Inn celebrated for spectacular ocean views
It’s all about the ocean at the historic Emerson Inn, which has been attracting rave reviews since the 19th century when its guests included Emerson and Thoreau, among others. Today, you may admire the ocean view while relaxing in the heated pool, enjoying a cocktail in the Grand Parlor, dining on the Veranda or sitting on the balcony of one of the resort’s elegantly appointed ocean view rooms. Or maybe, after dining at the charming Pigeon Cove Tavern, you just want to snuggle into an Adirondack chair on the spacious lawn and watch the evening sky turn pink. Nearby Rockport beaches range from the scuba-diver’s favorite Back Beach to the busy Long Beach, from which you can view Thacher Island’s twin lighthouses.
