Richard was very communicative and prepared us well for our stay in Rockport. He was honest about the rustic, not-super-clean, accommodations. However, given the absolutely beautiful surroundings, we hardly noticed. Our family enjoyed the quarry, the beach, and so much more. It was a great place for a get-away, so easy to unplug and kick back. The larger group we brought was packed in a little tightly but we could not have asked for a more relaxing setting.

Response from Richard:
The good news is that we won't be renting anymore next year. You brought excessively more people than we normally allow, but I bent. Cobwebs, really! You read my description. Don't contact us again. Good luck finding that much accommodation for less than $700. night elsewhere for your entourage! It's a cottage!

Richard's hideaway is fantastic! The location is ideal as it is close to town but hidden away from all the activity of town. The weather was perfect allowing us to sleep with all the windows open. It was so quiet and serene. Mornings were spent walking the miles of trails surrounding the area and swimming in the cool, clear, beautiful quarry. All the reviews completely capture this delightful cabin's personality. Richard is a host with the most! He thought of everything to assure that we had a comfortable stay. We highly recommend Richard's cabin for a unique Rockport experience!

A beautiful location, swimming in the quarry was excellent. The host was great. He even helped us out right away when our dog locked us out of the place. Would use again.

Richards’s description is spot on and honest. It is a rustic cottage in the woods, but a rustic cottage with eclectic decor, beautiful artwork and interesting books. If you like privacy, nature, hiking and swimming in a funky quarry then this is the place for you. Richard was an attentive host; great communication throughout. Fridge was stocked with all essentials including a fresh fruit platter, bacon, eggs, bread etc. He gave us a tour of the house and quarry and we enjoyed hearing the history of the cottage and the local area.
