Had a lovely stay. The cottage was very cosy and has everything needed. The extra items in case you forgot anything are a great touch. Lovely place to come back to after windy beach walks.

Dear Rose-

This was our 2nd visit to the cottage and loved it here as much as the first time. The cottage has a nice homey feel and is very comfortable, bright, airy and clean. Location is great, just a short walk to Bearskin Neck and also nice to use as a central point for many other places. The Red Skiff is great for breakfast and the Bean & Leaf Café has wonderful muffins and coffee. The Windward Grille in Essex is excellent for dinner. I know we will be back again. Could not have asked for better weather on Saturday. Periwinkle Cottage is a place we would definitely recommend to family and friends. Thank you for your hospitality.

Shark Week in Rockport

  • 5 of 5
Dear Rosemarie-

Day 2: April 12, 2013
I had visited your on-line site for a couple of years and thought it looked inviting. You have made an enchanted living space with a vivid color scheme and soothing art hangings. I very much appreciated living in a well cared for and modern cottage with all the comforts of home rather than with funky 1980s furnishings and colors. It is very pleasing and restive here.

The thoughtfulness of all the little amenities you offer make this place perfect. George and I sat at breakfast asking each other if we brought lotion - alas, Rosemarie had it in the bathroom. Not having to run to the store for small items is more than appreciated.

Day 3: August 13, 2013
Shark swam up into Front Beach - we saw it early in the am, then about 4pm. Two women (one 73, a resident, one about 40) both in black and white polka dot bathing suits were swimming when someone spotted the fin. "Get out of the water" we all shouted and they swam in. Sand shark about 6' came right into shore. The younger women said she kept seeing a shadow underneath her while she was swimming. Harbormaster ferried kids who were on the dock back to shore - quite exciting. Turns out the shark was hurt and trying to dislodge a hook. We like Long Beach and Front Beach so far. Our favorite places to eat are: The Red Skiff for breakfast (cod fish cakes); The Franklin in Gloucester for a perfect meal; Virgillio's for the best Italian sandwich around (try the meatball with roasted peppers); and the Willow Rest on the way to Anisquam, a market specialty shop with the best cook around. The eggplant sandwich is beyond delicious. We did not have a bad meal in Rockport or Gloucester. AND, if you stay at the Periwinkle Cottage, you'll have a refrigerator to keep your leftovers in and a cute gas range to warm them up for when you don't want to go out. A most satisfying stay in every way.

Dear Rose-
We had a wonderful stay at "Periwinkle Cottage" with all the comforts of home!
The cottage gave us a warm and cozy feeling and your attention to details and amenities is commendable.
We could not have picked a better place to stay with everything in walking distance.
We would definitely recommend "Periwinkle Cottage" to our family and friends if they decide to visit Rockport.

Periwinkle Cottage in Rockport, MA is a true gem!

  • 5 of 5
Rose and Guy's Periwinkle Cottage is the loveliest vacation rental in all of Rockport, MA!
A real Cape Ann gem tucked away on quiet, scenic street.

The cottage is immaculate and beautifully decorated with top of the line decor and appliances. The bed and sofa are super comfortable and easily accomodate 4 persons.
And the plush towels and robes and luxurious baths make this a real spa!
It provided very relaxing, comfortable living.

The weather was great and the cottage is a 5 minute walk to town and beach.

We highly recommend this "oasis by the sea" in must see Rockport, MA.
We had the best time ever and will tell our friends and family.

We will definitely come back! Penny and Urs, Westport, CT

Home away from home

August 26, 2012
Periwinkle Cottage became our "home away from home":  comfortable, conveniently located, and cozy!
We made the most of Cape Ann's beautiful setting and filled our days with sandy beaches, whale watching, walks at the quarry and rock climbing. 
Thank you Rose for thinking of everything we may need and having the house stocked.  This has made our vacation as a family relaxing and enjoyable.
