Now accepting reservations for 2016! Call our front desk: 978-546-6321

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, flat-screen televisions, complimentary 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 on-site restaurant, the Pigeon Cove Tavern, will re-open in May, renovated and rejuvenated, featuring spectacular locally sourced seafood and other ingredients curated with classic techniques yet creative design by Chef Doug. Sporting a casual yet elegant atmosphere with locally caught seafood, dramatic views of the Atlantic Ocean, and exciting yet thoughtful cocktails and wines curated by Meghan, our Food & Beverage Manager, you'd struggle to find a better setting on Cape Ann.  

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 for renovations. We will reopen in May, refreshed, refurbished and ready to celebrate another summer season on Cape Ann!
