Rockport house description

This tastefully decorated home is ideal for a Romantic Couple to enjoy spectacular sunsets and beautiful ocean views from every room.

You can have it all, informal beach experience and cultural activities. The best property in Rockport, Seven Knots sits forward of all others on the beach. Get the sense of total privacy and quiet on deck and patio or swim from the semi-private beach. If you crave more action, walk out to the hustle and bustle of Historic Rockport with its public beaches, galleries, shops and restaurants. You are only steps from the Shalin Liu Performance Center which features outstanding music and performers and across the street from the Art Association. Go to the Top Dog for a 'gourmet' hot dog or to My Place By The Sea (among others) for a full gourmet meal and don't forget to stop in at Tuck's for your before bed chocolate treat!

Don't be fooled by the number of bedrooms listed. There are two loft areas upstairs, one with a queen bed, one with a trundle which can be used as a single twin, two twins or a king. Although there are no walls, these areas are more private than you may think for your short-term or weekend guest. Couch in the living room pulls out to queen for additional sleeping.

Love to cook, even on vacation? You won't be frustrated in this kitchen which is well equipped with both equipment and food staples to cook almost anything.

The Rockport train station is within walking distance, unlocking all the activities and attractions of Boston even if you don't have a car. Or, go just one stop to Gloucester to visit a working seaport, or go on a whale watch adventure.

Please note: we have a 7 night minimum stay policy. Also, Check out our monthly and off season discounted rates. Thanks!

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              This is a truly unique property. The house sits farthest forward from its neighbors giving you the feeling that you own the beach exclusively. There is privacy when you need it, crowds and excitement when you don't. The open loft plan makes this a perfect beach house for convening the family.
