With two bedrooms, a convenient, well-stocked kitchen, and a homey living room, the Salty Dog was just what we needed for a family getaway to Rockport, MA. Owners were friendly and accommodating, and the home was an easy walk to the ocean or town.

About the neighbourhood
The Old Garden Beach neighborhood is a quiet, safe, desirable section of Rockport. The Salty Dog is perfectly-located for easy walking to Old Garden Beach and Trail, the Headlands, Rockport Harbor, downtown Rockport, Bearskin Neck, and Motif #1.
Getting around
The best way to see Rockport is by foot. Fortunately, many of Rockport's shops, restaurants, and attractions are a short walk away from the Salty Dog. Old Garden Beach is a 5 minute stroll down the lane, the Headlands and Rockport Harbor are a 10 minute walk, and Bearskin Neck is a 13 minute walk. With easy access to Routes 127 and 128, the Salty Dog also provides a great home base to explore other Cape Ann attractions in Gloucester, Essex, Ipswich, and beyond. Moreover, the Rockport train station is 1.1 miles from the Salty Dog (5 minute drive or 22 minute walk). Rockport is the first stop and Boston’s North Station is the last stop, an approximate 1 hour 10 minute train ride.
