Located at the mouth of Bearskin Neck this incredible 2 bedroom condo is 20 ft to Rockport Harbor. You can sit in the living room, or your deck and watch the comings and goings of Rockport Harbor, and the famous Motif #1. Walk through the nicely renovated 2 bedroom condo, and you can view all the activity of Bearskin Neck from your bedroom window. Totally in-town location, yet unsurpassed views of the Harbor. Only a 2 minute walk to the beautiful newly constructed Shalin Liu Performance Center! Only a 5 minute walk to Front Beach, a family friendly beach and swimming area.
The condo itself is spacious and has a fully appliance kitchen. Decorated with style you can come home from a day of shopping, site-seeing, or sailing to a cozy and oh-so picturesque spot. This place is Quintessential Bearskin Neck... You will enjoy it!
Please visit the webcam at bluefishpropertycam(dot)blogspot(dot)com - you get the same view as the camera!
There are new picture windows in the living room for even cleaner views of the harbor. Additionally, we've upgraded our air conditioning system to a new Mitsubishi heat pump system that will quietly keep you very comfortable on hot days.
Marcella Partners bought this home in 2009 as it was in an area our Grandmother truly enjoyed. She always enjoyed Bearskin Neck, and we think she might have even been inside the building (in the past it was a boat house, and a bowling alley). It was purchased as an investment property, but we have enjoyed staying many weekends in the home as we renovated it.

Views, views, views... nothing like looking out to Rockport Harbor with a nice cup of coffee in the morning.
We relaxed, toasted our anniversary, stared out the windows, walked the village. Enjoyed the boats, snow, sun & wind. Birds, coziness and happiness. Our joy also renewed love for Rockport.
This property has an excellent location. It is also very well maintained. The managers are very easy to get in touch with if there are any questions.
This is my favorite place to unwind. The large living room windows and deck provide an intimate view of the inner bay primarily occupied by independent lobsterman. The windows are perfectly sized to allow both a view from the comfort of the living room couches, and a lovely breeze off the bay.
Shortly preceeding an amazing view of the sunrise from this vantage, you can watch lobsterman start their day, quietly navigating out of the bay in darkness. As the day progresses, the calm of the bay is nicely contrasted by people leisurely walking Bearskin Neck Road, enjoying shops & restaurants on the opposite side of the building. Night fall at our recent visit provided us with a spectacular view of Motif #1 backlit by September's Harvest moon with a star filled sky free of light pollution.
I tied a paddle board to the closest dock in the bay w/ the Harbor Master's blessing and enjoyed morning and sunset paddling to the outer bay where I'm pretty sure I caught site of a whale and a pair of sea otters in the inner bays. The rear deck adjoining the unit has room to secure a bicycle and Cape Anne offers a lovely ~20 mile route around its circumference which w/ some exploring can be done in a couple hours on roads with nice shoulders & mindful drivers. It was a treat to be able to enjoy a week here with our two pups that are allowed after Sept. 15th to enjoy the towns beaches & parks. The neighbors are wonderful people that were kind enough to tolerate their occasional shenanigans.
I remember my grandmother enjoying Rockport 50+ years ago, and after returning only a few years ago, find myself pleasantly immersed in the beauty of this place. Truly the perfect escape when you need one!
Once again, I was NOT disappointed with my stay at Marcella by the Sea. I just love the property and everything that goes along with it- convenience, beautiful view,friendly neighbors-even the occasional fog! This was my fifth year and I'll be going back next year as well.
We've stayed here a few times now, and always enjoyed it. Every time we've come back, something has been upgraded, they are continuously investing in the property. The neighbors have always been welcoming and friendly. We've never had any problems with noise at all, we bring a white noise machine for the bedroom while we sleep.
Perfect location for watching fascinating harbor activity just outside the window. Lobsterman departing early in the morning to check their traps and returning with their catch, young sailors in their sunfish having a regatta just off the mouth of the rocky neck. Great town for walking day or night with art and concert venues within steps of the condo. The two bedroom is Comfortably furnished with great facility for cooking your own lobster. Brad the owner was helpful and accommodating. We loved our week here !
Ideal location, fantastic harbor views from the living room and patio. Comfortable accommodations, well stocked kitchen and helpful management. Slight issue with off site parking and steep stairs but would still book this condo again-great value for the price. Harvestfest was fun but do note that after Columbus Day many restaurants and shops have either already closed or have erratic days and hours of operation. Red Sciff and Nate's both good for breakfast (Nate's closes for the winter starting November 1st) and of course Roy Moores and Fish shack a main staple.
Located in Historic Bearskin Neck - 35 Miles North of Boston.
Other Activities: Shopping, Boating. Close to Gloucester, Essex, Ipswich, Newburyport, Beverly, Salem, Marblehead
