Historic Home On The Water!

We just got home from one of the best vacations we've taken. We stayed at "The Little Red House" for a week and it was exactly what we had hoped for. The home was built in 1720 and has so much character. We had gorgeous ocean views from the living room and our bedroom upstairs. Our 4 year old son was with us and didn't have a problem with the steep stairs. The house is in an amazing location. You can walk to the beach or downtown in less than 5 minutes. There are several shops and restaurants downtown to keep you busy when you're not at the beach. On rainy days, we explored Hammond Castle and the Historical Museum in Wenham. When the weather was sunny, we went to Halibut State Park and some of the many local beaches.
But the best part of our visit was our tour guide, Judy. She made sure that we had everything we needed in the house and knew where all of the best places in town were. Judy has a lot of pride in Rockport and "The Red House" that she watches over. As Judy mentions, the house is not for everyone. It does not have granite in the kitchen or modern ammenities. But, if you're looking for a charming home with loads of character and in a superb location - the "Little Red House" is perfect! We will definitely return.

A Cozy Piece of History

My mother, sister and I stayed here for 5 days. We've visited Cape Ann several times over, staying briefly at inns or motels, but never actually lived in one of the charming historic cottages we so admired and dreamed about as we walked around the area. The cottage was everything we hoped for and more - a cute little kitchen with all necessities; a comfy, sunny dining room where we enjoyed our breakfasts, and a beamed-ceiling living room complete with working fireplace for cozy evenings. The 2 upstairs bedrooms were well furnished and cozy as well, and the serene view from the front bedroom and the living room: over the historic cemetery to the ocean, was as inspiring as it was beautiful. The small staircase to the bedrooms is steep, but it was no problem even for my 70 year old mom. The location couldn't be more perfect for walks into town, local day trips and jogging along the coast. Judy, who co-manages the cottage, knows everyone and everything around, is totally helpful, informative and charming. We definitely look forward to staying here again.

Loved our stay

My husband, 2 sons and I spent 2 weeks at this house this summer for the first time and loved it! It is in a wonderful spot, especially for a family like us that wants to be very close to the beach and park, but not on the main road itself. Having a dedicated parking space (just down the road, not at the house itself) in Rockport is also a great bonus, as parking can be tricky, especially over 4th of July when we were there. The house itself is old, creaky and very charming. We loved the private backyard for sitting in the evenings. Having some creature comforts like tv, wifi, and a window a/c unit were great when the weather was hot or too rainy for our usual Rockport fun. The quirky kitchen is extremely tiny, so don't plan any all day cooking marathons, but is very functional with a fridge, small oven, and microwave all there. If you want slick modern place, then this isn't for you. BUT, if you are looking for a place that reflects all the charm of Rockport and it's history, then you will love it here. We can't wait to come back in 2013!

The Little Red House, Rockport

We stayed at the,"Little Red House" in September, 2011. The house is a historical gem. I felt privileged to stay in a house that is such a real piece of history in the Cape Ann area.
The house is small and feels wonderfully cozy. Although an old building, the house has all the conveniences one needs - a nice bathroom (although you have to go through the second bedroom to get to it) with claw-footed tub, a (quite) small kitchen, a nice dining room and a good-sized sitting room from which you can see the beach.
The furnishings are not "ritzy" but they fit the house very well. Nothing looked out of place. In keeping with this, if one is looking for a "polished" rental, this is not for you, but if you are looking for cozy, warm, and comfortable, this is a great place.
I liked that the house is surrounded by a fence; I could let my dog outside without worrying about her. As well as being very centrally located, the house is also next door to a town park which was a nice place to take my dog and to walk in the early a.m.
Judy, who tends to the property for the owner, was extremely helpful and very accommodating. When I had to stay an extra night, she could not have been nicer or more helpful.
One day the owner, Clif, came by to mow the lawn, and he was very nice - he brought along a pie and some lovely freshly baked bread. I got the sense that he truly loves his, "Little Red House".

What a splendid 2 weeks we had in "our" unique Little Red House with its little green yard: we enjoyed being able to walk to galleries and shops, the memorable Lobster shack and informal restaurants, and the stunning new Performance Arts Centre. We found hidden walks and surprising old quarry pools, and local bus and train services took us to many nearby historic towns. But we were always happy to get back to relax in our characterful 1720 home. It was perfect for 2 wrinklies [but because of the guestroom/bathroom arrangement, you must invite only your closest friends/family to stay!]. The unforgettable, ever-helpful Judy was a gem.
