Stately antique Colonial facing the village green and harbor-front shops; period charm fully intact while updated with modern amenities.

The house includes 4 fireplaces, wide pine floors, large TV with access to our Netflix, HBO GO and Hulu Plus accounts, DVD player, high-speed wireless internet, and washer/dryer. The backyard includes a propane BBQ grill, outdoor fire pit, and plenty of seating flowing out from the kitchen. Walk just a few minutes to Front Beach or just across the street to all the harbor-front shops, restaurants, and Bearskin Neck! Enjoy true Rockport village and beach life right out your front door.

Off-street parking for one vehicle. We can help you to arrange off-site parking for an additional car if necessary.

The house sleeps 7 people in beds and can accommodate 2 additional on the pull-out sofa in the TV room if desired. Sleeping spaces include:

- 2 upstairs master bedroom suites with en-suite full bathrooms and Queen beds

- Connected to each upstairs suite is an additional small bedroom with a Twin bed in each. Perfect for kids!

- Living room couch that pulls out to a Queen bed

- We’ve also been known to doze off on the loungers out back and the various couches

On the ground floor of the house there is a separate "in-law" apartment with queen sized bedroom, kitchenette and bathroom. This space remains empty during the Summer and is not included in this rental - but can be by request if you are a large group and would like the extra space.

Amazing vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at 1 High Street, Rockport, for several years and it has become our favorite family vacation spot. The home is spotless, updated, spacious and has every comfort we need! The small yard with grill and fire pit are a wonderful way to relax in the evenings. The location is amazing - walking distance to Rockport's Front Beach, and all shops and restaurants. The owner has been fantastic to work with and we have never had a problem. We had stayed at many places in Rockport before we found 1 High Street - and now we will never stay anywhere else!

Beautiful house, the BEST location

  • 5 of 5

This house is amazing. Historic and charming but also cozy and very well equipped. We felt at home as soon as we walked in the door. We really enjoyed walking to the beach every day and the kids loved watching movies every night. We cooked in most meals and really appreciated how well equipped the kitchen was and loved the outdoor BBQ grill. We hope to be back!

Not as advertised

  • 2 of 5

The owner was very accommodating with our early arrival. The rear yard patio and fire pit were nice. However, there did not appear to be any smoke detectors (a serious safety issue ) especially in a home which is this old. The hardwood floors were sagging and hidden by some area rugs. The lower level apartment ceilings were so low - don't rent this space if you are tall. The advertised king pull out bed in the first floor bedroom couldn't be pulled out unless the bedroom door was left wide open into the only room in the house which had a TV. The kitchen was not well equipped (understatement). Didn't use it at all except to boil some water for tea. No storage for food (the pantry was taken up by "owner's items - please respect"). The refrigerator was dormitory sized. The boxes of ant traps in the pantry did not give us a warm feeling - hire an exterminator. No A/C on the first floor - very uncomfortable. No exterior hose for washing up after the beach. Landscaping was overgrown and not well maintained. The family photos throughout the house made it feel like we were staying with strangers.

Owner's Response: Hi Davis, given your comments are so vastly different from everyone else, combined with your many many phone calls to complain about the town of Rockport in general, I think you may have chosen the wrong vacation spot. Next time you visit New England I’d recommend a modern hotel in the bustling city of Boston. Where there are big grocery stores and more restaurants (to alleviate those complaints from you) , and the hotels don’t have historic king pine flooring nor any family photos on the walls. To address one of your incorrect comments regarding smoke detectors – our house is equipped with a state of the art, integrated Fire and Break-in alarm system. It will automatically contact the Rockport fire station with an alert to heat or smoke. I’m sorry you were looking for the old style battery operated ones fastened onto ceilings. I wish you had asked us about this during one of your phone calls and we would have happily pointed you to the system. We advertise our house as an “antique colonial” and have included over 15 photos of the house and patio. The many other reviews describe our house as cozy, charming and amazing. In fact we tell you in the house details, that it was built in 1790 and is one of the original iconic houses on the village square. So I don’t believe anything we advertise is false. I’m sorry to hear you don’t appreciate historic character in a house or town.

Charming home!!! Lots of character! Very convenient to everything!!

  • 5 of 5

This house was amazing! The 1700s charm was so cool, the location was incredible, easy walk to all the shops, beaches and farmers Market. We enjoyed the backyard, great walks and cool breezes through the window. If you're looking for charm and location, this is the place!!!
