Rockport cottage description

FISHCAMP ROCKPORT – Your vacation paradise awaits… located behind the main house, these charming guest cottages sit pond-side under the oaks in a peaceful country setting. Whether spending quality time with friends & family or just enjoying some quiet time to relax & renew… this weekend retreat has it all!

Our spacious guest cottages have each been tastefully decorated with a vintage nautical theme and have all the comforts of home. You'll love the unique floor plans, comfortable interior furnishings and the overall coastal feel of our cottages.

There are numerous relaxing locations on the property to enjoy your morning coffee or afternoon cocktail. Each cottage has its own private deck and balcony… plus there’s a shared rustic gazebo, dock & pier that offer great opportunities for watching the abundant wildlife.

FISHCAMP ROCKPORT is a Certified Wildlife Habitat by the National Wildlife Federation.

Our beautiful property is located on the Live Oak Peninsula with Copano Bay to the North and Aransas Bay to the South. The nearest public boat ramp is just down the road at Cove Harbor Marina… Location! Location! Location!

Rockport is a perfect getaway place with quaint shops, art galleries & restaurants. The surrounding area offers great fishing and bird-watching… or it’s just a great place to kick back and relax at the beach.

Our guests always tell us that it’s much nicer than they expected... we invite you to come and experience the simple pleasures of FISHCAMP ROCKPORT.
