BENJAMIN TARR HOUSE: ROCKPORT VILLAGE HOME JUST 0.4 MILES TO OLD GARDEN BEACH

Rockport House Rental Photos and Description

This 3 bed/two bath historically significant home is just outside of the village of Rockport and a short walk to Old Garden Beach, the Atlantic Path and Headlands which overlook picturesque Rockport Harbor and town.

This 3 bed/two bath historically significant home is just outside of the village of Rockport and a short walk to Old Garden Beach, the Atlantic Path and Headlands which overlook picturesque Rockport Harbor and town (with its multitudes of restaurants, shops and galleries) in one direction and public tennis courts and playground in the other. This is a true Colonial home complete with antique charm as it was built in the mid 1700's by one of Rockport's first settlers, Benjamin Tarr, and it had a role in the Revolutionary War. Much of the original character remains, with period details including wide pine floors, forged iron hardware and exposed beams, while incorporating the contemporary comforts: seating for 6+ in living and dining rooms and sparkling new kitchen. Over the years the house has been lovingly added onto and now consists of 3 distinct units (one conveniently inhabited by the carertaker) each with its own entrance and tandem parking for 2 cars. The first floor consists of the spacious living and dining rooms, fully applianced eat-in kitchen with large center island, full-sized laundry, bath with a shower, and a queen bedroom. Upstairs are two more double bedrooms and a full bath. However, the cottage is scaled to a smaller stature than today's average fellow. The second floor bedrooms are not recommended for guests taller than 6'-0". Low ceilings, uneven floors and irregular stairs enhance the cottage's charm but require careful attention. There is a lovely patio in the back of the home easily accessed through the kitchen, with a gas grill, table and chairs, perfect for al fresco meals or just relaxing. So if you want to experience the best of the old, and new, Rockport, this is the perfect getaway for you!

Suitability:
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed

Reviewer Comments:
The interior and exterior were designed in keeping with the history of te location and of the histroic value of the home. Every detail was thought of. One evening we had ten guests for dinner and we all enjoyed sitting at the dining table together. Living in a quiet neighborhood in Arizona I did have to adjust to the road traffic but it is a small town as well so by bedtime it really didn't matter. Comfortable and very clean we truly felt at home here.

This was my first home rental and what a great experience. The home was very cozy, near town lots to do. Had a wonderful clam back ( lobsters) on the grill.
Everyone in the process of renting was helpful. Would definitely rent this house again. Loved Rockport!

We had a wonderful time. The location was great-a short walk to the beach and downtown. The house was very well equipped and the layout was good. Our 3 boys had their own space upstairs. The house was charming and I have already recommended it to others.
