Abigail’s Inn was completed in 1849 and sits in the historic district of Camden. Our home has a rich and storied history with several notable prior owners, including the Honorable E.K. Smart, a U.S. Congressman, who delivered several important speeches in defense of the North against the charge of aggression upon the South. In the 1870s the house was purchased by William Alden, a Mayflower descendent of John Alden, who added the broad pillared porch and the first bathroom in Camden. And in the mid-1900s, the home was owned by the Jason and Peggy Westerfield. Peggy become well-known in famous fine-art museums and a number of leading fabric houses for her collections of 18th and 19th century antiques, costumes and fabrics and was even featured in a Life magazine article.
Our guest rooms are spacious with private baths, televisions, air conditioning, comfortable reading chairs, and WiFi access. We serve a delicious breakfast each morning and have cold and warm beverages available throughout the day. Our parlors are quite large with cozy couches and fireplaces. The front porch is a wonderful place to kick up your feet after a day of sightseeing, and our new stone patio is a great place to enjoy your breakfast, an afternoon beverage or simply soak up the sun. We encourage our guests to enjoy all of our common areas. We are a close walk to the center of town so you can arrive and park your car and not have to drive anywhere if you so choose.
For breakfast we serve tried and true family and guest favorites sourcing local produce, seafood and meats. We have guest seating both indoors and out, and we accommodate guests with food restrictions.
