Sustainability at Our Hotel Near Camden, Maine

"We wake up everyday and get to enjoy the amazing beauty of the Maine coastline and the Atlantic Ocean. It’s a truly remarkable gift that we do not take for granted. Since taking over the Inn at the beginning of 2019, we have made it our mission to make our hotel near Camden, Maine a model of how to run a business in a sustainable, environmentally-conscious way. We’re always working on improving these efforts, but below is a list of changes that we have implemented to reduce our impact on our environment." Lauren and Greg Soutiea

Environmentally Focused

From the free electric vehicle charging station to luxury Brooklinen and Comphy 100% cotton sheets and towels, you will find our top priorities are our guests’ comfort and reducing our environmental impact. In all of our bathrooms, you’ll find amazing William ROAM amenities, that are completely free of animal testing and dispensed out of multi-use pump containers to avoid disposing of thousands of small plastic bottles each year.

In addition to serving delicious seafood, our Maine restaurant menus feature vegetarian and vegan meal choices. We also source from local vendors whenever possible, which supports the local economy and reduces our carbon footprint in the transport of goods from around the world. Our #1 priority is to ensure you have an amazing getaway, and we are always looking for ways to make that happen in a more sustainable way.

Free electric vehicle charging station (ChargePoint) for guests and visitors to use while in the area, so drive on over and charge up while dining or staying with us at the Inn.
