Rockport apartment description

This historical, 19th-century waterfront house is located in the heart of Rockport directly on the Old Harbor.

Enjoy spectacular sunsets and ocean breezes from our 2nd floor pied a terre. Savour panoramic views of Sandy Bay from the living room and dining room. One bedroom, full bath and kitchen complete this idyllic retreat. The village galleries, shops, and restaurants, are all within walking distance. Park your car and walk to everything. From our cozy harbor front deck with bistro table, enjoy the panorama of seaside comings and goings, the quaint buildings on Bearskin Neck and Motif #1 along with the boating activities of the Old Harbor. You can launch your kayak from our property. At sea level, we have another small patio for dining and sitting with steps leading to the water and sandy beach. Across the bay, hear the music of the Sunday summer evening's concerts or walk a short distance to bandstand concerts at Back Beach. We are just a minute from Rockport’s stunning new Shalin Liu Performance Center and The Rockport Art Assn.

The commuter train to Boston is a 10 minute walk. Back and Front beach are only two minutes away and granite steps lead to the Old Harbor from the property. Boston and Logan Airport are 40 miles. Taxi service is available.
