“Great Place to stay with our dog”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2014

We stayed at the Inn while visiting my mother in Rockland. Since few places allow dogs, we were pleased to find someplace as nice as the Old Granite Inn that did. The rooms are very clean and nicely decorated and the breakfasts were outstanding. Ed even invited my mother to come over and have breakfast with us. Since the weather wasn't great during our stay, we made use of the comfy common area at the Inn. I came back in March with my daughter and enjoyed another great stay.

My boyfriend and I adored the Old Granite Inn from the moment we arrived. Ed and Joan were delightful, the common rooms were beautifully furnished, and our room (#7) was immaculate, modern, stylish, and fun. We stayed for two nights-- and we really didn't want to leave. Breakfast was incredible: quiche, fresh fruit, local coffee, handmade muffins, delectable frittata... it was just too good. We will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms don't have private baths (it's a small inn) so make sure to check the room...

My wife and I live in South Florida and was so looking forward to our first trip to Maine and our first experience staying in a Bed and Breakfast. We flew into Portland and drove up to Rockland, it was such a nice drive. After arriving in Rockland we checked into the Old Granite Inn and was greeted by the Inn-keeper himself. He showed us to our room and took us on tour of the Inn. Our room was wonderful and absolutely beautifully decorated. It was clean and neat and the bed was comfortable. The lobby was interesting and inviting, a great place to relax, read or visit with the other guest. The Inn-keeper has a green thumb, and has displayed many of his house plants in the lobby. The dining room was spacious and accommodating. There was always coffee and cookies available to the guest. However, the breakfasts were to die for. The Inn-keeper prepared the breakfast each morning and oh my goodness!!!!! I will never forget the wonderful meals we enjoyed there but the Strawberry-Stuffed French Toast and Maine syrup was the best. The Inn is located in walking distance of downtown Rockland and all of the restaurants. We would highly recommend this place to any one traveling in the area.

Room Tip: Room five and six overlooks Rockland harbor and the ferry terminal

We spent 5 nights here as our base while we travelled up and down the coast. The rooms are clean and the breakfasts were amazing. The innkeeper was so personable and we learned a lot about the area just by spending time asking him questions. Loved that he gave us restaurant recommendations and pointed us in the direction of some great places to visit. This Inn should definitely be on your list of places to stay when visiting the coastal towns of Maine!

My husband and I recently stayed there while on vacation traveling through Maine. I wasn't sure what to expect at first glance, but loved it. The rooms were nice, clean and the innkeeper was very friendly. He gave us recommendations on things to do in town, as it was our first time there. The breakfast the next day was delicious. If I am ever in Rockland again, I will stay there again.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Old Granite Inn. The lobby is very inviting and the dining room is quite nice as well. The hotel is conveniently located near the ferry dock, the Farnsworth Museum, and downtown shops and restaurants. The most memorable part of our stay was BREAKFAST! Every evening a menu for the next morning was slipped under the door. There were outstanding homemade items each morning as well as fresh fruit and coffee. A great way to start the day!

Situated right across from the ferry docks, at the end of town, so it is walkable to all the stores and places to eat. What better place to be? Our room was nicely furnished, comfy bed, nice bathroom. The Inn was very clean. Breakfast was a spread. A menu was slid under our door the night before. There were about six choices on the menu. I assumed you had to make a choice. It was served buffet style, so you could sample every thing. And it was all delicious. Great place to stay when exploring the area, or for a early morning ferry.
