This charming summer rental cottage features gorgeous water views from two large second story decks. Beautifully landscaped with a perennial garden, this vacation home is located in the coveted "south end" of Rockport, about 1.5 miles from the village. The Shalin Liu Performance Center and Old Garden Beach are in one direction, and Pebble Beach and Cape Hedge Beach lie in the other direction. Located in an area famous for its beautiful and serene waterfront walks, the house is well situated to enjoy peace and quiet, or find more active fun at the beach or in town.

Enter into the living room, in the original part of the house with beautifully aged wood paneling and a door to the sizable screened in porch at one end. The centrally-located kitchen is original to the house, with added modern appliances. Down the hall is a full bath with a clawfoot tub (with shower) and just beyond is a double bedroom, with access to the screened porch. On the other side of the kitchen is the new addition to the house, which contains a bright and airy family room.

The second floor is home to two bedrooms (one with twins and one with a single) in the original part of the house, as well as a full bath with a tub. The newer section of the second floor houses the queen master bedroom with its vaulted ceilings and ensuite bath with a tub and shower. Off of the master is the first large deck, which faces toward the village and offers ocean views. This deck can also be accessed through the single bedroom. Through the twin bedroom is the door to another large deck which has ocean views to the east and south and include views of the twin lighthouses on Thacher Island.

"Spacious and comfortable, views of the ocean
Loved the location of this roomy rental. We could see the ocean from both upstairs decks and it was a short walk to "Flat Rocks", a breathtaking spot right on the ocean. Our favorite part of the house was the screened in porch which allowed us to stay "outside" into the evening without bugs. The kitchen was quite small and didn't have alot of counterspace; however, the house was well stocked. Atlantic Vacation Home staff were very helpful and responsive to the few concerns we had and addressed them right away. The outdoor furniture needed to be replaced, but the hammock was a delight. We will definitely return!"

"Lovely Cape Ann
A lovely house in neach-beach pretty location. We had a technical problem in the house, the hot water heater gave up, but the management company did all it could to have the heater fixed, on a weekend of course. Fortunately the weather was hot, cold showers were thus survivable. The owners gave us a discount for the "cold water weekend" - everybody was happy in the end. "

"Perfect in every way!
Property was exactly as described (even better in that extra air mattress in family room allowed eldest college age son to have his own room and privacy and not have to share with younger brother. We absolutely LOVED the house, location, history of original cottage, etc. Screens need to be repaired on beautiful screen porch but didn't present too much of a problem. Kids loved the yard, EASY access to rocks/water view. Kitchen is adequate but we didn't expect fancy (no garbage disposal but we dealt with it). Had a fabulous time and would love to return. We ended up with a perfect week for weather - not too hot so no a.c. was not a problem. Actually got chilly last 2 days. Rental management was responsive. If had to have any complaint it would be that downstairs toilet/tub is very tight for space but worked for kids. A large adult would have a problem. Again we were not expecting luxury-just right for us. "

"Nice Getaway Location!
Great location with ocean views from all decks, beautiful yard, great for family cookout or picnic! Very quiet, peaceful location. Home could have been better stocked with toilet paper, hand soap, paper towels, etc but close drive to the grocery store for these and other items. overall a lovely stay, would stay again!"
