This peaceful location on a quiet lane just outside of Rockport's downtown offers an easy place from which to enjoy the best that this world-renowned sea-side art colony has to offer.
A five minute walk takes you directly into the heart of Rockport's downtown, full of art galleries, quaint shops, restaurants, and home of the Shalin Liu Performance Center, Rockport Chamber Music Festival, and Rockport Art Association. Boat tours leave regularly from two wharves, and you can rent sea kayaks, go deep sea-fishing, or climb the rocks at the end of Bearskin Neck and watch the sun set over the harbor and the famous Motif #1 fishing shack.
The same short walk brings you to Front Beach, with its fine swimming and scenic views of Rockport's coastline for adults, and gradual slope and tide pools that delight children. Along the way you will pass the lane leading to Millbrook Meadow, an oasis-like park with a pond, waterfall, babbling brook, and large lawn with swings and slide.
A short drive takes you to Halibut Point state park for ocean-view hiking, or to the neighboring seaport city of Gloucester. The train to Boston is only a five minute walk away.
Our house has a private yard with a garden, patio, fruit trees, and even a small playhouse for children. In addition to a queen, a full, two twin beds, and queen-size pull-out sofa, a crib is available. A sunny eat-in kitchen and family room provide plenty of space to relax. There is ample parking for two to four cars.
