A RETIREMENT HONEYMOON

  • 5 of 5
The property is billed at unique...and it definitely is. The inside layout of the apartment was a bit rustic (as it should be!) and will not be for everyone but it was great for the two of us. We are from the western US and being able to spend two weeks in Rockport, MA...looking out every morning on this little - idyllic - lobster fishing harbor from the second and third floors...IT WAS FABULOUS!

The photos included in the listing represent the property very well. No surprises. We liked that a lot. But...the photos only partially prepared us for the full visual and emotional impact of this place on us once we settled in. I feel sorry for those who can only stay here a day or two. And they will all wish they could stay longer! I think we would have stayed all summer it we could have.

We found the property centrally located for all we wanted to do in this region. Lots of interesting shops, safe streets of walking, hiking nearby, tasty restaurants, close access to the rail system into Boston...and lots of fun and nearby places to explore - Essex, Gloucester, Salem, Newburyport...and points in between.

This is a definite winner!

JOE'S PLACE WAS A PERFECT NEW ENGLAND EXPERIENCE.

Joe's Place was a perfect New England experience.
  • 4 of 5
Staying right in the middle of Bearskin Neck Road was an amazing way to experience Rockport's charm and history. We could walk to art galleries, shops, restaurants and bakeries all while enjoying the beautiful scenic wharfs and beaches that have such a storied history in America's fishing and boating industry.

The property was clean and well kept while maintaining a sense of the rugged seaport charm. The condo was adequately stocked which added to its homey feel.

The high-quality of the shops, galleries and restaurants are attractions enough, but when you add the wharfs, bays, beaches, kayaking and sunbathing to the equation you get a special vacation opportunity. A 15 minute drive to Halibut State Park revealed a beautiful surprise. The stone quarry lake and the walking paths above, and down to the rocky ocean are spectacular.

Even my hard-to-please teenage boys enjoyed the whole experience.

Both me and my wife hope to get back to Rockport and Joe's Place someday in the future.

My sister had a great time in Rockport! This condo was perfect: roomy, great view, centrally located, all the necessities available and quiet at night. We both plan on going back with our families.

GREAT SPOT!

  • 5 of 5
Joe's place is a great spot to explore all of Cape Ann from - very spacious. Right in Bearskin Neck - I was a bit concerned about what the noise level would be like in the middle of summer for sleeping - the weekend was a little noisy but it was fine during the week. 5 min walk to nice beach. Parking spot was perfect - no need to carry your beach chairs to and from the condo - just leave them in the trunk of your car as parking spot is right across the street from the beach. If you want big waves go to Good Harbor Beach - beautiful beach, expensive parking but go early before the crowds. Condo space was great - our 6yr old slept upstairs with us on the big comfy chair/foot stool. A/C unit downstairs was working but exhaust hose was not connected - so of no use to us as it only put more hot air into the condo. Would have been nice to have our last 2 very hot, humid days. There are fans that helped but the upstairs was quite warm for sleeping the last 2 nights with the heat. The rest of the week there were beautiful cool breezes blowing through. Better lighting downstairs would be nice - dining table light is much too dark. A few kitchen things missing - a strainer for pasta and some pot-holders or oven mits would have been nice. Otherwise everything you need is there. Condo was cleaned nicely before our arrival. Went for a walk at Halibut Point state park - very nice area to go for a walk around a quarry and along the ocean rocks - 10 min drive. I would definitely feel comfortable recommending this place to friends.

WONDERFUL PLACE!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed here last year for a romantic getaway for our anniversary and we were absolutely blown away. First of all you cannot get better than this location - you are literally downtown in the midst of all of the shops and sites - the big window in the kitchen overlooked the bearskin neck shops and then off the back of the bedroom upstairs you have a deck with the view of motif #1 - what more could you ask for? The best part was the surprise because when we arrived and parked in the back we felt like, 'this looks okay' but then you walk in and the floor plan is so cool - especially when you go upstairs to see this beautiful high ceilinged bedroom - huge with the deck off the back and the view of the water and then on the other side a seating area and massive window. I would say that this place is ideal for a couples getaway. We did have my parents stay one night and we took the futon which was okay but wouldn't have been in my opinion for the whole week. This is just the perfect romantic getaway spot! Highly recommend!

IN THE HEART OF IT ALL

  • 4 of 5
Joe's Place is a great place on Bearskin Neck. With Motif #1 out one window, and amazing sunsets over the ocean out of the other, you find little to complain about. The best part about the location is that the unit sits above the hustle and bustle of the Bearskin Neck tourists so you can still relax. Walking downstairs to enjoy all the restaurants and shops is also such a convenience. While the reserved parking is a 5-10 minute walk away, it is worth it to not have to deal with parking and the congestion of downtown Rockport.

I recommend this place to anyone who wants to see Rockport at its best. During the summer you get both sides of the coin (relaxation with the downtown fun) and I can only imagine the quiet relaxation that this pace would hold in the off season.
