The Pebble Beach room was a perfect place to be on a rainy weekend. With a claw foot tub and gas fireplace, it was easy to be cozy after being out in the wind and rain. The Inn is so close to Rockport so dining and shopping is a breeze. The breakfast was lovely and having tea/coffee available all day...

Fantastic views from the front of the hotel. Nice room.. very attentive owner... really good breakfast... The whole place is really well sorted out. I think I have stayed in 9 different hotels in Rockport and this is probably the best.

Thank you so much for the wonderful review! We truly enjoyed meeting you and hope you get another chance to visit our corner of Rockport again soon! I agree about Halibut Point State Park. A beautiful place to walk, learn some history and enjoy fabulous views.

So glad to hear you are planning to come back! The Old Garden Beach room is our only first floor room. It has ocean views, as you say, but the second and third floors, by virtue of being higher, have even better ocean views. Thank you for the great review and we look forward to seeing you again soon!

What a wonderful place to stay! It's very clean and peaceful. The continental breakfast was terrific. Chris was so helpful with our questions on how to get to places. Even though it rained most of the weekend, we loved the comfort of this inn. It will be our new get-away. I can't wait to go back!

We had a room on the ground floor equipped with everything you need for a great stay. It was a bit cool so Chris put on the heater and the room quickly warmed up. The breakfast was amazing with so many homemade treats to try and taste.

So glad you enjoyed the koi pond and ocean views. You were in the Front and Back Beach suite that offers both a bedroom and a sitting room connected by a Jack and Jill bathroom. Both rooms have ocean views. Thank you for the great review! We hope you can come and stay with us again soon.
