This beautiful turreted Victorian mansion is an exquisite example of Queen Anne architecture. Featuring two front parlors, spacious guest rooms and an inviting wrap-around porch, LimeRock Inn offers guests the chance to experience luxury and elegance in a gracious historical setting. Located in Rockland’s Historic District within strolling distance to the renowned Farnsworth Museum, the Inn is perfectly situated for those who enjoy exploring Rockland’s downtown and waterfront by foot or for leisurely driving tours of the Midcoast region. Eight sizeable guest rooms are decorated blending period details with comfort and luxury.
Breakfast at the Inn is a culinary experience. Frank and PJ have a simple outlook on good food and fine dining. They believe that only two kinds of people exist in the world – “those who eat to live, and those who live to eat.” Being lifetime members of the latter group, they know the Inn’s spacious and sunny dining room is just the right setting to accompany their delicious and creative breakfast creations. They invite you to share their love of good food during your stay.
In 2007, LimeRock Inn attained certification as a Maine Lodging Environmental Leader in recognition of the owners’ green efforts promoting reduced water usage, energy conservation, recycling and refraining from the use of detergents and cleaning products potentially harmful to the environment. This commitment was made with guest comfort, luxury, and service as the primary objectives and financial considerations secondary. Simply put, we artfully balance Mother Nature and our bottom line.
The Inn has been featured on The Food Network’s “Throwdown With Bobby Flay”, HGTV’s “If Walls Could Talk”, and boasts being the only domestic prize destination on BedandBreakfast.com’s first ever B&B week on Wheel of Fortune in January 2008. LimeRock Inn is a five time (2010-2014) Certificate of Excellence Award Winner from Trip Advisor by consistently rating in the top 1%. In 2013, LimeRock Inn received the acclaimed Reader’s Choice Award – Best B&B in Maine from DownEast Magazine. Additional awards and accolades include Editor’s Choice Award from Yankee Magazine for “Best Wrap-Around Porch” and a second feature award, “Best Location for Walking to Shops/Dining”, by Lanier Bed & Breakfast. Frank and PJ are most proud of the latter designation as being guest generated.
The eight guest rooms are named after regional islands or architecture elements. All offer luxury baths, some with whirlpool baths or claw foot soaking tub. Room décor varies from luxurious and ornate to cottage-style charm. There are five queen and three king-sized beds. The Fox Island room offers a European king bed that can be set as twins. Trundled daybeds and a sleeper sofa allow for even more flexibility in sleeping arrangements. The Inn’s premier guest room, Grand Manan, boasts a wood burning fireplace and two-person whirlpool tub.
Egyptian cotton linens and towels are used exclusively. Guests will find chocolates and bottled water in their room daily. Privately labeled shampoos, soaps and bath crystals are found in each bath. A toiletry pantry for those “forgotten” items is also available.

In 2010, the room amenities have been upgraded to include air-conditioning, flat panel televisions with built-in DVD players and Ipod docking clock radios.
