The Seafarer Inn has a long history as a place to stay to get away from it all when visiting Rockport, Mass. Built in 1890, the Seafarer Inn was first used by the famous Rockport hotel "The Straitsmouth Inn" as a cottage that guests could stay at away from the main hotel. The map below is from 1899 and shows the Seafarer Inn at it's current location on Marmion Way (then called "Estes Ave"), before the Coast Guard Station was built.
