Welcome to The Captain Swift Inn
Boutique Lodging In Camden's Seaside Village

Stay Safe . . . Stay Small 
Massachusetts, Vermont, Maine, New Hampshire, Connecticut, New Jersey & New York
No Travel Restrictions
Maine is open for all states to visit and now guests from New Jersey, Connecticut, New Jersey, along with Vermont and New Hampshire are able to visit without any travel restrictions. Guests from all other states will need to sign a Certificate of Compliance confirming that you either had a COVID-19 test within 72 hours of arrival to Maine and  tested negative or you can certify that you have been in Maine for 14 days or more and have quarantined or that you will quarantine for the duration of your visit.  While under quarantine, you can enjoy Maine's great outdoor recreational activities, but you are not able to be in spaces that are more confined, such as restaurants and shops. Dinners can be brought in and enjoyed in your guestroom.

If you plan to have a test, Maine strongly urges visitors to “Know Before You Go,” meaning you should get tested and receive test results in your home state before traveling to Maine.

We are 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. Check out the measures we're taking to keep you safe.
Rest assured that if you make a reservation and as a result of travel restrictions your reservation needs to be canceled, you will receive a full refund or, if you prefer, a credit voucher which can be applied towards a future stay, for which you'll receive a 10% lodging discount.

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 has just completed a major 12 month renovation, 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 at the patio, warming by the fire pit, or lounging in any of our three fireplaced 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 by TripAdvisor, just being awarded their 2020 Travelers' Choice Award, 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.

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