  • Introduction

    Whitehall, living room

    In the final stages of a complete renovation, this Camden Maine hotel reopens on May 10, 2015 as Midcoast Maine’s newest jewel! The re imagined look embraces the history of this iconic Camden inn, but also brings new focus on the natural beauty of Camden — the town where “the mountains meet the sea.”

    Whitehall is an ideal spring, summer, and early fall destination for those in search of an artisanal, authentic Maine experience. Our Camden hotel accommodations offer luxury linens and many amenities desired by the modern traveler. The property boasts rambling front porches and a patio perfect for enjoying a glass of wine or fresh lemonade, fire pits for late night hangouts, and a restaurant and bar complete with a charcuterie station and raw bar.

  • Pig + Poet Restaurant

    Chef Sam Talbot and Lark Hotels are thrilled to breathe new life into Whitehall by showcasing modern American cuisine at its finest and freshest. Pig + Poet, opening May 15, 2015, is Camden, Maine's newest gourmet restaurant. A collaborative venture, Pig + Poet celebrates thoughtful modern American food at its finest, and embraces Chef Sam Talbot’s focus on a simpler way of cooking.

    Featuring Maine’s farmland, fisheries and game, the restaurant will offer a raw bar, signature roast pork dishes, and much more. The “poet” in the name is a nod to the chef’s role in the creative process, as well as a subtle wink to Edna St. Vincent Millay, a Pulitzer-prize winning poet who was discovered at Whitehall Inn in 1912.

    Chef Talbot has worked in top NYC restaurants, and is a cookbook author and television personality. He was featured as a semi-finalist on season two of Bravo’s acclaimed series Top Chef, which included him becoming the viewers-choice “Fan Favorite” on the show. He was also featured in People Magazine’s 2012 “Sexiest Men Alive” issue. Diagnosed with juvenile diabetes at a young age, Sam has a profound understanding and appreciation for the intimate relationship between life and food, which has served as a driving force for his cooking style and recipes, which were the main focus of his cookbook titled The Sweet Life: Diabetes Without Boundaries.

    Sam is also the former Founding Executive Chef of the uber popular Surf Lodge in Montauk, NY and the Michelin-recommended Imperial No. Nine in New York City. While at the helm at the Surf Lodge, the restaurant garnered national acclaim as a premier dining destination in the Hamptons and was named one of the world’s 20 Sexiest Bars and Restaurants by The Travel Channel.
