We wanted to get away from the city and stay in a quiet place by the ocean for the weekend. This was the perfect spot. When I booked the room I didn't realize that there was an incredible large sunroom with the most beautiful view of the ocean. There was a comfortable day bed, tables, rocking chairs, lamps, and enough room to create a relaxed space. It was very peaceful and quiet and the only thing we heard was the ocean lulling us to sleep and the birds singing with the sunrise. For lunch we drove five minutes into the center of Rockport, got fresh seafood for take out, and returned to our room to eat it on the porch that connected to the sunroom. This was another pleasant surprise. It was secluded, relaxing, and private: exactly what we wanted! We will definitely be back.
