“Coming back”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 September 2011

Yes, we had a wonderful visit last October, so that I could use the Sandy Bay Historical Library. Now I want to come again this October. I need to see about staying on two Sundays. I will be working in Gloucester and Boston also.
Our visit was outstanding. We even got cookies to take on the road! Breakfast was scrumptious. Both owners were friendly and made you feel so welcome and helped us in many ways. That was my first visit to the area of my father's birth, and I must say I was taken with the LInden Tree. The train is within walking distance- really convenient and only a few steps from the museum.

Room Tip: An ideal spot for seeing Rockport- convenient to the train. We did not even need a car!

We stayed at this bed and breakfast for two nights. The room was very nice. Breakfast was great with made to order eggs and of course to die for scones!! They were worth the wait.
Very close to Rockport and to the beach. Highly recommend.

Linden Tree Inn is a beautiful old home in the heart of Rockport. The rooms are large, airy and very comfortable. Breakfasts were great - if a tad unvarying; offering essentially the same menu each morning - but always well prepared and exactly to our liking. Tobey's scones are incredibly good!!
John is always ready with a good story, lots of great advice on places to go and what to see. Tobey is just a sweetheart.
We both felt very welcome and very much at home.
Highly recommended...

This is a great place to stay in Rockport. The rooms we had were good sized, bright, cheery and very clean. Beds were super comfy! Short walking distance to the town and beach, however the beaches in town are very small. Nice deck in front that you can sit and relax in. And of course no review would be complete without saying that Tobey makes great scones and cookies! There is always something to eat no matter what time it is. Thanks Tobey and John for a wonderful family weekend.

Room Tip: Rooms 21 and 22 were great and were right next to each other.

Nice charming place to stay midway on an gentle uphill street and away from the noise and traffic of main drag. The place is quiet, spacious with plenty of free parking – I mean on premises parking not off the street or in a paid parking lot.

Tobey’s scones are in a class by itself . They are sooooooo good that it’s worthy to be patentized and marketed as a signature brand. Incorporation and IPO should be coming next.

The Mill Pond/Brook parks close by are worth a stroll and light walk in early morning (while still shrouded in the fog and before the mist burn off). A picture perfect landscape and serenity that inspire artist.

We had a very enjoyable stay here overthe Memorial Day weekend and just off attending a commencement ceremony in Boston. I would strongly recommend this place for anyone who does not want to stay at just run-of-the-mill resorts or the most- convenient places just off the drag. One suggestion: maybe it’s time to change some dated area rugs and runners.

A few caveats before I begin: We stayed there during the off season between Xmas and New Year's, so we got a lot more attention than guests normally would during the busy summer months. Also, we were the only guests, so that makes the above doubly true.

When we arrived, their driveway was cleared of the snow from the previous night's storm. The Christmas decorations were lovely and tasteful. There were candies, tea, and hot chocolate for anytime.

Innkeepers Tobey and John are both personal and professional. Their suggestions for things to do, places to eat, etc. were spot on. The inn itself has many different kinds of rooms depending on your needs. The coffee was good and strong and Tobey's scones were to die for! Also, the location is near the train, beach, and downtown Rockport. I would unhesitatingly recommend this place to friends and family. The one downside is getting luggage up and down stairs (it's 3 floors) is a little tough, but when you stay at historic B&B's, you have to be a little flexible with given layout.

We will be returning.

We chose this Inn for a couple of nights towards the end of a long trip around New England and had already stayed in many Inns, this one was up with the best of them. Admittedly, we were there at the end of the season and not many other guests were there, but Tobey and John were perfect hosts.They have some of the most comfortable beds in New England, a fact that could be said for each Inn that we stayed in, maybe we were just lucky, but I doubt it.Tobey was a mine of local information and if you are into photography you can spend an hour or so swapping techniques. The location is good and Rockport is well worth a visit check out the new music venue on the main street, it has a breathtaking backdrop
