There’s no off-season for romance at Camden Harbour Inn, a Relais & Châteaux top destination and AAA Four Diamond restaurant located in the heart of MidCoast Maine’s prettiest bayside town. The inn is a short stroll from Penobscot Bay, downtown’s eclectic shopping district, and a 115-year-old yacht club. Winter is officially here to stay, at least for the next two-plus months. While that might discourage some travelers from motoring up Maine’s coast, there’s arguably no better time of year to escape the city en route to such a dazzling destination. As one of the premier romantic getaways in Maine, couples often flock to Camden’s snow-covered haven in hopes of rekindling an internal flame amid an idyllic, wintry setting. And there’s no better place to luxuriate, relax, and indulge than Camden Harbour Inn.
Explore MidCoast Maine
It’s vital to embrace winter, even if the temperatures are less than desirable. With average highs in the mid-30s, outdoor enthusiasts couldn’t ask for better weather. Camden welcomes approximately 60 inches of snow each year, which adds aesthetic appeal and snow-packed recreational opportunities. Common mid-day pursuits include cross-country skiing, backcountry snowshoeing, ice skating (in neighboring Rockport), and, of course, hours spent on the Camden Snow Bowl’s slopes—home to the U.S. National Toboggan Championships. A couple of months ago, the Camden Harbour team compiled 15 winter date ideas, which should come in handy this season.
