“Great view of Penobscot Bay”
Reviewed October 31, 2011

I stayed here 2 nights in late October. The people were friendly and helpful, the room neat as a pin, the view spectacular, with the balcony private and separated from those of the other rooms. The location is about halfway between Rockland and Rockport, right on the main drag, so quite convenient. Good coffee in the lobby first thing in the morning. Wireless internet worked well. My only complaint was the noise from the unit above me, as the insulation was poor. Perhaps next time, I'd get a top floor room in hopes of a bit more peace. But overall, I was quite pleased.

Out of our 3 week trip to New England, this was the most peaceful and pleasant place to stay. The rooms were very clean and nicely decorated. The view from the room overlooking the grounds and bay were just beautiful. They even had binoculars in the room to take advantage of it. The setting was so pleasant that we had a wine and lobster picnic on the grounds near the bay. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

Loved the decor of the room. very nice and clean. Rubber duck on tub was a cute touch! Grounds and path to water was nice and pool looked nice but it was too cold when we were there. Was a little disappointed in the fact that is was just coffee in the morning.. with all the other hotels in the area offering breakfast, I felt next time I would probably not stay there...

Great place to stay. Very quiet, peaceful, clean. Our room had a beautiful view of the water. After a day of rain the day before, Ms. Violet at the front desk told us she would send sunshine and she delivered, as the next day we had a beautiful sunny day! (not so sure she can change the weather on demand but we had a good laugh about it!) Front desk staff friendly, helpful. Enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay there again!

The place to go if you want peace and quiet. Scenic & picturesque with amazing views of the sun rising. Helpful and flexible staff who are knowledgeable about area attractions. Great restaurants and shopping center within a five-minute drive.

What an AWESOME place!! The views, the uniqueness of each room (no cookie cutter hotel rooms here) and most of all the people! Our room was clean, comfortable and the view was to die for. The employees were always friendly and helpful. And in keeping with what I hear about Maine-folks, we felt like a member of the family by the time we checked out! I met the owner, Dana and him Mom, Violet and was treated to a bit of history of area that I'm sure is unavailable in any tour book. The grounds were fantastic! So beautiful and well manicured. So close to downtown Rockport and Camden, alot to do in the area.We will for sure be back!

Room Tip: The view from the top floor was awesome. But I think the top floor rooms all have king size beds so...
