Rockport's Emerson Inn Reopens
Cape Ann's historic grand hotel reopens after a significant renovation project
On May 13, 2016, the landmark Emerson Inn, Cape Ann’s only historic grand hotel, reopened after a significant renovation project. Located just 40 minutes north of Boston, this charming New England oceanfront inn offers 36 tastefully decorated rooms with luxurious linens, a casual yet sophisticated restaurant, private balconies, spa tubs, and sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean—all within walking distance of the quaint town of Rockport.
Acquired as the former “Emerson Inn by the Sea” by the family-run Migis Hotel Group in 2015, the beautifully renovated Emerson Inn offers an authentic bed-and-breakfast experience with heartfelt hospitality reminiscent of days gone by. Enjoy a relaxing family vacation at the shore, or perhaps a romantic retreat complete with cocktails on the grand porch, a stay at the Emerson Inn will transport you back to a more tranquil and simpler time. Oceanfront views in the newly named Pigeon Cove Tavern will dictate a daily menu of locally sourced seafood, farm fresh ingredients, and artfully crafted classic New England dishes. Imagine enjoying fresh ocean breezes while spending cherished moments with your family and friends in this unforgettable location. Unlike anything else offered in the area, this classic Massachusetts seaside inn is the ideal place to hold your wedding, retreat, or special event.
“From the renovated restaurant to the newly restored rooms, we have taken great care to preserve the details of the inn’s architecture and decor while making extensive upgrades to our guest amenities,” said COO of Migis Hotel Group Peter Twachtman. "We want to return this historic waterfront gem back into the fabric of the community and became a neighborhood destination for a classic cocktail on the grand porch or Sunday brunch with the family.”
