A wonderful stay in Rockport

Having moved to the North Shore to start a new job, it was no easy task to find an off-season rental that was affordable but also in a great location. Always Summer was that place - ideally situated in scenic Rockport, it is within easy reach of 128, a half mile walk from the commuter rail line into Boston, and a great base for exploring the island of Gloucester.
All required amenities were modern, well maintained and the landlady very attentive to my questions on things. I found the house exactly as described on the website, and would heartily recommend it to anyone looking accommodation in the Gloucester area (or beyond).
Rockport itself is quiet offseason, however Gloucester, Essex and Manchester are all within easy reach for dining out. Also ideal if you are a runner, or a cyclist - 127A provides some great routes.
In short, a great home and a great location.
Owner's Response: Thanks Kirk! It was a pleasure to have you!! Jane

Visit from Finland!

We stayed with our family at 9 Summer St. in October 2011 and enjoyed it very much. Everything was clean and well organized, and all the possible utilities and appliances were provided. Both floors have a bathroom and the one upstairs has a Jacuzzi that was our kids'
favorite! Jane, Joyce and Miranda were very friendly and helpful, and we had no problems whatsoever, although we came from the other side of the globe (northern Scandinavia), and this was our first real touch with the United States. The kitchen is huge with an island in the middle that makes it very convenient for family gatherings.

The location of the house was excellent: the nearest beaches and downtown are within 10 min walking distance. Hence, we managed without a car, although a car is surely recommended to reach the nearest supermarkets in Gloucester (there is no proper grocery store in Rockport). There were brochures and maps with clearly marked directions available in the house. Every weekday I was commuting to Boston with the commuter rail that has a station at 10 min walking distance from the house. This was very convenient as the train was always on time, has a WIFI, and the ocean views are very nice. We also found cheap (~$1) local buses (CATA) that go from Rockport to Gloucester along different routes, e.g., through the Halibut State Park.

Overall, we were extremely happy with our experience at 9 Summer St and would warmly recommend it to anyone, including international visitors, families with children of all ages, and people working in the Boston area! Thank you Jane!

Delightful Winter Rental 2010-2011

I was so comfortable and happy at 9 Summer Street that I think back on it as one of my homes.
I stayed at Jane’s cottage for the “winter rental” when I relocated back to New England. I chose it sight unseen other than the website and was thrilled to see it was just as pretty as the pictures.
It was spacious but cozy, modern but charming and … immaculate!
Jane has experience as a landlord and it shows: she is quick to respond to any problems or concerns, but definitely gives you privacy. She has the whole renting process down to a science.
During my stay I enjoyed lovely walks from this ideal location. Both the ocean and quaint shops are only about ten minutes away, yet the neighborhood is quiet and residential. The commuter train into Boston came in very handy.
I would recommend 9 Summer Street as an amazing winter rental and can’t wait to return one day for a summer vacation.

We visit Rockport because we enjoy its slow quiet pace and village atmosphere and we found this is the perfect home for our visit. The home is very comfortable with all the amenities you could ask for and a spacious Kitchen where the whole family can gather to eat or plan your day. The location is excellent. It is a nice easy walk to either the shops at Bearskin Neck or Front beach depending on if you choose a lazy beach day or shopping day. We have young children and there is also a local playground which we walked to after Dinner so that they could burn off any extra energy they might have in reserve before bed time. The home is very clean, updated, fenced in yard and located on a quiet street. We look forward to returning each year.

I had an absolutely amazing time in Always-Summer, Rockport for the six or so months that I lived there. It was great to do a short-term lease like that since I had never lived in the Boston area before. Just knowing that I could live comfortably for six months while I looked for a long term place to stay for the remainder of my four year coast guard tour here was a huge lift off my shoulders. Jane made it super easy to get everything set up even as I was stationed overseas when I first made contact with her. At one point during my stay I had to leave for a month due to work. Jane looked after the house for me, checked my mail and was nice enough to let me pay certain bills after I got back. Not only is she a great landlord to have, she's a wonderful person. I couldn't be happier with my decision to stay at 9 Summer St.
