About Andee Post

Andee has been married for 24 years. We are a family of 4 with a background in Restaurants, Theatre, Real Estate, and History. Andee is a realtor in New Jersey.Her husband is in the restaurant business in NYC. We love to visit Rockport and our friends there every chance we get!

Andee Post purchased this house in 2008

Why Andee Post chose Rockport

My best friend grew up coming to Rockport every summer of her childhood. I had the chance to visit with her one summer and fell in love with the village! After I married, my best friend and I came back for a summer vacation. She with her firstborn and I with mine, we were both pregnant at the time. We made it a point to summer in Rockport every year from then on! When my little family out grew our favorite room #9 in The Tuck Inn we decided it was time to have our own place. We wanted a property that was close to town, but away from the hustle and bustle in order to enjoy the peaceful Rockport evenings.

When we found Hooper House we knew the house had been waiting for us! It had just the right combination of old and new. Hooper House was originally a 2 family home for fishing families built around 150 years ago.

Now we pop in during the summer as well as the other seasons. It has become my children's tradition and hopefully one day their children's!

What makes this house unique

Hooper House is close to town and far enough away to not be disturbed by other visitors. We have the best neighbors! You can park 2 cars tandem and not use them if you want. There is a train to Boston, Salem and Newburyport. Those are some of our favorite go to spots. You can even take the train to Gloucester if you want. It's a short walk to all the downtown hot spots. Rockport is a great place to walk and take in all the 'Kodak moments' around every corner. We like to walk off our meal after eating at one of our fine seaside restaurants. Because Cape Ann ('The Other Cape') is strategically positioned in the Atlantic Ocean the colors of sunrise and sunset in Rockport have attracted artists from all over the world to paint and photograph.

A perfect summer holiday!

  • 5 of 5
We have just returned from a wonderful time at Hooper House. It helped that we seemed to choose the best week for weather, but the house was also excellent. Everything had been thought of, from chairs to take down to the beach, to lots of information on where to go. The location was perfect- we walked into Rockport most evenings, and took the train into Boston, rather than have to think about parking. The town of Rockport is charming. The house itself was very light and clean, with plenty of space. We had a family of 4 staying there, with an extra guest for 2 nights, but it would take 6 people easily. We would highly recommend this lovely property. The raft by one of the beaches was a great success with our teenage sons!

Great location and has everything you need!

  • 5 of 5
When coming back to Rockport we know where to stay, and returned for a second time to Hooper House. Just as before, we had a great time, with a few upgrades (if memory serves I think there are newer tv's now, as well as some appliances). Accommodations were comfy for our family of four, and included everything we needed to make our stay feel like home (linens, kitchen cooking/baking supplies, wifi laundry - a must for people with kids!). Andee, the owner, is always easy to reach and is quick to respond to questions. Location is perfect, as you can walk to Front Beach or downtown in about 10-15 minutes. The neighbors were friendly (though not at all intrusive). The house really felt like a home to us, and we'd return again; as well as recommend it to friends. It's also reasonably priced in comparison to other places in the area. Highly recommended! Thanks again, Andee!

BEST VALUE EVER!

  • 5 of 5
We had not expected to be so over-delivered on a simple week long house rental. This is the best value I have found in many a year. It was less than 1/2 the price of 2 motel rooms and with a full kitchen and multiple bathrooms, it also was 10 times more room than a motel room would have been. It was super clean, smelled fresh, everything is in working order. I could not be happier. Frank in Puyallup

Perfect !

  • 5 of 5
We hit the jackpot with this house - there was plenty of space for myself, my husband and 2 daughters. It is in a quiet street but a short walk to the shops and beaches in Rockport. The house is light, clean and comfortable and well equipped. The beach chairs and boogie boards were v. handy. There is residents and meter parking everywhere in Rockport so being able to walk into town was great. My husband didn't mind dropping us off at front beach and then driving back to the house to drop off the car and walk back. There are also v. nice restaurants in town and the super market is a short drive. I would recommend the delicious take out pizza from Atlantic Pizza Co. We did not want to leave !

Hooper House is a great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5
We were so comfortable at Hooper House! Our family (2 adults, a 3yo, and a baby) has a great time there, and had plenty of space to feel relaxed. With 3 bedrooms and a pullout couch, you could sleep more people easily. (correct me if I'm wrong, I think 2 beds are doubles, and one is a queen). AC in the bedrooms is a bonus too. The house was well stocked with all the appliances, linens, and beach equipment (chairs, umbrellas, and toys) we needed. The yard had nice grass and landscaping, and was perfect for lounging in the chairs while watching our son play during down time. Echoing other reviews, the house was very clean! There were also movies, games, and wifi. It was also a nice convenience to have a large washer and dryer. It just felt really comfortable and spacious. We would definitely stay there again!!


About the location:
The house is super close to Bearskin Neck (shopping/food), and to Front Beach - which is about a 15 min walk if you are pushing a stroller. (Side note: Front Beach is a smaller beach, but has bathrooms which is a plus). We also visited Long Beach and Cape Hedge - both beautiful, big beaches that are an easy drive of less than 10 mins. A big grocery store is about 10-15 mins away, but there are a couple convenience stores within walking distance. Rockport is a beautiful seaside spot. We go at least once a year, and are glad to have found our new favorite rental!

Overall - Hooper House is highly recommended! Thank you to the owners, we had an excellent time :)

6 Hooper House was exactly what we needed!!

  • 5 of 5
Driving into this quaint, little, serene town was evident as soon as we entered Rockport. The house, located on a very quiet dead end street had everything we needed. It was a short walk to the center of town. In fact, I walked every morning and sat upon rocks and meditated overlooking the water. The people were extremely friendly. The house was clean and tidy and had a cute little backyard with a relaxing sitting area. My wife and I already inquired about booking another week at hooper house!!
