We just returned from a delightful vacation in Rockport, MA where we were guests at the Seafarer Inn. The Inn is well managed, very clean and nicely decorated. Most importantly, the bed was very comfortable and it was quiet! The breakfasts varied daily, and were all very tasty. We especially loved the freshly baked "Anadama" bread which is a local... More

We loved our stay at the Seafarer Inn! We spent a weekend in the comfort of this charming B & B. The Seafarer is a short walk to the shops of Rockport. We enjoyed walking the path along the water to enjoy dinner in town. Our room was lovely and very comfortable with a view of the water. Chris &... More

We checked in at 8:45, fifteen minutes before the innkeeper went to bed, but Chris was cheerful and helped us carry our bags in. The breakfast was fabulous with pancakes, eggs, cereal, yogurt, fresh fruits and many beverages. The koi pond with a little waterfall was a delight to listen to from our room. Everything was very clean. The decor... More

Lovely quiet spot. Perfect breakfast and very helpful hosts. Beds comfortable, beautiful walks nearby. Small shingle beach for impromptu swim. Short drive to village centre and restaurants. Free tea, coffee and home made cookies on tap. What more could you ask for?

This was our first stay at the Seafarer, although we have been to Rockport several times, and we would go back to this cozy little inn in the future. We stayed in the Garden Room off the living room, which is spacious and has big windows overlooking the water. The neighborhood is quiet and pretty, and we enjoyed walking the... More

We were only there for a day, which was not enough. The settings is gorgeous, the Inn is homey and beautiful. The rooms were neat, well appointed and comfortable. Breakfast was delicious, especially the egg cups (a must try)!! The hosts were friendly and accommodating. The town of Rockport is very nice and only a 20 minute walk from the... More

The SeaFarer Inn is an oasis -- a place of warm hospitality and terrific breakfasts (best-cooked bacon ever!) set on a rocky stretch that's perfect for morning walks. This was our second visit, and we'll be back!

Really lovely B&B. I don't think the photos do it justice - it is absolutely delightful. Loved the cookies and fruit on arrival. Very comfy bed, nice selection at breakfast. Aircon worked well. Watched a lovely sunrise and read my book on the Adirondack chairs.

So happy you enjoyed your stay here! We are right across from the ocean facing east, so we get a front row seat to enjoy sunrise every day. We agree with you that reading a book by the sea is one of life's great pleasures. We hope you can come back and visit us again very soon. More
