The town of Rockport and the city of Gloucester make up the island portion of Cape Ann. Joined to the mainland by 2 bridges, Cape Ann forms the northeast extreme of Massachusetts. Rockport enjoys a unique tourist setting perched on the edge of the Atlantic's rocky shore. Home to some of America's finest artists, as well as intrepid lobstermen who grace our evening tables with crustaceans plucked from the sea that very morning. A setting to make Norman Rockwell proud, white churches and picket fences abound. Famous in the late 1800's for its granite resources quarried by generations of Swedish and Finnish craftsmen, look for the unique rock walls each worker built around his home during his cherished days off. Sunset cruises aboard a 2-masted schooner complement a day on the ocean photographing humpback whales or fishing Jeffries' Ledge. Each Sunday night on Back Beach the bandstand comes alive with the music of local musicians. Escape into a story-book setting, and relax.

Perfect - Right in the middle of everything!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for three nights the end of September. The location of this apartment is right in the middle of town, so you can walk right out the door and shop - or eat! The place was very clean and the owner was great with all the detailed instructions she gave us before we got there. I would highly recommend this place.

Quaint apartment

  • 3 of 5

For the most part we had a great experience. I would give this a 3.7 but that is not an option.

This is not new and updated but it is clean and in a great location. The parking situation is not great. The parking is on the main streets and this apartment is not on the main street. We arrived late and the roads are all one way and we had some difficulty finding a space. It was about 5 minute walk to the car. The apartment is exactly as portrayed. I find it frustrating to have to wash the towels before we left. I have never had to do that elsewhere and I stayed at quite a few HomeAway places. We were leaving early so we had to get showers before supper so we could get them washed the night before. In the morning we had to use paper towels to freshen up. There were those few downsides but the area is great and the Cupcake store which is underneath is AMAZING!!

4.8 - Loved this quaint little apartment with the fantastic location!

  • 5 of 5

I wish I could give it a 4.8 rating.

The location of this apartment was FABULOUS! It is right in the middle of a cute little shipping town. It was cute, well kept and quiet. In addition, the owner was was VERY responsive to a few questions that we had.

There were a couple of things that were not quite as ideal. Being above the cupcake shop was fine (BTW, they have GREAT cupcakes!!!), but it felt odd going through there. Not really an issue, but we just didn't want to be in anyone's way. The other downside is having to do the laundry and be out by 10. We had to get the whole family up by 7 to gather all the linens to start the laundry. We went straight until 10 and even had to leave towels in the dryer because it was a slow dryer. The owner understood being that we had to catch an airplane, but I still felt like having to do our own laundry was a burden. I'm most other places we stay with VRBO, we strip the beds and throw dirty towels in the tub - that is fine, we can do that in the last few minutes before leaving. We would have liked to sleep a bit longer to prepare for our day of travel.

Other than laundry, I'm sure you will love staying here!
