Sweet side street stay

  • 5 of 5

the property was as advertised. clean and cozy, perfect for our little family. Everything we needed was there, parking was right out front and we were just a steps away from everything downtown. We would definitely stay again.

Amazing Property

  • 5 of 5

The house was amazing. It was very clean and very comfortable. The location was in walking distance to the shops in Rockport ( always difficult to park near the shops ) and the beach. The owners were very nice and accommodating. I would recommend this property not only for the location but for the house itself and the owners!!

Perfect location & Super cozy

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here with our hyperactive 7yr old, a teenager and our 4yr old. Location was super quiet, great private yard with bbq, place to eat, outdoor shower. Super safe, so much so that my 7 & 4 yr old played outside by themselves out front, not in the yard. Owners are really nice, very informative and helpful. House was fully equipped with everything you need. Less than 2 blocks to the beach, less than a block to a beautiful park, quick walk to downtown, Bearskin Neck and right around the corner from the train to Boston.

We will stay here again!!!

Peaceful, cozy home in charming town

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time in Rockport and surroundings, and Fran and Frank's home provided all the comforts we needed to make our stay a pleasant one. The kitchen is well-stocked (it even has a lobster pot), the beds are comfortable, and the living area has plenty of space for relaxing. We would definitely stay there again.

Fran and Frank's place was the perfect spot for my family of three to enjoy Rockport! Their place was very clean, in a darling neighborhood that's an easy walk to town and fully equipped with all we could need to be comfortable!! I appreciated the special touches throughout that made us feel at home. Fran was easy to reach if we had any questions! Two thumbs up from us! Thank you!!
