Wake up looking at the surf crashing on the rocks of Andrew's Point! This large, comfortable home offers fabulous ocean views from three sides, and is the perfect place for a family gathering or quiet retreat. Close to all the amenities of Rockport, yet away from the crowds. Enjoy fishing for striped bass and bluefish on the rocks in front of the house, take a walk along Atlantic Path to Halibut Point State Park, watch from the second-floor wrap-around porch as the lobstermen pull traps, then enjoy a feast of the freshest lobsters from the local cooperative, located just a few minutes from the house. The house is your base for explorations of Cape Ann, with beaches, kayaking, whale watching and shopping among the many attractions.

Your home is wonderful - the view breathtaking, I sure did take advantage of it from the porch. This week will fill some grey winter days with smiles and longing. Our family had a wonderful bonding time filled with joy & love, our surrounding just enhanced the above. Burt Family, Selingsgrove PA.

More sample guest book entries : What a wonderful week! We enjoyed the town of Rockport, the fishing, the lighthouses, the whale watch, the lobster cruise, a day trip to Salem & Boston, beach time, shopping, galleries & morning walks. The best part was sitting together for meals on the 2nd floor porch and soaking in the glorious blue visions that will forever remain in our fondest memories. Thank you for sharing your family paradise with us! Voorhees family, Ithaca NY.
Our family enjoyed your lovely home and appreciated all its fine appointments.

Some more guest book entries : From the 1st time we sat on the 2nd floor porch we knew this vacation was going to be the relaxing haven we were dreaming of! How very sad we all are to have to leave this beautiful spot after only 1 week. We take with us many memories & vivid visions of waves lapping, seagulls chatting, lobstermen hoisting and whales playing. All winter we will dream of morning coffee on the porch! Thank you for such lovely hospitality - we were amazed how you thought of everything - it really was just like being home. We hope to have the honor of returning. The Brams dePerry clan, Doylestown PA.
Well, what can we say?! Your home & its views have stolen our hearts! We hardly left the house! My parents practically lived on the porch and observed the fishing and stars through a telescope. Biking around the neighborhood was beautiful. We did a whale watch & the beach only once-didn't need to go anywhere. Many, many thanks for opening your home. We will be back next Aug! Cheverette family, Northampton
In addition to relaxing on the porch, there are many activities to enjoy in the area at different times of the year. In the fall, enjoy the beautiful foliage and the clear air of Indian Summer. In the winter, avoid the crowds and do all your Christmas shopping in the unique shops and galleries of downtown Rockport. Very relaxing! Andrew's Point is also known as a birder's paradise. Hundreds of Harlequin Ducks winter on the rocks right in front of the house each year. In the summer, you can enjoy the many local beaches, rent a sea kayak, go on a whale watching cruise, fish from the rocks, take a bicycle tour around Cape Ann, visit the fine antique stores in Rockport and Essex, and sample some of the best seafood anywhere in the local restaurants. We provide a vacationer's guide book with updated information about many local activities. We are looking forward to your visit and will do everything possible to make your stay a memorable one.
