About the Property

Comfortable, clean and convenient - 2 bedrooms and a bath

Light-filled, sparkling-clean cottage with everything you need for your Rockport getaway.

Old Garden - uncrowded, sandy, neighborhood beach with fabulous views is just steps away.

2 bedrooms, 1 bath, full kitchen, enclosed porch with vaulted ceiling, washer/dryer, 2-car driveway, and spacious backyard with trees and perennial beds.

Beachglass includes stylish decor, comfortable, functional furnishings, an uncluttered layout and good lighting.

You can expect to sleep peacefully in beds with creamy soft Egyptian cotton sheets, down comforters and down pillows.

The kitchen has matched dinnerware and glasses along with a variety of cookware, small appliances and gadgets. There is a new electric range with cooktop and oven.

The bathroom is super clean and comes furnished with fluffy resort-style bath and beach towels and a hair dryer.

The yard is perfect for playing, grilling or just relaxing with a cold drink. It is furnished with a Weber gas grill, glass-top dining set for 6, umbrella, Adirodack rocker, large teak cocktail table, and beach chairs. You can pick fresh herbs from the garden for cooking or mixing into those cold drinks.

The cottage includes cable television, wireless Internet and air conditioning. You will also find a vacuum cleaner, iron and ironing board and other household items.

The cottage is located just steps to Old Garden Beach and the Headlands, and is only a short walk to downtown Rockport and the Shalin Liu Center.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: North Shore natives and residents of Rockport.

Why the Owner Chose Rockport, MA, USA:
Historic charm, an art-filled, walkable downtown, charming shops, beaches and a picturesque harbor - what's not to love about Rockport? Add the Shalin Liu performance center and we find this town to be a perfect getaway.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
This cottage has everything you need and nothing that you don't. Although compact in size it is thoughtfully arranged with light-filled living spaces and amenities such as an on-premise laundry and an enclosed porch. We especially like the yard with its open, flat spaces and mature trees. You have many options to either enjoy sunny or shady spaces. There are even small touches like a clothesline hung between two trees for drying towels and swimsuits, a little platform near the house for rinsing sandy feet and a shed for storing beach gear. The location of this cottage is appealing. The neighborhood is very peaceful and a quick walk to the end of the street brings you to Old Garden Beach and the Headlands. Walk a little further and you're in town.
