Located at the mouth of Bearskin Neck this incredible 2 bedroom condo is 20 ft to Rockport Harbor. You can sit in the living room, or your deck and watch the comings and goings of Rockport Harbor, and the famous Motif #1. Walk through the nicely renovated 2 bedroom condo, and you can view all the activity of Bearskin Neck from your bedroom window. Totally in-town location, yet unsurpassed views of the Harbor. Only a 2 minute walk to the beautiful newly constructed Shalin Liu Performance Center! Only a 5 minute walk to Front Beach, a family friendly beach and swimming area.
The condo itself is spacious and has a fully appliance kitchen. Decorated with style you can come home from a day of shopping, site-seeing, or sailing to a cozy and oh-so picturesque spot. This place is Quintessential Bearskin Neck... You will enjoy it!
Please visit the webcam at bluefishpropertycam(dot)blogspot(dot)com - you get the same view as the camera!
There are new picture windows in the living room for even cleaner views of the harbor. Additionally, we've upgraded our air conditioning system to a new Mitsubishi heat pump system that will quietly keep you very comfortable on hot days.
Marcella Partners bought this home in 2009 as it was in an area our Grandmother truly enjoyed. She always enjoyed Bearskin Neck, and we think she might have even been inside the building (in the past it was a boat house, and a bowling alley). It was purchased as an investment property, but we have enjoyed staying many weekends in the home as we renovated it.

Views, views, views... nothing like looking out to Rockport Harbor with a nice cup of coffee in the morning.
We relaxed, toasted our anniversary, stared out the windows, walked the village. Enjoyed the boats, snow, sun & wind. Birds, coziness and happiness. Our joy also renewed love for Rockport.
Ideal location, fantastic harbor views from the living room and patio. Comfortable accommodations, well stocked kitchen and helpful management. Slight issue with off site parking and steep stairs but would still book this condo again-great value for the price. Harvestfest was fun but do note that after Columbus Day many restaurants and shops have either already closed or have erratic days and hours of operation. Red Sciff and Nate's both good for breakfast (Nate's closes for the winter starting November 1st) and of course Roy Moores and Fish shack a main staple.
We have always been happy with our VRBO choices, but this one takes the cake. It was convenient, adorable, friendly neighbors, and most of all the view made it hard to look away. Owners were welcoming and good to deal with. Recommending this place to everyone!
This rental was perfect! The location couldn't be better right in the middle of all of the shops. The view of the Motif is outstanding. The apartment was larger than I expected and very comfortable. I would definitely stay here again.
This place is a perfect location and very comfortable. The only suggestion we have is that you need black out shades or shutters to allow for better sleep. The street lights and store lights make it difficult to get to sleep and to stay asleep other that's that it is the perfect place to stay in Rockport! This was our second time staying there and we will continue to come back year after year. I also told several people on the beach about it when they told us how unhappy they were with the places they were staying in. The extra 1/2 bath makes it very convenient.
I have only been home for 4 hours from my week on Bearskin Neck and ready to go back. I just requested my week for next year. Next year will be my fifth year...
The condo is wonderful for many reasons, but you can't beat it for the location. All my favorite restaurants are within walking distance. I never even used my car while I was there! All the local people/neighbors are so friendly and welcoming to their town. I feel very much at home while there and hated to leave. It will be hard to wake up tomorrow with no seagulls and sounds of the harbor. I highly recommend this condo for however long you can stay...you won't be disappointed.
"Marcella By The Sea" is a very comfortable two bedroom unit with a separate kitchen, dining area, living room, and 1 1/2 bathrooms.
In 25+ years of vacations in Rockport, relatively little (by comparison to other shore communities) has changed - which is a very good thing! "Marcella By the Sea" provides a link to the history of Rockport as well as a very nice place to stay.
The living room and kitchen areas have a direct "up close and personal" view of the harbor. I found myself just looking out the window for hours at a time.
The owner/management group was very quick to respond to a cable/Internet outage and were also on hand to shovel the deck and steps after a nor'easter came in that dropped 20" of snow in the area. They were very responsive before and during our stay.
The bedroom side of the unit is directly on the main road of Bearskin Neck. I was able to watch the New Year's Eve parade without having to go out in the cold! In the summer the downside to the bedrooms would be street noise, but the living room/dining/kitchen areas facing the harbor should be quiet, as the parking area on that side is for residents only.
The unit is in easy walking distance of local restaurants. In the winter time that means the Red Skiff and Rockport House of Pizza, so there's always something available if you don't want to cook. The kitchen is well stocked and the range and refrigerator are full size, so cooking a real meal if you don't want to go out is easily managed. I particularly appreciated finding a can of coffee in one of the cabinets -although a coffee shop is just steps away on Bearskin Neck.
Marcella By the Sea is a comfortable and convenient option for your next trip to Rockport!
Located in Historic Bearskin Neck - 35 Miles North of Boston.
