Sometimes older B&B's and motels/hotels use their age as an excuse for being dirty or unkempt or falling apart. At Windward house, you feel the history, but everything else is new or perfectly maintained. We stayed one night in the Garden room which was perfect. It's outside in the garden so it gives you a little more privacy than the rooms in the main house. The bathroom was immaculate, everything worked, there were zero stains or cracks or bugs and everything seemed new or at least in good condition. The garden itself is a lovely place to sit and have a glass of Rose or just sit and listen to the birds. It's less than 5 minutes from the sights and sounds of Camden and the breakfast in the morning was fantastically delicious. The hosts (and Barney the dog) were likewise fantastic. Gracious, kind and knowledgeable, they made our stay one to remember. If you're looking for a place to stay while in Camden, look no further. We will return!

I wish I could give more than 5 stars for this wonderful B&B! The design and execution of everything — the rooms, the gardens, the breakfasts— was fabulous. The location was ideal on a residential street of stately mansions, now B&Bs. The Windward is set back from the road a bit and is just a short walk downhill to the harbor and the shops of Maine Street. The owners, Dan and Matt, were super friendly and helpful. They were full of great suggestions that were geared to the interest of each guest. The breakfast menu was varied and delicious each day with fresh fruit to start and choices or eggs or pancakes or French toast and several breakfast meats. The garden in the back was a delightful place to stop in the evening where you can enjoy twinkling lights, soft music, and a fire pit.

Dan's and Matt's friendly, casual, good-humored ways made us feel like we had stopped at the home of someone's best uncle(s) and had been made to feel at home there. The location was perfect for us, allowing us to walk easily into town and run-back to the inn to rest or drop off booty from a shopping splurge (and be able to walk home after a long meal and lingering conversation over drinks). The self-serve pantry and common room and gardens all show the signs of the innkeepers' careful consideration of guests' possible needs and desires. It felt good that the innkeepers choose to lay out fine quality items rather than bomb-proof, hotel industry goods. The rooms were beautifully and uniquely appointed. The furnishings and accessories were of high quality and all looked fresh and inviting. And the breakfasts were perfect for us--filling and yet not heavy, varied and yet offering familiar favorites, fresh and carefully prepared and presented.

Matt, Dan (and Barney) were consummate hosts. This is their labor of love and it shows. Great attention to detail made it one of the nicest B&B's we've stayed in. Fridge and cold water in the room, tea, coffee and a few snacks always in the kitchen, with a few modern amenities like an anti-fog mirror in the bathroom. Breakfast was delicious, and we had our own private porch off of our room, looking into an absolutely beautiful yard space with chairs, fire pit, fountains, etc. It was raining so we picked up take out. Dan set the table for us to dine in, a really sweet touch. My only regret is we did not stay more than one night.

Thank you! We always say Windward House is our little labor of love, so it is nice to see someone else refer to it as so! We are so glad that you enjoyed the property and our beautiful gardens, despite the rainy weather! The number one thing our guests say is that they wish they had more time to spend in the Camden area! Since life is too short for regrets, we hope to see you return for another visit!!

The room was exactly as we expected for a New England B &B! The owners were super nice and the breakfasts were 5 star! They made useful suggestions of things to do in the area. There was a list describing local restaurants, too. We would definitely go there again if we come back to Maine.
