Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)
With only steps to Lumber Wharf and Old Harbor, this newly-renovated one bedroom apartment is ideal for a Vacation on Cape Ann.
The building was originally built in 1680 in the very heart of Downtown Rockport (completely renovated in 2007) and is just down the street from the new Shalin Liu Performance Center, home of the Rockport Chamber Music Festival and across from the Rockport Art Association.
One parking space (included with rental) assures guests that parking won't be a problem, even at the height of the tourist season. Walk to Bearskin Neck, retail stores, galleries, restaurants and coffee shops.
Trains to Boston with stops in other charming communities along the way are also within walking distance. Both Front and Back Beaches are an easy walk from this wonderful Downtown location.
The apartment offers a full laundry, a lovely and bright, fully-equipped kitchen with granite 'peninsula' (seats 4 comfortably), plus tasteful furnishings and decorations. Built-in A/C is provided should sea breezes not suffice. Small pet acceptable with owner's prior approval.

The good news, or one of the bits of good news, is that parking for one car is directly outside the door. Having rented other places where the car was a bit of a hike, we really liked this. While literally steps away from Bearskin Neck, it is also tucked away from the crowds that infest the neck, and all the assorted delivery trucks and the trash pickup guys. Which means quiet, and no truck outside your bedroom window at 7 a.m. or earlier. We stayed there for two weeks in August, 2016, and quite loved it. The management folks are very nice, and accommodating to odd requests (due to a family wedding we had some time constraints a bit outside of their regular hours.) Very highly recommended.
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.
WORTH CONSIDERING STRONGLY!
We are "professional renters". Vacation renters in US and abroad. My wife and two children were very pleased with The Jewel. I know Rockport well having spent many summer weeks there in my childhood. The Jewel has a great location, off street parking, very nice neighbors in building and Deb allows small dogs. The unit is VERY clean and well constructed. AC is a bonus and is in the main room. To get AC in the bedroom must leave bedroom door open which may reduce privacy if staying with children. Access to bathroom is through the bedroom as well. Not a problem, just something to consider so that expectations are met and no surprises. We tried to book it again for a week in summer 2015 but already booked up. There is a reason for the early filling. Instead we are booking the upstairs Penthouse unit that Deb was gracious to show us on our day of departure last summer. Very impressive.
Deborah is awesome. I have never met a host as helpful, genuine and kind as she and I have met some. The process was transparent and smooth and all expectations were met or exceeded. The Jewel is a "slam dunk" rental in a great little town.
Wonderful One Bedroom.
Great one bedroom apartment in the center of town. Photos and description are accurate. Apartment is up to date, and well stocked with quality kitchen supplies. Walk out your door to the Rockport harbor.
My husband and I had a great vacation from beginning till end. The apartment is beautiful and spotless.
This apartment lives up to it's name. Everything you need is there and then some. Deborah takes pride in her property and treats her tenants great. She is one of the kindest people we have met along with our downstairs neighbors Hedy, Holly and Eddie. Thanks for a wonderful vacation.
I have lived in this beautifully furnished apt. since december 2012. It is lovely and clean and the furnishings are like new. The landlord is exceptionall gracious and reasonable.Parking for one car and so well situated that you can walk anywhere downtown..a short walk to Old Garden Beach as well.
I highly recommend this apartment. It is also very quiet and private.
