The SpaceLarge apartment on entire first floor of home on quiet sidestreet in Rockport village. Quick stroll to Shalin Liu Performing Arts Center for world-class music with splendid Sandy Bay as backdrop; historic Main Street with its many colorful art galleries; pristine beaches with the clearest, cleanest water in New England; sea kayak rental to tour the magnificent Cape Ann coast; or rugged single track mountain bike trails in ancient Dogtown forest. Wake up and take your coffee on the porch, stroll out the door to drop a postcard at the post office, walk another block to Front Beach to watch terns and plovers wheel overhead as the sun rises over Sandy Bay and you gather colorful bits of 200-year old sea glass and crockery. Later, amble along Main Street to the shops and restaurants of Dock Square and Bearskin Neck and watch the lobster boats depart from Tuna Wharf for the catch you will eat later that night.

The active visitor may wish to rent a kayak and paddle out to Thatcher Island to visit the Twin Lights, one of the few double lighthouses still in operation and a national landmark; or go hiking along the massive granite outcroppings at Halibut Point State Park, where the sea spray and breeze freshen even the hottest summer day.

The SpaceOkay...this house is not for the squeamish. It is a country cottage w/ cobwebs, occasional mice, dust, etc. The furnishings are old and a little tattered, having been occupied by some of Boston's most famous artists for decades. While hygienic, it is not "deeply clean," to be honest. What it is, is one of the most private properties on Cape Ann. No touristas for as far as the eye can see. What it has is access to the only private 6.5 acre swimming quarry on the Cape. All our Tony neighbors in-town just wish they had membership...they don't. What it has is direct access to miles of walking and biking trails. What it has is walking distance access to front beach and downtown Rockport. What it has is 360+ years of history. Again, this is like a backwoods hunting lodge with nicer linens. You will be greeted and well supported, but this is a domain for grown-ups. We don't preclude children, but there are no electronic diversions here. Pets are welcome lest they have a proclivity to chew things not otherwise edible. There is artwork in the house worth more than the house in dollars, and far more in memories. We love sharing our hideaway with folks who can appreciate for what it is. If our description suits your tastes and expectations, please contact us. Guest AccessGuests have access to the entire house and a gas grill. Interaction with GuestsTypically like to greet the guests and get them settled in, and then leave. The NeighborhoodNo tourists. Completely private. Pull up the chain and lock off the world on your own 6 acres. Not T-shirt vendors. No bad art. Some really great art (not for sale.) Wet suits available for adults. Getting AroundYou can walk into town. Bring your bikes and ride for days on roads or trails.

The SpaceApplecart Farm is one of the most private residential properties in Rockport. Our property is surrounded by close to 2000 acres of protected woodlands and miles of trails, but is only a 5 minute walk to the train station and 10 minute walk to downtown Rockport. Guest AccessThe guests will have access to the entire Dogtown cabin and the surrounding woods, and miles of secluded walking trails that start directly from our property. The host's house has a small personal swimming pool behind their house and due to liability (and privacy purposes) we need to inform you ahead of time that guests will not be allowed in the pool. Many people who stay at the cabin never even know we have a pool due due the privacy around this property. Interaction with GuestsOur house is approximately 250 feet from the Dogtown cabin. We will be here to greet guests and provide any assistance you many need. We are happy to share time with our horses and dogs and share our knowledge of the local flora and fauna, restaurant recommendations and things to do. The NeighborhoodWe love the fact that we are 100% surrounded by protected woodlands, a rocky stream and wildlife. We hear owls and other wildlife almost every night. Great location for nature lovers and those looking for peaceful retreat. There are approximately 10 different public beaches all located less than a 20 minute drive from the Dogtown Cabin. Getting AroundAt the bottom of our long driveway is where you can pick up train to Boston or bus service around Cape Ann. Most of Rockport is walkable from the cabin.

The SpaceThe CORNERed IN is located in a private court yard and designed for those wanting to get away from it all – there is no TV – but we have Internet so break out your sketch pad, or i-pad or just catch up on your summer reading. There is a fireplace for those cool summer eves. Although the bathroom is tiny there is a full tub with shower, a kitchenette for light cooking, a full size bed, and a deck to hang on with table and chairs... Super cozy and a perfect escape for romance. Also, free on street parking and meter parking is free from 6:00 p.m. To 10:00 a.m. April thru November. Inquire about winter parking. For those of you seeking to get away from it all and can cope with a small footprint (250 sq ft) that allows almost everything you need, this might just fit the bill. Neat as a pin, cute as can be - what are you waiting for? If coming by train, we would be happy to pick you up at the station which is about a 15 minute walk. Rockport is on the North Shore, so while visiting take note that we are 10 minutes from our neighboring seaport town Gloucester, 20 minutes from Salem, Boston is 1 hour, and Newburyport 45 minutes. Rockport's commuter rail can take you to all of those locations. Rockport itself is famous for its historic seaport, art galleries, beaches, and beautiful quarries. The new Shalin Liu Performance Center located on Main Street presents musical programs all year. We hope you choose the CORNERed IN while visiting Rockport. Guest AccessPrivate parking space nearby.

The complete house has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, dining room, front & back parlors, kitchen, lovely gardens, small back yard patio. airbnb Guests have a private bedroom & separate private bathroom on the 2nd floor. The airbnb bedroom is approximately 12' x 12' with one queen size bed, and guests have exclusive use of the 2nd floor bathroom next door to the bedroom. The guest airbnb bedroom has a fan and a window air conditioner. I can only accommodate 2 guests, and cannot accommodate children.

And please understand that the airbnb bed & bath are on the 2nd floor - DO NOT BOOK IF YOU HAVE PROBLEMS W/ STAIRS as the bedroom & bath are on the 2nd floor - it is only 14 steps, but if you are elderly or have issues please do not book.

His name is Dewey and he is the love of my life - so NO dogs. If you have allergies, you may have a problem here. He is never allowed in the airbnb bedroom & bathroom so those rooms should not be a problem, but he has use of the rest of the house. My primary concern always is that he doesn't ever get out as we have cat-eating coyotes & fisher cats now on Cape Ann! It's OK - they don't eat people ;) He doesn't ever try to escape - but if a door is left or blows open, he will walk out.
