Towne Motel History:

The Towne Motel is a property with layers of history. The first layer is the house which fronts Route One. Our 1853 home was part of a large plot of land owned by the Taber family. The Tabers operated a forge out of the property immediately south of us; on our plot, one of the Taber sons ran the saddlery, which made saddles, harnesses, and bridles. Instead of a parking lot full of cars, think horses!

Fast forward to 1955, when the Towne Motel (a “motor hotel”) was built to host the first big wave of vacationers heading to Maine by car. For many years, the motel was only one story. Our electrician tells us that back in the day, Towne Motel included a hamburger stand. The original sign (in aqua and blue) boasts TV…and hot water! In the 1980s the sign was replaced with the large blue one you see today, and the second floor of our Camden Maine Motel was built. Every set of owners over the years has added their own touches and improvements to “the Towne,” as it is affectionately known in Camden. With annual upgrades and makeovers, we are carrying on that tradition.

What Our Guests Are Saying:

Best place to stay anywhere on the Maine Coast. Siobhan and Katja are the best hosts anyone could hope for. They are very helpful in every way, from directions to restaurants and attractions to making the best baked goodies for breakfast. We particularly like that every year (we have been coming there at least 2-3 times a year for six plus years) they make improvements and upgrades to all the rooms so each stay there is better than the last. The place is the best combination of a traditional motel and a B&B: Guests get a private room with an exterior entrance and an ensuite like a regular motel plus they have a wonderful breakfast that you can have in their dining room or take back to your room. In the “quiet season” as they call it they even will put your breakfast in a basket and hang it on the doorknob of your room the night before!!! And of course all the usual amenities one might expect from a much pricier place are there, at a surprisingly reasonable cost: wi-fi, heat, AC (very quiet heat pump splits), coffee makers, refrigerators, and everything is extremely clean and well-maintained. For us, the best part is that you can park your car near your room and just walk to everything in Camden, a beautiful and compact walking-friendly town. Our favorite place to stay anywhere on the Maine coast. Eric E
