Outstanding Classic New England Ocean-View Home
"We stayed at this lovely property for a week in August, 2015, and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The house is architecturally beautiful, with a huge front porch for ocean viewing. The enclosed sun porch also looks out at the wonderful view, and both settings are ideal for relaxing and dining. Having grown up on the Massachusetts north shore, we felt at home in this upscale, quiet neighborhood, and it is an easy trip to several nearby beaches. The charming town of Rockport, with its many art galleries and shops, is walking distance as well. The entrance to the Atlantic foot path is right across the street from the house, and the walk along the cliff side trail is inspiring. With all there is to see and do on Cape Ann, you will never be bored, but this home is in such a terrific setting, that we found it hard to tear ourselves away.
The house itself is exceptionally comfortable, with a large, well-stocked kitchen. There are numerous areas of the home in which to gather and/or find a cozy spot to curl up with a book. The bedrooms are all air conditioned, and in August this was appreciated.
We plan to return next summer as well. This welcoming home is a wonderful find, and we plan to enjoy it yearly!"

"Just came back from week at The Penthouse. We had rented The Jewel downstairs last summer for a week. The unit is amazing. Other folks in building are great! Small dogs are good if prior auth with Deb the owner. She is very fair and ultra responsive to questions and needs. I almost don't want to share what a good find this place is!😄"

"The cottage and its location are a piece (or peace) of heaven. I close my eyes and dream about it when I'm not there. The cottage has lots of character and the owner has thought of everything you might need. Although the cottage is conveniently located near Rockport (walking distance away) and Gloucester, there is NO incentive to leave the property. It is also located in a very lovely area to walk and ride bikes. Lots to do and see in the surrounding area. Highly recommend it"

Clean, comfortable, well-appointed, close to beach and village with parking!
"The title says it all. This is a very clean, updated, comfortable unit in an excellent location, nearly equidistant from the seaside village of Rockport and the comfy Front Beach. By foot, it's two minutes to dining, shopping, and galleries and about five minutes to Front Beach. Though close to the village, it's not loud, as it's tucked down a side street leading to a beautiful granite pier. One can see the ocean and pier from the numerous windows and from the cozy porch. The dedicated off-street parking space is a dream, and makes it far more enticing to take short day trips of the surrounding area--and there's lots to do within a short drive including a selection of larger beaches, whale watching, and various historical tours. There's also a train station that's about a 15 minute walk for those inclined to see Boston without the hassle of driving. Although we don't have pets, the upstairs renters had dog, and it's pet friendly. We come to Rockport every year and this was by far our favorite place."
