A Great Getaway

We have stayed at The Tuck Inn in Rockport many times over the past 10 years during all seasons. Scott and Liz are like family. We always look forward to our next visit and Scott's culinary delights. Park your car and take the short walk to downtown Rockport. A marvelous inn for a week or just a weekend getaway. P & D Anderson

One of the Very Best

We came across the Tuck Inn in 2006 whilst on a New England tour - how lucky can you get - a great Inn for everything - acommodation, food, hospitality, location and, we made so many friends during our stay there, we are still in contact with them all via email, not bad for some Limeys from Tyneside in the UK. Scott & Liz are the best as innkeepers and serve up scrumptious breakfasts, full of advice on where and when to go and commit the Inn to a happy and cheerful atmosphere where we yarned the evenings away with the other guests, many of whom have become friends. We are returning there later in 2009 and are really looking forward to another dose of New England laughter and happiness. Roll on the Fall.

Very nice place and lovely hosts

We started our New England tour at 01 September in Tuck Inn, we had 2 very pleasent days here, we enjoyed the silence in the room, the excellent breakfast with lot of different homemade cakes and breads. The hosts are really nice and lovely persons, they made us fell like home all the time. A very good service is the free internet computer if you do not carry your own equipment with you. Thank you and regards from Dagmar and Norbert from Germany

Fantastic Vacation experience

My husband and I have been coming to the Tuck Inn for over 10 years. Liz and Scott are so accomodating. The breakfasts alone are worth staying here. It's close enough to walk anywhere we want to go. We missd the last three years due to the birth of 3 grandbabies, but we're going back in October and we can't wait. You can't go wrong staying at the Tuck Inn.

Pleasant surprise

We thoughrouly enjoyed our stay, short as it was. Liz & Scott are very gracious hosts. Scott's fresh baked breakfast was outstanding. This was a great place to stay to see the area.

Very Happy

My sister-in-law and I wanted to get away for a couple of days and found the Tuck Inn a PERFECT place to stay. The owners, Liz ands Scott, were wonderful, helped us find the perfect things to do during the day and place to eat at night! The place is walking distance from the downtown so we could easily avoid having to get in the car. I would definietly recommend it!
