Company info

The Camden Maine Stay Inn is a historic, elegant and romantic bed and breakfast inn located very near the center of Camden, the most beautiful seaside village in Maine. Camden’s geography is unique – quite literally, it is where the mountains meet the sea. Camden is one of the few places in the United States, even the world, where one can hike or ski a mountain and cruise the ocean in the same day. When you combine Camden’s natural beauty with its quaint Maine coastal setting and its varied cultural offerings, it is no wonder that the town is labeled the “Jewel of the Maine Coast.” The Inn is blessed with an incredibly favorable location in the charming Historic District of Camden. It is set among several lovely, quintessentially New England residences which date back to the earliest years of Camden’s existence. From the Inn it is only a short distance – a stroll of about four minutes – to Camden’s gorgeous harbor and quaint downtown. From there one can easily walk to Camden’s many fine shops and excellent restaurants.

Property info

Hello! We are Janis and Peter Kesser, the innkeepers of the Camden Maine Stay Inn. We have owned the Inn since February 2018. Before we were the owners of the Inn, we were guests here for many years. We so thoroughly enjoyed our repeated stays at the Inn that, when the prior owners told us they intended to retire and sell the Inn, we jumped at the opportunity to become the Inn’s new owners and proprietors. Our goal is to continue and improve on the legacy of first-class accommodations and service that have been the hallmark of the Inn for many years. We hope and believe that our appreciation and enthusiasm for Maine, Camden and the Inn will both attract guests and, once they are here, rub off on them. It is so easy to fall in love with the natural beauty, history and traditions of these places – not to mention the fabulous gourmet breakfasts for which the Inn is deservedly so well known. It is not by chance that we have so many repeat guests who make it a point to stay at the Inn year after year after year. So, please come see us at the Camden Maine Stay Inn and stay for a while. We are committed to providing you with a truly enjoyable, relaxing and memorable vacation experience.

Neighborhood info

The Inn was built in 1802, is the second oldest home in Camden, and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It has been meticulously maintained over the years and captures the essence of coastal Maine. Our eight guest rooms and multiple common rooms are tastefully decorated with fine period details, are immaculately clean, and combine the elusive qualities of sophistication and comfort. Guests are welcome to socialize in our splendid common areas, including the living room, piano room (with its vintage Steinway grand piano), dining room, den, kitchen and sun porch. Inside our guests enjoy the Inn’s impressive fine art collection and extensive library of classic and contemporary works of fiction and nonfiction. Outside is our beautiful, spacious and inviting garden with abundant green spaces, walking paths, sitting areas, and a year-round stream flowing from Mt. Battie to the harbor. Each morning the Inn serves full gourmet breakfasts that emphasize fresh, homemade foods made with locally sourced ingredients. Last but not least, we are well known and admired for our relaxed, friendly atmosphere and kind, attentive (but not obtrusive), and well informed innkeepers.
