Perfect location and homelike comfort
Wendy was a fabulous hostess! We had a kitchen stocked with cereals, milk, soda and cold water in the fridge, ice, and even a small cooler on top of the fridge. Wendy was warm and welcoming, very responsive to all questions and there on our day of arrival, and we LOVED our stay. This was our first vacation with our almost 1 year old and it was great. The locale is steps away from Front beach, with an outdoor shower, yard and grill for enjoying the sea breezes outside. Numerous restaurants and galleries nearby and very close to Bearskin Neck. Of note- Not sure that the description mentions this, but the loveseat pulls out into a bed (its either twin or full!) We would absolutely stay again!

Home Away From Home
What a wonderful place!! I had the upstairs to myself as well as a living room. Wendy has thought of everything! Very hospitable. I wish I could have stayed here for a month. Beautiful backyard! I really enjoyed the outdoor shower, the weather was warm enough to use it. Located within a five minute walk from everything that you will want to see. Bed was comfortable, TV in the bedroom and living room. Wendy even has a Keurig coffee maker available and a small refrigerator that I used. Loved the rocking chairs on the porch. Would love to stay here again! Maybe next summer...

We so much enjoyed this cute, little cozy...
We so much enjoyed this cozy little apartment! It is a great find and well kept with everything you need to enjoy your stay in Rockport. Walk to Bearskin Neck in the heart of the Art Village, to local beach an d park, and enjoy great little restaurants. A comfy bed, cute garden and truly great folks that assure a comfortable stay. We love exploring Rockport and appreciate the parks and nice people.

COZY, COMFORTABLE, CLEAN, WARM GETAWAY
My husband and I stayed in the studio and loved it. The location is great. You are near all the shops in town and the beach is a block away. The train station is nearby and we were able to go Fenway Park by train. The studio has everything you need from sheets, towels, soap, wifi,refrigerator, and even coffee and snacks. Wendy the owner has decorated the studio with love. It is clean and comfortable. She was wonderful and so very kind and helpful. She has a beautiful garden and sitting area in the back yard that is so peaceful. She provides you with a parking spot that allows you to not worry about putting money in the parking meters. I have been telling anyone who wants to visit the Boston area to stay at Wendy's beautiful getaway. My husband and I are looking forward to returning next fall.

Perfect location for a relaxing vacation
We come every year! It's a wonderful homey place- attractive, clean and convenient to everything. We don't even need a car when we come. This year we used the top floor guest rooms to spread out, and it was wonderful to have the extra space and privacy for everyone in the group. The living room is perfect for hanging out and watching a movie, and the fridge upstairs was very convenient for keeping cold drinks and leftovers on hand for those lazy evenings. The front porch is great for people watching while having a glass of wine at the end of the day. We'll be back here every summer!

Perfect Studio Apartment
This studio apartment is perfectly located within a minute's walk to the beach and to the unique shops located along the north end of Main Street in Rockport. I enjoyed morning coffee on the large second-story porch with a view of the water. In summer, the owner's gardens provide a beautiful setting for a glass of wine before dinner which can easily be prepared in the kitchen area of the studio. Although Rockport attractions are easily within walking distance, Seaside Gardens is removed from the busiest part of town - it's a perfect place to relax by the sea!

About the neighbourhood
Best location in town for walking to beach, shops, galleries and harbor area! Perched at the edge of the retail area, you have easy access yet a quieter setting to enjoy the yard, gardens, picnic area and enjoy the sound of the waves on a quiet night. The commuter train into Boston is a short walk and the CATA bus to neighboring town goes right by the house. The main beach is just around the corner! Shalin Liu Performance Center for live musical concerts is 1/2 block away. Lots of galleries and specialty shops, a quaint and historic Bearskin Neck harbor area, and a variety of restaurants from cafes to fine dining all featuring fresh lobster , area clams and fresh seafood. Casual atmosphere! On street parking. You have easy access by car or train to historic Salem and Boston as well as access to major highways to explore the coast of New Hampshire and Maine or the White Mountain area.
Getting around
CATA bus service goes right by the house providing access to nearby Gloucester. A number of taxi services are available including airport (Logan Airport in Boston) transportation. The commuter train from Rocport to Boston's North Station is a short walk away and a great way to get to Boston without the hassle of traffic and high cost of parking. Salem is also a stop along the way with marked walking routes to Salem's attractions starting just outside the train depot. The Essex County Scenic Byway is a great route to follow from Rockport north to Newburyport if traveling by car with lots of antique shops, New England scenery, farms and restaurants.
Access
Car not needed
How to get there
Rt 95/128 from the South to Peabody where 128 diverges from 95 heading to Gloucester. DO NOT TAKE 95 N or you will end up in New Hampshire. 128 continues on the left although the signage says it is an exit, it really is just a straight line with 94 curving off to the right. From Peabody on 128, just stay on 128 to the end in Gloucester. Go half way around two rotaries and straight to the first set of lights at Eastern Avenue/127 and turn LEFT onto 127. Stay on 127 into Rockport (about 3 miles) and at the 5 corner intersection bear to the right going down hill toward the harbor. At the end, the harbor wharf will be in front of you and the shops begin. Turn LEFT and follow shops on Main St around to the left along the shore for 2/12 blocks to the house on the left. We are just past Beach St. If you are flying into Boston, you can take the subway to North Station then the commuter train to Rockport which is at the end of the line. Walk out to the street at the Duncan Donuts, turn RIGHT and walk a block to the 5 corner intersection. Turn LEFT on Main St walking against the one way out traffic about 2 blocks. House will be on the RIGHT before the start of the shops.
