Why Theresa chose Gloucester - Annisquam

We love this area of Gloucester because it is located on a quiet street, but is walking distance to Downtown and the boulevard and Ravenswood park. The property has some Harbor view. We love living in Gloucester. My family ( 4 of us) and our golden retriever live in the house. We also have a one bedroom apartment that is rented in the house. We like the idea of sharing this unique property.

Amazing Location, Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
Sometimes 'harbor view' means standing on tiptoe straining to look out the attic window -- not so with this amazing house! The dining room offers one of the most spectacular views of the ocean that I've ever seen in a house that wasn't on TV, and it's not even the only room with such a view.
The master bedroom is a perfect romantic oasis with almost a dozen windows overlooking the ocean -- the sunsets and sunrises seen through these windows are incomparable. The master bedroom also has a great little private deck to suit afternoon naps.
The kitchen is spacious and well appointed (two ovens!), and the linens and towels were soft and comfortable. There was even a linen service arranged so we didn't have to wash our sheets and towels at the end of our stay. There's a laundry room upstairs, with the master bed and two other bedrooms, and with another bedroom downstairs and the bedroom and bathroom in the attached apartment, there's plenty of room of everyone.
It's a very short walk (less than half a mile) to the beach, and about a mile walk to the Gloucester downtown area with a library, post office, and many quaint shops and restaurants. Gloucester is a great town in the summer -- music from the Stage Fort Park concert series wafts through the windows in the summer, and in June there's the St. Peter's Fiesta with a carnival downtown (in walking distance) and many other festivities.
I had an amazing experience in this house and would stay here again anytime. From being able to spread out and relax throughout the house, to trips to the beach and downtown Gloucester, this setting makes for a great vacation. If nothing else, I'd come back just for the views!

Owner's Response: One our our favorite parts of renting our vacation rentals is reading the wonderful comments in our guest book. We really enjoy knowing that we have provided a place to enjoy precious vacation time. When we are here we love walking down through the park and along the ocean on the nice wide walkways and the kids love to stop at one of the two beautiful oceanfront playgrounds. It is fun to see the boat traffic in Gloucesters' vast and open Harbor. The beaches are fun and varied, sandy or rocky, lots of opportunities for finding beach treasures or just long walks on the beach or take off in a kyack from the park. It is great to be able to walk downtown and choose from over 10 wonderful restrauants and walk off a few calories on the way home or walk to the cupboard ice cream stand in the park and enjoy some of the best ice cream you have ever tasted. Come and enjoy a vacation here at our vacation home!!!!

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5
The place was absolutely fantastic. Teresa and her family were wonderful hosts and all the little touches such as warm cookies when we arrived and fresh baked bread meant a lot. It really begins a vacation well.

As for the actual place, it was spotless, well setup and just beautiful and modern. Fantastic views of the ocean. It was really great to have a hot cup of coffee in the morning while sitting outside and watching the boats leave. It is a nice and easy walk to a couple of beaches at Stage Fort Park (although we recommend either Good Harbour beach or Wingearsheek beach) which are only short drives away.

We cannot recommend this place strongly enough. If you have never been to Gloucester, it is a great place to start your trip.

We absolutely loved it and w are sure that many you will too!

Thanks to Teresa and the whole Whitmore family for making our trip memorable!

Great stay

  • 4 of 5
Wonderful view and charming town. There is a farmers market on Thursday down at the park that was a lot of fun. We took a cruise out on the harbor and visited Hammond Castle. Avoid the beach on Friday - Sunday, but go to the beach. We had a great stay. A Light Rail is near by and provides easy access to downtown Boston (about an hour) and the Freedom Trail

***Only 4 stars due to poor internet. We had 2 computers and both had to be in the bedroom for the internet to work reliably.... even then the speed was very poor. the location and amenities allows me to give it a strong recommendation.

Perfect place!

  • 5 of 5
This truly is the perfect place to stay! From the moment we arrived we felt welcome. Theresa personally met and welcomed us with a smile. The yard and the view from the outside seating area is incredible! When we stepped inside, we couldn't believe our good fortune. The apartment is beautifully decorated and the views from the windows are fabulous! The place was very clean but not just clean in the obvious sense, but also in the way it was decorated. Everything was bright and fresh. The apartment was also well supplied with everything we would need for our stay. Theresa even provided us with a loaf of fresh bread and freshly made chocolate chip cookies. The apartment is also very kid-friendly. We really enjoyed cooking on the outdoor grill. We were also very pleased by our location in relation to everything else. We walked almost everywhere. The kids loved the nearby play ground at Stage Fort Park. We also loved Good Harbor beach. We had to drive to it but Theresa again helped us immensely by letting us park at her sister's house to save the parking fee. This place and its owner are an amazing value for the money. When we come back, we will definitely stay here. Three things we also recommend here: whale watch, Virgilio's deli, and mosquito repellent (they are ferocious!).

Best Summer Vacation

  • 5 of 5
My husband, daughter, and I stayed at this apartment for all of last summer and had an absolute blast. We love Gloucester and had so much fun in this cozy apartment. It is on a quite road right across from a park and small beach, and within walking distance to several great restaurants downtown. We would walk along the boardwalk into downtown almost every night, also to pick up fresh fish right from the fish market. There is an amazing view over the water with lots of windows and small patio for eating a meal on.
The apartment is very clean and well maintained with friendly neighbors. It has a washer, dryer, and dishwasher that always came in handy. There are also two commuter rail stations a couple miles away that my husband would take to work everyday into Boston with ease.
I would definitely recommend staying here for anyone who wants to have a relaxing vacation. There are beautiful beaches around and lots of activities to do.
