Your home away from home.

Our location

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. Galleries, dining, shops, our classic Main Street theater and even world-class museums, are all within an easy walk. And just at the end of our street, one of the world's most beautiful bays greets you. Take a stroll on the boardwalk and tour the harbor sights.

common areas

Enjoy relaxing afternoons, 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.

The upstairs common Room is for all to share. Microwave, snacks, fridge, books, magazines,  and small TV are there. 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.

Your meals

Daily Breakfasts are prepared with careful attention to a wholesome and healthful lifestyle. Your plate will be filled with fresh fruits and berries, whole grains and locally raised farm eggs and sausage. 

Guests enjoy friendly conversations around the table as they share breakfast along with ideas and discussions about planned events or directions or other recommendations.  Very often they leave the table as new friends!

With advance notice, most special diets can be accommodated.
Picnic lunches can be arranged as well, for a modest additional fee.
