Overview

Rockport House Rental Photos and Description

House, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 1.25 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

This tastefully decorated home is ideal for a Romantic Couple to enjoy spectacular sunsets and beautiful ocean views from every room.

You can have it all, informal beach experience and cultural activities. The best property in Rockport, Seven Knots sits forward of all others on the beach. Get the sense of total privacy and quiet on deck and patio or swim from the semi-private beach. If you crave more action, walk out to the hustle and bustle of Historic Rockport with its public beaches, galleries, shops and restaurants. You are only steps from the Shalin Liu Performance Center which features outstanding music and performers and across the street from the Art Association. Go to the Top Dog for a 'gourmet' hot dog or to My Place By The Sea (among others) for a full gourmet meal and don't forget to stop in at Tuck's for your before bed chocolate treat!

Don't be fooled by the number of bedrooms listed. There are two loft areas upstairs, one with a queen bed, one with a trundle which can be used as a single twin, two twins or a king. Although there are no walls, these areas are more private than you may think for your short-term or weekend guest. Couch in the living room pulls out to queen for additional sleeping.

Love to cook, even on vacation? You won't be frustrated in this kitchen which is well equipped with both equipment and food staples to cook almost anything.

The Rockport train station is within walking distance, unlocking all the activities and attractions of Boston even if you don't have a car. Or, go just one stop to Gloucester to visit a working seaport, or go on a whale watch adventure.

Please note: we have a 7 night minimum stay policy. Also, Check out our monthly and off season discounted rates. Thanks!

What makes this house unique

This is a truly unique property. The house sits farthest forward from its neighbors giving you the feeling that you own the beach exclusively. There is privacy when you need it, crowds and excitement when you don't. The open loft plan makes this a perfect beach house for convening the family.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks again for the rental of 15 Rear Main Street for our week in July. What a beautiful, peaceful place! We had such a lovely time. Both of my kids said over and over that it was perfect for us and made our visit. I have never heard them say that about any other place we have stayed.

Antique converted barn, can't beat the view or the location!

Stayed here just a week ago, at the end of the season. The inside is very unique, in all the right ways. Looking up to the ceiling, there is nothing but native timber, very distinctive. The upstairs is a U-shaped loft area via a partial spiral stairway. Looking out the front of the house from the loft, it is wall to wall windows and two large patio doors. The view is just as amazing from the inside of the house as outside. It's hard to tell from the pictures, but the deck runs the full length of the house in front, and wraps around to a large deck area on the side with table seating for six or more. Plenty of space on the front deck and a two person glider as well. The side deck is adjacent to nice bricked patio and garden area. There is also a patio door access from the kitchen to the side of the deck. There are stairs off the deck that lead down to the rocky shore below, when the tide is changing the sounds are amazing including lots of seagulls (which you will also hear on the roof as well). At low tide there is a small sandy beach below and to the right, and a large public beach is a very short walk down the street. The house sits farther out that your neighbors on either side, so you have privacy and a view. To the right you can see the old harbor, to the left the beach, and all to the front the wrapping coastline of the bay. The house faces the northeast which while I was there the decks has both sun and shade times.
There are a row of houses/shops right behind which is the main street. Equidistant in the other direction from the beach is Bearskin neck full of eateries, shoppes, galleries, etc. If you want to avoid driving, the train station is only a couple blocks away and runs to Gloucester, Salem and Boston, the trains run from early in the morning til late at night. Great food everywhere I went, but plan ahead, even at the end of the season places fill up fast. Some places seat 20 or fewer people which adds to the charm but would be tough for large parties and at peak season.
Kitchen is well stocked with both large and small appliances and a charcoal grill on the side deck, linens and towels ready to go. Washer and dryer in upstairs bathroom are a great touch. Plenty of parking space and plenty of Rockport is within walking distance from the house. Small convenience store in Rockport, but a full size supermarket and shopping is just up the road in Gloucester in minutes.
Great place to stay in and go out!

AMAZING Place to Stay!!!

  • 5 of 5
I just returned home today after a perfect week staying in this rental. It's hard to explain what a great place this is. The view was unbelievable!! I spent as much time as possible on the deck watching the water. The location is ideal... steps away from everything. I will absolutely stay here again!!

Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5
What a dream! Family members 55+ under one roof for a week! No problem! There was plenty of space, a lot of directions, easy and available support as needed. The home is so accessible to Rockport sites while at the same time off the beaten track. If you like ocean viewing, this is the place to be! Very close to Shalin Performance Center which just had a fantastic write up in the Boston Globe. ENJOY! PS Rockport Commuter rail, within walking distance, gave us access to downtown Boston!

Winter guests from Florida - snowbirds in reverse

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful experience my husband and I had at the lovely “Seven Knots” in Rockport. Our stay was an extended one over the winter months and Rockport was just coming to life for the summer when our time unfortunately came to an end. This unique home was perfect for us – enough space for the two of us with room to expand when our adult daughters or friends came for weekend visits. The setting was idyllic – a spectacular view, cozy living space with wonderfully comfortable beds, fully-equipped kitchen and best of all, peacefully quiet. Parking was easy and we were just steps from the quaint shops and activities of Rockport. I can imagine that Seven Knots will be a perfect retreat from a much busier community during the summer months. Until the end of our stay it was too cool to really enjoy the wrap-around deck, but our last week was glorious and we took every advantage overlooking Front Beach, the lobster boat activity and the wildlife. Trips to Boston by train were easy, the Rockport community was friendly and we would definitely go back to this particular rental any chance we could. The owner was wonderful to work with and we would highly recommend this beautiful home as a vacation destination.

Great View, Great Town, Good Vacation

  • 4 of 5
This property worked well for our recent vacation to the Boston area. We wanted space, a view and a charming experience overall and certainly got it here. The location is ideal and the vacation home is well appointed. It was good value for our money. Thanks for the memories.
