“Peaceful comfortable rooms with beautyful view of Penobscot bay”
Reviewed 17 May 2010

We very much enjoyed our "chance" stay at Strawberry Hill, which ended up seeming more than coincidence for us. Traveling along the coast early in the season, visiting from St. Louis, we noticed the location of Strawberry Hill at dusk on our drive from MA. Pulling in we noticed the pleasant landscaping that included some not often seen night lights that we used to have in our home. While just off of Route 1, it was a quaint location by the shore of an inlet of Penobscot Bay, overlooking them from the room's view. The room, as the landscaping, well reflected the regional sights with a tasteful flair. The semi-private balcony provided a comfortable place, evening and morning, to enjoy the serenity, and even some local wildlife. In the morning, getting coffee, we were pleasantly surprised to meet "Pumpkin," of book fame. We're cat lovers and owners, where meeting and learning of Pumpkin's story at Strawberry Hill capped off our overnight stay with more than we were expecting. Our conversations and business with the staff were cordial and welcoming, we felt comfortable and relaxed, and enjoyed every aspect of our stay with the people and animals of Strawberry Hill :)

Many of our family members, and friends booked in for our daughter's wedding weekend. We were beautifully accommodated by friendly staff. Our rooms were neat,& clean. The lawn chairs on the patio looking out over the cove were the perfect touch for a moment or two of peaceful relaxation in a hectic weekend. The bird life/activity, & the beautiful gardens made us feel as though we were at a high class resort. We're going back as soon as possible ! Thank you !

3rd time here, 1st traveling for leisure with spouse. We could not have been more pleased. Pumpkin the cat met us at the door and escorted us to our room. The owner was gracious, accomodating and informative. Room was very clean and comfortable, great view (watch for the early morning ducks below the pool from November-April!). We had everything we needed and the price was great. We're already planning our next trip.

I spent 2 restful days at Strawberry Hill. This is a beautiful Inn, providing large rooms, expertly appointed and ALL with an ocean view. The ower does a very fine job on landscaping and maintaing the outdoor pool. All areas of the inn are expertly cared for and amazingly clean. I recommend this establishment for you next trip to the Rockland area.

Was well maintained from the outside...rooms are lavishly decorated down to a little rubber duckie in your bathroom. What a view and rooms are exceptionally clean. Even had the nicest lady on the front desk who I enjoyed chatting with so much. Highly recommend this hotel and we will be going back for sure.

This motel is spotless and comfortable, with beautiful landscaping. There are beautiful flowers on the grounds. The beautiful pool is out back and surrounded by lush green grass and flowers. A short walk past the pool takes you down to the ocean shore, where there are tables and chairs to sit in and enjoy the view. Off to the left is a beautiful mountain. The view from our 3rd floor balcony was wonderful. I wished I could have stayed there for days. The service was first rate. They even have a "famous" motel cat that has a book written about it - "The Strawberry Hill Cat." This is a great place to stop for a night or stay for a few days and relax. They also have free WiFi.

Friends of mine that was visiting from Canada stayed at this Inn for the weekned. I went over to pick them up and was truly amazed how beautiful their room was as well as the Inn's property.

The landscaping is beautiful and exceptionally maintained. They have a heated inground pool that has a view of the cove and nice landscaping surrounding it. You can walk down to the water and there are chairs/umbrellas if you would like to sit there for a while and relax.

The room was nicely decorated. King size bed with two wicker chairs, another chair with a table, small refrigerator, binoculars, TV, balcony overlooking the cove and very cozy. The end tables on each side of the bed had a bird house design on it and beautifully painted. Their room was located mid-level which had a balcony so you have a view of the pool/cove. The sink is separated from the bathroom so if you are trying to get done in the morning you won't be hogging up the bathroom. They were extremely happy with the room, service, location, view, etc. If I was visiting ME again I would definitely stay here.
