Description

Swim in beautiful Folly Cove just across the street from this sweet and comfortable vacation rental cottage. Right at the waterfront, there is a shared deck from which you can swim or launch your paddle board or kayak or just jump in! The deck is shared with two other homes owned by the same propriertor.

The living room with it's tasteful art and walls of bookshelves, has views of the water. Or enjoy the adjoining screen porch with granite floors also with views. Also on this level is a large open dining room area that connects to the kitchen. Perfect for congregating! A small den and a half bath. .

Upstairs are 4 bedrooms: a twin, two full, and one king. Three of the bedrooms have air conditioning units. There is also a full bath with a tub and shower on this level. Just outside the back door is the laundry building with shared washer and dryer. There is tandem driveway parking for 2 cars.

A fabulous feature of this property is the shared use of the waterfront deck that overlooks Folly Cove and which guests may use for sunning or as the launching point for swims in the crystalline waters of the cove. For the full waterfront experience, ask us about renting a Kayak or Stand-Up Paddleboard through Atlantic Vacation Homes.

Perfect week in Rockport

We were very happy with the cottage, which is rustic, but clean, charming and comfortable with everything we needed and beautiful water views. The deck overlooking the water is spectacular. We shared the cottage with our 2 adult children and their significant others. We explored Rockport and Gloucester, but the highlight was definitely the deck. The owner, Andrew, was lovely to deal with and working with AVH was very easy. I would highly recommend this rental.

Happy Days in Rockport.

Our experience was the best from the time we arrived until we left. We felt we were in our own home. Everything anyone could possibly need to run a home was provided. Lots of hot water, to w and d, to utensils and most of all a wonderful porch where we had breakfast each day. The view was extraordinary of the cove with an unobstructed view of the rocks and ocean and boats. We enjoyed walking the cove and nearby streets and even walked thru Halibut Point. We would definitely recommend this cottage over the other one, primarily because it is larger. There is also parking for 2 cars. The week flew by. We met Andrew and Mary and became fast friends with them and hope to see them in the future. We hope to return next summer.

Where do I begin....The Happy Days Cottage surpassed its name. Not only was it quaint and homey, the location was perfect for a"beachy" vacation. The accomodations were perfect for our family of six adults and to small children. Barbecuing dinner and eating at the picnic table was a delight. The kitchen was well equipped for all home-cooked meals as well as preparing for picnicking at the beach. Andrew and Mary provided helpful hints and info regarding historic sites and local hot-spots. Short day-trips to neighboring villages were a breeze. It was "right up there" with our favorite New England vacations.

Fantastic weekend!

Quite location, nice garden and patio across the road with cove views. The rooms were spacious and had nice bed linens and towels available. There's lovely original artwork, and it makes this place feel like you're visiting a home and not like a rental cottage.

Location-wise it's quiet, and you can easily get to either town by car.

Everything was absolutely spotless (and we left it so!) When we were missing a kitchen item, the rental agency were quick to resolve it. We had a nice BBQ as well out back.

If you have a larger group, they have another house just next door!

I whole-heartedly recommend this place and the rental agency who handled our booking and stay.

Charming Cottage on Folly Cove

This is a charming 1840's cottage right across the street from Folly Cove. Overall, we had a great time--very nice hosts, great spot, and the deck across the street is magnificent. A couple caveats: it's right on Rte. 127, which has a constant flow of traffic noise; the stairs to the second floor are very steep (too much for our older dog); the kitchen is equipped with the basic hodgepodge of rental house gear (i.e. somewhat random). All in all, a lovely stay, but if we come back to Cape Ann we'll probably look for someplace quieter.

Best Holiday-place ever
