Clean and comfortable room; charming decor; friendly and welcoming hosts; good breakfast. The inn is well located, just an easy walk from the center of town; all in all, a good experience and a very pleasant place to stay. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Don't choose Hannah's Room if you have trouble climbing stairs.

We spent two nights here including my birthday, staying in "Apollo's Room". Our room was extremely comfortable though our son's rollaway bed has seen better days and creaked when he moved. It was very pleasant to sit out on the back deck (there's also a garden) in the evenings or hang out in the lounge and do nothing.
The Sally Webster is located about half a mile up a shallow hill from the center of Rockport which means it is an easy walk to and from the Rockport restaurants and there is no problem parking at the inn. The hosts bent over backwards to make sure everything was up to scratch and the small but novel breakfast buffet more than adequately stoked us all up for a day's hiking and sight seeing.
Rockport is a lovely town, only slightly touristy-cheesy, and the Sally Webster is a superb place to base yourself both for things to do around Rockport and even to get to other places such as whale watching out of Gloucester or visiting Boston & Salem.

Room Tip: Rooms round the back are probably quieter than those at the front though we slept fine at the front...

Sally Webster Inn is an outstanding Rockport destination. It is the fourth place we have stayed in Rockport, and we liked it much more than the other 3. We appreciated the unobtrusive but available and accommodating hosts, really nice rooms (most with very comfortable sitting areas), and the variety of comfortable "common" spaces. My husband and I do not normally seek out B and Bs--they are often too cluttered, too precious, over-decorated, and not comfortable at all. We were there for a small reunion; our hosts, Suzan and Dean, were so willing to have our group consume a massive take-out order of pizza and salad in their dining room, that they pitched in with plates, napkins, recommendations, etc. Excellent spot, highly recommended

We came to the area to spend some time relaxing and visiting nearby museums and antique shops. The inn is nestled in a quiet area where there is little traffic. It was wonderfully decorated with period furnishings and was very cozy. The accommodations were clean and comforting. The firm bed was much appreciated- no morning backache!! The innkeepers were very hospitable and offered us lots of information regarding restaurant choices in the area. There was a nice patio outside with tables and chairs when the warmer weather arrives. The breakfasts were delectable and we truly enjoyed the delicious stuffed french toast! We had a marvelous time and plan to return in the future.

We had a very nice time at the Inn. The inn is beautiful, the owners very welcoming, friendly and informative, and breakfast was delicious. The inn is in a great location. We were the only ones staying as Rockport is very quiet this time of year. It was our first visit, but we will be back in the summertime.

Just came back from our stay at this inn and it was great. The women in my family visit Rockport once a year and have stayed at different places in the area. This is our second stay at Sally Webster but the first time with the new owners. We were welcomed by them when we checked in and offered hot drinks and snacks from the dining room, as well as a warm place by the fire. The rooms were decorated quaintly as shown on their website. Breakfast was delicious; stuffed french toast, scones, toast, yogurt, etc. The inn is clean, offers what is expected from a B&B and the value is good for the area. I would stay there again.

Room Tip: I stayed in Rhoda's room.

This was a very comfortable B&B 3 small blocks from center of Rockport.Room was clean and the the bed was just right. Very quiet area , and very little car traffic. Breakfast was good but I would have liked eggs at times. I would stay again. Rockport is a great little town with just the right mix of shops and food.Not too busy,and the views are fantastic.
