This Cottage was well designed, very clean, and on a quiet one way street, less than 1/2 mile from Bearskin neck in Rockport.
The house is as pictured and set back from the street, with gardens in front..

The house is charming! Lots of light and comfort. The location is so convenient to the Rockport waterfront, shops, restaurants and beaches. We loved to sit on the front patio and enjoy the beautiful garden. The kitchen was well stocked, the beds comfortable and the house was very clean. The one small drawback was the TV. It was a smart TV without local, live network stations. But, that was minor.

I was not sure of the house, since I had not seen it before renting but it was a charm. Everything was A 1 in terms of amenities and the owner thought of everything. It was comfortable and very private. I liked that it was so close to Old Garden Beach. I felt like the home was mine.
My only criticism was not ONE window air conditioner was not enough to keep the house cool. We had it running 24/7 at 60 degrees to try to get some relief. Maybe the house needs ceiling fans, esp. downstairs or portable fans or another air conditioner. Of course, there is always central.
So as a result of a wonderful stay, I have booked for 2 weeks next August. It is worth every penny to be able to go back and enjoy the house and Rockport which is my first love.

Wonderful. Even better than last summer. The house is so comfortable and has everything people need for a good vacation. We will be coming back in 2022 for another week we loved it there so much. It was a very positive experience. One plus was the location, close to town and close to the beach and everything else.

Great location! Only .5 miles from here to the tip of Bearskin Neck and also to Front Beach. House was perfect for my family. Clean & cozy. Only one AC, but it kept the house comfortable. There was artwork inside from local artists (different from the pictures online) which we enjoyed and we bought a matching smaller print to remember our trip. There is a hose outside which was perfect for washing the sand off our beach stuff. The kids loved looking at the butterflies and bees in the garden, and they even found a snail. They loved the bedroom with the twin beds. We received a bag from the rental company with dish soap for hand washing dishes, a new sponge, and laundry soap. I wish they had included dishwasher soap as well. There were some coffee filters in the cabinet to use for the coffee maker. We loved getting breakfast at Helmut's Strudel and eating at Roy Moore's Fish Shack (awesome warm lobster rolls). We enjoyed our stay, and I highly recommend the Ladybug House.

Thank you very much for your delightful review. We loved the detail about what you all enjoyed about your stay at Lady Bug. It was an oversight that your Welcome bag did not have some dishwasher soap. Sorry about that. We will hopefully see you again next summer.

This was my first experience in renting a house for my family vacation. Due to the pandemic, we wanted to vacation but not have many worries of overcrowded hotels. Without a doubt, the Ladybug house offers location, a charming neighborhood, perfect cottage like stay and every amenity you can chose from there. The home is beautiful! Perfect for couples, a small family or an individual stay. We had every meal out on the front patio which offers views of perennial garden. The kids loved the room with twin beds and a beautiful breeze came through the house each night. In short, this home gave us many great vacation memories and thank you AVH for the welcome bag. We are planning our next stay and would choose the home again in a second.

We had a lovely stay at the ladybug house. In total we were 4 adults and we all slept comfortably in the two bedrooms. We really enjoyed dining and sipping our morning coffees on the patio with views of the Ladybug House’s beautiful garden. The kitchen and living room are open to one another, so we were all able to spend time together even while some of us were cooking. Our favorite part about the house was it’s location: in one direction you can easily walk to bearskin neck and in the other direction you can walk just a few minutes to access Old Garden Beach.
