Four of us stayed in the "Captain's Quarter's" for a beautiful weekend in Fall 2020. The Captain's Quarter's offers full amenities with a fully stocked and functional kitchen, two full bathrooms and a circular staircase leading up to the master bedroom. The master includes a full bath with stand up shower, huge walk in close,t and gorgeous views of the ocean. The downstairs living room is spacious and includes a pull out sleeper sofa, a sliding door out to a long and private balcony. We were greeted with complimentary cookies from a local company and bottles of water as well as instructions regarding parking and wifi. Beach access is very convenient and the location is a very quick and beautiful walk to the downtown shops and restaurants. We found the room to be very clean, functional and nicely decorated. Being up on the third floor, you will climb somewhat steep steps to reach this room location, but the view is the best from the top! Becoming engaged at this property was the icing on the cake for me, and we plan to visit frequently! Side note: we met the owner of the property on our last day and he as well as every staff member we encountered was very pleasant and accommodating.

We decided to stay overnight in Rockport on our way home from Gloucester.
This place was so cute and super friendly. We love to support small business.
We had a 3rd floor room Overlooking Front Beach.
We enjoyed being able to have the heavy room door open and use the screen door locked which created wonderful air flow, while we were out on our balcony...both at night and in the morning.
Each room is individually decorated with nautical wall art, which you don’t get when you stay at large chain hotels.
The season is short, so prices may seem a bit high, but if you consider that you’ll pay $40 per day to park at one of the larger beaches in the area, the room price was well worth it.
Free hotel parking, friendly staff, clean and fun room, unbeatable balcony view, beach w’ Lifeguard at your fingertips, short walk to shops & restaurants at Bearskin Neck....it’s our new favorite staycation getaway!

We spend every 4th of July at Captains Bounty on the Beach. This year was very different due to Covid but it was still wonderful. We arrived to an immaculate room and chose to not have cleaning services during this stay. They made it easy to leave our towels and trash outside to be replaced with clean fresh items. We felt very safe. There were no 4th of July activities but still lots to do on the neck and from our room. The two decks beach and street side offer so much to see and as much sun and breeze as you desire.
The staff is amazing. So friendly and accommodating. We have stayed in Rockport for 47 years and we feel so happy to be able to return here every year.

What a gem! Don't let the word motel fool you. Went for a girls weekend and stayed in their " lobster " room. The room was pristine and the staff was constantly cleaning the handrails, doorknobs, ice machine etc. Felt very safe during this pandemic. Situated right on the beach where there was plenty of sea-glass to search for. The girls in the office were fantastic, All of Rockport's restaurants and stores were a very short walk away, just park your car and go. Will absolutley be back!

The Captain’s Bounty on the Beach Hotel is in a great location with downtown Rockport just a short walk away and rooms with a great balcony view of the beach. The kitchenette also came in very handy. Would recommend to anyone looking to stay in the Cape Ann area.

We recently spent a few days in Rockport and stayed at the Captain's Bounty on the Beach. I can't say enough about how welcoming and accommodating Maureen and her team were. Every employee I encountered was pleasant, enthusiastic and very invested in ensuring we had a great stay. The rooms all have incredible sea views, with great amenities; in addition, they are spotless. I highly recommend the Captain's Bounty on the Beach to anyone seeking to spend time in Rockport/Gloucester.

Everything about Captain’s Bounty is first class. We love coming here for an occasional weekend get away. The owners, Joe and Meg, have spared no expense at making this hotel a first class experience. The decor is amazing. The rooms are always spotless and the most amazing thing is to wake up in the morning looking out at the ocean just outside your door. Every room has that same amazing view. It is just a short walk to the center of town to the amazing art galleries and restaurants. No need to move your car out of the parking lot. Just in love with this place

What can I say? This place is amazing! Fantastic view! Each room has a completely private balcony. The only thing that would make it more perfect would be if they served meals, but there are so many other places within easy walking distance, that this isn't really an issue either.
We had room 1. The room is designed perfectly, the entrance door is on the parking lot side of the building. Once in the room, there is a short entrance hall (with a coat rack), the bathroom on the left, the mini-fridge and a microwave on the right, then the main room, with a sliding door to the balcony. This effectively blocks any road noise, and all you hear is the ocean! Most peaceful night's sleep I've had in ages! The bed is comfortable and the room is a good size.
Can't wait to visit again.

Went to Rockport July 18th thru July 26th, stayed at Captains Bounty and loved it!! They do a great job, spotless rooms, great staff. We were very comfortable, they took all the precautions due to Covid but did not make us feel uncomfortable in any way. The town of Rockport is really doing an outstanding job and i must commend them, they left no stones unturned to make sure that we all felt very safe and happy to be able to enjoy some sense of normalcy!!! Thank you Rockport and especially CAPTAINS BOUNTY!!!!!!!

My girlfriend and I decided to take a quick beach getaway (2 nights). We selected Captain's Bounty for the beach access and the balcony's available in all rooms. We were NOT disappointed but very pleasantly surprised and satisfied. Everything was clean and well decorated. Maureen at the front desk helped us out a great deal. I made an error with my booking and she fixed us right up. She and the team were so accommodating and friendly.
The beach is lovely and the views from our room were amazing. All rooms have a fridge, they offer 2 free bottles of water and some delicious cookies. Besides. the beach, the location is absolutely perfect to enjoy the Bear Neck area and all of the cute shops. Be sure to stop by Brother's Brew for your coffee, donuts and pastry fix. We will definitely return to Captain's Bounty and Rockport. We loved it.

We are retired now but, when our children were young we stayed here. First and second floor allows children. The beach is right there, private balcony ocean side. This beach itself is perfect for children. Check out the web site, it shows true.
