  • Clean, quiet, comfortable house!
    About three miles outside Rockport, this very private property is in an ideal location to enjoy Cape Ann. The kitchen is large and all appliances work well while the entire interior looks newly refurbished. The hostess was very friendly and helpful in suggesting sites to visit and good restaurants. Warm days and cool nights seem to be the norm. Having a cell phone is recommended for making dinner reservations, which are necessary in mid-summer. Highly recommended, particularly for adults, as the walk to the beach is a bit long for small kids.

  • We spent over a week at this delightful and pristine house within 5 mins walk of great beach. Ideal for family who like to mix beach days with other activities. Our hostess Elizabeth was wonderfully accommodating and provided beach chairs, towels, beach umbrella which makes hot days on the beach comfortable! In addition she has a wealth of knowledge on local area. All within easy distance of Rockport and Boston. Highly recommended.

  • Great holiday home near the beach!
    My family and I stayed in this charming house, a 10 minute walk from lovely Long Beach. The house is well-equipped, clean and comfortable. It’s location near to the beach, the delightful small town of Rockport and the State Park at Halibut Point mean there is something to interest everyone. Elizabeth, our hostess was helpful and very well-informed on the best places to visit and to eat. We spent a truly relaxing week at the house and would definitely recommend it to others.

  • Great Place, Great Spot!
    A wonderful place to use as the hub for a North Shore visit. Short walk to a couple of beaches, and a short drive to several others. Rockport’s shops are an easy drive, as are all that Gloucester has to offer. Place is tidy, updated, with great distant ocean view and, at night, wave sounds from the nearby beach.
