Overview

A relaxing New England stay at a restored B&B surrounded by gardens in the heart of pretty Camden

The Lowdown

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.
Good to know

Rooms

Individually decorated and named accommodations share a traditional, inviting atmosphere, as well as thoughtful extra touches to make you feel at home. Elegant Fireplace rooms are cozy and romantic, with floral wallpaper and a four-poster, queen-sized bed, plus a gas fireplace where you can curl up and relax. These abodes are found near the rear of the inn, on the second floor. Tucked behind a garden gate and a garden pathway, respectively, the Garden Gate and Hidden Garden accommodations have an entrance off the property’s secluded gardens. High ceilings and plenty of windows allow for a bright and airy vibe, while 19th-century architectural details offer a touch of historic charm. These rooms offer a king-sized bed, as well as a gas fireplace and additional amenities, including a mini-fridge, coffee maker and ceiling fan. Their luxe bathroom offers a Jacuzzi tub.

Location

A charming town in mid-coast Maine, Camden is home to shops, galleries, outdoor adventure and centuries of history. With its ocean views, beautiful coastline and plenty of water activities, it’s known as the “prettiest spot in Maine” and was named one of the Most Beautiful Towns in America by Condé Nast Traveler in 2016. Camden is pleasant, unhurried and friendly – and the inns put you just a three-block walk from the harbor and the center of the village. Easily experience everything from the arts and antiquing scenes to the many festivals to lobster boat trips and more.The area also promises plenty of opportunities for outdoor recreation. During the winter months, there’s abundant skiing, snowboarding and ice skating – snow-lovers won’t want to miss Camden Winterfest from February 4 through 12 – while the warmer months bring the chance to enjoy biking, hiking and watersports.

Perfect Escape
Reviewed 2 days ago

Catherine and Bob are fantastic hosts. Thry make you feel comfortable and welcome without being too intrusive. Breakfast was wonderful and plentiful each morning. Our room, the Victorian, was located on the second floor and was quiet. The bed was extremely comfortable, I even asked where they purchased their bedding so that I could purchase my own. The location was perfect, a short walk down to the waterfront.
We would definitely stay again and would highly recommend this for couples looking for a quiet and intimate time away.

Great B&B
Reviewed 7 days ago

We enjoyed a night at the Blackberry Inn. We arrived late and did not meet the inn keepers until the next morning. They made it very easy to get settled into our room past check in time. We stayed in the Painted Lady room which was beautifully decorated. The only downside was the bathroom was a little small but that is a minor issue. Breakfast was delicious and the staff was warm and welcoming.

Exceeded expectations!

What a fabulous find! This quaint, Victorian Inn is well located, super easy walk to the downtown harbor, along the well lit Main Street, a huge plus after watching July 4th fireworks, to quickly escape the crowd & walk home
Our room was the Salon room, upstairs in the main Inn, the original owner’s bedroom. Unique furnishings, a very high four poster bed (VERY high, I needed the step!) The only drawback, the bathroom is funky, toilet & sink in one WC, shower in another, across the room, adds to the charm
Breakfast was delicious & generous, we had lovely weather & add on the patio
The owners Katherine & her hubby, were handson & very gracious...they’ve met their calling to be innkeepers!

A wonderful b&b
