This is our 8th year of renting 'A Sunset Serenade' studio and we just love meeting all the wonderful folks who come from far and near to enjoy our beautiful surroundings. Hank and I grew up on Cape Ann and have lived in Gloucester for 30+ years... we wouldn't have it any other way! Linda is a jazz vocalist/artist, and Hank is a master carpenter/avid boater.

Linda Amero purchased this studio in 1992

A Sunset Serenade offers the best location ever - situated between Good Harbor & Niles beaches, 5 min. to downtown shopping/restaurants, and 5 min. to Rocky Neck Art Colony galleries with it's 3 fabulous, funky restaurants on the harbor.

Husband and I were in Gloucester for a week and enjoyed every minute -- we walked the entire town, enjoying the fishing vessels, pleasure yachts, restaurants and parks. The studio is exactly as described, very clean and tidy and close to everything. Linens were plentiful and all appliances were in good order. Husband (who is electronically challenged) flubbed up the television one evening but Hank came over and fixed it immediately. We used this base to travel all around Cape Ann and surrounding areas -- even ventured off to Bath, Maine one day to see Bath Iron Works ship building facility and their Maritime Museum.
If I have one regret it's that we didn't have the time (or maybe it was energy) to go to the Franklin Cafe and hear Linda sing!
Would definitely recommend and hope to go back some day.

The Sunset Serenade Studio was the perfect place for us to stay on our vacation in Gloucester. It was very clean, sized just right for two people, the location can't be beat, and the owners treated us like family! The studio overlooks the harbor which looks beautiful in the morning light! I loved sharing my coffee with it every morning. The location is perfect! We were able to visit so many places! We walked all over Gloucester and went on a whale watching cruise(which was awesome). We visited Salem, Marblehead, Rockport(great shopping), took the train to Boston, and even drove up to the coastline of Maine which was only an hour and 15 min drive. We saw so many beautiful sights, took thousands of pictures (we are both photographers), met the friendliest people, and had one of the best vacations of our lives. I highly recommend the Sunset Serenade or if you need more room check out their Summerwind Cottage it is next door and beautiful! We can't wait to go back!

We spent a fabulous week at Linda's great apartment in Gloucester.
From the most welcome greeting and helpful advice to our departure we had a lovely time.
Stylishly furnished and with the most fantastic terrace to view the beautiful sunsets over the harbour.
Good location and easy reach for all the Cape's best attractions. We crammed in a bit much, going further afield to Cape Cod and Martha's Vineyard but it was well worth it.
Only wish we could have had a little while longer.
Owner's Response: Dear Graeme & Margaret,

Thanks for the wonderful review... I'm so pleased that you enjoyed the studio and had a chance to catch a few sunset serenades from the terrace between excursions! If we ever have the good fortunate to visit Scotland, we'll be sure to contact you for a pint or two!

All best,
Linda & Hank

Linda,

We were right to choose your studio as the place to celebrate our 50th year of marriage. We immediately felt relaxed and in a comforting place. Enjoyed our conversations and your suggestions. We shall miss staying in bed and watching the different boats in and out of the harbor.

May love and happiness be yours,
Ray & Judy,

Gloucester, settled in 1623, is America's oldest seaport. Situated at the center of Cape Ann, Gloucester has one of the finest harbors in Massachusetts and remains one of the busiest fishing ports on the Eastern seaboard. Visitors are drawn to Gloucester's rich history, natural beauty, incredible beaches, fresh seafood, and on-water activities, especially the popular whale watch excursions. Gloucester also hosts a sizable artist population, many of whom can be found on Rocky Neck, the oldest working art colony in America.

Dine at the many fine waterfront restaurants and experience some of the world's freshest seafood.

Sunbathe & boogie board on beautiful Good Harbor beach.

Visit Rocky Neck Art Colony & the 3 great waterfront restaurants/bars on the neck (a real boating and music 'scene').

Sunset cruise on the beautiful schooner 'Thomas E. Lannon'.

Whale watch & deep sea fishing excursions.

Lots of night life/ music & great seafood restaurants..

Other Activities: kayaking
