About Christine Toomey
I am a retired RN who has dabbled in Real Estate. My Husband is semi-retired, having the winters off and that is when we like to do some traveling of our own. We both grew up on the North Shore of Boston and spent many wonderful years visiting the beaches of Cape Ann.
Christine Toomey purchased this Apartment in 2000
Why Christine Toomey chose Rockport
We downsized from a colonial on 2 acres in the Newburyport area after our children were grown and now have 3 granddaughters that keep us very busy!
What makes this Apartment unique
We were fortunate to renovate and add on to a little cottage in a great part of Rockport. We like being just away from the hustle and bustle of the village, however close enough to park the car and walk most everyplace.

We stayed at the Carriage House for a wonderful girls getaway. Great accommodations in a quiet location centrally located. Easy walk to the beach or downtown. Christine was there to greet us and assist with any questions, directions or recommendations. Short drive to Gloucester or Cape Ann, we even spent a day in Salem- 25 min drive. The pictures do not do justice, grounds are beautiful, we much enjoyed sitting out in the evening. 1st class, loved our stay. Lynn S
Thank you very much for your glowing review of Windmere! We enjoyed meeting all of you and hope you will return and stay with us in the future, Christine
This is our second stay, we enjoyed it both times. Location is great, very quiet and private. Easy walk or drive into the heart of Rockport, shopping, restaurants and beaches. Christine has thought of everything in the cottage, very warm and welcoming. Feels like your visiting a friend, I highly recommend staying at Windmere cottage.
Wonderful property in a fabulous location!
My family of 4 (2 teens) had a great stay at the Windmere. Christine greeted us on arrival and was very helpful and gracious. The carriage house is very well appointed and although small, is very smartly laid out. We had everything we needed, all within easy walking to a great small beach and the shops of Bearskin Neck. Our only suggestion would be a line for wet towels....otherwise it was perfect!! We enjoyed day trips to Glouster (dont miss whale watching and Halibut Point State Park) and Boston. If you are looking for reasonable lodging in a sweet quiet town, this is it.
Thank you for your glowing review! So happy that you and your family enjoyed the Windmere Carriage House and Rockport. I do have a clothesline behind the outdoor shower and beach gear shed, but I did not think to tell the guests. Thanks for mentioning it and I will be sure to include it in my "Guest Book" in the future. Hope to have you stay with us again, Christine
Beautiful vacation spot near the sea
The perfect get away, within walking distance of shopping and dining opportunities, yet tucked away on a quiet residential street. The beach is a two minute walk. Delightful
Thanks for your nice review of Windmere Carriage House! We enjoyed having you again this year! Hope to see you next summer, Christine
Fell in love with Rockport!
We stayed two weeks at Carriage House and hated to leave. Great accommodations in a quiet location with the ocean walk as well as easy walk to town. We were so happy to come "home" after trips into Boston and other day excursions! The Carriage house is very clean and bright and had everything we needed.
Colleen and family thanks for your glowing review of Windmere Carriage House! Hope you can come back to stay with us again. We are also planning our trip to your coast in the near future, Christine
The place was clean and very well stocked, with a great location. Chris was very helpful with directions and places to eat all with in walking distance.
Linda and group, thanks for your nice review of Windmere Carriage House! Hope you you come back again in the future, Christine
