Elms B&B at Inns At Blackberry Common
One of Camden's most historic properties! Built in 1806 as a private home, this authentic New England Colonial is a fine example of preservation and restoration. Original wide board pine floors, interior shutters and original fireplaces maintain the homes integrity.
Guestrooms are each individually decorated and feature queen beds with custom linens and quality amenities. Private baths with showers and some also have a whirlpool or soaking tub. Rooms each have flat screen tv, free wifi and are air conditioned.
A comfortable guest parlor welcomes guests to gather and relax by the gas fireplace where there's always lively conversation, a good puzzle in progress and a guest pantry with goodies. During the summer months, guests enjoy a large outdoor garden patio area tucked away for a bit of quiet after a busy day!
Each morning guests enjoy a multi course gourmet breakfast served either on the patio or in the Blackberry dining room. Chef Jim creates a daily menu with the freshest of local and seasonal ingredients. Many of the herbs, vegetables and berries are from the gardens at the Inns. Special diets are never an issue and we welcome the opportunity to introduce our guests to the "farm to table" freshness that is a hallmark of our cuisine. Fresh roasted coffee and tea are available 24/7 and there is a "bottomless cookie jar" for snacking!
As a bit of history, innkeepers Cyndi and Jim, say “Our dream of 20 years was to own a bed and breakfast in Maine". Children educated and gone, Cyndi and Jim fulfilled that dream when they moved to Camden and bought Blackberry Inn in 1998. But there was more to come! Four years later, a new chapter began when the neighboring inn, The Elms, became available. It was the answer to “what’s next?” They became the proud new owners in 2003, and after extensive renovations, the Elms and the Blackberry were joined as The Inns at Blackberry Common, Camden’s garden inns.
