Mooring Stone Guest House
Ranked #22 of 24 Rockport B&B and Inns
Reviewed 1 July 2012

We stayed at this quiet and cozy bed and breakfast in May, in order to attend a concert at the Shalin Liu Performance Center. Location was perfect - we were able to walk everywhere; the b+b was on a quiet side street. Breakfast outside in the little "tea house" was just perfect. Joyce chatted with us at breakfast and had lots of suggestions. Room and bathroom were spotless. Every room has a king bed and is equally quiet with its own private entrance. Don't miss walking up to the "headlands" at the end of the street - wonderful view of town and harbor.

Room Tip: Each room has king bed and is very quiet.

Large first floor rooms with private bath, nicely furnished, with a hostess that loves to greet visitors and accommodate their needs. Lots of help to see and enjoy the sights. Within walking distance to Motif #1, Bearskin Neck, shops, restaurants, galleries, and the new Shamblin Liu performance center.

Room Tip: This is a good place to go for visitors without a car. There are frequent trains from Boston's...

My husband and I decided on this B&B for our 5th wedding anniversary and do not regret it at all!! Rockport is a wonderful little coastal town with lots of history and quaint shops. The Mooring Stone was a great place to stay, loved the room, so nice and clean, loved the nearby shops you can walk to as well as the wharf. Joyce was a great hostess and had given us ideas on resturants in the area as well as things to do. All of her suggestions were really great. Love this area and love this B&B. We will plan on going again!!

We stayed at The Mooring Stone in early October 2011 for four nights. The room was a very comfy quaint room with a king sized bed and its own ensuite. The rooms for the bed and breakfast have their own separate entrance apart from the owner's house. Very private. Joyce was an excellent hostess and made us feel very welcome with evening tea and cookies and a beautiful breakfast every morning. She was an accommodating host and even went into Lynn to find an article our son wanted as we were not headed in that direction! She had good suggestions for sightseeing and resturants in the area. It was a very pleasant stay and should we ever be in the area again would certainly stay here again.

The b and b was brilliant. Clean tidy and very close to the coast. Joyce was very nice and welcoming she told us about the area and showed us where to go and what to do and gave us maps. The beds were very comfy and slept like a log for the 2 nights we were there. There were 4 of us adults and we didn't have one complaint at all. The food was also very nice. We went jogging each morning along the coast and wow what a lovely scene. You will be very happy you stayed here. Joyce is a great person and talked to us alot and we felt at home. We live in London and can't wait to go back to rockport and stay with Joyce again.

This was our first time in Rockport. We found the Mooring Stone to be the perfect place to stay. The room we stayed in was spacious and clean and very private. Joyce the owner/proprietor was very gracious and gave us a lot of information about this gorgeous town! It was also a lot of fun to eat breakfast in the tea house which was like being in a life size doll house for grown-ups. Would most certainly stay here again. It is within walking distance to a beach, as well as the stores & restaurants. It was fun just to walk in the neighborhood which is filled with beautiful and charming homes. We also saw a fantastic show at the local performing arts center which is absolutely beautiful. Behind the stage are very large picture windows where you have a great view of the harbor! Again, this is a really lovely town and the b&b was great!

I am not sure the reason behind the less than perfect experience that one of the guest had at the Mooring Stone B&B, but from personal experience let me say, that it should not inhibit you from the marvelous experience that awaits you at the Mooring Stone B&B. Joyce Cannon is a gem and to put it any other way would not do her justice. She is very personable, accommodating and knowledgeable in any and everything having to do with Rockport; like what's the best restaurant, the best beach, the best place to sit and paint, the best place to have a romantic evening or merely the place to capture the best view. Morning breakfast at the B&B is divine; and this is coming from someone who is very picky about what they eat and from whom. Location, location, location…..let me be the first to say that the Mooring Stone B&B is perfectly located in the center of town, accessible to the local restaurants, shops, Art center. For those of you looking for an affordable, comfortable, cozy and incredibly clean place to spend your evenings, the Mooring Stone B&B is simply the best!

Room Tip: All the rooms are pretty much the same
