“"Highly recommended!"”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

What a great place to stay! Beautiful view, comfortable beds, lovely grounds, nice breakfast and all at a very affordable price. The location, between Rockland and Camden, is very convenient for sightseeing on Midcoast Maine, but one of the loveliest views was right off our private deck. We stayed in the cottage and had the convenience of a kitchen, dining room and living room and two bedrooms, as well as a gas grill on the deck. Perfect for a family!

Clean and comfortable with a beautiful view. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Very nice breakfast included. Great central location for touring around. When we arrived, we were informed that they were upgrading us to a larger room at no extra charge, since the guest in our booked room smoked, and they had to air the place out.

Room Tip: If you are looking for a place for a fantastic lobster dinner, check out the Lobsterman in Rockland...

It's hard to imagine a nicer place. Nice breakfast and central to Rockport and Camden. Good advice from the staff on where to eat and tour. Very clean rooms and very comfortable. We stayed 5 days with different exploring each day. This was my retirement incentive for my wife. We came from Minnesota.

Room Tip: We had one of the smaller rooms but it was very comfortable with a balcony and great views. The room...

We stayed in a room in the motel in May and knew we wanted to come back in the fall. This time we lucked out to get a reservation for the coveside retreat (all the hotels in the area, including this place, get booked up fast around leaf peeping time). The retreat is a 2br 1.5 bath little house with a deck, grill, full kitchen and living room. We loved it as soon as we got inside. It's not modern as far as the decor and there's a fair number of imperfections (foggy window, chipped sink, peeling wallpaper that looks likey grandma's house) so don't expect anything fancy but have you seen the price?? The views?? Amazing! We loved that the beds and couches were super comfy and looked new, as did the kitchen table, there's a nice flat screen tv, having the kitchen was awesome, and we spent a ton of time on the private deck with table & umbrella, just gazing out over the water. So relaxing. Easy 10-15 min drive to either Rockland or Camden makes it the perfect location. The property has a huge lawn with chairs to sit and enjoy the view and a little staircase down to the water. The retreat has more road noise than some of the rooms just because of the location but we didn't mind at all. Breakfast is from 7-10 am and was a good continental breakfast. As before, we were very hapoy with our stay!

The views from the room were great. Rooms were clean and comfortable. The breakfast with coffee and homemade rolls,donuts and pastry are GREAT. My with and i came in just as they were putting out fresh warm blueberry muffins. This is a GREAT value.

Room Tip: Rooms in front facing the bay have great views. Rooms are very clean and good size.

This is a very nice place. Wonderful views; right on the water; (very) close to Route 1. Very ample breakfast. Staff are friendly and responsive. The two separate apartments are a good value--living room, dining room, kitchen, and two bedrooms. Strongly recommend.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Ledges! The room was large, clean and well-appointed with a microwave, Keurig coffeemaker and large TV. The king-sized bed was so comfortable! The homemade scones are "a must" for breakfast! Everyone who works there was pleasant and informative as to where to eat, what to see, etc. We stayed on the second floor and the view was amazing!! We would not hesitate to stay here again on future fall vacations!!

Room Tip: We loved the room on the second floor but any room seems to have great views.
