About Linda Amero

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

Why Linda Amero chose Gloucester and Annisquam

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Linda,



It was the first time that we choose a rental instead of an hotel for our vacation. My boyfriend prefer hotels! I had to work hard to convince him and we were very pleased with our new choice. If every rentals were like yours I would never choose the hotel option again. Particularly we appreciate, in addition to your warm welcome, many aspects that made our stay very pleasant: cleanliness, fresh smell and fresh air at night, bed comfort, pure cotton linens (we hate polyester that we find everywhere even in upscale hotels!!!), bare floors instead of rugs, well equipped kitchen, nice view, ocean proximity, Gloucester that we fell in love with decades ago, a great feeling of being at home and above all those details...our hosts! Thank you very much for this wonderful week.



We join two photos taken from your deck at sunset.



P.S. Be indulgent for my English!

Sweet little studio

  • 4 of 5
The studio is very well appointed with anything you may need for a lovely vacation hide- away. We didn't do any cooking, but everything you may need is available. We loved the deck for drinking champagne and watching the sun set. Hope to return next summer.

Wonderful week in Gloucester!

  • 5 of 5
Firstly, the reservation process was simple and Linda was prompt in answering my all important question - "What type of coffeemaker should I expect?"

When we arrived, all was as we'd expected with many thoughtful extras like a beach umbrella and small cooler for the beach. The studio was exceptionally clean, comfortable, and pleasantly decorated with the sights and sounds of the harbor in the background, which just made us want to get out and explore the area!

We arrived during the annual Schooner Festival and walked into town our first evening to check it out. The fireworks over the harbor were beautiful. And so began our wonderful week.

Linda provided a wealth of information about the area via brochures and her "Favorite Things To Do" list which we brought with us on every outing. Gloucester has a lot of great food - from sandwiches at Virgilio's to sushi at Latitude 43, and much more in between!

I have wanted to go on a whale watch for years now, and finally got my wish. Seven Seas whale watch was fabulous. A clean, fast boat and naturalist on board made it an amazing experience. We saw several whales, but most amazing was how close we got to a humpback named Etch-a-Sketch and her calf!

I highly recommend A Sunset Serenade. Linda was friendly and helpful, while respecting our privacy. We were relaxed and comfortable in her studio and Gloucester had much more to offer than we had expected! We hope to return, since there was no way to see and do all in one week.

Owner's Response: Dear Debra & Mike,

This is the kind or review we love to get! So thoughtful and detailed, it really gives one a sense of what to expect from the studio and our fair city. We never tire of hearing about the adventures of our guests and take great pride in helping them to experience the most from their visit. Such a pleasure to meet you both and we look forward to having you back.

Linda & Hank

Great getaway

  • 5 of 5
The Sunset Studio is a Gloucester gem! The deck is perfect for morning coffee, watching the boats in the harbor and the perfect place to watch the sunset. The location is great; close enough for a walk to town or restaurants. If you prefer to eat in, the kitchen is fully equipt and a grocery store is nearby. It is just a short drive to Rocky Neck and Rockport. The owners are very friendly and accommodating, and respectful of your privacy. And they provide a list of their favorite eateries and things to do. Looking forward to returning.

Very happy w/Sunset Serenade--couldn't be better.

Very happy w/Sunset Serenade--couldn't be better.

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.

A GREAT place to stay!

  • 5 of 5
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!

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..
