"We discovered the Sally Webster Inn when planning a trip to New England from California. The Inn is charming and the hosts are so welcoming. The rooms are beautiful, traditional New England without being too cutesy and the common areas very comfortable. A delicious hot breakfast is served inside in the breakfast room or outside in the garden patio. The delightful town of Rockport is just a short stroll away. We absolutely loved our stay here in 2001 and made a point to stay here again in 2004 and the hosts Kathy and John went out of their way to accommodate us."
"We stayed last summer here and had a lovely time. The location is great, easy to walk to the shore and village and the hosts were wonderful."
