Location is everything. Rock Gardens sits at the end of a point overlooking Casco Bay. There are plenty of well-placed chairs and benches to enjoy the views. The gracious owners directed us to several interesting hiking trails nearby. Our comfortable cabin was spotless. The breakfasts and dinners were perfectly prepared and included local produce and seafood. We were lucky enough... More

We stayed here many years ago when our kids were in elem. school. The location is awesome, and the grounds and cottages are quaint, clean, and well maintained. Not fancy, just great Maine feeling to everything. I have stayed in some very nice 5 star hotels through the years, and while RGI is not in that category, the serenity and... More

We stayed here on the recommendation of an old friend and loved it. We had another couple join us and the cottage was quite comfortable. The views are spectacular and the grounds delightful. The location to hikes and walks and even shopping in Bath was perfect. Meals were fine. Not gourmet, but basic and ample. Not sure about vegetarian options,... More

Typical business trip and decided to search out an ocean view for the night. Googled Sebasco Estates and drove through that resort to the end of the point and wow I found a gem. Rock Garden Inn is a peace of heaven. Cottages right out of the sixties. The views are remarkable, heated pool and breakfast and dinner was great.... More

Rock Gardens Inn is beloved by people who come here every year. Indeed, like a well kept secret, we originally heard about it from people who have been coming here for many years. The grounds: The peninsula where it is located is a spectacular rocky coast. When the tide goes out it leaves behind tide pools for exploration. The inn... More

Just returned from a week's stay at Rock Gardens Inn and I can honestly say it is one of the most unique and beautiful places I have ever visited. Aside from the colorful and artful gardens that greet you as you arrive, the smell of the salt air is intoxicating. Every single spacial cottage is well appointed and has it's... More

Rock Gardens Inn is situated in one of the most beautiful spots in Maine and is truly one of those places where you can get away from it all and relax in an atmosphere of days gone by. The accommodations (single rooms or cottages with great views) are simple, comfortable and cozy. The owners and staff are very nice. I’ve... More

We have been going to the Rock Gardens Inn for over 10 years now, and just recently with our 2 year old. They are great with couples as well as families, and the staff is extremely accommodating. What I love about the RGI is the private and comfy cottages, some located only feet from the rocky ocean ledge, and all... More
