Summer breezes, great location, friendly owners
"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."

"although this apartment is located on first floor of Lisa's home you would think it was it's own little cottage. It is gorgeous. Very nicely decorated with plenty of room for 2. This apartment is very clean-immaculate with great amenities. Loved that it was bright with plenty of outside light. The bed was very comfortable & we slept so well. It was nice sitting at the kitchen table having our coffee in the morning watching the neighborhood people walking their dogs. Nice short walk to ocean. Lisa welcomes her guests & is available to help & answer your questions. Would highly recommend staying here. My Husband & I hope to stay here again soon."

"We had a wonderful time at the Golden Cottage in Rockport!! We stayed for a long weekend while in the area for a family wedding. Our three adult children (in their twenties), two girlfriends, and my husband and I all had a great time there. We loved the view from the back deck and ate breakfast there every morning. The beds are very comfortable and the towel supply was plentiful. We also loved walking around the town of Rockport. Most of our time was taken up with wedding activities, but we did manage to fit in a walk down the path to the scenic rocky beach. Overall it was a great stay and hope to come back again next year and stay longer!!"

"This historic home near Plum Cove is very comfortable and well-equipped. The simplicity and peacefulness is perfect for a relaxing long weekend in the fall. We even enjoyed an evening stroll under the harvest moon. The memories will sustain us until next year when we hope to stay for longer! Thanks, Karen, for your hospitality and sharing your home with us!"
