This property was comfortable and in a gorgeous neighborhood. It has history and charm and plenty of room. we were a family of seven and the dining room table was nice and big. deck and view was the best! kids played in the yard and flew kites. the big rock in the front was there favorite!
Thank you Debbie for your generous review. All of you were wonderful guests- any host would be lucky to have you.
Absolutely beautiful with spectacular views
Beautiful eclectic ocean view home with gorgeous antiques and beautiful large deck to watch sunrise and twin lighthouses. Property beautifully landscaped. A walk away from gorgeous ocean cliffs and beaches and just a small drive away from a unique shopping village and extraordinary eateries. Cutty is simply a wonderful woman and caring hostess. Amazing experience.
Thank you Marsley for your kind words. It was a joy having all of you at the Elmador! Wonderful guests in every way. Hoping you will return again.
All the best, Cutty
A LITTLE BIT OF HISTORY (if interested) and some tourist info--
Rockport has attracted visitors since 1606 when French explorer Samuel de Champlain landed on one of its shores what is now called Whale Cove.
Bear Skin Neck- the town center (2 miles away from the cottages). Legend has it that the small peninsula got its name after a bear was caught by the tide and killed in 1700. Along its small roads there are quaint stretches of old fishermen and lobster-men shacks that have gradually been turned into a tourist attraction of restaurants, shops and galleries.
Your breathtaking view of the Twin Lighthouses of Thatcher’s Island, named for Anthony Thatcher, an Englishman whose vessel, the Watch and Wait, was wrecked in a ferocious storm near the island in 1635 on its way to Marblehead from Ipswich, was once the first landfall of steamer ships from England heading for Boston and New York. Only he and his wife survived. The island is now a popular kayaking destination and has biweekly boat trips from the town port.
Rockport Music’s new Shalin Liu Performance Center, which presents renowned classical and pop artists.
The Gloucester Stage Company co-founded by winning playwright Israel Horovitz offers professional casts and plays throughout the summer season.
Several large beaches are located in the town limits and still more in neighboring Gloucester.
Bear Skin Neck- Bars, Restaurants, Shops, and Art Galleries.
