Hartstone Inn & Hideaway in Camden, ME

Maine cooking class

The innkeepers consider their Diamond Collection inn a culinary destination, and we agree. Sign up to be a “chef for a day” for a one-on-one cooking class with their expert chef. You can request a focus on certain types of cuisine, and your efforts will be used for that night’s dinner. Group cooking classes are also available to help you become versed in various regional, ethnic, and seasonal food. Your fresh breakfast incorporates local ingredients such as berries and lobster. Stay in for dinner and eat at the award-winning restaurant, which “infuses New England fare with an international flair” and features a massive wine list. The innkeepers also offer gourmet picnic basket adventures. Choose your picnic lunch, which ranges from Maine lobster to traditional fruit and potato salad. Select what adventure you want to take for your picnic, ranging from a lighthouse tour to a kayaking tour to a picnic overlooking Penobscot Bay. The innkeepers love to arrange tours for guests at the nearby Cellardoor Winery or send them to a nearby farm to take one-on-one cheese-making classes. For the ultimate foodie vacation, join the innkeepers/chefs for an annual culinary tour throughout Italy and France.
