What Our Guests Say
“This historic inn is beautiful and immaculate – a comforting thought in this era of Covid-19 – and most interesting with its extensive gardens, Chihuly glass pieces, Steinway piano, and tuxedo cat.” (2020)
“The several sitting rooms were lovely as was the dining room and bright, warm, glassed-in porch.” (2019)
Communal Aspect of our Lovely Common Rooms
One of the most inviting and rewarding things to do when you are staying at the Camden Maine Stay Inn is to relax in one of our fabulous common rooms. The Inn has a living room, piano room, den, dining room, kitchen, and sun porch, all of which are tastefully decorated and comfortably appointed. You are welcome to spend time in these lovely rooms, whether visiting and sharing stories with other guests, quietly reading a favorite book (including any one from our extensive collection), displaying your musical talent on our Steinway grand piano, or watching a favorite TV show. After all, the Inn always has been, is now, and hopefully always will be a home – and, in this case, your home away from home.
Our Love Affair with Fine Art
The common rooms contain many works of fine art that we have collected over the years while living in other parts of the country and traveling around the world. You will see paintings from Maine, Michigan, Mississippi, Montana, Tennessee, Texas, China, Georgia (the country), Guatemala and Wales; photographs from Louisiana, Maine, Portugal and Spain; pottery from Tennessee and Mexico; wood carvings from Guatemala and Ireland; bronze sculptures from California and Tennessee; tapestries from Guatemala; and glass from Arizona and Washington. We believe that these fine artworks not only enhance the Inn’s general appearance, but also create a more pleasant, relaxing atmosphere for our guests.
Support Maine’s Artists and Artisans
We are long-time, enthusiastic supporters of Maine artists and artisans. We are particularly fond of the heirloom-quality wood furniture handcrafted by Thos. Moser in their workshop in Auburn. Throughout the Inn’s common rooms, and in certain guest rooms, there are more than a dozen pieces of Thos. Moser furniture which is widely appreciated for its natural beauty and splendid craftsmanship. We encourage you, while you are with us in Maine, to support the many fine artists and artisans who live and create here.
