For over one hundred years, The Seafarer Inn has provided guests with a quiet, secluded destination in one of New England's most picturesque locations--Rockport. We love our oceanviews and the quiet, yet convenient seaside neighborhood location.

It is so easy and a unique option offered at a traditional B&B. Our location offers a variety of activities. You can always relax on our wrap-around porch with your favorite refreshments and a book and take in the serenity view of the ocean and our Koi pond. Meander down Old Garden Path to Old Garden Beach. Walk a few more minutes and you're in the heart of Rockport, home of dozens of shops, art galleries, restaurants and other attractions including the Shalin Liu Performance Center featuring year-round musical entertainment. There is Front Beach, Sandy Bay Yacht Club and a place to rent a kayak. Explore, swim, relax, be happy. Hope to meet you!

Amazing inn in beautiful location

4.6 on June 02, 2017

Where to start? A beautifully updated comfortable B and B, with large rooms and updated bathrooms in many rooms. Delicious continental and warm breakfast in a room with amazing ocean views. The hosts are cordial and cheerful-even on an unusually cold morning, offering ideas of things to do in town. The views are amazing, each room has a better one and our bedroom on the third floor felt like being out on a boat with ocean on two sides! The location is great, with less than a 15 minute walk into town along a beautiful ocean path, with countless galleries and restaurants in town. This is an amazing place at a reasonable cost for the amenities present!

Bed was old and not that comfortable but the views were magnificent and everyone was very friendly. Continental style breakfast was fine but not enough room for all guests to eat at the small indoor tables on a colder morning.

Nice Romantic Weekend

4.6 on January 18, 2008

We had planned to stay for 1 night, we felt the place was so nice, we made it 2. The innkeepers are very accomodating, and flexible for your needs. Very nice view of the shore, nice neighborhood, off the beaten path, quiet, birds in the thicket, nice place to let your mind relax. Very clean place. Very good breakfast, nicely catered.

It really is seaside

About the innkeepers

We bought the inn in 2013 fulfilling a long time dream. Long time Rockport residents, we love the charm and history of the town and old homes. Old house restoration is one of our hobbies. Another is raising Koi fish. Our oldest is over 18 years old! In our off hours, we love to kayak along the rocky coast, or golf on any of a number of scenic Cape Ann courses.

Signature Dish

The Seafarer's Fresh Fruit Feast
No matter what time of year a eyecatching cut up fresh fruit plate is the center of the morning buffet for B and B guests. It may include various seasonal fruits, plus year-round available pineapple, melons, berries, oranges, banannas and on occasion, organic frozen berries. The kind of offering you seldom make for yourself at home. It is delicious with our organic granola and yogurt and a slice of the artisanal bread offering of the day and other buffet extras. Sundays we serve our Rockport special Anadama Bread.
