About Jonathan H.

We are Jon and Ellie and we welcome you to be our guests at The James Gott Homestead. I was born and raised on the North Shore while Ellie was raised in coastal Maine. We have lived and traveled throughout the United States but we have always been drawn back to the beautiful town of Rockport MA.

Jonathan H. purchased this barn in 2015

Why Jonathan H. chose Rockport

After spending almost two years searching for the right property we were shown the James Gott Homestead in the dead of winter and we fell in love. Drawing on the experiences we had renting vacation homes for our family over the years we tried to design the "best " summer vacation rental. We have renovated two of the four units into beautiful, luxury comfortable family vacation rentals. Two different buildings each with its own unique charm and character but each very Rockport.

What makes this barn unique

This is a very unique home. We are located right downtown on the 4th of July parade route yet, we have a beautiful flower filled back yard that is a very peaceful and tranquil oasis. This unit has two off street parking spaces. We have two beautiful sandy beaches less than a half mile stroll from your back door, we provide a cart for beach chairs coolers and other beach necessities. There is also a parking pass for Long Beach and Cape Hedges Beach.

Great space, and wonderful owners!

  • 5 of 5

The carriage house is a great space for families to gather, and John and Ellie are terrific owners. We had an issue with the in-house laundry and they jumped on repairs immediately. Being an older structure, this rental is perhaps best for people who know each other well -- you can hear everything between floors -- and the living/dining/kitchen on the first floor are a bit tight for a group especially during bad weather when you can't access the beautiful back yard. Otherwise, super clean, well-equipped, walking distance to everything and the best owners ever make this an excellent choice!

Lovely vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

We had a very pleasant stay over Labor Day weekend at this very nice home. Lovely garden and neighborhood and a very nice short walk to shops and restaurants. The home was very clean with everything you could possibly need . Our family enjoyed our stay very much.

Everything about this property and experience was perfect. The house fit a family of 6 (with three teenagers!) easily and comfortably. The house was impeccable and had everything that we could want. There was one little glitch and it was met with rapid correction and immediate communication. The house is walk able to town which made meals easy. Front beach is close, but we found we loved the quick drive to Long Beach more. We so loved our experience at this house and this town. We will be back!!

Great Place and Location

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have been coming to Rockport regularly for years now, and this was the first time we have stayed at the Gott Carriage House. Immaculate, fun layout, ocean views, and beautiful gardens. And best of all is the location within walking distance to town. Highly recommended.

A beautiful home in a charming setting

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time that we stayed at the James Gott Carriage House. Everything was just as perfect as our first stay last summer. Jonathan and Ellie have thought of everything that could possibly be needed, great wi-fi, extra blankets, etc, and a beach pass which is not always part of a vacation rental, but is great to have when you have teen-agers looking for surf.

The location is just what we needed also. We could go to the beach and then walk down to Bearskin Neck and have an ice cream cone and a little shopping after supper.

The fire pit set-up was also a great addition this year and the garden was beautiful.

I hope to be back for a third vacation next year. We were sorry to have to leave!

Great property, convenient location, quintessential New England town

  • 5 of 5

A well maintained property that ideally suited our two couples and visiting guests. Great common space for group gatherings both inside and outside. Really enjoyed the fire table and the BBQ for grilling the fresh fish from Roy Moore’s. All the amenities one would expect from a well stocked house with the only disappointment being no proper coffee pot. Pardon our Seattle bias, but we brought our own ground coffee in hopes of brewing fresh coffee each morning but found only a Keureg machine. Problem was solved by purchasing a pour over set up from one of the local purveyors which we left behind for future renters to enjoy. Highly recommend this property. Host was very responsive and everything promised was delivered.
