“The best of Rockport!”
Reviewed 15 June 2013

This is a charming house with a wonderful porch and beautiful ocean views. The owners know the area well and are very helpful in providing points of interest and suggestions for local restaurants. The breakfasts were outstanding including the homemade granola, fresh fruit and freshly baked goods. The smell of coffee and baking in the morning is amazing to wake up to. We can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: We had the room with the attached sunroom. We could hear the ocean and the natural light was wonderf...

My wife and I stayed here a couple nights in early November. The property is beautiful, sit's right on the water, views were amazing! Owners were very welcoming and helped us navigate around Rockport as this was our first time visiting. We stayed in Room #1 with the sunroom, couldn't have been happier. Extremely clean and comfortable, you will not be disappointed staying here. If you are looking to get out of the city and relax, this is the place to be!

Just loved this beautiful old inn right on the Atlantic in Cape Ann. Fell asleep to the sound of crashing waves, and awoke to a front row seat of beautiful sunrises. As an artist , I actively seek out beautiful places to visit where I can not only relax, but paint. This was heaven for me. Gretchen was a lovely and hospitable host, and her continental breakfasts far exceeded the norm. I do hope to be blessed enough to have the opportunity to return!

Room Tip: They're all good.

Though we only had the opportunity to stay one night at this beautiful old seaside home our memory will be long lasting. Friendly greeting, nicely decorated room,comfy bed, amazing views, wonderful porch overlooking the ocean,chairs at seaside, well maintained grounds and an enjoyable continental breakfast to start the day. Located right next to the ocean we enjoyed the magical sound of waves pounding against the rocks and the sight of seagulls hurrying to some unknown destination. Just a great place to relax and perhaps ponder the mysteries of life.

Room Tip: Room Number One which offers a sunroom with a daybed and chairs is without question the place to be...

This was our second trip to Rockport and this was the best choice for us. We loved the setting, right on the Ocean with places to sit,read and relax. Gretchen and Tim made us feel right at home and the dog won over our hearts. Short walks into town or longer walks on the paths were just the thing to unwind . We will go back again.

Thoroughly enjoyed our time at the Captain's House. Very relaxed, beautiful location and close to many things to do. We just barely sampled the area so we're already hoping to come back. I can see why the area has drawn artists for quite some time.

Traveling for a few days with my wife, and wanted to stay on Cape Ann to see that area. We have spent many vacations in Martha's Vineyard, and wanted a change. The location was spectacular, the Inn very comfortable, and the sounds and scent of the ocean added to the joy experienced there. Breakfast was also good. I would recomend this to all! We were there during a very hot few days, and the rooms were without airconditioning. It was warm, but the constant breeze kept it comfortable, no higher than 82 degrees (note- it was 95 plus in New Jersey that day)
