We wanted to relax on the last two days of our hectic two week holiday. Just hoped for a little B&B by the sea but we found a small piece of paradise. It was like stepping back in time to a more peaceful age. The room looked over the sea and was very clean. The king size bed was really comfortable. Breakfast was buffet and lots of choices. The walk into town on the Old Garden path is beautiful and takes about 15 minutes. On route is a wonderful beach and just a bit further is point where you can see Rockport harbour. We were able to chill and relax. The owner Nancy and all the other staff made us feel most welcome. If we had found the Seaward Inn at the beginning of the holiday we would have definitely stayed longer.

- The Seaward Inn, nestled on the outmost edge of Cape Ann, has taken many shapes and forms over the past 65 years while remaining in the Cameron family. Although the main building and restaurant were sold in December 2013, the building formerly known as Spruce Cottage or Gulls Nest will now be available for weekly rentals for the 2015 season. Guests can choose from our Cottage, Lover's Cove ( King Bedded unit), or Gully Point (Suite with Deck).

There is also be an outdoor gas grille for your convenience and pleasure. The Seaward offers a refreshing, rustic seaside alternative to vacationing in Rockport with four unique choices of accommodations. Guests who visit The Seaward comment on the restful atmosphere, while still being close to a wealth of attractions including gorgeous nature preserves, great shopping, boating, whale watching, museums, and sandy beaches. We also offer bicycles to enjoy the winding rocky coastal roads and pathways with stunning vistas and breathtaking sunrises and sunsets. The Seaward is located on Marmion Way, known for its lovely homes, gardens and ocean views. Here you can relax to the soothing sound of waves lapping the rocky shore and distant fog horn while watching the lobster and sailboats pass by. We are a short & scenic mile to downtown Rockport which can be accessed along an ocean path. Along the way you will pass Old Garden Beach; a good spot for a dip, and "headlands" for an outstanding view of Rockport Harbor.
