We had a delightful one night stay here in the Ariel room with a fantastic ocean view. The Inn is beautiful and has a great deal of charm, is very well appointed and is in a perfect postcard location. The assistant manager, Peter, was so welcoming and hospitable. We enjoyed a scrumptious breakfast overlooking the sea in the sun filled... More

Breathtaking views of the north shore coast, fantastic room, unbelievable friendly service...just an overall amazing experience! People say B&B's are passe'...not this place...our Inn Keeper Pete went out of his way to make our evening incredibly comfortable. First of all when I booked, I made a mistake on the reservation day of making it a week later than I needed...jan... More

Stayed for 2 nights. Inn is lovely, woodwork inside is spectacular, staff freindly, en suite room for $207 a night a great price with continental breakfast included in our stay. Drawbacks, I now live in vermont, I am from Massachusetts. With that being said, I enjoy the old homes in the area of the inn, but the neighbors are on... More

Thanks for staying with us and taking the time to write a review. I'm glad you enjoyed the inn but of course very sorry to hear you felt the neighborhood was "crowded". The inn resides in a residential neighborhood and at this time of the year there are projects occurring (winterizing and some minor construction) taking place. I'm glad to... More

We spent three wonderful nights at the Yankee Clipper. We had a wonderful ocean view with sun coming up and gently waking us each morning. The breakfasts were delicious, prepared by a professional chef. The service in all respects was outstanding. I highlt recommend this inn.

This is a small historic Inn with only about 8 or 10 rooms. The inn is absolutely beautiful with old world charm. Being directly on the water provides for breathtaking views. Breakfast is served each morning on a porch area overlooking the water. One thing to keep in mind is that the rooms while charming are VERY small. (Our room... More

Thanks for your review. Our standard rooms in our 1840 Bulfinch and 1929 main home are smaller with lots of character, but our ocean view rooms/suites are actually very large and I would definitely recommend when you come back and stay to book one of those as I think you will be very impressed with the size and view.

If you are staying in Rockport and want the B&B experience I would recommend Yankee Clipper Inn. Mike, the general manager, is very accommodating. The view from our two rooms in the main house were wonderful. Breakfast was cooked to order, you are able to sit at your own table and the view is perfect. Have experienced B&B's and realize...

Our stay this year was once again one to put into the family album. Yankee Clipper and host Mike and his staff make you feel so welcome and at home in this beautifully maintained old seaside inn. It is always a pleasure to take a peaceful step out of time at the Yankee Clipper. See you year old friend!

This B&B has a lot going for it. The location is the best possible with ocean waves crashing on the rocky coastline just outside your window. Beautiful sunrises & the occasional lobster boat compliment this already magnificent view. It's a quick drive to town & a quiet escape when you're done. The building inside and out is ornate 1800's architecture.... More
