About the Owner
I really needed a vacation this year so I took two weeks off and stayed at the Rocky Neck Studio Apartment. It was perfect. I could stay low key and relax or paint the town red. The view from the apartment is amazing, night or day. I could walk down the road, maybe 3 minutes, have a cup of coffee and breakfast. There are a number of art galleries to check out, two beaches in walking distance or a 5 minute drive to the bigger one, Niles Beach. Great restaurants, fun shops and beautiful water views. The owners were fantastic. Nothing I requested was a bother. Always accessible, great on suggestions and directions. The apartment was very clean with comfortable sleeping accommodations, a full Kitchen, walk-in closet, there is a table and chairs outside where you look out over the water. I hated to leave.
Perfect Vacation Studio!!!
Lovely studio apartment located in the beautiful artists village on Rocky Neck in Gloucester. Minutes from great beaches, whale watches, fishing and the best restaurants on the North Shore. We spent three wonderful weeks and enjoyed every moment there. The owners are most gracious and wonderful hosts. Looking forward to returning next summer.
This apartment was perfect for what we were looking for, small but well distributed so it doesn't feel crowded. Walking distance from the beach, nice restaurants and galleries, and with an awesome view. The owners made us feel totally welcome giving us the space we needed but being available and helpful when required! I wouldn't stay somewhere else if I am back in the area
We love this place!
This studio is cozy and clean.The perfect place for my husband and I to stay while we visit family in the area. I love waking up in the morning to the beautiful ocean views! Rocky Neck is a great place to visit because of it's many artist galleries and restaurants. We have stayed here a few times and we will continue to do so. It's our home away from home.
Warm and Friendly Visit
We chose to stay here because we were offered a great price and an extra day.
My husband and I were celebrating our 31st Anniversary and we wanted to Explore
Gloucester. We loved staying at this cozy little apt. It was nice being able to cook and relax, outside in their cute bistro style setting outside the apt.(not to mention FULL SUN warming us the entire visit.)
We would recommend this stay to anyone. The Owners were very friendly and we were sad to have to go back to Central NY where it was snowing. It was a Great trip all in all.
Wonderful and relaxing week in a beautiful place
This is a cozy getaway in an idyllic setting!The place is immaculate and up to date and the kitchen is well stocked. You can watch the sunrise from the front step with your morning coffee and then walk 10 minutes or so to a gorgeous beach.
The immediate area has a nice restaurant/bar up the street, an ice cream place across the street, and plenty of galleries to amble through if you like art. Beyond the immediate area it is a short drive into town or to Rockport where there are all kinds of shops, Whale Watches, historic homes and many different types of restaurants.
The owners are very nice and are accessible if you need them but they don't loom. They provided us with spot-on activity and dining recommendations.
It was a great week and we would go back in a heartbeat!
Activity and Interests
Rocky Neck has been called America's oldest working art colony, Gloucester its oldest working seaport. Our apartment is right in the thick of things, a bustling place on a summer weekend evening, contrasting with the serenity of a silent sunrise reflecting on the cove.
Autumn is a spectacular time, less people, great dawns and reflective sunsets. Winter brings a cozy seclusion for a true retreat. Spring sees the earlier bright dawn and the belated budding of trees. Each season offers its own gifts to enjoy.
Connected to the mainland by a causeway, you can circumnavigate Rocky Neck by foot within minutes, not hours. In summer on the Neck you will find many artists' galleries, three seasonal restaurants, a coffee shop and an ice cream parlor, along with a full complement of colorful characters and views. Some galleries are open year-round.
Across the causeway, within easy walking distance, is a convenience store with homemade soups and sandwiches, and the Gloucester Stage Company theater.
A short drive, bike ride or leisurely walk away is Good Harbor Beach, one of the
best-rated beaches in the Boston area.
There are many activities during the summer months, including St. Peter's Fiesta in June, the Horribles parade and fireworks on July 3rd, the sidewalk bazaar, Rocky Neck Beaux Arts Ball and Waterfront Festival in August, and the schooner races over Labor Day weekend, just to name a few.
