Seven-acre Curtis Island is a short distance offshore at the entrance to Camden Harbor. The island is a public park but is only accessible by boat. Kayak scenic Camden Harbor then paddle out to the lighthouse to enjoy a picnic lunch on the island.
Great views of the Camden Hills, harbor seals at play, eagles, ospreys, and sailing yachts are just a few of the captivating sights.

A scenic 10 minute drive from our Inn, Bald Mountain Preserve is our favorite area hike. At 1280 feet, the mountain is the 5th highest peak on the eastern seaboard of the United States. Allow approx. 2 hours round trip for a leisurely hike.
Hiking Bald Mountain
After a short walk through the forest you will catch your first glimpse of mountain views and farmlands. For the most part, the remainder of the hike will traverse the rock bound mountain. Follow the blue blazes to the summit where you will find a large cairn in addition to a sign in the foreground with detailed information about the mountains topography.

Exploring pristine Lake Megunticook provides incredible opportunities to view the abundance of fauna and flora. Today we are highlighting the fauna. The photo below was taken from Maiden Cliff in Camden Maine which towers 800 feet above the lake. Lake Megunticook is very picturesque and has numerous coves and islands which make for great exploration.

We started nearly 300 Dahlia plants during the first week in April (plenty of snow still on the ground and 25°F) and they are now rewarding us with their colorful blooms. They are all so beautiful but our pick of the week is the lavender white beauty April Dawn.
