• This property is absolutely gorgeous and Jacquie’s (owner's assistant) greeting was warm and inviting. We also appreciated the time she took to explain the history of the Inn. The locking system on the front door is quite a comfort and we wish more Inns offered this. Sadly times have changed so having that extra security measure was a brilliant...

My partner and I stayed at the Norumbega Inn back in October and we loved the Inn and Camden as an area! The castel, the staff, the room, the breakfast, the decor - everything. We loved it so much that we decided to come back in april with our parents. So we booked 3 rooms and our parents loved it...

My husband and I wanted to celebrate my birthday by inviting our grown kids and their significant others to stay at the Norembega Inn with us. We had read about Chef Phil's amazing seven course dinners and felt this would be a great way to celebrate my big day by adding the wine pairings and staying overnight. The event did...

We felt so honored to be apart of your birthday celebrations! We're glad we lived up to your expectations on both accommodations and food. It's a special treat when our guests appreciate the love and character of the house the way you did. It was wonderful to meet the whole family, and we hope to see you all again soon!

We stay here once each year--the Library Room is our favorite room. We also signed up for the 7 course meal they offer, and being a food snob I'm happy to report that it might be the best food in Maine.

Upon my own review before submission, I saw this as a teenie bit long, but please read it. Trust me, it's worth it. You won't regret it. I promise.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Norumbega Inn! It is restored beautifully and you felt like royalty while there! The owners are so very friendly and the food was fabulous! The other guests were varied and wonderful to chat with! Recommend this to anyone interested in a "royalty" stay! Have highly recommended this to all our friends!

My husband and I spent the night for my birthday weekend, and it couldn't have been more special. Our room looked out over the expansive property, and we were delighted to have heated floors in the bathroom.

We spent two nights at the Norumbega Inn for a Christmas getaway. We had a room with a gas fireplace and a bay window looking out onto Penobscot Bay. It was wonderful. Our only complaint is that they need to put two new chairs in the room. The chairs They have are old and not very comfortable. However, we still...

We were lucky enough to book our first stay at the Norumbega Inn for four nights following Christmas. Upon our arrival, we were met by Sue, and shortly thereafter by Phil.
