Another Wonderful Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

After staying at Holbrook House for two years now I honestly can't imagine staying anywhere else in Rockport. From it's wonderful, relaxed atmosphere, lovely layout and seemingly endless amenities to the absolutely ideal location there's virtually nothing we don't like about staying here. You are steps away from the beach and town. Don't want to eat out? There's a fully equipped eat in kitchen inside and a lovely deck and grill outside! Our boys spent the evenings in the "reading nook" and playing with the blocks and games we found waiting on the shelves. There's even a plentiful supply of up to date brochures and recommendations on activities and place to eat. And can we talk about the fully stocked Keurig!?

I'm already looking at the calendar for next year!

A great place for a weekend visit (or longer)

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Holbrook House over a long weekend. The house is easy to find, in a nice neighborhood, is well appointed, and very comfortable. There is excellent wifi, for those who want to get online. Check in was a breeze. The owner came to show us around and are sure we were comfortable.

Note - If you have small children, this is an excellent option. While there is a flight of stairs to get to the main level, it is easily closed off with a door and everything you need is on one level. The owners even have a few toys and books available for younger kids!

Terrific place for a get away!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were warmly greeted by Fran and Frank and went upstairs into the cottage. The living room and 2 bedrooms have beautiful polished wooden floors that make the cottage feel warm and inviting. The kitchen has all the pots, pans, and cooking utensils anyone could need. Pack your favorite spices and you'll be all set if you choose to cook. The bedrooms are large with double closets and they each have a dresser. There are cards, games and some kids toys to pass the time on rainy days.

The beach, and downtown of Rockport all the way to the end of Bear's Neck are within walking distance. Many restaurants and ice cream shops are also nearby. It's a great location and warm and inviting place to return to at the end of a busy day. We hope to return again!

Comfortable compact well equipped in peaceful part of town

  • 5 of 5

Ideal for 2 couples or family. You can enjoy town of Rockport as well as the surrounding charms of C. Ann. Frank's thumbnail guide to restaurants was spot on.

Perfect location to relax but be close to everything

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Rockport in August 2017! The village of Rockport is such a great getaway. It offers a quaint atmosphere where you can enjoy beautiful beaches, great food and amazing architecture - all at once. We visited with our two kids (age 7 and 10) and we really enjoyed staying at the Holbrook House. The cottage is a fantastic place (even more attractive in person than in pictures). It is very conveniently located (just minutes away from the beach), very cozy, clean, and nicely organized. The owner was very attentive and available to answer questions. Highly recommended!!!

Great location!

Nice house, great location, calm and only 5 minutes from the beach. Cap Ann is a nice region and Rockport is a nice and relax town.

We recommend!
