Athena Cottage by the Sea
This charming summer rental cottage features gorgeous water views from two large second story decks. Beautifully landscaped with a perennial garden, this vacation home is located in the coveted “south end” of Rockport, about 1.5 miles from the village. The Shalin Liu Performance Center and Old Garden Beach are in one direction, and Pebble Beach and Cape Hedge Beach lie in the other direction. Located in an area famous for its beautiful and serene waterfront walks, the house is well situated to enjoy peace and quiet, or find more active fun at the beach or in town.
Enter into the living room, in the original part of the house with beautifully aged wood paneling and a door to the sizable screened in porch at one end. The centrally-located kitchen is original to the house, with added modern appliances. Down the hall is a full bath with a clawfoot tub (with shower) and just beyond is a double bedroom, with access to the screened porch. On the other side of the kitchen is the new addition to the house, which contains a bright and airy family room.
The second floor is home to two bedrooms (one with twins and one with a single) in the original part of the house, as well as a full bath with a tub. The newer section of the second floor houses the queen master bedroom with its vaulted ceilings and ensuite bath with a tub and shower. Off of the master is the first large deck, which faces toward the village and offers ocean views. This deck can also be accessed through the single bedroom. Through the twin bedroom is the door to another large deck which has ocean views to the east and south and include views of the twin lighthouses on Thacher Island.
