The Little Red House, Rockport
We stayed at the,"Little Red House" in September, 2011. The house is a historical gem. I felt privileged to stay in a house that is such a real piece of history in the Cape Ann area.
The house is small and feels wonderfully cozy. Although an old building, the house has all the conveniences one needs - a nice bathroom (although you have to go through the second bedroom to get to it) with claw-footed tub, a (quite) small kitchen, a nice dining room and a good-sized sitting room from which you can see the beach.
The furnishings are not "ritzy" but they fit the house very well. Nothing looked out of place. In keeping with this, if one is looking for a "polished" rental, this is not for you, but if you are looking for cozy, warm, and comfortable, this is a great place.
I liked that the house is surrounded by a fence; I could let my dog outside without worrying about her. As well as being very centrally located, the house is also next door to a town park which was a nice place to take my dog and to walk in the early a.m.
Judy, who tends to the property for the owner, was extremely helpful and very accommodating. When I had to stay an extra night, she could not have been nicer or more helpful.
One day the owner, Clif, came by to mow the lawn, and he was very nice - he brought along a pie and some lovely freshly baked bread. I got the sense that he truly loves his, "Little Red House".
