A short drive from our Camden Maine bed and breakfast is scenic Lake Megunticook. Think cold, crystal clear waters and numerous boulder islands rising up from the depths. Roll up your pants and dip in your feet – that will be enough to cool you on a hot Maine day. Then hop in a canoe or kayak and head out for a day of exploration and discovery. Be sure to bring a picnic, fishing poles, warm clothes, and your camera. If you are not experienced handling a canoe or kayak, please hug the shore as winds can rise suddenly out in Lake Megunticook, and that water is cold. Swimmers should paddle to adjacent Norton pond, which is usually quite warm in the summer months.
Camden Hills, Maiden Cliffs, and Mount Megunticook encircle Lake Megunticook. If you prefer to look at water from a distance rather than float upon it, nearby Camden State Park offers lovely views of Megunticook Lake and the surrounding area.
A day of hiking or kayaking is a perfect accompaniment to a culinary getaway at our Camden inn. Stimulate the appetite with a day of fresh air and activity and then spend the following afternoon in the kitchen with Chef Michael in private cooking classes. You will work side by side with the chef and help prepare dishes for dinner that evening in our Camden Maine restaurant. Although you are not obliged, we hope you will join us for dinner that evening, to taste the creations you help prepare.
