Best in downtown Rockport
"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!😄"

"We recently had a wonderful stay at this home in Gloucester. It has a fantastic view of the water and is in such a quiet neighborhood that we had wonderful peaceful mornings and evenings watching the boats go by. My kids loved exploring the shore at low tide and collecting shells and hermit crabs. The house confortably fit our large group and everyone was impressed with how well kept the house is, the family really cares for the property. We have been traveling to Gloucester every year for a long time and this is by far the best place we have stayed. Unique, comfortable and charming New England coastal cottage. Parking is a little tight on the narrow road but was still able to accommodate all our many vehicles! It is also less than 10 minute drive down to the Harbor. We hope to return to this home on our next trip to Gloucester."

"My husband and I rented the Gray Gull for a week in August. I have to say, I think it's situated on the best lot on Plum Island. There are great water views from three sides of the house. The house is located at the end of a road, and you truly are ten steps from the beach. This beach on this area of the island is great for children, as the water is calmer. We had front-row seats each night on the deck to unobstructed water and sunset views. I was also pleasantly surprised to see that the furniture and some of the finishings were actually MORE updated that what is depicted in the pictures on this site. The cottage is tastefully furnished with a decorating style that's part Pottery Barn, part Mid-Century Modern. The kitchen had everything we needed, and the bathroom appeared to have been recently renovated. I'd highly recommend this rental."

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."
