Charming Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We spent an o too brief time at this lovely waterfront cottage. The cottage is located down a dirt lane that ends with an expansive view of water, rocks, fishing boats, seabirds. Inside, it is perfect, bright & comfy with everything you need. The bathroom shower is one of the best ever, very unique. We did not spend much time in house as the outside lawn sloping down to the sea & rocks was the only place we wanted to be. Sitting on the Adirondack chairs or on the huge flat boulders, watching mist & fog lift in morning & sun setting in evening as fisherman check their traps. This is quintessential New England at it's best. The only possible negative is there is a house right next door, although closed for season when we visited, if that was occupied, it may change the scope of the visit. The owner stopped by to give us flowers from her garden, that was pretty neat & the widow boxes had mini pumpkins, it is the little attention to details that I loved about this charmer!

Idyllic Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is a special place that has both charm and an exceptional location. I would recommend that anyone booking should get all of their provisions before arriving. Once at the cottage one is quickly lulled into just staying put the entire time! We had a lovely week doing just that!

little slice of heaven in Gloucester

  • 5 of 5

My Husband and I had an unbelievable 4 nights at the Rockwood cottage in Gloucester. The cottage was perfect in every way. It was amazing to be able to wake up every day to such amazing views of the ocean.

Probably the best endorsement I can give this house is that my Husband and I packed our suitcases full with dress clothes, assuming that we would go out to dinner most nights while in Gloucester/Rockport. We never ended up wearing any of it because we never left the house. We got there and was like “Why leave this place? It is amazing”.

The house is an easy drive to Rockport and is equal distance between Good Harbor and Wingaersheek beaches.

The Cottage is clean and fully stocked with anything you may need throughout your stay.

We would definitely go back and rent the cottage again. Without a doubt it is a little slice of heaven in Gloucester. My Husband and I use Home Away all the time and this might be our best experience renting.
