Charming weekend in Rockport
Periwinkle Cottage was the perfect place to stay for a long weekend in Rockport. The cottage was cute, sparkling clean, and had some nice extra touches like cookies and prosecco. The location was an easy walk to shops, scenery, and the beach. Price was not bad for what you get. I would happily come back.

This is truly a home away from home. A short walk to town where parking is at a premium. Stocked with everything you might need, with extra touches like a new kitchen sponge, chocolate chip cookies and 1/2 & 1/2 in the refrigerator! Lots of restaurants in town to indulge your every seafood desire. And if you are craving meat, try the roast beef sandwich at Rockport Houseof Pizza and Roast Beef. Seriously good! This is our 3rd stay at Periwinkle Cottages and we would go back in a heartbeat. Rose is a great host!

Our second lovely stay in #1 Periwinkle Cottage!
Dear Rosemarie and Family! Our second lovely stay in #1 Periwinkle Cottage! So rejuvenating – we had to stay the extra day! We are very grateful for the ease of keeping our bikes just outside the door. We treasure this home away from home, the caring appointments, and the simple fixings of a light breakfast, snack or meal keeps us healthfully on track for our active exploring and dining out in Cape Ann!. Thank you again for a lovely stay. Be back to try #2. Katy and Mark Easthampton, MA

A beautifully appointed cottage
We stayed four nights at Periwinkle Cottage at the beginning of June. The cottage is neat and has everything one could need. One thing I particularly appreciated was that there was a supply of coffee there when we arrived. We didn't use the kitchen much, because we mostly ate out, but we could see that there were plenty of supplies of every kind. The place is beautifully decorated and has comfortable outdoor seating. The only thing lacking was the weather, but Rosemary is not in control of that. It was a bit chilly for June.

Absolutely awesome!
I can't praise Rosemarie enough for such a comfortable and convenient place to stay in Rockport, MA. Immaculate, fully equipped kitchen, comfy bed, washer/dryer, quiet and beautiful location, snacks, bottled water, plus Half and Half for my coffee! Rosemarie is a first class hostess, she even picked my up at the train station and took me to the Post Office when needed. I especially thank her for being quick to respond. I am a yearly visitor to Rockport and haven't found anything comparable in the area.

Top Notch
First time to Rockport and it did not disappoint. Periwinkle Cottage was fantastic. Comfortable, clean and convenient. I would recommend it without hesitation and I hope to stay there again in the future. The owner was wonderful as well. Available to answer questions and made the entire process easy.

Perfect in every way
Periwinkle Cottage had everything you would need to relax and enjoy the area known as Cape Ann. From it’s beautifully-maintained property to the impeccable layout inside you would be hard-pressed to find a nicer place to stay. Rose and Guy made sure we had a wonderful time and followed up during our stay to make sure this happened. Rockport is a quiet little hamlet located in the northeast corner of Massachusetts; a gem that we discovered and one that we shall visit again. Thank you for helping us to create memories that will last a lifetime!!!

Exceptional Cottage- Beautiful Touches
It was very nice and clean and cozy with great extra features . All the extra touches made it feel really special. Rose goes out of her way to make her guests feel special and comfortable. Rose and Guy are so pleasant and very knowledgeable of the area and recommending restaurants and places to see. Would surely stay there again.
