This utterly sweet vacation rental cottage overlooking Rockport's beautiful Folly Cove has all modern amenities but maintains the ambiance of the year 1805, when it was built. A thoughtful eye has preserved the property's historical integrity while adding modern comforts.

Bright and sunny, the cottage has 3 bedrooms (with window air conditioning units in the two upstairs bedrooms), 2 sitting areas and one bathroom with a shower. There is a lovely yard with picnic table and parking for two cars.

Walk across the street to Folly Cove and enjoy the view from the shared deck (furnished), then follow the path down to the water?s edge for a refreshing swim on a hot day. For the full waterfront experience, ask us about renting a Kayak or Stand-Up Paddleboard through Atlantic Vacation Homes. Pets are also welcome for an additional fee.

This is the sister cottage to Happy Days Cottage -- both cottages may be rented together for larger groups (together they accommodate 12 people).

Property Reviews 
Private deck overlooking Folly Cove
Christopher P. from deerfield, MA recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in June, 2018
Our second time at Cove View since we enjoyed it very much last time---will likely go visit again. Very kind and pleasant landlord adjacent to property. LOVE having my early morning coffee & reading across the street on the private deck in a wooded area---nice way to start any day, even if raining, since the deck is partially covered.

Little Gem!
Natalie W. from Barnoldswick, LAN recommends this property.
Stayed for 10 days in August, 2017
Cove view cottage is a little gem in our view. We had an amazing 10 day stay here in August and didn't want to leave. The cottage was built in 1805 and has amazing character! Very quirky and certainly unique. If you want a modern property this is not for you but we loved it for its character. The house has all that you need including laundry facilities 2 doors away. It has all the facilities you need which includes internet and tv for teenagers, beautiful gardens and BBQ, stunning veranda and decking across the road with absolutely beautiful views. The sea can be accessed across some rocks and although cold-it is a must! We sat every night watching the fishing boats, wildlife, sunsets, and just loved it! There is a driveway to park vehicles. Everything was clean on arrival. Air conditioning units worked well. Andrew and Mary who own this property live 2 doors away and were wonderful hosts. It was an honour to meet them both. They really looked after us and we really appreciated getting to know them. The cottage is not far from rockport and Gloucester and all major routes to explore this beautiful location. You can catch a train from rockport into Boston which just takes over an hour. Whale watching trips can be taken in Gloucester only 15 minutes away by car. You can walk to nearby quaries too. We hope that we can come back one day to stay here. We all had a fabulous time and thank Mary and Andrew for using AVH to allow us to rent it. If you get the chance stay here. It might be quirky but hopefully you'll love it like we did!

Great location!
Louis-Philippe B. from Lachute, QC recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in July, 2017
This little house is well situated, the deck on the water side is trully the best asset of this house. The downside would be the price, as the house is small and would need some work done, especially by changing the windows.

8-day stay at Cove View Cottage
Katrina S. from San Francisco, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 8 days in August, 2016
The location of the cottage is not on the ocean side of the street. However directly on the ocean side is a very lovely cabana. Because parking permits are required at beaches, it was wonderful to have plenty of parking for us and guests at the cottage. One can walk to the rocky beach at Folly Cove where we swam, to Halibut State Park and to the Lobster Pool which is very popular.

Stay at Cove View Cottage
Sara H. from Warrington, ENG recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in August, 2016
We had a fantastic week. Rockport and the wider area are absolutely lovely and the beaches are great. We went to Cape Cod the previous week but we preferred Rockport. The restaurants were very good and the quality of the meals we had was much better than any we had in Cape Cod which we were surprised at. It's a good base to get out and about, for example we drove to Salem one day (about half an hour a way) and also caught the train into Boston (just over an hour each way). It's only an hour from the JFK Presidential Library/Museum. The cost of parking for the beaches is similar to Cape Cod(circa $20 a day) but there is a park and ride in Rockport which was free to park and $1 per person each way on the "trolley" so we did this for most of our beach days. Rockport is a dry town though there is no problem buying alcohol in the restaurants with a meal, it does however mean there are no bars. The big supermarket, Shaws, had a liquor store next door (this is just into Gloucester but only 5 minutes drive from Rockport). Recycling was difficult in Rockport but Cove View Cottage is literally on the Gloucester border so you can leave your trash in a purple bag & your recycling out to the left of the house and its collected by the Gloucester trash/recycling truck on Thursdays.

Quaint and artistic summer cottage
Louise L. from Croton on Hudson, NY recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in August, 2015
We enjoyed our stay in this charming historic cottage decorated with the owner's beautiful paintings. Well-equipped, comfortable furniture, lots of outdoor seating and tables, and best of all, the deck across the street perched on the rocks is perfect for relaxing and enjoying the ocean view. The very nice owner who we met briefly dropped off garden tomatoes for us and quickly fixed the bathroom doorknob that had fallen off when we mentioned it to him.Realtor web site and app made all details and check in very easy.

Quaint Cottage with Breathtaking Views
A guest from Skillman, NJ recommends this property.
Stayed for 14 days in August, 2015
Had an incredibly relaxing vacation in this historic cottage. So cute, so quaint, surrounded by beautiful artwork! The backyard was the perfect size for a family birthday party! The best part, by far, was the deck across the street! The views, the sunsets, the lobster boats, jumping off the rocks into Folly Cove- it was very difficult to leave!! Deano the dog loved it, too! Woof-woof!

A visit in May
A guest from Carlisle, PA recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in May, 2015
The cottage was a delightful place to stay. We wanted somewhere near the water as we visited Salem and Boston. Across the street there is a deck with a tremendous view and access to climb on the rocks lining the shoreline. The cottage is quaint and comfortable. It was cold at night during our visit in May. There were space heaters that helped keep the bedrooms warm through the night. Otherwise, it was cold. The kitchen is small, but has the basic equipment needed if you plan to cook. Bring all the basics with you. There were no condiments, coffee, sugar....provided. The Wifi was weak and inconsistent particularly with cell phones. Our service with Verizon was spotty. Rockport and Glouchster are wonderful towns to explore. The Cape Ann Whale watch was very worthwhile. Check out Groupon for tickets. Would Highly reccommend eating at Sea Level in Salem on Pickering Wharf. Fabulous meal and view sitting on the open air deck. If you are late night folks remember you are in a more remote area. Gas stations and food places close early. Thank you for sharing your cottage with us.

A Little Piece of Heaven
Liz M. from South Orange, New Jersey recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in July, 2014
We had a lovely week at Cove Cottage. The setting was beautiful and convenient for all we wanted to do. We liked being at the northern part of Cape Ann within walking distance to Halibut Point and Lanesville, both favorite destinations. The cottage was quaint and homey and perfect for our family group of 5 which included our first grandson. The property is lovely with a spectacular view of Folly Cove from its deck across the street. We enjoyed sitting there at different times of the day watching the ducks and snorklers. I would highly recommend this lovely spot!

The cottage is lovely....hardly luxurious but doesn't pretend to be. Sweet, friendly neighbors. A short walk to a majestic, beautiful view with a magnificent sunset! We had a relaxing, quiet vacation and that is what we hoped for. Would love to go again!

Best holiday cottage experience in 14 years.
Chris P. from Deerfield, MA recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in July, 2013
Very impressed with the level of courtesy and professionalism of both AVH Reality and our landlord.The cottage is quaint and historic, with all of the "mod cons"---modern conveniences---to include a/c, WiFi and Direct TV (although we didn't turn it on all week). The property's deck across the street overlooking beautiful, quiet Folly Cove is heaven first thing in the morning with a cup of coffee---or anytime actually. This is a wonderful place to stay and we hope to return.

Has to be renewed urgently
Reviewed by: Ursula F. does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 7 days in July, 2013
This property could be very nice, but it has to be renewed. The house smells really bad and the bathroom is a horror. The aircondition is so loud, that you can`t sleep in the night and it doesn`t really cool down. The only happening, that makes things come better, is the owner of the house. He is very nice. I`m really upset about your agency and I will no more book via Atlantic Home. I also told my american friends about it. For this amount we have got a wonderful airconditioned house with another realty agency.

Home with charachter in spades and perfect for family of five.
A guest from Littleton, CO recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in July, 2012
Coming from Colorado we were thrilled with all the nuances of this adorable 207 year old home...hand-hewn beams, original artwork, many built in bookcases. The interior looked like a professional decorator had picked out the pillows and bedspreads. We loved our own private path down to Folly Cove where our three boys enjoyed playing on the rocks and finding shrimp and crabs. With one king size bed and three twins, it's perfect for a family of five.
