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

A Special Note To Guests - For the safety of our guests, team members and family - we made the difficult decision to remain temporarily closed for the most, if not all, of April. We will continue to monitor the situation and directives from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention; the World Health Organization and Maine's Governor Mills, and will adjust the re-opening date as necessary. 

Over the past couple of months, like many inns, we introduced more aggressive sanitizing and housekeeping procedures. However, in light of the current COVID-19 situation, we feel the best way for us all to remain safe and return to life as we know it is to practice physical distancing. We miss our guests and want to remain social and would love to know how you are doing. Please follow us on Facebook or Instagram and drop a note!  We look forward to hosting you at the Inn soon! Be Safe  . . . Carolyn & Rick
