Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

This peaceful location on a quiet lane just outside of Rockport's downtown offers an easy place from which to enjoy the best that this world-renowned sea-side art colony has to offer.

A five minute walk takes you directly into the heart of Rockport's downtown, full of art galleries, quaint shops, restaurants, and home of the Shalin Liu Performance Center, Rockport Chamber Music Festival, and Rockport Art Association. Boat tours leave regularly from two wharves, and you can rent sea kayaks, go deep sea-fishing, or climb the rocks at the end of Bearskin Neck and watch the sun set over the harbor and the famous Motif #1 fishing shack.

The same short walk brings you to Front Beach, with its fine swimming and scenic views of Rockport's coastline for adults, and gradual slope and tide pools that delight children. Along the way you will pass the lane leading to Millbrook Meadow, an oasis-like park with a pond, waterfall, babbling brook, and large lawn with swings and slide.

A short drive takes you to Halibut Point state park for ocean-view hiking, or to the neighboring seaport city of Gloucester. The train to Boston is only a five minute walk away.

Our house has a private yard with a garden, patio, fruit trees, and even a small playhouse for children. In addition to a queen, a full, two twin beds, and queen-size pull-out sofa, a crib is available. A sunny eat-in kitchen and family room provide plenty of space to relax. There is ample parking for two to four cars.

Absolutely excellent

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful getaway. Home was inviting and close to everything. The owners were accessible for questions and made us feel welcomed. Very clean. With my mother living in town it was like a home away from home. We had a game of catch and the kids used the play house. As my son in law stated after never seeing before "Magical".

Fantastic location, cozy home.

  • 5 of 5

This property had everything we needed for our group of seven. It was very comfortable, you could tell it was a well-loved home, and we loved being able to walk to town.

My girlfriends and I came back for another spectacular weekend in Rockport. The house was clean, comfortable, and stocked with everything we needed. The owners were also lovely about being flexible with our departure plans.

Our group of four were in town for a family get together, and this hhouse was the perfect stay. Everything you would need...comfortable, and a very home like feel. We look forward to another stay, perhaps in the spring sometime!

Lovely house with perfect location

  • 5 of 5

It is just far enough out of the downtown to be quiet. But close enough to easily walk into the beach or the wonderful quaint village center
