This charming property has a beautiful location overlooking the ocean. We had a spacious room on the top floor which shared a huge balcony space with 2 other rooms. As we enjoyed unseasonably mild weather for late December this allowed us to make good use of the outside space. Our cosy room was furnished in a style totally in keeping... More

Web-site looked great but our one night stay at the inn was disappointing. The view from the Volunteer Suite on the upper level was good and the grounds looked nice but the suite was small and confining. Also, although it was off season, the deck area was not private and in season guests of three rooms share the outside deck.... More

You gotta' love old houses that creek and groan. You must love the charm of the antique styling and quaint amenities that only an old home can provide. Bed and Breakfast stops are so different from place to place and this one was very nice. The host lives on the property and greets you like a friend making you very... More

It is very hard for me to write a review of the YCI as I have a very long and personal history with it. I just spent a beautiful weekend there with my family. I would say the Clipper, which had once been a Grande Dame, was now a faded beauty. You still can't beat the views and location. It... More

The Yankee Clipper is a beautifully maintained property, the rooms are well appointed and the breakfast is good. However, none if this really matters because the most important thing is the view. We stayed in the Volunteer room which opened on to a balcony that literally overlooked the waters edge across the bay to Rockport. It was breathtaking and we... More

The Yankee Clipper Inn's website together with glowing reviews on Trip adviser and having been a holiday destination in the past for for world class icons such as JFK, John Lennon, Bette Davis and Paul Newman made it a definite contender for our two week visit to New England from UK this year. Such perceived luxury and acclaim together with... More

We had a fanastic time. The General Manager, Mike Barnhard, was very personable and assisted us with anything we asked to make our stay comfortable and memorable. We had a great room with breakfast every morning (cooked to order) which we took down to the edge of the ocean to enjoy. We will definitely return next year! Book early. Check... More

Manager Mike made us feel very welcome as soon as we arrived. Our suite was lovely with a great view overlooking the ocean. A very comfortable place to be. The maid/room service was exceptional. Coffee and mint water was available 24 hours a day and was much appreciated and the breakfast was very good. Excellent restaurants a short drive away.... More

We selected the Yankee Clipper Inn for its spectacular view and we weren't disappointed. The service was excellent, Mike was a gracious host and all of our out of town guests were charmed by the spectacular grounds. We will remember this special day forever.
