Gloucester - Annisquam House Rental Photos and Description
4 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms; Beds for 7 and sleeps max of 9
You can’t get better views than this! Designed by a Harvard-affiliated architect, the glass-enclosed sunroom has wall-to-wall views of the ocean. An upstairs deck offers more break-taking views. Grill on the deck or pack sandwiches for the beach. Hear the ocean all over the house! ******* The interior of the house has beautiful hardwood floors and is filled with light. When you aren't at the beach, wile away the hours admiring the glittering Atlantic from the sun room, or cozy up with a good book. ****** From the house, it is a 5-10 minute walk to each of two nearby beaches, Good Harbor Beach or Long Beach. If you’ve never been to Good Harbor Beach, you’re in for a treat! At low tide, the waves part and you can walk to a nearby island! (To visualize this, imagine Moses and the Red Sea.)
Entering the house one is immediately awestruck by the view out the oceanside sunroom. The Atlantic is just 'there,' so close you feel you could touch it. The house is cozy and comfy, lived-in but not broken down. The smell of wood floors mingles with the tang of ocean; the sound of the waves is a constant background. In the summer the property is perfect for a family beach vacation, complete with sun, sand, and seashells; in the winter it makes a wonderful quiet getaway for a solitary writer or artist, or for a couple wanting a week of tranquil togetherness in their own little world.

About A Roedder
My grandfather purchased this as a birthday gift to my grandmother back in the 1970s, and it became a family getaway every summer. When he passed away in 2007, it passed to the grandchildren, and we now rent it out so that more people can enjoy its stunning views and locale.
A Roedder purchased this house in 1976
