3BR ON QUIET PRIVATE LANE, WALK TO SHOPS, BEACHES, TRAIN

Rockport House Rental Photos and Description

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. Beaches, shops, art galleries, restaurants, and Rockport Harbor are all just a five-minute walk from your door.

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 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 tidepools 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.

BEST HOUSE WE HAVE RENTED!!!

  • 5 of 5
This was our second stay at this beautiful Rockport home. We have rented many homes over the years and this is by far my FAVORITE!!!!' The owners leave wonderfully detailed directions, they provide all of the amenities you will need on your stay. They are kind and communicative renters. The home is situated on a beautiful dead end lane with space for the kids to safely play. The neighbors are very friendly. There are fruit trees, a garden, blueberry bushes and a children's play house. We enjoyed sitting in the yard, admiring the beautiful flowers and grilling dinner. The home is roomy, clean and just plain comfortable. Staying in this rental is definitely a favorite of our family. We feel as though we have a home away from home in one of the most beautiful places on earth. I would recommend this rental every time and look forward to returning again and again. Also within walking distance to Bearskin Neck and the beautiful shops, a definite bonus. Just a wonderful experience all around.

SPACIOUS, COMFORTABLE, AND CONVENIENT - DEFINITELY RECOMMEND

  • 5 of 5
My family group of 6 spent the better part of a week at this house. We found it just as described, with plenty of room for everyone to sleep, eat, and spread out. The location is ideal for walking to the smaller beaches, and the shops in Rockport. Larger beaches are a close drive away. The kitchen is well-provided, and even supplied with common items like cooking oil and coffee. We cook real meals from scratch most nights, so this is important to us. My kids enjoyed the assortment of games on hand, and we all enjoyed the quiet neighborhood after a busy school and work year.

PERFECT FOR WHAT WE NEEDED!

  • 5 of 5
The house was exactly what we were needing - a place for a few family members to stay while visiting, nothing super fancy, but comfortable, warm, and close to downtown Rockport. Owners were wonderful - very accommodating.
Highly recommend! We will stay here again, if the need arises.

WE'LL BE BACK!

We'll be back!
  • 5 of 5
The setting, home, and property were perfect for our family. The eat-in kitchen is large, 3 bedrooms fit everyone well, washer & dryer is very appreciated, and yard with playhouse was loved by the kids! We took advantage of walking to the beach, downtown, and Cumberland Farms for milk. The kids enjoyed the games and toys in the living room, and I appreciated the cleanliness and one-level living with the baby! This cottage lane has just three homes on it, so it is a very quiet area. The owners were extremely helpful, quick to return communications when planning our stay, and made themselves available during it if we needed anything. Don't hesitate to stay in this well-loved, homey, warm, and welcoming home. I know we'll be back. :)

WONDERFUL HOME FOR FAMILIES

  • 5 of 5
My husband and rented this home in August of 2011 with our 3 children, ages 15, 8, and 4. We had a wonderful time! We were able to walk to the beach and shops on Bearskin neck. Easy walking to anywhere in town really.
The home itself is lovely with all of the amenities of home. The owners were more then generous in the items they supplied with the house for renters. We were delighted to find peach and pear trees in the back yard, a grill for cooking out, a playhouse for the kids and fresh cucumbers and tomatoes in the garden. It is located on a very quiet street so that we did not have to worry about our children accidentally getting near the traffic.
I rate this as one of the nicest rentals we have ever had, coming to Rockport for the last 8 out of 9 years. We would and probably will rent this home again. The owners were wonderful to work with and very accomodating with any questions we had. A definate thumbs up for families!

The owner was thorough & easy to deal with, providing lots of information about local spots.

The house is lovely, with a very nice kitchen and plenty of space.

Our group came to spend quiet time working on writing projects, and found the location perfect - the house was comfortable. We enjoyed staying in for dinner and games together each evening and had easy walking access to the beaches & shops of Rockport. It was also an easy walk to the commuter train.

We'd love to return to this rental!
