"This house was perfect for our family- new born included. We had 7 people and the only draw back was that it had only one bathroom. Perfect location for shopping, beach, access to Boston, Salem and Gloucester as well."

"We just completed our 3rd stay at Rocky Neck Retreat. It is a wonderful top floor apartment with an outstanding, huge deck overlooking the waters of the back bay. We spent lots of time enjoying the deck at all times of the day, often eating our meals out there. Half of the deck is covered, and half open. Brian and Karen, the owners, are very attentive to whatever you need, but also give you your privacy. There was a constant breeze thru the apartment and each room has its own ceiling fan. Even in the hottest part of the summer, we truly enjoyed the wonderful breezes and fresh cool air. We give this experience our highest scores, and we will be back for a 4th time before too long."

"Our family visited Gloucester for the first time and stayed in this lovely cottage. It was a great location, just up the road from the beautiful beach. Our boys (11 & 12 yrs old) loved digging for hermit crabs (using the buckets and shovels provided at the cottage) and wading in the cool water- they could just walk there from the house. Mary Ann was just lovely and so personable and helpful with directions, what to do, check-in, and any questions! She had great recommendations for whale watching (Cape Ann), shopping and scenic drives and walks. The loft was perfect for the boys. They had their own tv and space to relax. The stairs up to the loft would be challenging for young children or older folks. The kitchen was well stocked, clean and spacious and having the washer/dryer was a plus! The main floor bedroom had plenty of closet and drawer space, extra blankets, and privacy. The cottage is attached to the larger house, which was vacant during our stay. It may have been a little "too close" if we had to share parking and outside space w/ people we didn't know. It would be perfect for 2 families or groups traveling together to rent both cottage and house, since they are attached. Wi-Fi was not always working or a strong signal, but they quickly came out to correct it. Would definitely recommend this rental and working with MaryAnn and Steve. Very friendly and helpful and proud of their lovely town of Gloucester."

"I am a long time visitor to Rockport and I have stayed at various inns over the years. This apartment is the perfect little retreat! It has all the necessities for a single or couple and is directly across from the beach. It is also only a two minute walk to the main shopping area so a car is not necessary to enjoy all that downtown Rockport and Bearskin Neck have to offer. The owners are lovely and very accommodating and create a very comfortable atmosphere for the visitor. It is also priced very well for Rockport. I would definitely recommend this rental property. I hope to come back!"
