Norumbega Inn is a boutique hotel in a romantic, stone castle in Camden, Maine. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the property was a private residence for 100 years and has been operating as a luxurious inn since 2013.
Resembling a fairytale chateau rather than a medieval castle, the stunning property is unique in the area and a popular events and wedding venue (100 capacity).
From the Norumbega Inn website:
“Simple Things, Done Exceptionally Well
Upscale yet comfortable, Camden’s premier Bed & Breakfast is run by its owners, Sue Walser and Chef Phillip Crispo. In addition to the historic and unique architecture of The Norumbega Inn with its breathtaking views of the Penobscot Bay, today's Norumbega Inn provides creative and fresh cuisine and owners passionate about making your experience the best it can be.
Delighting our guests and exceeding their expectations are the hallmarks of our personal style. Sue and Phil are partners in this venture and in life. Phil is a classically trained chef who loves to use his creative finesse in the kitchen. Prior to moving to Maine, he was a chef instructor at the Culinary Institute of America – he even succeeded in scoring a ‘win’ on the Food Network’s “Chopped.”
Sue, well…. She is a business exec who screwed up making mashed potatoes in a ‘Boot Camp’ class she took at the CIA awhile back. Phil fixed her mashed potatoes and the rest, as they say, is history”.
