Looking for a hotel on the water, with a pool.

Looking for a nice hotel on the water, possibly with a pool...within walking distance to restaurants.

Any info would be appreciated!

TIA

1. Re: Looking for a hotel on the water, with a pool.

Not sure that anything really fits your criteria exactly. The catch is that most restaurants are in town, and there are really not a lot of choices for nice hotels with pools close by. Here are some possibilities to help you start your search, though. (Maybe some knowledgable poster knows of someplace (B&B) in adjoining Rockport that fits your criteria.)

There are nice inns/hotels/motels overlooking the water at Bass Rocks on Atlantic Rd, but this area is not within walking distance of most restaurants (other than those within the hotels)

This B&B is nearer to the restaurants in town, with view of harbor, but no pool:

This one, with small pool and a kind-of sea view from its hill, is near the supermarket :-)

Happy travels.

Check out Emerson Inn by the Sea in Rockport. Great ocean views and a pool.

I think you would be quite comfortable and happy at the Bass Rock.

Riverview Bed and Breakfast is approximately 1 mile from the center of downtown. It is on the intracoastal waterway/Annisquam River, a tidal river with private beach, facing west with sunsets and boat traffic. www.gis.net/~riverview
