Rockport Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths (Sleeps 4-6)

Located at the mouth of Bearskin Neck this incredible 2 bedroom condo is 20 ft to Rockport Harbor. You can sit in the living room, or your deck and watch the comings and goings of Rockport Harbor, and the famous Motif #1. Walk through the nicely renovated 2 bedroom condo, and you can view all the activity of Bearskin Neck from your bedroom window. Totally in-town location, yet unsurpassed views of the Harbor. Only a 2 minute walk to the beautiful newly constructed Shalin Liu Performance Center! Only a 5 minute walk to Front Beach, a family friendly beach and swimming area.

The condo itself is spacious and has a fully appliance kitchen. Decorated with style you can come home from a day of shopping, site-seeing, or sailing to a cozy and oh-so picturesque spot. This place is Quintessential Bearskin Neck... You will enjoy it!

Please visit the webcam at bluefishpropertycam(dot)blogspot(dot)com - you get the same view as the camera!

New for 2013, we've installed new picture windows in the living room for even cleaner views of the harbor. Additionally, we've upgraded our air conditioning system to a new Mitsubishi heat pump system that will quietly keep you very comfortable on hot days.

Interested in a smaller unit in the same building? Check out Joe's Place, VRBO 347558 / Homeaway 388735. Same great location and views in a large, eclectic 1 bedroom loft.

About Owner

Marcella Partners bought this home in 2009 as it was in an area our Grandmother truly enjoyed. She always enjoyed Bearskin Neck, and we think she might have even been inside the building (in the past it was a boat house, and a bowling alley). It was purchased as an investment property, but we have enjoyed staying many weekends in the home as we renovated it.

Owner purchased this condo in 2009

Why Owner chose Rockport

Views, views, views... nothing like looking out to Rockport Harbor with a nice cup of coffee in the morning.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We relaxed, toasted our anniversary, stared out the windows, walked the village. Enjoyed the boats, snow, sun & wind. Birds, coziness and happiness. Our joy also renewed love for Rockport.

Right in the middle of everything - with views!

"Marcella By The Sea" is a very comfortable two bedroom unit with a separate kitchen, dining area, living room, and 1 1/2 bathrooms.

In 25+ years of vacations in Rockport, relatively little (by comparison to other shore communities) has changed - which is a very good thing! "Marcella By the Sea" provides a link to the history of Rockport as well as a very nice place to stay.

The living room and kitchen areas have a direct "up close and personal" view of the harbor. I found myself just looking out the window for hours at a time.

The owner/management group was very quick to respond to a cable/Internet outage and were also on hand to shovel the deck and steps after a nor'easter came in that dropped 20" of snow in the area. They were very responsive before and during our stay.

The bedroom side of the unit is directly on the main road of Bearskin Neck. I was able to watch the New Year's Eve parade without having to go out in the cold! In the summer the downside to the bedrooms would be street noise, but the living room/dining/kitchen areas facing the harbor should be quiet, as the parking area on that side is for residents only.

The unit is in easy walking distance of local restaurants. In the winter time that means the Red Skiff and Rockport House of Pizza, so there's always something available if you don't want to cook. The kitchen is well stocked and the range and refrigerator are full size, so cooking a real meal if you don't want to go out is easily managed. I particularly appreciated finding a can of coffee in one of the cabinets -although a coffee shop is just steps away on Bearskin Neck.

Marcella By the Sea is a comfortable and convenient option for your next trip to Rockport!

We couldn't have asked for a better place to house our family of 6 while visiting our college daughter on the North Shore. This eclectic little seaside condo was charming, comfortable, and in the absolute best location in Rockport. The owner was extremely accommodating with our early morning flight arrival and easy to reach by phone during our stay. Although many of the local businesses along Bearskin Neck were already closed for the season, we still managed to partake in some great lobster rolls and chowder at Roy Moore's, grabbed some warm streusel for breakfast from Helmut's and a late night pizza from Rockport House of Pizza. And did I mention the view??? We truly hated to leave, and hope for another opportunity to come stay again.

Marcella Weekend

  • 5 of 5
Marcella was exactly as portrayed in photos except the view was even more spectacular than portrayed. Kitchen was beautiful, well equipped, beds were comfortable and the living and deck areas relaxing and lovely. The only slight negative were the stairs leading up to the deck: steep and narrow for larger folks with bags in their arms.
Rockport is very walkable, great shopping and views. A short drive to Gloucester to the Seaport Grille for a meal was a great suggestion of a Bearskin Neck shopkeeper.
All agreed we will try to return as often as possible. Great value!
Sincere thanks for making it so easy and fun. Laura DiMambro etal

The Perfect Getaway Spot in Rockport, MA

  • 5 of 5
What a great find! This condo is clean, comfortable and right by the water with a great view of Motif #1! I treated myself to a week in Rockport for my birthday and my sister, her pup and I had a blast! Not only does Rockport have loads of charm, Gloucester the best foods and all the many small surrounding towns to explore ... the topper was the comfy condo to come back to. I cannot wait to come back and stay again! The table on the deck was a bonus to sit and drink wine or coffee and watch the fishermen come and go. I'm so happy we stayed here!

Wonderful time in Rockport

  • 5 of 5
What a great spot! The condo was very clean and welcoming-seemed like "home" from the minute we arrived. Location was convenient to shops/food and all the great photo opportunities! The deck looking over the harbor was a great asset-just beautiful! We found a lot of good food, but none better than at Roy Moore's Lobster Company just a couple doors down from the condo. We went there every day for some combo of oysters/chowder/stuffed clams or lobster (enter thru the back door and bring back to deck to eat it.) You can't beat their prices or their friendly service. By the 3rd day, they had our appetizers waiting for us! Red Skiff is great for breakfast or the strudel place down the neck...
Parking was not an issue-easy walk and across from Front Beach-just leave the beach stuff in the car. Be sure to visit Halibut Point-not a long drive and one of my favorite places in New England to just "chill out" and enjoy the view.
I highly recommend this condo to anyone-just don't book the weeks I want to go back!
