The Yankee Clipper's exclusive setting, hugging the coastline along a former 200 year old stagecoach trail, is part of New England's quintessential seacoast village of Rockport. The Inn is strategically located to conveniently access the very best sights and activities available in eastern New England and is open most of the year. All rooms have cable tv, private bath and telephone. However, the hallmark of the Inn is the dedicated service of our attentive and thoughtful staff.


Cable TV, private bathrooms, and telephone service are provided in each guest room. Wireless internet service is available throughout the main inn. A computer located in the inn's living room is also available for guest use.

Rolling lawns and country gardens frame colorful vistas to the open sea . . .

Breathe deeply the salt air from the gazebo, near the water's edge, relax under the umbrellas on the terrace for a quiet read. Take laps in the sun-filled, salt water pool . . . it's all part of the Yankee Clipper Inn experience.

The inn has 8 rooms 7 of the 8 have ocean views.

We accept Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express. Minimum stay of two nights is required during high season weekends as well as certain premium and holiday dates.

When making a reservation, please remember that we are making a commitment to you and you are making one to us. We wish to promote the best possible relationship with our guests, however experience has led us to introduce the following cancellation policies.

1. A deposit of the first night's stay is required upon reservation. Cash, checks and all major credit cards are accepted as payment, but a valid credit card number must be on file during your stay. If using other forms of payment besides your credit card on file, we will authorize your card for the entire stay to insure validity of the credit card on file. Your balance will be due upon arrival. We do, however, reserve the right to process your reservation balance using the credit card on file within the cancellation policy period as described below.
2. 14 Day Cancellation Policy: A refund of your deposit minus a $50.00 service charge will be made if your cancellation notice is received by us at least 14 days prior to your reservation date. If your cancellation is made within 14 days of your arrival date, then you will forfeit your deposit.
3. 30 Day Cancellation Policy: There is a 30 day Cancellation Policy for all Holidays. If a last-minute cancellation is necessary, and we can re-rent the room, the same refund policy above applies. No refunds for rooms not re-rented. Another option if it becomes necessary to cancel or there is inclement weather is that we can issue a credit for the full amount to be used at a later date.
