“NICE STAY!”
Reviewed May 31, 2014

In our first New England stay, we were welcomed nicely by the Chris and Beth and made to feel at home. The room was spacious, the bed comfortable and storage space was plentiful and the room was refreshed daily The views...aaahhh, the views. The views were spectacular out of both sets of windows. Both in the morning to watch the boats go out and the sun rise or in the evening or late at night to watch the boats return. They were in the middle of remodeling the front porch but it wasn't a hindrance. The breakfast selection were great as were the morning chats with Chris on where things were located or what he may suggest. The koi pond had just been installed and we could enjoy them from our room. This was a fall visit but we were able to sleep comfortably with the window open and the smells of the sea and the sound of the waves, wind dependent all night. The only thing we could complain about was that at the time, there was no TV and the WI-FI signal was weak on the top floor. I see from other reviews that the TV issue has been resolved. This wasn't much of an issue since we were late returners anyhow. I CAN'T WAIT TO GO BACK!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Long Beach which was on the top floor and offered 2 different views.

We hope you do get a chance to come back! You should see the new porch! And we have finished the landscaping around the koi pond. And yes, we have installed TVs in all the rooms. We also added a wifi booster which helps with the signal. Of course the views have not changed! Thank you for the wonderful review and we hope to see you again this summer!

We had the most amazing stay at the Seafarer Inn. The Innkeepers were welcoming, the room was the best room in New England with a beautiful view of the ocean. The room was private and had it's own bathroom and electric fireplace as well as refrigerator and microwave. The breakfast was delicious with home baked muffins and fresh fruit salad. The porch and community living spaces are comfortable and charming. The Innkeepers have done a wonderful job making it feel like you are at home, we will be back!

This is our first experience with a Bed and Breakfast and this was absolutely the best place to stay. The view from our window was breathtaking and calming. The rooms are very charming and private. We had a refrigerator and microwave. They even had a hair dryer and iron and board in room. You have your own bathroom/shower. Each room had cable TV which was nice when relaxing in our room. The breakfast spread in the AM was great; everything you could want. Coffee is always available. I even found snacks when you needed a little something in the afternoon (fruit). The owners Chris and Beth were very welcoming and informative as to what to see and where to eat in the area. The town of Rockport was very quaint. A lot of cute shops and art galleries. The Shalon Liu Performance Center is open year round with great performances. Halibut Point State Park is close by and a great place to hike and visit.
I can not stress enough that this is a great place to stay!!! We hope to get back to this area soon and we will definitely will be staying here again.

Innkeeper Chris was a great host. He and his wife are working to make this place special. Upgrades to porch and outsides bring much positives to the experience. A pond out back, a porch to sit and close proximity to a million dollar view. The room was sufficient for our needs. We were the only guests the night we stayed and despite this the breakfast was outstanding. Fresh fruit, yogurts, cereals, kurig coffee! Nice fare. Some upgrades to come- maybe brick paver backyard will push this to even higher highs.

We are happy you enjoyed your stay! We are having a great time working on this beautiful, antique house. We just finished adding a beach area with views of both the ocean and the waterfall in the koi pond. Hope to see you again soon.

We had an absolutely wonderful, comfortable stay at The Seafarer Inn. Picture perfect view and setting. Short distance to a very quaint Rockport town. Delicious breakfast served on the patio. Gracious proprietor. You will not be disappointed with a visit to The Seafarer Inn.

The Seafarer Inn is beautifully located in a quiet, peaceful neighborhood, with gorgeous views and easy access to the shops in Rockport. I knew this because I live in Rockport. But only when I needed to find accommodations for a young family visiting from Colorado, did I discover what a GEM the Seafarer really is!!! When we had a big family reunion, I needed a place for the overflow. Chris and Beth put my Godson and his wife and their two children in the "Front & Back Suite", which you can see on their website. For the next 5 days, I heard rave reviews from the children and their parents. They said the Inn is so welcoming and pretty, Chris and Beth are wonderful, the rooms are comfortable and cozy, and the breakfasts are yummy! The children called the Inn "home". Everybody relaxed (me, too!). They can hardly wait to come back… and in the meantime, I'll be recommending the Seafarer to everyone I know! Heartfelt thanks!!!
PS: I accidentally clicked "excellent" for "swimming pool on the rating options. As far as I know, there's no swimming pool, but they DO have a little koi pad which delighted the children!!!

We love hosting extended family for reunions, weddings and other gatherings. We are very happy to hear your family enjoyed their stay. They were delightful! You are correct, we do not have a pool, but we do have a koi pond right off the breakfast room, with over a dozen mature, colorful koi that put on a great show for our guests. Thank you for your review and future recommendations!

The Seafarer Inn is the "essence" of a true New England Experience... We had the pleasure of spending an overnight at the Inn on April 26. What a beautiful, welcoming, immaculate home that made us very comfortable like we were at home. Our room was warm and cozy with a fireplace that added to the ambiance of the room. The living room and dining area was very charming with beautiful views of crashing waves on the rocks along to coast. Innkeepers, Chris and Beth go over and above to make sure their guest are comfortable and having a wonderful stay. The breakfast offered in the morning was delicious with yogurt, fresh fruit, muffins, waffles, cereals, juice, coffee, etc. We had a relaxing morning sitting at a table by the window enjoying breakfast while watching the fish in the Koi Pond. The Seafarer Inn is in a great location, close to the ocean with water views from every room and close to shopping in downtown Rockport at the quaint little shops the town offers. I would highly recommend staying at this lovely Inn; I am looking forward to our return visit in the future.
