The Robert House
Enjoy the comforts of modern day living while you step back in time in this updated colonial-era vacation rental home. From the moment you turn the brass door knob, which is original to the house, you will feel steeped in history.
Filled with light from the large windows throughout, and with 4 bedrooms and 1 full bath, the house comfortably sleeps 7. The Robert House is steps from everything in the Village of Rockport including the picturesque working harbor and one of America’s most favored art subjects, the red fishing shack of Motif #1.
While in the spacious dining room (with seating for 8), marvel at the original fireplace (decorative only) and mantel, imagining the stories that could be told if only they could talk! As you enter into the eat-in kitchen, you are immediately transported back into the 21st century with the beautiful, bright updated design complete with all the modern appliances.
At the front of the house, the cozy living room welcomes you after a long day at the beach to relax in good company or to enjoy the new flat screen television. The first floor is completed by a full bathroom with a tub and shower. The second floor has four uniquely-designed bedrooms providing plenty of space for the whole family to come and enjoy. All four bedrooms are equipped with window air conditioner units.
The Robert House is well-situated to enjoy all that Cape Ann has to offer. Enjoy the pristine beaches by taking a short walk to Old Garden Beach, Front Beach, or Back Beach. Or revel in the charm of Rockport by exploring the local shops, art galleries and restaurants on Bear Skin Neck and the surrounding historic lanes. If you need a rest and prefer a day of relaxing at the house, the large, lush backyard is a feature that is not often found with this convenient in-town location. There is off-street parking for two cars next to the house, and also plenty of metered parking nearby. This is the perfect Rockport getaway for sun and fun!
Please note: Adding to the charm of this traditional colonial home is its original staircase. These stairs are narrow and should be noted by those with small children or mobility restrictions.
