My husband and I stayed at this B&B for 4 days in August. Joyce was a wonderful host. She went out of her way to make us feel at home and make our stay enjoyable. Breakfast was delicious and she was fun to talk to. She gave us many suggestions for great restaurants and places to see and things to...

My fiance and I stayed at the Mooring Stone B&B for one night in July, and had a great experience. Joyce, the owner, was lovely. She gave us wonderful restaurant reccommendations, and let us have a "late check out" to accommodate our appointment with our wedding photographer. The room was clean with a comfortable king sized bed. Breakfast was in...

We stayed in this B&B only for a night and it was really not foreseen! We had another reservation, but it was wrong…we were in Massachusetts and the reserved hotel was in Maine, same town!!!! We met Joyce and she helped us to find out this, to do some calls and it has been a real fortune to meet here...

First, a confession: I hate B & B properties, generally speaking. Joyce makes this one more than tolerable. Room is quite small but clean and quiet. Disappointing there was no desk, although most people staying here won't be on a business trip (I was). Nice breakfast; just tell her what time you'd like it. Easy walk to downtown and harbor.

Unfortunately we can only report that our experience was similar to the one described in the review "underwhelmed". Joyce seemed interesting but often MIA. The room in the guest house was clean with a good bed but a bit outdated. The room we had the first night in her summer house had a lovely view but felt like we were...

We stayed at this quiet and cozy bed and breakfast in May, in order to attend a concert at the Shalin Liu Performance Center. Location was perfect - we were able to walk everywhere; the b+b was on a quiet side street. Breakfast outside in the little "tea house" was just perfect. Joyce chatted with us at breakfast and had...

Large first floor rooms with private bath, nicely furnished, with a hostess that loves to greet visitors and accommodate their needs. Lots of help to see and enjoy the sights. Within walking distance to Motif #1, Bearskin Neck, shops, restaurants, galleries, and the new Shamblin Liu performance center.

My husband and I decided on this B&B for our 5th wedding anniversary and do not regret it at all!! Rockport is a wonderful little coastal town with lots of history and quaint shops.

We stayed at The Mooring Stone in early October 2011 for four nights. The room was a very comfy quaint room with a king sized bed and its own ensuite. The rooms for the bed and breakfast have their own separate entrance apart from the owner's house. Very private. Joyce was an excellent hostess and made us feel very welcome...

“Each room has king bed and is very quiet.”

“This is a good place to go for visitors without a car. There are frequent trains from Boston's North Station, and the trip takes 70 minutes. If you have luggage, you can take a $5.00 taxi ride from station to B&B, or , perhaps, hostess can pick you up if you call ahead.”
