Ayer, Massachusetts
Reviewed 11 October 2016

Staying at the Norumbega Inn was like staying in one of the mansions in Newport, only you are allowed to sit in the chairs and touch things. The breakfasts were lovely, and they took special care of my food allergies with delicious alternatives. The room was warm and comfy, with a working gas fire place. My husband and I were...

We were honored to be a part of your anniversary celebration, and are happy to know you felt comfortable in the grandeur of the house. Because it was a home for so long, we try to extend that feeling throughout instead of feeling like in a museum. We hope to see you again soon!

It looks like a castle as you approach by car, and then on foot, and as you enter and then climb the stairs. But once you're in your room it's a comfortable, luxurious environment, with all the modern amenities you could want. Of the three inns we stayed at while in Maine, Norumbega easily had the friendliest and most helpful...

It's not often you get exactly what you want but that is an understatement in trying to describe the care and attention and just plain friendliness of Susan and her crew at The Norumbega. From Jackie's warm welcome to our extraordinary "Tasting Dinner" and "Wine Pairing" with the "Cutlery Fairy" on Monday night, we couldn't have been happier. The Arundel...

We're so happy you came and stayed, dined and relaxed with us. Your travel journal is pretty extensive, so surpassing your expectations is a tall order. We're honored to have done so! Thank YOU for being a part of our family. As for the invite to visit down south, be careful what you wish for... tickets will be booked soon...

As a little girl I always was awed by Norumbega. Spending my wedding night there was nothing short of a dream come true. The rooms was perfect. The special dietary accommodations that were made for me were nothing short of amazing! We are planning to spend future anniversaries there as well!

We have driven by the Norumbega Inn on Route 1, just north of Camden, for more than 40 years and always wondered what it would be like to stay there. This September we had a chance to find out and the short of it was that it was wonderful. We had opted for a third floor turreted room facing the...

We were very pleased with the accommodations, the service, and the food. Chef Phil went above and beyond with the 7 course meal that he and his apprentice Drew presented. Sue and Jacquie were there throughout the weekend to make sure we were well taken care of and if we had any special requests, those too were handled quickly and...

My husband and I stayed here for a few days while visiting Camden. We had a huge room with a view of the water! The leaves were starting to turn and Camden lite up just like the "color bowl" it is!

It's certainly that time of year when the air has a nip and the colors are turning vibrant- a fall everyone imagines. Chef Phil loves serving our guests to show off the local produce, and we're glad you enjoyed it just as much. We hope to see you again next fall!

Please allow me to gush a bit... My wife and I were fortunate enough to hear that it was possible to have dinner at the Inn, even though we did not stay there yet. It was a 60th birthday celebration for me and my wife knows a friend of Sue's. So there you have an example of not what you...
