Description

Extraordinary views of Sandy Bay from this 2 bedroom 'half a house' in Rockport's quiet and lovely 'Avenues' area of Pigeon Cove have been known to stimulate the poetic side of its inhabitants. Sit in the dining/living area and watch the glittering sea from the wall of windows or outside on the deck. Or in the evenings enjoy a cozy fire in the fireplace. There is one queen bedroom and one full bedroom on the second floor plus a loft on the third floor, all with fabulous views.

Amble through the idyllic surrounding neighborhood, wonderful for walking or biking and taking in the sights. Climb the rocky coastal path, or just sit quietly in your vacation cottage by the sea. Great fishing from the rocks in front of the house. Town and swimming beaches are about 1 mile, and the working harbor of Pigeon Cove is a short and lovely walk. There is no TV at the property, but there is internet access. The other half of the property is reserved for the owner's quiet, part time use.

Poet's Cove-- a refuge from the madding crowd

Poet's Cove is a unique little house with a charming history whose location directly on the granite coastline of Andrew's Point could not be better. The house is quite comfortable, with comfortable beds, nice cotton sheets and linens (though the towels are getting a little worn), a kitchen with everything you need for basic meals, and very clean.

Great Location

This is a wonderful location right on the Atlantic Ocean. Large windows face east for a dramatic sunrise every day. Looking to the South you see a panoramic sea view of the Town of Rockport. At night the lights of the town twinkle through the trees as you sit on the deck. If you like to walk (or bike), it’s a pleasant two-mile stroll to town along the coast on a paved sidewalk. Your walk takes you past a small fishing harbor with lobster boats and fish shacks, a granite quarry with a stone bridge, pleasant old New England houses and sandy beaches.

There are also paths along the coast among the rocks that take you around the point with one hundred and eighty degree views of the ocean. If you happen to be in Poet’s Cove during a storm you will be treated to a safe and cozy view of New England’s wild coast and you imagine the history shipwrecks and the lifesaving efforts of this local community.

Have fun in Poet’s Cove!

We had quite a good time at Poet's Cove. Nice neighborhood, great views, quiet -- the way we like it. We'll be in touch about returning next year.

Now, a couple of things that may need attention. We forgot to close the damper on the fireplace (Sorry!). The front porch light doesn't work. We changed the bulb and it worked on and off -- We think that it is the wiring. Thanks for dispatching the plumber so quickly. He fixed the problems on the second day. The next day we discovered that the faucets in the bathroom on the first floor leak, so we didn't use them. You might want them checked out. And shortly before we left (Friday we think), the door from the deck to the other unit was slightly ajar, so we called the property manager and pulled the door shut. It locked.

These are all little things and didn't get in the way of a good time. We'll be back.

Great neighborhood, quiet, convenient. Experience the interior block paths for walking. Nice ocean view. And the large pot in the kitchen will steam two, maybe three 1 1/2 pound lobsters at a time.

Waking up or falling asleep to the sound of the ocean outside your window is indescribable. The view from the huge windows in the living room is also great. We had a lot of fun walking on the rocks outside the house. We would definitely come back.
