This is the second time we've stayed here, and we will come back. The location, free parking, view and friendly people are all worth the higher room rate. We love to get strudel from across the street and eat breakfast on the large deck.

If you are familiar with Rockport, you know there are no resorts, no hotel chains- just local B&Bs, inns, etc. We have stayed in Rockport several times but this was our first time here.

The waves were at high tide just as I was falling asleep and they lulled me to sleep. The room was clean and ready for occupancy before the intended time. The room was charming and the view could not be beat!

Everything was excellent, and this was our first-time stay. If I could have stayed in your area, I would have applied for the office assistant position, I love Rockport that much. I certainly have spread the word to both family and friends.
