The backyard includes a propane BBQ grill, outdoor fire pit, and plenty of seating flowing out from the kitchen.

The house sleeps 7 people in beds and can accommodate 2 additional on the pull-out sofa in the TV room if desired. Sleeping spaces include:
- 2 upstairs master bedroom suites with en-suite full bathrooms and Queen beds
- Connected to each upstairs suite is an additional small bedroom with a Twin bed in each. Perfect for kids!
- Smaller main floor bedroom with Twin sized day bed that can be converted to a King sized bed if desired
- Living room couch that pulls out to a Queen bed
- We’ve also been known to doze off on the loungers out back and the various couches
On the ground floor of the house there is a separate "in-law" apartment with queen sized bedroom, kitchenette and bathroom. This space is not rented out separately and will be empty during your stay, however, if you are a large group and would like the extra space, it can be booked as well by request.
We stayed at this property in July of 2015 and rebooked for this summer. It's a wonderful historic house within walking distance to everything in town. There is room to spread out, enough baths, a small backyard, and a dedicated parking space (that fit our big Honda Odyssey). The house is very cozy. We've been going to Rockport every summer since my son was a baby and he's declared this his favorite, thanks to the books, nooks, and proximity to ice cream. There are no ocean views, but the sea is right down the street. My kids have especially enjoyed evening strolls. Very serviceable kitchen (we cook in a lot). Overall, a great space.
We spent a wonderful week in Rockport in this charming Colonial! The location was perfect...walking distance to shops, restaurants and the beach. Erin was very helpful in providing tips about the area, and giving us the details of the local activities. The house is certainly charming, and quite beautiful and interesting to look through, given its age. My children enjoyed exploring all of the rooms and staircases! We hope to be back to visit again.
We loved staying at your home! It was in the perfect location!
We enjoyed our stay very much in this adorable, clean, well-taken-care-of home. Beds were firm, furniture in good repair, and it had everything we needed, including bottle openers, backyard toys, linens, etc. It was truly a joy. The only suggestion I would give is that the owner try to increase the number of garbage cans; we were staying for 9 days and the garbage cans were full after day 3-4 (we brought a lot of paper plates and cups, and ordered pizza). We had to leave the bags in the back yard, where one of them was torn open by an animal. Not fun to clean it up! Also: the free parking that the town provides is not open at night, or on the weekends; so if you have more than one car, you need to park up the street, where there are no meters.
We loved our stay in this beautiful house. We have 3 teenage boys so were very happy to have 3 full bathrooms and a seperate living room for them to hang out in. Plus the washer and dryer was a life saver with all the beach towels and sandy clothes. We were here for the 4th of July and it was amazing to see the parade go by right in front of the house and then to walk to the big bonfire on the beach. Next Summer we will also rent the first floor "in-law" apartment which is empty so that we can spread out even more. Love every minute. Thanks Erin!
My family and I spent a most glorious vacation last summer at this beautiful home that is right in the heart of Rockport Village. We are making plans to return this summer. We love all of the period features of this home, and you can't beat its convenient location.
I did contact the owner (Erin) regarding a few concerns that were mentioned in another review. First, not having AC in the full house is really not a problem. We go to the ocean and love having all the windows open so that we can enjoy the ocean breezes that we came here to enjoy. We would not close up to run AC's, we can do that at home. No full size refrigerator/freezer; the European style is great for us as we go out to so many of the fabulous local restaurants anyway. They are all within short walking distance!!!! The counter temperature above fridge has been repaired; it was a minor issue anyway and is not convenient to guests having repairmen in to disrupt their vacation. I did ask about the comments about the neighbor and the smoke as we had no problems whatsoever. We had many fires in the fire pit and so enjoyed the back yard. Also, this elderly neighbor has since moved into a different living situation. All other neighbors are great; we met some of them. They are very friendly and nice. As to providing firewood; a quick trip to Cumberland Farms got us all the bundles we needed. It seems that providing firewood for the summer would cause multiple problems. Sounds like a nice idea--replace what you use, but as we all know, that would not happen.
Anyway, this is a lovely house in a super convenient location. I thought some review readers would like to know of my follow up with Erin on some of the concerns that were noted in a previous review, and that all have been addressed. I just reserved a week for this summer and can't wait for another vacation at this fabulous house!
