About Jonathan H.
We are Jon and Ellie and we welcome you to be our guests at The James Gott Homestead. I was born and raised on the North Shore while Ellie was raised in coastal Maine. We have lived and traveled throughout the United States but we have always been drawn back to the beautiful town of Rockport MA.
Jonathan H. purchased this Barn in 2015
Why Jonathan H. chose Rockport
After spending almost two years searching for the right property we were shown the James Gott Homestead in the dead of winter and we fell in love. Drawing on the experiences we had renting vacation homes for our family over the years we tried to design the "best " summer vacation rental. We have renovated two of the four units into beautiful, luxury comfortable family vacation rentals. Two different buildings each with its own unique charm and character but each very Rockport.
What makes this Barn unique
This is a very unique home. We are located right downtown on the 4th of July parade route yet, we have a beautiful flower filled back yard that is a very peaceful and tranquil oasis. This unit has two off street parking spaces. We have two beautiful sandy beaches less than a half mile stroll from your back door, we provide a cart for beach chairs coolers and other beach necessities. There is also a parking pass for Long Beach and Cape Hedges Beach.

Beautiful furnishings, clean house, modern amenities, lots of outdoor functional space, comfortable beds. The location was great to walk to nearby attractions. We loved this cottage and the location!
Couldn't Have Asked For Anything More
I have to say everything about our experience renting this house was wonderful. From the beginning Jonathan answered all communication within a day at most. When we asked him very close to our rental date if by any chance we could check in early or checkout late, he responded that there were people arriving Sunday so we couldn't check out later, but we could check in early. He allowed us to do that with no additional charge which was wonderful and very generous. The house was fantastic. It was very clean and had lots of character. In addition, in the house, there was everything you could possibly need. This included coffee, sugar, tea, salt and pepper etc. Even though we were there in September and did not use the beaches, he also had everything you would want for the beach: umbrella, chairs, cooler, ice packs etc etc. There also was a garden right outside the door with tomatoes and spices which we were invited to use. The house is located at a perfect spot, a couple of blocks from Bearskin Neck. Bearskin Neck was fun for shopping and exploring. There were also some great restaurants in walkable distance. I could go on and on. I really can not say enough about how great our experience was renting this house and dealing with Jonathan. One more thing, I was notified the day after we left that my security deposit had been refunded. At smoother rentals, I have had to wait days. The only thing I would ask to be different: it would be nice to have check in time a little earlier and checkout time a little later. But it's hard to complain about that considering we were allowed to check in so early. We also would have liked champagne glasses, but really everything was perfect.
Lovely vacation rental
We had a very pleasant stay over Labor Day weekend at this very nice home. Lovely garden and neighborhood and a very nice short walk to shops and restaurants. The home was very clean with everything you could possibly need . Our family enjoyed our stay very much.
Great space, and wonderful owners!
The carriage house is a great space for families to gather, and John and Ellie are terrific owners. We had an issue with the in-house laundry and they jumped on repairs immediately. Being an older structure, this rental is perhaps best for people who know each other well -- you can hear everything between floors -- and the living/dining/kitchen on the first floor are a bit tight for a group especially during bad weather when you can't access the beautiful back yard. Otherwise, super clean, well-equipped, walking distance to everything and the best owners ever make this an excellent choice!
Everything about this property and experience was perfect. The house fit a family of 6 (with three teenagers!) easily and comfortably. The house was impeccable and had everything that we could want. There was one little glitch and it was met with rapid correction and immediate communication. The house is walk able to town which made meals easy. Front beach is close, but we found we loved the quick drive to Long Beach more. We so loved our experience at this house and this town. We will be back!!
Our luxury property is located just off the downtown area . The fourth of July parade goes by the front of our house.Rockport has two beautiful sandy beaches right downtown both are an easy walk from our rental .
