Our first visit to Rockport was truly enhanced with a stay at Changing Tides. So glad we chose this particular inn. It is conveniently located within walking distance to town, shops and restaurants. During busy times, this is critical as parking spaces fill up quickly.
Stephanie greeted us and showed us around the inn. We were given suggestions for the best places for dining and then we were off on topic tangents we both enjoyed. Why anyone would choose a hotel over a B&B when visiting a new town is something I question- especially when someone like Stephanie shares her living space with such a welcome. The inn is bright, cheerful and homey and the incredible breakfast is prepared fresh by Stephanie who is truly a chef in disguise!
Thank you Stephanie for your welcome. And remember... "I agree with you". Lol.

There are B&Bs that are nice and then there are B&Bs which offer a Bed and a Breakfast that are hard to describe in words, as the first is enjoyed in sound sleep, making it impossibel to speak and write, and the second enjoyed in tasting a daily newly designed and freshly prepared breakfast, making it impossible to speak, in everything well taken care of by our hosts' Jay's and Stephanie's kind hospitality. Stephanie is Rockport's Breakfast Wizard: she asks that you come down at 8:30 in the morning. You can stay in bed a bit longer, of course, but you will then miss a sublime breakfast (don't worry, it will be waiting for you). But Changing Tides B&B offers the mouthwatering experience of enjoying a fresh breakfast right out of the oven or from the stove - taste and ingest it, and you will forget everything, and perhaps even everyone, around you as you are enveloped in culinary morning delight your taste buds will never forget. You can go back to bed after breakfast if you want: by the time you are done breakfasting, your bed and room and bathroom are clean and ready. Otherwise, there is plenty to explore in and around Rockport, and Jay and Stephanie are happy to provide good tips and suggestions for day trips, interesting sites, and fine places to have dinner (you can have home made cookies before you venture out for dinner - they are waiting for you on your room). And when the day comes to its and with a cup of tea or other beverage and good company on the deck, you climb the stairs, go into your bedroom and you into your comfortable bed for a night of sound sleep - to be awakened by the most wonderful and delicious scents coming from the kitchen in the morning... This is a Bed and Breakfast where both bed and breakfast are simply sublime.

Changing Tides is a lovely place to stay, clean, cosy and comfortable with lots of space to relax and enjoy the quiet town of Rockport. Stephanie and Jay were incredibly helpful with local advice for eating out and scenic places to visit and even gave us freshly baked cookies on arrival. Our room, the Captain's Quarters, was quiet, clean and warm, with a very comfy bed. Sitting outside on swings or on the porch was great, and breakfast was amazing. A perfect stay.

My wife and I decided to return to Rockport for our fortieth anniversary. She researched and found Changing Tides with one room left. Stephanie and Jay provided a welcoming, comfortable and beautifully appointed home. My wife is a vegetarian and Stephanie was on the mark for taking care of her needs with delicious breakfasts. When we returned in the afternoon homemade cookies were waiting for us. Jay offered advice on restaurants and sites to see. This was an excellent choice and we look forward to returning.

We took a last-minute trip to Rockport, needing to get away and smell the ocean air. The Changing Tides Bed and Breakfast was the perfect place to live out our fantasy. It's a sweet old home within easy walking distance of the village of Rockport. And it's an even closer walk to the beach. Stephanie, the hostess, couldn't have been nicer. She's a terrific cook, who provided a delicious breakfast. And in the afternoon, she left a plate of fresh-from-the-oven chocolate chip cookies in our room. The room was nicely furnished and very clean. If we return to Rockport, we hope to find a room (there are only 3) at the Changing Tides.

Room Tip: There were only three rooms, so it's hard to say.
