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.

Wonderful Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable time at the cottage. Sitting outside on a warm October night is great enough but the view of twin lights was amazing as well as the extra surprise of watching a cruise ship come by. The cottage has everything we needed for a great weekend. We walked to the beach and hiked around the beautiful area. The towns of Rockport and Gloucester were great to explore. Would love to go back and explore some more. We also were about 20 miles from Salem where we spent a great day but were happy to get back to our peaceful cottage.

The place is à bit small for 4 adults. There is not enough room to put all our things for a whole week. The beds were really confortable and clean.

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.
