Description

This wonderful Rockport house, formerly an artist's studio, has been completely renovated into a luxury vacation home with harbor views. High ceilings, individually controlled high-end air conditioning units in each spacious room, and ample off-street parking are just some distinguishing features of this 3 bedroom/3 full bath house. It is tastefully decorated with many original oil paintings by its previous owner, a well-known Rockport artist.

The ground floor has a light-filled living room with vaulted ceilings, a queen bedroom, with TV, and ensuite bathroom with shower and second door to the hallway. The eat-in kitchen is fully applianced with the laundry adjacent.And both the kitchen and bath have radiant floor heat, to keep the chill off on cooler days. There is a farmer's porch just outside for relaxing. Upstairs there is a mahogany balcony with harbor views and two large bedrooms each with a queen bed and ensuite full bathroom, including shower and tub.

The house is perfectly situated harborside in the picturesque village of Rockport with its boutiques, art galleries, world-class concert hall, and a multitude of restaurants. Bike rentals, fishing charters and a choice of two great beaches are all within a 10-minute walk from the house.

Our family had a fabulous stay at Arcadia house. The house has an amazing location blocks from town, close to sunsets at the Headlands and enough parking to accommodate our family staying with us. The house is clean and has so many of the amenities/utencils you are looking for on vacation (especially in the kitchen) for our family who loves to cook together. When sitting outside, you can enjoy the gardens in the back that are maintained beautifully. We would definitely rent this house again as it was enjoyed by our whole family! Thanks for a great week Arcadia!

Positives : great location, walkable to town, beaches and beautiful scenery walks. Quality/comfortable space and amenities ( furniture, beds, TVs ). Great seating spaces to enjoy with family. Super clean. Negatives: pillows ( additional needed and better quality), sleeper sofa was not usable - needs to be replaced. Could have used a mid -visit garbage pick up. AVH was easy to work with. Appreciated the rental App - liked all the restaurant and “special places” recommendations - Checked out areas we wouldn’t have known about. Very fun and enjoyable week.

This was our second stay at Arcadia House and we loved every minute of our week. The location is perfect for us, we can walk to the beach and we are close to downtown and Bearskin Neck where we shopped and had ice cream every night. The home is spotless, up to date and very spacious and I hope we can return again next summer.

The house was so well appointed and with every amenity, with air conditioning and ceiling fans. I went searching for a card table and found one. I went searching for barbecue skewers and found them. I searched for boogie boards and found two. Beach chairs
were provided. I could walk to town in 3 minutes, yet the house felt private and with beautiful views. We will be back.

We had a wonderful stay in Rockport at the Arcadia House. It was our 3rd year in Rockport but the first time in this home. With 3 large bedrooms, each with its own bathroom we had plenty of room. The home was very clean and well equipped. We had everything we needed to prepare meals. The outside balcony overlooking the harbor was the perfect place for enjoying quiet mornings drinking coffee. Plenty of space for parking behind the house. Beautiful landscaping that surrounded outdoor eating and relaxing space. Extras such as beach chairs and boogie boards made a trip to the beach easy.

Arcadia House has the best location going. We took numerous walks through out the day to beautiful locations such as Garden Beach, or just to hang out at the busy dock to watch all of the seaside activities. The home is clean & graciously appointed with an upgraded well-designed kitchen. The outside area made for fun entertaining.

Arcadia House should be the blueprint for all other vacation home rentals. The layout was perfect for six adults and the property was pristine. We were continually amazed at all the thoughtful touches and amenities provided, especially in the kitchen. "All the comforts of home and then some" was our reaction. Easy walk to all Rockport attractions. Don't miss morning coffee on the balcony overlooking the water!

The house is beautiful and the location is incredible. Very quiet, and wonderfully close to town. We have stayed here 8 years and hope to return again next year. Easy access to Boston, Newburyport, Ipswich etc. Thank you Thank youThank you

great location (check out the headlands), great parking situation, 3 bedrooms and 3 baths. Fact that it has been renovated is important, particularly if you or your children have allergies. No mold, no mildew, no musty smells. Location, again, is terrific particularly if you like walking around town to explore. This is our fifth year staying at Arcadia house and we plan to go back next year.

We were delighted to be at Arcadia for three months this fall. We enjoyed the balcony and the back bedroom, which I used as a study, was full of sunshine in the late afternoon which made working there very pleasant. The kitchen was well-equipped, except for a box grater! And we definitely valued the location, right between the Headlands and downtown Rockport.

Love Rockport!

Our stay in Rockport was wonderful. We stayed at Arcadia House. Every morning we looked out at a beautiful blooming tree from the kitchen. Then the location was perfect walking distance to shopping and great restaurants. My only regret is that I didn't take enough photos during our stay.
