The Inn on Cove Hill (The Caleb Norwood, Jr. House) is a 200+ year old Georgian/Federal-style home which has been (and is always being) restored, displaying beautiful pumpkin-pine wide floor boards, wood paneled halls and a lovely handcrafted front spiral staircase. The guest rooms are furnished in antique and reproduction furniture reflecting the age of the house. The innkeepers offer a uniquely New England experince in this gracious home set in the Historic Harbor District of downtown Rockport. Everything from beaches, art galleries, shops, the train to Boston and restaurants are within walking distance of the Inn. Park and walk!

We have been staying here for ten years, every fall. This summer too with our nephew. The "Innkeepers" are delightful. Access to the harbor and downtown Rockport is a short walk. The views can be awesome, depending on your room and the pricing is very reasonable. Every room is clean, pretty and tended with care. The Charles Room cannot be outdone for the vista morning and night. Loving care should be the motto here. Thanks for our wonderful stays!!!

We rally enjoyed our two night stay at the Inn. Loved our quaint room and the view from our room. A very charming old inn.

I come back to the Inn on Cove Hill every summer. It's a very welcoming place and the breakfasts with Betsys homemade muffins are exceptional! Close to everything, a perfect place for a few days away. Trying new years "first night" next year...only at the Inn. Ellen Snyder

sometimes you get lucky and sometimes blessed, my wife and I got blessed by the peace, comfort and serenity we received from Betsy and her husband. Not many places we stay that we feel totally at home, we found a gem. within minutes the stress we had was swept away like a gentle ocean breeze. Mark jamieson
