From its waterfront perch, this vacation rental home overlooks Rockport's picturesque Pigeon Cove harbor and has spectacular, unobstructed views of Sandy Bay. The location of the home is ideal, away from all the hustle of town, but within a 10-15 minute walk to everything you might want, including Front Beach, restaurants, galleries and shops and the world class Shalin Liu Performing Arts Center. Stroll along the waterfront Atlantic Path, take a hike at nearby Halibut Point State Park, or walk towards the village, stopping at Back Beach along the way.

Enjoy the water views from the deck, porch and patio that grace each level of the Sunrise on the Cove or, choose to watch the boats go by from just about every room. The home was updated in 2022 with refinished wood floors, new furniture, and fresh, beachy décor. Mini-splits throughout the home keep everything climate-controlled.

The main floor has two bedrooms, one Queen with water views and another double bedroom. There is also a full bath with a walk-in shower on this level. A Queen suite comprises the entire second floor and includes a sitting area, flat screen TV, and sliders to its own balcony with amazing views. There is a second Queen suite on the lower garden level, with its own full bathroom and deck. The laundry area is also on the garden level.

Sunrise on the Cove is the perfect place to watch the sunrise from any of the decks or while sitting on an Adirondack chair from the waterfront yard complete. Warm up on cool summer nights sitting by the fire pit on the sandy "beach" in the back yard. (Note: Swimming from the property is not allowed, due the rocky shoreline). Come and enjoy your little slice of waterfront heaven at Sunrise on the Cove. Please note that as this is a waterfront property, children should be supervised at all times.

Dogs allowed (Pet fees apply). No smoking. No events or parties.

Wonderful place

by John G

The house was just as advertised with cozy spaces and outstanding views from everywhere inside and outside the house. It appeared the house was recently remodeled as everything seemed new. The third floor bedroom having only a half bath was unusual but we just doubled up on the main level bath which, like the lower level bath, was beautiful and ample in size. Everything worked from the coffee pot to the grill to the ac units. We were provided with two bundles of firewood for the fire pit which was sufficient for two nice evenings outside. They have really maximized the use of the space in this lovely house. Overall very nice and good value.

Truly a Sunrise

by Leigh G

This was our first visit to this property and plan to return the same time next year. Five adults and a 2 year old granddaughter had plenty of space and privacy. The rear of the house has three different deck levels which makes for great viewing of the harbor and north shore seacoast. Two of the decks are shaded, the top deck is not. After 11am the middle and lower decks are in the shade. With the sun rising in the east you may want to have eye masks for the 6am gorgeous rush of sunlight into your bedroom.

BEST VACATION RENTAL YET!

by Unknown

Sunrise on the Cove was a cute cottage with spectacular views of the Cove, the ocean and the Lighthouse. Only recommendation is for firmer mattresses... This year we were able to see more Family/Friends and went to more restaurants, several times... Seaport, The Village and the Boathouse. All had excellent food. Hope to return next year! Thank you for a another great and memorable vacation!

Thank you for your lovely review! We look forward to seeing you again next year.

Frazier Top Spot 2019

by Kathleen
We had an absolutely wonderful two weeks at Sunrise on the Cove. We have stayed here a couple of times before in August. We spend a lot on time on the porches reading and following the parade of lobster fisherman depositing their catch at the consortium across the cove. The owners have spent a small fortune on the porch furniture on all three decks. We cook a number of meals and the kitchen is top notch. We have stayed in a number of places in the Gloucester and Rockport areas for twenty years and this is the best venue we have ever had. We, of course, have already booked the place for two weeks next year.
Thank you for your 5-star review! We are thrilled to hear that you had a fabulous two-week stay at Sunrise on the Cove. We look forward to seeing you next summer!

Family vacation at Pidgeon Cove

by Ann
Sunrise on the cove is an amazing home to spend a week in rockport. Coffee on the wrap around porch each morning, and sitting in the adirondack chairs with a glass of wine and a good book, watching the lobster boats come in to the cove is amazing. comfortable beds, great kitchen and the view is amazing. this was our 2nd stay at this home and it's improved in the past 2 years.

What a View!

by Unknown
We had a delightful week at Sunrise on the Cove! The house is warm and welcoming, and had plenty of room for the 6 of us. The porch looking out to the ocean is the high point, and we spent long hours reading, playing cards, and just watching the boats come and go. It is QUITE sunny first thing in the morning, you will need sunglasses, but a cool ocean breeze kept things comfortable. The firepit is a great addition! Clean, well stocked kitchen. We'll be back!

A Great Vacation!

by Unknown
This was our third year at Sunrise on the Cove and remains as one of our favorite locations for a peaceful, beautiful vacation. Unlike the previous two summers there were some minor differences in the overall maintenance of the property that should be corrected i.e. sink in the main level bathroom and the toilet in that bathroom. We would highly recommend this vacation home - the view is exquisite - its a short distance from everything and anything you want to do AND it's very private! You won't regret a stay at Sunrise on the Cove! In fact you will want to go back!
Thank you for your kind review and for letting us know about the maintenance issues so that we were able to get them resolved. We hope to welcome you back in 2018 for a fourth year!

Sunrise

by Jodie
we had a wonderful stay at sunrise on the cove !!! it was a perfect home for a large group and the views were AMAZING!!!! the only thing that would have been better is if we had covers for the windows and skylights as the sun does rise at 5:05 am! but to wake up to the ocean everyday was beyond beautiful!!!! so close to town and fantastic seating areas throughout the home inside and out!! of course there was some construction during our stay and it was a bit distracting especially when the chip and hammer started but.........all and all it truly was a fantastic home!!! so thank you AVH and the wonderful home owners who upon arrival had a perfect gift waiting for us!!!! we will always hold sunrise in a very special place in our hearts.... thank you again!!! the Rokanas clan!!!!!

Very nice ocean-front getaway

by Joseph
We stayed here for a 3-day weekend, and enjoyed it very much. The house has been thoughtfully detailed for use as a rental. We particularly enjoyed sitting on the deck and watching both the ocean wildlife and the boats coming and going from Pigeon Cove.
