Ball & Albanese

Camden, Maine

1 of 24

Fishing boats bob in the harbor, the streets are lined with mom-and-pop stores, and the whitewashed houses are surrounded by gardens. Welcome to the village of Camden. Dutch natives Raymond Brunyanszki and Oscar Verest fell in love with the town on a visit here in 2004, and three years later they decided to buy and renovate the Camden Harbour Inn (doubles from $295, including breakfast). The 18 rooms are named after Dutch East India Trading Company ports—Curaçao, Sumatra, Mauritius—and filled with Asian antiques. At the on-site restaurant, chef Lawrence Klang prepares a stellar lobster tasting menu.

Don’t Miss: A bike ride along Rockport Harbor. Bicycles are available at Maine Sport Outfitters (rentals from $20), and the inn’s friendly front desk clerk Patty Ross will map out the best routes.
