A LITTLE BIT OF HISTORY (if interested)
Rockport has attracted visitors since 1606 when French explorer Samuel de Champlain landed on one of its shores what is now called Whale Cove.
Bear Skin Neck- the town center, is 2 miles away from the cottage. Legend has it that the small peninsula is so-named for menacing bears that early settlers routed onto the neck and hunted in 1700. It got its name after a bear was caught by the tide and killed. Along its small roads there are quaint stretches of old fishermen and lobster-men shacks that have gradually been turned into a tourist attraction of restaurants, shops and galleries.
Your breathtaking view of the Twin Lighthouses of Thatcher’s Island, named for Anthony Thatcher, an Englishman whose vessel, the Watch and Wait, was wrecked in a ferocious storm near the island in 1635 on its way to Marblehead from Ipswich, was once the first landfall of steamer ships from England heading for Boston and New York, and is now a popular kayaking destination and has biweekly boat trips from the town port.
Several large beaches are located in the town limits and still more in neighboring Gloucester.
Rockport latest new attraction is Rockport Music’s new Shalin Liu Performance Center, which presents renowned classical and pop artists.
The Gloucester Stage Company co-founded by winning playwright Israel Horovitz.
Fast and frequent train service to Boston is also available.

                            Our family has been staying at Eden Rock for the better part of the last decade. Prior to staying here we used to stay across the street at the former Rocky Shores cabins. We always admired this property when we stayed at RS, but always thought it was "out of reach". When Rocky Shores went "condo" we finally made contact with the owner of this beautiful property. I wish we had done that sooner! There are so many positive things to say about this property: #1 Location: Where ever you are coming from, chances are it is not as beautiful as this place. #2 Location: Sitting on the sea deck, watching the tide come in, or go out, with the twin lights of Thacher's Island right in front of you is a wonderful thing. Sitting on the sea deck watching a full moon come up between the lighthouses is surreal. #3 Location: There are beaches for all personalities within a short walk of Eden Rock. If you want an almost private beach experience there is the adjacent cove (loblolly). Pebble beach is not too crowded. Cape Hedge beach is more traditional, and usually has a lifeguard. Beyond Cape Hedge (but still walkable) is Long Beach, where you will find thousands of people who drove 30+ miles, and paid to park at the same beach you just walked to! #4 Rockport: Less than 1.5 miles from Eden Rock is the beautiful sea side village of Rockport. There are many shops, restaurants, and historical venues to take in. Doing the slightest bit of research will reveal many interesting things to do and see (hint: Sandy Bay Historical Society) #5 Cape Ann: Even though I can find no real reason to ever leave the confines of the beautiful Eden Rock property, sometimes we go to Gloucester, or even take the train in Rockport to Boston (40 minute trip) #6 The property owner is there. This is a positive, because the owner is a fantastic person, who wants nothing more than for you to have an enjoyable vacation! If you have a question about anything, she is there. If you want complete privacy, she is completely respectful. I can not say enough about Eden Rock. My family will continue to take our vacation there for as long as it is available to us. It is the defining moment of our year. We refer to things as "before Rockport, and after Rockport"

                            We have rented this house many times over the years. It's a very special place. The house is clean and comfortable and perfect for a family vacation. The view is fantastic and so is the location. There are lots of beaches, nice places to walk, shops and restaurants close by. I would highly recommend this house.

                            One of the most tranquil, attractive settings for a shore cottage. The view is spectacular from inside or outside. We are so grateful to have the opportunity to spend a week at this comfortable cottage.
