Historical Traveler Reviews LimeRock Inn Rockland
Lime Rock Inn owners provide great hospitality and beautiful place to stay. Located within easy walking distance of the main street of Rockland as well as local museums. Rooms are comfortable, breakfast is delicious, We would definitely stay there again. In addition they have great package deals listed on their website.
What a treat!
We enjoyed the Lime Rock Inn so much. It was a beautiful, clean, well done victorian inn. Frank and PJ were the innkeepers and couldn't have welcomed us more. We enjoyed sharing stories with them and felt like they were part of our family. A great place for a quiet get away. Breakfast was just right. We loved this experience.
Such a wonderful time
This is our second visit to the LimeRock Inn; the first under the new owners. Physically, the grand victorian building is superb. Beautiful woodwork in all the rooms, but especially in the sitting rooms, dining room and hallways and stairs. The owners, Frank and PJ, are very welcoming and great sources for things to do and see. The rooms have great variety in terms of size and features, but they are all comfortable and welcoming.
The Inn is located wonderfully for a visit to Rockland as it is just three blocks (an enjoyable walk) to the Farnsworth museum, one more block takes you into downtown which has a nice variety of shops and restaurants and less than a five minute ride to one of New England's finest gourmet stops, Primo Restaurant.
It was our second visit, but it won't be our last.
B&B Conversion Experience
I just had a really extraordinary experience on a short Easter trip with my family in Rockland, Maine at the LimeRock Inn. I'd heard about the LimeRock, word of mouth, from a friend and would like to spread the good news, word of Web. Full disclosure: I'm new to the B&B world and carried a certain trepidation with intimacy issues. I was a bit afraid that B&B meant forced friendliness with perfect strangers and a decided clash with my curmudgeonly disposition. I was completely knocked out by the happy mixture of warmth and privacy. Sharing a charming and special environment with people, on a more human basis than a hotel offers, gave me a real boost. And nobody ever came close to asking me to sing "Kumbaya". The ambience of the place: well-maintained elegance and richness, really had the effect of making me feel that I was transported to a special world. There was plenty of comfortable space in the public rooms for me to curl up privately with my books. I even engaged in conversation with some of the other guests, made some friends and, at least as far as the LimeRock is concerned, have shed some B&B guest-intimacy-phobia.
The setting and location are great. A beautiful house, a wide, spacious piece of property on a quiet street just a few minutes' walk from the neat little town center. And Rockland is cool. It's not "quiched-out" yet, it's local charm, not globalized charm. Plenty of first-class eats, within walking distance of the LimeRock or a short drive.
Speaking of eats, that brings me to the proprietors, PJ and Frank. At the risk of too much gush, they bring a level of sophistication and "just-so-ness" to the décor, service, management, guest accommodation and food preparation that brings a luxury feel to your Maine stay. Just step into the kitchen and you'll know you're in the presence of food people. I felt thoroughly refreshed and satisfied; my sullen teenagers were civil and happy. Maybe the place is enchanted.
A great B&B
I stayed in the Lime Rock Inn for a week in the beginning of April. The Inn is a fantastic old house infused with charm and character. The front parlor has large clubby chairs surrounding the fireplace - a perfect place to read on a rainy day, while the other end of the room contains an entertainment center. The guest rooms are various sizes, but all are nicely appointed. Breakfast varied from sweet to savory items that were all good; sodas and other small treats are available throughout the day. Frank and PJ, the owners, were friendly, helpful and knowledgable about the area. The Inn is located within easy walking distance of many Rockland shops, restaurants and galleries. The property is large enough for children to run around in the yard without disrupting other guests. This is a lovely B&B that you are sure to enjoy.
39th anniversary get away
When we got there they were waiting for us to help us with our luggage. Because it was our anniversy they upgraded our room. We had a very nice time chatting with the owners Frank and PJ.and the food was ecellent.The Inn was very comfortable and we would be more then happy to return there for a vacation sometime.

Anyone who plans to visit Rockland must see the LimeRock Inn. It's tremendous! Beautiful! Perfectly well-kept. The owners are fabulous hosts. They are so friendly - but if you are a B&B goer that doesn't like small-talk they'll leave you alone - but if you love to talk - so do they... it's a perfect place to stay. The atmosphere is so comforting, elegantly decorated, the rooms are ALL spacious & SO clean... it is hard to choose which room to stay in. It was the best night's rest I have ever experienced - the bed was sooo comfortable!!!! Take their advice and go to Prism Glass if you are going up north - it's an expensive restaurant but the food is the best I've had in Maine...
We chose the LimeRock Inn off the website - often this is a hit or miss process - and we were so happy with our choice! It is beautiful Victorian home with charming, authentic rooms. The innkeepers are wonderful - easy to chat with and fun - they obviously enjoy and love their home and the lifestyle of owning a B&B - the breakfast was delicious! We highly recommend this place and wish that all of our B&B experiences were like this one!
Hospitality and comfort reign in charming Queen Anne Victorian
Rockland is a lovely coastal town, with the world-class Farnswoth Museum an added attraction. Our enjoyment of our recent visit was greatly enhanced by our stay at the Limerock Inn.
Frank and PJ, our hosts, go out of their way to accommodate their guests. They are very good company, and we enjoyed learning about their experiences in buying the property in December 2004, and running the Inn since then. My husband and I are architecture buffs, and they gave us a detailed tour of the structure and its improvements which was fascinating and fun.
The Inn is a grand Victorian set in a lovely garden, with lawns, trees, flowers, shrubs and a gazebo. There is a porch which wraps around the front, with comfortable wicker furniture to relax on. Inside, we admired the period decor and furniture, some original to the house. The rooms are bright and airy, and the lighting fixtures, floors, woodwork and wallpaper are in excellent condition. Everything is spotless and beautifully maintained. The hallway by the kitchen and computer room is decorated with photos PJ took of local attractions.
One amenity I haven't seen elswhere is a computer room with local phone access, complete with bottles of spring water for thirsty guests. I was able to check my email, and amend my return schedule on the Amtrak DownEaster train.
As to creature comforts, we were completely pampered. Our room, the Seguin, on the second floor, was decorated and furnished in updated Victorian style, elegant rather than frou-frou, We enjoyed the cross-breezes from the windows overlooking the garden. The bed was comfortable, with top quality linens. The shower was invigorating, with very good water pressure.
Breakfast was excellent, with lots of good coffee. The dining room is set up with glass tables for four to accommodate eating alone or joining other guests, and Frank and PJ added to the convivial atmosphere.
When it was time to leave, Frank drew us a map which gave us a much better route to take us to Portland, bypasing the traffic jams in this busy part of coastal Maine. We stopped for lunch at the A-1 Diner in Gardener, ME, which serves gourmet quality food in a true old time diner.
All things considered, I recommend anyone who visits Rockland to stay at the Limerock Inn. Frank and PJ will do their best to ensure that you have a wonderful visit.
Our stay at the Limerock Inn was lovely. The rooms, each unique and different, were clean and well appointed. Breakfasts were delicious.The Limerock Inn is an excellent location for those wanting to drive to Acadia National Park, as we did, but prefer to stay closer to Portland rather than in Bar Harbor.
