Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Dining Area, Full Kitchen, Harbor Deck (Sleeps 4)

This custom-furnished, luxury apartment provides all the amenities that one may need to enjoy time at Rockport's most popular destination, Bearskin Neck.

The Mariner, located at 35 Bearskin Neck, offers: two bedrooms - the Bearskin Neck-side bedroom has a queen-sized bed and the Harbor-side bedroom has a king-sized bed; a full bath; a kitchen fully-stocked with everything one may need to prepare and enjoy meals; a dining area; a living room with flat-screen, cable TV; and deck with table and seating overlooking Rockport Harbor.

Art galleries, shoppes, and eateries are steps outside the front entrance, and Bradley Wharf, Rockport Harbor, and Motif #1 greet you at the rear entrance.

Lobsters are unloaded daily on Bradley Wharf, prepared next door at the Roy Moore Lobster Company, and enjoyed by many on their back deck 'in the rough'.

Parking is notoriously difficult on Bearskin Neck. However, we have a reserved parking spot across from Front Beach, an approximate 10 minute, pleasant walk along Main Street. We recommend dropping off luggage at the Bradley Wharf entrance to the apartment upon arrival, parking in the reserved spot, and walking back to the apartment.

About Justin Mierz

Justin grew up in Rockport and graduated in 1992 from Rockport High School before heading to East Carolina University in Greenville, North Carolina. Justin returned home after graduation, received a Master of Public Health from the University of Massachusetts, and met his wife, Marcie, in the North End in Boston. Justin spent 13 years as an Environmental Analyst for the Environmental Epidemiology Program at the Massachusetts Department of Public Health before resigning in 2013 to operate vacation rentals in Rockport. Marcie is a software engineering manager at NASDAQ in Boston. Justin and Marcie live with their two girls - Ava Mae (7 years old) and Sadie (4 years old) - on Atlantic Avenue in Rockport.

Justin Mierz purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Justin Mierz chose Merrimack Valley & Essex County

This property has been in the family for generations. For many years, Justin's grandmother operated the Lobster in the Rough restaurant before the space was renovated in 2012 by Justin's mother and step-father.

What makes this apartment unique

The location of the Mariner is unparalleled. Guests enjoy a panoramic view of Rockport Harbor from nearly every room. Motif #1 is a stone's throw away from the Mariner deck. Restaurants, shops, and galleries are steps away.

Perfect for families

  • 5 of 5

Literally nothing to complain about. Everything was so clean, well equipped, spacious, and a great location! The price was right, and Justin was a pleasure to work with. A perfect stay for our family with many small children.

Our stay at the Mariner in Rockport

  • 5 of 5

First, the pictures do not do the Mariner any justice, as the place is much better than advertised. The unit is spotless, well organized and a perfect location. The owner could not be more pleasant. I highly recommend this two bedroom rental.

Perfect location on Bearskin Neck

  • 5 of 5

This is an ideal location, perched atop Bearskin Neck--a perfect getaway spot with a stunning view of Motif #1-- seemingly secluded while in the center of it all. I woke up early and explored the whole village and the Breakwater while not a soul was awake. It was gorgeous. During the day (in summer), the streets are full of people and dogs. The Mariner is perfect for two couples, and we had a 1 year old in a pack n play. It is so comfortable, and has everything you might need. Justin was really helpful with parking ideas for our second car. Comes with a beach pass (!) and one parking pass a short walk away. Bookshelf comes stocked with family games and books, and pantry stocked with coffee and snacks. The place was perfect. I would love to stay here again!

Loved it. Definitely going back next year.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Justin's condo with our 2yo and 4yo for a long weekend. Justin was a great host, he met us at the condo and explained everything we needed to know. The location can't be beat, the house is well equipped and extremely spacious and comfortable, and the views are amazing. My 4yo old was bummed that we had to go back to our "old house" and that we couldn't stay at our "beach house" for longer. Will be back next summer.

SLAM DUNK....AGAIN

  • 5 of 5

This was our second consecutive stay at the Mariner. That alone should be telling. The place is great. Location unbeatable. Views unforgettable. Justin as a host incomparable. Spotless unit. Very comfortable and updated. Stacking washer dryer. Bed in back bedroom pictured here very comfortable King. Offsite parking at the Peg Leg Motel about a quarter mile away included. The central AC was out during our stay and Justin installed two window box units for our comfort which worked perfectly. He reduced our rate for the inconvenience but we did not oblige as he was swift in rectifying the deficit. Also tells you something. I would give The Mariner a 97% which is overall my best rating. It would be 100% if he allowed crated dogs as Rockport is a very dog friendly little town. His unit, his rules and I gotta respect that! Stay here as long as you don't take our week! You would be hard pressed to find a better place.
