Where to Stay in Rockport, Massachusetts:

Bearskin Neck Motor Lodge
An somewhat plain, old fashioned motor lodge that has the infinite gift of location. Smack on the sea at Bearskin Cove. You can’t get any closer to the heart of Rockport.

Where to Eat in Rockport, Massachusetts:

Roy Moore Lobster Company
Housed in a diminutive shingled building on the Bearskin Neck waterfront, this may be the friendliest lobster shack anywhere. Start with owner Ken Porter’s thick, creamy clam chowder, and dine atop wooden lobster crates on the crowded yet friendly back deck.
