“Quiet place to stay and relax”
Reviewed 12 August 2013

We found Waterman on a couple of sites, and although it didn't have many reviews, decided to try it out for a two night stay after a 4 day cruise on a Maine Windjammer.
The Inn doesn't have a sign out front, so we wound up comparing the house to the picture we had and deciding it was the right one.
The mother-daughter owners are friendly and welcoming. The house is a restored Victorian and beautiful and the gardens are lovely. A wrap-around porch has room to relax. Our room upstairs was light and bright. No phone, no TV (which was great with us). Queen size bed and attached private bath. Additional seating in the room made it easy to read, change shoes, etc.
We also had use of the sitting room and library downstairs, which we took advantage of in the evening.
Breakfast was fresh fruit and a fresh baked item. I would have loved some protein for breakfast, but this was fine. Coffee and tea were also hot and plentiful.
We had a key to the house and could come and go at will.
They only use two of the bedrooms for guests as they live in part of the house and also have boarders.
Easy walk to town, shops, attractions, and restaurants.
Parking is on-site and there's plenty of room.
Overall, an excellent place to stay.

My husband and I had a great stay at the waterman house! It was perfect from start to finish, the room was so comfortable with the roomy shared bath right down the hall, short walk to downtown rockland for the blues festival. Rockland harbor was so beautiful and the main street is full of great little places to shop and eat! I cannot wait to go back next year!

We enjoyed our stay at Waterman House with our young kids. The house is well-appointed and lovely. Great places to curl up in with a book. Short walk to Main Street cafes and the owners were knowledgeable about area sights to see with our children. I recommend this place to folks looking for an informal, clean, friendly and comfortable place to stay in the midcoast.

The B & B is close to the action, in the middle of a great water town, lobsters, light houses, rock walls and galleries. The gardens were lovely and I actually had some tomatoes from them. Breakfast is served overlooking this garden. The owners know the area well and were very helpful directing me to interesting sites. My friends recommended this place to me and I'm glad they did.

The price - $100/night - was right so we took a chance.
Big mistake.
When we arrived, we were greeted be a real estate agent showing our room to a lovely family of 5.
The room was not clean - hairs in the shower, cobwebs under the dresser, gum in the trash can.
The owner gave us wrong information about a local hike. Which turn out well anyway, but still.
We considered switching and even stopped in at a few places. The Ripple looked great but they were full.
