My wife and I decided to go to Rockland 2 weeks ago for our anniversary. We ended up going to Primo both nights we were there. Hands down the the best restaurant in Maine. This B&B was perfect. Very clean, quiet and the breakfast is amazing. Sandi was great to talk to and very helpful. Extremely comfortable and a great...

We stayed for a few nights and were taken back when we were informed by the owner that the staff would not be going into the room on the second day we were there. We have stayed in many B and B s and have never had daily basic servicing of the room such as emptying the trash, cleaning the...

The schooner we needed to board recommended another B&B, but they were fully booked. So as luck would have it, I found the nicest B&B I've been to in a long, long time. The only mark against Ripples is that it is geographically at the wrong end of town if you're heading for a trip in the ISAAC EVANS or...

In mid-August we stayed at The Ripples Inn, as we have had done each August, for the past three years. It is like coming home to Sandi and her sweet little dogs, Bella and Riccardo. Sandi makes the most fabulous breakfasts, something worth waking up for! It has been very convenient for our travels around the area. When you don't...

This is the first time I stayed at a B& B and I was a little bit leery at first but meeting Sandy and her canine assistants made us feel at home. She was a great host and took good care of our needs. It was definitely a wonderful experience and my husband and I are planning our next summer...

Ripples Inn is filled with charm. Sandi was a wonderful host --- she made scrumptious breakfasts with the freshest fruit and provided recommendations on things to do and places to eat. The location was a short walk away from the harbor, Main Street in Rockland and close to Primo, where my husband and I had the most fabulous meal. Our...

This is a fantastic B&B and we will stay again! The location is perfect, great property with plenty of parking and plenty of space. The proprietor and her canine assistants are welcoming and delightful. Excellent breakfast including the wonderful "real" Maine blueberries!

My husband and I were invited to a wedding close to Rockland and of course needed a place to stay. We had some trouble finding lodgings since Maine is popular during the summer with all the local festivals, so I was relieved to get a quick positive response from Sandi at Ripples Inn. I had no idea our stay here...

We have never stayed at a B&B before so we were newbies when we pulled up. We were immediately greeted by Sandie and we felt jnstantly at home. The place was so charming and quite large!
