I have been to Rockland numerous times and every time I've gone I have passed by the Limerock and thought to myself, "One day I would like to go there". And so this past trip my husband and I did. Economically we stayed in the cheapest room which is the Petit Mannan. It is also the smallest which didn't matter to us.
We like Bed and Breakfasts for a few reasons. We like getting a wonderful full breakfast, we like meeting new people including other guests or the owners, and we like the shared spaces. It obviously is also adults only, no kids.
When we arrived we were greeted by PJ and Frank who showed us around. They were very nice and very easy to talk to. There is a common area where there is a fridge, some complimentary snacks, water, a Keurig, and computer area. The front Palor and Living Room is very nice. There are things to read and some brochures on things to see in the area.
Our room was very cute. It is a wonderful Victorian home and the decor kept with the Victorian theme. There was a little sitting area and a very nice bathroom. There was also a pocket door between the bedroom area and the main entrance to the room and bathroom. This added extra noise proofing which is nice especially when your on the main floor. Despite it being the smallest room there was plenty of room for us and our large amounts of luggage and various items which we purchased. As stated there was even a sitting area for one person.
The grounds are very nice. There is a large front porch with many places to sit and a Gazebo in the back. The garden there is a typical Maine garden which is very beautiful
I almost forgot to mention the location. This was the first time we actually stayed in town. The Limerock is only two blocks from the town center. It was the best. We walked into town daily. Limerock is very close to all the shops, galleries, museums and restaurants Rockland has to offer. Parking in Rockland, although free, is not always easy to find.
The breakfast was always delicious each morning. Frank makes amazing baked goods.The first day we had fresh homemade croissants, fresh fruit with homemade whipped cream and an omelet with tomatos and other things I cannot recall. Second day was a blueberry parfait, cinnamon swirl french toast with bacon and the bread I could not recall. Third day was biscuits, which was the best of all three days bread options, and the best I have had. I was especially impressed since my biscuits do not taste anywhere close to as good. It started with fruit with yogurt and followed with an egg souffle with cheese and ham.
Through talking with Frank we heard about the Maine wine trail. He highly suggested Cellardoor which was a great winery (I reviewed this on Yelp). We told Frank that we mostly had shorter trips to Maine and that it is always food based. He said we should go to Primo (I reviewed this on Yelp).
