Description

This gorgeous in-town Victorian vacation rental home offers the best of all worlds; it has been beautifully renovated, but it retains the old-world charm of 14 foot ceilings, huge windows and large rooms. Modern updates include all new baths, windows, refinished hardwood floors, walls and woodwork. The house is perfectly situated just a short walk to Rockport Harbor, two beaches, restaurants, galleries, shops and the world-renowned Shalin Liu Performing Arts Center.

The house has two living areas -- a family room with a large flat screen Smart TV (with a complimentary Netflix account, already logged in for your convenience) and plenty of comfy seating, and a living room with huge windows and a new sectional sofa. The formal dining room seats at least 10, and the large eat-in kitchen has a large butcher block center island, fine Silestone counters, a dishwasher, and a washer & dryer. Off of the kitchen is a sunny, air conditioned guest suite with a queen bed and ensuite full bath with shower. Also accessible from the kitchen is one of the best features of the house -- a huge screened porch that serves as another living area, game area and shady place to eat and relax.

To get to the second floor, you have your choice of two staircases – the formal and gorgeous antique spiral, or the back stairs from the kitchen. There are 3 more air conditioned bedrooms, all with connecting full baths (2 queen bedrooms and a third bedroom with a double bed as well as a single bed with trundle) and 3 more brand new bathrooms with lovely Silestone vanities and custom tile work.

Pleasant House offers plenty of room for family and guests to spread out inside and out in the verdant yard and gardens. There is off street parking for 2 cars with plenty more available on the street. This is the spacious and perfectly located Rockport vacation home you have been looking for.

We go to Rockport every summer and have rented this house twice now. We've done it with three families and multiple kids and couples and the house works really well for this as it is large and has a great layout. Bedrooms and baths are well spaced out and as others have noted there is a ton of public space both inside and out. This year there were new yard chairs that were great and the driveway was was widened making it far easier to use. The neighbors (both residential and the inn next door) are really nice and welcoming. The house is really well located and it is super easy to walk to the beach and town.

We had a terrific experience in the Pleasant House in Rockport. The location is a beautiful and relatively short walk to the downtown area, and the house itself is a perfect layout. We had several people in the space, of different generations, and it is possible for many different things to be going on in the house at the same time. Young kids don't necessarily wake up people who want to sleep in, people who want to stay up later in the evening don't wake up early to bed types. The kitchen is wonderful, and the dining room table seats ten very comfortably. Those two rooms became a focal point for our activities. I would go back in a heartbeat.

We have vacationed in Rockport several times before and have loved it--tis was no exception. The house is very large and we actually did not need all the downstairs rooms. Most of our indoor time was spent in the kitchen and dining room and the back porch. We are a three-generation family and the house was roomy enough for all. The walk to beach and town was downhill and that meant a climb on the return. The neighborhood was quiet and pleasant.

We have stayed at a number of vacation rentals on Cape Ann, and this was the most well-appointed house yet. The kitchen was well-stocked with enough cutlery, plates, serving dishes, etc. The dining room was large with seats for everyone (10). There were hampers in every room, along with enough soap, and towels--everything you need. I dwell on this because it is unusual.

Now to the house itself. It is quite large and beautiful,and the photos do not do it justice. There is a tremendous amount of common space, with a large, comfortable screened-in porch that we used all the time. It is a short walk to downtown Rockport, and there are two or three beaches also in walking distance: Old Garden, and Front/Back Beach. The rooms were comfortable with shades on every window. Everything was very clean. There is also a nice large grill. The only downside, as a mom with young children, was keeping my crazy 22 month old from going flying down the hill and into the street (which he did). But that is no fault of the house or its owner.

This house is BEAUTIFUL, inside and outside!!! The pictures do not do it justice. It is much more spacious than we expected. Furniture was great, accommodated a group of 10 with room to spare. Everyone could find a quiet space or gather together in one room comfortably. The kitchen was well equipped for any type of cooking or baking. It was a nice to have a washer and dryer especially after a day at the beach. The screened in porch was such a pleasant place to cool off at night. The location was perfect-a short walk to town, a town with great shops and restaurants. So many great touches too. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would love to return again.

We had a total of ten family members (7 adults, 3 kids) fly in from California for a wedding. The Pleasant House was perfect! Plenty of space to spread out, with 4 bathrooms and showers we could all get ready easily, a large kitchen, and lovely screened porches for kids to play and hang out. The home was clean and had everything we needed. There were even towels, an umbrella, and a cooler for a day at the beach. The kids enjoyed the beach toys on our day at Good Harbor Beach. It was great to be walking distance to town especially on a holiday weekend. One minor repair was quickly taken care of by maintenance. We will definitely consider coming back!

So very happy with the Pleasant Street rental

Not very happy that there was no cable TV. At that price cable TV is a given.

Thank you for your comments, they have made a difference. We now have upgraded to expanded cable. Originally, it was thought that Netflix and other shows would give our guests the programming they wanted but we agree, it wasn't enough. Feedback is so important. Much appreciated.

I found the house to be spacious and well kept. It is a "choppy" floor plan, due to the way additions have been made; however, we spent most of the time in the kitchen. the only negative is the driveway: narrow and lined with granite rocks that gouged several of our cars. If the driveway cannot be widened, at least replace the sharp rocks.

I live in Rockport, and 10 family members came for a reunion, 8 staying in the rental house and 2 at the Pleasant St. Inn right next door (rave reviews). The house was perfect; plenty of space to be together, and also space to get away from the crowd. The dining room easily accommodated us all (this is hard to find) and the kitchen worked well, as we take turns cooking each night. The house has been recently restored with high quality bathrooom fixtures,good lighting, refinished floors,and contemporary colors, without loosing the charm of a Victorian house. The house is in easy walking distance of the Shalin Liu Performance Center, beach, shops, shore walks, the Art Association, and restaurants. People could come and go as they wished, without having to worry about parking. Overnight parking on Pleasant Street was easy. AVH responded immediately when we needed more flatware. We would definitely rent this house again.

We were very happy with our week-long stay at Pleasant House. Lots of space, very cleanly kept, old-house charm but with very modern updates. We had 4 adults and 6 kids (ages 2-13) and everyone had their own space and found lots to do. The owner keeps a little closet with games, beach toys and other amenities which we appreciated. The kitchen had pretty much anything you needed in terms of dishes and cookware (we did bring our own electric skillet). Even the spice drawer was well stocked. Towels and sheets were plentiful and very clean. Very happy with our stay!
