Rockport House Rental Photos and Description

4BR (sleeps 7), 2.5 baths & outside shower

'Periwinkle' is a sunny village Colonial home built in 1810 and updated in 2007.  Located a block from the ocean, there are peeks of the water from the second floor and a beautiful ocean view from the third floor master suite. You can walk to Rockport's Front or Back Beach in moments ... take your morning coffee or lunch/dinner picnic and enjoy the spectacular scenery, swim, collect sea glass or explore the tidal pools. The house is a five minute walk to the quaint village of Rockport, famed for its seaside shops, art galleries, and the freshest lobster and seafood you can buy.  In Rockport and all around Cape Ann, you will find some of New England's most beautiful sandy beaches, golf courses, hiking, boating and whale watching. After a day on the beach, enjoy your dinner outside in the garden. There are many ice cream shops nearby for dessert!  On Summer Sunday evenings there is a concert at the Back Beach bandstand just steps from the house.

Absolutely Perfect!!!

  • 5 of 5
My sisters and I arrived from 4 different states to celebrate our mother's 80th birthday and we could not have taken her to a better place. The house was perfectly maintained and simply beautiful. We were within walking distance, even for our mom, from all the great shops and restaurants. The homeowner met us at the house, gave us the grand tour, along with written information of great places to go--The Lobster Pool was incredible, as was every place she suggested. We spent the evenings talking, laughing and drinking great wine. The days were spent going in and out of shops and meeting so many locals. We took her to the Strudel House we had gone to 30+ years ago on a vacation and sat outside eating the best pastries and drinking coffee on the stone wall surrounding the flowers just outside the front door of the shop!! Simply wonderful and now we have more memories to talk about when we return again. I'm even thinking we should bring our children and their spouses so they can share great memories with us. The one thing we could have used, but didn't find, an iron & ironing board--we not only survived without it, we laughed and laughed when the owner told us on the phone that nobody had ever asked for one before--I guess we momentarily forgot we weren't at home--that's how comfortable we were. Did I mention it was cold and rainy almost the entire time we were there? The weather simply made it even nicer to come back to the house at the end of our day. We had such fun the weather wasn't even a distraction. Actually, we probably enjoyed the clam chowder even more. The flowers in bloom everywhere we looked brightened everything up. The only thing I would mention, although it was not an issue for our stay, is that the bedrooms are on the second and third floors. That could be a problem either for people with mobility limits or perhaps for families with young children.

Great week in Rockport

  • 5 of 5
This is a great property at which to stay, particularly if you value proximity to town and beach. The owners are very nice, accommodating, and responsive -- you really feel like you are at home. The property is well maintained and the outdoor shower with hot water is key if you spend time at the beach. The one caveat I would make is that this is a house originally built in the early 1800s so the layout is not ideal if you have toddlers running around -- the floor plan is choppy and the stairs are steep and narrow. Other than that, I highly recommend this property.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5
Just spent a great week here in Rockport. The location was perfect - walking distance to town and beaches. The outdoor shower was fabulous and a big hit! Lisa was lovely and couldn't have been more accommodating.
Steep stairs are a little tricky for small children...

Great location, Great layout!

House was just as it appeared in the photos!
Everything was clean, and well thought out and organized. Lisa has an entire drawer of menus, activities, nearby attractions, etc.
Kitchen was well stocked, and we enjoyed many great meals all week.
Perfect location- close to the beach and easy to walk into town.
The house was perfect for my family, and we can't wait to be back next summer!

Great Location and Seaside Charm

  • 5 of 5
We chose this house for a family wedding we were attending and from the get go the experience was great. The owner, Lisa, was available to answer all of our questions, was at the house to greet us and show us around the house and even provided information on where to go and things that were going on in town. The house itself is over 200 years old with tons of charm. The kitchen is quaint with cottage charm, the living room was spacious enough to seat everyone, the bedrooms were spacious and lovely. The master on the third floor was terrific with views of the ocean. The only draw backs were the stairs which were steep but that's because it's a 200 year old house and there was no air conditioning which we didn't need at that time of year. It may get hotter later in the summer but with the windows open and the fans going you should be fine.

The house is within 5 minutes to both beaches and less than a 10 minute leisurely walk into town. Rockport is adorable and had I known The Proposal was filmed there I would have taken more pictures. Grocery stores and pharmacies are within a 15 minute drive. Gloucester was within 20 minutes and had a lot of stores and restaurants also. The people in the entire area were some of the nicest I've met and loved to give suggestions on things to do or places to visit.

If we ever visit the area again we'll definitely stay here again. If we lived closer, I'd try to buy it - it's that cute.

A charming New England Home

  • 5 of 5
This is a charming, 200-year old home! It was very clean and cozy and well-maintained. One possibly challenging feature is that the stairs to the bedrooms are steep and shallow. If that isn't a concern for you, then this is a great house! We took our coffee up to the incredible master suite on the 3rd floor every morning to soak in the incredible view and we were lulled to sleep by the sound of the ocean every night! Lisa was so nice! She met us at check in and gave us great dining tips as well as suggestions for things to do and see. We only stayed for four nights, which wasn't long enough. Lisa keeps the bird feeders in her yard stocked with food and all the neighborhood birds know it. In addition to the lovely ocean music, we were treated to endless bird song, as well.
