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. The Continental Breakfast was wonderful, diverse and fresher than fresh. Honestly these folks know how to do a Bed and Breakfast! The Ocean across the street and walk to Bearskin Neck was... More

Thank you so much for the wonderful review. We do value and appreciate our guests! Peaceful and relaxing are what we are going for at the Seafarer, so we are so happy you found it so. Rockport is a special place to relax and unwind. We enjoyed meeting you and hope you can visit again soon. More

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.

Thank you for your review. We are 'disappointed' that you didn't enjoy your visit. We advertise a continental breakfast and we do set it out for two hours for our guests' convenience. We include coffee cake, yogurt, cereals, fresh fruit, oatmeal, cooked eggs, bacon and French toast or pancakes with a variety of syrup all set up on a sun... More

We'd just come from a B and B in Bar Harbor that was terrific (Maples Inn), thought we'd try the number one rated one in Rockport. Here's the low down: Host: Matter of fact, not friendly. Not cold, just no "umph". House/Room: Room was spacious, shower extremely small!, view partially blocked by a house being built on the ocean, the... More

We are sorry you were disappointed with your one night stay. Rockport is lucky enough to have dozens of B&Bs, each with its own personality. From décor to breakfast presentation to location to amenities offered, there are choices for every taste. We understand it is often difficult to find exactly the inn that meets all your requirements in our very... More

We stayed one night at The Seafarer Inn in June. We were in the Long Beach room on the third floor. The room was very comfortable: corner room with windows on two sides, nice view of the the sunrise early morning. The Seafarer is in a quiet location away from downtown. Breakfast was timely and nicely done. We recommend the... More

My sisters and I were taking our mother to Rockport for a surprise road trip. I called the Seafarer a few months before our visit to inquire about accommodations-our mother uses oxygen and climbing more than a few stairs is difficult for her. Chris took my reservation for two rooms for only one night! Our mother was ecstatic to say... More

Thank you for your review. We were so happy to be able to host your 'return to Rockport reunion!' With regard to access, we do have four stairs to reach the front porch and only one first floor room. The rest are upstairs. We were so pleased to have our first floor room open when you needed it! As you... More

Spent one night in Rockport, MA on our return trip from Maine to Boston. Chose Seafarer Inn based on research. Easy, quick check-in and we were off to downtown Rockport within 10 min. About a 20 min walk to downtown, either along foot paths along the bluffs or through the neighborhood streets. The street the Inn is on is very... More

After having traveled for 17 hours, we felt coming home and enjoyed the Old Garden Room for two nights. The breakfast was a big surprise. I especially enjoyed the fresh fruit salad. It is so qualm around that nice place. The housekeepers are so friendly. If you look for a quiet peaceful place to stay, go to Seafarer Inn.
