This Maine B&B is reshaping the tourism trade in the Mid Coast Maine area with green business practices and a positive message: that caring about the environment and being socially responsible can foster a healthy economy by attracting tourists that care about the planet. The Maine travel packages Windward House is featuring this season emphasize a Stay and Play Green theme. The Innkeepers have identified activities in the area that leave less of a carbon footprint and are happy to promote them. Guests can choose from scootering, biking, sailing, hiking, fishing for their dinner or just relaxing by a windmill. “Thanks to green businesses like the Camden Windward House and their peers, visitors to this area can create life-long memories and wonderful experiences while effortlessly acting as sensitive stewards of the environment," says Dan Bookham Executive Director, Penobscot Bay Chamber of Commerce.
One of the few inns in the historic district, this Camden Maine hotel is a Maine State Certified Green Leader in Hospitality. Windward House offers complimentary organic/local breakfast options (including vegan and gluten free), free wifi and afternoon snacks. Kristen Bifulco, Innkeeper at Windward House commented, “Guests are looking for more sustainable options when they travel. A guest told us that she likes that she could find a path from Windward House to other caring businesses. It is a pleasure to make packages that make being green on vacation easy and affordable. If people tell big travel sites like Trip Advisor to find me hotels in Camden Maine that are green, it will convince more lodgings to take green initiatives.”
