Just an hour from Boston, the Yankee Clipper Inn is an art deco marvel in a classic New England setting ideal for romantic weekend getaways. Visitors can experience the seaside escape that has hosted numerous luminaries, including JFK, John Lennon, Paul Newman and Bette Davis.
Sitting atop a cliff, this Rockport inn is appointed with eight romantic suites, most with views of the Atlantic Ocean from private decks where guests can "open [their] windows to be lulled to sleep by waves crashing on the rocks below" (Boston Magazine).
Adjacent to the main inn, the Bulfinch House dates back to 1840 and maintains its original charm throughout seven comfortable rooms with country-style furnishings. An elegant public living room and kitchen are equipped with the comforts of home.
TripAdvisor reviews have praised the complimentary gourmet breakfast, where guests can start their day with made-to-order eggs, bacon and Belgian waffles, as well as pastries, cereal, seasonal fruit and a selection of coffee, juices and milk.
Downtown Rockport restaurants, art galleries and boutiques are just a mile down the road.
