Amenities & Attractions

Though the Seaward Inn is distinguished by it’s old-world charm, we proudly offer all of the contemporary conveniences you have come to expect while traveling...

  • Complimentary continental breakfast: we have revitalized our approach to your start to the day. Prepared daily, this elegant and hearty assortment of artisanal baked goods, locally chopped fruit, yogurts, cereals, granolas, fresh ground coffee, assorted teas and juices, will redefine your expectations of the continental breakfast. Due to popular demand, this offering is open to the public at a price of $12 per person.
  • Enjoy a fresh appetizer and alcoholic beverage at our new bar playfully called “The Hannah Jumper”. No longer a BYOB but rather a full service bar! FYI the Town of Rockport requires “an alcoholic beverage may only be ordered in conjunction with the consumption of a meal or appetizer.” Occasional live music in-season on weekends.
  • Complimentary wireless internet throughout guest rooms and common areas
  • Air Conditioning
  • Private shower and baths
  • Cable television
  • Some pet friendly rooms; based on discretion and availability

In addition to what we consider “the basics,” the following onsite amenities distinguish the Seaward Inn as a leader amongst country bed and breakfast inns...

  • Oceanfront Landing: one of Rockport’s most picturesque vistas. Read a book, plan a picnic, or just watch the changing tides from your seat on our elevated lawn, perched atop the Atlantic’s historic rocky shoreline.
  • Sun Porch: with expansive ocean views...this is where you’ll find guests sipping tea, enjoying an appetizer/alcoholic beverage, chatting with friends or watching a classic New England storm pass by. As the sun sets and the air cools down, the fireplace in our adjacent living room warms the transition into your evening.
  • Walking paths: offer some of New England’s most scenic and breathtaking views. In fact, a seaside path will lead you directly from our door, to Rockport’s historic downtown. If you’re looking for something more challenging, just speak with our GM Nancy, who is an avid runner and hiker. Some of her favorites include, the abandoned inland of Dogtown, and Halibut Point State Park.
  • Lawn Games: on our Oceanfront Landing is a family favorite. There is truly no better playing field for afternoon bocce, croquet, or ping pong.
  • Bicycles: are a great way to get to know our neighborhood. Take your pick from our fleet of beach cruisers and head to town, the beach, or beyond!
  • The Gift Shop: offers guests another way to take a memento of their Cape Ann experience home. We sell local art work, crafts, books, coffee mugs, snacks, non-alcoholic drinks, our signature Seaward Inn cookbook (Pierre Tells All), and more.
  • Restaurant Delivery: when you’re tired of eating out, speak with our staff who will arrange delivery from your choice of any restaurant on Cape Ann.
  • Spa Services: are available at one of Rockport’s local spas, or in the comfort of your room. Speak with our friendly staff to schedule a little pampering.

Our staff would also be happy to help arrange some excursions during your stay. Whether it’s a deep sea lobster expedition and whale watch, or a kayak trip around the famous twin light houses of Thatcher’s Island, we will tailor fit an itinerary to you (and your family’s) preferences.
