A note from the Innkeepers: Liz and Scott Wood, of the Tuck Inn B&B in Rockport, MA:|
Although it had never been one of our "life's dreams", Liz and I purchased the derelict Tuck Inn in October 1991 - the month of the Perfect Storm. Following a massive nine month renovation, we became fulltime innkeepers in the spring of 1992, and now there is nothing we would rather be doing.
Initially, we both kept our existing jobs for a brief period until we got the business off the ground and until we became a bit more confident that we'd be able to sustain ourselves. However, after the first several tough years (fortunately), the business turned around. Since then, we have been able to bring The Tuck Inn B&B back to its previous glory and return it to its prior prominence within Rockport, MA and throughout Cape Ann.
Our varied work backgrounds; Liz as a nutritionist, and Scott as an accountant, along with our complementing personalities have proven to be a very good mix, allowing us to work well with each other. We think this will become apparent when you visit, as you'll find a very friendly atmosphere, a well maintained inn and exceptional customer service, along with two down-to-earth innkeepers who are intent on making your vacation stay memorable.
Liz and I have shared 40 years of marriage (to each other no less), raised our 3 children here and are now spoiling our 4 grandchildren, in addition to the last 24 years of inn-keeping at The Tuck Inn. As we begin our 24th season, we are eagerly looking forward to many more years of the same (God willing)!
Prior to our purchase of the inn, and even now (when we do manage to get away), we tend to frequent B&B's. When we have, we have always felt that at bed and breakfasts whether you are taking a long-term vacation, a short holiday or just enjoying a brief weekend getaway, that there should be a relaxed "Home Away From Home" atmosphere.
And that is just the type of feeling that we believe we have created here at The Tuck Inn.
Consequently, over the last 24 years, we have been ever mindful to treat our guests just as we prefer to be treated; which we think we have succeeded in doing. Furthermore, we vow to continue to improve upon our services and to offer ever-increasing value to you - our guests as well. Our approach as innkeepers has always been (and remains) that:
A.) Upon entering our door, every guest or visitor must feel immediately welcomed!
B.) Your hosts and staff must be friendly, courteous and helpful - yet unobtrusive!
C.) Your accommodations must be clean, comfortable, and well maintained!
D.) Your breakfasts must be homemade, abundant, and note-worthy!
E.) Your room rates must be moderate and affordable by the majority of guests!
F.) That upon your departure you will leave relaxed and refreshed, and that you
should be looking forward (and hopefully planning) your return visit with us!
We trust that as you have read through and reviewed our site, that you will have discovered what has set us apart from other Bed and Breakfasts in Rockport MA, and throughout Cape Ann. Now, we warmly invite you to come relax & vacation with us at The Tuck Inn B&B - your "Home Away From Home".
