Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 July 2014

This is the second year we stayed at the Bass Rocks Ocean Inn and each time we come we have the same feeling.....peace, it is like coming home. The Inn is beautiful and the staff is amazing, breakfast is homemade and always fresh and lets not forgot the homemade cookies in the afternoon which is my husbands favorite. The rooms are clean, spacious and all have ocean view with wicker furniture outside to enjoy the beautiful views. Can't wait for next year!

Room Tip: Corner rooms are have the best view.

We agree with Yankee soldiers review 100 percent. And, also want to add the vintage/antique billiard table was perfect for gaming and nostalgia. We also had the staff locate the name of the singer on a tape that was playing, for us. She did it with a smile and in haste. Above and beyond here. The detail and constant all day sprucing up must be exhausting, yet very much appreciated. This will be our new yearly haunt.

Room Tip: We had the ocean view second floor. Spectacular.

We arrived at the Inn to witness a breathtaking sunset! We sat by the fire pit and enjoyed the views of the Stacey House, the new pool and the ocean. How peaceful...
We stayed two night in one of the gorgeous and very luxurious suites in the main building. Breakfast was all homemade and fresh fresh fresh. The staff was awesome, very friendly and helpful. Thanks to them we has a most exceptional day whale watching off Cape Anne. Love this place

My wife and I and our 11 year-old grandson just spent four nights at this beautiful inn on the ocean at Gloucester. We had a wonderful time. The inn is family-owned, and the pride that Tracy, Mark and their daughters take in their business shows constantly and throughout.

The rooms are clean and spacious; they have all the amenities you could reasonably want, as well as unobstructed views of the Atlantic Ocean and the immediate coastline. Right outside the lodging, just yards from your room door, a carpet of grass leads to a beautiful new pool, hot tub, fire pit and grills for guest use. The rooms are more highly elevated than the pool, etc., so the view of the ocean is clear and unimpeded. There also are bicycles and helmets available for exploring the coastline and the charming, historic neighborhoods that make up Gloucester and Rockport.

Every part of the Bass Rocks facility is kept immaculate and the service is friendly and attentive. A good (mainly cold) breakfast is available every morning. Coffee, tea, lemonade and cookies are available until 10:00 p.m. daily. The staff is highly responsive to guests and they are happy to help with advice on nearby restaurants, sights and activities.

All this fine lodging and great service has the beauty and majesty of the Atlantic Ocean as a constant presence, merely yards away. Our grandson had a wonderful time there, yet my wife and I will go back by ourselves, too. In our view, the Bass Rocks Ocean Inn would provide a memorable vacation experience for families as well as mature adults. It is a perfect point from which to explore the beauties of Cape Ann, Massachusetts.

We had a wonderful experience at the Bass Rocks Ocean Inn. From the beautiful views, the lovely breakfast, the impeccably kept grounds, and the friendly, helpful staff, everything was great! The newly added fire pit is a fun way to spend the evening and chat with other guests. We will definitely return.
