Great weekend and the BSKN Lodge is a wonderful property. Have stayed here 5 times over the past years and you cannot beat the location. The updates to the rooms appear slight but believe me there are upgrades. This property is a throwback to the previous era when your parents were young and your grandparents traveled with big hard sided leather bound suitcases...do not go with the expectation of soft and luxurious. This is utilitarian and simple. Its a bed and bath with an ideal location that is unbeatable.
for some reason I just love the place....except for the rock hard bed...didn't matter got in late and crashed....

Hello,

Thank you for the great review! I am so glad you were able to return and see the new updates to the property. All of the rooms have been repainted and we have been busy updating furniture. We have also tried to add additional amenities since we took over in 2013. Air conditioners, free WIFI, flat screen TVs, and toiletries (shampoo, conditioner, soaps, and hairdryers) are just a few of the additions we have made to each room. We have also updated the office extensively and now serve coffee and tea during office hours.

I am sorry you were not please with the bed. While all of our rooms and furniture have been updated, bedding is extremely subjective. Just this morning I had two guests rave about how comfortable they found the beds. I certainly understand that bedding is dependent on each and every person's preference, but I am glad that it did not disturb you stay!

We hope to see you again on your next trip to Rockport.
Sincerely,
Krystle

The location was perfect--on the water and a short walk to great shops and restaurants. The room was immaculate. We spent time on the deck each day reading and relaxing before dinner with wine and snacks.

Hello,

Thank you so much for the great review! I have to agree, our location is perfect. Being on the water and so close to all the shops and restaurants is wonderful for anyone visiting. Cleanliness is very important to us and our housekeepers take great pride in their work. There is nothing better than relaxing on the back deck with a glass of wine! We hope to see you again if you are ever back in Rockport.
Sincerely,
Krystle

What a find! Fantastic location in interesting Rockport. Views over the bay unsurpassed. Free parking a bonus. Interesting shops and eateries all within walking distance - don't miss freshly caught lobster. Charming and helpful owner. Can't wait to return!

Hello,
Thank you so much for an amazing review. Rockport is a great town and I do think we have some amazing views of the Atlantic and Sandy Bay Harbor. Parking can be tough in the busy season, so our free parking allows our guests to enjoy town without worrying. You can walk to everything once you are here. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay and we cannot wait to have you back!
Sincerely,
Krystle & Eric

It is with great hesitation and reservation that I write this review. I fear that once Pandora's box is opened and the masses learn of this hidden gem that we will have a tough time booking a room.

My girlfriend and I spent three nights at bearskin motor lodge.
The room was immaculate. Housekeeping does a great job. The location was amazing. The panoramic views were stunning. The gentle lapping waves will have you sleeping like a baby. It's been five days since we left rockport and In our minds we are still there.
Our host Krystle was amazing. Upon arrival she gave us a rundown of the area and where to dine. At the end of our stay She let us park at the lodge an additional two hours after check out, so we could snap a few photos and pick up provisions (strudel) for our 6 hour drive back to New Jersey.

Thank you Krystle and Eric for your hospitality.
Have a great summer and we look forward to visiting with you soon.
