Do yourself a favor and stay at this establishment. The rooms are beautiful, the views are stunning and the staff is impeccable. Great food selections nearby. Very romantic and absolutely worth the nightly rate.

We book all our special occasion weekend getaways at the Bearskin Neck Lodge. Our October visit was for our anniversary. We had fresh oysters and a bottle of wine on their deck overlooking the water. As always, it was wonderful. We wouldn't stay anywhere else when visiting Cape Ann.

Rockport is a sweet town. At this hotel we could walk to everything. We had a great sleep with the sound of waves on rocks throughout the night. The owner/staff was so accommodating and kind. Loved having parking right in front of our room. A great stay!

Hello, Thank you so much for taking the time to submit a review. I agree, falling asleep to the sounds of the waves is truly relaxing. I could watch the waves crash all day! Parking is plus and certainly makes any stay a bit easier. Thank you again, Krystle & Eric

Stayed for 2 nights recently. Wonderful location. Delightful staff. Comfortable room. Only problem was in our downstairs room the sound of our upstairs neighbour walking around above us was very loud. I recommend you visit pretty Rockport and stay at the Bearskin Neck, but ask for a room upstairs.

Hello, Thank you so much for the review & feedback. I am glad the staff was friendly and you found the rooms comfortable. We typically do not have too many noise complaints from upstairs rooms, but if it does happen it is usually an easy remedy. We ask guests to let us know during their stay so we can do...

The rooms are a little outdated for the price you pay but if you want a room where you can hear the water at night while your sleeping this is the place. The staff was also very friendly and it was great because they gave us a town map with shops and restaurants listed.

As many times as I had read reviews for this hotel, I was still blown away by the setting. To step onto the balcony outside our room and see the ocean crashing on the rocks below was beyond my expectations. Our room was spacious, immaculate, and beautiful in its simplicity. The bathroom was a little small but if that bothers...

We love to stay here, we plan our trips around it's availability. The view is fantastic, you are so close to the waves you sleep like a baby. The rooms are very clean and comfortable, love the shower and bath towels. Across the street they have wonderful coffee and pastries (we recommend the blueberry strudels) !!!!

We have been coming here for almost 50 years. The current owners have done a fantastic job updating the rooms. I really hate to say how great this place is because I fear I will have to make reservations years in advance to get a room in the future!
