Overview

The grounds of the historic Whitehall overlook one of Maine’s most picturesque bays from the base of Mount Battie. After more than a century welcoming guests to Camden’s coastline, the iconic inn joined Lark Hotels and recently underwent extensive renovations in early 2016.

Maintaining the white clapboard siding and wraparound porch of the original sea captain’s home, the property was redesigned with eye-popping fabrics, bold hues and modern amenities such as iPads and Apple TVs in guestrooms.

Every morning, guests are treated to a breakfast of Maine-inspired small plates. Outside, old-school entertainment awaits, including shuffleboard, cornhole and a backyard fire pit idyllic for summer nights.

Pig + Poet, the on-site restaurant, features a locally-sourced menu from chef Dirk Yeaton, who has served modern Maine cuisine for over 25 years. “Poet” is a nod to Edna St. Vincent Millay, the Pulitzer Prize winner discovered at a Whitehall reading in 1912.

During the hotel’s six-month season, visitors can explore Camden’s parks and wineries, hike Mount Battie, sail Penobscot Bay or tour the six lighthouses within an hour’s drive of the property.
