“I don't want to go home!”
Reviewed 25 August 2013

The Lantana House is a welcoming and meticulously clean B&B! Richard and Tracy are perfect hosts, very accommodating and respectful of personal space. Patient, kind and friendly are just some of the ways I would describe them. We had such an amazing stay there, homemade blueberry cake, cinnamon rolls and granola! The bed was perfect, slept like a baby. Located perfectly in the beautiful town of Rockport walking distance to the water and everything else you may need or want. When visiting Rockport, I will not stay anywhere else!!

My husband and I stayed here for two nights last Sept. and again last week for one night. Last year we were in Room #1 on the ground floor. It was a nice room but a little small and with a double bed. But we didn't want to have to climb stairs. This year we have new knees so I chose Room #2 on the second floor which is a larger room with a king sized bed. Both rooms had the sink in the bedroom outside of the bathrooms as with many old houses, there wasn't room for the sink in the bathroom. It's OK, just a little strange. All of the rooms are very nice with lovely furniture and bedding. Lantana in general is a very nice B&B with a nice big front porch and a deck on the side where you can eat breakfast if you want. Lovely furnishings, a very nice continental breakfast, friendly owners and an easy walk down to the waterfront, shops and restaurants. We really like Rockport as it feels like a small coastal town in Maine with lots of cute shops and lobsters, without the long drive to Maine.

Room Tip: Rooms 2 & 3 require going up a spiral staircase. It's OK if you don't have knee problems...

My family of 5 stayed 3 nights in the Suite. The rooms are large and confortable and nicely decorated. We used the kitchen for food storage and some last minute cooking, even though the lack of a table prevents really using it for dining on a regular basis. This B&B is very well located, at walking distance of downtown Rockport and its restaurants, sightseeing and shops. We just left the car in the parking lot and walked to discover the beauties of Cape Ann. Breakfast is delicious and generous, with really delicious homemade cakes, fresh fruits, muffins, cereals, everything needed to start off to a long day of walking around. In short we really enjoyed our stay, our hosts were very nice and helpful.

Room Tip: The suite is very convenient for families with children.

Wer Urlaub im Lantana House macht, wird herzlich empfangen und wohnt in familiärer Atmosphäre. Alle Zimmer sind wirklich liebevoll eingerichtet und sehr gepflegt. Das Frühstück ist ausgezeichnet (Bagel, frisches Obst, selbstgemachtes köstliches Granola, Marmelade, Käse, Wurst, Saft, Kaffee, ...), da bleiben keine Wünsche offen. Lantana House liegt super zentral, keine 5 Minuten zu Fuß zum Strand oder Ortsmitte. Zudem hat man einen kostenlosen Parkplatz! Wir hatten zu viert die beiden Dachgeschoßzimmer und es hat uns besonders die herzliche Art von Familie Nestel gefallen. Wir kommen bestimmt noch einmal!

I stayed here with my grandson last week. As a single grandmother I am very fussy about where we stay. Safety, cleanliness and a welcoming atmosphere for children are most important and Tracey and Richard exceeded all my expectations. The house is beautiful and immaculate, the beds are comfortable and the breakfast was a huge spread with fresh fruit, homemade coffee cakes, cereals, breads, coffee and juice. Both Richard and Tracey were terrific with my grandson, listening respectfully to his extended stories and even setting a special place at breakfast with his favorite cereal. Richard gave us a ride to the train station when we left. They are terrific people with a beautiful B & B. I will definitely be back!

We got married in Rockport and Richard and Tracy were wonderful in helping us organize accommodation for our guests. Friends and family were stranded in Rockport during Hurricane Sandy, and they couldn't have done more to help them and make them feel at home. All of our friends and family who stayed there have said how great their stay was - comfortable, delicious food, friendly ambience. Thank you!

Fantastic all round.. Welcoming, great rooms, excellent breakfast. We stayed in the top floor suite with our 2 young boys and had a fabulous time. Kitchenette very handy. B&B is only a few minutes from centre of town which is fun to explore. Richard and Tracy are great hosts for whom nothing was too much trouble.
