the ice machine is so far away from the rooms. and there is no elevator..for the people who might encounter difficulty with the stairs..
The Staff is always friendly and offered help with our luggage.

There is nothing we didn't like.
The staff was terrific! They were kind, helpful, and friendly. We had a room with a full view of the Atlantic Ocean and the room was charming.

- Parking lot was not cleaned well enough (a lot of thick ice) and was dark. - General areas were dark and cold feeling. - Room was very small. - Breakfast was just so-so - Overall, felt like an over-priced experience - While not an awful experience would not stay again or recommend
Staff as friendly and helpful.

A beautiful old and well maintained hotel with a beautiful staircase.

That I can't afford to do it more often, though the off-season rates are extremely reasonable.
The wonderful location and history of this inn! The old building is beautiful as are the views, but all the modern necessities are available as well.

Unfortunately, there was a Nor' easter going on but Inn had no control.
Nice location with an excellent view of the ocean.

This facility would not be good for people who had trouble with steps. It was about 1.5 miles to the central town area of Rockport.
We found it to be a quaint Inn with a great complimentary breakfast. We also had a wonderful dinner in their charming dining room. The staff were very friendly and the facility had a few large porches and the back porch had view of the rocky coast, which was about 100 yards away.

Stairs (hard for older people) Catch of the day was bluefish 3 days in a row
Ocean view Breakfast buffet Quiet Proximity to beaches Friendly, accommodating staff

Felt like staying in an old home where you can hear everything ... including night entertainment in the great room. The path to the ocean was lined with poison ivy! Need to drive into Rockport ... no shuttle provided.

It would be nice if fresh, cool water was available in the dining room during breakfast and in the parlor throughout the day.
I was the officiate for a small wedding to be held on the lawn. A massive storm rolled over the Inn, complete with tornado warning, resulting in a last minute change of venue. Melissa Hobbs, the Inn's event planner, and the staff kept things flowing as smoothly as possible with guest safety in mind as we moved indoors. A beautifully prepared hot meal was served and a great atmosphere maintained despite a complete loss of power. Great job everyone!

Due to being handicapped (both of us) we had it difficult with the stair
almost everything peacefull and quiet area, polite staff

Slightly outdated decor. But in very good condition and very clean.
Exceptional breakfast feast! Beyond your typical B&B. Chef was amazing and service excellent. Beautiful view of gardens with ocean beyond. Highly recommend!!

Would have liked a shuttle into town. Would have liked to be able to have a drink on the porch. Husband was looking for coffee.
Loved the relaxing atmosphere. Breakfast was excellent! Inn was beautiful.

General hotel noises late at night, View onto road from bedroom.
Food, gardens, and view from dining room.

Mattress was not uncomfortable, but not very good quality.
Good location, pretty setting right on the ocean, nice breakfast!
August 3, 2014
The distance from everything without a car. My room was small, cramped and facing the street. No elevator, 3 floor walk up.
Some of the staff were very pleasant

upscale relaxed environment
July 29, 2014
Room was small. Weird lights switch in bathroom- very loud fan.
July 21, 2014
We found the bed a bit too firm for comfort and the bathroom (room 302) was quite tiny. However, this did not take much away from our overall great experience.
We loved the location (amazing), the pool was so relaxing, the food was delicious and the overall ambiance was superb. It all had the feeling of elegance at an affordable price.

Small standard room with old TV and the room was decor was dark and the mattress offered little support. The Hotel should provide more information on activities in the area.
Excellent Ocean views from the Inn. Nicely maintained pool on the property. Friendly staff and Servers. Included full Breakfast. The room and the entire facility is very clean and quiet. Staff is helpful.

Bed was meant to be luxurious but was just to soft for my old and over sized carcass.
Beautiful Quaint inn, Lovely follks working there.
July 2, 2014
room was too small, no where to hang anything in the bathroom, tv was on the side of the room we got a stiff neck trying to watch it, there was an odor coming out of the air conditioner, smelled like ammonia.
breakfast on the weekend was better. the view was nice, but chairs were uncomfortable on porch
June 26, 2014
Room was so tiny I had to open the window for my feet to stick out when I went to bed.
Food and food service were excellent
June 15, 2014
The bed was uncomfortable. It sunk from the middle.
The 1800's features, like wallpaper, pictures. It made you feel like I you had stepped into that era. It was inviting.
