A LITTLE BIT OF HISTORY (if interested)
Rockport has attracted visitors since 1606 when French explorer Samuel de Champlain landed on one of its shores what is now called Whale Cove.
Bear Skin Neck- the town center, is 2 miles away from the cottage. Legend has it that the small peninsula is so-named for menacing bears that early settlers routed onto the neck and hunted in 1700. It got its name after a bear was caught by the tide and killed. Along its small roads there are quaint stretches of old fishermen and lobster-men shacks that have gradually been turned into a tourist attraction of restaurants, shops and galleries.
Your breathtaking view of the Twin Lighthouses of Thatcher’s Island, named for Anthony Thatcher, an Englishman whose vessel, the Watch and Wait, was wrecked in a ferocious storm near the island in 1635 on its way to Marblehead from Ipswich, was once the first landfall of steamer ships from England heading for Boston and New York, and is now a popular kayaking destination and has biweekly boat trips from the town port.
Several large beaches are located in the town limits and still more in neighboring Gloucester.
Rockport latest new attraction is Rockport Music’s new Shalin Liu Performance Center, which presents renowned classical and pop artists.
The Gloucester Stage Company co-founded by winning playwright Israel Horovitz.
Fast and frequent train service to Boston is also available.
