HISTORIC HOME LOCATED ON SCENIC EASTERN POINT

Gloucester - Annisquam Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 bedroom, 2 baths, sleeps 4

Third floor apartment located in the former mansion of Clarence Birdseye. The apartment is open, airy, spacious and has ocean views. Being only steps away from Brace Cove (an exclusive and private beach) allows guests to have access to the ocean in under a minute. Even in the peak of summer the beach is barely used. This property is located in the historic, scenic and private Eastern Point neighborhood and I mile away from Rocky Neck Art Colony which offers galleries, shops and fine dining.

Suitability:
  • wheelchair inaccessible
  • children welcome
  • unsuitable for elderly or infirm
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • pets considered
  • non smoking only

Listen to the surf from the bedroom window

I spent a beautiful 3 weeks in September in this great apartment. With the window of the main bedroom open beside my pillow, I could hear the surf on the distant rocks in the middle of the night, an incredibly peaceful sound. The landlords were friendly and attentive. The neighborhood was made famous by the likes of Isabella Gardner, Henry Davis Sleeper and A. Piatt Andrew in the years before the First World War. You can still visit Sleeper's magical house, now run by Historic New England, open to the public, and 10 minutes walk from the house. I had a great time.

A real retreat from the busy world.

We stayed for two weeks at the end of the summer and absolutely loved it. The house is in a perfect location in East Gloucester, and the apartment is spacious, very comfortable, and private. Brace Cove and Niles Bach are only a few minutes walk away, and several of Gloucester's other famous beaches are within a 5 to 15 minutes drive, at most. This is a great place to play it low-key, relaxing on the screened porch, taking walks on the beach and around Eastern Point, but also an ideal place from which to launch day trips to explore the rest of the North Shore. The owners are very nice people who made us feel welcome and were available if we needed anything, but let us go about our days without any fuss or bother. We are already looking forward to our visit next year!

Great Gloucester Location

The accommodations are fabulous. The third floor views are breathtaking. The skylights give it an open feel. All furnishings and essentials are provided. Just bring yourself. Walks along the harbor and cove are a must. Everything is truly first class. Rocky Neck is within walking distance and the downtown of Gloucetser is only minutes away by car. Stayed for three months and wish I could have stayed longer.

A wonderful place to stay!

We stayed here over the 4th of July weekend and had a fabulous time. The apartment is absolutely charming, very clean, and in a great location. We walked to Niles Beach everyday and to Rocky Neck, and in general, just thoroughly enjoyed being in such grand surroundings. The bedroom has a lovely water view, and the apartment has the feel of a warm home, rather than a typical rental. Would highly recommend it!
