The Old Granite Inn Bed & Breakfast, located in the national historic district of Rockland, Maine, is a Federal Colonial built of gray granite quarried nearby in St. George. Local craftsmen fashioned the beautiful structure that still stands today. In the early 1900s, the building was purchased by the ELKS for their clubhouse.

In 1997, Ragan and John Cary of St. George, an educator and an engineer respectively, purchased the Inn as their gracious home, continuing the tradition of a fine Bed & Breakfast.
