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!"

"I love staying here! Beauty, charm, walking distance to everything, only steps to the ocean. I love that it's so pretty here; love that when you walk into this beautifully designed studio you are walking into the living room, not into the bed. The bed pulls down easily from the wall behind the couch (a Murphy Bed) and is ever so comfortable. Plenty of space for your belongings. A place to truly call home during your visit, and the owners are lovely and trustworthy beyond measure. Place, location, people > all five stars. Thank you!! See you next year!"

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."

"What a perfect answer for our wonderful Cape Ann vacation. The house is located on a quiet residential area between Gloucester and Rockport, a short walk from Long Beach. What a welcome respite from the congested towns in late August. It was close to Shaw's Grocery store so our breakfast and lunches were easy to prepare in home. Open the windows and let the ocean lull you to sleep or inspire another chapter in your journal. Having Elizabeth's expert local advice was so great in finding the perfect excursions for our family of five. You rent the house from a stranger who quickly becomes so much less so. Elizabeth walked us to the beach, gave us pointers, then we never really saw her again for the rest of the week aside from her delivery of fresh towels. I can't say enough about their hospitality. I would rent again in a heartbeat."
