Loved our visit to The Quarterdeck By the Sea in the small, New England village of Rockport, Massachusetts, just north of Boston. The nice innkeeper Randy met us at our parking spot just off the road. We walked down the granite steps and through the flower garden to our room on the top floor of this lovely inn. There is...

With my boyfriend being less than a month shy of 21, I emailed them asking about their minimum check in age policy because it wasn't on their website. Then I kindly asked if they would make an exception if it was 21 because some other B&Bs have done this for us. Got a rude response from a Randy that was... More

Awesome views and location. However, breakfast is over a mile away, small room, paper-thin walls, no frills. Basically a post card boarding house. Strict rules and not smoker friendly if you smoke. Will try something else next time

Quirky hotel, but worth the trouble for the views. A mile out of Rockport with lawns down to the rocks. Precipitous path down from minimal parking (more down the road) but then you can sit and watch the sunset with the waves lapping. We watched the sunrise from our bed. Breakfast is taken at a motel a mile away, but... More

Despite a judge's requirement that Rockport designate a surfing area at Long Beach, on July 5, 2014 the Long Beach lifeguards were prohibiting visitors from surfing on the entire length of Long Beach. This is the second time that I have seen this happen so it obvious that Rockport does not believe in abiding by the law. I will never... More

The hotel is right on the water - I was happy to sit for hours, taking in the ocean view and the beautiful plantings on the grounds. The view is certainly the highlight, but our room was very nicely appointed - large, spotless - and our host Randy was very helpful without being at all obtrusive. The only downside -... More

Nice people, Quiet, close to a short drive to town. VERY relaxing. Good price. Enjoyed everything and will come back. We were looking for a non-hotel hotel. Room was large. Sunrise was perfect. Relaxed for three days.

This is an amazing B&B, great service, stunning view, beautiful decoration... The staff made me feel at home. With a great location, It's 5 minutes away from Rockport's downtown but in a peaceful and beautiful beach. I would definitely visit them again.

This place is fantastic. We came here for our 20th anniversary from MN. It was everything we hoped it would be and more. The room was large and spacious, the king bed was comfy and the view was unbelievable. You have your own private deck with this room and it is well worth the extra money. Gorgeous! The owner is...
