Reviewed 14 October 2011

We took a trip to Maine this past weekend and stayed at Island View Inn, which was recommended to us, and we are very thankful. The Inn is located in beautiful surroundings at Rockport, which is only a few minutes away from Camden and from Rockland. Its units all overlook the ocean including the bottom floor with its patio. There is a big hill leading to the water but not too big to walk down to it where adirondak chairs await you with their umbrellas. A small red boat sits on the water as a focus for a gorgeous picture. Coffee and tea was available in the lobby. A laundry room is also onsite as well as a heated pool. The rooms are nautical in decor with lots of storage space and a big bathroom with its little plastic "ducky" waiting for your first relaxing bath.

Room Tip: Room 115 and a full moon night would be a bonus.

This motel sits next to Strawberry Hill Motel for which i did an earlier review. To make it short and sweet you won't have a disappointment with either. Island View Inn also has a perfect setting as it overlooks the bay it also features a wonderful heated edge pool that has a view of the bay in the background. The rooms are clean, comfortable and nicely appointed. The staff is friendly. We would not hesitate recommending it to family or friends and if we are in that area again it we would stay there again.

Room Tip: I think all the rooms are going to be good i cannot say that from personal experience but from what...

This is the second time we have stayed at this beautiful inn. We came upon it last year by accident, and I'm glad we did. This summer we called and asked for the same room again. We stayed on the bottom floor so we had an outdoor patio onto the grass. All the rooms have a deck looking out onto the ocean and a view of an island. Binocculars are included on the desk. The room is spotless and decorated in a nautical theme. Everything is perfect and freshly painted. If I had to find anything wrong, maybe the bed was a little hard, but really I am not complaining. I really enjoyed my two nights at this little inn tucked amongst beautiful gardens and a fantastic view. You could stay right in Camden and spend a whole lot more money, but really? Why would you. Don't hesitate to book a room.

Room Tip: Don't worry, all rooms come with a deck, binocculars and a wonderful view of the ocean. Outside...

We have stayed at the properties owned by Ken for six years. Each year, promptly on April 1st the first phone call is to Cindy to book the same room at Island View. We began staying four days, then a week, then ten days. We always left wishing we could have more time. This past visit, we decided that one week was not enough so we spent a glorious 2 weeks at one of the owner's other properties, Cove House. Now we can't wait to a 3 week stay in 2012!! Whether your time is limited to one night or 3 weeks... You will be back!
