The Seaward Inn has morphed over the years and recently downsized to a handful of nice rooms and suites. This place has a charm so befitting of New England. The rooms were built in the 40's and 50's, but rather than feel old and gray they have character and a certain charm that almost reminds you of a smaller and... More

Check-in: friendly, welcoming, fast and easy. Room: Small, cutely done up, tiny bathroom. Toiletries were generic and the towels faded and rough. GORGEOUS VIEW! Breakfast: the 2nd best part of this place (after the view), was the awesome breakfast Nancy provides! Fresh, decadent, hearty, scrumptious and lots of it! This place was lovely in so many ways- great lounge with... More

After 15 years we returned to find the Seaward Inn was still our favorite B&B on the East coast. The location is just a stone’s throw from the ocean, the home offers an atmosphere and comfort like few others, and one senses a depth of character only achieved by the same family owning the property for generations. It was devastating... More

We stayed in room 105 which is on the 3rd floor with an ocean view. We left the window open at night and could hear the waves pounding the rocks as well as the wind whistling around the eaves. Lovely! The room was a good size and the bed comfortable. Excellent shower in the bathroom but the toilet needed to... More

We booked late in the season, but were able to get the Gulls Nest room 206. It was perfect for a family of 4. As soon as pulled up after a much longer travel time due to traffic the gorgeous views take your breath away, and immediately take all the stress away. The grounds are beautiful, the outdoor seating located... More

In a word, magical. that's how I would describe my stay at the Seaward Inn in Rockport, MA. Located on the Atlantic Ocean the view is spectacular, as only the ocean can be. Sunrises viewed from my balcony fueled the energy for a new day and made the promise for sunshine whose warmth is felt in many ways. With a... More

Had an amazing few days at the Seaward Inn while exploring Rockport and Gloucester. Beautiful ocean view and the nicest staff. Regarding the Rockport area, we attended the performance center in downtown Rockport for a free concert. The quality was amazing and the venue and view were outstanding.

My husband and I were looking forward to a quick weekend getaway, our first since our son was born. We chose Rockport because it was a relatively easy drive, and we had heard great things about the area. We had no idea where we should stay, and after quite a bit of research, settled on the Seaward Inn. Luckily, this... More
