The Bearskin Neck Motor Lodge was opened in Rockport, MA almost 50 years ago and has retained its New England charm to this day with its stunning views and fantastic location. When Innkeepers Eric and Krystle Leveille took over the inn nearly four years ago, they were were thrilled with the property but eager to make updates to the rooms and amenities. 

Before diving in, Eric and Krystle reached out to the Motor Lodge's many loyal guests for feedback so they could keep the aspects of the room their guests loved while improving the things they did not. Almost every guest said "Whatever you do don't get rid of the comforters!" which is where their relationship with the Bates Mill Store began. Krystle expands, "Our guests appreciate the hand-made quality and nostalgia of traditional New England. As an innkeeper, I appreciate the durability & ease of washing the natural cotton." Below, see pictures of their guest rooms featuring a variety of Bates Bedspreads.

The traditional look of the New England Tradition Bedspread in white pairs perfectly with the modern look of the guest room. We also love the minimalist headboard that adds a classy retro feel to the room.

This wide angle shot captures the incredible beauty of the Motor Lodge - from the ocean views to the top notch amenities in the guest rooms. It's clear Krystle and Eric put a lot of thought and effort into making their rooms perfect.

Featuring a vintage Bates Bedspread, this angle shows off the gorgeous terry or hobnail weave. We love the way the natural light brings a light feel to the room.

After 4 years of experience with Bates Bedspreads, Eric and Krystle still use them in each of their guest rooms. Krystle continues, "We have updated the rooms extensively and the comforters fit right in! We are trying to maintain the feeling of a quintessential New England seaside establishment while also adding modern touches to the decor. It is not often you can find a product with that kind of versatility."
