Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • It’s a 1929 Art Deco mansion, perched on a rocky bluff overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Only 40 miles from Boston, this historic inn is a real destination treasure, and is consistently voted one of the East Coast’s most romantic spots. JFK, John Lennon, Paul Newman, and Bette Davis are just a few of the famous celebrities who've stayed here.
  • Ceremonies can be held one of three spectacular places. Whether you choose the traditional arbor, the oceanfront gazebo, or the raised “shelf” area of the property, you’ll be treated to views of both the water and downtown Rockport.
  • This is a full-service bed & breakfast inn, so inviting accommodations are right on site. The main home has 8 rooms, most of which have ocean views. The adjacent Bulfinch House, a renovated 1840 Victorian, also overlooks the sea and has 7 rooms as well as a communal living area and kitchen.

NOTE: Email inquiries are great, but we’d love to talk to you in person so please give us a call first!
