WATER VIEWS OVERLOOKING GLOUCESTER'S INNER HARBOR

Gloucester - Annisquam House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths, Sleeps 6

This graceful, easy-to-live in home is perched above the sparkling waters of Gloucester's inner harbor.

The warm decor and beautiful furnishings create an atmosphere sure to please even the most discerning guests. On the main floor, in addition to the kitchen which opens onto the family room and sun room, there is a half bath, and a formal dining room which is adjacent to the living room complete with grand piano.

I grew up west of Cleveland and have lived on Cape Ann since 1997 when I purchased this home. My first career was as a

senior executive in the retail industry for 24 years. I now provide healing/psychology/coaching services for individuals and group facilitation and training.

I find Cape Ann inspiring. I love the sea, huge rocks, and rugged, genuine people. Once I knew I wanted to move here, I had a dream in which I saw the exact same view we have overlooking the inner harbor, so the moment I walked into this home, I knew I was in the right place.

I especially love the entire back of the house - the kitchen, family room, sun room, outdoor porch and master bedroom. Because they all overlook the inner harbor, there's a peaceful sense of being steeped in the vibrant blend of beauty and everyday life.

This rental property was a dream come true for our stay in Gloucester during the happy occasion of our daughter’s marriage at the nearby Cruiseport. The directions were spot on, and the location was centrally located.
It was immaculately clean, with an efficient kitchen I had to make good use of for preparing wedding cookies.
The homeowner was so helpful and receptive to anything we needed! She provided tons of information to enjoy restaurants, attractions, and all you would need to know concerning the house itself. I've never experienced such an accommodating homeowner!
The rooms were beautifully decorated, so spacious, and furnished with all we could have needed.
We hope to return someday to enjoy a more relaxing and slower paced trip, and take advantage of all the wonderful places Gloucester and Rockport has to offer. This will be our first choice for sure! I highly recommend this rental!

What a lovely home and so easy to use as a hub for visiting New England. It was so nice to be able to sit in the enclosed porch during the morning while having our coffee and in the evening for the view was so beautiful. My friend from the UK was thrilled that we were able to relax in a home situation in lieu of staying at a hotel where it would be hard to visit with each other.
My husband was so taken with the property (and loved the fact that we could use the garage) that he is trying to figure out if and when we can bring our adult children with us for our next visit.

Great first experience with Homeaway

Thank you Kathy for being a gracious host. From the beginning booking with your quick replies to the thank you note returned with the deposit check. You are a class act and it is representing in the house.

The house was extremely cozy with top amenities such as the sun porch, huge kitchen, grand piano, and jacuzzi tub in master. We really enjoyed the whole house and our only complaint is that our trip was so short.

This is a great alternative to a hotel for a week's visit to the area or a long weekend. You can enjoy your wine on the sun porch and cook a dinner with your guests. I highly recommend this rental.

Gorgeous house, very clean and homey. Great location for the harbor view and to walk downtown to shops and restaurants. Kathy had loads of brochures and great info. Would have liked to stay another week. Lots to see and do. Would highly recommend this home and owner.

Great Gloucester Location

If you like staying where you can safely walk to everything, this is the place. Kathy was so nice to deal with and the house is beautiful. So many restaurants/bars and the ones we thought were a little too far away (1/2 mile or more, we would take a cab for $5.00. Can't wait to go back! I have nothing but great things to say about it.
