Sporting one of the few granite façades left in Rockland, the Granite Inn began as a private residence when this Federal Colonial house was built in 1840 and attached to a smaller circa 1790 house. Once officially called The Old Granite Inn, the name was shortened by present owners, Ed and Joan Hantz because the styling of this inn is anything but “old”. Today, the Granite Inn offers a unique Midcoast Maine B&B experience ideal for exploring Rockland’s arts and dining scene along with the islands throughout the Penobscot Bay. Known for its warm hospitality, contemporary comfort, artistically decorated rooms, and innovative cuisine, the Granite Inn offers a wide range of amenities to romantic couples, families, business travelers, and people traveling with pets. Favorite guest amenities include “raidable” guest pantries with refrigerators, hot/cold bottled water dispensers, and a “bottomless” cookie jar. The Granite Inn has also been certified by the state of Maine as an environmental leader in the hospitality industry and is deeply committed to offering a sustainable vacation option. The Granite Inn is pet-friendly, family-friendly, smoke-free, offers a full sprinkler system throughout the whole inn, and within just steps of Rockland’s vibrant dining and shopping scene and harbor. Rates range from $105 to $215 per night depending on time of year and room chosen.
