Description

This delightful summer vacation rental cottage, overlooking broad stretches of the Atlantic Ocean and Rockport's Hoop Pole Cove, is a perfect retreat for anyone looking to experience the best of New England. The wraparound porch and expansive yard allow you to fully enjoy Cape Ann's natural beauty.

After walking up a few outside steps, the house is contained on one level. The renovated kitchen is complete with granite counters and all the major appliances you need, including a washer and dryer. The rest of the cottage also underwent a complete renovation a few years ago, resulting in a home with antique charm and modern comfort.

The home has stylish modern upgrades, such as a custom tile bath with soaking tub and a separate shower as well as vintage elements including a stone fireplace made from local popples. Popples are stones that the ocean has rolled to an egg shape and they are commonly found in the Cape Ann area. The floors are hardwood throughout the home. Two nicely-sized bedrooms with free standing A/C units, one containing two twin beds and the other housing a regal queen bed, complete the floor plan.

Located in a serene neighborhood, North Seas cottage is perfect for those lazy summer mornings, sleeping in before venturing out on a quiet walk to the sea. It is also easy to get to the beaches, local shops, and exquisite restaurants for which Cape Ann is famous. Just a short walk (about 50 yards) down the street is a foot path to Hoop Pole Cove. Explore the rocky shore or dip your toes into the calm waters of the cove.

The lane alongside North Seas can accommodate parking for two to three vehicles. Note that cell phone reception may or may not reliably work for some service providers, so the cottage has a landline if you need it.

We've stayed at the white cottage many times even before it was a rental. We knew the previous owner and the current owners. The location is great and our week was good but noisy. We wished we had known about the construction at the corner of the street. Dump trucks were constantly going up and down the street right in front of the cottage all day starting at 7:30 in the morning Monday through Thursday of that week.
Manager response on 2017-08-29 - Response from AVH Realty Inc
We are so sorry that you were disturbed by the construction on Pointe de Chene. We didn't realize it would affect North Seas nor that the construction trucks would travel on that tiny lane or even fit on it for that matter. Please accept our apologies for the noise.

Awesome experience at the North Seas Cottage

We were familiar with the cottage from 20 years ago when our kids were young and saw it for rent, so we couldn't pass it up. We had a long weekend there, full of memories and great weather.

My family and I (my husband, our 10 and 11 year old boys and our dog, Bleu) stayed at the North Seas Cottage for 9 days. From the first moment we saw the view we knew we loved it. Every room was homey and comfy and full of wonderful little finds to enjoy. I loved using any manner of dishes (I haven't taken my own relish dish out in years...) to serve dinner - they really have everything. We had two minor issues, a leak from an a/c unit and a broken shower curtain, but both were resolved quickly with the management team. We would definitely consider coming back next year!
Manager response on 2014-07-17 - Response from AVH Realty Inc
We're glad that you had such a great time at North Seas and that it had everything you needed to fully enjoy your vacation! As for the AC and shower curtain, we work very hard to provide our guests with the best possible vacation experiences, and we're glad that we were able to remedy your concerns in a timely manner We hope you do decide to return to Cape Ann next year, and we wish you and your family a wonderful rest of the year!

My wife and two young girls (ages 6 and 4) generally enjoyed our stay here. These were several minor annoyances (the TV did not work and the lights did not work in one of the bedrooms when we arrived and there were no hooks for towels and limited space to put things down in the bathroom) but we were able to find the circuit breakers the next morning for the bedroom lights and the rental agent was very helpful in having the TV fixed promptly). One suggestion is to have a brief explanation of the operation of the TV and other equipment in the house for convenience and well as some information on where one could go for groceries. We did not spend much time in the place itself (breakfast two of four mornings and no lunches or dinners), but found the area a pleasant one when we were there. The accompanying picture accurately captures the most attractive view from the place. The area was also quiet and relaxing and we found the beds very comfortable.

Yes, what a Sweet Spot! The cottage was clean and wonderful, perfect for our stay. The view of the trees and the ocean beyond was like being in a tree house, peaceful and delightful. And, we were able to bring our mini doxie along with us and he loved it too! I would highly recommend this property for a great place to get away from all the hustly and bustle.

This is a great property for a small family. We came w our boys ages 10 & 12. Loved the proximity to the shore - great fishing so close by. Lovely quiet neighborhood. Great for dog walking & riding bikes. Nice new kitchen as well.
Close to rockport center as well.

We would highly recommend this cottage for anyone who would like to experience the beauty of Cape Ann. As a family of four, we were extremely comfortable in this top rate property. Brand new kitchen and bath, wonderful beds with high quality linens, a mixture of modern furniture and amenities and lovely antiques and artwork made this a truly special place. Every morning we were able to have our coffee out on the deck (a portion of which is covered) and view the small cove. There are great walking paths and down to the rocks. There were extra lines and blankets for cold nights and plenty of other extras like soap, paper towel, etc. I loved the claw foot tub and the walk-in shower - many towels were provided!

Absolutely fabulous!!!! The cottage was delightful! It was so open and airy, PEACEFUL and relaxing! Several of the windows faced the water which lent to beautiful breezes and a gorgeous view! The decor is cozy and happy, with pretty bedrooms, spacious bathroom and a big kitchen!! The cottage came with every ammenity you would ever want or need! In just 5 minutes you were in beautiful, quaint, downtown Rockport with all its fabulous shopping and great restaurants! Also only 5 mins away was a grocery store, train station (if interested in seeing Boston) and beaches!! What more could you ask for!! Fantastic find and we will be back next year for sure!!!
