Overview

About the property

6 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, Sleeps 10

This inviting family vacation home has bountiful space and is located in the highly desirable area of "The Avenues" at the northern end of Rockport. Boasting 6 bedrooms, 3.5 baths and the ability to comfortably sleep 10 people, this is a house for the extended family to enjoy. This area of Rockport is perfect for biking, walking and enjoying the omnipresent ocean views.

The oversized wraparound porch (part of which is screened in) offers plenty of places for relaxing and enjoying the gentle ocean breezes. Inside, the large eat-in kitchen has a dishwasher and microwave as well as washer/dryer. Mon Altre has two sitting rooms, providing multiple gathering spaces for friends and family. One the sitting rooms has peekaboo water views and the other contains a fireplace and TV. Just off the living areas is the dining room, with plenty of room for everyone.

Also on the main floor are the queen master suite with full bath, a single bedroom and another half bath. There are four additional bedrooms on the second level. There is a queen bedroom, another queen bedroom with additional full-sized futon, a bedroom with two twin beds, and one that contains both a double and a single bed. There are also two full bathrooms on the second floor.

Just across the quiet avenue is a short footpath that leads to the amazing Atlantic Path, which meanders for miles over the rocks alongside the ocean. Hardy swimmers can swim and kayak off these rocks, although everyone will enjoy some of the most beautiful views on the east coast. Ride or walk about one mile in either direction to visit the picturesque working harbor at Pigeon Cove or the majestic natural beauty of Halibut Point State Park. Only slightly further (2-3 miles) brings you to the sleepy village of Lanesville or into downtown Rockport, with its family-friendly beaches and many shops, restaurants, galleries, and a world-class performing arts center.

Reviewer Comments:

Mon Altre Cove House was the perfect location for our family of nine--six adults, two girls ages 10 and 3, and one boy age 6. The main floor bedroom and en suite bathroom were ideal for my wife and me. Our daughter and her husband from London had a bedroom on the second floor with an adjacent private bath. Our son, his wife, and their three children from San Antonio, TX had two bedrooms joined by a bathroom also on the second floor. The property was exactly as described on the AVH website and was an important factor in choosing Mon Altre Cove House. Although the house was built in 1884, it was clean and well maintained with updated bathrooms and kitchen. The house with some vintage furnishings, décor, and photos felt like a step back in time in a good way. We had a "malfunction" with the clothes washer but the folks at AHV even offered to pick up and do our laundry while waiting for installation of a new washer. Now that is what I call outstanding customer service! The house is well located for activities in other towns nearby. Our grandchildren enjoyed Front Beach in Rockport and Wingaersheek Beach in Gloucester. They also enjoyed picking berries and seeing farm animals at Russell Orchards Farm in Ipswich. Our son-in-law ran in a 10 mile race and our daughter ran a 5K at the Yankee Homecoming in Newburyport. We enjoyed shopping at Bearskin Neck in Rockport and of course had to take a photo of Motif 1. Our favorite restaurants were Blue Lobster Grille and 7th Wave in Rockport and the Seaport Grille in Gloucester. The house, the location, the activities, the helpful people of AVH, the shopping, and the great seafood all combined to make our 50th Wedding Anniversary family vacation a memorable occasion. I would strongly recommend AVH and the Mon Altre Cove House to others and look forward to a return visit in the near future.

Reviewer Comments:

Three generations of family enjoyed this spacious house which was more a well loved home than a vacated vacation rental.The internet connection needed to be reset half-way through our visit, but when reported it was reconnected within a few hours.Multiple porches provided alternative dining spots all day. Bathrooms had terrific characters from the most elegant and modern to well appointed period representations. We hope to return often. We enjoyed Roy Moore seafood often, both restaurant and live lobsters. The last day the dishwasher and microwave were out of order, I suspect a faulty kitchen fuse. This was reported before leaving. We had a great visit due to house character and location.

This was an extended family vacation and a great time had by all. The kids loved all the beaches in the area, and going across the street to explore the rocks.
