EMERSON INN BY THE SEA
The perfect blend of elegance,
history and quality preserved
- Picture a small, personal resort overlooking a spectacular view of the
Atlantic Ocean with the rocky Cape Ann coast
in the foreground. From your private
balcony, you gaze out over beautifully groomed grounds to watch a sea gull
hover over blue waters in the distance.
Children with doting parents play in the salt water pool below, as
couples engage in quiet tete-a-tetes while enjoying breakfast on the
wrap-around sun-filled porch. A romantic
couple takes in the view from white rockers a little farther down the porch.
You came for the quiet relaxation that philosopher and poet Ralph Waldo Emerson
sought as he vacationed here in the past.
Now you know why his writings have inspired generations. Emerson Inn by
the Sea is what vacations are meant to be all about.
The Emerson Inn by the Sea is Cape Ann’s
only historic grand hotel, referred to by many as a “baby grand”. Thirty-six beautifully
appointed rooms have been restored to reflect the quality of yesteryear, and
with amenities that discerning travelers seek today, including private baths, spa tubs, private
enclosed balconies, televisions and telephones.
Two cottages adjacent to the inn offer the ideal surroundings for family
vacations and reunions or corporate retreats, with decks, oceanview yards and
even a back yard bar-b-q.
The inn’s dramatic oceanside setting offers the ideal
backdrop for weddings, functions and conferences. All major function rooms overlook a beautiful
view of the Atlantic, while break out rooms
include state of the art sound systems and AV capabilities. Emerson Inn by the
Sea’s experienced conference and functions staff will not let a single detail
go unplanned. Throughout the year,
Emerson Inn by the Sea offers brides and grooms a picture-perfect setting for both indoor or outdoor weddings.
The Grand Cafe
dining room serves breakfast and sophisticated New England-style fare in the
evenings. It’s the ideal choice for
vacationers and business travelers alike. Whether staying at the inn or coming
just for dinner, guests are attracted by not only Chef Mitch’s wonderful zeal
for New England cuisine with a sense of adventure, but also for the ocean side
Throughout the summer and fall, guests can choose to dine on
the outdoor porch, and watch the sun lower into the ocean while enjoying fine
cuisine, or stay in side in air conditioned comfort to watch for “the green
flash” through the picture windows. At
this time, Rockport is a “dry” town, so guests of Emerson Inn by the Sea are
welcome to bring their own alcoholic beverages, and set-ups will be provided.
The Emerson Inn by the Sea guest book is a legacy. Travelers
return year after year, from the time they are honeymooners, to family
vacationers, and then even with grandchildren. The varied room configurations
make Emerson Inn by the Sea the perfect choice, no matter how many people are
in the travel party. Romantic premier
rooms feature private balconies and spa tubs.
Many king and queen rooms overlook dramatic views of the Atlantic Ocean.
Cozy and standard rooms are perfect for those on a budget or business
travelers on per diem. For those traveling with more than two in their party,
family suites or rooms with two or more beds are also available. Larger families can choose the three-bedroom,
fully applianced cottages adjacent to the inn.
No matter what the travel party size or budget, Emerson Inn by the Sea
has the perfect accommodations.
Emerson Inn by the Sea offers a wide range of themed lodging
packages and dining events. From Easter
baskets in the rooms to live theater during the summer, girlfriends “gabaways”,
and shopping packages to gingerbread houses, cookie decorating and specialty
food tastings during the holidays, couples and families will find great reasons
to choose Emerson Inn by the Sea. This is the stuff great vacation memories are
made of, and Emerson Inn by the Sea assures guests their themed vacation
packages will not only establish new traditions, but will make indelible
