About Joan Kelley
Been living in the main house for more than 20 years and just decided to rent my little piece of heaven next door for the first time this year. Looking for quiet respectful people who would like to spend some quality time at the beach.
Joan Kelley purchased this Studio in 1930
Why Joan Kelley chose Rockport
OCEAN FRONT!!! You can't get any closer to the beach than you are at this property. Steps down to the beach or stay in and just enjoy the views and sounds of the ocean and its tides. Cottage has been restored to much of what it was while updated to meet today's needs. While at the same time you are at the very edge of the downtown area and across the street from a great little restaurant which great breakfast, snacks and fish.
What makes this Studio unique
Water front! Beach front....not a better location in town.

My wife Karen and I were celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary and wanted a relaxing, romantic and quiet getaway where we could spend time with each other after a busy summer of watching our grandchildren which were off from school. The studio cottage is right on the ocean at Front Beach. Even though previous reviews mention that it small, there is plenty of room for 2 people. Joan keeps the yard immaculate with plenty of chairs, lounge chairs and the grass as green as emeralds. The sounds of the water and waves crashing is soothing and awesome at the same time. The ocean tide comes in 4 times a day and it was fun to watch the ocean recede from 100 yards away to coming right up next to the cottage. We caught nice weather for the 3rd week of September and enjoyed walking on Main Street and Bearskin neck road where all the shops and restaurants are. We ate breakfast at Nate’s which is just across the street from the cottage. Joan is both very accommodating and a pleasure to speak with. She was very helpful in letting us know where to go and explore around Rockport and Gloucester.
We were only able to spend 3 nights as it was booked and we went to Gloucester from Joan’s cottage for the rest of our vacation. Next time we will try and spend the whole week as we found Joan’s studio cottage a special place as we love being by the ocean. We can’t wait to go back.
Great place great people.....
Area has all we wanted in a vacation rental
Lovely cottage in perfect location!
This clean, bright studio cottage is right on Front Beach in Rockport; when you sit on the couch you feel as though you are on a boat, that's how close you are to the water. We come to Rockport for an anniversary weekend every fall, and this place perfectly met our needs. The best breakfast spot in town (Nate's) is right across the street, and we walked to Shalin Lu for a concert and to Bearskin Neck for shopping and a marvelous seafood dinner a My Place by the Sea, although there is a private parking space in front of the cottage, which is great on a busy weekend in town. Joan is welcoming and friendly and, as a seasoned host, has stocked the cottage with many small touches that make the space really efficient. It was really nice to combine all these conveniences with the privacy of our own space; it's a perfect spot to which we will return.
Great Host and better view
Perfect for a couple. Location ideal.
A Fantastic Time, A Fantastic Place
We always love coming to Rockport. This is our third year coming here and it gets better every time. The cottage is lovely and it is in the perfect location. We love relaxing on the beach and listening to the waves at night. Joan is an excellent host and we will continue to stay here year after year.
