“Motif, bearskin neck Rockport”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

The motif makes a beautiful painting, and I myself own one. Going there......eh' it's just another old building. You go, you look, your done. Unless you have some heavy photo deadline for a photography class its a five minute visit. The area surrounding the motif on the other hand is WONDERFUL. The motif sits in the middle of bearskin neck a beautiful and fun little tourist trap with tons of small businesses that everyone will enjoy. The local food is to die for as well. So even though the motif in my opinion is mearly 5 minutes of " oh look how pretty", the rest of bear skin neck is a great place to spend the day!

“As great as the pictures!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

Do not miss it at sunset and from the many different angles in Rockport. The light in Rockport is amazing for photos.
