Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Dining Area, Full Kitchen, Harbor Deck (Sleeps 4)

This custom-furnished, luxury apartment provides all the amenities that one may need to enjoy time at Rockport's most popular destination, Bearskin Neck.

The Mariner, located at 35 Bearskin Neck, offers: two bedrooms - the Bearskin Neck-side bedroom has a queen-sized bed and the Harbor-side bedroom has a king-sized bed; a full bath; a kitchen fully-stocked with everything one may need to prepare and enjoy meals; a dining area; a living room with flat-screen, cable TV; and deck with table and seating overlooking Rockport Harbor.

Art galleries, shoppes, and eateries are steps outside the front entrance, and Bradley Wharf, Rockport Harbor, and Motif #1 greet you at the rear entrance.

Lobsters are unloaded daily on Bradley Wharf, prepared next door at the Roy Moore Lobster Company, and enjoyed by many on their back deck 'in the rough'.

Parking is notoriously difficult on Bearskin Neck. However, we have a reserved parking spot across from Front Beach, an approximate 10 minute, pleasant walk along Main Street. We recommend dropping off luggage at the Bradley Wharf entrance to the apartment upon arrival, parking in the reserved spot, and walking back to the apartment.

About Justin Mierz

Justin grew up in Rockport and graduated in 1992 from Rockport High School before heading to East Carolina University in Greenville, North Carolina. Justin returned home after graduation, received a Master of Public Health from the University of Massachusetts, and met his wife, Marcie, in the North End in Boston. Justin spent 13 years as an Environmental Analyst for the Environmental Epidemiology Program at the Massachusetts Department of Public Health before resigning in 2013 to operate vacation rentals in Rockport. Marcie is a software engineering manager at NASDAQ in Boston. Justin and Marcie live with their two girls - Ava Mae (7 years old) and Sadie (4 years old) - on Atlantic Avenue in Rockport.

Why Justin Mierz chose Merrimack Valley & Essex County

This property has been in the family for generations. For many years, Justin's grandmother operated the Lobster in the Rough restaurant before the space was renovated in 2012 by Justin's mother and step-father.

What makes this apartment unique

The location of the Mariner is unparalleled. Guests enjoy a panoramic view of Rockport Harbor from nearly every room. Motif #1 is a stone's throw away from the Mariner deck. Restaurants, shops, and galleries are steps away.

SLAM DUNK....AGAIN

  • 5 of 5

This was our second consecutive stay at the Mariner. That alone should be telling. The place is great. Location unbeatable. Views unforgettable. Justin as a host incomparable. Spotless unit. Very comfortable and updated. Stacking washer dryer. Bed in back bedroom pictured here very comfortable King. Offsite parking at the Peg Leg Motel about a quarter mile away included. The central AC was out during our stay and Justin installed two window box units for our comfort which worked perfectly. He reduced our rate for the inconvenience but we did not oblige as he was swift in rectifying the deficit. Also tells you something. I would give The Mariner a 97% which is overall my best rating. It would be 100% if he allowed crated dogs as Rockport is a very dog friendly little town. His unit, his rules and I gotta respect that! Stay here as long as you don't take our week! You would be hard pressed to find a better place.

Exceptional Stay

  • 5 of 5

From the very moment we booked, our host Justin, couldn't have been more wonderful and accommodating. The Mariner is a hidden gem, in the heart of Rockport's Bearskin Neck. It was very clean with all the amenities including a good supply of linens, various necessities and a great selection of board games -- for those competitive families! Our family, who have not been together in years, relished the Mariner's location, sampling the local cuisine and walking through the quaint township. While small, the patio was a nice place for an evening drink and great view of the harbor. We recommend breakfast at the Red Skiff (you won't be disappointed). Everything about our stay at the Mariner was relaxing and fun. On a side note, we traveled a little further north to Maine during this trip and stayed at an Inn. The family all agreed - we should have just stayed longer at the Mariner. Thanks Justin.

This was an amazing property and the location was more than expected! Had such a great time. The weather was bad, but we loved it! The view of Motif #1 in the snow was perfect. The town is perfect. The Mariner was perfect. The owner was perfect. If you get a chance, stay here!
