Location and neighborhood were perfect!
House needs updating including worn old furniture and worn straw rug in living area where the most traffic is. Not enough lighting inside house.
Oh dear -I see I must respond.
I'm glad you like the location views- the spectacular sunrises and mesmerizing ocean tides. But truly sorry the inside wasn’t what you expected. I try to be as true as I can in my photos and descriptions and update when there is a change. If you look at each of my inside photos -they show exactly what it looks like- including some New England antique furniture and furnishings. (And to be clear those rugs are made with Rattan -not straw. I imported them from Indonesia myself.) I guess it is a matter of taste. Past guests write how “comfortable” and clean it is, and happily 85% of them are returning ones- most of them for more than 10 years. Still for me -you were great guests and I did give you 5 stars.
A piece of heaven
The cottage and its location are a piece (or peace) of heaven. I close my eyes and dream about it when I'm not there. The cottage has lots of character and the owner has thought of everything you might need. Although the cottage is conveniently located near Rockport (walking distance away) and Gloucester, there is NO incentive to leave the property. It is also located in a very lovely area to walk and ride bikes. Lots to do and see in the surrounding area. Highly recommend it
Magical views over the ocean
This cottage offers superb views of the ocean - almost as if you were onboard a ship ! The extra large patio doors of the living room open on a deck and a magnificient view of Thatcher Island and its Twin Lights. Plus, the cottage is only minutes away from either Gloucester and Rockport. It's central location is perfect to visit all the interesting spots on Cape Ann. The interior of the cottage is comfortable and accurately presented in the photos.
If you are looking for a calm and quiet place centrally located, this cottage is for you. We will definitely return and we warmly recommend it.

A bit of Heaven on Earth
One of the most tranquil, attractive settings for a shore cottage. The view is spectacular from inside or outside.
We are so grateful to have the opportunity to spend a week at this comfortable cottage.
We have rented this house many times over the years. It's a very special place. The house is clean and comfortable and perfect for a family vacation. The view is fantastic and so is the location. There are lots of beaches, nice places to walk, shops and restaurants close by.
I would highly recommend this house.
Absolutely Fabulous !
Our family has been staying at Eden Rock for the better part of the last decade. Prior to staying here we used to stay across the street at the former Rocky Shores cabins. We always admired this property when we stayed at RS, but always thought it was "out of reach". When Rocky Shores went "condo" we finally made contact with the owner of this beautiful property. I wish we had done that sooner!
There are so many positive things to say about this property:
#1 Location: Where ever you are coming from, chances are it is not as beautiful as this place.
#2 Location: Sitting on the sea deck, watching the tide come in, or go out, with the twin lights of Thacher's Island right in front of you is a wonderful thing. Sitting on the sea deck watching a full moon come up between the lighthouses is surreal.
#3 Location: There are beaches for all personalities within a short walk of Eden Rock. If you want an almost private beach experience there is the adjacent cove (loblolly). Pebble beach is not too crowded. Cape Hedge beach is more traditional, and usually has a lifeguard. Beyond Cape Hedge (but still walkable) is Long Beach, where you will find thousands of people who drove 30+ miles, and paid to park at the same beach you just walked to!
#4 Rockport: Less than 1.5 miles from Eden Rock is the beautiful sea side village of Rockport. There are many shops, restaurants, and historical venues to take in. Doing the slightest bit of research will reveal many interesting things to do and see (hint: Sandy Bay Historical Society)
#5 Cape Ann: Even though I can find no real reason to ever leave the confines of the beautiful Eden Rock property, sometimes we go to Gloucester, or even take the train in Rockport to Boston (40 minute trip)
#6 The property owner is there. This is a positive, because the owner is a fantastic person, who wants nothing more than for you to have an enjoyable vacation! If you have a question about anything, she is there. If you want complete privacy, she is completely respectful.
I can not say enough about Eden Rock. My family will continue to take our vacation there for as long as it is available to us. It is the defining moment of our year. We refer to things as "before Rockport, and after Rockport"
EEN WEINIG BEETJE GESCHIEDENIS (indien geïnteresseerd) en wat toeristische informatie--
Rockport trekt al sinds 1606 bezoekers toen de Franse ontdekkingsreiziger Samuel de Champlain op een van zijn oevers landde wat nu Whale Cove wordt genoemd.
Bear Skin Neck- het stadscentrum (op 3,2 km van de huisjes). Volgens de legende kreeg het kleine schiereiland zijn naam nadat een beer door het getij werd gevangen en in 1700 werd gedood. Langs de kleine wegen zijn er leuke stukken van de oude vissers en kreeft-mannen krotten die geleidelijk zijn veranderd in een toeristische attractie van restaurants, winkels en galeries.
Je adembenemende uitzicht op de Twin Lighthouses van Thatcher's Island, vernoemd naar Anthony Thatcher, een Engelsman wiens schip, de Watch and Wait, in 1635 op een woeste storm nabij het eiland op weg naar Marblehead uit Ipswich was gesloopt, was ooit de eerste aanlanding van stoomschepen uit Engeland op weg naar Boston en New York. Alleen hij en zijn vrouw hebben het overleefd. Het eiland is nu een populaire kajakbestemming en heeft tweewekelijkse boottochten vanaf de haven van de stad.
Het nieuwe Shalin Liu Performance Center van Rockport Music, dat gerenommeerde klassieke en popartiesten presenteert.
The Gloucester Stage Company mede-oprichter van het winnen van toneelschrijver Israel Horovitz biedt professionele casts en toneelstukken gedurende het zomerseizoen.
Verschillende grote stranden bevinden zich in de stadsgrenzen en nog meer in het naburige Gloucester.
Bear Skin Neck-bars, restaurants, winkels en kunstgalerijen.
Minder dan 1 uur rijden naar Boston en / of kies de schilderachtige route met de snelle en frequente treinverbinding naar het Noordstation van Boston en MBTA (metro) vanaf het eigen depotstation van Rockport. 1 uur naar Boston, 30 minuten naar Salem.
