This peaceful location on a quiet lane just outside of Rockport's downtown offers an easy place from which to enjoy the best that this world-renowned sea-side art colony has to offer. Beaches, shops, art galleries, restaurants, and Rockport Harbor are all just a five-minute walk from your door.
A five minute walk takes you directly into the heart of Rockport's downtown, full of art galleries, quaint shops, restaurants, and home of the Rockport Chamber Music Festival and Rockport Art Association. Boat tours leave regularly from two wharves, and you can rent sea kayaks, go deep sea-fishing, or climb the rocks at the end of Bearskin Neck and watch the sun set over the harbor and the famous Motif #1 fishing shack.
The same short walk brings you to Front Beach, with its fine swimming and scenic views of Rockport's coastline for adults, and gradual slope and tidepools that delight children. Along the way you will pass the lane leading to Millbrook Meadow, an oasis-like park with a pond, waterfall, babbling brook, and large lawn with swings and slide.
This was a great home to stay in for our family of 7 (we brought five kids 5-15.) Only 1 bathroom was tricky, but doable. It is an older home, but it was neat and clean and everything was provided. It was wonderfully located, close to the beach. The only reason I didn't rate it 5 stars is simply because it IS an older home and has older furnishings, but very reasonable place to stay! Thank you!
we were there only for 3 nights but found your home very comfortable. it was very neat and clean . we were all there from out of state for a wedding so we appreciated all the things that you left for our use. the only problem that we had was there was only 1 bathroom and all of us trying to get ready for our event was a little rough. I still would recommend this home for any vacationers visiting the area. the price of our stay was affordable.
We had a wonderful time in Rockport and this home was perfect for us! Priscilla was responsive and very accommodating; even had a crib for us to use! There were tons of toys and books for our toddler son to play with and keep busy. It was so convenient having a place with the full kitchen, washer/dryer, and all linens. All we had to worry about was the food! We enjoyed a daily walk down to the beach and the shops of bearskin neck.
The only suggestion I have for the owners would be to update the picture of the house since it appears to be a different color paint than what is shown--only confused us for a brief moment!
Thank you for a great stay!
From the moment we arrived it was a wonderful experience. The house is beautiful and fully stocked. We loved the seclusion of the house, yet within walking distance of Rockport, which was very convenient since we had two teenage boys. Phyllis is a wonderful host and very attentive. I will definitely rent this property again when we are up in the area.
What a truly perfect vacation we had! The house is lovely and very clean. Everything you need is there. The location was great- close to downtown but in its own quiet neighborhood. We really loved our time there!
A short drive takes you to Halibut Point state park for ocean-view hiking, or to the neighboring seaport city of Gloucester. The train to Boston is only a five minute walk away.
