Fodor's Review

This welcoming B&B is the one of the most photographed pieces of real estate in Maine, and once you get a look at its castle-like facade, you'll understand why. With its gray stone walls, it looks like something out of a novel by Stephen King (a Maine resident, by the way). The place was built in 1886 by local businessman Joseph Stearns, who spent a year visiting the castles of Europe. Inside it's cheery and elegant, with many rooms warmed by their own fireplaces.

Innkeepers Sue Walser and Phil Crispo (a chef who has cooked for the British royal family) reopened the Norumbega Inn in 2013, giving the interiors a face-lift and updating the balconies that overlook the bay. It's on U.S. 1, just a little north of downtown Camden.
