A casual, charming home by the sea... The inn featurs a front porch with ocean views and a koi pond surrounded by adarondack chairs on a pebble beach. Plenty of places to sit, relax and watch the boats, breathe in the salt air, and listen to the waves. Every room has an ocean view and private bathroom. Amenities include AC, TV, refrigerator, hair dryer. All but one (Loblolly Cove) room have electric fireplaces. Walk a few steps to historic Straitsmouth Cove, and explore tide pools or relax on the sand by the water. We are happy to lend you a beach chair! Explore beautiful Rockport, a quaint seaside village with lots to see and do. Start by walking Old Garden Path along the ocean to Old Garden Beach and then to the Headlands for an unforgettable view of Sandy Bay. Stroll to charming Bearskin Neck and visit art galleries, quaint shops, restaurants, churches, and historic architecture. Visit the Rockport Art Association and attend a concert at the Shalin Liu Performance Center, home of Rockport Music's world-famous Chamber Music Festival. Whatever you plan on doing during your visit, we hope you stay with us at The Seafarer Inn.

Recently spent two very comfortable nights at the Seafare Inn. Innkeepers Chris and Beth were available to answer questions, give suggestions and provided us with a fantastic breakfast. Would definitely return to this lovely inn.

We enjoyed four nights with Beth and Chris at the Seafarer Inn. Excellent breakfasts, incredible view, comfortable room. It is the best place we have stayed in Rockport and will certainly stay there when we return. We should add that the outdoor patio and chair are very comfortable with an ocean view.

Great location, quiet neighborhood that is walking distance to the town center. Our room had fabulous views, was very comfortable wirh soft fluffy towels. The Inn is inviting with lots of indoor or outdoor seating and dining. The koi pool and fire pit table were relaxing, the breakfast changed daily with lots of fresh homemade options.

This is our third time staying here as we love the quiet peaceful location. We usually are on the second floor but were given a third floor room. We weren’t sure we could handle it being an older couple but the owner helped us with our bags. The room was wonderful, with a glorious view of the ocean and very comfortable. The pond and waterfall is so relaxing to sit by, plus we were treated to the delight of viewing a mama duck and her 3 babies floating nearby. The breakfasts are always delicious. We honestly hate to leave, but hopefully we can visit again!

My husband and I stayed 3 nights and we could have not been more pleased. The location is fantastic and scenic and relaxing. The inn is pristine and the inn keepers very friendly. Breakfasts are thoughtfully prepared and the buffet style makes it easy to please any appetite. Village is a mile walk away and has numerous tasty restaurants. Great spot. Highly recommend 😀

We spent 6 nights at The Seafarer Inn, celebrating our 52nd anniversary, and touring Cape Ann. We also took a commuter train to Boston ( easy) as well as venturing to Salem and Marblehead. The Inn is comfortable and inviting, with a large wrap around porch (perfect for viewing the harbor while eating the delicious breakfasts that hosts Beth and Chris prepare). The location is convenient to the shops and restaurants in Rockport. The week went by way too fast!

We stayed two nights in the Old Garden Room on the first floor, which was amazingly quiet despite being near the front door. The accommodations were casual and comfortable, and the innkeepers very accommodating and hospitable. Breakfast was ample and delicious, and was served outdoors (or in) overlooking the bay and koi fish pond. Just a few miles from town and the iconic Good Harbor Beach, the inn is conveniently situated on a relatively quiet road. Everything was great, except the TV was tiny but we weren't in our rooms long. We definitely would recommend The Seafarer Inn to others and we hope to go back again next year!

My wife and I stayed here for three weeknights in mid-May, and everything was delightful. Chris and Beth provided welcomed us personally and provided information and recommendations on dining. Our room was spotless and comfortable. Everything worked perfectly, and the wi-fi was good, despite it's being a difficult location for connectivity. We roamed the general area of Cape Ann, but frequently ended up dining in Gloucester, which has many excellent options. Breakfast at the inn was excellent, in spite of the fact that the pandemic prevented them from setting out the buffet spread that so many reviewers have raved about. One of our favorite activities was sitting out on the porch, watching the water. Outdoors by the koi pond was nice too, but the wind was a bit chilly most days. Overall, the three days passed all too quickly. We hope to come back another time.
