Highlight of our trip!

What a wonderful place to stay in Rockport. Everything was beautiful and the Levesques were so accommodating and helpful. My only complaint was that I didn't stay longer!

Charming property. Very well equipped.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Motif #2. It's comfortable, warm, private, tastefully decorated and and as stated, very well equipped. It's position is perfect being only a couple of minutes drive to the centre of Rockport or if you prefer, a pleasant 15-20 minute stroll. We can recommend Motif #2 wholeheartedly.

Amazing place

  • 5 of 5

My mom and I spent 4 nights at Motif #2 and we absolutely LOVED it! The house was wonderfully cozy, and we wished we had spent more time at the house and in the town. All of the dishes and appliances in the kitchen were wonderful and of good quality (not something you find in all vacation rentals). The abundance of windows, the deck, and the high ceiling in the house made the house so welcoming and enjoyable. We highly recommend staying here, and we look forward to returning in the future.

The perfect retreat

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just spent a few days in Rockport staying at Motif #2 and we wish we had stayed an entire week. What an absolutely charming little cottage! The view off the large back porch is gorgeous, you have a direct view of the water. The studio was well appointed with all of the appliances and amenities we needed. The bed is comfortable, the bathroom is newly updated and very clean. It's a scenic and relatively short walk into downtown Rockport (15 mins) and you pass by several beaches and some fascinating old homes.

Everything about our stay was perfect and we're glad we found this place. Sally and Frank were wonderful to work with and have done an excellent job. We will be coming back, as Rockport is now our new favorite getaway.
