Description

This charming vacation rental home is ideally situated just 300 yards from the waterfront, as well as a short walk (1 mile) to a sandy beach, and the picturesque village of Rockport with its shops, restaurants, galleries and the world class Shalin Liu Performance Center.

Choose to cook your lobsters in the large and recently updated eat-in kitchen, which is the center of this home, or bring them back boiled from one of the local markets and eat them on the shady brick patio (both of which have peek-a-boo ocean views!). This is a comfortable house that has plenty of places for everyone to gather, including the serene screen porch overlooking the verdant private yard and the front farmer's porch where you can watch the world go by. There are also multiple indoor seating areas, making entertaining easy. The first floor also has a single bedroom with an ensuite bathroom with a full bath and shower.

There are 3 bedrooms on the second floor and a new full bath with a shower. The house has beds for 6, but there is a pullout sofa in the living room for the occasional overnight guest. Please note that the stairs to the second floor are original to the home's vintage construction and may be somewhat steep for very small children or those with mobility issues.

Down the lane, just across the street, you are right on the waterfront, which is the perfect place to launch your kayak, or yourself! (Just bring your waterproof shoes, as the waterfront is a bit rocky, but totally safe.) Or if you want to spend the day at a sandy beach, Old Garden Beach (a protected neighborhood beach) is 1 mile toward town, and Cape Hedge Beach is 1.2 miles toward Gloucester.

There is parking for up to 4 cars in front of the house. Come and spend your summer vacation at this Rockport Seaside Retreat!

Rockport seaside Retreat is are at house... Lea, well situated,comfortable and peaceful location. There are ample places for lounging and the large kitchen is great for food preparation and in house dining. There is a great patio area out back for outside dining with a view of the ocean. It is in an ideal locaion for daily walks... Rockport center is exactly one mile away, very walkable and Heath's Tea Room is just a ten minute walk for a fabulous lunch experience!
