About the property

2 Bedrooms Plus Loft And Pullout Sofa, 1 Bath And Outside Shower

After the success of A Breezy Cottage, we set our sails on The Life of Reilly! The property was purchased in September, 2013 and it is ready to be enjoyed! A wonderful, nautically appointed cottage two houses away from our other rental and a very short walk to the charming beaches of Rockport, MA. It comfortably sleeps up to 7 people including a a queen sized master bed, a full size bed, a single futon in the loft as well as a pull out sofa in the living room. An airy and sunny cottage located on a quiet cul de sac just outside of town, this home is a peaceful retreat while being so close to the beaches and town. The yard is open for games, outside cooking and dining or just relaxing. In its prime location, guests are a short walking distance to scenic downtown Rockport. Rockport's main attraction, Bearskin Neck, is filled with restaurants, art galleries, tourist shops and much more. Guests can find activities such as kayaking to the Twin Lighthouses to sharing a stuffed clam from Roy Moore Lobster Co. The Shalin Liu Performance Center is the newest addition to our quaint town and brings in musical artists such as Paula Cole, Judy Collins and string performances by John Jorgensen Quintet.

Summer 2014 will be the first season for The Life of Reilly and we are very excited to meet new friends and share our adorable beach cottage! Be some of our first guests and we are sure you will make this vacation home your new summer tradition!

The life of Reilly is such a quaint and wonderful cottage. Elizabeth was so kind and helpful for all of our questions. Rockport is such a lovely beach town and a wonderful place to stay! I can't recommend the life of Reilly enough!!!!

Cozy cottage in a great little harbor town.

  • 4 of 5

We are a family of 5 and really enjoyed our little getaway in Rockport. The cottage was clean and quaint - a little tight when we had guests visiting, but not overly uncomfortable. Liz was kind and very helpful when we had any questions. Rockport is a great little town. We loved Bearskin Neck, which is within walking distance (even for our four-year-old). We took the train to Salem for Halloween, which was a bit overwhelming for us country folk (from MT), but an experience none-the-less!

Cute cottage, GREAT location!!!

  • 4 of 5

My family and I enjoyed our weekend stay at the Life of Reilly cottage and would love to come back in the summer to really enjoy the water view and walk into town. Liz lives right across the street and was available if we needed her. The cottage was extremely neat and clean, with a cozy wood stove. I would recommend this cottage for a couple or small family since there is only one bathroom.

Great cottage with all the amenities!

  • 5 of 5

I have been renting Liz's cottage since the beginning of April and couldn't be happier. Liz and her husband are very nice and live right across the street so if there are any questions...they are easily answered! Easy 2 minute walk into Rockport town. I only wish I could be here in the summer! Highly recommend the Life of Reilly cottage for a visit to Rockport.
