About William Roe

We are a retired couple living in Hingham MA and enjoy boating and water sports.

William Roe purchased this House in 2009

Why William Roe chose Scituate

Minot is a wonderful family neighborhood with a low key and relaxed atmosphere. With water on two sides, one side of our property looks out over the water to 'The Glades', also known as the 'Adams Estate', a mostly undeveloped peninsula with a gorgeous rocky coastline. We love paddling in the many little coves to be discovered and going to picturesque Cohasset Harbor, where there are a few nice restaurants right on the water. Coming back we sometimes paddle up a tidal river which runs right across the street from our house. We have a fantastic view of the historic Minot Lighthouse which is also known as the 'I Love You Lighthouse' because of its 1-4-3 flashing sequence. Our property includes a small beach which we use to swim and launch our kayaks. The tide poolscasrved out of solid rock ledge right off our back deck, are always fun to explore and constantly change with the 9 foot tides here. Step off the rock directly onto sandy North Scituate Beach which at low tide adjoins Egypt Beach. It is possible to take a two or three mile walk or run right on the beach. We take walks there nearly every evening. Since there is very little public parking, the beach is seldom really crowded and is used mostly by folks in the neighborhood. Most of the terrain is relativly flat, making for easy biking through the quiet streets that are lined with many lovely homes. The sunrises and sunsets are typically breathtaking. We are able to see the morning sunrise while lying in bed and and enjoy the sunsets while sitting on the deck in the evening. The location and people here are so pleasant that it is just a wonderful place to be and the superb views from the house just make it even more so.

What makes this House unique

Compared to other properties, this house sits directly at the waters edge with the water on two sides and is sited so as to provide relative privacy. The house is set out slightly farther than others so there are tremendous views from both inside and outside. We have undertaken extensive renovations since acquiring the property in 2009 including a new kitchen and interior finishes. Most of the furnishings are also new. The outdoor space is expansive with decks at two levels and additional outdoor seating at the ground level around a small fire pit. The accommodations are very comfortable with a very large master suite and 4 additional bedrooms. Not touristy or commercial and slightly off the beaten path, this is a quiet, family area where the people are warm and friendly. The ocean views here are magnificent and the beaches are not normally overly crowded. The location is between Boston and Cape Cod and there is a commuter train stop which is only about a two or three minute drive from the house. It is fun to take the ferry boat from Hingham into Boston. There are also ferry boats which go to some of the Boston Harbor islands during the summer months which is another fun activity. The ferry terminal is a short drive up route 3A. A day trip to the Cape or Plymouth Plantation are easy activities. There are a number of nice shopping areas and restaurants within a 10 to 30 minute drive. Super markets are a 6 minute drive by car. A number of deep sea fishing charters leave out of Scituate Harbor. What we like most though is just being at the house here and enjoying the water and natural surroundings.

                                                        This was one of our best trips ever!! The house is spotless. Beautiful kitchen fully stocked with everything anyone could need. The unique floorplan provides the opportunity for people to seek out private space to just read or relax while others can watch TV or play a game in the enormous dining room. The house has a lot of New England charm. We planned our days to enable us to enjoy our mornings and evenings at the house and go out and about during the day. There was a ton of provisions, bikes, kyacks, grill, etc. we were free to use. We thoroughly enjoyed making a fire in the fire pit and sitting around it at night gazing up at the stars. As wonderful as the property was, the owners were even better. Bill met us at the house and showed us around and answered any questions we had. He was more than accommodating!!!!! Look forward to going to the Rockview house again!!!!!

                                                        Great home with all the amenities. Loved sitting on the porch and having a full view of the water. Owner was great to work with. I would highly recommend rental of this property.

                                                        Wonderful Experience

                                                        Marsi J.Bloomington, IN

                                                        We initially booked this as a home base while hitting Boston and points south. This home, however became more of the destination for us. We found ourselves reluctant to pull away from, everyday rearranging our itinerary to accommmodate for more time at the house. You will not be disappointed. Thank you William and Ellen, we had a wonderful time. There were some tears when we had to leave.

                                                        Beautiful summer vacation

                                                        Bruce and Maggie T.-

                                                        This is one of my favorite places to stay. The house is perfectly appointed and comfortable for family gatherings. The huge deck is great for relaxing and watching the tide come and go. My kids have found snails, starfish, and crabs in the tidal pools on the rocks. It's a place to be as active as you like with beach activities and kayaks or to get away from it all. We'll be back next year!

                                                        10 family members from out of state stayed at this house the end of September and had a wonderful time. Great location with spectacular veiws of the ocean (neat hi powered telescope on 2nd floor). The house was a comfortable fit for the group--clean,well maintained and equiped. The owners were very friendly and accessable, met us when we arrived and gave us a walk through tour & info about the house and fun things to do in the area. We had a great time and would definitly return.
