I rent summer properties frequently as well as am accustomed to staying at finer hotels internationally. This is a unique property located in the center of all things Rockport and is now among my favorite travel experiences. Front Beach is across the street as is the new performing arts center with an impressive performance lineup. Main Street is full of galleries, shops, restaurants and harbor access. The property itself is charming, comfortable and updated. It is safely tucked in a garden behind the owner's gallery and is a sanctuary amidst the bustling downtown Rockport area. Finally, the host, Renata, could not have been more accommodating. She was always offering insights as to the best area attractions.....lobster shacks, whale watching, Hammond Castle, Gloucester shopping, sailing, etc. I look forward to returning.
Other Activities: Private art lessons: Oil, Acrylic, Watercolor, Illustration.
