Property description

Located in historic Rockport, on Cape Anne, Massachusetts, this charming 4 bedroom ocean-view cottage is just an hour's drive north of Boston. Enjoy beautiful beaches, rocky coastline, lighthouses, museums, art galleries, antique and gift shops, not to mention numerous ocean attractions including whale watching, kayaking, sailing, and much, much more.

Ideally situated, the home is just a 10-15 minute seaside walk to the quaint shops, restaurants and art galleries in downtown Rockport, and even less to the neighborhood beach. In addition to dining, gallery-hopping or shopping in town, you may opt to rent kayaks on Bearskin Neck, climb on the rocks that form the break-water in the harbor, pick up lobster or fresh fish for dinner, or simply pause to dangle your feet off the wharf as you take in the spectacular harbor views including that of the famous Motif #1 fish shack. Rockport is also home to a summer Chamber Music Festival, and the new Shalin Liu Performance Center, which opened in June 2010.

Within a short drive, day trips abound to other local beaches and attractions nearby. Go whale watching or deep sea fishing from the seaport and fishing community of Gloucester. Hike at Halibut State Park around an old rock quarry and along the ocean. Enjoy antiquing in Essex or Newburyport, or swimming and sunbathing at the beautiful Crane Beach in Ipswich. The train to Boston is only a five minute drive away. Or if R&R is what the day calls for, imagine curling up with a book in the sunroom or on the Adirondack chairs on the front porch.

This spacious home sleeps 7-8, and is ideal for one or two families vacationing together, or two couples. The first floor includes a fully-stocked kitchen and adjacent family room, a large living room, dining room, bathroom (with shower) and cozy sun porch with ocean views. The 3 bedrooms on the second floor comfortably sleep a total of 6. The third floor is perfect for children; one bedroom has two single beds. An additional single bed is located in a separate third-floor playroom. Both the second and third floors have full baths.

The home is comfortable, tastefully decorated and spacious, the perfect spot for a fun-filled, yet relaxing vacation!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1997

About the owner: We're a family of five, based in Kentucky, but with hearts in New England. We've spent the better part of our last 18 summers in Rockport enjoying the best of what a Massachusetts seaside town has to offer. As our children are now in college and/or working, we'd love to share our Rockport experience with others.

Why the Owner Chose Rockport:
My husband and I have enjoyed vacationing in New England since we married in the early 80s and fell in love with Rockport the first time we visited. We instantly appreciated why so many artists chose this locale -- it's beauty is truly breath-taking. The town offers absolutely everything we love in a vacation spot, plenty of options for outdoor activities, like biking, hiking, swimming and kayaking, opportunities to enjoy music and art, as well as great food and R&R. Although we love our Kentucky home, we look forward to cool temps and sea breezes that typify summers in Rockport. Soon after our children were born, we wanted to continue to share this beautiful area with them and decided to purchase a home in Rockport where we could spend many summer weeks.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our home offers ocean views and breezes, proximity to a neighborhood beach as well as art, music and food in the downtown area, and opportunities to enjoy all the outdoor activities we love, including hiking, biking and relaxing at the beach.
