You must wake up, open your eyes and see the sun as it emerges from the ocean. You cannot put a price on that and that is what you get at this inn. The rooms are clean with magnificent views. Okay so it's old but isn't that the charm of a bed and breakfast? It was quiet and clean and... More

We spent a long weekend here (3 nights). The room was nice and comfortable with a king size bed. The view was fantastic.! Right on the ocean. There was a Keurig in a lobby area which was nice, but it would have been nicer if there was one in each room so we didn't have to get dressed to get... More

I am sure we must have picked the best room in this Inn which is perched just above the shoreline and has massive picture windows overlooking the breathtaking views of the atlantic ocean and distant islands and village. It feels like you are on a boat . We so enjoyed the private deck with lounge chairs and became so mesmerised... More

The Quarterdeck Inn by the Sea is a lovely old home on the water in Rockport. It's not fancy, but charming, like staying at your elderly aunt's home. We stayed in the Oriental Room and highly recommend it--it's a second-floor room with a shared deck and ocean view. Because it's on the second floor we opened the windows and slept... More

I recently stayed here for 3 nights. The views of the ocean from my deck and the front lawn were stunning. Walkable to town for dinner and shopping, although a long walk. Classic New England furnishings. Breakfast is not available on site unfortunately.

Grace, charm, a touch of elegance, and an unparalleled location. That's the Quarterdeck. We stayed in the lovely Neptune's Car room on the second floor, a quiet, comfortable, air conditioned room with a private deck and a huge picture window overlooking colorful gardens & sitting areas, rocky shoreline & panoramic Atlantic vista, and numerous lively birds & waterfowl.

My husband and I stayed at the Quarterdeck Inn in the room called "Neptune's Car" for one night. The view from not only the window but the deck was amazing. The bed was very comfortable and everything was clean. Randy, the host, was very knowledgeable on the area and made great recommendations. Yes, breakfast is not served at this B&B... More

Found this place on the Internet before we left England but sad to say it was a disappointment when we got there. It has a stunning view over Rockport but sadly the place needs a good coat of paint and a lot of maintenance work on things such as windows.

I wanted a weekend away where I could just endlessly gaze at the ocean and relax. You can't get a better ocean view than here, imo. All the rooms have great views except one, which has a partial view, (not bad, just not spectacular like the rest.) We had the top floor, which is not as fancy as the rest... More

Randy was a great host and was very accommodating. Breakfast was at another hotel, but it was not far and was fine (like a hotel breakfast). The views from our room were beautiful! The room could use updating, but was very clean, spacious and had everything you would need. We would not hesitate to stay here again.
