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. The Inn was very clean and warm, our 5 night stay in the room flying Cloud was a dream. Our room was large, clean and... More

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

My family and I stayed at the Yankee Clipper Inn during a weekend in March. We really enjoyed our stay. Our room (Ariel) was very relaxing. We enjoyed the views from the room and the surrounding area. Mike, the innkeeper, was super nice and super helpful. We would stay here again.

The views were fantastic an the location was great. The gentleman who runs the inn (I think his name was Mike) was really friendly and nice, but didn't quite know when to stop. He also was really pushing us to do a tripadvisor review, which is super counter productive. The waffles were fantastic, but the rest of the breakfast was... More

We booked 5 of the 8 rooms at the Yankee Clipper and could not have made a better decision. It was like spending the weekend at home. The rooms were spacious and all had beautiful views of the ocean. We congregated down in the breakfast and living area as if it was our own home. Mike, the caretaker could not... More
