Reviewed 12 June 2012

We booked this B&B on the basis of Tripadvisor reviews and we were not disappointed. The house itself is a classic example of Maine architecture. Frank and PJ have lovingly cared for the property and sitting on the porch of an evening is delightful.

We stayed in the Fox Island room which was very comfortable, good size and it was wonderful to sleep with all four windows open instead of having air conditioned rooms. Frank and PJ's attention to detail is great, nice bedlinen, towels, toiletries etc.

There is also a small kitchen downstairs should one wish to make a cup of tea/coffee etc with nibbles also availAble and soft drinks in the fridge. Free WIFI and a desktop computer for guest use.

Frank and PJ also are very knowledgeable about the local area and restaurants. We would strongly recommend this establishment.

Room Tip: The Turret Room looked amazing!

Just returned from excellent stay at Limerock Inn. What made this one of our best inn experiences was not only our beautiful room, excellent location & lovely public areas, but the genuine hospitality of the hosts, PJ & Frank. They made you feel welcome and were friendly but never intrusive. This was our first time in Rockland & we will return again, just to stay at this exceptional inn.

Great hospitality in a beautiful setting. Hosts Frank and PJ are a wealth of information. Perfect location for touring up and down the coast. Rockland is a wonderful town with many eateries to choose from, art, museums, and fabulous shops. If you want a comfortable place to stay, this is it!

Room Tip: Careful of the east side in summer -sun comes up VERY early

Having stayed at many B&Bs throughout New England, I can say with confidence that the Limerock Inn is the best. Ever since staying here, all other B&Bs just don't measure up. Frank and PJ are the most genuine, welcoming hosts you could ever want. The Inn is stunning down to the finest detail. Even a year later, we were still talking about Frank's breakfast. The Inn is nicely located on a quiet street and close to the local attractions. Frank offered us many great suggestions for restaurants and activities. The owners are truly passionate about what they do and it shows in every beautiful detail. We cannot wait for our next visit.

These guys run the cleanest, friendliest, prettiest inn in Rockland. Breakfast isn't to be missed. Frank and P.J. really care about their guests. I have stayed in the smallest room which i love. It is my home away from home.
Thanks guys for caring so much.
See you this summer

The Limerock Inn is the bed and breakfast to go to for ultimate luxury. The attention to detail is unbelievable! When we arrived, we were cordially greeted by Frank. He gave us a tour and then upgraded our room for the same price, which is unheard of in all of our traveling days. All rooms are gorgeous so an upgrade was not necessary though very much appreciated. Snacks, bottled water, soda and coffee are available any time of the day. There is a computer, printer and wi- fi, so those who need to be connected have the access.

The Inn is 2 minutes from downtown yet in a neighborhood of green lawns and large houses.The Farnsworth Museum, galleries, shops, restaurants and an ocean boardwalk is just minutes away.
A short drive brings you to other local attractions. We went to Rockland Lighthouse which is at the end of a long jetty, and also Owls Head Lighthouse which is at the end of a short path and has a great view.

The inn breakfast is fabulous and filling. We had coffee, juice, delicous homemade lemon muffins, eggs and sausage. Frank is a great morning conversationalist. There is some professional photography by P.J. displayed on the wall outside the kitchen. A visitor can see Frank and P.J. love what they do and are very good at it. We left with a couple parting gifts, sample bottles of local artisan olive oil and vinegar from Fiore (located downtown) and a "green" Historic Inns of Rockland bag to keep us green. 

We have never stayed at the same place twice...........I am now thinking we may break that rule after staying at the Limerock Inn.

Plus: Old victorian exterior and some retained victorian characteristics inside.
Negatives: My room was the turret room and it was unfinished with the floor unfinished with splatters of paint. Tub had hair from previous guest(s). When I called this to owner's attention it still was not cleaned properly. On a noisy street with a lot of traffic. Not much to see or do nearby. Breakfast mediocre.
Summary: Apart from the Owls Head Transport museum which can be seen in a few hours and is well worth a visit this town is dead. I always wanted to spend a night in a turret room of an old victorian but this is not the place try it. Rooms are way overpriced for the level of finish the house currently exists in and sorry but I hold cleanliness as the uncrossable red line. Try elsewhere.

Room Tip: Might be quieter in the back of the house but why are you really staying in this town at all?

rpjwalter, Owner at LimeRock Inn, responded to this reviewResponded 25 April 2012

At LimeRock Inn, we seek to consistently exceed our customer’s expectations. So, it is disappointing when we receive feedback that we failed. We take pride in operating with no outside staff. Thus, we take full responsibility for our shortcomings as an owner-operator facility.

As to the issue in the bathroom, this particular guest room has two bath fixtures (a claw foot tub and separate oversized shower). When the issue of a stray hair was presented to us as being in the tub, we cleaned it. In hindsight, we may have cleaned the wrong fixture. For this, we apologize.

While the floor in the Turret room may not have been to this customer’s liking, it is (in fact) an original architectural feature which we’ve chosen to leave intact. During the Victorian era, rooms were often finished with wood floors and area rugs. It was commonplace for owners to finish exposed wood in a higher grade leaving the center of the room with rough, unfinished wood.

We have purposely positioned the area rugs in this room to leave a small portion of the unfinished floor exposed. If it was not to the satisfaction of our customer, we’re sorry. But, we feel this bit of quirky is both preserving history and informative about daily life 100 years ago.

In 2009, Rockland was named “Editor’s Choice” and came in second place in an online poll for Budget Travel’s “Coolest Small Towns in America” contest. In 2010, Rockland was named one of 12 Distinctive Destinations by the National Trust for Historic Preservation for its authentic and thriving downtown. Anchored by The Farnsworth Museum, Maine Lighthouse Museum, and the 2012 addition of Maine Coastal Islands National Wildlife Refuge Visitors Center, Rockland is a vibrant New England coastal city located on Penobscot Bay, home to the world’s largest historic schooner fleet.

We welcome all feedback from guests. As we often say, we want to hear the good and need to hear the “not so good”. Our only regret is that the guest did not bring these issues to our attention in the moment as to alleviate them at that time.
