Guests of The Emerson Inn enjoy a unique combination of thoughtful amenities and genuine hospitality. From our historic parlor to our stunning ocean view pool, The Emerson Inn is characterized by its blend of bygone charm and modern amenities travelers seek today. With many welcoming spaces and comfortable guest rooms, the inn invites relaxation, while providing superb scenery from which to watch stunning sunrises and soak in the peace and tranquility of our lovely Rockport hotel. The Parlor Bar offers a ragtime jazz era, with comfortable seating, and local art adorning the walls. We are committed to offering fresh local delicacies that compliment your favorite cocktails, served inside the parlor, outside on the veranda or in our dining room. Charcuterie boards, cheese platters, chowders, and other favorites make The Parlor Bar the perfect meeting place for any occasion.

Amenities Include

Other Activities & Things To Do

Located on picturesque Pigeon Cove, one of our greatest amenities is unfettered access to local walking paths and other area activities. One of our favorites includes the Atlantic Trail, which hugs Rockport's rocky coastline directly behind The Emerson Inn. The inn is only a few moments drive (or about 20 minute walk) to Halibut Point State Park, from which you can see Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Maine on a clear day.

In addition to exploring the natural beauty of Rockport and Cape Ann, there are a wide variety of cultural activities, historic tours, and excursions (like whale watching) to enjoy! Our guest services representatives can assist you in planning any tours or excursions through our preferred partners.
