We were fortunate to catch a perfect week for weather in the Boston area. We were also smart to research lodging in the Rockport area. Thankfully we came upon Captain's Bounty Motor Inn. At CBMI every room has a breath taking view of the ocean with an over look onto Front Beach. Note: The rooms are not air conditioned. But when we stayed, it was over 95 degrees and we never felt uncomfortable sleeping. Keeping the balcony door, bathroom window open, and the overhead fan on low, a nice breeze was always present. The bed was a queen size and very comfortable. The staff here, as with all people in Rockport, were very friendly and helpful. We rented a kitchnette and the maid service would even clean dishes and pans if we were in too much of a hurry to do it. There is free ample parking, a bit of a tight squeeze, but easy enough to maneuver. This area has so much history that it's almost impossible to take it all in. The town of Rockport is quaint with many interesting stores. I guarantee that everyone will find something to buy to take home. The town is filled with a bustle of people every night. There are many restaurants in town, from very reasonable to high end. Make sure to stop at the little Ice Cream Store in the middle of downtown. If you want the best coffee, I found in the area, better than Dunkin' Donuts ;), stop in at The Coffee Shop on the West end of town. I would not hesitate to return to Rockport and stay in CBMI again.
