To be close to the courses, we would recommend staying north of Boston near Amesbury. Surrounding towns such as Newburyport, MA and Seabrook, NH are also great options. There are many hotels in the area and Air BnBs or VRBOs are also a good option.

Here are three hotels that are in close proximity:

Amesbury, MA:

Hampton Inn - 284 Elm St, Amesbury, MA 01913, (978) 834-5080
