Golden Cottage by the Sea

  • 4 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying here for several days in July 2016! The house is comfortable and cozy. It had all of the amenities one could desire, as well as amazing views out over the ocean! It is in a beautiful spot, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

Lovely cottage, location and amenities!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 7 met at Golden Cottage for a pre 4th of July escape! The house was wonderful: large, sunny, immaculate with a perfect yard for water fights (for kids of all ages) and bocce…

A fully equipped kitchen, two completely remodeled baths, two levels of decks, and lots of extra bath and bed linens are just a few of the homes features.

We enjoyed watching the lobster boats in the cove in the evening and our trips to Rockport and all of Cape Ann. The quarry at Halibut State Park is a favorite.

Thank you so much for a memorable week!!

Beautiful house, beautiful views and neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

The house is spacious, lots of bedrooms and lots of windows. Very light and airy. It is in a great neighborhood to walk around in. Backyard faces the ocean and has a very large grassy area for kids to play in. It is located just north of Rockport, about 6 minutes by car from the center of town.

Outstanding cottage in beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

This beautifully renovated cottage is in a lovely neighborhood, with amazing ocean views from the kitchen/dining area and decks, both upstairs and on the main level. There were 7 in our group and we had more than enough room with two full bathrooms with modern amenities. Cottage has been well maintained and had a fabulous coffee maker. Kitchen was fully stocked with dishes, utensils and pots/pans. Bathrooms had plenty of towels. Two bedrooms face the ocean. the living room is cozy with a game table and some games as well as a TV. the back yard is huge, flat, and beautiful. it's a short walk to a very rocky lovely beach. Finally, Rockport is a great little town. Having a car is a must for access to sandy beaches, the town, and grocery stores.

We had a wonderful time at the Golden Cottage in Rockport!! We stayed for a long weekend while in the area for a family wedding. Our three adult children (in their twenties), two girlfriends, and my husband and I all had a great time there. We loved the view from the back deck and ate breakfast there every morning. The beds are very comfortable and the towel supply was plentiful. We also loved walking around the town of Rockport. Most of our time was taken up with wedding activities, but we did manage to fit in a walk down the path to the scenic rocky beach. Overall it was a great stay and hope to come back again next year and stay longer!!
