My husband and I stayed overnight at this peaceful and most comfortable B&B in order to attend a concert at the Shalin-Liu hall. Accomodations were fantastic, warm, comfy bed and linens, spacious suite, deep tub and a most delicious breakfast. The hosts could not have been nicer!!
We have longtime connections to Cape Ann and found this beautiful B&B perfect for what we need. The location is great and the antiquity is exquisite. Comfort, good food, and friendly people should all be in capital letters.
Charming inn with lots of space to relax. Perfect location with easy walk into the village for restaurants. Our hosts were attentive, informative, and great cooks. Thank you so much for a relaxing few days.
Helene and Dan are wonderful hosts!! The inn is very convenient to local sites and Dan and Helene are extremely helpful with great tips about the area. The freshly made hot breakfast was delicious!! Would definitely stay here again!!
Thank you to Jen and Ted for a wonderful stay in Rockport. Ted's recommendation to stop at Halibut State Park was excellent. So glad we made the stop on our way out of town. The location of this Inn was exactly what we needed. We could walk everywhere in town. Would stay here again in a heartbeat!
This was our first time staying at the Addison, but will not be our last! Our Innkeepers, Jen and Ted, were the most hospitable hosts we have ever encountered, and we travel a lot! Our room was perfect, and we felt totally "at home" from the first minute. Our only regret was that we could not stay longer. But we already have plans to return in the Spring! Don't miss the opportunity to stay here!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Addison Choate. It met our expectations for the room because there were pictures online and we are familiar with old inn style lodging, not because they were lacking in any way. Everything was immaculate and we had all the amenities we needed. The innkeepers are very warm and gracious and made our stay a wonderful experience.
Our recent 4 night stay at 7 South Street Inn was a pleasant surprise. Deb & Nick Benn are gracious hosts, providing beach amenities (towels, umbrella, sand chairs & free beach passes). If pool time is a preference, a large inground pool is located on the property. The choice of two breakfast seatings offered delicious well prepared meals. We will definitely return.
My husband and I stayed for 3 nights this past week, mid-August. The Inn is cozy, impeccably clean, with old world charm and delightful hosts. An absolutely delicious breakfast was served every morning on the porch. We were just four blocks, an easy stroll, to the shops and restaurants and another couple of blocks to the sea. A perfect location, and definitely a great value.
We had just one night to get away and couldn't have asked for a better stay. It was a lovely, quiet, peaceful hideout for us when downtown Rockport was crowded. And when the crowds died down, we enjoyed the very quick walk to the waterfront. We hope to come again and stay longer!
The Beech Tree is a lovely home, and Dan and Helene are very welcoming. Only three rooms so it is an intimate setting. Breakfast was well done, but I am not a fan of K-cup coffee, which was the backup for regular and only source for decaf. The Inn is a few blocks from the center of Rockport but on a main street. Very convenient and a great community to walk in. The gardens, the porch, the living room and sitting area are all well appointed and so peaceful. Hope to get back there again. Highly recommended.
Ted & Jen were wonderful hosts. Ted was very helpful in helping us haul all of our luggage upstairs. The breakfast was not only delicious but also beautifully presented. The Addison Choate is conveniently located, so that driving a car into town is not necessary. Nights are quiet and restful at the Addison Choate. I would highly recommend staying at this Inn.
My wife and I came here for a short weekend getaway. The room was comfortable, and had everything we needed. The hosts were very enjoyable, and helped us plan out some fun activities in town (this was our first visit to Rockport). The inn was within walking distance to many of the downtown activities- so a great location too. I'd highly recommend staying here- we had a great time.
We stayed for a week from 2 Aug to 9 Aug 2017. Let me start by saying we had a truly excellent time. Our party was me, my wife and our teenaged daughters. Firstly, location. Rockport is a lovely small fishing town towards the northern tip of Cape Anne. It has a great range of amenities for holiday makers and scores for me over Cape Cod in being less busy. The Inn is very well situated about 5 mins walk from the Bearskin Neck area of the town where the nicest shops and restaurants are. It's an eighteenth century federal/colonial style house which was formerly a school. Facilities: our rooms were very well appointed. Comfy bed, air conditioning, cable tv, bathroom with toiletries, coffee machine fridge, wifi etc. There is also a lovely little pool, perfect for relaxing by when you've had a hard day eating fried clams and ice cream. The breakfasts were amazing, delicious fresh fruit, freshly baked breakfast pastries, a gourmet main course, as much coffee, juice etc as you could want. The hosts and staff a brilliant and really made us feel welcome and helped make the stay superb. Deb, Nick and Jim couldn't have been more helpful and had great ideas for things to go and places to see. Can't recommend this place highly enough!
I cannot recommend this B&B highly enough. Both the interior and exterior of this elegant home are so beautiful with many wonderful choices of rooms & spaces to enjoy during your stay - a sunroom with windows all around, a breakfast room with bay window, a garden patio, a porch with rockers, etc. Our room was bright & cheerful with a spacious personal bathroom across the hall. Helene & Dan are superb hosts - very friendly, informative, and helpful in every way. You will be delighted with their home and hospitality, and the fact that you can walk to everything in town.
We stayed just one night—all we could manage away from our twin daughters—and couldn't have asked for a nicer stay. During peak tourist times, we just hung out in our lovely room and out on the quiet patio. When things calmed down, we took the very short walk down to the heart of Rockport. We hope to return for a longer stay!
This very cozy inn blends perfectly with this small town and scenic environment; the owners are very welcoming and make you feel at home. Make sure you spend some time in the "reading room" behind the main living room... to read or have nice conversations with friends and/or family.
Dan and Helene were wonderful hosts for a nice get a way without kids. The breakfasts were delicious and the cookies at night were a surprising treat! This quant little bed and breakfast was everything we were looking for and more. We would definitely revisit if we were in the area!
The inn itself is a lovely property. We loved the historic charm! It is beautifully maintained and immaculate. Even more importantly, Jen is an exceptional innkeeper. She warmly welcomed us, showed us to our room, and kindly shared information that helped us enjoy the inn and the area. We were very impressed by and appreciative of her wonderful hospitality! We highly recommend this inn to anyone travelling to Rockport.
The Inn is impressive with antique furniture and carefully thought out decor. We stayed 2 nights in Margot's Room. The room and linens were very clean, the bed was very comfortable and it was nice to have the window AC unit so we could control the temperature at night. The only disappointment with this room was the tiny shower. The Inn keepers were very friendly and gave several recommemdations for places to eat, things to do, public transportation, etc. The 2/5 for onsite dining is due to the comparitively small breakfast portions. I based this rating in comparison to the 4 other B&B's that we stayed at on the same trip in the New England area. The quality of the food was good, but I would have liked the option to have more. For example, one morning we were served yogurt with fruit, 2 small slices of bacon, 2 wedges of honeydew, and 1/2 of a belgium waffle. We were not given the option to have a full waffle, which would have been our preference. One of the main reasons we like staying at B&Bs is for the usually hearty breakfasts that hold us over until later afternoon so we can avoid having to interrupt our activities (typically hiking or walking) for a lunch just a few hours later. On this day, we were both feeling hungry much sooner than we had on other days where we had a larger breakfast.
Our stay was perfect at the Beech Tree Bed and Breakfast. The house, porch and yard are beautifully kept, the service was outstanding, the food delicious and the hosts friendly! Though its a pit pricey for us, we'll be back for a special occasion for sure!
