Halyard Guest House

20 Atlantic Avenue , Rockport, 01966 USA (Show map)


Enjoy the waterview and simple elegance of this traditional, coastal Massachusetts guest house nestled in the activity of a busy working harbor, and experience the ambiance of this quaint town. Directly across the street from the harbor; relax on the porch while you watch the lobster and sail boats come and go. View the spectacular sunsets on the water, and listen to the musical sounds of the sea. Appreciate the beauty that has drawn so many artists and crafts people to this area. It is only a short walk to town down Atlantic Avenue which spans the inner harbor. There for your enjoyment are the many galleries, fine restaurants, and shops of Rockport. I welcome you to this lovely region and to the beauty and peace of the Halyard Guest House.
