The lapping sounds of the Atlantic, chinnelle (sp?) cover on the bed, quiet and quaint- what's not to love. Off season early April do not expect a lot to be open, but no crowds and plenty of parking. Most excellent stay.

My wife wanted to wake up to ocean sounds on her birthday and staying here she did. Great place to stay. Right on the wharf and water. Ocean view and sounds. Clean, bright, newly remodeled rooms. Excellent.

The Bearskin Neck Motor Lodge was very quant! We booked two rooms for one night in early April for a half marathon I was running in Gloucester. The Lodge is located at the end of the street over looking the water and was just beautiful. I plan to come back in the future for a weekend gettaway with just my... More

the back of your room literally butts up against the ocean. What an amazing inn and the owners are so helpful. We stayed over Thanksgiving and even though some shops were closed for the season our four days were full of great seafood, shopping and excursions around the area. This inn and town were just what we needed. I gave... More

We stayed here for 4 nights in the last week of October , Rockport itself was shutting down with very few restaurants open at night time. However the Bearskin Neck Motor Lodge is a very good place to stay.. The King room we had was on the upper floor, it was very comfortable and well appointed, the only thing missing... More

Hello, Thank you so much for the nice review. I am glad to hear you enjoyed your stay. Many people think Rockport's season ends in the summer. As you pointed out, we have many visitors through October. Many people find Rockport a great hub if they want to visit the bustling Salem during October. It is only a short drive... More

We only stayed here one night, but as soon as we arrived we wished we had booked for longer. This small motor lodge is very close to the end of a spit of land sticking out into the harbor. If you jumped over the railing of the small back "porch" all the rooms share, more like a walkway...you would be... More

There are quite a few very nice places to stay while in Rockport. Bearskin Neck Motor Lodge is one of the best in my opinion. You will witness some of the prettiest sunsets ever. The water is right outside your door. You can open the windows and hear the waves washing through the rocks right below your porch. Very nice,... More

We just enjoyed a two night stay here and were very pleased with our experience. It was off-season and very quiet which we loved but, if you go in season, you are guaranteed a parking spot in front of the building and the luxury of being only steps from restaurants and shops. As for us, we happened to be there... More
