“Home Away From Home”
Reviewed 30 July 2011

We celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary in Maine, and for most of our trip stayed at Victorian By The Sea. The owners, Rob and Jeanne, are wonderful people. This beautiful place is nestled away from traffic, yet close to Camden's great restaurants, shopping, and port area. A very romatic place with beautiful gardens and a lovely bay view from the wrap around porch. Our room was lovely, spotlessly clean, and let me tell you that Jeanne has a gift for cooking the most delicious meals we have ever had anywhere. Breakfasts were heavenly, and we had everything we needed. It was like we were home, and at the end of our stay, it was difficult to leave.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Sunrise Room.

We just completed a 3 night stay at the Victorian by the Sea and had a fabulous experience. We utilized almost the entire B&B for a family reunion and although we didn't have it all to ourselves, there was one other couple in the last room, Jeanne and Rob made it feel like our home away from home. After this portion of our trip, we continued up into Canada and stayed at many other B&B's and no one compared to the beauty, value, and awesome breakfast of the Victorian by the Sea. We also had many several families with kids and the owners were very accommodating despite the issues that come up with traveling with a family. It was very concerning picking a B&B for an important event such as this using only the internet but we really scored with this one. Very beautiful, friendly, private once you close your door. You will love it.

We spent two nights here in early July. We drove from Boston in the morning—4 hours—and we were enjoying the Victorian by the Sea by early afternoon. The hosts greeted us and gave us great local tips. We have been to Maine many times, and we found this B & B as well as the location just outside of Camden to be ideal. It is convenient to restaurants and Camden harbor, but it is in a quiet setting off of Route 1 down a road toward Penobscot Bay.

We had excellent gourmet breakfasts. We slept well on very comfortable beds with comfy linens. Our room was spacious and overlooked the water. In spare moments, we read on the veranda.

We took a late afternoon sail on the Surprise Windjammer from Camden harbor, had dinner in Rockland, spent an afternoon at Christina Olson’s home (Andrew Wyeth subject) near Cushing and at the Farnsworth Art Museum in Rockland, among other high points.

Wonderful innkeepers, Rob and Jeanne! Thank you for a nice respite.

My wife and I stayed at the Victorian by the Sea for our first anniversary and it was a truly special experience. The innkeepers, Robert & Jeanne, were helpful and available, but never intrusive. The Inn is beautiful, comfortable, and immaculate. In a quiet cove on the Midcoast of Maine, if you want to stay in a quiet, beautiful place with spectacular views and terrific food, this is your spot. Spacious rooms, great breakfast, our every need was met - from help planning an anniversary dinner to reservations for a schooner cruise on Penobscot Bay.

This is the bed and breakfast experience at its best.

Because of the miles between the family, my nephew gave his aunts, uncle and his mom a Stash Tea Certificate that offered a "buy one get one" for overnight accommodations. The plan was for all of us to meet halfway for a visit. Well life got in the way, and the great idea didn't happen. Instead my husband and I were celebrating our 15th wedding anniversary, so we used the Stash Tea Certificate at the Victorian by the Sea. It was beautiful. It was romantic. It was perfect. We booked the Sawyer Suite. The view from our private balcony was very nice. The fireplace in our room was a prefect place to curl up in front of with a bottle of wine from a local winery. The rainy, chilly weather only added to the charm of the Inn. Each morning we were served the most wonderful breakfast. Jean and Robert are wonderful hosts and full of information on the area. We are definitely going back

We loved our one-night stay with Jeanne and Robert at their beautiful inn. It was for our 2nd yr anniversary and they were so kind to upgrade us to the suite!!! Thanks again for that! The room was beautiful with a view of the ocean from every window. The property is off the main road 1, down a dirt road away from the traffic. It is so quiet, we slept great. 4 minutes to Camden. Location was perfect but the breakfast and the innkeepers' attention and care is what really impressed us. They went out of their way for us! The breakfast was a real feast... fresh baked muffins, fruit salad, a delicious omelet (with some of the tastiest mushrooms ever), juice, etc. We will come back for another stay I hope.
