Stay Safe . . . Stay Small 
No Travel Restrictions - All States Welcome!

Effective May 24th, 2021, all states are exempt from travel restrictions unless otherwise determined by the Maine Center for Disease Control.  Face masks are no longer required for fully vaccinated guests who received their second dosage at least 14 days prior to their visit. Guest who are not fully vaccinated are strongly encouraged and it is recommended they wear a face mask.

During the past year, we've been proud to have earned the Select Safe, Stay Select status from Select Registry Distinguished Inns of North America.  This industry-leading set of health and safety guidelines is a self-certification program based on recommendations by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), U.S. Travel Association, American Hotel & Lodging Association, and other industry leaders. Although Federal and State CDC guidelines have eased, we are continuing with many of these enhanced protocols since we believe they are "better and best practices." Check out the measures we're taking to keep you safe.

Welcome to The Captain Swift Inn, Camden's newest totally renovated Bed & Breakfast Inn! Located in Maine’s Mid-Coast region, only two blocks from Camden’s charming seaside village featuring unique shops, sumptuous restaurants, and a picture-perfect harbor. The Captain Swift Inn offers luxury and pristine lodging; impeccable service and unparalleled candlelit breakfasts to discerning travelers – all in a relaxed, upscale, and casual environment!

Although a Maine bed and breakfast for many years, the Inn completed a major 12-month renovation in 2019 and more than just the structural and system improvements - everything in the Inn is new! From new quality Comphy brand linens, hypoallergenic pillows and comforters; plush euro top mattresses; thick thirsty Turkish towels; new furnishings, spa showers, and many other varied amenities that we believe our guests will value.

Our Inn features nine soothing guest rooms and suites, all handsomely appointed; boasting en-suite baths to include spa showers with massage body sprays. Some rooms have private decks; most have fireplaces and all have smart TVs with premium channels.  You'll enjoy spending time on the patio, warming by the fire pit, or lounging in any of our three fireplace sitting rooms. Soft music; fresh flowers; locally made chocolates; plush robes and more are what you can expect while staying at the Inn! Let us spoil you with our signature three-course candlelight breakfasts which is a unique and memorable experience. First Course is a European-inspired starter, where you choose from over a dozen items, followed by a prepared fruit course and then the entrée of the day. 

Choose from one of our delightful guest rooms or expansive suites, most of which have fireplaces to warm those cool Maine evenings! Explore the natural beauty of Camden, Rockport, and Lincolnville, or wander just a little further to other neighboring towns, returning each evening to the Inn for a beverage of your choice from our full-service bar while enjoying a complimentary local cheese plate. In the warmer months, relaxing by the fire pit is an enjoyable way to start or end your evening!

 Camden is the ideal location from which to explore Maine’s Mid Coast and The Captain Swift Inn is the perfect get-away retreat, a true Maine Inn! Use our Inn as the "hub" as you explore points North and South of the Inn. Day trip to Bar Harbor or travel south 45 minutes to Booth Bay - all an easy drive from Camden.

Most importantly, when you stay at The Captain Swift Inn, you'll be greeted with a warm welcome and we'll do everything possible to ensure that your lodging experience is the best it can be! We provide concierge services to help you get the most out of your Maine getaway! And since we live on-premises, either we or our Assistant Innkeeper will always be available to assist you in any way at any time.

We are proud to be a Select Registry Distinguished Inn of America property; the number one rated Inn in Camden and the #10 rated Inn in the United States by TripAdvisor, just being awarded their Travelers' Choice Award for two consecutive years, and the only Camden inn with fewer than 10 rooms to receive the prestigious 4 Diamond rating from AAA, their highest quality award for Bed and Breakfasts. 

When you reserve a room at the Captain Swift Inn, you can be assured you've made the right choice selecting us for your Camden getaway. Stay with us and experience the difference!

With few exceptions, we are open year-round and look forward to meeting you and hosting your stay in Camden Maine.
