“Nice surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

Had the good fortune to book this hotel..Altho built in the 50's the decor is fabulous.So used to typical beach front rooms that are dark and musty ..this was a great surprise...The newly decorated rooms are stunning and immaculate...Bathrooms a little small but minor in scope of all that was wonderful....Gary the owner handled my reservation with charm and grace....We loved staying here and will be back as soon as possible...Charming little cemetery abuts with wonderful bits of history..and a one minute walk to the beach....Coffee ready in the morning..What more could one want?????????.

Room Tip: Talk to Gary...They have 2 locations and after chatting with him we picked the one close to beach

We recently stayed in the Eagle House rental house. It exceeded our expectations, especially considering we are a family of five. The house is very clean and well maintained. It's proximity to Bearskin Neck and Front Beach make it a perfect location. The staff and owner were very welcoming and accommodating. We plan to return.

We were in Rockport for a wedding. We spent Friday and Saturday night at the Eagle House. The location is superb - less than a block from the main drag in Rockport. It was clear our room had recently been painted. It was very clean. The bed was super comfortable. The bathroom was tiny, but the shower had great water pressure. Having a microwave and decent sized mini-fridge was a huge plus. We had a corner room on the 2nd level and did not hear any noise from the church next door (having the A/C on probably helped a little with that). The only negative comment I have was that housekeeping emptied our trash but never remade our bed.

Eagle House Motel is located within walking distance of Bearskin Neck, which is where you want to be when you are in Rockport. The price is right and it is clean. The "private" outdoor sitting areas are a plus. One odd thing: The shower stall door was so tiny, my average-sized husband just fit. With my plus-shaped physique, I had to literally squeeze in. Fridge and microwave are a huge plus. Owner made coffee in the a.m.

We just got back home after another great week at the Eagle House guest house. We tried it last year and loved it so much we had to go back. The house itself is the perfect size, 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, full kitchen all clean, and neat. My favorite part is having my own patio to watch the sunrise with coffee or sunset with a cocktail. The grand kids love being able to walk to the beach or to get ice cream. Walk to the shops and art studios, no fighting for parking spaces!.Short drive to 2 other beaches. The Eagle House guest house has become our family vacation place for years to come! Thanks Gary!!

Booked this place and was looking forward to sitting on deck having a drink after golf. Arrived in rockport unable to find hotel rang and discovered we were in rockport Maine and hotel in rockport massechutis. Apparently 3 hours away in wrong direction. Thankfully owner cancelled our credit card even though there is 8 day cancellation policy. Would recommend this place to anyone due to this action from a understanding owner

We enjoyed our stay at The Eagle House. Great location. Walking distance to everything. Our room was clean and the beds were comfortable. The shower/toilet area was not updated, but the rest of the room seemed very new. Nice to have a kitchenette, top. The owner was very pleasant and helpful. Would definitely stay here again. Wished we could have stayed longer.
