The West Indies Design Inspiration
The Cabot Lodge is a boutique hotel that captures the coastal nostalgia of New England’s Clipper Ships and their trade routes through the West Indies. Mixing Caribbean and colonial American influences, this vibrant new hotel is a beacon to Beverly’s artsy scene. The Cabot Lodge embraces a genuine local experience and is home base for your North Shore getaway. Plan your stay in downtown Beverly!
The Hotel’s Name: The Cabots are one of Boston’s founding families that settled on the Gold Coast of Beverly. Throughout the 1800s the Cabots commissioned speedy Clipper Ships to transport goods across the Atlantic. We’ve sourced authentic art and curiosities with the help of our friends at Historic Beverly to capture the exotic adventures of privateers and seamen of the era.
History of the Building
The iconic brick building set at 278 Cabot Street dates back to the 1897 as a butcher and grocery shop, Marston & Sturtevant. The initials M.S. are laid into the face of the building over the archway on Cabot Street. Over the years, the building operated as an auto supply store until it changed hands in 1979 to Brown’s Bicycles. The bike shop not only sold and serviced thousands of bike enthusiasts, skateboarders, and scooterists but formed a loving community. The family-owned business thrived for forty years, built on a foundation of integrity family, and fun. The second and third residential stories mainly housed local musicians who formed their own community, Brown Town. The Cabot Lodge, an independent hotel operator, aims to create a new history in the building, with hopes of welcoming guests into the local fold, right in the heart of downtown Beverly.
