We have made arrangements with a couple of local hotels to reserve a block of rooms for our guests arriving from out of town. Sonesta Select is very close to our house and is conveniently located near one of our local malls. They have an outdoor pool.

The Cabot Lodge is a small (13 rooms) boutique hotel in the heart of downtown Beverly and only a short walk to the beach. There are many fun restaurants nearby including the Indo an authentic Irish Pub.
