In the true spirit of romance, and sustainability, the owners of the three Historic Inns of Rockland, Maine have teamed up with Bixby & Co Craft Confectionary, Maine’s first Bean to Bar Chocolatier, owned by a feisty female pioneer in the craft chocolate world. And with a mutual nod to historic preservation,

Bixby products are manufactured in a 125-year old former ice plant located on a working waterfront in Mid Coast Maine that Bixby & Co. has refurbished while all of the Historic Inns are found in beautifully preserved homes. The chocolate confections are made from ethically sourced ingredients across the product lines including Bixby Bars, Peanut Butter Bites, Caramel Bites and Clusters, and bear many certifications that include Organic, Non-GMO, Kosher, Gluten-Free and Vegan Verification, Rainforest Alliance Certified chocolate, SQF Level II Certification, and certified Women Owned. So even if you can’t make it to Rockland for Valentine’s Day, many products are distributed into nationally recognized stores.

The three Historic Inns of Rockland, all located in Rockland’s Historic District and walking distance from Bixby & Co have put together a package to help celebrate the spirit of historic preservation and the romance of inns and chocolate.

For the two weekends surrounding Valentine’s Day, stay at LimeRock Inn, Granite Inn or Berry Manor Inn on Friday or Saturday nights, and combine a stay with a visit and tasting at Bixby & Co. Your package starts with chocolate dipped strawberries upon arrival. Then, take a tasting tour of Bixby & Co operations and best of all since no Valentine’s Day is complete without a box of Chocolates, take home a special box of “Bean to Bar” Valentines Day truffles to enjoy in your room or at home.

This package, includes:

  • A one night stay (more nights can be added) at any of the three Historic Inns of Rockland
  • Chocolate covered strawberries on arrival
  • Breakfast for two each morning of your stay
  • An exclusive tour of Maine’s only Bean to Bar Chocolate Factory
  • A Bixby & Co chocolate tasting
  • A take-home box of Bixby & Co Chocolates

All this starting at the amazing price of $165.00 per couple (+ tax). Package price varies with inn and room choice. Package is valid February 8 – 16, 2019.
