Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

This peaceful location on a quiet lane just outside of Rockport's downtown offers an easy place from which to enjoy the best that this world-renowned sea-side art colony has to offer.

A five minute walk takes you directly into the heart of Rockport's downtown, full of art galleries, quaint shops, restaurants, and home of the Shalin Liu Performance Center, Rockport Chamber Music Festival, and Rockport Art Association. Boat tours leave regularly from two wharves, and you can rent sea kayaks, go deep sea-fishing, or climb the rocks at the end of Bearskin Neck and watch the sun set over the harbor and the famous Motif #1 fishing shack.

The same short walk brings you to Front Beach, with its fine swimming and scenic views of Rockport's coastline for adults, and gradual slope and tide pools that delight children. Along the way you will pass the lane leading to Millbrook Meadow, an oasis-like park with a pond, waterfall, babbling brook, and large lawn with swings and slide.

A short drive takes you to Halibut Point state park for ocean-view hiking, or to the neighboring seaport city of Gloucester. The train to Boston is only a five minute walk away.

Our house has a private yard with a garden, patio, fruit trees, and even a small playhouse for children. In addition to a queen, a full, two twin beds, and queen-size pull-out sofa, a crib is available. A sunny eat-in kitchen and family room provide plenty of space to relax. There is ample parking for two to four cars.

The perfect family home to stay away in

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful stay at this home and didn't want to leave the last day. Priscilla was a wonderful host and made everything so easy. We traveled with a 2 year old and are expecting so having this wonderful family oriented home very close to the beach and the center of town was amazing. We can't wait to come back!!

Clean, home-like, lovely stay!

  • 4 of 5

Our group of four were in town for a family get together, and this hhouse was the perfect stay. Everything you would need...comfortable, and a very home like feel. We look forward to another stay, perhaps in the spring sometime!

Lovely house with perfect location

  • 5 of 5

It is just far enough out of the downtown to be quiet. But close enough to easily walk into the beach or the wonderful quaint village center

Great place

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay in Rockport. Nice quiet neighborhood. Friendly neighbors. We definitely recommend this home. Very glad we got to meet the owners. Wonderful and helpful folks. Once you are stocked up on groceries, everything is within walking distance. Six of us stayed there, and the single bathroom was not an issue. Also nice to have everything on one level. Washer and dryer in the basement, but we did not need to use them. Thank you Priscilla!

P.S. You should update the photo of the house as the new paint job is great.

Perfect summer cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here. It is roomy with a huge kitchen, beautiful back yards & plenty of parking. A 10-minute walk to downtown & Bearskin Neck or the T. Definitely would love to return next year!!
