About Us

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.

  • I had the honor to officiate a wedding there on Sunday the 8th. I arrived early and was able to do a quick run through with Candice and the rest of the staff. Everyone at the Emerson was absolutely professional, very attentive, patient and accommodating. The wedding ceremony had to be delayed and the staff worked diligently to assure that things went smooth, that all parties involved were on the same page and most importantly communicated well with me so that we can assure that the bride, groom and their families were happy. It was truly a pleasure to work with everyone there.
