Stroll downtown to Bearskin Neck, Front Beach, shops and restaurants.
We do vacation rentals for all of our trips all over the country, and this is by far our favorite home we've found. The house is quite large and well appointed. The location couldn't be better - far enough from the harbor/restaurants/shops to be away from the traffic, but close enough to walk to everything Rockport has to offer. It is right across the street from the beach and the amazing view does not disappoint. The owner was so friendly and provided great customer service. We would absolutely recommend this property and are considering renting again next summer.
We had a wonderful stay at the beach house in Rockport. The location was perfect and the house was really well equipped.
The owner (Maureen) was incredibly helpful throughout the booking process and during our stay, which we really appreciated.
The one thing to note about Rockport is that most restaurants close surprisingly early - at about 8 o'clock. The lovely ice cream shops stay open a little later though, so it was easy to get dessert after dinner.
We would definitely return to Rockport, as it is the perfect base from which to explore Boston and the surrounding coastal towns.
Our family vacation was one of the most peaceful relaxing getaways that we've ever experienced. Maureen's house was comfortable, accommodating and in a perfect location. The house itself was welcoming clean & had everything we needed. Many times our family took the scenic 10 minute walk into beautiful downtown Rockport. We truly loved all of Rockport's quaint shops & wonderful restaurants. Two of our days were spent relaxing at Old garden beach which is only a two minute walk from the house. The beach itself was clean, clear & perfect for snorkeling. One other day we took the train into Boston for a Giants/Red Socks game. Unfortunately our beloved Giants lost but we were still so excited to see a game at Fenway park. The train station was only a couple of miles from Maureen's home and the train was such relaxing way to get into Boston. We have rented several vacation homes before and by far this was one of the best. We hope to be back!
We spent a glorious 5 days at this lovely house which is in a very nice neighbourhood away from the centre of town but only 5 minutes walk. The owners have thought of everything you may need and the house was spotlessly clean. Lots of lovely walks close by as well as easy access to the beach. A great house that we will hopefully return to
My family had such a wonderful time at Maureen's home. We love to cook and the highlight was the spacious, incredibly well equipped kitchen - I was pleasantly surprised by how easy it was to cook large meals with everything you could possibly need. This home is so well appointed it seems like a full time home rather than a vacation home. The furniture seemed brand new and the decorating was beautiful - making this home very welcoming and easy to relax in. We grilled and ate outside several nights, the yard is the perfect place to unwind.
The house has views of the ocean from all rooms and across the street is a wonderful little path along the water. The walk to Rockport is very quick, there are so many cute shops and restaurants. Historic Salem is a quick drive and the most beautiful beach is only 15 min away, Wingaersheek Beach.
I can't wait to stay at this home again!
My husband, parents and 2 small kids (ages 8 and 1) just came back from an amazing week in Rockport. We did investigate the nearby beaches (really enjoyed Long Beach and while Old Garden Beach wasn't that "beachy" it was perfect for quick dips and rock collecting!) and downtown - but to be honest, we were thrilled with just cooking out in the back yard and having morning coffee in the front yard whilst looking over the ocean. The house included so many amenities - it was like being at home! We are already planning another vacation for next year! Thank you so much!!
For over 160 years, people have traveled to Rockport, Cape Ann for our miles of lovely beaches, boulder-strewn paths through woods and glades, and that uncommonly magical light that has inspired painters since Winslow Homer. See Motif No. 1, the most-painted building in the world.
Just an hour's pleasant drive north of Boston, you can enjoy a romantic getaway, exquisite dining and unique shopping experiences. Pristine beaches, historic lighthouses and landmarks, museums, ocean attractions including deep sea fishing, kayaking, sailing, and more.
Rockport's historic attractions bring seacoast history alive with many attractions over 250 years old.
In Rockport, there truly is something for everyone.
From our property you can walk downtown to the historic Bearskin Neck. Visit the many art galleries and specialty stores. Enjoy a concert/event at the Shalin Liu Performance center or a game of golf at Rockport Golf Club. Drive to nearby Gloucester to visit Rocky Neck art colony or take in a whale watching trip. Take the train to Boston (about 65 mins) to take in the city sights. Or just relax on one of the many beaches.
