Once the stately home for one of Rockland’s most prominent merchants, today, Berry Manor Inn is among Maine’s most romantic B&B inns and was recently named one of the top ten best B&Bs and inns in the US by TripAdvisor.com and bedandbreakfast.com. Down East Magazine calls it “The Wow House.” Renowned for its room amenities, grand hospitality with a Victorian flair, real Maine comfort (only salt air here!) and a very unusual collection of toy hamsters, the Berry Manor Inn offers the ideal mid-coast location for exploring Maine’s arts, heritage and sights. The Berry Manor Inn offers a host of amenities for everyone from those seeking a romantic getaway to travelers in search of business amenities including complimentary high-speed internet access, flat screen televisions with DVD players, IPod docking stations, guest computer and printer work station, in-room phones and flexible breakfast schedules. The Berry Manor Inn has been certified by the state of Maine as an environmental leader in the hospitality industry.
There are twelve spacious and uncluttered guest rooms – eight in the main inn (four each on 2nd and 3rd floors), and four in the Carriage House (all 2nd floor rooms). Two of the Carriage House rooms can be converted to a two room/two bath suite. All twelve guest rooms have private en-suite luxury baths, air conditioning, working fireplaces and individual heat controls. Eight rooms offer whirlpool baths (four are oversized two-person baths) and four rooms offer custom two-person walk-in, multi-jet showers for the vertical whirlpool experience.
Each of the twelve guest rooms is uniquely decorated in the warm, rich colors of the Victorian palette and furnished with a blend of antique and period reproductions. Great care has been taken to preserve the features of this grand mansion, including the display of the original wallpaper in some rooms. Each guest room offers a telephone, wireless or cabled high-speed internet access, flat screen television with DVD player, irons/ironing boards, clock radio, hair dryer and warm, plush robes. A lovely collection of signature soaps and shampoos is offered in each room. Each night, staff turn down beds, leave chocolates on the pillows, and set the radio to soft classical music to welcome you home to your room.
In the quiet season, (mid-October through May) room rates range from $125 (double occupancy) for some 3rd floor rooms with queen beds and private baths featuring claw tubs to $195 for luxury rooms featuring king beds, sitting areas, double whirlpools and multi-jetted showers. During the summer season, (June through mid-October) the same rooms range from $145 to $310 per night. Online booking is available.
