Stayed at the Island View Inn for the first time and will certainly return. From beginning to end it was wonderful. The staff was extremely pleasant and helpful. They directed us to local sights and great restaurants. The room was perfect. The bathroom was well sized. The view of Clam Cove was amazing. We sat on the deck for extended periods and saw a number Schooners go by. What a great time. We will be back.

Room Tip: It appeared that all the rooms are equally wonderful.

We tried to stay at Strawberry Hill, sister property, but since it was sold out, we went next door
to the Island View. This is one of the nicest places that I have stayed in, very comfortable, and perfectly decorated. The property is a real treat, and a delight to walk to the cove and beach.
It is close to Camden and Rockland and the Farmsworth Art Museum. The weather was great, and we would recommend this little gem to all.

Room Tip: We stayed in a suite, and loved it.

We just keep coming back. Comfy king beds, gorgeous view of the cove and bay beyond. Friendly staff, infinity-edge, heated pool. It just feels like home away from home. There is good reason the reviews are terrific: the island view inn is tops. We have turned several on to the place and, like us, they love it!

We stayed for three nights at Island View. It is a perfect spot to explore the lovely towns of Penobscot Bay. The setting is gorgeous and peaceful. We had a top floor room with balcony. Loved waking up each morning to a beautiful sunrise over Clam Cove and the cry of ocean birds. We were also fortunate to have great weather, clear skies, and a full moon the entire time we were there!

The grounds are well manicured but very natural. Fountains, paths, flowers, and seating areas are everywhere. The rooms are spacious and well decorated in a beach or nautical theme. The bathroom is very large and everything is clean. I have to say my favorite aspect of the inn was the incredible infinity pool. We spent some time each afternoon at the pool relaxing and enjoying the view. I believe that all of the hotel rooms have one king bed only so this is primarily an adult hotel. Even though every room was booked, it never felt crowded. We enjoyed the serenity.

My only suggestion for improvement would be to provide better coffee in the morning. It tasted like weak "church" coffee. A Keurig machine with k-cups would be a perfect addition. Check-in and check-out was smooth and friendly. The rates are reasonable. I would recommend this place to anyone looking to stay in the Camden/Rockport area!!

Room Tip: Top floor is best for views.

I tried to stay at the Island View Inn this year but waited to book my trip. I instead stayed at a sister property Strawberry Hill. I've been at the Island View several years running, two times each summer and have always found it extremely comfortable. The beds are high on my list of a good place, and the Island View uses high quality mattresses, with Swedish sleep system (pillow...foam topped.) It's well built, quiet, and has spectacular views straight out over clam cove. The heated pool next store is available for guests at Island View, and helps loosen sore muscles for the rest of my drive north. Overall is a great value, peaceful, and lovely.

Room Tip: Most of the rooms have great views, but there are a few that don't. Ask always for the view of the ocean.
