What a GREAT place to stay!! Super cute!!! Extremely affordable, very friendly owners, and adorable decorated room! The minute I walked into the room I fell in love with the interior design. I have never felt so at home and welcomed at any other place. The room was decorated so beautifully—from the lovely bedside table with lovely flowers and WiFi display to the beautiful and unique flower wall hangings and even the light in the ceiling! It is 100% obvious the minute you walk in that extreme care is taken in preparing these rooms and the owners sense of style is amazing! I can’t forget to mention the lovely outside area with seating and fire pit as well as heated pool even though I didn’t make use of them they are a great touch to the already great place! I would absolutely stay here again when in the area-wouldn’t even consider another place! Excellent!

This is the nicest motel I have ever stayed at by far. We chose it because of the clear COVID precautions listed on their website and because we could park in front of the room instead of going through a lobby. The management followed through on those precautions and has disinfectant and hand sanitizer in convenient places.

The rooms were clean, with quality furniture and sheets, very in line with standard hotel rooms. We did not hear the noise from the road or other guests while we were in our room.

The big surprise was the niceness and convenience of the rest of the grounds. The centrally located grills (2) are perfect if you don't want to go out to eat and we enjoyed the picnic tables for food we picked up elsewhere. There are a dozen separate sitting spaces out doors, so we always felt comfortable and socially distant. We were even able to have the pool to ourselves a few times. There's also a dog run in the back that is shockingly clean. The new gardens are gorgeous and everything seems freshly painted.

Staff were very friendly and helpful. They found a football for my kids to throw around and were on hand with fresh towels for the pool. We would certainly come back, in COVID times or not.

We had a lovely vacation stay at the Starlight Lodge. The management was very accommodating and provided all we needed, such as extra towels and other supplies for the rooms (we rented two rooms for the family), and the rates were excellent for being in season. The rooms were quiet and super clean; decor was very new and smart. Air conditioning worked great and was necessary given the summer heat!

We used the hotel pool, which was very nice and in excellent shape. The hotel lit the fire-pit nightly which was also very nice.

We traveled with our dogs and they were welcomed by the management and staff.

Overall an excellent stay.

My husband and I had an excellent stay at Starlight Lodge. The room was great for the two of us...very clean and up to date. Starlight Lodge offers a cozy relaxing outside area with a fire pit, grills, pool, and multiple seating areas. They have taken extra precaution during the pandemic such as providing sanitation stations by rooms and sitting areas. Amazing spot near multiple restaurants and beautiful scenery!

My family loved this place. We found the room to be very tastefully and elegantly decorated and practical with a microwave, refrigerator, air conditionar and plenty of storage space offered. The heated pool is big and clean and the outdoor spaces pretty and cozy. The staff was helpful and readily available by phone, as they offered a very COVID-friendly keyless entry check-in. We were just minutes to one of our favorite spots - The Rockport Marine Park and Camden village. We feel it was a great value and would definitely return.

We spent one night at the starlight on our way to bar harbor. It was perfect for our needs. Clean room well decorated with very nice lighting and Persian rug. Well appointed mirrors with clean new bathroom sink and vanity. Air conditioning worked so well I had to turn it off In the morning because when exiting our nice warm comforters the room
Itself was chilly but comfortable still. Now, moving on to the grounds: wonderful in ground swimming pool with pool toys and floats for the kids provided free of charge. This was special since we were on our way somewhere else we did not have time to pack things in our car such as pool toys. It was great to have them. Plenty of comfortable seating around the pool ie: lounge chairs and a cool hammock type thing that the girls loved swinging in. 3 NEW propane grills sit right outside the pool area so if you plan ahead and bring stuff to grill and a cooler of beer you could really be having yourself a nice time. There is also a great fire pit just behind the grill area with a whole heap of free firewood close by. These were the kind of extras which, if you take advantage of, and actually use can turn this lodge into a great experience. During the day since it is on a main road there is a bit of traffic that you do hear and see. But when night falls and you are sitting by the fire looking at the stars the traffic subsides and your suddenly transported to a nice campfire talking with other guests about whatever comes to mind. Ahhhh relaxation and connection with others. A true treat at this maine stay. The owner was lovely and helped us decide what close by towns to check out and helped us choose a great spot for dinner. Another selling point at this lodge you are in close proximity to 2 great towns to take a stroll and wander around in. Rockport and Camden. My only complaint is that I did not stay longer. All this for an exceptionally affordable price, you have one happy camper here!

A fantastic, charming little hotel. The new innkeepers are very attentive and Iike to make your stay special with a personal touch. We enjoyed the heated pool. The fire pit with outdoor seating was much appreciated each evening. It was nice to sit around a campfire and safely chat with other guests during these crazy COVID times. We live less than an hour away, and we will be back, a hidden gem!

So loved staying here! The cabins were furnished with really cool, tasteful decor - and so clean! I’m the type of person who usually wipes things down wherever I go, but literally did not need to!
It was quiet, they have a lovely pool I was able to relax at and a fire pit! So if you’re feeling social, head out to the fire and toast some marshmallows!
There’s enough space so you can enjoy a private getaway or if you have kids, to enjoy the pool.
The grounds are lovely and well maintained and the inn keepers were so helpful and super responsive. Anything you need, they reply right away- felt so silly because I wasn’t sure how to lock my door (ugh, technology- lol) so I texted Cindy and she got right back to me and was so kind! Met Earle while I was out at the pool & he told me he cleans it daily. Needless to say, I felt very safe and well taken care of. It’s close to the beach and the harbor as well.
Will definitely stay again next time I’m in Maine!

Had an enjoyable stay in the Maxi Camper at Starlight Lodge. It was almost brand new when we stayed in it, so everything was very clean. The property was very well maintained, pool was spotless, BBQ grills and picnic tables. Camper is great for two standard size adults and small child, but might be a tight fit if you are 6ft+ or have a child older than 10. This property is perfectly situated between Camden and Rockport, so much to do in this area! Inn-Keepers so attentive, and cleaning staff were always dropping off fresh towels. Great stay, would recommend!

This is definitely a case where the Innkeepers make the Inn.
My husband and I were driving up toBar Harbor from Logan airport . I had read wonderful reviews about this gem of a resort” where the mountain meets the sea.” We figured we would give it a try. I can’t say enough good things about the Starlight Lodge Rockport Harbor . From the moment you walk onto this pristine property you are treated like family. Silvia and Jim are so friendly and accommodating ,yet also seemed to sense when we wanted quiet time to rest in our room. The bed and linens are very comfortable. We really appreciated the big screen/flatscreen TV/microwave/ and refrigerator and Free WiFi.
When we wanted to breath in the crisp fresh air we were able to sit by the pool and have our complimentary morning coffee. At night there were lots of laughs to be had as we sat around the fire pit sipping glasses of wine as Jim entertained us with funny stories. They make the perfect team Apparently Jim can fix anything -our room was fully renovated-by Jim. Silvia is the epitome of organization she was constantly tending to the property while still conversing with the visitors.The room was immaculate and whoever did the decorating, did a lovely job. Several suggestions were offered regarding site seeing and dining.Highly recommend
