts and treasures the Main
Street stores offer. The Camden Restaurants provide local seafood and Maine brewed
beers. While the consistent loveliness of the town is a reason to return year
after year, we are pleased that there are some new businesses and activities to
add to the mix.
