PANORAMIC HARBOR VIEW, AUTHENTIC ROCKPORT EXPERIENCE

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 most often painted building in America. 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 Mierz purchased this apartment in 2013

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.

NEW ENGLAND COASTAL CHARM

  • 5 of 5
Take advantage of this completely renovated, coastal Massachusetts gem. Comfortable beds, high end appointments and a bedside view of one of the most painted and photographed harbors in America [It’s even prettier than in the Howeaway photos].
Amble out onto Rockport's famous Bearskin Neck amid its shops, galleries and restaurants. And when you’re ready to unwind, slip through an unimposing door and up a flight of stairs to your 2-bedroom hideaway. [The description in the listing is accurate, you do have to walk a bit to your car, but it’s a lovely walk, and you wanted the exercise anyway, right?]
You are in the midst of a thriving coastal village, mere steps away from beautiful beaches and the notable Shalin Liu Performance Center. The dock below your windows is busy with fishermen and lobstermen, so it is not a "serene" place, but it is pleasant, entertaining and authentic. You'll feel like a local as soon as you arrive.
Shop, sketch, paint, take pictures -- you'll fit right in!
It's not hard to imagine what Rockport was like 100, 200, even 300 years ago. Colonial America is just outside your door. Storied Salem and the House of the Seven Gables is an easy 30-minute drive away. And you'll be singing the Gorton's Fisherman jingle as you take pictures next to the famous Sailor's monument in nearby Gloucester, Ma.
Need ideas of things to do? Your amiable host, Justin, is ready with suggestions. We found The Mariner by accident; a happy accident we’ll remember fondly for a long time.
