Thank you so much for your hospitality and for sharing your little garden hideaway! Our time here was peaceful and precious…and we enjoyed the woods, the water, the trees and the even the rain. It was absolutely lovely

Just as described

  • 5 of 5

This little cottage was perfect. We loved the breezes at night, and spent a very nice afternoon on the deck drinking iced tea in the sunshine. And all the birds! this place was such a retreat. Other than the birds, the neighborhood was very quiet. Fireflies at night, a pretty garden to look at, a nice cemetery just one block away, Mary & Herb were right there for questions, we will definitely stay here again.

We had a lovely time near the ocean

  • 5 of 5

This little cottage was our cozy home base for a few days of R&R near the ocean. The owners were very thoughtful in outfitting the cottage, and were available if we had a question. We recommend getting out to the beach to see a sunrise and taking advantage of the fresh local seafood. Thank you for a wonderful time away!

Perfect Tiny House in the Best Place on Earth

  • 5 of 5

We love Gloucester and we love this little house. Clean, lovely, light filled, and a two minute walk to Folly Cove. Private little deck for morning coffee or evening cocktails. Owners live on property and you can tell it was designed with love.

Great Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here back in early June and it was a wonderful experience! The cottage was very cozy and we loved the ladder leading up to the loft! There was plenty to do in the local area and the ocean (as well as a very nice seaside park!) is just minutes away. The cottage is not far from the last stop for one of the commuter trains going into Boston and Salem. It was very easy going into the city! The area was very charming and there were plenty of local restaurants nearby. Would very much stay again next time we are up in the area!

The best we could have asked for

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful cottage was a dream come true. A great visit to beautiful Rockport and surrounding areas, very comfortable, cozy, rustic but spotless, and so much character! I almost don't want to tell people about it because I want to make sure it's available when I book again. We were a family of 4 and our dog and it was perfect!!!! Our kids can't wait to come back and we went scuba diving walking distance away! The family renting their cottage were so kind too. A really great place that we all highly recommend!
