On a quiet side street in the heart of Camden village… Exceptional!
Come to Camden, stay in our charming Bed and Breakfast, and enjoy the best the midcoast of Maine has to offer. That’s a promise!
Romantic and comfortably elegant, the Belmont Inn has been a welcoming home-away-from-home for travelers since the 1920’s. Built as a family home in 1891, this free classic Queen Anne Victorian has lovely wraparound porches, wood burning fireplaces in the first floor living room and dining room, large perennial gardens and the understated but charming architectural details of a home built in the late 19th century.
The inn’s 6 guest rooms each have their own unique character, yet all offer important modern amenities. From soft, fluffy towels and freshly ironed bed linens, to fresh flowers from the garden, and a full, made-from-scratch breakfast served on the lovely breakfast porch, the Belmont Inn offers treats for all the senses.
The Belmont Inn is located one quiet block off of Route 1, right in the center of Camden, a quintessential New England village nestled between the mountains and the sea. It’s an easy walk to the harbor and to shops, galleries, casual and fine dining restaurants. Come, join us, for a special time away that you will never forget.
Innkeeper About Town
I’ve just spent a wonderful week at my daughter’s in upper New York state. She’s lived there less than 2 years and I was reminded for the second time of how late spring comes to the coast of Maine. The trees here are just leafing out and are that beautiful new-leaf green color. The forsythia and tulips are in full bloom and we’ve just top-dressed all the inn’s gardens with a dark, rich brown mulch. Next, I have the pleasure of my annual half-day tour of local nurseries to find the flats of pansies and inpatients we’ll plant next week. My go-to nurseries for annuals and perennials are Plants Unlimited in Rockport, ME and Green Thumb in West Rockport, ME. We get most of our tomato plants and hard-to-find herb plants from the Camden Farmers’ Market and the Belfast Co-Op.
In town things are really picking up. Camden Public Library is hard at work on plans for both the Summer Harbor Arts and Books Fair, July 16-17, and the Fall Harbor Arts and Books Fair, October 1-2. Held twice annually in Camden Harbor Park and Bok Amphitheatre, this is the first year that the Camden library will host these fairs; hence the addition of “Books” to the title because, of course, a library just has to! The Town of Camden is finalizing plans for the Windjammer Festival at Camden’s harbor September 2-4, and the Camden Garden Club is hard at work getting everything in place for the Annual House and Garden Tour on July 21. Then there’s the North Atlantic Blues Festival July 16-17; the Maine Lobster Festival August 3-7; and, looking well ahead, Christmas by the Sea in Camden, December 2-4. So many great things to do! Hope to see you here soon.
Best to all,
Guest Raves from the Belmont Guestbook
