I spoke with Frank and PJ, owners of the beautiful Limerock Inn and asked them for their perspective on why they love Rockland. I know why I love it and why guests love it, but I wanted to hear it from them as 'residents' of the vibrant community. They have fully immersed themselves in the community and that's wonderful. It tells me they are where they belong.
