We stayed one night at Island View during our recent coast of Maine trip. I have to say the view is spectacular over the bay even though there was a large barge and crane in the bay when we were visiting. I was able to spot a bald eagle from the patio.
Rooms are nicely decorated and very spacious. Beds were very comfortable. Only complaint about room was bathtub was backed up. We had taken showers and tubs were slow to drain. Went to dinner came back and still had not drained. I borrowed plunger from front desk and plunged myself. All sorts of nasty stuff came out of drain when I did this. It was GROSS. Front desk never called to see how things worked out. I did mention issue when I checked out in the morning so they could call in plumber.
Walls/Floors are not very thick. I could hear the family above us all night as it sounded like they were playing on a WII all night bouncing around.
Island View is not a place to stay if you want to walk to your destination but it is nicely situated between Camden and Rockland. Short drives to either from Island View Inn.
I would stay here again just not overly happy about having to plunge my own tub and the funk that came with it. Sunrise view makes it worth every penny.
