The Hartstone Inn, an enchanting hideaway in the heart of Camden village, is pleased to announce they recently earned the prestigious AAA Four Diamond rating for excellence for lodging and dining. For guests, the AAA Four Diamond rating affirms what guests visiting the inn already experience — unmatched service, accommodations, and amenities elegantly woven together to provide a sophisticated retreat and culinary destination.

Recognized as North America’s premier hotel rating program, the AAA Diamond system provides unbiased and reliable reviews to help travelers make informed lodging decisions. Overall, just 4 percent of the more than 31,000 AAA-rated lodgings and 2.8 percent of the 27,000 AAA rated restaurants were awarded the prestigious AAA Four Diamond designation this year.

From Quimper faience and luscious linens in the guest rooms to the world-class cuisine in the dining room and the collection of 400 live orchids in the common areas, Mary Jo and Michael Salmon get absolutely everything right says the Maine Explorers Guide. Each air conditioned guestroom combines carefully chosen furnishings and original artwork to create a mood of lavish comfort and romance.
