A great place for a family reunion

  • 5 of 5
Our expectations were exceeded. The swimming pool and hot tub were wonderful features that are not usually available in a large house rental.. The large deck, swimming pool and four large interior rooms gave us plenty of places to congregate. Were had 12 full time people and the house's proximity to Boston and Maine allowed other relatives to visit for a day.

We enjoyed many activities in the area. We went whale watching, deep sea fishing and sailing. We visited Rockport and walked out to Eastern Point Lighthouse. Some of us toured Beauport which is an historic estate within walking distance. Although there are beaches nearby, the water is cold but the pool was heated. Take pictures at the beach, but swim in the pool. Lobster dinners and meals on the outdoor grill provided all of our evening food.

The owner travels a lot and may be difficult to reach when you start your reservation process, but be persistent and you will be able to reserve a wonderful rental. When your actually there Sam has hired a local pool service, a handyman and a housekeeper who live nearby. They will quickly resolve any maintenance issues that occur during your visit.

Exceeded our expectations by far!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wedding in Gloucester last Friday and decided to make a weekend of it with a few friends. The house and ocean views are absolutely amazing. We spent the majority of our time outside on the large deck and in/around the heated pool and hot tub. There was a nice feeling of seclusion as the neighbors are not close by. The house was bigger than I imagined and the layout is conducive to large parties, as the majority of the bedrooms tend to be away from the kitchen and living rooms. The owner and house manager were both so kind and accommodating. I definitely recommend this home, and plan to rent it out for a yearly trip!

Very nice place but administratively challenged

  • 3 of 5
The house is very nice and we were please with out stay, but the administrative complexity of dealing with the owner and his designates reduced our enjoyment. Mr. Barth was very accommodating, when we could reach him.

Following is my last communication with him - Sorry to take so long to get back to you. Although I would note to I am responding after 7 days, while it took you 11 days to respond my inquiry. We did review our bank records and cannot find that our check was cashed. In attempting to reach you, I called the house and spoke to current renter and she told me that at some point she was advised that her checks were never received but they were eventually found. Suspecting a similar fate for my check, I have put a stop payment order on it. I have deducted that from the net owed you. I will be mailing you a check for the check you lost which was not cashed, less the return of our security deposit and the cost to stop payment on the check.

I should also mention that the renter asked me if we had received any operating instructions as they had received none and were having trouble turning the hot tub off. I asked if the algae in pool had been removed as you said would be done and she said no. I asked if the grill had been replaced, as you had said you would do, and she said not only had it not been replaced but it had run out of propane and they had to get the tank filled in order to use the one side that was working. We commiserated over the fact that the house is wonderful, but the administrative snafus of lost checks and failures to communicate and algae in the pool and a grill that is barely functional take a great deal of the enjoyment of occupancy away.

In plain terms, when you pay Ritz Carlton prices, you should get Ritz Carlton service, what we got was closer to a Great Western level of service.

Gorgeous location for this spacious home

  • 5 of 5
We knew we had hit the jackpot when we drove up to this beautiful home. The location was quiet and picturesque, but also convenient. We felt very comfortable in the home, and our children really enjoyed the playroom. The owners were very easy to work with, and we hope to stay here again. On a personal note, we arrived at 1am after flying into Logan with our two children. The owners had arranged for the home to be ready for us at such an odd hour, and the kind woman had even left us muffins and coffee for the morning. Thank you for such an incredible experience, we cannot recommend this place enough!!!

Great place whether you are 7, 78 or a sweet dog

  • 5 of 5
We spent 5 wonderful days at this Gloucester retreat. Everything about this home is welcoming. We entertained overnight guests ranging in age from 7 to 78 as well as our dog Bailey. There were games for the children, pool table for the teenagers, exercise equipment for the health nuts, outdoor space to run and play, and quiet corners to read The house has many rooms on two levels (with a chair lift which was an unexpected and welcome surprise for a friend with a knee injury). Soothing views of the pond and ocean, turtles and ducks. The dog was in heaven walking around the pond and found friends to romp with at Gloucester's large new dog park. We loved it in April and it must be glorious in the summer.

It's simply amazing!

It's simply amazing!

Can't say enough good things about this house, from the location, the quiet neighborhood, the view that made me gasp every morning at the sheer beauty of it, to how clean the house was, how spacious the house is, how accommodating the owner was and how great it was to be met by a housekeeper who showed us all the ins and outs of the house. We arrived between winter and spring so the pool was not open yet. The pool would only enhance the loveliness of this property.
The neighborhood is quiet - there was little to no vehicle traffic, mostly folks out walking their dogs. The pond across the street was full of duck activity and at night we heard coyotes yipping. Beyond the pond we could see the ocean waves. We found our way to Brace Cove and saw seals in the cove!
The house was spotless and will comfortably accommodate 3-4 families with a quiet corner for everyone to retreat into. I could easily envision a family reunion here. The facilities are well set up with a washer, dryer, even an ironing board and Iron!
Even a working fireplace! We were happy to be able to bring our dog along, and the property lends itself to being outdoors with the dog and no fear of them dashing out on the road. Our entire family highly recommends this home for your vacation.
