“Breakfast feast”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

We spent our anniversary weekend at this fine inn which is close to the Farnsworth Museum, and were pleasantly surprised by the gourmet feast prepared by Ed and Joan. Our meals were fantastic! Crab fritters, blueberry crepes, fresh fruit, excellent coffee - delicious.
The inn is super clean; we appreciate having no chemical or perfume smells in the room.
Comfortable, clean, convenient, yummy treats all presented by our gracious hosts who made us feel like old friends. This = wonderful!

Ed and Joan have done a wonderful job with this lovely B+B overlooking the ferry docks. The house is inviting and cozy, full of amenities. Especially loved the dining room and the breakfast served was excellent. Since there was just the two of us we could order anything we wanted and the blueberry pancakes with maple syrup hit the spot. Great coffee too. Our stay was short but wonderful and they allowed us to leave our car in their parking lot while we took the ferry to Vinalhaven for the day. Hopefully we can make another visit and stay longer and explore the area.

It seemed like our whole family descended on the quiet port town of Rockland for a family wedding and took over : ). The Old Granite Inn was a perfect fit. The rooms were clean, cozy and eclectic. Each one had unique personality and plenty of space. For me - the pluses - reasonable rates, hot, hot showers, parking, walking distance to everything, filling wonderful breakfasts, and the Innkeepers! They were so accommodating, friendly, informative and just plan caring. It really felt like staying with family (the ones you like : ). Wonderful! Even gave us scones for the long drive home. Does it get any better than that?

We arrived to a warm welcome and nice, clean rooms. The rooms were spacious and cozy. The food was awesome and filling. Our stay was so that we wished it were longer. There was much to see and visit in the area with local shops being so affordable. I was much impressed with the products being used at the inn. All were Eco-friendly and available at a nearby store. The food was wonderful and healthy fare.

We have stayed at the Granite Inn a few times this year. Ed and Joan are great hosts and very knowledgeable about the area. The rooms are very comfortable and clean. Breakfast is excellent.

Rather than the traditional old and stuffy Victorian stye furniture found in most inns, The Granite Inn is very nicely decorated in the mid-century modern style. You can enjoy a view of the harbor while reading the paper in the comfortable front lounge.

The location is very convenient and an easy walk to restaurants and galleries in Rockland.

Oh, where to begin...(1) Ed and Jane, friendliest innkeepers/chefs/decorators EVER (2) most comfortable and elegant rooms (3) a lot of hot water (4) view of the ferry right across the street (5) most reasonable off season rates (6) the lovely town of Rockland (7) all the places to dine in the lovely town of Rockland (8) all the funky shops in the lovely town of Rockland (9) concerts at the Strand Theatre ItLToR (10) The Sunday New York Times at the Old Granite Inn!

Room Tip: we had suite 2 - highly recommended, but the other downstairs room was equally fine-looking

We stayed at the Inn while visiting my mother in Rockland. Since few places allow dogs, we were pleased to find someplace as nice as the Old Granite Inn that did. The rooms are very clean and nicely decorated and the breakfasts were outstanding. Ed even invited my mother to come over and have breakfast with us. Since the weather wasn't great during our stay, we made use of the comfy common area at the Inn. I came back in March with my daughter and enjoyed another great stay.
