Emerson Inn by the Sea in Rockport has a divine fall menu!

When I'm not boasting about the fantastic restaurants and accommodations in Salem, I'm often talking about the restaurants and accommodations in Rockport.  Just 24 miles up the coast from Salem, Rockport is a town that makes you feel like you are in another place entirely.   Situated just outside of downtown Rockport is the lovely and historic Emerson Inn by the Sea.   This is a place that combines the best of dining and accommodations with a view that can't be beat!

I just received the new Fall menu from the Emerson Inn by the Sea, and it looks absolutely delicious!  In addition to classics like clam chowder and New England lobster dinners, foodies will delight at Pan Roasted Scallops with sauteed spinach, oyster mushrooms, and ginger-lobster vinaigrette, Beet Salad with goat cheese, red onions, and tarragon dressing, and Manicotti Fonduta, which is a traditional sweet pea and basil manicotti with fontina fondue gratinee.  And that's just the tip of the menu iceberg. 

The Emerson Inn by the Sea is a great option for accommodations when you are visiting Salem and exploring the region.  Rockport is an easy trip via the MBTA Commuter Rail, so you can park in Rockport and hop on the train - in October this is an especially appealing option because when you travel by train, you don't get mired up in the Haunted Happenings traffic that causes a bit of angst in Salem on October weekends.

If you are coming for Halloween, the Emerson Inn offers a great Halloween weekend package with the Hawthorne Hotel's Bedlam Behind Bars ball.  Click here for the details.

Enjoy Salem and Rockport and satisfy your discerning palate at the Emerson Inn by the Sea!
