A LITTLE CHARMER - JUST A SHORT WALK FROM BEACH AND TOWN

Rockport Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Rockport has many things to do and we are within walking distance of all of them. You can walk to town or to the beach in 5 minutes. Or you can sit on the patio and enjoy quiet activities. The location is very private and feels like your home away from home.

We just converted from a year-round rental, so all furniture is new and comfortable. If you stay in you have a new flat-screen TV and DVD player or you can readily get on the Internet.

In addition to the lovely little private beach at the end of the lane, you can walk to town where you can visit art galleries, cute shops, and delightful restaurants. If you have a bike, you can store it in the shed and ride all around Rockport, or Cape Ann, if you are really ambitious. Everywhere you go in Rockport you have lovely views of the water. And we can point you to the Headlands, Old Garden Path, and other areas that only the locals know about.

If you want city life, the train is also within walking distance, which means you can take the train to Boston or Salem. And you can get to us without a car, if that is a consideration.

I am a technical writer and still working full time. But I am fortunate enough to be able to work from home at will ... which I do in the summer, so I can enjoy Rockport myself. I have a small unit next door and will be looking for opportunities to make your visit as special and comfortable as possible.

Ellen Lidington purchased this apartment in 1995

We bought the house 15 years ago because we love the coast and sailing. I grew up on the south shore of Long Island and have always been drawn to the water. I find it very therapeutic and relaxing to be in Rockport. This unit is especially sweet and charming. It is an part of a post and beam barn.

A WEEK TO REMEMBER

  • 5 of 5
Our family had a great time during this week and this house was the main reason. we could walk to the beach or town with ease and enjoyed a wonderful walk in the morning and evening to the shops or just around this beautiful town. The house was great for having family meals using the grill or small kitchen and we enjoyed movie or game nights to close off each day. I would rent this place again and again and so should you.

GREAT VALUE.

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed here for 2 months during the summer of 2010. It fit our needs perfectly. My husband was able to commute in to Boston a few times a week (45 min) and I spent nearly every day sitting at the beach, which felt like a private beach!
There is plenty to eat withing walking distance (quaint coffee/donut shop, lobster shack, fine dining, etc). And the art galleries offer classes during summer months!
This location and the owner made everything perfect for our summer.

LOVELY LITTLE GETAWAY

  • 4 of 5
My husband and I truly enjoyed our time at this rental. It was close to everything Rockport had to offer and we walked everywhere. It was clean and cozy and the queen size bed was very, very comfortable. There was a bit of a steep climb to the second floor bedroom, but we got used to it right away and it wasn't a problem at all. The owner was very easy to work with and she made sure we had everything we needed. For a real New England Coastal experience we recommend the Lobster Pool on the outskirts of Rockport - a real "Lobster Shack". We ate dinner outside at a picnic table while we watched the sun set one night. They had a bonfire and guitars available for patrons to pick up and play if they wanted. It was just great. We hope to return to Rockport soon, and hope to stay here again! It is just right for two and has a great location with a beach at the end of the street.
