I woke up this morning, went outside and stared at a spectacular ocean view from the Yankee Clipper Inn. What a way to start a day! I stayed at the Inn last November and returned for a summer experience at the Inn. The Inn was clean, Mike was great, and the view was wonderful. I could not stay for Mike's... More

In spite of a prepaid reservation, we were told by the manager when we arrived that he wouldn't honor our reservation because my husband has a service dog for his Parkinson's Disease. In fact we'd just come from the amazing organization the raises and donates these mobility dogs to people in need, where we visited for a training update. He... More

I am writing this letter of apology in regards to the incident of August 14, 2014. I was unaware of changes regarding the Americans with Disability Act regarding service animals, specifically not being able to ask for documentation of a service animal. I want it on record that the guest elected to cancel their reservation and not stay and weren't... More

I just am off another stay at the Yankee Clipper inn. This time I tried the Sovereign of the Seas room. It's on the third floor, is VERY spacious, bright, and has a private porch! This is a family room (two beds). I liked the closet, which had a window and shelving. The bathroom had a round window like in... More

Stayed at the Yankee Clipper Inn and was absolutely impressed with not only the room but the service with the staff at the Inn. Mike made sure our stay was welcoming and a positive experience.

I stayed at the Yankee Clipper in late April, my first stay at a B&B. From the moment I arrive I knew that I had made an excellent choice. I was greeted warmly by Mike and throughout my stay he was very pleasant and helpful. His recommendation of a "local" place was exactly what I was looking for - The... More

Thanks for staying and taking the time to visit the Inn. You had the great fortune to stay in 2 separate beautiful rooms during our stay which is an awesome way to see more and different views of the ocean. I hope you come back and stay again when in Massachusetts. More

We came across the Yankee Clipper Inn by pure chance. We had made an online reservation at the Inn next door, but when we got there the innkeeper told us that he didn't have a room for us. What a shock! Luckily Mike was able to accommodate us. And in the end we were more than happy that things turned... More

We stayed two nights in "Lightening" - booked on the strength of TA reviews alone it proved to be a lucky choice. There are no bad bits - there was a problem with our room which Mike brought to out attention straight away and gave us a discount. It didn't impede on our stay. Lightening is small but didn't really... More

I stayed at the Yankee for my son's wedding which was in Gloucester. I felt like "royalty". The "flying cloud" was magical. The innkeeper "Mike" was extremely helpful getting me around to where I needed to be & the "Belgian" waffles were to die for! The grounds are lovely & the view is awesome! I would definitely stay here again.... More

Every year in April or early May, we travel from Iowa to spend a week at the Yankee Clipper. We go during the off-season because it's quiet - and because we usually have the house to ourselves (except on weekends). We always stay in the the Flying Cloud room, which has a small enclosed porch looking east to the Atlantic... More
