LimeRock Inn


The Inn

LimeRock Inn is tucked away on a quiet street in Rockland’s Historic District yet steps away from downtown for a visit to world-class museums, fine dining, Main Street shopping, and what Down East magazine referred to as "mid-coast Maine's most beautiful ocean walk." Encircled by a wraparound porch and landscaped gardens, this beautiful turreted Victorian mansion is an exquisite example of Queen Anne and Eastlake architecture reminiscent of the gracious lifestyle of Rockland in the late 19th century. We blend the best of classic style with modern appointments with eight guest rooms all with ensuite baths. We are the original and authentic "live like a local" vacation rental experience! As resident owners, we offer 24 hour concierge services and daily housekeeping. And unlike other inns, there is never a multi-night stay requirement.



The Grand Manan, Island Cottage & Fox Island rooms offer king beds and the remaining five offer queen beds. All have sumptuous bedding. Each room contains a private bath appointed with Egyptian cotton linens, hair dryer, cotton jar, makeup removal cloth, rejuvenating soap, bath crystals, shampoo, conditioner & body lotion . Each room also contains a flat screen TV, iPod/MP3docking alarm clock, charging station, complimentary bottled water and air conditioning (in season). The Grand Manan, Island Cottage and Monhegan rooms offer whirlpool tubs. The Grand Manan room has a fireplace. In-room massage therapy by a licensed therapist can be arranged during your visit. Don’t hesitate to ask us for more details. In-season rates range from $169.00 to $249.00.

Beyond the foyer are eight, well-appointed guest rooms decorated to create an environment of comfortable elegance. Architectural details and period furnishings evoke charm and character that enhance the overall feeling of comfort and hospitality with all the modern appointments like complimentary WiFi throughout the property to keep you connected.
