Beautiful ocean sunrises
This cozy cottage is nestled among large beautiful ocean-side homes; a wonderful area for walking and biking with little traffic. It slept four very comfortably; easy parking, fully equipped kitchen, wi-fi, etc. made our stay a breeze.
Marilyn was a gracious host; I felt I could call her about anything.
Wee Cottage is located between Rockport and Glouchester making it a short ride to either for swimming, fishing, shopping, and really great ice cream!
Cozy cottage with nice location and great view
Nice cottage with convenient location for exploring Rockport and Gloucester. Nice size for two to four people. Really appreciate that we could bring our pet. (He loved it also). Only comment is it’s a little pricey once you include the maintenance cost.
Horrible. I reported this. Left 2 weeks early. Filthy. Windows wouldn't open. Coffee pot and toaster didn't work. Shower curtain filthy. Fan filthy. Cob webs. Window broken. Bureau drawers had trouble opening and shutting. No microwave. Oven filthy. Burners didn't work properly. I want the 2 weeks I didn't stay there rebates. False advertising.
We expected the cottage to be small, probably older and a bit tired. That's what New England cottages are. This place exceeded our expectations. It was slightly dirty and needs a lot of repairs. Among other things, there is exposed wiring around the fuse box, the bedroom door knob fell off and is un-repairable, the bathroom floor mat was always wet (possible a leaking toilet), one of the stove burners didn't work, and the refrigerator was dirty. Aside from those things, you needed to be slim to use the toilet and an acrobat to use the tub/shower. We took pictures of some of the problems if you want to see them. This was advertised as "suitable for elderly or infirm". Only if you didn't want to use the bathroom. Nearby cottage with same design also advertised through VBRO warns of entry and bathroom problems. All of this made our stay unreasonable. We arrived Sunday afternoon and complained to the owner on Monday to see if we could get some kind of a rebate. We abandoned ship early Tuesday morning. Of course no rebate. We think that this is a case of false advertising and expect VRBO to frespond to this complaint.
We loved our week in The Wee Cottage! Rockport is such a cute town, close to many other fun places in Cape Ann. The cottage was great for our family of four and our dog. It has everything you need, plus a beautiful view out the front windows. Beaches are within walking distance and the community surrounding the house is very friendly. Marilyn even popped by to say hello! We couldn’t be happier with our choice for our summer vacation!
Nice little cottage
Cottage is small but is clean and has all the necessities. There is construction nearby so if you like to sleep in, maybe not the property for you. The neighbours are great, helpful and quiet.
