This stay was exactly what we were hoping for. Right off the beach this cozy cottage fit my family perfectly. We reserved a two bedroom Cottage that came with a comfortable living room and a well accessible kitchen. Every morning we were greeted with a breakfast basket in front of our door. The cottage came with a reserved parking spot... More

Reviewed July 22, 2016

Blue exceeded our expectations! This is our second time staying at the Inn and the first since the new renovations and ownership. From start to finish the staff was friendly and helpful. Upon arrival each unit receives an iPad to research excursions etc. Nice touch if you don't have a smart phone or your own device. Our room was on... More

The views don't get better than this! Blue opened this summer under the new ownership, as part of Lark Hotels and it is a lovely boutique hotel. The staff is welcoming, friendly and ready to help. The breakfast baskets are delightful and innovative in presentation, we looked forward to them daily. We will be regulars. The oceanfront cottages could not... More

Stayed in one of the cottages, which was pretty, but for the extra space you miss actually being able to see the water (cottages are on the opposite side of the road from the Inn) so it feels less beachy. The Inn had recently reopened after a renovation during our stay, but the same issues previously mentioned in reviews still... More

We had the best weekend at Blue. Our king 1 bedroom cottage was wonderful! Spacious. Full kitchen. Fireplace. We practically had the hot tub outback to ourselves. Just across from the beach. Shannon at the Inn was very friendly and answered any questions we had. We were able to easily bike into Newburyport to the state park, two breweries for... More

Blue was just what we were looking for to get away to the ocean for a few days for a birthday celebration without traveling too far. A beautiful beachfront property! We had privacy yet felt pampered. Our room was spacious and nicely decorated with a fantastic view of the beach and ocean. We enjoyed walking out onto our deck which... More

We had been here prior to Lark management of the inn 6 years ago and had a beautiful stay. This stay was as good and better in many ways. The view is indeed spectacular and even as local residents from Newburyport, as much as we could come and enjoy it any day of the week, staying at Blue, and waking... More

My husband and I traveled to Blue to celebrate our 2 year wedding anniversary. We expected a beautiful stay but what we got was SO much more!

I went with a dear friend of mine for a extended weekend and was impressed. The hotel décor is beautiful with a beach theme, with lots of blue accents. The only thing that we did not like was the fireplaces were not on and we were not able to switch to a room that had them working. Yes, it was... More

There was no better way to enjoy the final days of summer than spending in an evening in the sprawling Oceanview Lark Suite, with it's panoramic views of the ocean, private balcony, and steam shower. Service is on-point, and breakfast is delivered to your door in the AM - It is also worth nothing that they are open year round... More
