My wife and I stayed here for three nights at the end of a New England trip and absolutely loved the location of this place. It was a short walk to downtown Rockport (such as it is) where we toured art galleries and watched the dogs playing on the beach. By far and away, the best feature about this place is the view. From our room we could see the beach and the town and sometimes, when there wasn't any traffic, we could hear the tiny waves as they reached the beach. Also, sitting on the big front porch, reading the paper with a last cup of coffee, was a perfect way to start a morning.We had a queen bed with funky lamps all around the room.(I can't remember the name of the room but an upstairs room with that view is definitely the way to go!)
If there is a drawback it has to be the on street parking which sometimes could be a challenge. Also, it seemed our host was never around. This usually wasn't a problem but there were times it would have been nice to get a question answered or just talk about the area.
As we were there in October, high season was definitely past so a lot of the shops in town were closed, but on the weekend, everything opened and it was like cruise ships had docked! The town was packed! This definitely is a town to spend a couple of days on a weekend and do some exploring and staying within walking distance of downtown is also the best way to do it.
