Enjoy the comforts of modern-day living while you step back in time in this updated colonial-era vacation rental home. From the moment you turn the brass doorknob, which is original to the house, you will feel steeped in history.

Filled with light from the large windows throughout, and with 4 bedrooms and 1 full bath, the house comfortably sleeps 7. The Robert House is steps from everything in the Village of Rockport including the picturesque working harbor and one of America’s most favored art subjects, the red fishing shack of Motif #1.

While in the spacious dining room (with seating for 8), marvel at the original fireplace (decorative only) and mantel, imagining the stories that could be told if only they could talk! As you enter into the eat-in kitchen, you are immediately transported back into the 21st century with the beautiful, bright updated design complete with all the modern appliances.

At the front of the house, the cozy living room welcomes you after a long day at the beach to relax in good company or to enjoy the new flat-screen television. The first floor is completed by a full bathroom with a tub and shower. The second floor has four uniquely-designed bedrooms providing plenty of space for the whole family to come and enjoy. All four bedrooms are equipped with window air conditioner units.

The Robert House is well-situated to enjoy all that Cape Ann has to offer. Enjoy the pristine beaches by taking a short walk to Old Garden Beach, Front Beach, or Back Beach. Or revel in the charm of Rockport by exploring the local shops, art galleries and restaurants on Bear Skin Neck and the surrounding historic lanes. If you need a rest and prefer a day of relaxing at the house, the large, lush backyard is a feature that is not often found with this convenient in-town location. There is off-street parking for two cars next to the house, and also plenty of metered parking nearby. This is the perfect Rockport getaway for sun and fun!

Please note: Adding to the charm of this traditional colonial home is its original staircase. These stairs are narrow and should be noted by those with small children or mobility restrictions.

No pets. No smoking. No events or parties.

Rockport Family Vacation

by Michelle
Great place for a family vacation! Roomy with well stocked kitchen yard to run around in and just steps from all the shops, piers and 2 blocks from the beach in Rockport. Easy way to relax on Cape Ann. Do note the stairs as described are very steep due to age of the house. We helped older members of the family up and down. If mobility is a problem this house is not for you.

Long weekend in Rockport

by Jessica
We wanted a long weekend not too far from Boston, and this was perfect. Walkable to downtown Rockport, and not too far from local beaches. The house was clean and well appointed, easy to park two cars, and a spacious back yard. My only wish is that we had a resident tag available to us, as we were turned away from Good Harbor Beach because we didn’t have one.

Amazing house steps from downtown Rockport

by Unknown
All six of us loved this house and its perfect location, walking distance from stores and restaurants. Lots of charm while still touting modern amenities like window unit ACs in the bedrooms. An older house, the stairs are quite steep and would be a problem for small children or people with mobility issues. The one bathroom was a challenge for 6 women, but all agreed it was well worth it for location and style.
Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us! We are happy to hear that everyone enjoyed their stay at The Robert House with all of its charm, style, and location! We appreciate your feedback and hope to see you for your next summer getaway.

Perfect little retreat

by Krystin
My family and I visited Rockport for my brother's wedding And couldn't ask for a better house. This home was absolutley perfect. Just the right amount of space and of course the location was amazing. The house has so much charm and makes you wonder what those walls would say if they could talk. I will say the stairs leading upstairs are very steep so if you have children please take caution.
