This wonderful inviting family vacation home has bountiful space and is located in the highly desirable area of "The Avenues" at the northern end of Rockport. Boasting 6 bedrooms/3.5 baths and the ability to comfortably sleep 11 people, this is a house to bring the extended family to gather and relax in a lovely, quiet area. This a a perfect spot for biking, walking and enjoying the omnipresent ocean views.
The large eat-in kitchen has a dishwasher and microwave as well as washer/dryer. There are two sitting rooms, one with peekaboo water views and the other with a fireplace and TV. Just off the living areas is a large dining area, and also on the main floor are a half bath, single bedroom, and the queen master suite with a new (in 2014) full bath.
The oversized wraparound porch (part of which is screened in) offers plenty of places for relaxing and enjoying the gentle ocean breezes. The second floor has 4 more bedrooms and 2 full baths.
Just across the quiet avenue is a short footpath that leads to the amazing Atlantic Path that meanders for miles over the rocks alongside the ocean. Hardy swimmers can swim and kayak off these rocks; everyone will enjoy some of the most beautiful views on the east coast. Ride or walk about one mile in either direction to visit the picturesque working harbor at Pigeon Cove or the majestic natural beauty of Halibut Point State Park. Only slightly further (2-3 miles) brings you to the sleepy village of Lanesville or into downtown Rockport, with its family-friendly beaches and many shops, restaurants, galleries, and a world-class performing arts center.
Mon Altre could be coupled with nearby vacation home Point de Chene, sleeping up to 20 people in combination -- perfect for family reunions or other gatherings.

Rockport Family Reunion Suzanne N. from West Seneca, NY recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in June, 2014 A happy place to call home for 4 generations of our large family for a long weekend. Plenty of room to spread out on so many porches. Appreciated the easy access to washer and dryer and the brand new bathrooms. Downstairs queen bedroom and ensuite bath was so comfortable for our elderly Mom. The house is so huge, everyone had space galore. We'll be back!

Grateful Texans Roy N. from Houston, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 14 days in July, 2012 A few of the smaller kitchen utensils, such as the can opener, should be replaced, and the lighting everywhere was a bit dim. Otherwise, no complaints at all.

Stayed for 7 days in July, 2010 Amazing home for our annual family vacation. The beautiful, spacious home allowed us to accomodate several siblings and their children. We very much enjoyed the quiet area in which this home is situated. A short walk to the Emerson Inn was a treat. Many coves made for terrific sunset memories. Walking the rocks was a favorite for the kids.The home is fully equipped with all the amentities anyone would desire.

Enchanting A guest from VIC, Australia recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in August, 2008 Our family reunited for one week from TN, NC, MD, and Australia and enjoyed our stay thoroughly. The house is enchanting! We had dinners in the large dining room and there was plenty of space to either congregate together or slip away to a quiet spot. It was perfect!
