Nice Quiet Setting

  • 5 of 5

This property worked out perfectly for me. I was visiting my brother

and his family who were staying in Rockport, so it was just a short

drive away. While not directly in town, it was nice to come back at the

end of the day to such a nice quiet setting. Everything was very comfortable,

and the unit came with everything I needed. It was very hot the weekend I

was there, so the air-conditioning was great and much appreciated! Jennifer

was a great host, and provided many personal touches to the apartment. I

can't wait to plan a return trip!

Location was great

  • 5 of 5

Just a short walk to the rocky shore, gorgeous sunsets! The owner was very nice, left bottled water and snacks for us and had all the fans and AC turned on for our arrival. Place would be perfect if there was a usable deck off the back of the house. As it was, there was a staircase that lead to the owner’s deck which we could use to get to the good-sized yard. We were able to bring our dog which was great. All the linens were provided as were beach chairs and an umbrella.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Griffin's getaway had all we needed for a long weekend away. Clean and comfortable well appointed space, snacks and croissants from our host, fully stocked kitchen, and we got to have our therapy dog with us which meant the world. I would definitely stay again and recommend to others. If I made any improvement suggestions it might be to consider a new couch, the current one was a bit uncomfortable and low on the floor. Thank you, and we will see you again : )

Clean, comfortable, great location.

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 nights and the place worked out perfectly for our family of 4. Clean with plenty of room. We grilled a couple nights in the back yard and ate out a couple nights. Very central to several great beaches. We went to Wingaersheek, Good Harbor, and Crane Beach we would recommend all three. It is also very close to the Halibut Point State Park which is a beautiful spot on the ocean with an old quarry and trails for walking. There is no beach to swim there, but the kids loved the trails and walking on all of the rocks down by the ocean. A short drive and you are in Rockport with lots of nice shops and restaurants. We enjoyed visiting the Bearskin Neck area. Even if you want to go into Boston it is less than an hour drive or you can hop on the commuter rail in Rockport. We drove into the Museum Of Science (about 50 min drive) and took a Duckboat Tour in Boston. Jen was very nice and we will hopefully be back to visit again something.

Great getaway for price and location!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Easy self check in and out. Stayed with our two kids. Beds are extremely comfortable and kitchen very well stocked. We didn't cook, but easily could have. Love the location, near Rockport and Gloucester. Walked to Lobster Pool (busy road not recommended with kids). Loved Lobsta Land (a few mins away near Gloucester) and Blue Lobster (Rockport). Simple, easy, homey rental. Thanks Jen!
