We had a very good time at this inn. Room was spacious, bed comfortable, breakfasts very good. Chris and Beth were friendly and very helpful. Not only making suggestions for things to do and possible activities, but driving us to nearby town and offering to drive us to town. Would definitely stay there again!

The Seafarer Inn is a fantastic place, right on the ocean. Beautiful view, great large rooms, good breakfast, quiet, and the rooms have everything you need (hair dryer, fridge, coffee maker, etc.) in a B&B. Why only 4 stars? "Friendly" and "welcoming" are two attributes that are missing here. I have travelled and worked in hospitality for many years, and... More

We stayed on the third floor in the Long Beach room and had the most spectacular view for a wonderful sunset. Oh, and the most wonderful bed! Luxurious. The pond with the Koi fish was right below one of our windows. The breakfast the next morning was phenomenal-- French toast, coffee, juices, eggs, yogurt, fresh-cut fruit, English Muffins, and you...

This was a really nice bed and breakfast. We went with another couple and they had a nice large room with a sitting room and a beautiful breeze with views of the water. They told me that they loved it, we saw it and we loved it. We had a large room with water views and a little efficiency kitchen... More

Thank you for the great review and recommendation. All but one of our rooms (Loblolly Cove) have the electric fireplace. They are very popular in the colder months. We hope you get a chance to visit again and hope you can stay longer next time. More

Such a beautiful inn, beautiful spot, on a beautiful street. Lovely owners, very clean. Welcomed with cookies on the coffee table; nice touch! Don't have a negative thing to say. Will certainly be back in all seasons.

My husband and I stayed here for a little get away for our anniversary and what a wonderful choice we made for accommodations. Chris, the inn keeper, was most hospitable and everything in the Inn was done to perfection. We had a room on the 3rd floor with a spectacular view of the ocean. The room was quite large, very...

Thank you for the wonderful review! We are always happy to offer an 'early bird' breakfast upon request. I'm glad you mentioned the whale watch. Gloucester offers a few choices and they are a great way to really enjoy the ocean. Spending the evening by the koi pond is one of our favorite things to do, as well. Hope we... More

Dynamite!!! We wanted something with all the comforts of home with an ocean view and were blown away by this place. The breakfast is spot-on and the rooms were comfy with an amazing view.

We can't wait to have you back! Thank you for the very positive review. We are about a mile from the center of Rockport on a quiet street, so you get the views without the 'hustle' of downtown. We look forward to next time! More

Our stay was perfect. This place was so clean, welcoming, comfortable, and multifaceted we didn't want to leave. In fact we were the last ones to check out.

While the room was clean and quite adequate, the ambiance was cold and unwelcoming. We saw the inn keeper at our arrival and then never saw anyone again. Breakfast was totally do-it-yourself Hampton Inn style. In fact, Hampton Inn is much more service oriented. This was not the B&B experience we are used to having.
