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

My husband and I spent our anniversary at The Yankee Clipper Inn. Mike, the inn keeper had a surprise waiting for us upon arrival that he set up with my husband weeks in advance. The Inn was clean and well maintained and Mike made breakfast each morning. We stayed in the Red Carper Room which had a comfortable Queen bed... 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.

I woke up this morning, went outside and stared at a spectacular ocean view from the Yankee Clipper Inn. What a way to start a day! I stayed at the Inn last November and returned for a summer experience at the Inn. The Inn was clean, Mike was great, and the view was wonderful. I could not stay for Mike's... More

No problems with reservations, even as a solo traveler. Manager wasn't overly friendly, but was checked in quickly. Room & bathroom very clean, lots of windows, great view from the balcony on the 3rd floor. Air conditioned. Not a lot of parking right next to the Inn - very steep driveway. Breakfast was just ok. Best part of the Inn... More

In spite of a prepaid reservation, we were told by the manager when we arrived that he wouldn't honor our reservation because my husband has a service dog for his Parkinson's Disease. In fact we'd just come from the amazing organization the raises and donates these mobility dogs to people in need, where we visited for a training update. He... More

I am writing this letter of apology in regards to the incident of August 14, 2014. I was unaware of changes regarding the Americans with Disability Act regarding service animals, specifically not being able to ask for documentation of a service animal. I want it on record that the guest elected to cancel their reservation and not stay and weren't... More
