“Wow!Gorgeous views, immaculate, beautiful decor!”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

This has to be the cleanest room we have ever stayed in! This Inn looks like a motel from the outside but the rooms are gorgeous! Absolutely loved the decor, great colors, and attention to detail. Room was large with private balcony and sweeping views to the Penobscot. Set back and down a knoll from Rt. 1 so you can't see the road for of the Inn. Beautiful infinity pool. Loved this Inn! These owners have done it up right and employees are friendly and helpful. We travel a lot and this Inn is a hidden gem.

We stayed at the Island View Inn on our way to Acadia. The room overlooked the ocean and the view was spectacular. We had drinks by the waters edge and watched ospreys dive to catch their dinner. The location of the Inn is great - between Camden and Rockland you have the choice of dozens of fantastic restaurants. The room was impeccably clean and the bed was super comfortable. We would suggest a swim in the infinity pool during your stay. There is no restaurant on the premises so you should plan accordingly.

Room Tip: Try to get a room with the bed facing the water so you can always see the ocean.

We stayed here based on reviews from Tripadvisor. Boy am I glad we did! We stayed in a second floor room with water views. I never wanted to leave. It was so peaceful there. We stayed for two nights and slept both nights with our slider and windows open. It was so quiet. The room was very nicely decorated and had everything you would need. The pool was a special treat! I had never been in an infinity pool. The water was heated which was an added bonus! I plan to be visiting again before summer is out.

Room Tip: Second floor rooms have a great view!

Based on TRIPADVISOR reviews, I selected this inn for Memorial Day Weekend. LOVED so much about our experience!

PROS
1, THE VIEWS from our room BLEW ME AWAY. Instantly felt relaxed just by stepping onto the private balcony
2. MODERN ROOMS - our particular room was recently updated, and impeccably clean
3. LOCATION - with a car, we easily explored the area. One day was Rockport, Camden, and a leisurely route North stopping in every seaside village. Another day we took the ferry from Port Clyde to Monhegan Island and hiked throughout - FABULOUS

CONS
1. NO BREAKFAST included. There are little breakfast places nearby, it's just something to note.
2. POOL WAS CLOSED (understandably, it was cold over Memorial Day) but that was not the expectation set by the reservations agent. Not a huge deal, but I think for future the reservations agent should AVOID making a promise and not be afraid to say "NOT SURE if the pool will be open or not" just to better manage customer expectations.

We stayed here during our two-week Maine adventure, and it was by far our favorite of all the places we stayed! The inn and grounds were simply gorgeous, and the view was breathtaking. Everything was immaculate and comfortable. The staff at the desk gave us great recommendations for things to do and places to eat. We also appreciated the morning coffee in the lobby! The Island View Inn is very conveniently located pretty much in the middle of Rockland, Rockport, and Camden, which made it really easy to get to the places we wanted to visit. We hope to be able to stay here again in the very near future!

Exceeded our expectations in every way! Our 2nd floor room was well appointed, clean and large. And the view from the balcony was amazing. Be sure to walk down to the water's edge to explore - especially during low tide. Bring your camera. Simply the best of what Maine has to offer and at a very reasonable price! Already looking forward to a return trip!
