The Bass Rocks Inn is as close as you can get to the ocean without actually getting in. You can leave your screen door open at night to hear the waves crashing against the rocks. The rooms are clean and comfortable. We had the corner room at the end, 2nd floor and the view was breathtaking. The main building which... More

I would describe Bass Rocks Inn as part hotel/part B & B. The B & B building where the office is housed is also the location of the suites which is what we reserved. Specifically, we had the suite with the arched windows. This offered an amazing view of the water and more than enough space and the right atmosphere... More

We agree with Yankee soldiers review 100 percent. And, also want to add the vintage/antique billiard table was perfect for gaming and nostalgia. We also had the staff locate the name of the singer on a tape that was playing, for us. She did it with a smile and in haste. Above and beyond here. The detail and constant all... More

We arrived at the Inn to witness a breathtaking sunset! We sat by the fire pit and enjoyed the views of the Stacey House, the new pool and the ocean. How peaceful... We stayed two night in one of the gorgeous and very luxurious suites in the main building. Breakfast was all homemade and fresh fresh fresh. The staff was... More

My wife and I and our 11 year-old grandson just spent four nights at this beautiful inn on the ocean at Gloucester. We had a wonderful time. The inn is family-owned, and the pride that Tracy, Mark and their daughters take in their business shows constantly and throughout. The rooms are clean and spacious; they have all the amenities you... More

We had a wonderful experience at the Bass Rocks Ocean Inn. From the beautiful views, the lovely breakfast, the impeccably kept grounds, and the friendly, helpful staff, everything was great! The newly added fire pit is a fun way to spend the evening and chat with other guests. We will definitely return.
