We arrived in time to check in and unload as we were running late for the movies. We were very pleased at how homey it felt at the ledges. There was a personal touch to every piece of furniture in our room and it was immaculate!! My wife told me to make sure I took pictures of the lamps and the drapes because they were so adorable. The view was spectacular and it was very nice to have a balcony. We would definitely recommend the Ledges!

At half the price of any of the other places we stayed on our New England holiday ($99 per night) we were expecting this place to be pretty basic, especially having the "Motel" tag. We couldn't have been more wrong.
The location was fantastic with an unbroken view from the bedroom window and the balcony of open fields, trees and the sweeping bay beyond. The room was huge and full of little touches that showed all the signs of a well managed establishment. Things like a large coal effect fire in one corner, nice pictures on the walls and scratch built models of sailing yachts on the shelves. Everything was spotlessly clean. Although it's on the main road there was no traffic noise and the reception staff were friendly and efficient. There are very large grounds and even a rocky shore to wander roun and sunbath on.

Our stay was only 2 nights but we would happily have stayed much longer as the neighbouring towns of Rockport, Campden and Rockland (not walkable) are delightful with lots of nice restaurants.

Room Tip: There seem to be a few rooms without a sea view so best to ask specifically.

We arrived late and there was an envelope on the door containing our key and room number. We had a great view of the cove/bay. Our room was quite comfortable. I loved the electric remote controlled fireplace. It was very quiet and we could not hear anyone else. Our balcony was very private and the sunrises were beautiful. The refrigerator/freezer was very large. We were going to possibly stay an extra night and the staff put a temporary hold on our room for that night until we decided! There was a Keurig in the room with regular and decaf coffee which thrilled my husband...but I'm a tea drinker. The only improvements I would make to make our stay perfect was to have wider and easier-to-open curtains to the sliding door of the balcony and the addition of a microwave. There is access to the rocky shoreline via a stairway. Ledges is easy to find and very convenient being on Rt. 1 and it's tucked between downtown Rockland and Camden. It was definitely one of the best accommodations we have had in a long time! We stayed the last full week of October so we were unable to enjoy the pool but we did enjoy off-season rates. I would definitely stay at Ledges again and I would not hesitate in recommending it to anyone!!

Ledges is conveniently situated between Rockland and Rockport/Camden. It has a view of the bay which can be walked down to. The facility is fairly nice, but dated. It is a little bit difficult pulling onto Highway 1 but do-able. The hotel clerk was friendly and helpful. Too bad that no continental breakfast was available.

We arrived here tired & hungry & were pleasantly surprised by the accommodation afforded us. Our unit was rather like a mini home with full housekeeping privileges designed for a longer stay. Unfortunately we were there for only one night. The setting was spectacular overlooking the Penobscot Bay. Very comfortable & clean.

We just finished 4 nights at the Ledges and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location is perfect being directly on Penobscot Bay. Our first day I walked down to the waters edge, amongst the Fall color and saw the tide going out. The decorating in the room is a bit dated but coming with a fridge, freezer, microwave and Keurig coffee maker we were set well. The room was clean and well kept with helpful staff. Also, Rockport was a great location between Camden and Rockland. Thank you Ledges!

Room Tip: 2nd floor has better views.
