Intense and severe lightning storm tonight! Hotels in next town have lost power and are trying to find alternate accommodations for their guests. Luckily we still have power. Heavy rain and wind accompanied storm. All we need is a fireplace and some ...
Awoke this morning to fog yet warm. Fog didn't start to burn off until noon. It's 1645, 83 degrees, hazy, sunny and humid. Difficult to tour around in the fog. Looked around rockland a little more than went to Camden. Kim laying down, still not well. Enuf said. Stay tuned for pics ...
I did not write yesterday, nothing much to report. This morning we drove in the RAIN to rockland. Kim printed off directions from google maps and the GPS was secondary. E GPS kept telling us to exit and take secondary roads then get back on the highway. We followed the signs, thought we were lost just outside boston and pulled off to get directions. We weren't lost....just didn't go far enough. I ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Berry Manor Inn Rockland
Victorian Charm At Its Best
The Berry Manor Inn is a beautiful and charming Victorian mansion in Rockland, Maine. We had a gorgeous bedroom complete with a king size canopy bed and a fireplace. The private bathroom had a large whirlpool bathtub and double shower heads. We were served delicious breakfasts each morning including homemade coffee cakes, omelets, and waffles. To top it all off the owners, Mike and Cheryl, were incredibly friendly and went out of their way to make us feel at home. I've stayed at many B&B's all over the U.S. and in Europe and I must say that The Berry Manor Inn is at the top of my list.
Loved everything about the Berry Manor Inn!!
We loved the Berry Manor Inn! We've been going to Bed and Breakfast's for the past 15 years and this is our favorite!! My husband stumbled upon it on the internet and booked it for our anniversary. It was wonderful! The food was great and the room was beautiful! The place was very clean. Mike and Cheryl even left us a bottle of champagne and rose petals on our bed!! We felt like we've known them for years!! We'll definitely be back!!
The Berry Manor outclasses them all!
When a single night stay at a B&B is the highlight of a week long trip on the coast of Maine, that says it all. There are not enough 'stars' to properly rate this inn. If you can imagine being treated like royalty in a structure as exquisite as the White House, but at the same time feeling as at ease as if you were staying at your best friend's house, that is what you get at Berry Manor. Hospitality doesn't come any warmer than it does from Cheryl and Mike, the owners. They take a genuine interest in their patrons and make your stay perfect, down to the finest detail. I am convinced that I will never have a better B&B experience. Thanks again for making our anniversary such a wonderful event.
My husband and I just celebrated a belated Valentine's Day weekend at the Berry Manor Inn. We always put quite a bit of stock into the reviews that we read on Tripadvisor so we had high hopes for the Berry Manor and wanted to see for ourselves. Let's just say....believe the reviews!! Can't say enough good things about the rooms, innkeepers and amenities. We stayed in room 11 in the Carriage House. The carriage house rooms - there are 4 in total - are supposed to be a bit more luxurious than the 8 rooms in the inn itself, and are newer - renovations were complete in 2003. Our room had a comfortable king size bed, cozy gas fireplace and the most spectacular bathroom we had ever seen. The bath had a huge double whirlpool and a separate shower with 8 showerheads! There were plenty of thoughtful touches - corkscrew, wineglasses, rubber ducks and bath oil for the tub and bathrobes - as well as practical items like an iron and ironing board and a hairdryer. And that's just the room! There are plenty of common areas with comfortable couches, games and puzzles for guests to enjoy. Another great feature is the guest pantry. Both the carriage house and the inn have a separate pantry where coffee, tea, juice, soda and bottled water is available as well as home-made pie and ice cream. We are still craving the raspberry pie! Speaking of food, we had a wonderful multi course breakfast that included coffee, juice and water, fresh fruit, blueberry coffeecake, bacon, homefries and a baked frittata. Innkeepers Cheryl and Mike were a pleasure. We've already booked our return visit and we can't for it. We weren't disappointed and you won't be either!
From the very moment of walking into the Berry Manor Inn, I knew that our stay was going to be a memorable and special experience!!
The Berry Manor Inn is without a doubt my favorite bed and breakfast ever! Mike and Cheryl went out of their way to make our stay completely stress free by making reservations for our dinners, boat ride and massages. They also were extremely helpful in giving directions and hot spots to see. The decorating in the main home and carriage house is rich and relaxing. The hand made beds are amazing and the bedding is absolutely plush! My 2 favorite rooms are #12 (in the carriage house) and #5 (on the 3rd floor of the main house).... however, we were able to see all the rooms and I would gladly stay in any of them! To top it off, the homemade pies are to die for! I'm very anxious to go back in December to see the Christmas decorations! This Bed and Breakfast is a "Do not Miss" experience!
Spectacular time at The Berry Manor Inn
My wife and I stayed at The Berry Manor Inn on a recent honeymoon/anniversary trip. We could not have been more pleased with every single aspect of our stay!
The accomodations are first-class - Innkeepers Cheryl and Mike did not miss a trick. Each room of this former private residence (mansion) is spectacularly decorated (though not overdone) and very, very comfortable. Breakfast each morning was delicious.
We liked our stay so much that we changed our trip plans to stay there an additional night!
Thanks Cheryl and Mike!
We Loved This Place!!!
We totally loved this place and didn't want to leave. We arrived and were greeted by Cheryl who showed us around this huge house including the kitchen with a refrig with drinks, coffee and tea and the best of all...homemade pies for us in the evenings. The rooms were wonderful, we stayed in the Safari room (top floor so don't take heavy luggage). The bathroom had a wonderful whirlpool bath and plush towels with lovely bathroom amenities. We have stayed in many Inns before but we felt like we were in our family home versus someone elses. We are thinking about spending a week in the winter there. Lots of fireplaces with room to curl up. We will definitely be going back again. It may be a little pricy but it is so worth it!!!!
Outstanding service in an over-the-top Victorian setting
The service, attention to detail and attentiveness to all of our needs at the Berry Manor Inn were remarkable. Innkeepers Cheryl and Mike spoiled us; how can anyplace else ever match up? From coffee left outside our room in the morning to free internet access to the hilarious breakfast entertainment by Cheryl's mom, our stay was remarkable. Plush robes; turndown service; complimentary hot and cold beverages at all times. Great location too; walking distance to shops, Farnsworth Museum and restaurants. We'll be back!
Perfect B&B Experience
We stayed in Room Ten, in the Carriage House and found the whole experience to be perfect. The owners were able to squeeze us in on very short notice and were incredibly welcoming and gracious--they even worked to get us reservations at local restaurants for dinner. The inn itself is beautifully maintained and our room was spotless. With fresh pies and ice cream, coffee and other treats for us left in the two guest kitchens, we felt like we were staying with family. Plus, the breakfast in the morning was great--and kept on coming! Overall, it's the best B&B experience we've ever had.
