Affordable Seaside Inns
Yankee Clipper Inn, Rockport, MA
From $199 to $349 high season
Those from out of state may not realize that Massachusetts is home to more than one Cape. About an hour north of Boston is Cape Ann, and at its outer tip lies the picturesque town of Rockport. True to its name, the shores are strewn with boulders and the Yankee Clipper Inn offers a spectacular vantage point to see the waves crash over the rocks. All but one of the eight rooms at the inn offers an ocean view, and the wall of windows in the dining room offers the most panoramic vista.
Insider Tip: A mile from the inn is Halibut State Park. Go on a clear day when the vista stretches all the way to Maine.
