The cottage is very charming, and the views are fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay, so much so that we are working on dates to stay at #15 next year. Adorable cottage. The decor is comfortable and casual but with very thoughtful touches: many pillows and warm quilts; fluffy towels and lots of them; the sofa faced Thacher's Island--what a way to start the day: perched on the sofa in my PJs with a cup of coffee and a great view. We loved the kitchen garden and used some of the owner's herbs in our home-cooked meals. Also, there is a super collection of books. I read two during my stay. As we are walkers, the location couldn't have been more perfect: quiet, no traffic and spectacular scenery. #15 had everything to make our stay a truly memorable one.

Very nice cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is lovely. Has all the amenities you could need. Owner, Susan, is very responsive to any questions. The view from the table outside is beautiful and we were lucky enough to be there during a full moon to see the reflection off the water.

Cute Cottage With Wonderful Views

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this cute little cottage. It was very clean and comfortable with thoughtful extras for beach trips such as a cooler, beach chairs, beach towels, parking pass and even a bicycle. The ocean/lighthouse view was wonderful! The corner lot added some privacy for grilling and enjoying the outdoor space. We liked the location since it was very close to downtown Rockport and a short drive into Gloucester. Sue was very prompt and attentive with communication and offered helpful and informative tips on things to do, places to eat, etc. Overall, a lovely stay and great value.

Perfect little vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

Lovely little cottage with great view of Thatcher's Island right through the window. Cottage was clean and cozy and had everything we needed for our stay. Great yard which I would have loved to enjoy more, but we went during a chilly snap! :) Nice walk to the rocky cove, and easy drive to shops and Rockport. Owner is very prompt with replies and extremely nice to deal with. Loved our time here and definitely hope to come back next year!

Perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely perfect - very very low-key, but everything you needed - small, quaint, adorable. Very clean and the location was great- I rented a kayak for two days and just left it on the beach nearby - went out in the ocean to Milk and Thames Islands, which was absolutely beautiful.
