Yankee Clipper Inn

127 Granite St.
Rockport , MA , United States
(978) 546-0001

The hotel compensates for its somewhat run-down features (chipping paint, dusty glasses) with all-ocean views from most of its rooms. If possible, book the "Neptune's Car" room in the "Quarterdeck" annex, which is a separate property 200 feet from the main inn, featuring a private deck and massive windows offering water views and lighthouse views. Set your alarm and watch the sun rise over a quiet ocean from outside the inn, which sits on a typically rocky New England bluff.
