Recent Rockport vacation rental reviews

House was great. Beds were very comfortable. Very interesting library and little surprises around every corner. Quiet, yet walkable to downtown
David P. | Apr 2024
House was large with comfortable seating. Dining room held all 10 of us comfortably. Sun room was beautiful with incredible views of sunrises. Beds were comfortable, bathrooms were clean. Kitchen was fully stocked with everything to cook with including a blender. 2 There were two refridgerators, one made ice. House is older, needs some attention to spackle and wallpaper. Nice and cozy warm even in March. Large back yard. Rock beach which was pretty cool for the kids to climb around on. Quiet neighborhood. Would revisit at another time.
Anita J. | Apr 2024

The crashing waves onto the backyard rocks are priceless the serenity and the beauty of the sorrounding is a dream come true. I highly reccomand this place for the one who love a unique, quite and romantic vacation.

It was once used as the primary source of timber for shipbuilding, and the area around Cape Ann was known for being one of the best fishing grounds in New England. Today, Rockport is also well-known among art history students and painting aficionados; a former fishing shack located on Bradley Wharf, called Motif Number 1, is known as the most frequently painted building in America.
