Several fine restaurants in and around Camden have tempting offerings for Maine restaurant week . Actually it’s longer than a week, but that just gives you more time to sample them all! Here are just a few of the restaurants participating -
Natalie’s at the Camden Harbor inn offers a triple choice menu for $40.00, Paulina’s way and Cappy’s chowder house offer a $20.00 menu, and one of my favorite’s Lily Bistro also offering a great price of $20.00 for 3 courses. Stay at the Blue Harbor House Inn with special rates starting at $99.00 until March 12th
“The view from the forested slopes of Mount Battie straight down to the forest of masts in Camden Harbor is one of the most dramatic in New England — and never more beautiful than in fall,” writes Michael Blanding, author of the article. “For a closer look at the trees, hike nearby Mount Megunticook or Bald Rock Mountain.”
Of course, everyone who lives here already knows how beautiful Camden is in the Fall. We would love you to experience the magnificent beauty for yourselves. We hope to see you soon!
