Extended family of 12 ranging in age from 1 to 70 . We have been spoiled and every other vacation will be compared to Beach & King. Great having all our own bathrooms. The kitchen was well stocked and the eating area a perfect size for all of us. The parlor table was great for jigsaw puzzles. The front porch was good for coffee in the morning, cocktails at night and a great playpen for the 1 year old. Easy walk to beach, shops, restaurants and take out lobster dinners. Never got in a car until Friday to go see a lighthouse. Highly recommend!

Loved It!!!

  • 5 of 5
House was fabulous! Location is great for walking around town or just sitting on the porch looking at the beautiful view. We had 15 of our family together and everyone loved it! We fixed several meals and the kitchen had everything we needed. The dining room table was big enough that our entire family could enjoy meals together.

Thanks Tim and Laurie!

Great house, great location, great hosts!

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed at Beach and King for the last 3 years and have thoroughly enjoyed it. The house is very nicely furnished, well maintained, and clean. The layout of the rooms make it great for our large family to gather together but also provides space for us to be separate when we want to be. The kitchen is modern and very well stocked. Love the front porch too! Tim and Laurie couldn't be nicer or more accommodating as hosts. The location is perfect - right across from the beach and a short walk to town. We are going back this year and can't wait! Highly recommend.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
In August, our family had a wonderful vacation in Rockport, Mass. Our visit was definitely enhanced by staying for one week at the Beach & King Beach House. The photos were a great representation and the property was very clean and well maintained. The owners seemed to have anticipated our needs beautifully with plentiful linens and a fully equipped kitchen--certainly comfortable for a family of 14!!! The layout of the house AND THE PORCH accommodated our family to a tee. We loved being able to not only walk to the beach but to the town. We would love to return in the future and would not want to stay anywhere else but the Beach & King!

Beach and King

  • 5 of 5
My family and I have stayed at the Beach and King home 2 times in the past 3 years. Each time was wonderful!! The house is exactly as described. It is very well decorated with the great New England Coastal theme. The bedrooms are very nice and spacious with very comfortable beds. Bathrooms are very clean. The rooms were exactly as described in their listings. Tim and Laurie are very good at making sure your stay at the home is everything you wanted it to be. The location of the home is great. Rockport is one of the most quaint New England towns I have visted. You are within walking distance of downtown Rockport, Wonderful resturants and lovely shops. If you are a photograher you have one of the best places to snap away.
My family and I would recmmend The Beach and King to anyone who is looking for that wonderful laid back New England experience. The day we had to depart and come back to Tennessee we were already planning our trip here in 2014 to stay with Tim and Laurie (they are like family now)

From the Owner

Across from Front Beach,the Beach & King is just a few minutes’ walk from the village center and its many seafood restaurants, art galleries and unique shops. Any time at all...our porch is the place for people watching, beach watching and just enjoying the ocean breeze. Here you will also find rocking chairs and beach chairs, beach umbrella, and a hose just for you to wash the sand off your toes. And for those rainy or cool days, relax and enjoy the Main Room overlooking the beach. Read a good book or sketch and photograph the beautiful landscape.
