The inn has a great spot on the cliff looking over the harbor, excellent views. The gazebo, pool, and lounge chairs on the yard are very nice. The public areas inside of the inn are quite charming. Our room, "lightening" was very nice with only the lack of air conditioning and the very small bathroom detracting from our praise. The... More

Let me start off by saying that Mike and Peter and the rest of the staff made our stay delightful and worry free. I travelled with my wife and daughter and found the inn to be exactly as advertised. From the check in upon our arrival , we knew the stay would be ideal.. The Inn itself is charming and... More

This lovely old building sits right on the edge of the coastline and if you get a sea facing room the views are great. There is an element of faded grandeur going on, it needs a bit of TLC in places but it is beautiful. There is no lift but staff will help you with luggage. There is a huge... More

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

Thank you for your recent stay and your review. I'm glad you enjoyed staying in our Bulfinch House across the street from the main inn. Room 1-5 and room 7 all have great ocean views but the porch that is shared by rooms 1 and 2 is very nice. I hope you are able to visit Rockport and then inn... 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

Thank you for staying and reviewing the inn. You are very correct to say we aren't a run of the mill hotel/inn. I have a great staff, facility, and breakfast that creates a wonderful experience for our guests. I'm glad you were able to experience it, and I hope you can come back and visit again. 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.
