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.

In town, one can also rent sea kayaks or bikes with gears to tour the magnificent Cape Ann coast.

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 more.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

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. Since the sale I have refurbishing 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

Why the Owner Chose Rockport, MA, USA:
I purchased the property from my sisters after my parents passed away (2003 – 2013). They started the Seaward Inn in 1945 when it was only considered a cottage. They built and added until it became a 36 unit, highly acclaimed resort. Although sad to sell “the heart” of Seaward Inn (my childhood home), a new beginning, The Seaward, has emerged. "Drop a pebble in the water: Just a splash, and it is gone; But there’s half-a-hundred ripples circling on and on and on, Spreading, spreading from the center flowing out to the sea. And there is no way of telling where the end is going to be". By James W. Foley

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Both young and older guests love the peace, solitude and high standard of cleanliness (not to mention the ocean views) that is The Seaward.
