The secondary living room has a sunken media area with a big screen TV for movie buffs. Take a step up out of the media room to the sitting and computer area. There is an eat-in area in the fully equipped kitchen, as well as a separate dining-room nook. We've got covered parking for one and multiple driveways for all your friends and family to safely park.

There is a private backyard and deck area adorned with large beautiful oak trees great for a nap on the hammock or a cookout with friends and family. Feel free to park your boat or RV in the backyard; we got the hook up! And check out our storage area with boogie boards, fishing rods, and croquet. We also have an out door shower and mister fan on the deck for summertime cool-off.

If you're in the mood for a scenic stroll or for some great food a couple block's walking distance from Sweet Summertime, is the Fulton Harbor. With a variety of local restaurants, bird watching avenues, and fishing piers. Just up the road is Downtown Rockport. Downtown Rockport boasts wonderful art studios and shops right off the Rockport ski basin. About 2 miles from Sweet Summertime is the Rockport Beach.
