An Historic Gem
A Rockport Massachusetts hotel, Emerson Inn is Cape Ann's only historic grand hotel. Thirty-six beautifully appointed rooms have been restored to reflect the quality of yesteryear with amenities that discerning travelers seek today, including private baths, spa tubs, private enclosed balconies, televisions, Wi-Fi, and telephones.
Under new ownership as of 2015, our Massachusetts oceanfront bed and breakfast is the choice for those seeking Rockport vacations, Cape Ann getaways, wedding and conference facilities on the coast or fine dining in a historic setting. Our restaurant is closed for the winter and will re-open in the spring, renovated and rejuvenated, featuring live music, wine tastings, a selective wine list and delectable dishes.
From a leisurely stroll through Rockport or nearby Gloucester, to a marine-life adventure, to a hike among the fall foliage or along the shore of Cape Ann, the Emerson Inn by the Sea is surrounded by a diversity of summer and winter activities. Experience the unparalleled romance and comfort of this classic Massachusetts country inn.
Please note that the inn is presently closed while we undergo a substantial renovation this winter. We will reopen in May, refreshed, refurbished and ready to celebrate another summer season on Cape Ann!
