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.…
My daughter and I stayed here for 2 nights and it was by far the most comfortable accommodations of our week-long trip. The Seafarer is very well maintained. The beds were perfect, firm but welcoming. The room and bathroom (claw foot tub) were charming and had a lovely view. The breakfasts were excellent, offering a variety of choices including homemade hot and cold options. The view from the breakfast room overlooks a koi pond out the window and a breathtaking view of the Atlantic breaking on the shore across the road with a lighthouse in the distance. Cannot recommend this more and we travel a great deal.
We rolled into town and The Seafarer Inn just hours before the worst rainstorm the New England coast had seen in years. A storm that left 100,000s without power, closed the schools and roads blocked from fallen trees. Chris and his wife were mortified that the fire alarms went off during the night and might have disturbed the guests. We were grateful that safety measures were in place and working given that no one controls Mother Nature! We woke up to porch furnishings displaced by the winds and breakfast, hot, fresh, and delicious! Despite the adversity and the potential for great loss, they did not miss a beat! The room was well-appointed. The views spectacular and that breakfast without want. Will definitely return again.
Rockport is a quaint fishing village and the Seafarer Inn is located just a few blocks from the village. It is beautifully kept by owners Chris and Beth. There is a nice koi pond and sand with beach chairs outside the home. Our room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast offered such a lovely variety of hot and cold offerings. We would highly recommend this B & B if you are traveling to this area.
