SEA GLASS HOUSE: TRANQUIL SEASIDE RETREAT OR BASE FOR ADVENTURE

Rockport Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1 full bathroom, sleeps up to 7

Large first floor apartment in lovely Greek Revival home on quiet sidestreet in Rockport village. Quick stroll to Shalin Liu Performing Arts Center for world-class music with splendid Sandy Bay as backdrop; historic Main Street with its many colorful art galleries; pristine beaches with the clearest, cleanest water in New England; sea kayak rental to tour the magnificent Cape Ann coast; or rugged single track mountain bike trails in ancient Dogtown forest. 65 minute train ride to historic Boston. Features two large, sunny bedrooms, large eat-in kitchen, full bathroom, large living room, hardwood floors and high ceilings throughout, washer/dryer in unit. Shared use of large backyard and gardens, front and rear porches. One parking space in driveway, other parking available on street.

Wake up and take your coffee on the porch, stroll out the door to drop a postcard at the post office, walk another block to Front Beach to watch terns and plovers wheel overhead as the sun rises over Sandy Bay and you gather colorful bits of 200-year old sea glass and crockery. Later, amble along Main Street to the shops and restaurants of Dock Square and Bearskin Neck and watch the lobster boats depart from Tuna Wharf for the catch you will eat later that night. If you want more vigorous activity, rent a kayak and paddle out to Thatcher Island to visit the Twin Lights, one of the few double lighthouses still in operation and a national landmark; or go hiking along the massive granite outcroppings at Halibut Point State Park, where the sea spray and breeze freshen even the hottest summer day.

If its action you want, your hosts can lead you into hundreds of acres of extreme single track mountain biking trails in Dogtown, the vast and rocky woodlands that contain the remnants of the original settlement of Gloucester from the early 1600s; point you to the best spots for surfing the waves off Long Beach in Rockport or Good Harbor Beach in Gloucester, or to the rocky bays and coves along the coastline that are renowned among scuba divers in New England for their clarity and accessibility. There is even a tidal rip at nearby Goose Cove for surfing or playboating for whitewater paddlers.

Excellent holiday home!

  • 4 of 5
We had an excellent stay in this house. It is spacious, well-maintained and we felt very much welcome there. Being a family of four, with two teenagers, this house offered everybody a great holiday: it is located on walking distance form the town centre of Rockport, and its beaches. By car, it's an easy drive to Boston and other towns and cities in the area, while the location itself is quiet and easy-going, and last but not least , equipped with Wifi. It really offers value for money, and we can recommend this house to everybody
