Hotel at a Glance: Captain Lindsey House

More than 150 years ago, Captain George Lindsey hung his sea captain’s hat inside the Federal-style home that would become one of Rockland’s first inns. Captain Lindsey House has since grown into a successful bed and breakfast. Each morning, your hosts whip up buffet breakfasts made with locally sourced ingredients, with dishes including farm-fresh eggs and veggies, house-baked bread, and Belgian waffles.

  • Walk to the waterfront: Lermond Cove and the ferry terminal are just a block away.
  • Snuggle by the fire: Each guest room has been recently renovated and has electric fireplaces.
  • Modern touches include free WiFi.
  • Press accolades: CNN Money singled out the B&B when it picked Rockland as one of the “10 great last-minute summer getaways,” and Frommer’s writes that the inn posses “a good dose of throwback-Maine character and some of the friendliest inn owners on the entire Midcoast.”

Rockland, Maine: Historic Shipping Hamlet on the Atlantic Coast

Rockland’s granite breakwater stretches for nearly a mile into the harbor, to a century-old red-brick lighthouse that still guides boats to the shore. If you’re visiting Rockland for the first time, a tour of the lighthouse is a nice place to start, or book one of the local sunset cruises. You could also snag a spot along the pier to cast out for sand sharks and rock bass.

Naturally, the water has been central to Rockland’s growth. A shipping hamlet in the late 18th century, the village has become a tourist destination in the years since, recently landing on _CNN Money Magazine’s list of the top ten best last-minute summer destinations. Each August, folks flock to Rockland to sample fresh-caught lobster, steamed crabs and mussels at the Maine Lobster Festival. If you’re not here in August, you can still head downtown to bite into succulent fresh-caught shrimp at one off the many seafood restaurants.

A few local museums make for an educational afternoon on a rainy day. At the Maine Lighthouse Museum, visitors get a glimpse into the history of lighthouses by exploring a collection of historic Coast Guard items and Fresnel lenses. You can also take in paintings of Maine’s idyllic landscape at the Farnsworth Art Museum, which exhibits works by a young Andrew Wyeth.

Customer Reviews

The inn keeper was so amazingly attentive and accommodating. The hotel itself was beautiful and charming.
Victoria B. · July 5, 2017
Loved everything about it. First of all, our host Joanna was wonderful in every way. She made a delicious hot breakfast each morning. The nautical/newer decor is pretty. The bed was so comfy! Especially loved being downtown in the midst of the shops, restaurants, and the movie theatre. Thank you, Joanna for your hospitality and restaurant suggestions, etc. We'll be back when there's another Groupon and will recommend the inn to others.
