Peace and quiet right on the ocean is yours to have if you stay here. Relax by the pool, sit in the many lounge chairs on the beautiful grounds along the ocean or in the gazebo overlooking the ocean and enjoy a glass of wine or snack that you bring. The rooms are very comfortable in the house across the... More

Stayed for 3 nights in a room (#27) with it's own balcony overlooking the water. If you are the type that wants a swanky, generic hotel with chocolates on the pillow, this is not the place for you. But if you appreciate architecture or history, this "Old Gal" of a hotel has personality & charm. Rooms are large, manager (Mike)... More

Location and view is amazing - literally waterfront with view out to Atlantic and to town of Rockport. However for the price, I'd expect attention to detail better than average - in fact it was worse. Cobwebs hitting my face as I walk through the sitting room - ok its an old place and the inn wasn't busy. Hole in... More

Needing to be in the area for business for a couple of days, and having looked at several B&B's in the area, I chose the Yankee Clipper Inn based on other reviews and the location. Best decision I could have made. The location was wonderful being right on the ocean, and near where I needed to be. Mike was the... More

Arrived and manager was not as helpful as other reviews lead to believe: his first words were that we were early and the room wasn't ready, not rude, but rather to the point and kinda dry, not what you expect when you're arriving at a place with such overall great reputation. No big deal anyway, we all have our days.... More

This is just a marvelous B&B! The location is beautiful, the house itself is gorgeous. We stayed for 5 nights in the Red Jacket room. Comfortable bedroom opens up through French glass doors onto a private glassed in porch with wicker couches and chairs. That room then opens to a private outdoor deck. All of this overlooking the water! We... More

Awesome stay. Beautiful view. Chef Peter makes breakfast to order. Having a nice hot breakfast before you head out for the day is nice. We had our room upgraded by manager MIKE. He was very helpful with anything we needed. He gave us dinner recommendations and must sees. Overall great stay.

Honestly we were a little worried because it's an old building. Once we got inside (stayed in room 6) we were so happy. Everything is new and clean and had AC and all the amenities. Very charming - I'm picky about where I sleep and I'd stay here again.

Amazing place to get away and reconnect with your significant other. Beautiful views and many things to see in the surrounding area. Great restaurants just minutes away. Mike Barnhard, the General Manager, is quite nice, and provided personalized service for our trip - bottle of champagne and chocolates for our room and birthday celebration. I highly recommend Yankee Clipper Inn.... More
