Why We Love This Hotel

  • The seaside location provides ocean views from many of the rooms and common areas
  • This historic hotel was once a favorite of Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry David Thoreau
  • All guests receive complimentary breakfast daily 


Located 40 miles north of Boston and just a mile outside of Rockport, Massachusetts, the Emerson Inn marries romantic 19th-century New England design with contemporary amenities -- like the seasonal heated outdoor pool (available between Memorial Day-Labor Day  weekends) and free Wi-Fi everywhere on the property.

As guests step inside, the hotel greets them with sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean, New England-style rocking chairs on the deck and restored antique furniture reminiscent of an aristocratic parlor in the lobby. West rooms are comfortably appointed with queen beds, flat-screen TVs and full bathrooms. For the best vantages of the water, we recommend reserving an Oceanview King Room.

Nearby Rockport is rife with dining and activities from whale-watching to hiking. Art buffs will want to visit Motif No. 1 -- credited as the "most painted building" in America (Boston Magazine) -- while music lovers should consider catching a show at the waterfront Shalin Liu Performing Arts Center. 

Although Rockport has no shortage of restaurants, we suggest digging in to some classic New England fare at the inn's Pigeon Cove Tavern. Homemade pastries and continental dishes are also on the menu every morning during the complimentary breakfast service.

Special shout out to the young lady who was servicing the breakfast area on 4/17. She was engaging, well informed about the history of the Inn and both proud and passionate about her position and about the venue. She is an asset to the owners. One minor suggestion; We were told that tea and cookies would be available from 3 - 5 pm. We arrived in the lobby at 4:05 pm and there was one cookie left with no additional cookies to come. That is a bit "tacky". :-( If your guests are told that something is to be available for a specified period of time, it should be available throughout that period of time. If not, you should specify "while they last" but that is also pretty tacky.
