My wife and I wanted a place to get away for a nice weekend close to the shore and I had heard nice things about Rockport. I chose the Angel Rose because of it's excellent reviews and it turned out to be a fantastic choice.
The home itself is very nice, lots of history and a large collection of antique furnishings. Even though it is an old house, it is in superb condition and comfortably cooled, even when it was very hot outside as it was for our visit. The rooms are all very nice. We stayed in the Rose Room, which was quite comfy. It had a dedicated bathroom across the hall that was small, but nice. The claw foot tub was a nice touch. All the sitting areas, the porch and the dining area were very comfortable and full of interesting things to look at. The whole house is clearly very well cared for and feels quite elegant.
The location couldn't be better. It is a very short walk to the marina and many of the Rockport museums. It is a short drive to Fulton Mansion, Goose Island Park and some of the other area sights. We drove to Port Aransas Beach to swim the one day, which was about a 40-minute trip, but that would have been less without the ferry wait.
There are some very nice restaurants in the area. We really liked Paradise Key and Latitude 28 02, both of which were recommended by our hosts and the latter is a very short walk from the house.
The owners, Jennifer and Rusty, were excellent hosts. Upon arrival we received a tour and history of the house as well as a helpful orientation of the Rockport sights. They are both very knowledgeable about Rockport and at breakfast Sunday, Rusty gave a nice overview of the area's history.
The breakfast was excellent each day. Both days we had a very nice fruit cup. The menus included muffins, omelets and a very nice eggs Benedict.
I would highly recommend Angel Rose.
