Location Overview

Location Text: 
Rockport, Massachusetts is most famous as an art colony. The town was also a major granite shipper until the depression closed the quarries. Today, vacationers sunbathe on the rocks and beaches, take walks through the woods or along the shore, or watch the whales from boats out of Rockport or Gloucester. The Rockport Golf Club has a fine nine-hole course about three miles from the Emerson, and there are tennis courts less than a mile from the Inn.

Rockport Town
With one of the most picturesque harbors in the nation, Rockport town is the epitome of quaint, New England charm. Embark on a Cape Ann whale watch in the hopes of seeing local marine wildlife. See Motif No. 1, the red, harbor-side fishing shack that is one of the most-painted (and photographed) buildings in the world. Stroll along the streets of downtown, and the famous stretch on Bearskin Neck, through a variety of antique stores, jewelry shops, clothes boutiques, and other shops. Dine at Emerson Inn or eat locally at one of the delicious little cafes.

Art Galleries
A thriving artist colony, Rockport features many small art galleries and art stores offering works in various forms - from paintings, to sculpture, photography, and mixed media. Click here for a list of Rockport art galleries. The Rockport Art Association sponsors exhibitions, lectures, demonstrations, workshops and educational programs for children and adults throughout the year. The association also holds an annual art auction, usually in May.

Beaches
Rockport offers a number of lovely beaches, each with its own character. A renowned scuba diver's spot, Back Beach is located between Main and Granite streets. It also offers great views. If you are looking more for peace and quiet, Cape Hedge Beach on South street is quietly tucked away – a perfect place for solitude. Front Beach is a busy beach on Sandy Bay – walking distance to downtown Rockport and its restaurants and shops. Long Beach, off Thatcher Road, is another long, protected stretch of ocean and sand, backed by a cement retaining wall and lined with summer cottages. From Long Beach you can easily view the twin lighthouses on Thacher's Island.

Boating & Water Adventure
Whether you are aimin to catch a giant bluefin tuna or just want a quiet sail, Rockport offers the perfect boating charter. We are happy to make recommendations for a charter. 

Golf
More challenging than it first appears, the semi-private Rockport Golf Club has thick, tree-lined fairways that put a premium on shot accuracy. Although a 9-hole course, there are additional tees that can be used when playing an eighteen-hole round. Ask an innkeeper for information on public-use times. Open April 1 through November 1.

Lighthouses
Straitsmouth Island Lighthouse was built in 1835 to mark the entrance to nearby Rockport Harbor. The relatively small lighthouse is maintained by the U.S. Coast Guard but the island itself is owned by the Massachusetts Audubon Society as a bird and wildlife sanctuary. The Twin Lighthouses, also known as Cape Ann Light Station, are the only surviving multiple lights on the coasts of the United States. The original 45-foot towers were constructed and lit in 1789—making them among the oldest of America’s lighthouses.

Museums & Historic Sites
The Sandy Bay Historical Society, housed in the 1832 Sewall-Scripture House at 40 King Street, features an extensive collection of local history and genealogical information. Permanent exhibits also include the works of deceased Cape Ann artists Fitz Hugh Lane, Aldro Hibbard, Alfred Wiggin and Charles Gruppe. The Paper House is a historical site that must be seen to be believed. Built in 1922 as a summer home by Mr. Elis F. Stenman, a mechanical engineer who designed the machines that make paper clips, the house still stands today as a monument to ingenuity.

Performing Arts
Visitors can enjoy exceptional musical performances and events year round, including classical, jazz, folk and world music— as well as HD simulcasts from the Metropolitan Opera and England’s National Theatre -- at the critically acclaimed Shalin Liu Performance Center conveniently located in the scenic seaport village of Rockport, Massachusetts. Summer brings the Rockport Chamber Music Festival, which offers orchestral concerts from string quartets, pianists, vocalists, and trios throughout June.

Gloucester Stage Company presents professional productions of intellectually stimulating and socially relevant dramas, comedies, and musicals. Plays developed at the Gloucester Stage Company have gone on to critical and popular acclaim on Broadway, off-Broadway, across the United States, and around the world. The Company has received numerous awards and citations including several Elliot Norton Awards (awarded by The Boston Theater Critic's Association) for individual productions and performances and a New England Theater Conference Award. Gloucester Stage Company is located in East Gloucester, MA on Smith's Cove adjacent the galleries and restaurants of Rocky Neck, the oldest art colony in the United States.

Performances from the students at the Windover Center for the Performing Arts whose works have included the creation and re-creation of original choreography, dance/ theater pieces, and full-fledged musicals with original music can also be enjoyed year round. In addition, the Windhover Dance Company has performed reconstructions of the dances of Doris Humphrey and Charles Weidman, and it is the only company in New England dedicated to the work of these pioneer modern dancers.

Walking & Hiking
Walk the Words guided tours takes you through rock formations created by glaciers 10,000 years ago, the remains of Dogtown, a colonial village from the 1700s, and boulders inscribed with inspiring words from the Great Depression.

Halibut Point State Park is owned by the Town of Rockport and is open for public use. Here you can explore the park's trails and tidepools, picnic on its rocky ledges, enjoy its sweeping views, and learn about Cape Ann's historic granite industry.

Whale Watching
Spy a gentle giant out in the waters of Cape Ann. Humpback, Fin, and Minke whales, and even the endangered Right whale, feed here from mid-April through October. Other sea mammals, such as dolphins, and rare seabirds, including Black Guillemots, Manx Shearwaters, Greater Shearwaters, Sooty Shearwaters and Wilson's Storm Petrels also can be spotted. Many whale boats guarantee sightings. Click here for Cape Ann whale tour options.

The York Harbor Inn’s menu has been featured in Food & Wine Magazine, Gourmet, Taste, and countless other fine food publications. Country Living Magazine recently selected York Harbor Inn as “Inn of the Month,” mentioning the Inn's Ship’s Cellar Pub as “great for a casual lunch or dinner.”

Executive Chef Bonsey CEC, AEC has been recognized as one of the top chefs in Maine by Portland Magazine and one of only a few hundred Chefs accredited by the American Culinary Federation to the American Academy of Chefs.

Whether you dine in the oceanview "1637" or in the Ships Cellar Pub, you are certain to have an enjoyable experience.

A continental style breakfast is served to our overnight guests from 8:00am to 10:00am. Featured are juice, fresh fruits, yogurts, cereal, bagels, English muffins and our special baked goods.

Lunch is served Monday through Saturday downstairs in our Ship's Cellar Pub starting at 11:30 am.

Our menu, featured in Food & Wine Magazine, emphasizes local seafood including shrimp, scallops, haddock and lobster! However, there is variety enough to please any palate.

Our menu is enriched with a continental flair in our veal, beef and chicken dishes as well as our incomparable sauces. All of our seafood is the freshest available, and much of it is caught in the cold Atlantic off York Harbor. Our vegetables are fresh and salads are served icy cold with our own homemade dressings. Cocktails are served, and you will find our wine list is quite large, yet discriminating. An evening meal in our dining room is a unique and special taste pleasure you're sure to remember. Dinner hours (reservations strongly suggested) are nightly from 5:30pm to 10pm.

Sunday Brunch is served from 9:30am to 2:30pm. For off-season service, please check at the desk as days of food service and hours change in the late spring, fall and winter.

York Harbor Inn- "Innkeeping With Tradition". Only 55 miles north of Boston, the York Harbor Inn has offered a retreat from the rigors of metropolitan life for more than a century. For Meetings, Conferences and Banquets, the inn offers 54 individually decorated guestrooms, (many with oceanviews and fireplaces), and multiple meeting and banquet rooms, highlighted the Yorkshire Ballroom with 3000 sq. ft. of meeting space under a beautiful skylight atrium. Four additional meeting spaces are available ranging from 200 - 800 sq. ft. (Some with Ocean Views).  And the unique ability to take over an entire building for daytime meetings and evening gatherings. Complete catering and meeting services are available, as is the Ship's Cellar Pub with live entertainment most nights of the week. York Harbor has always been one of Maine's loveliest and least-crowded seaside resorts. Surrounded by oceanfront estates, the Harbor escaped the commercialization that altered Maine's better known resorts. Each of the many additions to the Inn's 300 year old Common Room reflects something of its era. You can trace the Inn's history by strolling through its maze of corridors, a fascinating quilt of architectural styles. Recommendations: AAA Three Diamond.

Beach Description: 

Stage Neck Inn is surrounded by ocean with a gradual incline sandy beach

Make Stage Neck Inn your summer Beach House
 

Stage Neck Inn is on the ocean's edge, adjacent to York Harbor Beach. This is a beautiful sandy beach with a gradual incline, making it ideal for wading. The tides vary throughout the day. You'll enjoy the sound of the waves on the sand as well as on the rocky peninsula upon which the Inn is situated. The crannies and nooks of the cliffs are an excellent spot for beach combing for shells and for other treasures.

Beyond the beach is a scenic cliffwalk which takes you past the "summer cottages" of York Harbor. About a mile from the Inn is Long Sands Beach which offers a long expanse of sandy beach with views of the Nubble Lighthouse. York is also home to Short Sands beach which offers a beach-resort atmosphere with an arcade, band stand, playground as well as restaurants and shops.

Stage Neck Inn also offers a large outdoor pool overlooking the beach. What a great option for those guests wishing to take a swim but not wanting to venture into the ocean. Our guest may also enjoy a beverage, cocktail or lunch at the Stage Neck Pool and Tennis Club restaurant.

Location Overview
Location Text: 
Surrounded by the spectacular ocean and scenic backdrop at the ocean's edge, it seems easier to find yourselves and one another. The setting of the Stage Neck Inn is truly a one-of-a-kind locale in which so many elements for which Maine and New England are renown coexist. The Inn's staff is dedicated to quality service that parallels the grandeur of the setting. 

The photo above shows just a segment of Harbor Beach which adjoins our property. To the far left (not shown) are the outdoor pool and clay tennis courts. Beyond that are the stately seaside "cottage" of the summer visitors at the turn of the 20th Century. Directly off the point of the Inn is the Atlantic Ocean. Running down the right of this photo is The York River which connects with York Harbor. So, you can imagine how the Inn offers nearly 360 degree views of coastal life.

While there is much to do and see here, the Inn offers a quiet, relaxing atmosphere away from the hussle and crowds of some nearby Maine coastal destinations.

Location Text: 
The peninsula that is home to Castle Hill is located on the western-most tip of Newport, towards the southern edge of Aquidneck Island, just at the entrance of Narragansett Bay. It is this omniscient location, overseeing the East Passage and the Atlantic, that has secured its varied and notable history.

Prior to European settlement in the 1630s, the native Narragansett Indians built an earthwork here to signal messages to nearby tribes across the bay. After the arrival of the English, an 18th century watchtower was built and later, after the Revolutionary War, a battery of cannons was added (and fired) to defend against attacks.
