Ho Ho Ho! Merry Christmas?! The Holiday season seems to be here, whether we’re anxious or not, the yuletide is upon us. We have free Christmas wrapping paper/tape etc available for all those wonderful gifts you have to give, and a complimentary hot peppermint patty (hot choc and peppermint schnapps!) while you enjoy your stay!
In reality, Black Friday, Cyber Monday and those other “retail inspired” celebrations are NOTHING in comparison to what we “small townies” or “village people” call a good time. We have the lighting of the star atop Mt. Battie, the Parade of Lights in Downtown Rockland and a similar daytime idea for Camden as well. Breakfast with Santa at the Chowder House, and much, much more to occupy our time. Sheesh! Santa even takes the time to cruise into some local harbors by boat, as the reindeer stay on ice atop the North Pole. Whatever we’re doing, it’s all relevant, and made possible by hundreds of volunteers, business owners, and Community members alike who LOVE the season, and love to help out. We’re grateful for the good times, and memories that are made. For more information, if you’re here for the duration, we encourage you to visit our local Chamber of Commerce’s event on their Facebook page!
For a short time this next week, two amazing vessels are docked right here, inside of our very own Camden Harbor. The Niña is in fact the most historically accurate Columbus replica ship that’s ever been built. The Pinta, although larger and more accommodating to tours and private parties or charters, accompanies her “sister ship” to offer tourists, onlookers, and guests the chance for the “big picture.”
These two “ladies” travel all around the World giving kids, adults, and seniors the chance to experience a little history in their own backyard. You can visit them here to find out where they’re going next, the cost of a tour, or perhaps a special request for a private charter or tour of your very own.
One of our most popular tours this summer is the two hour Camden Harbor kayak tour. At just $35.00 pp this two hour guided tour is great value, and has had rave reviews from our guests. You’ll head out past cruising yachts and tall masted schooners, taking in the majestic coastline from a unique perspective. Still time to book up. The kayak tour sets off from Camden harbor, just a short walk from the Inn. We book the whole thing – you just show up and have fun!
In the most beautiful setting down by Camden Harbor over 100 artists and crafts people display their fine artwork, sculpture, jewelry and more. This 35th summer show is now a two day celebration of the arts. Choose a piece of individually designed jewelry or artwork and know that no-one else will have the same!
It is free and oen to all. 9.00am-5.00pm both days.
