Overview

Rockport House Rental Photos and Description

Rockport! Enjoy the best of all worlds in this recently renovated 4 bedroom home overlooking Rockport's stunningly picturesque Flat Ledge quarry as well as vista views of Sandy Bay beyond. Includes swimming rights to Little Parker quarry! Walk to town!

Enjoy the best of all worlds in this spacious and bright, recently renovated home that overlooks Rockport's stunningly picturesque Flat Ledge Quarry as well as vista views of Sandy Bay. If all this water makes you want to swim, you're in luck, because not only can you walk to the Beach in a few minutes, the property includes swimming rights to the very private Little Parker Quarry – a sparkling and pristine fresh water quarry a stone's throw from the house. Cheerful, tastefully decorated and family friendly, the house includes four bedrooms, two full baths and many distinct living areas. A large formal dining room with wonderful views, a roomy and bright fully-equipped kitchen with laundry, and a den with a relaxing reading nook and sliders to a wood deck overlooking the yard, are on the same level of the house as the four comfortable bedrooms. Additional living space is available in the spacious upper living room with lots of comfortable seating and large windows to enjoy the view. There is a playroom is on the lowest level which includes plenty of seating from which to watch the large, wall-mounted flat-screen TV/DVD and play the many available board games/jigsaw puzzles. Also in the playroom are two sleeper chairs for additional sleeping capacity.

The whole interior of the home has been thoughtfully renovated including fresh paint, new carpeting, refinished hardwood floors, and two updated and lovely baths with granite vanities. Upscale linens and towels (including beach towels) complement this warm and welcoming home. The kitchen is a thoroughly equipped cook's kitchen with a gas stove including dishware/flatware for fourteen and pass-through access to the large, open and sunny dining room. The dining table was made from a section of reclaimed bowling lane that provides spacious and beautiful dining - sized to fit all of your family and friends. At the back of the house, out the dining room slider, is a serene and peaceful slate dining patio with stunning views of the expansive and flat verdant lawn. The back patio is the perfect antidote for a busy lifestyle - a quiet and tranquil spot from which to enjoy your morning coffee and paper with sweeping, unrestricted views. The patio includes a gas grille and outdoor dining for 10. The very private back yard has direct access to hiking paths and leads to the edge of the Flat Ledge Quarry (very small children must be monitored). Or choose to sit on the front deck which overlooks the large front yard and vista views of Sandy Bay. There is also plenty of parking for you and your guests.

Swim in Little Parker Quarry steps from your front door or walk to the village of Rockport and Front and Back Beaches making this home just the right place for you and yours. Enjoy walks directly from the backyard on your choice of a myriad of wooded trails exploring old quarries and nature at its best. Enjoy fresh seafood, world-class music at the Rockport Shalin Liu Performance Center, gorgeous walks along the ocean or wooded paths, lovely beaches, art galleries, Bearskin Neck shopping, Kayak and rentals, and many restaurants – all a short walk from the house! Swim at the beach in the morning, the quarry in the afternoon, followed by a perfect dinner and a music concert in downtown Rockport! The house is truly peaceful and tranquil - giving you the option of simply relaxing or going out and enjoying the many wonderful local activities. An amazing location for your next vacation – great for families and friends!

AVAILABLE AS A WINTER RENTAL. Everything in the house remains the same except in the off season there are 3 bedrooms (as opposed to four in the summer).

Reviewer Comments:

We had a pleasant stay for the most part. The house was very clean and the neighborhood nice and quiet. Loved the views of the big quarry out back, the walking trails, and swimming in the little quarry. Kitchen was very suitable and comfortable to use. Bedrooms a little close for comfort but no real problems there.

Drawbacks: downstairs basement room is not the right place for the television. It should be upstairs. There is a bush on the front deck which badly needs trimming, it interferes with the chairs. Contrary to what the ads.say, there is not an ocean view, except perhaps from the upper porch which is off limits to tenants. Air conditioner didn't work but that wasn't a problem

AVH staff was very helpful in telling us how to get into the house using the lock box.

Thank you for a pleasant stay

Reviewer Comments:

Rockport has been a vacation destination for many years and as our family grew we realized we needed a larger house. We were so happy and excited to find the Quarry Crest House, nestled in a lovely neighborhood within walking distance to the town beach and center of town. The house has many living spaces for those times one needs to read or nap in quiet. We spent many hours lolling in the beautiful quarry a stones throw from the house. We can't wait to return next year!

Manager responded on 8/5/2014:

Thank you for the charming review, Eileen! We're always delighted to hear about families enjoying the relaxing nature of Quarry Crest House and the lively attractions of Rockport so nearby. We thank you for choosing Atlantic Vacation Homes and we will certainly see you next year. Have a wonderful rest of the summer!

Reviewer Comments:

My family and friends were very pleased with our experience at Quarry Crest House. It was exactly what we needed in the several days leading up to my daughter's wedding in S. Hamilton. The location was perfect! We were walking distance from the dock, beach and quaint town of Rockport. The quarries were both great. The one in the backyard was very beautiful and the flat quarry down the street was perfect for our kids and friends to swim. I would recommend this home for anyone looking for a great vacation spot.

Manager responded on 7/12/2014:

Swimming in the quarries is a staple of Cape Ann, and an amazingly enjoyable experience! We're happy that you, your family & friends all had such a great time at Quarry Crest House! We hope you decide to return to Cape Ann soon. PS: Congratulations to your daughter and her new spouse!!!

Reviewer Comments:

We rented this house Labor Day Weekend for a small reunion of college friends. I can't say enough good things about it! It's a very nice house, and we found it in impeccable condition--more like a nice hotel than a rental (new soaps, piles of plush towels). The location is excellent: walking distance to town and steps from dramatic views and a lovely swimming quarry. One caveat: there's no barrier between the back yard and the huge drop-off to Flat Ledge Quarry; I'd be uneasy staying there with small children.
