“Not worth the price”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2011

This B&B charges over $200 a night. The only justification for that price is that it's on the water. Our friends had a room in which the Air Conditioning didn't work -- and this was during a heat spell. Their room was insufferably hot. When my friend told the owner, the owner commented that oh, sometimes the AC units stop working. No discount was offered or any other help! Our room was serviceable but at 5am the smoke alarm went off a few times (low battery), and the sliding screen door was broken (and obviously had been for a long time, since there was rust where the missing parts should have been). What is the point of being next to the ocean if you can't leave the door open because the screen that keeps out insects is broken?
The continental breakfast was the usual, low-rent cereal, bagels, and store bought pastries -- what you'd expect at a cheap hotel, not somewhere that you paid over $200 a night. The coffee pot ran out and owner couldnt' be found for over 15 minutes at 8am, and since breakfast is only served 8-10, someone shouldbe on hand for such things.
Eden Pines is serviceable at best, but the price should be half what it is.

You won't be disappointed. Excellent service. The innkeeper makes you feel like your home. The views amazing relaxing and perfect. The dining area had all you could ask for because they pay attention to detail. Room was comfortable clean smelled good! We are coming back to this inn again it's on top of our list! Only one thing is the rosd the inn Is located on needs major repair do 4 wheel drive suv got us there but it's hidden away which we love away from crowded streets!

We wanted a place to spend a special weekend alone and found just the location on the rocky coast overlooking crashing waves and breathtaking views. The charm of the dinging room with good food only added to a memorable weekend. Couldn't be more grateful. Thank you.

Breathtaking views! Excellent service! Peaceful location! If you're looking for a beautiful oceanfront inn, Eden Pines is the place to go. We stayed in room number 2 wich has a great view on the ocean (all rooms do!!!). The innkeepers are very nice and knowledgeable of the area. This place is really worth the price if you're looking for a private and quiet place to stay. Beaches and tourist attractions nearby.

My husband and I stayed at the Eden Pines Inn in July 2007 and again in June 2008. Both experiences were exceptional! Eden Pines is situated right on the edge of the rocky Rockport coast, and you can't possibly beat the view from any room at the Inn. Our first stay was in the Beacon Suite (the only room on the top floor of the Inn) and our second was in the O'Day Suite. Both rooms were wonderful, though we did miss the extra space of the Beacon Suite during our second stay. (The O'Day Suite was adequately sized, but it was not quite the experience of the Beacon.) The innkeepers are friendly and helpful. The Inn is clean and tasteful. One of the rare getaways during which our favorite thing to do was simply to sit on our own balcony and enjoy our private slice of "eden."

Our first visit to Eden Pines Inn truly exceeded our expectations. Our view of the Atlantic Ocean included twin lighthouses on a nearby island and lobster fishermen checking their traps in the early morning.
Watching the sun rise between the two lighthouse was one of the highlights of our trip. We had good weather in November, but we understand we happened to be lucky. September or October may be a better time to visit. Our hosts were helpful and hospitable. We hope to return to one of the best bed and breakfasts we have experiences.

have been there twice. first year great, as we drove up, my wife said it took her breath away. as close to the ocean as you can get.
2nd year, ownership changed at the time we were there.....still good, but ironing out details. we werent going to go back this summer, but we miss it so much we are trying to get in at the last minute. hope it works out and the wrinkles in ownership are ironed out. not on the beaten path, but only minutes by car to the action.
