A Gem for a Family Vacation in Rockport
"We have been visiting Cape Ann each summer for the past 12 years and have stayed in over 20 houses. This is probably the very best home we have rented. It is a large, well maintained, well-equipped, and beautifully decorated home. It was very comfortable for our family to be together as well as to spread out to be alone. The front porch and screened porch with views of the ocean were a highlight for all of us. The yard provided a pleasant surrounding and setting plus privacy from neighbors. The window air conditioning units were great to have on those few hot nights. The outdoor shower helped after a sandy day at the beach. Some of the other niceties the house had that are not always available in rental houses in Rockport included a hose at the back door, a maintenance man near-by (who we did not need but we knew he was available), beach chairs and beach gear, a full sized washing machine and dryer, a garbage disposal, the window air conditioning units, plenty of dining space both indoors and outdoors, and ample street parking. Walking in the area was enjoyable and safe because there is little traffic. The walk into Rockport was about 15 minutes---part of the walk can be on the ocean footpath. Our family goes to Good Harbor Beach which was only about a 10 minute drive. This is a great home for family vacation in Rockport!"

"The Golden Cottage in Rockport was a gem of a find. We cannot say enough about how wonderful it was for our long weekend getaway! We rented the home for a family get-together, and all 8 of us were very comfy. The bedrooms were all very cozy, bright and airy, and the downstairs rooms were open and spacious. The view from both decks is spectacular -- it was so pleasant waking up to that every morning. And you're only a quick walk down a short garden path to the water. The swimming off the rocks was great, but anyone who ventures down to the public waterfront, please be wary of the incredible amount of poison ivy along the shore! (Fortunately we were all very careful and no one was affected :) . The backyard and gardens are lovely, too --we saw lots of rabbits and fireflies, an added bonus. We wished we were staying for longer!"

"The owners were excellent to work with. The cottage was as described. It is quaint and vintage. A wonderful relaxing place. The ocean views are spectacular. The kitchen is well supplied. The area is filled with great little shops, restaurants, and other interesting activities. I hope to revisit the cottage soon."

"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"
