Kayak on Penobscot Bay, play a round at the world-class golf course, rent a bicycle and travel the rocky coastline or take a ferry to the artist colony on Monhegan Island. The Farnsworth Art museum hosts impressive works by American masters and highlights a collection of paintings by three generations of the Wyeth family as well as pieces by other outstanding Maine artists. All of these activities are even more enjoyable with the Inns famous gourmet lobster roll picnic basket. Come to Camden and stay a while!
