Overview

Rockport House Rental Photos and Description

2 bedroms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 4+

This family owned cottage has been owned by our family for over 20 years. A few years ago, we decided to take on a full renovation of the house taking the interior down to the studs and to redo everything! **UPDATE** - Exterior of the house was completely painted and new wooden, Dutch door was installed summer of 2013. The result is a beautiful, well laid-out cottage designed for modern living and vacations.

Everything you could need for a week in Rockport and the Cape Ann area is included; washer/dryer, linens, comfortable quilted bedding, TV/Cable, beach chairs and a wide open kitchen/dining/living area making the house extremely comfortable.

The house is centrally located in Rockport, just at the end of Main Street and the great shops and restaurants, which makes it convenient, yet removed from pedestrian traffic of downtown. Front Beach and it's brand new bathhouse is located 100 yards across the street. Bearskin neck is a 5 minute walk as is Back Beach. Pigeon Cove, Lanesville, Long Beach are all a short drive away. This location is impossible to beat!

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • Low Allergen Environment
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets considered
  • suitable for elderly or infirm
  • wheelchair inaccessible

About Joe Roman

Ann and Joe Roman purchased this property with dreams of making it their part-time vacation getaway outside of Boston. As an avid oil painter, my father Joe was drawn to Rockport for the abundance of inspiration in painting his landscapes. He has been affiliated with the Rockport Art Association for much of the 20 years of ownership. Ann is an active community theatre actor and has performed in dozens of shows in the Cape Ann area as well as the new Shalin Liu Center in Rockport.

Joe Roman purchased this house in 1990

Why Joe Roman chose Rockport

When this property came on the market, my parents could not pass it up. They took a gamble on a dream to spend time part-time near the ocean and hope to one day retire full time to Rockport.

The proximity to downtown Rockport, the beaches and all the area has to offer cannot be beat.

What makes this house unique

Front and center to all Rockport has to offer. Open the front door and you will see the world strolling by.

Perfect Location

  • 2 of 5
We rented knowing there was no off street parking and no yard. We managed with parking on the street and were challenged only when we had company. House is located within walking distance to Front Beach and downtown shops. All traffic flows by house and can become quite noisy. House was spacious but lacked a number of amenities like vacuum, cleaning products, and hairdryer usually found in rentals.

House definitely needs professional cleaning.

Owner's Response: Given this is our first official feedback, safe to say this is not indicative of other guests feedback of our house. Our home is fully stocked with cleaning supplies and given that its all hardwood floors, a broom and dust pan is provided rather than a vacuum. Hairdryer can be provided for any guest that asks ahead of time.
We have switched cleaning services since renting last summer as we were also not happy with the quality of cleaning.
Parking is not indicated for our house as it does not exist and we are upfront with all guest about this. Parking can generally be found within 1 block of our house with minimal effort. Rockport is a sleepy, coastal Cape Ann town. Most traffic passing the house is from day trippers passing in daylight hours and is less than 20 mph. Noise from this is very, very minimal.
As this guest points out, location cannot be beat. We are sorry the guest had a less than satisfactory experience and if contacted directly, we would offer a 15% discount off a future rental.

Notes:
Rockport is a place to come relax and unwind and as such, we do not have DSL, wireless or any other sort of internet access. Cell service is strong in Rockport and there is a house phone you are welcome to use. Our family lives very close to this property so we are happy to try and accommodate any special requests. Parking, although not off-street, is very easy to find at this end of Rockport. There is a no parking zone out front that he town is very forgiving about for loading and unloading. House is kept extremely clean and because it's hardwood throughout, we are able to allow pets and also keep the house low allergy.
