The Grand Harbor Inn, Camden’s newest and only luxury waterfront boutique Inn, located at Bay View Landing, has been recently awarded the prestigious AAA Four Diamond Rating for the second consecutive year.
The AAA Four Diamond Rating is assigned to lodging establishments that feature upscale accommodations and offer an extensive array of amenities combined with a high degree of hospitality, service and attention to detail.
The Inn is part of a select group of AAA Four Diamond Award winners. Just 4 percent of the more than 31,000 AAA-rated lodgings are awarded the prestigious AAA Four Diamond designation each year.
“We’re extremely delighted of our continued relationship with AAA and its Four Diamond Achievement ,” said Erick Anderson, General Manager of the Grand Harbor Inn. “I along with Matthew Levin, our Managing Director, are most proud of the exceptional staff involved and the hard work that’s gone into continuing the service standards that make the Inn such a special destination and one of only a handful of Four Diamond properties here in the Camden area. Our Assistant Managers, Laura Mowrey and Nicole Hawkes have been instrumental in the continuation of our awarded success.”
The Four Diamond award comes as the hotel celebrates its 3rd year of operation. The Inn has further enhanced amenities, staffing and training as a continued part of this important and prestigious designation.
AAA’s Diamond Rating System is the only ratings system that covers all of North America and one of only two that conducts physical, on-site evaluations. It is the only system that uses full-time, professionally trained evaluators to inspect each property using guidelines made available to all establishments. AAA evaluates more properties than any other rating entity in the world.

As much as I do love the excuse of my Camden Blog duties to get out there and play tourist in the town I love, we’ve decided to try something new - we’re going to be featuring different businesses here on the Camden Blog!
Our first feature is a new scooter and bike rental shop in downtown Camden called Midcoast Adventure Rentals. Here’s what they have to say:
“Rent a classic design scooter, a head-turning Scoot Coupe built for two, or a retro beach cruiser and take the road less traveled to enhance your Maine getaway. Hourly, daily and weekly rates available.”
Midcoast Adventure Rentals is located at 46 Elm, Camden (207) 209 7557
Just a brief blog to announce the spectacular new sign at the top of Bayview Street! It is double-sided and cleverly sandwiches the old weather-beaten telephone poll!
And now I’ll let the picture speak for itself:Comments (0)
So much energy in our little town this spring; there are over 25 new businesses in Camden this year!
This weekend starts a new Camden downtown tradition called Business is Blooming - Friday thru Sunday Camden will be having extended shopping hours and sidewalk sales!
Last Friday evening one of our coolest new businesses had a little party: the Bamboo Bike Studio served delicious refreshments and let us peek around at the space where they hold workshops to make these bamboo bikes - there are only three other workshop locations in the world: San Francisco, Toronto, and Greensboro! Pictures below are from that evening.
We hope you can join us this weekend or some time soon to check out everything that’s “blooming” in Camden lately!
It may be a bold statement, but while there are numerous pleasures in a Camden winter (the holidays, snow sports, cozy times around a fire, a quiet harbor…), I think the event that generates the most energy and excitement is definitely the Toboggan Nationals weekend.
Hosmer Pond next to the Camden Snow Bowl becomes a tiny village of tents and shacks - a unique social scene akin to tailgating, with fast sleds and creative costumes as the main event. Spectating is done primarily from the ice, though the food tents up on the hill next to the chute generate enthusiasm and a good crowd too. The weather took a toboggan chute-like plummet from balmy to frigid, but I saw competitors and spectators fully enjoying themselves. There’s also a fun and fast tubing hill, and of course, many skiers and snowboarders took advantage of the Snow Bowl’s trails.
And the fireworks! Oh how I do love a good fireworks show, and Saturday’s display over the harbor did not disappoint!
PS If you disagree, feel free to share YOUR favorite part of winter in Camden!
I don’t know about you, but while I hate being late to work, I also hate arriving too early, especially this time of year when there’s so much to do! I put my early minutes to use yesterday morning and took a photo down on the harbor of one of the remaining windjammers (see the first picture in the second row). Then around 3pm or so, I happened to look out and see the rich afternoon light; I abandoned the gallery and ran down to the dock to take another shot. THEN after I locked up, I saw the tree on top of the mast was lit up and the moon was on the rise! (Sometimes doing “photo shoots” for this blog makes me feel like a real photographer. Except without the nice equipment and expertise.)
The top three pictures are from Harbor Park at the Camden Library. See the sailboat with the rust-colored sail? Mainers are hearty souls, boating into mid-December!
Best wishes and Happy Holidays from Camden!
