Cozy Rocky Neck retreat

  • 5 of 5

Great little place! Fantastic patio in the back overlooking the harbor. Great ocean breezes. The owners live down stairs and are great hosts that give you plenty of privacy.

Summer breezes, great location, friendly owners

  • 5 of 5

We just completed our 3rd stay at Rocky Neck Retreat. It is a wonderful top floor apartment with an outstanding, huge deck overlooking the waters of the back bay. We spent lots of time enjoying the deck at all times of the day, often eating our meals out there. Half of the deck is covered, and half open. Brian and Karen, the owners, are very attentive to whatever you need, but also give you your privacy. There was a constant breeze thru the apartment and each room has its own ceiling fan. Even in the hottest part of the summer, we truly enjoyed the wonderful breezes and fresh cool air. We give this experience our highest scores, and we will be back for a 4th time before too long.

Charming apartment

  • 4 of 5

This is a charming apartment with some nice period features. It was very clean, and the views were lovely. There is a local shop selling delicious muffins and The Rudder restaurant was nearby and excellent. Cape Ann has pretty towns and a dramatic coastline and we had some good meals, sometimes with live music in Gloucester itself. We didn't rent a car but it would be a good idea if you don't like walking as it is a good half hour's walk into the centre of Gloucester. However the Cape Ann bus drivers were friendly and although the bus service is infrequent compared to Europe they will drop you off where you like. One of our highlights was a whale watching trip with 3 humpbacked whales around our boat! Great place for a relaxing break!
