Description of the Rockport vacation home rental
Located above the western shore of Gloucester’s historic harbor and lovingly renovated in 2011, this beautiful and spacious five bedroom Victorian house has been in the same family since the 1880's. From the side entrance on a quiet lane, you will step into a bright back hall with full bath and separate laundry. The formal dining room has a table sized to fit the whole family, while the living room boasts a working tiled fireplace and cushioned window seat. The TV den/office alcove flows into the eat-in fully applianced kitchen with pantry. The small side porch is a great place for the children to play at dinnertime and to grill those burgers! You came here to go to the beach, not watch TV, but the parlor contains a recliner sofa and loveseat and 50" smart flat screen TV. The elegant front hall and staircase lead up to 5 second floor bedrooms, a full bath, and a large deck from which you can still see wooden schooners under full sail. There are air conditioning units in the king and 2 queen bedrooms.

Walk down to Stage Fort Park with its playground, two beaches – Cressy’s (named for the original owners of this house) and Half Moon, a splendid sandy beach set among rocky outcrops with sun and shade – tennis courts, concerts, fireworks, and a seasonal neighborhood restaurant and ice cream store. Across the street and a short walk up one of the oldest roads in New England is the entrance to Gloucester's 500 acre nature preserve, Ravenswood Park. Wingaersheek Beach is just a 10 minute drive, or you can stroll along the boulevard past the iconic Man at the Wheel sculpture into Gloucester, where shops, restaurants, whale watch excursions and schooner cruises await you.
