Straitsmouth Cove is a classic seaside "cottage" in a sublime location on Rockport’s Gap Cove. This elegant vacation home has the rambling, comfortable feel of a vintage country manor by the sea. The expansive green lawn, with its incredible waterfront view, is a most serene and awe-inspiring setting with plenty of outdoor living space for lounging or playing ...croquet anyone? You'll enjoy stunning, unobstructed views of Straitsmouth Island from most rooms, as well as from the shady screen porch, patio and the front garden.


Gap Cove, just across the country road, is a place of seaside wonder where you can scramble on the rocks, hunt for shells and seaglass or all manner of little crabs and ocean life or just go for a swim. Put your kayak in or your stand up paddle board and head to Straitsmouth Island with it's paths to explore. From there you can go to Thatcher Island with its twin lighthouses for more exploration or just enjoy the views of Bearskin Neck.

Inside, you'll have plenty of space to get comfortable, with five bedrooms, two full baths and a generous living room with a massive antique brick fireplace. From every vantage point, the living spaces offer endless views of the sea, just beyond the home's expansive lawns and gardens. If you're looking carefully, you might see a whale or a seal sunning on the island rocks.


After a day at the beach or exploring the village of Rockport, relax on the sprawling blue stone patio and take in the ever-changing seascape. Plenty of gorgeous walking/running/biking options and trails right from the property. The home is within walking distance of Rockport village with its famed Shalin Liu Performance Center, shops, galleries and restaurants.
