The Blue Harbor House warmed by Scots

CAMDEN — The Blue Harbor House, an elegant but warm and friendly bed-and-breakfast, is just a five-minute walk from Camden’s harbor and quaint downtown area. Eleven comfortable guest rooms or suites decorated in traditional coastal style, some with skylights, offer various configurations suitable for family vacations or a romantic getaway for two. The 1810 inn is owned and run by two Scottish expats, Terry and Annette Hazzard, who love extolling the virtues of their town and offering recommendations for places to eat and things to do. Rocking chairs on the covered porch provide the perfect place to sit and people watch, and in the late afternoon, tea and home-baked treats are offered in the airy sunroom. Annette’s two-course gourmet breakfasts are one of the inn’s big pluses. On our visit, fluffy Maine blueberry pancakes with sausage were preceded by a first course of poached pear with berries and vanilla cream. The next day she served savory Eggs Florentine (pictured above), and with advance notice, she is happy to accommodate special dietary requests. Amenities include air conditioning, cable TV, DVD, private baths, and Wi-Fi, though it can be tricky to stay connected at times. Rates from $125-$199 double occupancy, though some suites can fit three ($30 extra). Ask about packages and specials.
