Why choose Rockland Maine for your vacation?

Why choose the Berry Manor Inn and the coast of Maine for your hard-earned vacation?

Rockland Maine isn’t just one of the coolest small towns in America but also one of the country’s top small “foodie” towns and the top adventure town in Maine also. Whether you are visiting the Midcoast Maine area for a romantic getaway, vacation or business; for a 2-night stay or for a week; and no matter the season, you can do as little or as much of the endless activities offered in the area and experience why this small coastal town has received all of these accolades.

Rockland was named one of the “Top Ten Coolest Small Towns in America” in 2009 by Budget Travel in recognition of Rockland’s thriving downtown area with its art galleries, historic Strand Theater, restaurants and world class museums all set next to a working harbor known for its lobster and commercial fishing. It represents the authentic Maine coast experience without the pretense. The Budget Travel article quoted Rockland as a town with “sophistication mixed with saltiness”.

In recent years the Camden/Rockland area has developed into a great area for foodies! There are over 18 restaurants in walking distance of the premiere Rockland ME Bed and Breakfast from the award winning Primo Restaurant to lobster shacks on the wharf and everything in between. It is not only the self-proclaimed lobster capital of the world but also where the lobster roll was actually invented. The Rockland/Camden area of Midcoast Maine has restaurants offering Thai, American, Japanese, Sushi, Italian, Mediterranean and Mexican cuisines. The area features an organic coffee roaster, an olive oil tasting room, several artisan cheese makers, local chocolatiers, and five wineries to round out the food scene.

And oh the adventures you can have here in Rockland Maine. Although the summer season boasts the most choice in adventures, there are outdoor activities available all year round. In the winter months you can snowshoe, snowboard, cross country ski, skate, ice fish, bird watch, winter hike or downhill ski at the only ski area in the US where you can ski and see the Atlantic Ocean. Late spring, summer and fall add island hopping, windjammer cruises, golfing, tennis, lobster cruise adventures, wine tour, kayaking, hiking, biking, swimming, rock climbing, salt-water or fresh water fishing, canoeing, lighthouse cruises, nature cruises or just enjoying the beach to the list of area activities. This is why the National Geographic Traveler has named Rockland Maine one of its top 100 adventure towns in the US.
