This waterfront vacation rental is a wonderful inviting family vacation home with bountiful space, located in the highly desirable area of "The Avenues" at the northern end of Rockport. Boasting 5 bedrooms/3.5 baths and the ability to comfortably sleep 12 people, this is a house to bring the extended family to gather and relax in a lovely, serene waterfront setting. Point de Chene is perfectly located for biking and walking and enjoying the stunning ocean views. This historic home has a welcoming feel, with many large gathering areas in which to enjoy the company and the beautiful surroundings. Choose to enter via the formal front door (which has a ramp entrance, helpful to those with mobility issues) into the great room which boasts two stunning stone fireplaces (one wood burning and the other gas), multiple sitting and gaming areas, and a flat screen TV, all overlooking the vast yard and ocean.
The huge sun porch is a more modern addition and has become the most-used room of the house with spectacular water views, and the perfect additional eating and gathering space. From this room the large, flat waterfront back yard can be accessed, with the slate patio at the water's edge. Completing the main floor of the house is a formal dining room with a table that seats 10 with ease and another gorgeous stone fireplace, a moderately sized kitchen (with a small table, dishwasher and gas range) and pantry area. There is a half bath, and full sized stacked washer and drier. Up the grand, turning staircase is the second floor which has 5 bedrooms (3 with water views) and 3 more full baths. Please note that there is one queen bedroom, with the rest of the rooms having double or single beds (or a combination thereof). Come to Rockport and enjoy the beauty and serenity of Andrew's Point. Bring your bike and/or kayak and take off!
The coast in front of the house is rocky, but on calm days, strong swimmers can swim from the rocks, or launch a kayak if you so choose (with caution--there are more gradual launching spots down the street). Enjoy long walks along the Atlantic Path, which is directly in front of the house and takes you on a waterfront hike in either direction, around the coastline. The village of Rockport is about 2 miles from the house and offers a myriad of shops, galleries, restaurants and a world class performing arts center. There are also 3 beaches to choose from: Front Beach, Back Beach and Old Garden Beach. The commuter rail to Boston, Salem and Newburyport is another wonderful way to get to the other attractions in the area. Pointe De Chene awaits! If you need additional space to sleep more than 12 people, Mon Altre Cove House, a 6 bedroom/3.5 bath home, which sleeps 10 people, and is just a few doors up the street - and if you rent both, over 20 people can be accommodated.
