The Tuck Inn B&B

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 10 January 2012

The Tuck Inn is a great place to unwind. Located in beautiful Rockport, MA, this Inn is full of history and charm. The owners, Scott and Liz, help to make your stay here a real treat. They offer advice on places of interest, restaurants, theaters etc. and help you with your travel plans. The rooms are classic and colonial -- they are comfortable, very clean, and maintain the charm of the era in which this old Inn was built. Our bed was incredibly comfortable and the pillows were divine. We could have slept all day in the comfort of our room! There is a lovely living room with a great fireplace that guests are welcome to relax in. Various reading materials are stocked for the weary traveller to read while resting by the fire. There is also a computer with Internet access available in the living room in case you need it.

This Inn is known for its fabulous breakfasts - if you stay here, don't sleep in because you will miss the delicious array of fresh homebaked breads and breakfast treats. Scott prepares the breakfast buffet daily. In addition to homemade breads, breakfast includes juice and coffee, as well as cereals, homemade granola and fruit. It's a wonderful way to start your day. It is also nice to meet the other guests in the dining area and compare travel notes or learn about each other.

Rockport is a lovely place to explore - The Tuck Inn is just a short walk to the center of town and the water. If you plan to explore this lovely part of Massachusetts, be sure to include the Tuck Inn as your "headquarters". You'll be delighted with the rooms, the service and the overall experience - 5 stars! Thank you for a great stay!

My wife and I recently spent a couple nights here in late October and all of the great reviews were very much on target. I travel alot and stay at the "chain hotels" with their standard rooms with little personality and cookie cutter furnishings. Scott and Liz's inn would not fit into either catagory. If you enjoy feeling like your at home with friends then stay here. We totally enjoyed the stay and with being just 4-5 blocks to the center of town you really get the best of both worlds, serene quiet and the shops and restaurants. We will stay here again!!!

Room Tip: All the rooms in the main house were quite nice, and it was convenient to walk down to breakfast wit...

We spent our first anniversary at the Tuck Inn and it was wonderful!
The room was perfect for us. Immaculate and tastefully decorated. As soon as we met Liz upon our arrival I knew I had picked the perfect place. She was so kind and helpful. She gave us advice on what to do and where to dine. The next morning we awoke to the aroma of something delicious! We then met Scott (the baker). Boy does he do an awesome job! Breakfast was wonderful. Each morning we had something different and equally outstanding waiting for us. They are the perfect inn keepers. We were even given doggie bags for "the kids" when we checked out. It was a perfect way to celebrate. Thanks Scott and Liz for a perfect weekend!

Really enjoyed our stay at the Tuck Inn. The Innkeepers, Liz and Scott, are two of the kindest B&B owners I have met. Innkeeping can be grueling but they anticipated our every need and made us feel so welcome. Our queen room with a private entrance was lovely. The TV was small but we weren't there to watch TV. The breakfast spread of pastries was amazing. We walked the 3 1/2 mile loop along the ocean right near the Inn. It was a beautiful walk with a public path right next to the water. Rockport has set aside many right of ways for the public to access the water, something I really appreciate as a member of the 99% who cannot afford oceanfront property. The town is friendly and interesting, especially off-season. It's a great place for a quick getaway.

Spent two wonderful days and nights in Rockport and the Tuck Inn. Extremely comfortable. Liz and Scott were so helpful with advice about restaurants and sightseeing trips. Breakfasts were outstanding. Met several very interesting people who were also staying there. If I am ever fortunate enough to return this beautiful town, I will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: If you are a smoker, ask for the room downstairs with its own entrance.

We just returned from a short vacation in Cape Ann. We stayed at the Tuck Inn at Rockport and could not be happier with our choice. Scott & Liz Wood do a great job running this 200 year old B&B. The rooms are immaculate and comfortable and the Continental breakfast and pastries are amazing. The Inn is located just up the street from the center of town and close by restaurants and entertainment. We had to leave early on our last day, so Liz packed us a goodie bag of treats for our trip home. We have stayed at many B&B's all over the World and the Tuck Inn is second to none.

We have stayed at this inn about 3 times and have now decided to go back every year. Liz and Scott are wonderful. We always plan the trip to include a Sunday so we can have some of Scott's wonderful Monkey Bread. The smell of baked goods wakes you up and carries you into the dining room for a breakfast feast we dream about all year long. The Inn is centrally located so you can walk to everything.....even the train to Boston. I love the town, I love the lobster at Roy Moore's shack.....I love the Tuck Inn! We are headed there this weekend.....can't wait!

Room Tip: I have never had a bad room....all rooms are nice size....good size bathrooms.
