About Darlene Trumbour
We have owned this property since 1999 when our twin daughters were just months old. My husband is an architect and a teacher at Wentworth Institute of Technology and I teach health at Rockport Elementary School. Our main house is on the property as well and I enjoy working in the gardens during the summer months.
Darlene Trumbour purchased this House in 1999

Really cute cottage!
We had a wonderful stay at the cottage! It is ideally located within an easy walk to town and a small beach. Darlene was very attentive and provided all we needed for a great stay. We plan on a return visit next year.
So glad you enjoyed your stay!
See you next year!
extremely comfortable stay
We loved our stay in this beautiful architect (owner) designed cottage with every detail just perfect. Situated in a niche near the road to Rockport schools next to one of the largest oaks on earth (six foot diameter), the windows were oriented to nature, birds were always present, and the feeling was more like being in the peaceful woods--although the village is only a mile away. Darlene was generous in many ways to make our stay very comfortable.
Awesome place and location!
Fantastic place to stay! Thank you!!!
Thanks so much William. It was nice meeting you and we're glad the cottage worked well for you. Hopefully we will see you in the fall.
Darlene and Rob
We rented this cottage for the month of December to be near family for the holidays. we enjoyed our winter experience in Rockport and the cottage met our needs. Most importantly, it was cozy comfy on these frigid New England days. Interesting in -floor heating, great insulation. The place came fully supplied and Darlene was very responsive and pleasant as a host.
Rockport Retreat - Relaxation at it's best!
Loved staying here! Cottage was clean, private and fully equipped with everything we needed. Furthermore, it was located in walking distance to town, tea room and beautiful beaches.
Darlene was the perfect hostess. We will definitely be back!
Lovely cottage with convenient location
I had a wonderful stay at this cottage. Darlene was a lovely host. Will definitely be back. Clean, convenient and well situated. This will definitely be my choice next year on my return visit to my home Gloucester and Rockport.
Thank you Perry. It was lovely meeting you. Safe travels and hope to see you next year.
