Stephanie and Jay were phenomenal hosts! My wife and I went to Rockport for the first time, we checked in late and were welcomed promptly and shown our room that had a beautiful theme, decor and all amenities one needs when traveling. The bed was a sleep number that put our current mattress to shame. Suite had a private bathroom and scenic stand up shower with dual shower heads, great for couples. The breakfast was delicious both days, savory and sweet combinations and wholesome local ingredients make you really appreciate the difference between changing tides and anywhere else. Also, as Muslims who do not eat bacon, Stephanie cooked everything for us with turkey bacon on her own and was so understanding. The fire pit at night after a long day was tranquil and serene. Sitting with Stephanie and Jay and exchanging different stories, passion for food, travel and life pursuits were refreshing and made us feel right at home. Stephanie's garden is expansive and after realizing my love for tomatoes, they told us to have as many cherry tomatoes from the garden as we like, organic and fresh, dont even have to wash them. In retrospect, it was one of my best experiences traveling and I'm so happy I found a place I will certainly be going back to time and time again! Absolutely priceless!

One of our favorite Airbnbs yet! We hesitate to offer this review for fear that Changing Tides will be eternally booked when we next wish to visit Rockport and this wonderful Airbnb.

Stephanie was a great communicator pre-arrival and offered flexibility given the uncertain time of our arrival. Everything was perfect on arrival, even the fresh cookies from the afternoon and bottled water. Stephanie's recommendations for dinners were right on. However, do NOT skip her homemade breakfasts as they are delectable, sourced locally, and better than any you will find in town -the best of all the Airbnbs at which we have stayed thus far. We tried to make reservations with her for dinner, but she said we'd have to come back in the fall for a Saturday night stay when dinner may be an option (my guess - well worth it).

Stephanie and Jay were very gracious and fun to speak with and learn of their journey. Being from the area, they also had all the tips for regional touring (e.g. Schoonerfest and restaurants in Gloucester) and local Rockport jaunts (e.g. Old Garden Beach, the Headlands, and particular artist galleries). The location of Changing Tides could not be more perfect for exploring all things Rockport, and Cape Ann for that matter.

You cannot go wrong with Changing Tides when in Rockport.

P.S. Even their friends from afar, such as the antique delivering Dave from Peru, Indiana, are a joy to get to know over a loquacious breakfast. We were going to call him a "cool cat" but we didn't want to scare anyone with feline objections away from this wonderful Airbnb. Enjoy!

My wife and I stayed for the weekend to celebrate our wedding anniversary (a gift from our daughters! :) It was a memorable trip. Stephanie and Jay are very friendly, kind hosts. It was a real pleasure to meet them and chat with them and other guests by their fire pit in the evenings. Their home (now fully used as their B&B) is beautiful, very clean and always inviting. Stephanie is an amazing cook; her breakfasts will blow you away! They clearly love what they do and it really shows. Short walk to beaches and Bearskin Neck shops & restaurants. We loved it and we're sure you will too :)

Room Tip: We stayed in Captain's Quarters room and it was very comfortable; full bath right outside the door -- definitely recommend!

We were very lucky to end up staying at Changing Tides! The location is right in downtown, the home is so cute, and Stephanie and Jay were so nice and accommodating. The room was exactly what the pictures showed, the place was super clean, no dust bunnies to be found!
We were only there for one night and will be back!

Room Tip: Try to get the master bedroom- it looked awesome!

Stephanie's B&B was wonderful! It far exceeded our expectations. If the location wasn't enough, the breakfasts each morning were out of this world. The cookies in the afternoon were a nice (and delicious) surprise as well : ). We definitely recommend staying here next time you're in Rockport!
