On a cold winter's weekend, we had a warm, romantic getaway. Our room featured a great ocean view! The innkeeper was very hospitable and accommodating. The staff helped with dining plans. We definitely would not hesitate to go again and will recommend highly.

I just came back from my stay at the Yankee Clipper Inn. The weather was great and the grounds were beautiful! I stayed with my family in a room called Sovereign of the Seas that had a king and twin size bed. It was very spacious with a patio on the 3rd floor looking at the Atlantic Ocean. Mike and his staff or outstanding. they helped me with dining options and served an awesome breakfast that included eggs, bacon, and Belgian Waffles. Thanks for a great stay!!

My husband and I stayed here this week and thoroughly enjoyed our experience. We have enjoyed our previous stays in various ocean-side Rockport inns but the view we had here was the best! Ask for the "Volunteer" room if you like sliding glass doors out to a huge deck that overlooks the ocean. You can gaze at the ocean horizon from the bed in that room! The inn is an interesting melding of old and contemporary and is, apparently, undergoing some changes in what the inn offers (outdoor pool will probably be open on Memorial Day but it looks like the bistro restaurant will not be re-opening at least for now). The inn does offer a very limited continental breakfast served on a glass-enclosed veranda with gorgeous views. You can go on-line and view each of the rooms and get a pretty good idea of what to expect. Mike is the new manager at the inn and he was very welcoming and helpful. We are looking forward to going back soon for another visit!

I checked into the Yankee Clipper and was greeted by Chris who offered to carry my bags and show me to my room. The next morning, I met the manager Mike who served me breakfast and recommended a great restaurant for dinner. The room was beautiful with a queen size bed a sun porch and a balcony right on the ocean overlooking downtown Rockport. It was certainly a large room for under $200. Needless to say I will be returning again during the summer for the service and the beautiful scenery right on the ocean. Thanks you for a great stay!!

We had a wonderful overnight visit at the Yankee Clipper Inn to celebrate a special wedding anniversary. The setting was gorgeous, our room had a beautiful ocean view, was large and spacious, and the staff couldn't have been friendlier. Our breakfast in the sunny dining room that overlooked the Rockport coastline was amazing: granola with yoghurt and strawberries, delicious cheese omelets, bacon, whole-wheat toast, orange juice, coffee.... we didn't have to eat another meal the whole day. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and can't wait to return.

My girlfriend and I have stayed at this place 3 times in the past year. It has everything you'd want in a bed and breakfast in Cape Ann: beautiful ocean views and bay views of Rockport, a friendly attentive staff, clean and beautifully appointed rooms and reasonable rates. Breakfast on the enclosed veranda is sweet no matter the season. This experienced traveler votes two thumbs up!

We had a wonderful weekend away during the shoulder season. Everyone on the staff was very friendly, the room was very comfortable, the view from the porch was beautiful.

We chose Yankee Clipper as the last stop on our vacation. A place to stay for the night before we flew out of Boston in the morning. It was perfect! Boston is a straight shot away, and we really enjoyed exploring the towns of Rockport and Gloucester nearby. The food in the area was exceptional (we recommend The Lobster Pool for seafood), and charm was abundant! The innkeeper Tina was so helpful and accommodating. She even gave us a room upgrade because it was a quiet night at the Inn. The views are exceptional of the rocky coast. So very peaceful. The rooms themselves have beautiful furnishings, the beds were very comfortable, but the Inn is in need of an update. The wallpaper is peeling and carpets are very old. I think it could be given a facelift while still maintaining the charm of an old seafarer's mansion. Breakfast was good, but not exceptional or gourmet (i.e. pancakes were just plopped on your plate w/ no presentation, and fruit was obviously the frozen variety). All in all though, I would definitely stay here again! Warm, welcoming place in a wonderful setting.
