Overview

Rockport Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Dining Area, Full Kitchen, Harbor Deck (Sleeps 4)

This custom-furnished, luxury apartment provides all the amenities that one may need to enjoy time at Rockport's most popular destination, Bearskin Neck.

The Mariner, located at 35 Bearskin Neck, offers: two bedrooms - the Bearskin Neck-side bedroom has a queen-sized bed and the Harbor-side bedroom has a king-sized bed; a full bath; a kitchen fully-stocked with everything one may need to prepare and enjoy meals; a dining area; a living room with flat-screen, cable TV; and deck with table and seating overlooking Rockport Harbor.

Art galleries, shoppes, and eateries are steps outside the front entrance, and Bradley Wharf, Rockport Harbor, and Motif #1 greet you at the rear entrance.

Lobsters are unloaded daily on Bradley Wharf, prepared next door at the Roy Moore Lobster Company, and enjoyed by many on their back deck 'in the rough'.

Parking is notoriously difficult on Bearskin Neck. However, we have a reserved parking spot across from Front Beach, an approximate 10 minute, pleasant walk along Main Street. We recommend dropping off luggage at the Bradley Wharf entrance to the apartment upon arrival, parking in the reserved spot, and walking back to the apartment.

About Justin Mierz

Justin grew up in Rockport and graduated in 1992 from Rockport High School before heading to East Carolina University in Greenville, North Carolina. 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 software engineering manager at NASDAQ in Boston. Justin and Marcie live with their two girls - Ava Mae (6 years old) and Sadie (3 years old) - at 40 Atlantic Avenue in Rockport.

Justin Mierz purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Justin Mierz chose Rockport

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.

What makes this apartment unique

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.

Amazing Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have traveled to the Cape Anne area for several summers, and this was, by far, the best experience we had. The location is ideal: walking distance to three beaches, many restaurants, and many shops. We stayed for 2 and a half weeks, and the Mariner was spacious enough for us to all have our own space and enjoy every minute of our vacation. The kitchen is well stocked, so we cooked many meals with ease there. Air conditioning was a huge plus, but the outdoor patio, screen doors, and many windows allowed us to feel the fresh breeze blowing throughout. Bearskin Neck is so safe feeling that we often sent our boys (10 and 12) out alone in the morning for walks to pick up breakfast. The freedom they felt there was such a gift, and the comfort we all felt there was wonderful. Another plus is the Rockport Train station. We took a few trips into Boston, only an hour away. Rockport is an ideal location, close to many other wonderful points of interest: Gloucester, Essex, Newburyport, etc. Justin was a wonderful host. He and his family have created a warm, cozy space, and he was available to help in every way. He even took our family out in his boat to see the seals. We plan to go back to Rockport and wouldn't think about staying anywhere else!

The best of Rockport, outside your door!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a wonderful stay at the Mariner. The apartment actually lives larger than what the photos depict. It was beautiful, spotless and finished with tasteful and comfortable selections. So glad we found this gem in the midst of all that makes this harbor town so special.

From our window, we watched the fisherman set out from the harbor in the early morning. In mid-afternoon we were able to sit on the deck and watch their return with crates full of lobster. We couldn't get over how great it was to step out the front door and be surrounded by shops, restaurants, and artists' studios.

We have visited Rockport in the past and were happy to return to some old favorites- the Red Skiff for grilled muffins:), The Paper Mermaid, Toad Hall Books, Milk & Honey, and Tucks. New delights are the artist Bruce Johnson, just across the street, Sea Star at 38 Bearskin Neck, and gorgeous art by the owner' s brother at his studio down the way. (We were able to watch him while he was finishing up a painting)

Thanks so much for a great stay, Justin! We will definitely recommend your place to family and friends.

Spectacular Stay!

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful experience all around. The Mariner is nestled in the heart of Bearskin Neck, providing immediate access to all the activities and sights that Rockport is known for, as well as the opportunity for a quick retreat in a few short steps for some quiet relaxation. The Mariner provides a nice mix of simple, uncluttered and tasteful appointments that would serve well for those looking for a special getaway or just a simple place to lay their heads. As a testament to just how special our stay was, two members of our party, who have been visiting and staying in Rockport for over 50 years, said the Mariner provided them with experiences and views of Rockport never had before. The owner, Justin, is very personable and down-to-earth. He was very attentive, yet not intrusive, and keeps the premises spotless. I hesitate to say more at the risk of others discovering the Mariner and limiting the opportunities for us to return.
