“Great stay at Ledges by the Bay!”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

I was looking for a peaceful get-a-way to relax for a few days and I ended up staying at Ledges by the Bay for three nights in mid-November. The reservation process was easy and simple, the woman who greeted me upon my arrival at check-in was upbeat and friendly and the accomodations were excellent!

Room Tip: I stayed in one of the ground-level Deluxe rooms and I'd recommend one of these to anyone! Acce...

This was our second stay at Ledges By the Bay and it won't be our last. We have stayed here after the "season" in late October each time, so we do miss the continental breakfast that is offered prior to the off season. However, there is a Keurig coffee maker in the room as well as refrigerator and small micro-wave, so fixing something quick for ourselves was very convenient.

The rooms and facilities here are kept very clean and the grounds are beautifully landscaped and manicured. I think some of the rooms have recently been redone and housekeeping is immaculate.

Ledges is conveniently located mid-way between the Rockland and Camden areas and close to everything one could want to see in mid-coast Maine. Additionally, the views from the rooms have wonderful vistas of the bay and ocean beyond. We enjoy watching the extreme tide changes.

Staff are helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. I would not hesitate to recommend 'Ledges' to friends who regularly travel to this part of Maine and you can be certain that we will plan to stay there on future trips.

Room Tip: We prefer to stay on the ground level, so that we have no upstairs neighbors.

The rooms have an amazing view over Penobscot Bay. The evening I stayed there, there's was amazing sunset over the bay. The rooms are very comfortable with excellent beds and linens. Front desk staff was helpful. Overall, an excellent experience.

This was our first trip to Maines coastal area. Our room here at 'Ledges by the Bay' was very clean & comfortable with lot's of room to move around and not be right on top of each other. The day we arrived the bay was covered in a deep fog that promised to be gone by the next morning & it was. We awoke to bright sunshine glistening off the water, it was beautiful. We had our own balcony which overlooked the bay and could watch the tides coming n and out, ships passing by out in the open water, sailboats moving to and fro. The hotel is easily located for the 'tommy tourist' n us and we were able to explore local areas, return to our room to freshen up and then go out for delicious fresh seafood dinners. There is a continental type breakfast served in the main house and each room had coffee pots and supplies. Since we have never been to this area so we had no idea about our room but it didn't disappoint in any way. We plan to return to Maine and we plan to return to Ledges by the bay.

This is truly a hidden gem. Large rooms all with a view of the ocean. Very clean, nice breakfast, personal service, and know the area. Front desk helped us out with both a drug store and restaurant with a map and concise directions. This is a family run operation that knows how to help there guests. I would stay with them again when I am in the area.

Room Tip: All the runs face the ocean.

We received a complimentary bottle of wine but no corkscrew to open the bottle. We arrived with a Seeing Eye dog which seemed to fluster the young woman at the reception desk. After several phone calls we were "allowed" to keep the room we had reserved. This was the first time this young woman checked in guests with a service dog so it was a learning experience for her.

The Ledges is the most charming place to stay! It is extremely clean, convenient, courteous and cozy! The customer service ( that would be Andi ) whom we have dealt with for years is an expert on hospitality customer service.
You won't be disappointed in anyway with the Ledges. And I have not mentioned the best part!
Well, actually there are two "best parts". The nightly rate is so very, very reasonable. But it is the view. The beautiful view!
Stephen and I love coming home to Room # 2 every chance we get!!
