Recent Rockport reviews

  • This home is a 5 STAR property!

    "This home is furnished beautifully with lovely furnishings, fully equipped kitchen, comfortable bedrooms and the best views of the ocean from each porch (3) (2nd floor). I loved watching the lobster men go out each morning and return with their catch. Very quiet property. Nice walk from the house along the rocky coast (a little challenging on the rocks). Very clean and well maintained! Maureen recommended the walk in the nearby park, the walk along the coast and the Cape Ann Museum. I did all three and enjoyed them immensely. The best restaurants are in Gloucester, Essex, and Annisquam...only a short drive away!"

  • Glorious views, dream vacation

    "This was a perfect spot for our family vacation! With seven people in our party ranging in age from 6 to 66, we needed enough space for everyone to spread out and come together. And if you're going to stay in Rockport, you want to be close to town and have a beautiful ocean view. This house delivers on all counts. When you walk in, the wall-to-wall ocean view and open concept layout is really dazzling - everyone in our party gasped when they entered the foyer. While the photos on VRBO are great, they don't even do it justice. We caught several sunrises, and even the rainy days were majestic, watching the waves crash over the rocks below. With a sunroom, dining room, den, deck, and casual living room - plus five bedrooms - our family had plenty of options to enjoy some privacy, or relax and reconnect. The house is half a mile from town, so you avoid the crowds, but you can easily walk to coffee and homemade donuts at Brother's Brew (do not miss this awesome diner). You'll have phenomenal views of the ocean and pass two beaches along the way. The owners are fantastic - professional but warm and friendly. Before our stay, they responded quickly to emails and texts. When we checked in, they met us and showed us around the house, gave us a chance to ask questions, which was helpful (how does the fireplace work? where are the garbage cans? all those little details that make check-in easier). During the trip, we lost Comcast/wi-fi for awhile (not the owner's fault), and they offered to come out and replace the modem for us on the same day. After our stay, they even offered to send home a lost pair of pajama bottoms for our boy. I really appreciated their balance of being laid-back yet on top of things. We've rented other places in Rockport, and although this is a higher price point than most, it is truly worth the splurge. Thanks, Mark and Dawn, for a getaway we'll never forget."

  • Loved our stay

    "Stayed at the cottage for a few days with family, we totally enjoyed our stay. It was clean and quite. Only fall back was there was no wifi, which my daughter wasn't thrilled about, but the adults had no issue. Wish it was easier to contact owner so we could book again for next year."

  • Loved this cozy cottage

    "My husband, dog, and I spent three nights in this cozy, clean, and charming cottage. It's small and a bit worn, but we absolutely loved it. The location is fabulous--in a quiet area close to the water and within walking distance of a footpath towards town and Old Garden Beach. Laurie left a welcome basket with wine and a variety of snacks, and paid us a visit with her dog, Painter. If you are traveling with a dog, there's no place better to stay! We would love to stay here again."
