My husband spent summers in Rockport as a child. His grandparents moved there from Boston in the 50's. We vacationed here together when we met 30 years ago and then brought our family for summer vacation every year. When the family house had sold, we discovered Grey Gull and have been vacationing there for the past several years. The house is very comfortable and the location is unsurpassed. We love sitting on the front lawn, listening to the waves crash on the rocks and watching the lobster boats go by. The harbor and beaches are within walking distance and Gloucester is an easy car ride. We would highly recommend this house and location. Can't wait to go back!

With our vacation nearing the end, we want to thank you for opening your lovely home to us. It is truly a beautiful location and the house is perfectly equipped. One week here isn't nearly enough. We hope to return next summer.

What a place!

This is a fantastic location and impeccable house. The view and deck are spectacular, and the place is very private, very quiet. It is right on the sea, with perhaps 20 feet from the back deck to the ocean. The house has all the amenities, including a newly renovated kitchen that is elegant and functional, with its own outstanding view of the sea. We very much enjoyed our daily bucolic walk to town, mostly on a foot path: 2.6 miles round trip. We rented the house for an entire month (first time we ever did anything so lengthy), and the house and views never got old. The entire family was thrilled. The house sleeps six, and there is a room over the garage that sleeps 4 children; we never used this space. There were no issues whatsoever.

Our first VRBO venture was our two week stay at the Grey Gull in Rockport. We knew the area from previous short excursions and were drawn to the oceanfront location. Our experience in this charming, comfortable home far surpassed our expectations! The rooms are large, full of light and furnished with beautiful antiques. The large central room is very livable and cozy and full of homey comforts like books, a table perfect for playing games or working a jigsaw puzzle. We rarely turned on a TV, although they are in almost every room. The kitchen is state-of-the-art and gorgeous. Both bedrooms have private baths and the sitting room, with its fold-out couch can be closed off with a third bathroom to create another suite. Every room has large windows with spectacular views of the twin Thatcher Island lighthouses. At night we slept with the windows open and were lulled to sleep by the sound of the waves breaking on the rocky shoreline. Each morning, we were awakened by the sunrise. We enjoyed and ample patio and deck, or sitting in the Adirondack chairs with our feet in the grass. The night sky was spectacular - billions of stars and the Milky Way! There are a number of turkeys that wander the neighborhood and we saw a ferret on the rocks. The area is perfect for walking, either along the roadways, the shore, public footpaths or to Rockport center. Tears began to roll down my cheeks as the moment came to say goodbye. Gail.......
As a boy I grew up on the North Shore of Massachuttes and ever since leaving some 50 years ago, each year I would seek out the sounds, and smells of my childhood and the joys and security of living in a small oceanside community.The first day we arrived, when I stepped outside and saw the swells of the Atlantic smashing against the rocks, I new my search was over. After a two day drive, I was weary but could not leave my old friend the ocean. Speaking to me endlessly with every movement toward her high tide. Bidding me to stay and listen. After all it had been 50 years since we had really spent time together.. After a warm day in the sun, the evening greeted us with her cool breeze and the rhythm of the sound of the waves now gentle as the tide rolled back out. It was the last sound I remember that first day and night at Grey Gull. The days and nights repeated themselves for two more weeks. John
