Be Our Guest

Welcome to Elms of Camden, a premier Bed & Breakfast located in the seaside village of Camden, Maine.

We think Camden is the best small town in America! But don't take our word for it. Read what Conde Nast Traveler wrote about Camden in a June 2017 article.

"This classic New England seaside town is so picture-perfect that it was the primary filming location for the 1957 movie about a seemingly idyllic town, Peyton Place. The motto of Camden has long been "Where the mountains meet the sea," and indeed, Mount Battie and Bald Mountain rise up above the harbor and the village, and a hike to the top of the former will reward you with a stellar view."

And Architectural Digest ranked Camden as one of the 25 Best Small Towns in America. Click here to read the article from February 7, 2018.

Take a tour of our website, and don’t hesitate to contact us if you have questions or need additional information. Whether you’re here for a day or week, we hope you leave with a lifetime of memories!

Something for Everyone

Walk to the harbor, shops, galleries, and restaurants or hike the many trails of Camden Hills State Park and Mt. Battie with spectacular views of the bay. Camden is ideally located for day trips north to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park or south to the outlets in Freeport. 

Each morning, be our guest for a delicious breakfast that changes daily. When possible, we partner with small farms and local suppliers, always using seasonal and fresh ingredients. From farm to table, a simple breakfast....done right.

The patios, gardens and Keeping Room are perfect spots for relaxing between the day’s adventures and for spending time with guests or your innkeeper hosts.
