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.

Beautiful Views

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed every moment at this wonderful cottage, from the endless sunsets to the babbling brook. Joni & Kevin blended the old with the new and created a place to make lasting memories.

Looking forward to spending more time at this hidden gem!

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Joni's cottage this past July. The cottage was unique and perfect. It was so relaxing to sit on the warm granite rocks and enjoy the beautiful sunsets. Rockport and Glouscester are short drives and we enjoyed awesome seafood the entire week. The cottage is simple yet one of the nicest rentals we have enjoyed as a family. As funny as it sounds the shower was the highlight of our is amazing!! My husband and I will return without our kids for a romantic getaway.
