Our first time in Rockport/Gloucester - this place was great. Breakfast was great and included in the stay. Room was clean, neat, comfortable - with a lovely balcony overlooking the ocean. Very nice - definitely will visit again. Thank Mike and staff for a wonderful stay!

The inn was lovely, gorgeous view from our room, even pulling up outside it was spectacular. It was clean, and Mike, the manager,seems very involved and is helpful for little things that come up. The tea and coffee available at all times were very nice and we enjoyed. The food was fine, though not great, but was nicely served by... More

We returned to the Yankee Clipper Inn after a few years and it was just as great as I remembered. The staff is wonderful, the breakfast was delicious, but what I really love is how the buildings feel historical, yet so pretty and comfortable. The views are a sight to see. We were there to get a little relaxation time... More

Thanks for your fantastic review. We are very fortunate to have a tranquil place that is close enough to downtown Rockport, but also has everything you need to hang out just on the property (gazebo, pool, chaise loungers). I hope you do get a chance to visit again in the fall or winter as it is beautiful as well. More

We returned to the Inn and decided to stay in the Bullfinch House since it hadn't yet opened when we last visited. It did not disappoint! The house was beautifully restored with tasteful period furnishings and woodwork befitting its 18th century origins, but also included all the modern amenities. We stayed on the first floor with a lovely shared patio... More

Thank you for your review. We took back over the Bulfinch House (an 1840 Historic home built by famed architect Charles Bulfinch) in 2014 and kept the historic tradition but added some more modern features that have made the house truly beautiful now in 2016.

It is easy to see the quality that used to be, but unfortunately we found the hotel far from what it was advertised. The grounds, views and lobby are lovely but the rooms are definitely in need of updates. Originally we were scheduled to stay in the house across the street but the smell of fabreeze and the dinginess of... More

I'm sorry you found your stay different from what was advertised not directly through the Yankee Clipper Inn. You booked your room on a online travel agent site not directly thru the inn and therefore booked a class of room not an exact room. We have 15 rooms and all 15 are completely different as I discussed with you when... More

Nice older inn to stay in when visiting Rockport. It is a short walk away from the beaches and shops but it is right on the rocky shore. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Breakfast was very good, made to order omelettes. Staff was helpful and friendly.
