LOCAL INFO: We are a small Inn that is located in a pretty remote area, so we do not have nightlife options or easy access to public transportation. It is very quiet and peaceful here and the nearest town is about 15 minutes away. If students like the beach, the ocean and nature, it might be a good fit. If students are looking for a big city with lots of action, it’s not like that here! Our property is right on the ocean, on a peninsula, half way up the coast of Maine.

ARRIVAL INFO: Students can fly to Boston Logan and take the Concord Coach bus directly from the airport to Rockland, Maine where we would pick them up, or they can take a one hour flight on Cape Air from Boston Logan to Rockland (airport code is RKD.) The bus is very comfortable, less expensive and is about a 4.5 hour ride.
Otherwise you can fly to Portland, Maine, and take the Concord Coach bus to Rockland, Maine which is about a 2 hour drive. Portland is much smaller and there aren’t generally direct flights there…you might fly into New York, then Portland, for example.
We can help coordinate the bus, and they will have our contact information so we could help at any point along the way.
