  • Family gathering

    "We came up from Texas for my niece's wedding. There were 9 of us staying here. PLENTY of room and kitchen is very well stocked of any cookware you may need. We had a shrimp and lobster boil one night,(plenty of lobster pots) and sat on the deck to relax. Weather was wonderful, had to sleep with a light blanket a couple of nights. The house may seem outdated, but if you are interested in the New England experience and want a comfy place to stay, THIS IS IT!!!! ( If I ever have the pleasure to come up this way again I will definitely stay here.) Photos of the house are great, lets you know the quaintness. The Deck off the back has amazing views of the river and are GREAT for morning coffee and evening cocktails. Gloucester is a quaint little town and Rockport is just up the way, Boston is great place to spend the day and head back here for the evening of relaxation. The owner is VERY nice and personable. HIGHLY recommend this jewel of peaceful bliss to ALL!!!!"

  • Adorable Home - Convenient location

    "Adorable home with great sized kitchen; washer & dryer are a bonus to renters; living room could use a comfortable chair as an alternative to the sectional couch for seating; bedrooms are accommodating, however a bed in one upstairs bedroom had a broken box spring frame. The backyard picture is outdated - unfortunately the lovely flower garden in the center of the back yard no longer exists - it is now a large unkept overgrown circle of some sort of thorny bush - difficult for small children to play around. As noted in another review - the stairs are extremely steep for young children to navigate and upstairs bedrooms have no doors for privacy or sound control from downstairs. Otherwise this house is a great location, easy walk to Rockport village shops, restaurants and lovely Front Beach - quiet & peaceful to watch sailboat classes and paddle boarders ."

    "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."
