The Destination
The town of Rockport has anchored Massachusetts' Cape Ann for more than three centuries. Its history as a salty fishing port and hard-nosed granite hotbed are etched into Rockport's soul, not to mention every teetering sailboat mast, craggy jetty, and weathered shingle. Life during warm weather months is bright, buoyant, and laden with cheery day-trippers lined up at local fudge shops or snapping pictures of Motif No. 1 (the town's iconic red fishing shack). In the off season, Rockport's North Shore seclusion is perfect for ducking into a local art gallery, walking along the sheer coastal cliffs in Halibut Point State Park, or just listening to the sigh of the Atlantic waves.

The Digs
A grand oceanfront hotel flecked with history, the Emerson Inn by the Sea invites guests to take in Cape Ann in style—and is a sight to behold itself. Behind its classic white façade, light pours into the elegant parlor, where guests can curl up with a book or socialize over tea. From there, the central staircase gives access to 36 guest rooms, each meticulously restored and tastefully decorated to play up historical design elements, all while offering comfort, luxury, and cutting-edge amenities (including private baths, some with spa tubs). An on-site gourmet restaurant (dinner service varies by month, reservations in advance are recommended) and seasonal outdoor pool ensure there's plenty to do, while the open-air veranda offers a breezy perch with a full ocean view.

  • "The seaside setting is magnificent and the old inn takes you back to a bygone era. There is a sense of peace and calm that prevades the entire property. Was particularly impressed with exceptional cleanliness of the rooms and inn in general."
