“Caught a lobster here!”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

We originally had no idea we were at 'motif # 1'. The jetty just seemed to ideal place to put in a line and do a bit of fishing. We caught a large Striper first and lo and behold a large lobster soon after that. It hung on for dear life even though it ought to have done a jump while it could... Happy memories and a delicious meal for the people we gave it to as a present. As far as Motif # 1 - I can see it now and it is iconic.

“One of my favorite places to visit”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

Definitely do not miss this on your visit to Rockport. Such a beautiful building. Perfect place to take pictures or sit with a cup of coffee and watch the fishing boats in the morning.

“Motif Number 1”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

A truly iconic New England site! I enjoy strolling through town and then walking down the wharf to sit and enjoy the view. It is interesting to see the lobster men in the early morning hours as they head out to their pots and then later when they return with their catch.

“Had to see it since it is an icon.”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

Got a snap and then moved on. I have a picture with my review of Captain's Bounty Motel. If you are not a photographer or painter, you probably won't be interested
