AREA INFORMATION:
"The Seaward" is located on Marmion Way, a quiet residential street, known for its lovely homes, gardens and views. We are a short & scenic mile to downtown Rockport which can be accessed along a seaside path. Along the way you’ll pass Old Garden Beach; a good spot for a dip, and 'Headlands' for an outstanding view of Sandy Bay Harbor. If you prefer, take the car or borrow one of our beach cruiser bikes and explore the art galleries, shops and restaurants of downtown Rockport. In town, one can also rent sea kayaks or bikes with gears to tour the magnificent Cape Ann coast.

Rockport is rich with history, art and culture. Dogtown, considered a ghost town, is a large wooded area between Rockport and Gloucester. Most suitable for the adventurous, it affords rich recreation opportunities to hikers and mountain bikers, dog-walkers, nature lovers, geologists and historians.

Halibut Point State Park, and the Atlantic Path are two other treasures which will delight the outdoor enthusiast. Whether you prefer the rocky coastline, a quiet beach, reading a good book, artistic endeavors, biking, birding, kayaking, ocean front dining, theater or music at the renowned Shalin liu, Cape Ann has it all...and more.

- Rockport beaches
- Golf
- Shalin Liu Performance Center (concerts and shows)
- Art galleries, theaters, museums
- Kayaking and sailing

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1945

About the owner: I'm a licences independent clinical social worker. In 2003, I took a respite from working with troubled children and families. With a leap of faith and a sizable mortgage, I took over my families Inn business. Until the main inn and restaurant sold in Dec. 2013, I ran this 24 unit bed and breakfast, hosting weddings/events and, as some of you may remember, our Sunday Morning Live Brunches. I have recently furbished and expanded the rooms in the building known as GullsNest for weekly rentals. I have a husband, Peter, two grown children (Kai and Maya), and Little Dipper, my canine side kick.
