Stayed in the Pebble Beach Room for 3 nights, room is actually nicer and larger than it appears on the picture. Beth and Chris are lovely hosts, very accommodating. We hope to come back! U and D from Switzerland

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. As to traffic, this weekend, we have front row seats to the Blackburn Challenge rowing race. The boats in the race will pass Straightsmouth Island right in front of our yard. We... More

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. Breakfast out on the porch, looking at the ocean and the koi pond, was a wonderful way to start the day. Our host and hostess were very helpful, offering beach chairs and kayaks for... More

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. Some people absolutely love the romance of it and others prefer a stand up shower. (All of our other rooms do provide a stand up shower.) It is one of my favorite rooms for the... More

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 very nice property locating within walking distance of several nice beaches and seashore sites. Rockport itself is close also but we found it to be an easier drive and park. The Seafarer is under newer ownership with some nice touches. The breakfasts were basic but satisfying and the new wraparound porch was a great place to sit and read... More

We appreciate you taking the time to write a complimentary and thoughtful review. All of our rooms have ocean views but you are correct that the first floor room (Old Garden Beach Room) has a limited view. It's good for people to know that before they book. The rooms on the second and third floors have bigger, more open, ocean... More

We celebrated our 25th anniversary there and had a very nice room on the top floor with wonderful views out the windows. It is about a mile walk to town but a lovely walk along the coast. Good breakfast and gracious host. Only complaint were the pillows which were foam and hard. Recommend down pillows which they may have but... More

We were so lucky: We had the best weather and the best accommodation. Thanks to Chris and Beth for their hospitality. The Seafarer Inn is a great place to relax, just sit by the pond and watch the kois and listen to the waterfall or sit in the porch and have a coffee and look at the sea. The lovely... More

My husband and I spent the entire first week of June at The Seafarer Inn. The location is spectacular, with breathtaking views of the ocean from any room. Also, a 5 minute walk in any direction gave us views of lobster boats nestled in a cove, waves crashing on rocks , and the twin light houses in the distance. The... More

We only stayed one night, but we'd definitely stay longer next time. We were in the lovely Loblolly room which looked over the koi pond and you could see the ocean. The bathroom was private, but just down the hall. The neighborhood is nice and quiet, but downtown Rockport is a short drive or mile walk from the inn. We... More

So glad you liked the Loblolly Cove room! It is a sweet room. The bread is called "Anadama" bread and is native to Rockport. It is one of our specialties! We love sharing our home with our guests. Hope you get a chance to return. 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.
