Bearskin Neck

Bearskin Neck

1 Dock Square
Rockport, MA 01066

Telephone:

Bearskin Neck was named by fishermen who saw the bearskin John Babson had left to dry on the rocks. For years it has been known for its artists, who had set up their shops in the fishermen and lobstermen's shacks of the past. These art studios are now mixed in with a number of other specialty shops and restaurants. Walking the neck" can interest you for a few hours or a few days, when combined with the adjacent shops and restaurants on Main Street and throughout Dock Square. It is on Bearskin Neck that the famous "Motif #1", one of the most painted and photographed scenes in America, is located. This lobster shack is no longer in use, but is kept up as a town symbol.
The entire downtown area, with its large number of restaurants and small eateries, shops, galleries and other offerings, is an attraction in itself, and bustles with activity just about all year. There are also boat tours that leave from the wharves here. There are a number of small inns and B&B's within walking distance of Dock Square.
