Recent Rockport vacation rental reviews

Perfect for a couple, two kids (grown or not), and a dog. Master bedroom queen and twin bed in two of the bedrooms were very comfortable. Full kitchen, family room, game room with window seats PERFECT for entertaining. The location can't be beat. Rockport is a wonderful town with public footpaths EVERYWHERE along the coast. Loved our adventures on foot, by car, or by bike.

This cottage is quirky and cobwebby in the corners but it was comfortable for us, and the gardens and ocean view are absolutely stellar. Lack of air-conditioning might be uncomfortable for heat-sensitive folks in the summer. Unbeatable price for the location. We loved it.

What you see in the pictures is what you get. This cottage is outdated but the location is worth any negative comments. The steps to the beach are right in front of the property....easy to get to.

Culture in Rockport, MA

The quaint coastal village of Rockport was originally settled in 1623. 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. 

With more than four miles of lovely beaches, scenic paths through the woods and glades, and beautiful coastal light that has inspired many famous painters, it's no surprise Rockport has become a popular destination.
