Beyond Perfect

  • 5 of 5

My husband was responsible for planning our honeymoon, and I am so glad he chose this location as our primary destination. Sally and Frank have truly thought of everything for this cottage from dishes to trash bags to towels... My husband and I truly felt like it was our home for the 5 days we were there.

It was also a beautiful location, close to the main attractions of Rockport, but just far enough away that you were still able to get away as well.

Not only was everything there that we needed, but we were also spoiled beyond belief with fresh flowers and snacks awaiting us and an opportunity to go ocean kayaking as well.

Sally and Frank, thank you so so so much for your hospitality. We look forward to visiting Motif 2 again in the future.

Perfect!! Everything was clean, appropriate, and within arms reach.

  • 5 of 5

If you are even considering going to the north east, go to Rockport. If you go to Rockport, stay at this home! The owners are super personable, the property is the perfect size, well appointed, the location is close to town, but not too close. I wish I were poetic, because I would say more! Just take my word for it, you have to stay here, perfect for one person or a couple.

extremely enjoyable, and delightful!

  • 5 of 5

I could not have wished for anything more than this adorable studio. There was such attention to detail and thoughtfulness in how the studio was designed. The owners could not have been nicer. I hope to return next year and stay a little longer.

Great stay in Rockport

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in Rockport! Sally and Francis made us feel very welcome. We found everything we needed in Motif number 2. Sally made sure we were informed of anything going on in town, fireworks, meteor shower, restaurants. The space is perfect for two and is walking distance to downtown. A perfect place to unwind. Thank you for making our stay so wonderful and thank you for the cupcakes!

I would definitely stay here again. The owners provided everything you could want and some things you wouldn't think off. This was a comfortable place with a great view. We will be back,

absolutely a 10. Attention to detail amazing

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this cozy, charming cottage for 10 days. Sally mae and Fran were welcoming and more than accommodating. The location was perfect. Walking distance to an adorable shopping district, commuter train, beach, resturants. Sunrise over the ocean viewed from my breakfast table or fabulous deck.

There was no detail overlooked.

Fully equipped kitchen, toiletries in the bath, beautiful linens and towels, comfortable tv/sitting area and a quiet, peaceful decor.

I highly recommend this magical get away and will surely return
