Granite Courtyard: Charming home in Rockport with private deck and views!

This imaginatively decorated home, charmingly located in Rockport's quaint Pigeon Cove neighborhood, is built on the site of a former ox barn, to create a unique vacation retreat. The property, adjacent to the owner's home, opens onto an unusual granite courtyard that is shared with the owners. A second entrance with a private driveway is located on the other side of the house, just off a quiet lane. Here, a grassy lawn with two lounge chairs, other seating, and some ocean views is exclusively for the use of Granite Courtyard guests. From there, walk up eleven steps to a private deck with ocean views or walk down the lane to Granite Pier for unsurpassed views of the Atlantic and fabulous sunrises, or just enjoy the pleasure and fishing boats moored nearby. The open plan living/dining room with its high ceilings provides a perfect backdrop for the owner's colorful paintings. Although the cottage is on a well-traveled road, it affords plenty of peace and privacy. No smoking in house or on deck. Please note that if you plan on having more than two people stay at the property, please notify your reservationist so that appropriate steps may be taken to accommodate your request.

2 Weeks at Granite Courtyard
A guest from Bethesda, MD recommends this property.
Stayed for 14 days in July, 2014
Comfortably furnished, well equipped, it felt like home the minute I walked in. The owner was always helpful. The location was perfect - near the ocean and easy walking distance to Rockport.

Great Vacation Stay
Russell S. from Stottville, NY recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in August, 2012
Granite Courtyard is a charming apartment just off Granite Pier. It's a pleasant one mile walk to Bearskin Neck and less than that to beaches. Our only complaint was early morning road noise from Boston-bound commuters. That minor quibble aside, it was a great place to stay with a helpful but unobtrusive host. We appreciated the washer/dryer and comfortable bed.

Perfect For A Couple

Close to everything, but far away enough to enjoy the quiet. Yes you'll hear the cars going by, but there's no place on Cape Ann where you wont.

We love being near our many life-long friends, and the access to a place to launch our kayaks at Granite Pier was a great bonus.

We're glad you had such a wonderful stay! Cape Ann truly does radiate natural beauty, and the kayaking is incredible, as this area has many coves, harbors, and islands to explore. We hope you got to see one of the harbor seals that call this area home! Thank you for choosing Atlantic Vacation Homes, and we hope to serve you again!

Granite Courtyard
A guest from Glasgow, Scotland, UK does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 27 days in July, 2011
This house is ideally situated for those who like to walk. It is within walking distance of the main shopping centre in Rockport,the beaches and the train station,which provides cheap transport to various destinations.The house itself was exceptionally clean and tidy. The fittings are a bit "tired" and could do with upgrading but are in perfect working order. It is very small.The owners stay next door (the properties are joined together) and are extremely helpful whilst remaining unobtrusive

Granite Courtyard has a special charm and is in a wonderful location. It is compact but the high ceilings, the courtyard and the deck give the impression of extra space. We look forward to having you "cross the pond" again to our beautiful Cape Ann!

They need a better can opener and paring knife. It would be nice to have a newer model microwave suspended under the shelf, to provide more counter space. Minor considerations, in all.

Great Location - Perfect getaway for two!
A guest from Annville, PA recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in July, 2010
We husband and I loved the property.....there was nothing that wasn't thought of re: amenities. Peaceful despite main road in front, property owner next door VERY helpful and unintrusive. We'd stay here again in a minute! Lovely week's stay and a short walk to downtown, shopping. Some of the furniture could use some updating in LR -& the water views that you see on website are absent with all of the trees.....but other than that! Perfect! We'd highly recommend it!

Feedback on Granite Court Yard Property
A guest from Boca Raton, FL does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 21 days in July, 2009
The basics of the property are o.k. Noise - proximity to the road does not make for quiet time. The strong smell of mildew/mold inside the property did not make for a pleasant stay. While the property manager was as helpful as he could be, he could not change the smell inside the unit. We would not rent the property in the future. We usually refrain from recommending/not recommending places where we have rented in the past. That is not an issue. Thanks.

Stayed for 7 days in September, 2008
A wonderful place -- small, but it seemed spacious. On main road, but not noisy at all. Owner was very helpful, even printing out information re the museum in Salem for us. It was too chilly to enjoy the deck & yard, but it's lovely with a water view from the deck. Very easy to get around from this location. It's close to grocery, pharmacy, etc. Also, very close to downtown Rockport. The place was spotless, & the owner's art certainly added to the ambience. Everything you'd need is included, even a washer & dryer. We really enjoyed our stay, & would recommend it to friends.

A guest from Hudson, NY recommends this property.
Stayed for 8 days in September, 2008
We could not have been more comfortable in the lovey and hospitable surroundings that the Granite Courtyard offered. The house was meticulously clean and the owner was very gracious. It was the perfect escape. A place to sit by the water, walk into Rockport, or drive to the most adorable little towns. We ate the most incredible seafood on the private deck and the kitchen was fully equipped. Just bring your clothes, great food, wine and unwind! We look forward to our next stay.

Need to trim some branches for a clearer view. Otherwise, It was a great place to stay. The owners were quite lovely and very helpful. They gave us our privacy unless we asked them to join us in a cocktail in the courtyard or on the grounds. Great paintings in the cottage. Would consider returning in the future.

Great Spot, Great Retreat
A guest from Sherman Oaks, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in June, 2008
Sandy and Kay have created a cozy, comfortable, wonderful New England retreat. The house is clean, well-furnished and joyously atmospheric. Deck, yard and deck/lawn furniture are wonderful. There is much to see in Cape Ann, but we found ourselves drawn simply to stay here and read. When we did go out, it was often on foot (beautiful 10-20 minute seacoast walk to town and Bearskin Neck). The only negative: Traffic noise is definitely noticeable.

Property Manager Response:
Thank you for taking the time to complete the satisfaction survey and for your thoughtful comments. Our guests' feedback is important to both the staff and our homeowners. We are pleased to hear that you had a wonderful stay at "Granite Courtyard" and hope you will consider Atlantic Vacation Homes again in coming seasons.
