Best in downtown Rockport

  • 5 of 5

Just came back from week at The Penthouse. We had rented The Jewel downstairs last summer for a week. The unit is amazing. Other folks in building are great! Small dogs are good if prior auth with Deb the owner. She is very fair and ultra responsive to questions and needs. I almost don't want to share what a good find this place is!😄

Best of Cape Ann

  • 5 of 5

The place was beautiful, and the rental process seamless. I cannot imagine a better location, in the heart of the downtown Rockport on one side, overlooking the water on the other. You can either park the car and forget it, or you're perfectly based to explore the rest of the North Shore. Our three-year old loved it as much as we did. This ended up being a working vacation for me, but doing my work with a cup of coffee overlooking the water made it much less so. Deborah and Amy were wonderful, and I cannot recommend the place highly enough.

Absolutely Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

The Penthouse at Pier & Main exceeded our expectations in every regard. We were expecting the property's fantastic location & views, having been to Rockport many times before. But we were delighted at how beautiful and immaculate the penthouse itself was. Bright, sunny and welcoming, everything from the furnishings, decor and amenities were top-notch. The kitchen is well-appointed and we enjoyed many fresh seafood dinners, utilizing the BBQ and relaxing on the spacious deck with the unbeatable views of the harbor.

The fact that the property is pet-friendly was a huge attraction for us. To be able to vacation with our dog was great! Rockport is a very pet-friendly town and our pup loved going for walks on Bearskin neck and made many friends along the way.

It was great to meet Deborah, who was always available for any questions and advice on where to go & what to do in Rockport and the surrounding area.

We had a wonderful time and look forward to returning again & again!

My wife and I booked the Penthouse the week of our Daughter's graduation. The property exceeded our expectations. It is centered in downtown Rockport close to shops and many resturants. The views from the propety are amazing waking up each morning from the upstairs bedroom we enjoyed coffee on the balcony looking at the water. We also enjoyed eating at the kitchen island overlooking the water. Well appointed kitchen for cooking. A harbor view house with many modern conveniences, very comfortable. Deborah was very accomodating and welcoming as well. Would stay again in a heartbeat.

The Penthouse is wonderful!. Very spacious and comfortable, beautiful view from living room and decks. The photos give an accurate overall view of the property. The kitchen is well appointed for those who want to cook the great local seafood. The entire property is in great condition, Deborah has thought of everything! The location is great for walking around Rockport, going to the many beaches, beautiful drives to Ipswich, Gloucester, Essex. Close to museums and historic sites. I would suggest this property to anyone!

More than expected

  • 5 of 5

The Penthouse in Rockport is everything you could ask for in a vacation home. The description and pictures are nice but they fail to capture the beauty and charm of Rockport. We rented the house for the week while visiting to run the Boston Marathon. We were a little concerned about being an hour from Boston and in a town that appears secluded on the map. We were so surprised when we arrived. The Penthouse is beautiful and the view is amazing. The local artist community was also a huge surprise. The shops in Rockport offer something for everyone and the owners are so welcoming. The drive to Boston was so easy and the train is very convenient. Deborah is so easy to work with and she went above and beyond to make this a very special trip for us. We had six adults, one child and two dogs. There was plenty of room for everyone.
