Bearskin Neck Motor Lodge
Ranked #2 of 6 Hotels in Rockport
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 June 2014

If you want to travel to Rockport, or just enjoy a night away from the city, book a room at the Bearskin Neck Motor Lodge. Our view was beautiful, and we fell asleep to the sound of waves crashing below the deck. While Rockport itself closes early, nearby Gloucester has excellent restaurants to choose from. Be prepared for a day of perusing the local shops, and an evening of relaxing on the deck, breathing in the ocean air. I would definitely come here again, as the location of the Lodge itself provides a view that you just can't beat, especially for the price.

Hello,

Thank you so much for the wonderful review. I am glad to see you loved Rockport. I completely agree there is nothing better than sitting on the back deck or in your room and just relaxing to the sounds of the ocean and waves. We hope to see you again if you come back to Rockport!
Sincerely,
Krystle

Excellent experience in every way. The staff was very accommodating, courteous and helpful. Delivered everything that was advertised. Rooms were comfortable and clean. Location was perfect, situated right on the water. We would return without hesitation.

I have chosen this motel because of good reviews. It is not bad but DOES NOT COST $ 188.00
per night. And You can hear everything your neighbours talk and do!! Rockport has only couple of restaurants and they all close by 8 PM. I drove 5 hours from New York and really regret it...

Hello,

I so sorry to hear you did not enjoy your stay in Rockport. Rockport is a small and charming seaside town in New England. As a small town, Rockport does have quite a few restaurants, but perhaps not as much as a larger city may offer. Many restaurants do close between 8-9 PM. However, Rockport is nestled in Cape Ann, a lovely cape holding Gloucester, Manchester, and Essex all within 10 minutes of one another. Between all of Cape Ann there are countless restaurants to visit, and many that are open later than 9 PM.

I am sorry if there was any confusion over our room rates. Our room rates for the 2014 season are listed on our website and given when any guest books with us here. Previous reviews about price may not reflect current prices here at the Lodge. We appreciate your feedback.
Sincerely,
Krystle

The view is perfect . We enjoyed one clear blue sky, sunny day and the next day with mist and chilly. Either way, it was memorable. Even better is the sound of the waves that are right outside your door!! It is relaxing in a way difficult to describe. I feel this place exceeded our expectations. We found it very clean, well organized and suited our needs. Will definitely return. You can park your car there and walk just about anywhere you might desire. This place is a jewel.

Room Tip: all room have terrific view....

Hello,

Thank you so much for the lovely review and I am glad to hear you enjoyed your stay. I love that you pointed out both the sunny & over cast day. I always tell people when the sky is overcast and the wind in blowing, the ocean is absolutely gorgeous. There is nothing quite like crashing waves that just lull you to sleep. I am glad you were able to enjoy one of my favorite experiences about being here at Bearskin Neck Motor Lodge. We hope to see you again soon.

Sincerely,
Krystle

This lodge has the best location and view in Rockport. The staff was friendly and the view from your room was great. Listen to the waves hit the rocks feet from your room window. We spent the day walking and eating around Rockport then came back to the room to enjoy a glass of wine as the sun set. I could not have been happier with the Bearskin's location... also very clean!

Room Tip: Get wine or beer before you go to Rockport, only restaurants can sell alcohol with meal.

Hello,

Thank you so much for the nice review. I am glad you enjoyed your stay. There is nothing more romantic or relaxing than enjoying a bottle of wine out on the back deck looking out at the ocean. We hope to see you back in Rockport soon!

Also, thank you so much pointing out how clean the rooms are. Cleanliness is a priority here at the lodge. Our housekeeper, Janine, works tirelessly to make sure that every day the rooms look as good as our ocean view!

My husband took there for romantic get away. This hotel is located right on Bearskin Neck, across from my favorite strudel place. Close to all stores and restaurants. Looks like the hotel was recently renovated, beautiful view from the rooms. The owner was very nice. Overall great experience, would definitely stay there again.

My husband and I stayed here this past while attending a wedding. The staff (owner) was amazing. There was a change in the rehearsal site and she had all the info waiting for us! She was extremely accommodating and so friendly! The room was very clean and the property is just gorgeous with stunning views! I highly recommend!
