The living room features a comfortable queen sleep-sofa bed, coffee table, and wall-mounted 47" TV screen, as well as a gas parlor stove for added seasonal warmth. A large square dining table seats 8. A fully equipped kitchen with a breakfast bar, and a half bath are also on this level.

Very cute cottage in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a four night stay with my wife and 7-year old daughter, and we really enjoyed our stay. The cottage is very well appointed and cozy, and we enjoyed the proximity to Lane's Cove, which is really pretty. And the surrounding Lanesville neighborhood is charming. Overall, highly recommended!

Great location and very comfortable carriage house!

  • 5 of 5

This renovated top to bottom carriage house was an extremely comfortable place to stay. Our group of 6 ranged in age from 6 to mid-70s and we were all happy at this location. We love Lanesville for being midway between Rockport and the city of Gloucester. The carriage house backs right up to Lanes Cove and is also walking distance to Plum Cove beach which is one of our favorite places to watch the sunset. The kitchen is well equipped and we ate a number of meals there. The lower level is especially well set up for children with the bunk beds, twin beds and lower level full bath. The upper level above the main living area is a very comfortable master suite including a jacuzzi tub! All in all a great place to stay!

beautiful spacious house - fabulous setting

  • 5 of 5

We were 5 high school classmates in our 60s, extending our school reunion (International School in India)- and we just loved our stay at the Carriage House. It was perfect for visiting Rockport for shopping, cooking together, late night chats, walks to the cove to see the sunset, walk to Plum Cove beach for a swim, separate level sleep areas; overall excellent! Highly recommended. Thank you to our hosts!

Excellent Location & Property!

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with this property. We rented the Carriage House for 10 days after renting the Roses' 1 BR Apt (VRBO #485229) for an earlier 10 days while in the Rockport/Gloucester Area for a family wedding (Two consecutive rentals). Both properties were clean, well-furnished and comfortable. The park-like yard suited us well for entertaining guests.

This property is located in a quiet neighborhood. A carry-out/convenience store, cafe, Post Office and beauty shop are all within a walk of 3 - 4 minutes.

The sunsets over the Ipswich Bay are wonderful!

The Roses are very helpful. Any question was promptly answered cheerfully.

We would consider renting at either of their properties again.
