Gloucester and Annisquam House Rental Photos and Description
5 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, sleeps 10 (2 queens, 4 twins,1 bunk)
Spectacular vacation home Big Driftwood and its equally spectacular location are true gems. The house is one of several on a large oceanfront old family estate on Davis Neck, Ipswich Bay, next to Annisquam, Gloucester, Mass. Set on the side of the hill, Big Driftwood overlooks Ipswich Bay and glorious sunsets. From the house there are paths (and road) leading to 2 beaches (one of soft white sand) and a pier just below the house. There are also 2 tennis courts and lots of fields, woods and rocky shore to roam, including a wild peninsula with path to the point. The beauty is indescribable. The variety of birds and wildlife is amazing.
Big Driftwood itself is modern, with spectacular sunset views over the ocean. Although it can sleep 10, it is also perfect for 1-2 people who can live entirely on the upstairs floor (which includes the living area as well as the master (queen) bedroom and bath). The living area (living, dining and kitchen) with fireplace, is spacious, high ceilinged, with skylights and glass sliding doors to deck, all of which look over the ocean. Downstairs there are 4 additional bedrooms and 2 baths. All have ocean views.
A lovely, soul inspiring opportunity! Available all year 'round.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Driftwood is the perfect beach house. The house is bright, spacious and immaculate with wrap-around ocean views. There are two beaches on the property, perfect for kayaking or water sports. Tennis courts are adjacent to the house, also with spectacular ocean views. The setting is great for quiet relaxing as well as for active sports. But perhaps best of all are the unbeatable sunset views.
We will definitely be back.
