~ripples~ Inn at the Harbor is clearly . . .
Not your Grandmother's Inn.
One of Rockland's first "Guest Houses" - it was originally opened in the early 1950s as a small business by the wife of the Rockland Train Station Master, Mr. Carsley. With passengers coming and going directly across the street. they enjoyed a lively business serving visitors to Rockland. They gave it the name of the surrounding tress calling it The Maples. Over the years the business changed ownership several times. and the last owners renamed it The Lathrop House.
Now with a new identity - carefully and creatively restored over the past few years, it has been updated for today's function and style; ~ripples~ will appeal to all those who embrace innovation and an environment that is open and conducive to creativity, expression and community. Healthy comfort food and the softest beds, daily tea and serene sea breezes all combine to make ~ripples~ the perfect getaway. Small is the new BIG today! ~ripples~ Inn is a special creative space to grow and explore! Get more from your vacation! Get the MOST from your vacation! Take home more than a tee-shirt or postcard. It is time to experience new things. New adventures for visitors and local folks alike.
Nestled on a pleasant side street footsteps from the harbor, ~ripples~ Inn offers the tranquility of a peaceful setting with all of Rockland's attractions a few steps away. Enjoy peaceful afternoons, fragrant fresh flowers and a wraparound veranda in the warm days and cool nights of summer. Common areas on the first floor include a cozy parlor with a little wood burning stove for those chilly autumn mornings and nippy evenings and a communal dining room.

Daily Breakfasts . . . with careful attention to a wholesome and healthful lifestyle your plate will be filled with fresh berries, local and tropical fruits and smoothies, whole grains and compassionately raised proteins (eggs/bacon/sausages). With advance notice, most special diets can be accommodated.
Picnic lunches can be arranged as well, for a modest additional fee. A wide variety of teas and coffees are available.
Common areas on the second floor include The Artistís Way (aka second floor hall) - a wonderfully created new pathway filled with artwork from friends, family, and other artists and crafts people of all sorts, known and unknown, or as yet undiscovered.

The UN-common Room is for all to share. Microwave, snacks, fridge, books and magazines, computer, small TV, computer and fax. Connect. Check your email. Have a snack. Disconnect. Read a magazine. Plan your adventures. Browse the bookshelf. Listen to the radio. Play a game of checkers with a former stranger. Strategize. Watch a little TV. Share your ideas. Ask questions. Get answers.
