The view from our room was spectacular. Easy access to Rockport, Rockland and Camden. They gave us great recommendations for places to eat and we visited many of them and agreed with every one. The room was very nicely decorated and had lots of room. Very relaxing. We plan to visit again!

Room Tip: All the rooms had spectacular views of the bay. If you are unable to climb stair opt for a lower le...

We needed a place to stay in Rockport, and found this location online. The room was clean, comfortable and what a view! The small balcony looked out over an inlet with a few boats in the harbor, birds flitting by, and a resident groundhog/gopher wandering the property. So clean, quaint....not overly frilly like some places, more of a seaside cottage feel that was very pleasing. If we need to stay in Rockport again, we would stay here.

Attractive, pleasing, totally up to date decor. Super comfortable. Immaculately clean. Doesnt feel commercial.nWe're seasoned, frequent travelers staying in alot of hotels. This is one of the nicest accommodations I've had in some time. Not one negative thing to say. The property is conveniently located with easy parking. We had a beautiful view, nice balcony porch, really comfortable bed with high quality bedding. Friendly, helpful staff. Nice coffee in the morning. They obviously take pride in the property and comfort of their guests. Great value!

Room Tip: We loved the water view with the balcony.

We stayed here for Memorial Day weekend. Great place - reasonable rates, super clean room, amazing views (especially from 2nd floor room!). Up on a hill, overlooking the bay.

Very friendly staff, nice cup of coffee in the morning, lots of great stuff nearby (restaurants, beautiful scenery, shops, etc.)

Room Tip: Stay on 2nd floor for awesome views!

Our room was very nice. Everything was spotless clean and the room was quiet. The staff was helpful. The Inn is close to a Dunkin Donuts so it was easy to get breakfast off site..............................................................................................

Room Tip: We enjoyed the second floor room.

We stumbled upon this gem during a drive up the coast. We had no reservations and the was a jazz festival going on in town. Someone must have have cancelled, as there was one room left. It was huge,bright and quite lovely! We drank wine on the peaceful balcony and lamented that we could only stay one night. The staff was fabulous, and we will be back!

As a coordinator for our Air Force reunion group, I suggested a mid-coast Maine vacation in early October would be great area to hold our fourth reunion, and the Island View Inn appeared to be the ideal place for us to stay. Upon arrival in Rockport, Maine, all ten couples enthusiastically agreed. The king size rooms were extremely clean, comfortable and cozy, with morning sunrise views that were more beautiful than the photographs. The private balconies provided a chance to relax and take in the outstanding views of Penobscot Bay. The large second floor hallway became our "Hospitality Hall" during each afternoon of our five day stay. A review of the group's activities, such as our sail on the Schooner Olad out of Camden Harbor, and our day down in Freeport touring L.L. Bean's massive facility, were regular topics during each Hospitality Hour. The entire Island View Inn staff could not have been more friendly or accommodating. The excellent location between Camden and Rockland, presented numerous options for good food, along with various attractions and entertainment. We all agreed we would return to the Island View Inn in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: Most of our group had rooms on the second floor, so friendly get togethers were the norm, including...
