Help us out!


The weather here in Camden is gorgeous and Gnorm will soon be able to start his travels to bring our guests updates and photos of some of the fun things to do and great scenery of our area. Tell us some of the places you know and have been to here in Maine that you would like Gnorm to show to other travelers!

Post your own pictures from your stay! Tell us where you'd like to see Gnorm go! (Be nice now, remember, this is a family facebook page!) He'll do his best to get there.

Plants are in!!


Photo: Gnorman has assumed a new position as head groundskeeper at the Captain Swift Inn! Not surprising as he is a garden gnome. Who's to argue with 965 years of gardening experience!

Last year was Gnorm's first with us as a permanent resident, he finally retired and was able to join us and set us on the right road with our yard. The flowers were never better!! 

As you can see, Gnorm has been busy today planting the edible flowers we use to decorate the great breakfasts here at the Captain Swift. Just the marigolds, so far, but others will be coming soon.

He also was able to get the fresh herbs potted that we use in our cooking. We now have our parsley, oregano?, rosemary and thyme growing. I guess he is not a big fan of Simon and Garfunkel! He has planted the mint we often use on our starters as well.
He invites our guests to pick their own if they would like.

More photos to come soon!

WELCOME BACK GNORMAN!!

We want to welcome Gnorman back to the Captain Swift Inn! As you all remember, Gnorman is the entertainment director and official greeter here at the Inn. Of course, like many higher ups in any organization, Gnorm h...as earned the right to take off during the year for "company business". This off season Gnorm did some exhausting research on other places to stay. He has just come back from a fact finding tour to Bora Bora! He loved staying in the huts that are on piers out over the crystal clear water, but watch out for the sharks! Still, he could not wait to return to the Captain Swift!! He has to relax for a bit from his travels, but he will be back cruising around town soon! One his favorite ways to relax is in one of our great rockers, kicked back with some home baked cookies and a glass of great lemonade!


Watch for his continuing adventures and his great travel tips for your stay in Camden. Please make sure you say hi to him when you come in, we don't want him to get his feelings hurt!

Lighthouses in Maine

Lighthouses were once the saviors of the seacoast. Their bright beacons and resonating foghorns cut through foul weather, warning ships of impending danger and guiding them safely back to shore. In this age of radar and GPS, lighthouses no longer have the life and death significance they once did, yet these distinctive structures still carry the romance and drama of their pasts. More than 60 lighthouses dot the Maine coast from the well known Nubble Light in York to West Quoddy Head, the easternmost lighthouse in the United States.
