What a gorgeous area! The Inn is charming, Inn owners very hospitable and the views amazing. Sitting by the koi pond, sipping a glass of wine and listening to the calming waterfall.... Too nice for words. We didn't even mind it that our bathroom required us to go into the hall. We'd certainly go back if we revisit the area.... More

Thank you for the great review! We love to hear from our guests. Thank you for the room tip on the bath. It's good for guests to know that the Loblolly Cove room is the only room with a 'down the hall' bathroom. (It is a private bath, never shared.) All of our other rooms have attached bathrooms. But the... More

After finishing up work in Conneticut, my husband and I decided last minute to drive up to the Cape Ann area for a three day getaway. SInce it was August, most local B and B's were booked through the week. Luckily, the Seafarer in had one vacancy. Both my husband and I were shocked by the quality of our stay.... More

We hope you do get a chance to come back! Thank you for mentioning the views. We do have ocean views from every guest room and the two rooms on the third floor offer the most expansive views. The house is across the street from the ocean. But close enough so that you can hear the waves crash on the... More

When the weather's good it is a very pleasant walk from downtown Rockport to the Seafarer Inn. The views from the Inn are lovely; it's location is great. Our host was friendly, courteous and helpful, even carrying my wife's heavy suitcase up to the third floor. Our room there was comfortable and nicely equipped. It included a refrigerator and small...

Thank you for the very nice and thorough review. We call the furnishings and decorations, "beach house casual." We work hard to keep everything clean, comfortable and relaxing. We're so glad you liked our great weekday continental breakfast, which, along with the coffee cake and assorted cereal, includes a yogurt bar with lots of toppings, fresh fruit and 4 kinds... More

We spent 2 nights at The Seafarer Inn in July and greatly enjoyed our stay. The Old Garden Room is very comfortable (especially the armchairs!) and the whole atmosphere at the inn is very relaxing. There was a wide range of quality products at breakfast and it really would be hard to beat the view you get when eating your... More

we visited Rockport for a wedding, and The Seafarer Inn was on a recommended list sent with the invitation. We picked The Seafarer Inn based on its location, away from the centre of town and near the sea, and were very happy with our choice. Because of a change in our travel plans after making the initial reservation, so we... More

Thank you for the great review. It was our pleasure to have you here and we were very pleased to be able to offer you the move so that you could extend your stay. As you mention, we are about a mile from town in a quieter area where you can hear the waves roll over the rocks. We hope... More

Not our first trip to Rockport, but this was our first stay at the Seafarer Inn and it won't be our last. We had the Front and Back Beach Room - which had water views and were really very nice and made for a relaxing stay. We loved sitting out by the koi pond. We love the location on Marmion... More

Thank you for the great review. Our goal is to make our guests' vacations "peaceful and relaxing", so we were very happy to know we succeeded for you.

Just spent a perfect four days at the Seafarer; would give six stars if possible; gorgeous location, views, and great breakfasts; the owners obviously love the Inn; miss sitting in my "spot" at the koi pond. Stay here, you'll love it!

Our group of 6 adults, 2 teenagers booked the second floor for a long weekend. The rooms were very nice, with great views of the water.

What a wonderful review. Thank you. Good room tip. The Pebble Beach room has an antique claw foot tub with a European hend held shower.

Quite frankly, you don't need a room in the Seafarer Inn. Just sit on the porch and enjoy the views it offers - we could have sat there all day long watching the ocean, listening to its sounds and breathing the salty air. That being said, the Seafarer Inn is located just about 1 mile from the town and an... More

A casual, charming home by the sea... Relax on the front porch and watch the boats, breathe in the salt air, and listen to the waves. Walk a few steps to historic Straitsmouth Cove, and explore tide pools or relax on the sand by the water. We are happy to lend you a beach chair! Explore beautiful Rockport, a quaint seaside village with lots to see and do. Start by walking Old Garden Path along the ocean to Old Garden Beach and then to the Headlands for an unforgettable view of Sandy Bay. Stroll to charming Bearskin Neck and visit art galleries, quaint shops, restaurants, churches, and historic architecture. Visit the Rockport Art Association and attend a concert at the Shalin Liu Performance Center, home of Rockport Music's world-famous Chamber Music Festival.
