Charming 3 Bed, 1 bath seasonal cottage with fireplace and porch with ocean view

Cottage on the Pond is tucked away from the summer crowds at the end of a picturesque lane with ocean views from the front porch, and views of the mill pond from the backyard hammock. We are conveniently located to all Rockport amenities – a two minute stroll to Front Beach; a one minute walk to the park and five minutes to famous Bearskin Neck alive with boutique shoppes, seafood restaurants and attractions for all ages. Some of our favorite moments here are sipping coffee while watching the sunrise from the privacy of our screened in porch, afternoons grilling outside in the backyard as the sun sets through the old oak trees, and cool rainy days by a cozy fire. With three bedrooms that sleep up to six people, the Cottage on the Pond is the perfect family destination.

About Louise

Our family has had a home in Rockport for almost 400 years. Cottage on the Pond was built by our ancestors who were local fishermen, and has been a base for our family throughout the seasons and years. Let us open our homes and welcome you to spend time in this little slice of perfection.

Louise purchased this Cottage in 1880

Why Louise chose Rockport

This has been our home away from home for generations. It is the perfect spot to enjoy a vacation.

What makes this Cottage unique

Nothing beats an afternoon on the front porch looking out to the ocean.

                                                                I can't say enough good words about our stay in Rockport. This hideaway cottage is so close to everything but we yet tucked away from the bustle of the main area. It was the perfect spot for our family reunion.

                                                                While we loved exploring the town our favorite times were simply sitting on the front porch and looking out to the ocean in the distance. One of our favorite places we've ever stayed at.

                                                                The perfect hideaway!

                                                                The Cottage on the Pond was the perfect spot for a getaway. We stayed inside by the fire the entire time. We did have a chance to explore Rockport, which is truly a gem of a town. We're already looking forward to staying next year!

                                                                Fantastic Personal Touch

                                                                So happy I came back to this lovely and well kept property😎
