Camden a jewel, and this inn’s a gem, in the heart of Maine’s midcoast area

Camden has been called the jewel of Maine’s midcoast, and part of its sparkle is due to the Hawthorn Inn, a picturesque, Queen Anne-style home in the town’s historic district, a short walk to the village center, steps from Camden Harbor. Rooms with harbor views, fireplaces and jetted tubs for two, hiking trails outside the door, warm hospitality are all part of the inn’s charm. And so is the two-course breakfast with specialties ranging from rum-raisin pears to Maine blueberry walnut pancakes and spinach and goat cheese frittatas. In the warm weather, breakfast is served in the inn’s lovely garden; in winter, in the dining room and library. Ask the owners for tips on activities, from sailing to skiing.

Hearty, healthy breakfast at this inn kick-starts your fun day in Maine

Once you’ve feasted, stroll down to town to check out museums, stores, galleries and historic schooner berths. Come back to the inn (you won’t want lunch) and relax on the front porch, which runs the length of the gray granite building, or in the fireplaced living room. Lots of dining options in Rockland and other coastal towns, then back to your comfy room, perhaps with its fireplace or harbor view.
