Navigator Motor Inn: Convenient Rockland Hotel for the Vinalhaven Ferry

Is there a difference between a hotel and a motel?

The Navigator Motor Inn was a very decent hotel in Rockland, Maine very close to the ferry terminal to depart out to the islands of Vinalhaven, North Haven or Matinicus Island.

We stayed here only one night, but to be honest could very easily have stayed a couple more. The room was clean (for the most part, the blanket on the bed had a suspicious "spot" on it so we removed it and put on another extra blanket that had been stored in the closet within the hotel room) and very spacious. We had a small balcony overlooking the ferry terminal and with a slight glimpse of the bay.

The view overlooking the terminal is very convenient if you have a car in line at the terminal to keep easy tabs on it and see if you need to move the car up. The hotel's location was also very close to the old Rockland downtown area with nice cafes, antique and art shops, and a couple tourist paraphenalia shops.

Overlooks the Vinalhaven, North Haven and Matinicus Island ferry terminal.

A Unique Cottage: Find a Cottage to Rent...and you will return again

I have to say that a rental is hard to find....but you might find one.

Once you do, you will come back every year I can promise you that.

Or find another Maine island to visit for a time. They are unique experiences of going back in time....a slice of old time charm and lifestyle.

Below is a website for rentals on Cliff Is. Good luck.

Cliff island, Maine, Casco Bay: None....only Self-Cater Rentals by wk or month.

Cliff Island is an isolated island in the Casco Bay off the coast of Portland Maine.

If you can get a self-catering rental on this island, go for it.
They are hard to find, due to the returning visitors every year at the same place.

Contact the Cliff Island Post office for a list of rentals and good luck.
Also see the website below.

Beautiful serene place away from it all.
Leave your car on the mainland, take a ferry and forget everything....rest and respute only.

Transportation of Island, bikes, walking, golf carts, and a few all season cars that belong to the locals only.

Get a Cabin on Rangely Lake

If you are up in Maine's Rangely Lake area, there are several small, rustic cabins that can be rented right on the lake shore. Ours had a deck overlooking the lake and when we walked out on it I felt like I was living a scene from "On Golden Pond". It also had a wood stove that was perfect for keeping it cozy on those chilly autumn evenings. I imagine that the grove of cabins gets pretty busy during the summer, but we were practically the only customers when we went in the autmn -- even though it was foliage season.

Cromwell Harbor Hotel: Right outside of downtown

The 1st night we stayed in Bar Harbor, the goal was to stay in downtown. When we came back, we didn't mind being slightly removed and closer to Acadia National Park because we had to get up early (or were supposed to) and we were just going to Acadia the next morning. The change in price being about 1/4 mile removed from downtown is incredible...this hotel was cute. Only one floor, a little porch, some hanging flowers, kept up very well.

There really wasn't anything that set it apart from other hotels except they still use real keys rather than the magnetic cards:) I did like how it was away from the others and if I had a family, it would be my choice in the future. It was decorated very well...made you feel more at home (granted in a really small home) than in a hotel room.

Spruce Valley Campsite: Woodland camping with good facilities

We would recommend this site. Each campsite had its own bench and fire area and the forest setting provided privacy betweeen the individual sites. The shower/toilets were always spotless and the water hot.

It is located 5 minutes from an entrance into Arcadia National Park.

Chimney Pond, Baxter State Park: Enjoy the Fresh Air in a Lean-to

On our 2004 trip to Baxter State Park, we slept two nights in a lean-to at Chimney Pond, halfway along the trail to the peak of Mt. Katahdin. Even though it was August, the nights were cold and windy, but the lean-to kept us warm (well, slightly at least). Best of all, it kept us dry and meant we didn't have to carry a tent in our backpacks. While this was a welcome relief for our old backs, the hard boards of the lean-to exacted their revenge as we awoke sore every morning. Still, to rise and look out at Katahdin as the first light hit it was worth all the aches, and to hear moose trot by at night was worth the pain.

Fisherman's Warf Inn: Overlooking the bay

This is a very quaint Inn situated right on the bay. The rooms are nothing to rant and rave about, but probably the best location of the limited amount of hotels in the area. Very accomodating staff who are very accomodating. All and all a very pleasant trip. As this is only a 3 story building, try to get a room on the third floor closest to the water, the views are amazing!

Resaturant (with some of the best lobster around), in house bar, valet parking

KAWANHEE INN: Hideaway in the Maine woods ~~~~

The Kawanhee Inn sits among cathedral pines overlooking a lake in central Maine. there are 9 rooms and 10 cabins...with a main lodge that has a pool table, puzzles, fireplaces and rocking chairs. Yes, it is the place for rest and rejuvenation. You can hike, canoe, fish, swim, or lay around on the screened porch of your cabin. Chore boys come in and light your fire in the morning. They deliver a bottle of fresh spring water every day.
I was delighted to find a listing for them when I searched the internet...but they don't have a web site, evidentally. Guess they are still so laid back that they know you will come somehow....and be very happy that you did.

Desert of Maine Campground: nice dry desert to camp in....

I had another, cheaper campground picked out but we could not find it and this one looked very convenient to the main highway. I was very happy it worked out this way as the people working there were very friendly and helpful. We were going back and forth to Portland every day so it was an easy place to find when coming home! lol

It is a great little campground and we had a cool tent site all by itself. We had to carry our gear down a little hill but once down there, it was like wilderness camping. But it was going down to 32 F at night so we mostly were hanging out in Portland and Freeport and just crashing here. ;) Offseason rates for tent camping were $18.

Baxter State Park Camground: camping at the base of Katahdin....

Baxter State Park offers great camping opportunities but you need to reserve in advance as even though the park is massive, there are a limited number of camping spots.

The sites are quite spread out and the best ones have cooking shelters in case of inclimate weather. The ranger was very helpful and friendly and the overall feeling is one of complete safety and well-being. The campgrounds are right at the trailheads. We stayed at Katahdin Stream and it was on the Appalachian Trail, just five miles from Mount Katahdin's peak.

The Madison Resort Inn: Maine Riverside lodging

Driving through New England on a "leaf-peeping" excursion in late Sept., early Oct., we spent each night at a different site, never reserving ahead but looking for a "home for the night" as the afternoon grew late-- four or five pm.
We came upon Madison Inn alongside the wide river and nearly empty on a weknight at this time of year. Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable and well appointed.
There is a well-stocked exercise room as well as an outdoor pool .
There is also an attractive dining room, fireplace alight,walls decorated with trophy heads from Africa. Food was good and reasonable.
Continental breakfast in anaother dining area was included.

The Madison is well located for summer fun; hiking in Grafton State Park , which is bisected by the Appalachian Trail; and river activities right at the site.
We met a Canadian couple who was also overnighting there. They make it a regular stop on their annual trip to Cape Breton Island.
