Being from Arizona we were looking for a place with a view of the water. We found it here at the Inn. First Class property and would recommend highly. The rooms are fantastic-good size and outstanding decor. The bathroom was ideal with plenty of counter space. The private balcony is ideal for cocktails with a view.
The staff is extremely helpful and pleasant. We thought the cost of the room was a bargain for what it offered. The entire property is manicured for your enjoyment.
Hopefully we will get back some day.

Actually we hated to leave.

Great find on the Maine coast. Rooms were immaculate. Staff was friendly. Grounds and view were fantastic. Rooms came with binoculars to watch the sailboats go by. Hidden pool area was quiet and amazing with an infinity view of the water and a waterfall into the heated water. Above average coast for area, but worth it. Will go back.

This is not your run of the mill cookie cutter hotel. All of the rooms our tastefully decorated like a magazine. A couple of the rooms have fireplaces and all had a beautiful view of the water.
All of the rooms have binoculars in them we even saw a fox.The only negative thing I can say is the beds our kind of hard. It is a short drive to Camden(a very scenic seaside town) Make sure you eat breakfast at the Mariner restaurant great deal and great blueberry pancakes. Room 107 is the best.

When you book a place sight unseen there is always some concern about just what you'll be getting. Have no fear; the Island View Inn scores big on all fronts. It's a small, family run operation with only about 14 units, each with its own spectacular view of a lovely cove. We watched the sun come up on a spacious balcony that offered plenty of room to stretch. We bought lunch at the Three Dog Deli up Route 1 and enjoyed it just steps from the cove relaxing in Adirondack chairs under a wide umbrella. In the afternoon we hit the heated, infinity-edged swimming pool and had it all to ourselves. The rooms are brightly painted, spacious and feature king beds and coffee in the morning topped off our stay.
The Island View Inn is only about four years old and is extremely clean and well cared for. It's obvious the owner takes pride in his property.
It was our first trip to the Rockport-Camden area, but it won't be our last. We look forward to our next stay at the Island View Inn.

We stayed here for 2 nights the end of September and loved it. The whole property was clean and made us think it was brand new. The views were exceptional, and the walkway to the chairs by the water made it special. We enjoyed our large balcony even when it rained a bit- it was all very private and relaxing. Great location near many things to see including a great fall foliage drive. We would definitely recommend this place and stay here again.

The room we stayed in looked new, never used. It smelled fresh and the bedding was soft and snuggly. The bathroom was spotless, the cleanest we've ever seen. The view of the water was great. They had binoculars (nice ones) in the room to use to watch the sailboats go by. The balcony was very private. This was a great experience!! We loved it.

We flew to Maine on the spur of the moment without a reservation to get away from the heat for a few days. We looked at half a dozen properties (believe it or not, they all had vacancies) and were very happy to find this one. It's fairly new, with very well-maintained grounds and a heated pool. Our room was decorated like something out of House and Garden in a nautical theme with a cathedral ceiling and multi-colored walls. The bed was a 4 poster with a quilt and the bathroom was quite large. There was a balcony with a beautiful view of a small bay - in fact, the first night, we went to the store and got some provisions and stayed right there, enjoying the scenery and serenity. There's a small refrigerator, which was convenient for keeping a few things. The owner and front desk personnel were very helpful in providing directions and other information. We'll definitely be back!
