About the property

Quiet Location in a Beautiful Neighborhood, Walk to Everything, 600 Square Feet

ASK ABOUT OUR MONTHLY OR WEEKLY WINTER RENTALS. ROCKPORT IS A GREAT PLACE IN DECEMBER. Walk to Old Garden Beach in two minutes, Front Beach in 15 minutes and the shops and restaurants of Rockport in 12 minutes from our newly renovated one bedroom carriage house apartment. Steps away from the Old Garden Path, a footpath directly above the ocean, for beautiful vistas or out to The Headlands which is halfway to town for more vistas of Rockport Harbor, the Rockport Village and Sandy Bay. You will stay in a beautiful, quiet neighborhood where locals live throughout the year. The unit is in a separate building from our home and offers complete privacy but we are here to make your stay enjoyable. This bright and airy apartment offers a completely furnished kitchen with gas stove and granite countertops, queen size bed, bathroom with shower and living room with a separate area for dining. Bring your kayak or bike or scuba gear.

This is a great base camp for taking day trips to historic sites, including Boston and Salem via our local commuter train. We are also only four miles from Gloucester, the oldest fishing port in the U.S. Both Rockport and Gloucester are home to dozens of artists whose galleries are available for viewing throughout the area. We are a short drive from Essex where you can spend a day antiquing. Rockport is a great place to come with your camera. No matter what level of photographer you are, you will go home with beautiful photos. For anyone interested in gardening come for the Rockport Garden Tour where you will visit local houses to see all the gems in their hidden gardens.

Christmas is a special time in Rockport. Come see the Christmas pageant with a live nativity, sing Christmas carols in Shalin Lui, and visit the galleries all decorated for the season.

Monthly rentals are available. Please email with your dates for the rate.

Rockport is heaven on earth. After traveling to many places in the U.S. and Europe Rockport beckoned us to be permanent residents.

Friendly Cozy Hideaway in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Had a very pleasant 4 day stay (Labor Day) at this extremely comfortable and private second floor rental. Located in a very nice residential area, just steps from Old Garden Beach and a short walk to the Headlands and Bear Skin Neck. Accommodations were as advertised, with everything in like new, spotless condition. Hostess Sherri very eager to make your visit as pleasant and memorable as possible. We had a great time and will likely return...and would highly recommend this rental to even the most discerning travelers.

This little apartment is perfect for two people. The bed was so comfy. We slept with the windows open practically every night. This area offers some of the prettiest views of the Atlantic that I've ever seen. Location was perfect. A short walk from town with beautiful views along the way. Patrick and Sherri were so hospitable and gave us great advice on where to eat. Would definitely come back!!

The light and air quality is ideal for artists and photographers so bring your camera or brushes. Hike to Dogtown which was the earliest settlement on Cape Ann (1600s). Walk out to Halibut Point Granite Quarry. Take a boat tour around the island or go whale watching. Take the tour to Thatcher Island but make sure you reserve well in advance. Rent a kayak or spend the day at the beach. If you read The Boston Girl walk to see Rockport Cottage, keeping in mind that this is a private residence now.
