Peaceful and magical, full ocean view cottage at Rocky Shores by the sea.

Bedrooms 2
Space 550 sq. ft.
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 2 - 7 nights


About the property

2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, sleeps 4

Situated at the front right corner of the semi-circle of Rocky Shores cottages, Cottage 19 is private and quiet, but close enough to the beaches and downtown Rockport, Massachusetts to let you enjoy the surrounding area from your serene home base.

The cottage's two bedrooms sleep four comfortably. The master bedroom features a queen-size pillow-top bed, while the second bedroom has a 'day bed' with a separate trundle that is used to sleep two separately. The cottage is simply and tastefully decorated, and very clean.

The cottage's bathroom was renovated in 2011 and features a full shower; the kitchen has with a full-size refrigerator, microwave, stove/oven, toaster, Keurig coffee maker, and dining table.

The natural wood floors were refinished in 2013, and the windows were replaced in 2015.

When you're not gazing out at the sea and the Thacher Island Twin Lighthouses from the patio or the living area, you can enjoy the cable HDTV or use the DVD player.

The heart of Rockport is bustling Bearskin Neck, where you can find shops, galleries and restaurants to suit just about every taste and whim. The Shao Lin Performance Center is a new addition to Rockport and features performances by nationally- and internationally-known artists in a beautiful setting.

If you have the urge to visit a more cosmopolitan area, Boston is a one-hour train ride away (the train stops at the depot location less than a half mile from Bearskin Neck).

Most people find that the history and culture of the North Shore offer numerous activities for all ages, but simply sitting outside the cottage and enjoying the view is guaranteed to provide a wonderful opportunity to relax and replenish!

Note: Although we are pet lovers (and owners), we do not allow pets in the cottage.

Rocky Shores-Cottage 19

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to stay - quiet, beautiful, clean, well kept, quaint. The TV is very small - but great reception. Very comfortable beds and wonderful view. Rockport is fabulous-friendly shopkeepers and great selection of goods. Ellen's Harborside restaurant - exceptionally good food at good prices. Top Dog - amazing hot dogs! See the House of Seven Gables in Salem and tour Fenway Park.

Cosy and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to this property for a long time. The current owners have made some nice improvements, including new windows and a walk in shower. Clean and neat, it's a comfortable, albeit cosy, place to stay.

Loved our stay

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at the cottage for a few days with family, we totally enjoyed our stay. It was clean and quite. Only fall back was there was no wifi, which my daughter wasn't thrilled about, but the adults had no issue. Wish it was easier to contact owner so we could book again for next year.

Wonderful and quaint!

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival my immediate thoughts were, "the pictures don't do it justice". The cottage was very cute and cozy. Exactly what we were looking for. I was impressed with how well kept it was. I had also had discussions with the owner before hand. She was very nice and helpful with our stay. She was also easily accessible via email to answer all of my questions right away! The view was phenomenal! It was an easy walk to the cove and around the area. If you are looking for a quiet place to stay that is easy to get in and out of..... I recommend this place!

We had a wonderful stay in the cottage and were thrilled with the amenities. The layout was perfect and the kitchen was stocked with all we needed. The cottage was very clean. The view was spectacular and we enjoyed morning walks along the coast.
