“The inn has been sold and inn keepers appear to have lost interest.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2011

Having read the April 25 review and already booked for June I was a little concerned. The inn keeper was present when we arrived. Did not show us to our rooms but were given an envelope with information, registration form, and key. Breakfast was very continental without many offerings.
We asked the staff in the morning what was going on since the grounds we poorly maintained and the entire inn was open without any staff present most of the day.
Apparently the inn has been sold for the land and will be closing. It was apparent that no one had much interested in the guests any longer. The owners visited on occasion but did not acknowledge us. If you do not expect the traditional bed and breakfast experience and don't might caring for yourself this is a good priced and good location option.

Room Tip: The rooms were clean and in reasonable repair.

1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2011

We booked five nights B and B. After a 12 hour journey we arrived to a dark empty house. Our room key was in an envelope with a phone number to contact if there were problems. We went out for a meal and returned to a still empty house. Several lights in our suite had dead bulbs but we couldn't use the contact number as the phone didn't work either! Next morning no sign of anyone and no sign of breakfast though tables laid in the conservatory and kitchen. At last found one other guest who showed us a letter saying there would be no breakfasts until May!! So we drove into town to buy breakfast and supplies for the rest of our stay, However once the microwave was switched on it blew up taking with it the electrical supply to the fridge, both televisions, some lights and a heater. We rang the proprietor on our mobile phone, A very helpful man arrived but neither he nor his friend could fix the supply. We notified the proprietor that we would be leaving after the third night and asked her to come to collect payment as we would be leaving at 7a.m. the following morning. She did not arrive and next morning we waited until her two employees arrived at 8.45. They couldn't operate the payment system so we offered to pay in cash although we had already given credit card details. Of course they had no change ... and while I was waiting for my partner to return from the car about a gallon of water came through the ceiling ...
It is a charming old building with well furnished rooms but don't expect what you see on the web-site.

My husband and I went there for a few nights and were very pleased with the accomodations. We stayed in the Meadows room the first night, it was cozy,had a frig and was extremely clean. The second night we moved up to the Wedgewood which was bigger and had a kitchenette. Also very clean and relaxing.
The Halibut park was right next store and we walked over and sat on the rocky shore and relaxed both days.
Our only complaint...we wanted to stay another night but they were "thankfully full"
We will return again

We loved our relaxing stay at the Old Farm Inn. Ir is quiet and peaceful and a two minute walk into the oceanfront Halibut Point State Park with dramatic views to NH and Maine. Loved wqalking to dinner at the Lobster Pool in Folly Cove and watching the sunset. Staff and chambermaids are friendly, rooms are clean, nice widescreen tv in coomon living room..caught a great baseball game. We already boooked a mid winter stay...want to try the fireplaced room.

We booked this inn based on reviews and their website. All was as represented. They have an age limit, 8 yrs or older, we squeaked it with our 8 and 10 yr olds. The housekeeping staff was very friendly and informative. Rooms were private, clean and beds were comfortable. We walked to the adjacent and very wonderful Halibut Point Park. Quarry, tidal pools and shady walk through the trees were all gorgeous and an easy stroll. Cape Ann Whale Cruise our of Gloucester (10 mins away) was recommended by inn and was great, informative and fun. Considering the rates in the area this was a good value all on counts.

The Inn is situated well - adjacent to a wonderful state park (Halibut) and just a short car ride to the center of Rockport. The grounds are lovely and there is a feeling of tranquility there. The rooms and common rooms were clean and neat. We got great value for our money.

Our family recently visited Rockport and the Old Farm Inn. Rockport is a lovely town (Make sure you stop by Top Dog for a hot dog - worth it!) by the sea. We choose the Old Farm Inn as it was close to Halibut Point State Park - which is worth seeing. Our suite was very nice and as pictured on the website. No complaints. Best part for our kids was the wiffle ball supplies outside for guests and the front lawn which served as a field.

  • Liked — location and quiet setting
  • Disliked — service was nothing special - breakfast was pretty standard for a B&B
