We have been visiting Rockport and staying at the Quarry Crest House for years. Our visit this past July was one of the best as the weather was perfect, and the house is always comfortable with many rooms to spread out in.

GREAT HOUSE!!!

We had a really nice vacation staying at Quarry Crest House in Rockport with our daughter, son-in-law and 23-month old grandson for nine days. The house was perfect for us with this age toddler: no dangerous steps to fall down (all well padded with carpeting) and plenty of places for him to play, plus a BIG bin of toy cars and trucks that kept him occupied for hours. Back yard is shady and he could be watched playing there by an adult in the (well-equipped) kitchen or dining room. We loved being able to walk to beaches and to town and swimming in the beautiful nearby quarry. We also loved how quiet and private it was --no noise at night except the wind.

Our recent vacation in Rockport at the Quarry Crest House was fantastic. We had a couple off days weather wise, and the roomy comfortable house made up for the rain. Multiple living areas indoors and out allowed us to spread out and truly relax. We love the Little Quarry and swam there almost every day, especially after a Long Beach day. Our only complaint would be the grill which only barely works on one side and really should be replaced.

the house was just as advertised and in very clean condition upon our arrival. The layout of the interior as well as the outside patio in backyard and wood deck on the side of the house provided plenty of spaces for a family group to find space for reading or just relaxing. Kitchen, dining room, outdoor patio layout provided an excellent space for meal preparation and service.
The AVH staff was very helpful and pleasant to speak with. They were very responsive to our inquiries and requests.
We would not hesitate to recommend this property to a friend or relative. The access to the town made it easy as we could leave the tranquil property and in a few minutes be among the wonderful ships and sights of Rockport.
We hiked at Halibut Point which had magnificent views and provided easy hiking for all. The shops in town were great and a nice variety of art, food (helmut's strudel--yum), and giftware and clothing. We took a lovely ride to Ipswich for lunch at the famous Clam Box restaurant and enjoyed the antique shops along the way in Essex.
To add to our enjoyment we had fabulous weather and enjoyed an evening hot dog meal at the beach!
We found a game called Anomia on the book shelf and enjoyed it so much we ordered our own through Amazon! There was a nice variety of books although we brought ourr own and I actually left a few behind for future guests to enjoy!
Thank you.

Happiness is the Quarry Crest House!!!

Rockport has been a vacation destination for many years and as our family grew we realized we needed a larger house. We were so happy and excited to find the Quarry Crest House, nestled in a lovely neighborhood within walking distance to the town beach and center of town. The house has many living spaces for those times one needs to read or nap in quiet. We spent many hours lolling in the beautiful quarry a stones throw from the house. We can't wait to return next year!

Thank you for the charming review, Eileen! We're always delighted to hear about families enjoying the relaxing nature of Quarry Crest House and the lively attractions of Rockport so nearby. We thank you for choosing Atlantic Vacation Homes and we will certainly see you next year. Have a wonderful rest of the summer!

We had a pleasant stay for the most part. The house was very clean and the neighborhood nice and quiet. Loved the views of the big quarry out back, the walking trails, and swimming in the little quarry. Kitchen was very suitable and comfortable to use. Bedrooms a little close for comfort but no real problems there.

Drawbacks: downstairs basement room is not the right place for the television. It should be upstairs. There is a bush on the front deck which badly needs trimming, it interferes with the chairs. Contrary to what the ads.say, there is not an ocean view, except perhaps from the upper porch which is off limits to tenants. Air conditioner didn't work but that wasn't a problem

AVH staff was very helpful in telling us how to get into the house using the lock box.

Thank you for a pleasant stay

Manager response on 2015-05-20 - Response from AVH Realty Inc
Thank you for your comments. Please note that the annoying bush that has been on the porch has been completely removed. We are so glad you enjoyed the hikes around the quarry, it is an extraordinary location. What a treat to walk out the back door for some wonderful hikes and then to cool off in Little Parker's quarry where you can also swim laps!

Great vacation spot!

The accommodations were accurately described, the rental was clean,comfortable and well maintained. Mother Nature gave us 4 days of gray/foggy weather in a row, which put a damper on the amount of swimming we planned. So we were able to enjoy the restaurants and local attractions and great walking trails.

We rented this house Labor Day Weekend for a small reunion of college friends. I can't say enough good things about it! It's a very nice house, and we found it in impeccable condition--more like a nice hotel than a rental (new soaps, piles of plush towels). The location is excellent: walking distance to town and steps from dramatic views and a lovely swimming quarry. One caveat: there's no barrier between the back yard and the huge drop-off to Flat Ledge Quarry; I'd be uneasy staying there with small children.

My family and friends were very pleased with our experience at Quarry Crest House. It was exactly what we needed in the several days leading up to my daughter's wedding in S. Hamilton. The location was perfect! We were walking distance from the dock, beach and quaint town of Rockport. The quarries were both great. The one in the backyard was very beautiful and the flat quarry down the street was perfect for our kids and friends to swim. I would recommend this home for anyone looking for a great vacation spot.

Swimming in the quarries is a staple of Cape Ann, and an amazingly enjoyable experience! We're happy that you, your family & friends all had such a great time at Quarry Crest House! We hope you decide to return to Cape Ann soon. PS: Congratulations to your daughter and her new spouse!!!
