Historic Inns of Rockland, Maine earned IFWTWA’s Award of Excellence in Hospitality for its outstanding inns and exemplary guest services.
According to the IFWTWA member journalist who nominated Historic Inns of Rockland for recognition: “The Historic Inns of Rockland (4 properties) all work together in setting and complying with high standards of service. In addition, they have received the State of Maine award for conservation practices. During the past two years, I have stayed at the inns, toured, eaten, interviewed innkeepers, videoed their kitchens and have been impressed with their commitment to service, cleanliness, green practices, friendliness, and delicious food.”
The award nomination was carefully evaluated and recommended by IFWTWA’s Excellence Awards Committee and the award approved by IFWTWA’s Board of Directors.
