Well situated in residential neighborhood , this charming historic home has wonderful ocean views especially from our third floor room with comfortable king bed. Kind and friendly hosts providing good and filling breakfast. We only had one night but would gladly return. It is about a mile from the village of Rockport and parking is a problem in this popular... More

We had a lovely stay in the Loblolly Room at the Seafarer Inn in late November. The Inn is clean, friendly and well-run by a kind and helpful pair of innkeepers. The room was clean, spacious, had beautiful views of the ocean. Between 8-10 am, the hotel offered a very good breakfast with fresh cut fruit and berries, bacon, pancakes... More

We have stayed in Rockport several times, while you need to drive into town this is a super location with friendly hosts. Great breakfast which varies each day and all day coffee and tea. Great value.

We stayed at the Seafarer for 4 nights in October. We hadn't realized we had a third floor room until we got there. The stairs were a bit daunting after a long drive and carrying heavy suitcases. But once we got up there and got a wonderful night's sleep, we wouldn't have wanted anything else; the views were magnificent! Chris'... More

Thank you for the very positive review. We are happy to have been your fiancé's first Bed and Breakfast experience and hope we are not the last. Every B&B is different. We like a more casual approach to breakfast, so we serve a "help yourself" style for 2 hours in the morning. We don't like alarm clocks and schedules when... More

We stayed at the Seafarer only one night but would have liked to stay longer. It is located near the water (lots of ocean views) in a quiet neighborhood in Rockport and a short drive to town. The room and bed were comfortable, breakfast was all we could have wanted, hot or cold and very good. Neighborhood was good for... More

Thank you for your review. We do have a great neighborhood for walking. Most of our traffic is made up of joggers, dog walkers and bicycles. Our house is across the street from the cove, so every room has an ocean view. We hope you can come again and we especially hope you can stay for a few more nights... More

My only regret is that we only stayed in this lovely inn for one night. We were welcomed by Chris as soon as we arrive and went to our room called "Pebble Beach".

An absolutely great location and a great B&B. The sunrise view from our room was fantastic. The hosts could not have been nicer. The room was very comfortable and the breakfast was outstanding. Wish we could have stayed longer.

Great unobtrusive yet helpful hosts in a lovely B and B. Actually rose to capture the sunrise in the morning, which was sublime. Totally relaxing spot to spend four week nights in early September.
