TRULY RELAXING

  • 5 of 5
1Norwood Heights is a true home away from home. It is very thoughtfully supplied and decorated. We have had the pleasure of staying there twice now - the first time for a wedding with 12 adults and the second time for fun with 10 adults and 4 children under 4. It was the house was perfect for both groups! With it's many spacious rooms and huge back yard we could not only enjoy time as an entire group, but also had places to retreat to for peace and quiet. The small and friendly beach felt like it was there just for us and close enough that the children could walk there. We recommend this home for any group looking to spend a vacation together like when they were kids: bbq, beach, bunk beds, and board games.
We are already looking forward to the next time we stay there!

BEAUTIFUL HOME

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this beautiful home over Easter vacation. The home was incredible. The owner was extremely easy to work with from the very beginning. We found the home to be spacious, comfortable, and full of amenities. There was a lot of living space for us to enjoy. Each bedroom was beautiful, and our children really loved the bunk room. We walked to the lighthouse beach every night. Thank you for sharing your home with us, and I would give this home my highest recommendation!

AMAZING! AMAZING! AMAZING! THANK YOU LISEN!

  • 5 of 5
We had the most wonderful stay in this home with our family and extended family. The owners were more than kind, easily accessible, and quick to respond with any questions we had. The property was extremely clean, more spacious than expected, and just provided the perfect home for us for our holiday getaway. Not only would I recommend this location for someone to stay at, were already discussing it as our annual family Christmas destination. Thank you Lisen for making our holiday get together so memorable for my family by making the use of your home available to us! All the best!

HOME NEAR LIGHTHOUSE BEACH GLOUCESTER MA

  • 5 of 5
The description of the home does not do this house justice. I think the only way to get an idea of how wonderful it is would be to do a video of it.

We were lucky enough to have our extended family come and stay at the house over the holidays and the house could not have been more perfect! It was like we were living our own little christmas movie in a wonderful new england carraige home.

The large first floor living room with a wonderful oversized fireplace was a the perfect place for everyone to congregate with seperate sitting area and a ping pong table that had everyone wondering why we do not have them in our own homes. The dining room was large enough to have a formal holiday dinner. The bedrooms were huge as well. The bunk beds were a big hit as well! Beatifuls grounds and a great little walk to little lighthouse beach!

The owners were very accomodating and professional and made us feel like guests . The home was very well maintained and had allot of unique new england character.

I would recommend this home in heartbeat!

WONDERFUL FAMILY REUNION

  • 5 of 5
We hosted our relatives here for a family reunion and it was wonderful! It was spacious yet cozy, especially considering we had about 12 people...during Hurricane Irene! Luckily, the hurricane didn't really affect us and we enjoyed sitting in the house playing games, catching up, and eating while it rained and the wind blew outside.

The house is really charming and unique. It is rambling, but it is also so cozy and sweet at the same time. The bedrooms are beautifully decorated and the kids' bunks room was really fun - even though most of us "kids" were in our 30s!

They also have everything you could need. Plenty of dishware, cooking utenstils, towels, sheets, etc. The house is really well-appointed and you can tell they put a lot of love in that place.

Location was also great. Walking distance to a private beach and into the center of Annisquam; not far from Route 128. We could get everywhere we needed to in about 15 minutes.

Lisen was very professional and easy to deal with. She was also very concerned about our welfare due to the hurricane, but we withstood the storm just fine in their lovely home!

I highly recommend it to anyone and hope to come back again.

Owner's Response: We are so blessed to have guests who appreciate our home. Our goal is for your stay to be as easy and relaxing as it might be in your own home (assuming you could put aside the many "to do" lists!).
We are thrilled when we have repeat visitors and encourage our guests to come back again and again.
Thanks to all for the kind reviews.
With warm regards.

A FANTASIC HOME

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week in August at this gracious home. There is ALOT of room, many spaces to escape and be alone. A wonderful place for an extended family. The bunk room was perfect for 4 teenage girls!!! A great place if you need to do some work on-line ( 2 office spaces) good wireless access. The beach is wonderful at low tide....many sand dollars...very peaceful. The only two amenities we would have enjoyed would be another TV and a gas grill. The kitchen had everything you could need. The linens on site were fantastic. An eclectic library for bookworms. Games for the kids......ping pong.....a nice neighborhood for a walk. The young adults LOVED the outdoor fireplace and so did I.

Annisquam was the exclusive summering community of Boston Brahmans in the 1800s. Many of the summering families trace their roots back six or more generations. The area now is home to artists, writers, intellectuals, and those who are looking for a more relaxed way of life. Turn off your screen and enjoy the beauty of Lighthouse Beach, the charm of the annual Annisquam Sea Faire, the fun of the fourth of July parade. The local area boasts world renowned theater, chamber music, and dance festivals.
