“Comfortable rooms, great view”
Reviewed 2 August 2010

We had a spacious, sunny suite with beautiful ocean and garden views. The Inn is in a great location, right by a small beach and a very short walk to town. The owner was helpful and pleasant. Only two issues: 1) there was no shampoo in the room, let alone conditioner or a hair dryer, so if you're planning on washing your hair while you are there, come prepared! 2) The big decks overlooking the ocean are wonderful, but you will be sharing them with other guests. This wouldn't be a problem except the guests in the rooms near to us were heavy smokers, and since they spent a lot of time out on the deck, we had to keep our windows closed all the time.

The rooms in front of the inn facing the ocean are beautiful! You can sleep to the sounds of the surf in a clean and pretty room. Had a wonderful time and wished we could stay longer.

Stayed at the inn with my sister who was visiting. Our room was big and clean. I read reviews after booking and was nervous when reading some of the bad reviews. Not sure if the owner was there, our stay was great. The view from the deck is lovely, and the inn is a short walk to the shops and restaurants, but quiet at night. Breakfast was good, but if you like a hearty breakfast try the restaurant next door as they serve a continental style. The small restaurant next door is wonderful, and well priced. There is also a lovely park between the inn and restaurant, it was a great place to enjoy my morning coffee and take a break from the heat and sun. The beach is across the street, with a less visited and quieter one a short walk away.

Our stay was excellent! We had a room facing the ocean, which was across the street. We got one of the cheaper rooms, so our bathroom (our key opened it) was in the hallway. I thought I'd hate this but it wasn't bad at all. We had a deck area to ourselves right outside our window and since we were on the second floor we had privacy, so we left our shades up and windows open. Hearing the waves and feeling the sea air as we slept gave us the best sleep!

We enjoyed the free breakfast and the location for all other entertainment was suberb. The beach is clean, and although small, there are many beach areas in Rockport. We found the staff of the inn (especially the room cleaners) to be friendly and helpful.

We did have a couple of strange moments with a man who came out of nowhere when we were locking our room to go out. He came dangerously close to us and appeared drunk/stoned. We stepped aside to let him go down the stairs (he was kind of scary) and he said he wasn't going anywhere until we proved we were suppose to be there by locking the door (?) Under his breath he said he worked there but we found out later he was the owner. He needs a 12-step program.

Whenever i go to Trip Advisor, and I do often, I discount those reviews that are very personally negative because I find that most hoteiers try to be friendly if you are friendly to them and if you don't expect something that you didn't buy.

I did that this weekend and went to the Peg Leg Inn (not to be confused with the Peg Leg Motel just a few yards closer to Main Street).. I'm glad I did.

The place is excellent for what it is, a clean, comfortable, large room overlooking Beach Street and Front Beach in Rockport, a few minutes walk to Bearskin Neck. Michael, the owner, was hospitable and I heard several guests thanking him during the day, for one thing or another. Continental breakfast was fine, again for what it purported to be. It is not fancy and frankly, wouldn't expect to be.

Glad I went and am planning to go back because it's a great romantic getaway and a nice place to stay.

By the way, the rooms on the second floor are wonderful. The one on the left (facing from the beach) has a wonderful big shower with places to sit and wash away the sand from your day at the beach. Don't know if they all do. But the best part is that there is a big wide-open shaded porch in the afternoon (sun in the morning) and it's a nice to sit, read and watch the ocean without breaking the bank.

The owner was intoxicated and harrased us while we were hanging out on the front porch. He was very strange, and tried to follow us into our room at the end of the night. He was trying to convince my husband to go and help him close out the restaurant downstairs. We had to lie to him by stating that we had to go to our room for a bit. We immediately snuck out and had to call the cops. They had to come back to the hotel with us so we could pick up our stuff, as we were scared to return alone. According to one dispatcher this was not the first time that this happened, we heard him saying "when he gets drunk he gets bad".

This was the worst experience of my life. Please do not go to this place, do not put your safety at risk!!!

Received excellent service from Mike. He made reservations at restuarants for us, offered free breakfast for my son who was teaching nearby, gave us a lovely large clean room. Breakfast was fresh pastries as well as fresh fruit. It was a great time.
