The only things lacking were a microwave and in-room coffee facilities. Otherwise this was the perfect get-away. Fabulous views. Excellent location. Beautiful, very clean, room. Excellent staff. We went out of season so the pool was closed. Not sure what the noise levels would have been like when the hotel was full. This is definitely somewhere we will re-visit.

Beautiful boutique hotel just outside of downtown Camden. Got away for a couples vacation in late summer/early fall. Lovely room with nautical theme, a nice grassy hill you can walk down, adirondack chairs at the bottom where you can enjoy the lovely view. There is a pool that looked nice at the top of the hill, but it was too... More

The room was very comfortable - like walking into my living room (only better), very soothing & beautiful with wonderful lighting & decor. The grounds were equally beautiful! The hotel is perched on the top of a hill that sweeps down to the ocean with unobstructed views from the room & deck. Wildflowers & a grass path lead to the... More

I live in Maine and I never tire of exploring all it has to offer. My friend and I spontaneously decided to venture to the Mid-Coast area on a stormy weekend, hoping the weather would clear for the last car show at the Transportation Museum in Owl's Head. We found this charming inn at the last minute while surfing the... More

We recently had the privilege of spending 5 days at this beautiful property. The rooms and the grounds are impeccably cared for and the staff is accommodating and friendly. Each room has a nautical feel and decorated tastefully and thoughtfully. Binoculars are provided in each room so you can enjoy the beautiful scenery. The Inn is set back from the... More

We had never stayed in the Rockport area, and decided to give it a try. Many choices, but wanted a more quaint, quiet place to stay. We had one of the suites, which was actually a house down the road from the actual Inn. It was a two story house on a nice little street. We had the ground floor... More

The room was spacious, quiet and clean. The bed was very comfortable. The view from our room, overlooking the water was beautiful! The staff was friendly and helpful. We would highly recommend staying here!

The service provided is insulting to most other small hotels that reply to emails and have excellent customer service. We always stay at small hotels but never this one. Again thanks for driving us elsewhere Booked via the phone and cancelled IMMEDIATELY. Grumpy reservation agent would not waive a $20 charge based on principal "visa charges us $12 (8%) for... More

The island view lived up to its reputation for outstanding views of the bay and islands. Our 2nd floor room in the main building was spacious and immaculate. The walk down the hill to waterside was a nice stroll along the well-tended hillside path.

I have stayed a lot of places in this area and these people are by far the friendliest !!! They went out of their way to accommodate me when I didn't have a place to stay a night before a wedding I was in because an inn in Camden messed up my reservation. The place they gave us was gorgeous... More
