Superb waterfront location, out on a bit of a point. Very nice, spacious house, with most areas updated except the kitchen which we knew going in. Would stay here again.

We absolutely loved our extended stay at Pigeon Cove! The house is lovely and the views are magnificent. This house has a new upstairs addition with air conditioned 3 bedrooms and 3 baths. The addition is spacious and beautiful. The original part of the house is in great shape. There is one bedroom and bath downstairs along with 2 family rooms, the kitchen and dining area. We used the breakfast porch every morning and the grill and patio every evening. The kitchen is not renovated and there is not a lot of counter space. But, it is well stocked and we were able to make it work just fine. We rented Pigeon Cove in August of 2016- this has to have been one of the HOTTEST seasons on record with many of our days in the 90's. We were brought a window unit for the downstairs bedroom which made the sleeping much more comfortable. I'm not sure anyone could have slept in that room without it. I understand that Rockport generally doesn't need A/C because of the ocean breezes, but during this week, even the breezes were hot. So, we were very thankful for the A/C. This house has amazing sunrises and views of the boats coming and going from Pigeon Cove. We enjoyed daily walks to town, the rocky coastline and Halibut Point State Park. We did 2 lobster take out meals from Roy Moore's, we got to a show at Shalin Liu and we chartered two fishing trips. The staff at Atlantic Vacation Homes was great. We are definitely planning a trip back!

My 90 year old mother, my brother and his wife, and my husband and I have now enjoyed a week at Pigeon Cove in the middle of winter! We love the house, the rocks and waves and even the "pond". We enjoy cooking special meals and doing jigsaw puzzles, reading and handcrafts. It's a delightful getaway from home, and quality time with mom. We'll be back.

We enjoyed Pigeon Cove so much with our family, everything we needed coming from over seas. The weather was perfect, with picture perfect views, this home is beautiful inside and out. The decorator was what we enjoy living with. We were blessed to be able to rent this home. Customer service leading up to arrival was great. The front door lock would not lock when we left but I did leave two messages for office. So that might need to be changed out. I knew cleaning service would be coming in. We would recommend this property to family and friends. We enjoyed Sugar Mag's, Nate's, 2 Sister's, Connolly's Fish Market,all the shops in Rockport and Gloucester. Wow a lot to do and great walking.

My 89 year-old mom has now rented Pigeon Cove for a week's time out with her kids and their spouses each of the past two winters. It is perfect! We were lucky with the weather -- January last year, calm and sunny but cold. February this year -- a blustery, snowy week! We were cozy inside and loved watching the waves crashing against the rocks outside. The four bedrooms and four bathrooms are perfect for mom and three couples. Because we a knew a storm was expected, we brought all our own food and didn't need to go out -- though of course, one trip out for lobster was a must! The folks at Atlantic Vacation Homes are wonderful too. They follow up and make sure everything is comfortable. We brought our own window-washing equipment so we could keep the view even when the salt spray coated the windows during the storm. We'll be back!

The house is tastefully decorated and is a very comfortable place to spend time. It has plenty of room for everyone to have their own space. It had everything we needed and the rental agent provided any extra services we requested. I highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a special place to vacation.

We had a family vacation -- 88 year old mom, two couples. It was the end of January and the weather was cold, but mostly sunny. The Pigeon Cove lobstermen provided entertainment for the men in the group and the seabirds provided constant diversion for all of us. We loved being right on the rocks. We had hoped for wind and waves, but even without big waves, the water was wonderful. The sunrises were the perfect way to start the day -- especially from the masterbedroom! We had to switch mid-week so each couple could have a couple mornings waking up in that fantastic setting! Overall we loved it and would like very much to visit again.

We had a wonderful stay at the Pigeon Cove house from mid December, 2013 to mid January, 2014. The setting is spectacular, especially in a nor'easter! While we had a few good storms, which were very exciting, we also had amazing sunrises, moonrises, and beautiful, calm seas. This house is perfect for watching the activities of the lobstering boats in Pigeon Cove. The house itself is lovely, with plenty of room for a family of 6, but not overly huge for 2. The views from the master bedroom can't be beat. We enjoyed our stay very much and definitely recommend this house.

This is the second time we have stayed at Pigeon Cove this season! The house is bright and cheery with huge windows overlooking the ocean. We love watching the boats going by and sitting on the patio on a warm, sunny day is spectacular! The 3 bedrooms upstairs are gorgeous, particularly the MB with it's unbelievable views. After a few days stay it's hard to face returning to real life ;)

The house is situated on top of a knoll above the Atlantic. The windows from the house allowed us to watch the lobster boats go in and out of the cove. In fact the views from the house were so stunning, many of us decided to stay put and revel in nature's glory rather than go touring all the time. The first 2 days were spent taking photos on the front lawn- what a serene background. There was a problem, however with 2 out of the four beds provided being below acceptable expectations. The house description did mention there being one futon, so we expected the consequences of that. However, the bed in the medium sized room upstairs was so hard and so squeaky loud it was comical, however painful to our backs. I have to mention the lack of screens on our bedroom windows, because when the weather got a bit warm, our room became hot. We opened our windows to save on air conditioning, however had to suffer from the insects which joined us. We met the owner and caretaker on the first day we arrived,and both were lovely and accomidating. The caretaker let us know he was a lobsterman, and we ordered a dozen succulent beauties from him and had a wonderful and memorable lobster bake on the side patio.
This place was well worth the price because of its spectacular views and amazing setting. Overall, it was a jewel with only a few things to work out.

This place is magical: far more exciting and satisfying than you could imagine. The house is spectacular (maybe the best view on Cape Ann) and sits facing the ocean on a totally quiet cul de sac. Rockport, Gloucester, Dogtown Common provide uncountable points of interest from art to shopping to hiking to dining to ocean kayaking. This Pigeon Cove house (modest from the outside; breath-taking inside) will make going back to your "real world" difficult.

another wonderful stay in rockport!

Beautiful in every respect. Right on the ocean & charming view of harbor. Lovely, well-equiped house, ten minute walk from central Rockport. Truly the best!

This property offers super views of the Atlantic and the lobstermen at work near Pigeon Cove. Spacious and quiet; everything worked (TV, WiFi, binoculars, kitchen appliances, plumbing, etc.). Great location relative to Rockport and other beaches, attractions, etc. Living room sofas could be improved for comfort, but who spends time there anyway? Great outdoor patio, but gas grill could use an overhaul (it did work, however). All in all, very comfortable and great location. We would definitely go back again to this property.

Rockport is a wonderful place. The Atlantic staff was cheerful and helpful, and it's rental system makes the process easy. The Piegon Cove house was great in every way. All this made for a great vacation.

A wonderful property with terrific views of the ocean. Peaceful and relaxing. Enjoyed watching the fishermen heading out each morning and returning at days end into the nearby harbor. No need to search for that perfect restaurant with the ocean view....just whip up a gourmet meal to enjoy and you've got that spot right here. Convenient to shops and restaurants in Rockport and Gloucester as well as various beaches. The place is a real gem.

Almost hate to say how wonderful "Pigeon Cove" is, for fear it will be rented before we get a chance to pick out our weeks, but it is the best location as far as we are concerned in Rockport, and we plan to be yearly visitors as long as it is available.....

I can't imagine a more beautiful or quiet place to stay. My mom and sister flew in for a "girls" week and it couldn't have been better. We didn't want to leave. I can't wait to go back!
