We stayed herd for two nights in March. We had visited Rockport before and wanted to stay on our recent trip to New England . It was out of Season but it was beautiful and although not all of the shops were open there were still things to see and a lovely coffee shop. This hotel is just outside Rockport in Pigeon Cove.
It is in a fantastic location over looking the sea. We had an ocean view room and we felt so close to the beautiful ocean and could hear the waves crashing in. Yes the rooms are on the small side but beautifully furnished and more than adequate . The bathroom had a jacuzzi bath from which I could see the sea through the window.
The hotel is stunning, beautifully maintained and it us like being transported back in time . It is simply stunning. The restaurant was only open at weekends which was a shame but our fault for not doing our research properly. We walked lots and enjoyed the rugged scenery and remoteness. Halibut state park is a short walk with lovely views and small and perfectly formed. The staff were helpful and happy to recommend places to go. We went to a restaurant in Gloucester for a meal as recommended and it was lovely. It was difficult to tear myself away from the view in the room and it was a shame that we couldn't hVe ordered a sandwich to have but that did not detract from our stay. The buffet breakfast is simple, fresh baked scones, waffles, bagels etc eaten in the beautiful dining room.I would recommend this hotel and we will definitely be back. We may come back to one of the cottages with our family . Thank you for a wonderful, quiet stay. I longed to sit on the veranda in a rocking chair so I will have to come back to do that in warmer weather
