Your Hosts - Terry and Annette Hazzard
As experienced innkeepers and natural-born hosts, Annette and Terry truly enjoy welcoming guests and helping them to get the most out of their visits to Camden. At the Blue Harbor House, they have created their unique style of Down East hospitality with a Scottish accent.
Terry and Annette met while working aboard the cruise ship "Pacific Princess" (which played the part of the "Loveboat" in the TV series). When the ship's itinerary brought them to the Maine coast, they vowed to return to this spectacular corner of the US. First, however, they went home to Scotland, married, and Terry became bar manager at the five-star Balmoral Hotel in Edinburgh. They subsequently purchased a six-room B&B in Edinburgh and, two years later, bought a small hotel, opening for business when their daughter, Jade, was just three weeks old! Now that they are the owners of the Blue Harbor House, they are living their dream of owning an inn on the beautiful coast of Maine.

Another alternate route is to continue on Route 295 and 95 to Gardiner (Route 126, Exit 51 ).
