Photos and Description of this Rockport holiday 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. Beaches, shops, art galleries, restaurants, and Rockport Harbor are all just a five-minute walk from your door.

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 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 tidepools 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.

Very quaint home for our family vacation

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Rockport and this home was perfect for us! Priscilla was responsive and very accommodating; even had a crib for us to use! There were tons of toys and books for our toddler son to play with and keep busy. It was so convenient having a place with the full kitchen, washer/dryer, and all linens. All we had to worry about was the food! We enjoyed a daily walk down to the beach and the shops of bearskin neck.

The only suggestion I have for the owners would be to update the picture of the house since it appears to be a different color paint than what is shown--only confused us for a brief moment!

Thank you for a great stay!

Oasis in the middle of a seaport town.

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived it was a wonderful experience. The house is beautiful and fully stocked. We loved the seclusion of the house, yet within walking distance of Rockport, which was very convenient since we had two teenage boys. Phyllis is a wonderful host and very attentive. I will definitely rent this property again when we are up in the area.

What a truly perfect vacation we had! The house is lovely and very clean. Everything you need is there. The location was great- close to downtown but in its own quiet neighborhood. We really loved our time there!

Better than even advertized!!

  • 5 of 5

We were three families from different parts of the country there for 4-5 days for a wedding and reunion. We were a bit surprised at how large the home was. The kitchen table easily seats 8 and the living room was more than spacious for us and our drop-in guests. Sleeping accommodations were perfect and even the hide-a-bed was comfy. The only downside was getting 7 showers in before we had to leave for the wedding. If not in a time crunch - that too was fine. Honestly, you can't get better than this for the money!! Sorry we were away when the owner stopped by, but it was an event-filled weekend. Thank you!!

Great house and location

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean, spacious, and had everything we needed. It was an easy 5-minute walk into the center of town so we didn't need our car at all once we got there. Highly recommended!
