Perfect B&B!

What a beautiful B&B LimeRock Inn is! The hosts were very pleasing to talk to. The breakfasts were fresh and delightful and our room was extraordinary! We even had our own private entrance! Highly recommend to anyone.

Best B&B

5 on October 20, 2013

We have stayed at a number of B&B's but the Lime Rock is the best. The room was very clean and comfortable. The breakfast's were perfect and so delicious. The 24 hour coffee and snacks were a welcome extra. I can't say enough about the owners, they were wonderful. It was a great few days that helped us celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary.

Wonderful Inn

We had a wonderful stay here. The innkeepers were so friendly and hospitable. The room was just a pretty as the pictures, spacious, and clean. The breakfast was delicious and allowed us to meet a few of the guests and chat with the owner. It was a treat having food from his garden as well! The house has beautiful grounds. They have complimentary snacks, coffee, soda, and water which a very nice touch. Would definitely recommend!

Exquisite Historic Inn

You will not find a better Inn or Inn Keepers. The Inn was recommended by a friend who lives in the area, and who knows the area's history well. This jewel is walking distance to downtown. The rooms are fabulous but PJ and Frank really make the Inn come alive. Frank's breakfasts are a foodie delight and PJ's smile is infectious. His advice on local eateries and points of interest was spot-on! A MUST stay if in the Rockland area. If you are lucky, you may even get an Elvis sighting (the Blue Hawaii version, of course).

Rockland is a must if you visit ME and the Limerock is the best place to stay. Frank and PJ are great hosts we are coming back for our second stay this February because we love this Inn. The linens are fabulous you won't want to leave, but when you do you will be rejuvenated and looking forward to your return to Limerock Inn. Top notch restaurants and fantastic wine are within walking distance.

Worth traveling across the country

We had an awesome stay in this beautiful B&B. The service was excellent, the owners were fabulous, and the breakfast was to die for - lemon blueberry pancakes were incredible! The room was nicely appointed and the inn was very comfortable. Frank and PJ definitely made us feel at home. We will definitely be back!

My Favorite Destination

5 on July 16, 2009

We stay at the Limerock every year in July for a few days, and absolutely love the atmosphere off this beautiful Inn. It has a cozy wrap around porch and the best served breakfast by two Inn owners with wonderful personalities. They always make us feel at home. It is only a few blocks from downtown Rockland which makes it easy to come and go when in town for special events by the bay. The Inn has lots of charm and comfort areas and is very quiet and private.

The Limerock Inn was even more than we had hoped for. We wanted to be married in Maine by the coast, and Frank and Pj handled everything for us. They even had a way to stop the rain just long enough for us to have our ceremony.:) We spent our honeymoon at the Limerock and enjoyed everyday of it. Every breakfast was wonderful and our room was elegant and so relaxing. The whole Inn was beautiful and Frank and Pj were great host. Our only regret was that we had to leave. GREAT CHOICE!
