Guestbook comments from the owner

This was the best and most beautiful vacation I have been on! I really liked the hammock. The outdoor shower was amazing! I enjoyed seeing where my mom and family grew up. There was plenty of space for everyone. Loved the view, especially seeing the moon rise over Thachers Island.

Amazing house in idyllic location

  • 5 of 5

This house couldn't be better for a large family gathering....I only wish we could have stayed longer! It has everything - large family room, great kitchen, huge porch with amazing views of Thacher's Island, lawn big enough for croquet and bocce. The biggest problem was that everyone was constantly fighting over the hammock on the porch!! Too many amenities to list. Couldn't recommend it more and really look forward to coming back again!!

Magical getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in your home. It’s clean, well kept and comfortable, full of character and warmth. Our fondest memories are sitting in the rockers on the porch looking out at the beautiful ocean view, lying in the hammock after a day at the beach, hearing the seagulls fly over, using the grill in the front yard, watching the spectacular sunrises, and walking out on the rocks to star-gaze at night. The house is quiet, out of the way and peaceful, yet easy to get to - convenient to Rockport, Gloucester, the beach, and surrounding towns. It’s large and roomy enough for family reunions and celebrations, yet spacious enough to allow for plenty of privacy. It could not have been a more perfect spot for our vacation.

Our home (Seacroft) is conveniently located between the town of Rockport and the city of Gloucester, a major fishing community. We are only one mile from the Rockport public schools on both a community and school bus line. Boston is just one hour away by car or train and the train station is located in Rockport, 1 1/2 miles away. This area is not only appealing to vacationers, but to year-round residents as well. Proximity to Boston allows for many cultural, educational, recreational and athletic events, while locally, the beauty of the landscape and the clear ocean air are conducive to healthy living. It offers the best of both worlds with the feel of small town living, convenient to a cosmopolitan area.

Other Activities: Birdwatching, deep-sea fishing, whale watching, surf casting, beach combing, sightseeing, kayaking, live theater.

Golf: The Rockport golf course is a mile from our house.
