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.

Delightful Thanksgiving Week in Rockport

  • 5 of 5

The Mariner was perfect! The view of Motif #1 and the harbor is incredible. The apartment is set up beautifully and has absolutely everything a family (up to 4) could want. We loved being able to walk to all the shops and restaurants so easily. The property was immaculate and the owner was very helpful and responsive. We look forward to another stay at The Mariner in the future.
