Rockport Apartment Rental Photos and Description
2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Dining Area, Full Kitchen, Harbor Deck (Sleeps 4)
The Mariner provides guests a genuinely unique Rockport visit. Galleries, shops, and eateries on Bearskin Neck are steps outside the front entrance. The back side of the 2nd floor apartment looks out to Rockport Harbor and a spiral staircase brings one to Bradley Wharf, home of Motif #1 – the iconic red shack and centerpiece of Rockport Harbor. Awake to sunrise over Motif from the master bedroom and enjoy its allure at all times of the day from the Mariner deck. Working lobstermen shacks greet you at the back door. Watch the catch of the day unloaded at the wharf below and served next door at the Roy Moore Lobster Company.
The Mariner is a place to come to relax, take in beautiful sites, and have fun on a working wharf in Rockport. By no means will this be a place for solitude and silence – there is so much happening around the Mariner – and that’s what makes a stay at the Mariner so enjoyable and exciting!
This custom-furnished, luxury apartment provides all the amenities and comfort one may need to enjoy time in Rockport's most popular destination, Bearskin Neck. The Mariner offers two bedrooms - a queen-sized bed in the Bearskin Neck side bedroom and a king-sized bed in the harbor side bedroom; a full bath; and a kitchen fully stocked with everything one may need to prepare and enjoy meals. Other amenities include central air conditioning, dishwasher, wireless internet, high definition television, coffee maker, iron/board, and toaster.
Parking is notoriously difficult on Bearskin Neck and driving on the Neck is challenging given the heavy foot traffic. However, we have a reserved parking spot for the Mariner across from Front Beach, a short walk away, about a quarter mile -- drop off luggage, family members, and other items at the apartment on Bradley Wharf, park the car, and walk back to the Neck.

Justin returned home after graduation, received a Master of Public Health from the University of Massachusetts, and met his wife, Marcie, in the North End in Boston. Justin spent 13 years as an Environmental Analyst for the Environmental Epidemiology Program at the Massachusetts Department of Public Health before resigning in 2013 to operate vacation rentals in Rockport. Marcie is a Quality Assurance Manager for web hosting application development at NASDAQ in Boston. Justin and Marcie live with their two girls - Ava Mae (5 years old) and Sadie (2 years old) - at 40 Atlantic Avenue.
This property has been in the family for generations. For many years, Justin's grandmother operated the Lobster in the Rough restaurant before the space was renovated in 2012 by Justin's mother and step-father.
The location of the Mariner is unparalleled. Guests enjoy a panoramic view of Rockport Harbor from nearly every room. Motif #1 is a stone's throw away from the Mariner deck. Restaurants, shops, and galleries are steps away.
