Car: Necessary

We are within walking distance of Folly Cove (spectacular sunsets), Halibut Point State Park, a beautiful place to walk, take in the views up the coastline to Maine, and bird watch, and all the rocky shoreline between Pigeon Cove and Rockport Center. Trails through the woods of Dogtown are just down the street and will take you through the Lanesville woods into Gloucester. Although close to both Rockport and Lanesville/Annisquam, we are enough off the beaten track to be peaceful and quiet.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We are a working middle-aged couple with 2 cats and no children who live upstairs from the apartment. We have lived on Cape Ann for most of our lives and wouldn't dream of moving.

Why the Owner Chose Rockport, MA, USA:
We bought 220 Granite to save it from being developed, so while we are landscaping some of our land, much of it will be left wild for the birds and animals (and us) to enjoy.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Big big sky. Great birds. Near everything you'd want to do but not right in the middle of it, so it's quiet and peaceful. A nice place to come home to.
