Why Louise chose Rockport
A sweet bungalow tucked away on a quaint lane with its own parking spot just steps from the old mill pond and the beach, this little cottage has all the right elements for an enjoyable Rockport stay. Don't leave your pet at home. He or she is welcome!

Thoughtful hosts and comfortable, relatively central location.
Louise and her husband were very thoughtful in how they prepared the home for my stay and promptly responded to every phone and text communication. I thoroughly enjoyed the clean, cozy, comfortable studio and that anything I needed, from an extra blanket to umbrella to pizza cutter was easy to find. There are modern details that also made everything easier, like the super quiet a/c and easy to use window blinds. The airbed is amazingly comfortable! While there are many cottages in the area, the trees and greenery helped me feel like I had good privacy in the bathroom and kitchen, and the convenience of walking the dog easily into town, to the beach or to the pond helped me easily change from quiet to lively or scenic settings. The only thing to keep in mind for larger/taller people is that the shower is a bit small. I recommend the cottage for anyone looking for a get away for one, with a dog, or with a special someone.
Hi Michelle, We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay at The Sound House. It is always wonderful to know that our guests have had a restful time and have recharged their batteries. Thank you for your thoughtful comments as it is our mission to make our cottages comfortable and pleasant to guests whether traveling alone or with their beloved pet. Thank you too for pointing out the shower though the space available only gave us that one size option. We hope that if your travel/vacation plans call for another visit to Rockport that you will stay with us again. With the revitalization of the beautiful pond and meadow steps away from the cottage, we feel that the Sound House, Cottage on the Pond and Cottage on the Lane offer a perfect vacation venue. All the best, Karl and Louise
The cottage was great! The bed had an air mattress which was so comfortable. Very clean and excellent location! The patio had a beautiful view of the ocean and a quick walk to Front Beach. Downtown was only about a 5 minute walk. I can’t wait to return!
We enjoyed having you stay at The Sound House with your sweet rag doll cat “Marie”. Thank you for leaving the cottage so tidy and invite you to spend your vacation with us when you need another Rockport fix.
With warm regards,
Karl and Louise
We had a fantastic time here...stayed in Rockport while in Gloucester for a month on business. Small space but perfectly appointed- charming is an understatement. The view of the harbor from the front window is incredible. The town is adorable. Lots of fun shops and art galleries in walking distance. If you are looking for a peaceful respite, or a shabby-chic romantic getaway, you won't be disappointed! We left feeling completely recharged.
Fabulous, charming cottage
I had a great summer experience at the "Sound House". The location was ideal and offered pretty ocean views from the front and patio. It was equipped with everything I needed for my stay. Louise is a wonderful host and she provided a great welcome preparation for me. I greatly enjoyed my stay.
