If you hear a theme among these new hotels, it’s that everything is old and new, the same applies to the Norumbega Inn in Camden, Maine. Built in 1885, this inn was the home of Joseph Barker Stearns, who was known, among other things, for renovating the fire alarm and making the double telegraph. Stearns considered Camden the most beautiful place in the world with its views of Penobscot Bay. Fast forward nearly 140 years, and the building (which became a hotel in 1984) has been renovated and renovated by William Tims and Brett Haynie. The 11-room boutique hotel is minutes from two state parks and, for the winter visitor, a run at the Camden Snow Bowl.
