A relaxing New England stay at a restored B&B surrounded by gardens in the heart of pretty Camden
Camden, Maine, has long been a sought-after resort town. Often referred to as the Jewel of the Maine Coast, it’s drawn exuberant vacationers since the 1880s, and its popularity skyrocketed shortly after one enterprising hotelier in that decade opened a collection of cottages. See the city’s now-legendary hospitality at its finest at The Inns at Blackberry Common, an all-seasons TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence winner that’s just three blocks from the harbor and Camden village and features garden patches, a lovely dining room and an outdoor patio.
The Select Registry property dates back to the 19th century, and it offers an old-fashioned experience to match its old-fashioned architecture. Find spacious common rooms, games of Scrabble, an herb garden, a seasonal blackberry patch and a hearty breakfast each morning – it might include the beloved cranberry oatmeal, veggie frittatas or blackberry-sage French toast. If you like, ask the innkeepers to pack you a picnic lunch; depending on when you come, you might also attend a dinner or wine tasting. Or, if you're hungry for adventure instead, head to the nearby ski slopes or biking and hiking trails for recreation amid spectacular New England scenery.
