Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • This 1929 Art Deco mansion, perched on a rocky bluff overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, specializes in intimate weekend weddings for 30–50 guests. 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.
  • 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 available across three houses. The Main House has 9 guestrooms, most of which have ocean views, and the waterfront Quarterdeck offers another 10. Across the street you'll find the Bulfinch House, a renovated 1840 Victorian, which boasts 7 rooms as well as a communal living area and kitchen.

NOTE: Email inquiries are great, but they'd love to talk to you in person so please give them a call first, and let them know we sent you!
