Historical Traveler Reviews Hawthorn Inn Camden
A Great Get Away at the Hawthorne Inn
The Howthorne Inn is a uniquely lovely and well situated property. The seaside town of Camden where it is located has its own charming small town ambience also. The (carriage house) room in which I stayed was quiet, spacious, well appointed, and was enhanced by the presence of a Jacuzzi.
My stay was made even more pleasant by the thoughtful, knowledgeable and cordial innkeeper who provided a tasty and filling breakfast. I also enjoyed the opportunity to chat with other guests, each interesting and with their own story to tell. The Howthorne experiemce was uniquely pleasant and memorable. I look forward to returning.

An inn to return to
I would like to add my commendations to others I've heard about the Hawthorn Inn in Camden, ME.It is a beautiful Victorian home with very fine accommodations. The Innkeeper, Maryanne Shanahan, is warm and welcoming and always accommodating. The breakfasts are a rare treat in taste and proportions. The Hawthorn has become for me a destination one or more times each year!
Exceptional Experience at The Hawthorn
We have stayed in Camden often, but our three-day stay last week was our first time at the Hawthorn. A truly exceptional experience, and it will not be our last.
What a lovely Inn!
Each room is unique and delightful. I have stayed at the Inn twice and will return again.
A taste of elegance
What an elegant experience: luxurious bed linens, fabulous original foods, sunshine flooding through spotless windows, and a hostess of gracious warmth. There was no detail overlooked in a perfect two-day stay.
A Class Act
Recently spent a weekend at Camden's Hawthorn Inn....what an experience! Owner Maryanne Shanahan's attention to detail is exceptional, from the ultra soft bed linens, thirsty, thick towels and robes to the delicious breakfasts of fruit, tasty yogurt and her homemade granola. This was my second stay at the Hawthorn-once in the beautiful main house and once in the romantic carriage house. A class act all the way!!
A Taste of Heaven
This has been my third stay at the Hawthorn Inn and definitely won't be my last. It is a refuge from the hectic life I lead as an ER nurse in NYC. Maryanne Shanahan, the innkeeper, has a gift of making one feel you are totally at home at this beautiful inn along with her sweet dog Tori. The rooms are gorgeous and spotless. I especially love the fireplaces and bathrooms. Breakfast in the morning is a culinary delight and the attention to detail reflects in every aspect. Maryanne's knowledge of Camden, surrounding areas and restaurants is vast and anything she recommends has been a hit. While I was there, someone was planning a wedding at the Hawthorn and I thought to myself what a perfect place for that special event. I am already looking forward to the time when I return.
Amazing Inn with an even more amazing Innkeeper
My husband and I have stayed at the Hawthorn Inn twice in the last year, and were impressed both times. Maryann Shanahan the Innkeeper, is kind, generous, and invested in making your stay at her home a marvelous experience. The food is outstanding and catered specifically for your diet, as long as you inform her ahead of time. When we were there the first time, I was pregnant, and she was able to accommodate my diet restrictions. The rooms are beautifully adorned and have all the ameneties that an Inn should have. Maryann has a great working knowledge of Camden, and is therefore able to make many suggestions for sight seeing. All in all, our two stays at the Camden in have outdone any other Inn that we have stayed at, and we highly recommend the Hawthorn Inn!
Our favorite B & B Ever!
We absolutely loved every aspect of our stay at the Hawthorn. We stayed in the carriage house - well worth the extra money. The room was gorgeous, clean, and not cluttered as a lot of older B & Bs are. The decor was classic, antique, and thoughtful without feeling like "grandma's house". The gas fireplace was a treat, and the view off the terrace was priceless. The gardens are immaculate, and our favorite part was the absolutely romantic sunken tub in the bath. The bed was utterly comfortable, and the environmentally-concious touches like little baggies for used soap (so guests could take the luxurious organic soap with them rather than throw it away) was impressive. Breakfast was sublime with a delicate egg frittata laced with homemade sweet salsa and vanilla yogurt over impossibly fresh melon - yum. We love bed and breakfasts, and this has been our favorite in our young life - bravo!
Excellent food, great location to town, the innkeeper is terrific. We stayed in the carriage house - very roomy, great bath w/jacuzzi - everything we could want - we will definitely stay here again.

October 1 Starting off. Ken drove us to LHR. Just like flying down in a Ford Fiesta rather than a Boeing. Terminal Three was resplendent, inviting and working well - so much better these days.

After a breakfast of home made pancakes and bacon, some IT lessons from Sharon and Lou and some recommendations of authors to try on the Kindle, we headed out for a bit of a road trip. Heading North we visited a very impressive bridge at Bucksport where there was also Fort Knox, not the one of gold fame but an interesting and quite historical site none the less. Then it was to Stockland ...

After a walk around town stopping into a number of the shops our guide Sharon takes us to a restaurant right on the water overlooking the harbour and two boxes are ticked, Clam chowder and a lobster sandwich. Great. Home and the serenity of this place suggests that it is time for ...
We had planned to reach the town of Bangor (Maine) for the night, but after talking to an (American) woman during breakfast at the bnb decided to drop down to Belfast on the coast, because of the better scenery down there. Going through customs was relatively easy, considering how hard they make it sometimes. The drive was good and during a stop for gas & washroom, we joked about the 16 foot Canadian canoe stuck in the back of a pick-up truck. ...

One rewarding stop was Maine Island Rag Rugs where Mary Ann Small showed us dozens of colorful rugs she weaves in her small studio. Marette and I both purchased lovely rugs to grace our homes.
Further down the road, we saw a sign for Maine Prison Showroom and wondered, "What could that be?"
So we ...
