About Emerson Inn

Emerson Inn is a hotel wedding venue located in Rockport, Massachusetts. This beautiful venue, which sits by the ocean, promises a charming mix of extraordinary views, amazing spaces, and intimate settings.

Facilities and Capacity

Thanks to a number of picturesque and wonderful spaces, there is much to admire at Emerson Inn. As such, it is ideal for all manner of ceremonies and receptions as it can accommodate between two and 150 people, depending on your plans.

For your ceremony, you can make your way towards the Oceanfront Lawn as you prepare to say ‘I do’ against a backdrop of breathtaking coastline and the powerful Atlantic Ocean. Here, you can set up the perfect ceremony photo as you and your beloved are joined in matrimony.

Afterwards, the wedding party can meander back to the main building where the cozy and charming Parlor awaits - here, you can enjoy your favorite beverage ahead of the reception meal. Outdoors, on the Veranda, people can chat together and get in the party spirit while enjoying the fresh ocean air.

Following on from this, everyone can make their way towards the Dining Room to officially welcome the happy couple. Here, you can enjoy some fine cuisine as you sink into the venue’s comfort and luxury.

After the last dessert has been savored, the party can begin in earnest as you make use of the rest of Emerson Inn’s common spaces.

    Gorgeous location, great staff, wonderful food= a wedding venue of excellence

    Having planned many events and stayed in many hotels, I can honestly say the Emerson Inn experience was second to none. The event coordinator was flexible with a "we will make it work" approach putting in long hours as if this were her own child's wedding. The Emerson staff, from bell hop, to server, to maintenance, to chefs, to front desk, to housekeeping all shared this same work ethic. Everyone was easy to work with so we could all relax and enjoy to occasion. Last minute changes due to weather and some special accommodations were problem solved and handled seamlessly and with enthusiasm and grace. Set up for ceremony, cocktail hour, buffet, dancing was smooth and efficient.
    Staff often anticipated needs, including some from our 95 year old, special guest. The food was delicious. Passed bites during cocktail hour were plentiful and very tasty. Dinner exceeded even high expectations. And breakfasts provided new surprises each morning for lasting fond memories (homemade donuts!). One can't beat sitting on the porch in a rocking chair with the ocean their before you. A doable walk to town or a shorter walk to a state park made it a location from which one can access Rockport. . Family and guests have given us nothing but positive feedback and enjoyed being together in this pretty setting. If we have another event to plan, we would go back to the Emerson Inn without hesitation. For us, the Emerson Inn is an unqualified recommendation and played a huge role in making our daughter's wedding so much fun and so special for everyone. Thank you.

    Could not have been better

    We had our wedding at the Emerson Inn at the end of April and were so happy with the experience. Candice, the Events Manager, and Emily, the Guest Services Manager, were both incredible throughout the whole process of booking the Inn, rooms, and putting together our wedding. Candice is so detail oriented and thinks of the small things that will make the experience better for you and your guests.

    The rooms are lovely, clean, and very comfortable (the beds are awesome). The food from the Pigeon Cove Tavern was great-we did a buffet and all the food was delicious-and breakfast was yummy as well! Of course, the view and location cannot be beat.

    If you're looking for a relaxing and lovely night away, or a great place to host your wedding on the water-this is it!
