How to Get Here
A local, with a little Maine Humor, would give you directions like this:
"They call it "DownEast" because when sailing back to Maine from southern New England ports like Boston or New York, you sailed down wind and east/northeast. It turns out, now that we have cars and planes, you still head the same way!
It's easy to get to Camden, Maine and you can have a lot fun getting here too! Here's a map to help.
You can fly to New York, Boston, MA, Manchester, NH, Portland or even Rockland, Maine and drive the rest of it, stopping at all kinds of interesting sites along the way.
Or, you can just get on Rt. 95 which will take you from the New Hampshire/Maine border to Portland, Maine. Then take Rt. 295 through downtown Portland, and stay right on Rt. 295 to exit 28.
You can stop and shop in Freeport at L.L. Bean for all that outdoor gear you'll need for vacationing in Maine like everything for fishing, biking, hiking, canoeing, kayaking plus a whole lot of other stores just in case you have something else in mind too. (That's exit 20 for Freeport.)
Well, when you get back on Rt. 295 from shopping in Freeport, going North still remember, take exit 28 at Brunswick and drive right up Rt. 1 through Brunswick, Wisscassett and Waldoboro.
Now, you've got your choice - stay right on Rt. 1 through Warren, Thomaston, Rockland and Rockport right into Camden The Inns are on the right going down the hill into town.
Or, in Warren, take a left on Rt. 90 and follow it right up to Rockport to save a few minutes. Turn left back onto Rt. 1 going North and when you come into Camden, the Inns are on the right, going down the hill into town. That's Elm street, you know. The Inns are at #82..
Just in case, there's one of those new fangled Google maps just below and they'll give you directions from your door to ours for free! Can you believe it?
