Description

Granite Pier is a traditional Cape Ann home with an unusual history. Built in the mid to late 1800’s, it was part of the Rockport Granite Company housing workmen who mined the nearby quarries. Blending traditional craftsmanship with modern amenities, this home is quintessential New England with ocean views from its multiple decks, from the master bedroom and from the sun room. Multiple skylights and large windows let natural light flood in. Granite Pier can be rented in conjunction with sister cottage Granite Courtyard (next door) for larger groups.

Explore nearby Gull Cove, which is less than a five-minute walk from the home or travel to the end of the actual Granite Pier (for which the house is named), which affords 270-degree views of the great Atlantic and the Rockport coastline. Go there early in the morning to experience the sunrise over the water. There is a boat launch at the pier just 120 yards from the house, where you can bring your kayaks or stand up paddle boards and explore the area by water. (Kayaks and SUPs can be rented through Atlantic Vacation Homes).

Experience swimming in a fresh water quarry known as Little Parker Pit just up the road a piece (400 yards) and see how refreshing a dip in the quarry is on a hot summer day. Like hikes or running in the woods, then leave the house, walk under the Keystone Bridge made from Rockport granite and enter into the beautiful Dogtown wilderness. Have a boat? You'll find it easy to manage a trailer. Front Beach and Back Beach are also close by.

The house and the location are amazing! The house was very clean, slept many and the kitchen was fully stocked with all our cooking needs. The outdoor patios were a great addition and we tried to spent more time outside than in. The house is an easy 15 minute walk to downtown Rockport and multiple beaches. We came, we relaxed and we ate lobster. We had a fantastic time and would absolutely recommend this home to other families!

A very good experience

We had a good time, the house was very cozy and the owners were thoughtful in terms of anticipating renters' needs. We wish they had central a/c and while one of the units was not working the staff at AVH were quick to come out and fix it
Manager response on 2017-07-25 - Response from AVH Realty Inc
Thank you for your review, it was great meeting you when I came to fix the A/C. We look forward to welcoming you back to Rockport soon.

We stayed at this property 5 days during the fourth of July long weekend- and everything was perfect! We loved the home- which had everything we needed and was beautifully decorated. Prior to our arrival, we communicated a couple times with AVH, and the staff there were always very helpful with information about this specific property as well as local knowledge of the area. Our stay was more than comfortable, with great views and great location. Downtown was only a quick 20 min walk, and the fourth of July Rockport bonfire was just around the corner. The property is easily accessible (right off of 127) and the driveway easily fit our 2 suv's. We had the most wonderful family vacation- thank you AVH!
Manager response on 2017-08-02 - Response from AVH Realty Inc
Thank you so much for your lovely review! We are glad that you had a good time and we look forward to the chance to host you again next year.
