In 1970 The Clipper Ship Motor Lodge first opened its doors in Scituate Harbor. The Lodge offered the amenities of a resort right there on Front Street. It boasted a Nautically themed restaurant, indoor heated swimming pool, a spa, luxuriously appointed rooms and a wonderful outdoor deck, perfect for viewing the harbor and its magnificent sunsets. The Lodge welcomed among its guests many famous entertainers from the The South Shore Music Theater; among them Janis Paige, Mickey Rooney and Edie Adams. The Lodge became famous as a charming Massachusetts seaside destination for many years, until it closed its doors.
In 2009, three local families, supported by a dedicated staff , pooled their resources, followed their dream, and put the wheels in motion to restore the former Lodge and create the new Inn at Scituate Harbor.
The Scituate Town Fathers recognized the need for a quality hotel within its borders; the experience and reputations of the combined families along with the vision they had of The Inn, was an easy sell. Permits were had, construction began. Many hours were spent in completing this "Labor of Love". repairing, replacing, upgrading, filling the rooms with the luxurious appointments which you now enjoy. On August 7th, 2009, just in time for the annual Heritage Days Festival, a newly refurbished Inn at Scituate Harbor opened its doors; doors that would welcome all to be a part of this dream and enjoy the wonderful rooms, views and amenities that are The Inn . Each of the 29 rooms has an amazing view of the Harbor and its historical lighthouse, guarding the Harbor's entrance to the Atlantic Ocean. The Stellwagon Marine Preserve, formerly the US Coast Guard Station is also a commanding presence there.
Residents and visitors alike have all come to appreciate the handsome restoration of this beloved waterfront Inn.
