Overview

Gloucester and Annisquam Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms , 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-6)

You can really have it all in Gloucester's inner harbor.

Private pool (OPEN: mid-May - mid-Sept ), Garden landscape. Panoramic views of Gloucester harbor AND less than 1-mile walk to Good Harbor Beach.

WE DO NOT ALLOW LONG TERM STAYS, TWO-WEEK MAXIMUM.

This 2BR apartment comfortably accommodates four on vacation or in town for a graduation weekend, college visits, but it’s also a perfect getaway for anyone looking for a small slice of heaven on Cape Ann during the off season.

Past guests repeatedly say this apartment is bigger in person and the space looks just like the pictures online. Several said this property is the very best VRBO/HomeAway accommodation they have ever rented. They also write about how cozy and comfy the apartment is; many feel right at home, right away. Just read our stellar reviews.

This apartment is on the second floor of our house, where we live, with our amazing views of Gloucester's Inner Harbor. Within this apartment, there are two bedrooms each with its own private bathroom. The master bedroom has a queen bed and a twin bed and a hidden trundle bed for young children with a full bathroom with soaking tub. The second bedroom, off of the living area, has a queen bed and a bathroom with a shower stall. Each bedroom is ideal for couples traveling together, but the twin & trundle bed make it flexible for up to 6 people. The living room couch is extra long and comfy for sleeping but it is not a sleep-sofa.

The apartment has its own private entrance. There is off-street parking for up to 3 cars. The open living-dining space has a dining room table that can seat 4, flat screen TV with basic cable, WiFi, a comfy sofa with coffee table, two over-sized chairs, and a breakfast bar with 4 stools at the kitchen counter. The well-equipped kitchen has an oven/stove, fridge with freezer, coffeemaker, microwave, dishwasher, toaster, and full set of dishes, pots & pans, flatware and many utensils. If anything is missing, just let us know. We’re right downstairs!

I am Rebecca and manage this property. I live on the first floor below this apartment with my retired mother, Dot, (aka 'Gloucester Quilter') who quilts and gardens at home. One of us is always on hand to attend to any question or concern.

We are very knowledgeable about how best to experience the North Shore and day trips in our region and towns across New England.

We will reply with a quote along with our comprehensive, 6-page, visitors guide which includes heaps of local do's and don'ts.

About Rebecca Borden

My mother has owned in this property since 2000. I moved back home in 2009 to help support her. We decided to join VRBO in Nov'11 after we had such a positive experience renting ourselves through VBRO. We have enjoyed hosting some great guests from all over the country and internationally!

This apartment is an 'in-law' apartment on the second floor of the house where we live on the first floor. We love sharing our property, pool (in summer) and landscape with our guests. As our reviews confirm, we have had many happy guests.

We do not rent for extended stays because, while we have had many amazing visitors, we did have a few bad apples . We are cautious about sharing our property with incompatible 'neighbors' for extended stays. Those are our terms and we hope you respect our perspective.

As a policy, we do not give out our address for privacy and security reasons. We live here along with our neighbors in one of the best kept secret locations on Cape Ann. We feel our online reviews speak for themselves.

Rebecca Borden purchased this apartment in 2000

Why Rebecca Borden chose Gloucester and Annisquam

Gloucester and Cape Ann are an hour from Boston. We have amazing beaches, rich history and cultural legacy and award winning restaurants. You can easily take a day trip to Boston by commuter rail and come back and see a glorious sunset over the harbor.

What makes this apartment unique

We love sharing our views, pool and property with guests. Gloucester is such a great area to visit and vacation!

Absolutely the best

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a place to stay for my son's graduation and found this wonderful gem. The property is gorgeous from the views to the place itself. When we arrived on Wednesday we were so captured by the view we didn't want to go in. We were met by Dot who showed us our living quarters. The view from living room is equally beautiful and the place is extremely clean and very comfortable. The beds were great, bathrooms excellent, and the kitchen well stocked with every thing you need to feed your crew.

As this was going to be the place where family came to enjoy post graduation fun they allowed us the grounds to host our small event. Everyone that cam was extremely impressed even the Gloucester natives were extremely impressed with the view. The great thing is Good Harbour Beach is a ten minute bike ride from the house.

Dot and Rebecca were the best. This is a little jewel that you should try and you won't go wrong! Thanks Dot and Rebecca for allowing us to enjoy our time there. we will be back!

Owner's Response: When these guests arrived, I knew they were not going to want to leave. Each sunset, they sat out and soaked up the light, air and view. They were in town for their son's graduation from Gordon College and we worked closely to coordinate logistics to allow them to host a small party of Gordon friends on the property during their stay. We wish more parents/alumni of Gordon College knew about us! I am sure they will book with us again. We'd love to have them back. We are getting more and more repeat guests every year, which we love...and is one of the reasons we are so booked.

Everything we expected

Very clean and charming, excellent location overlooking the harbor and close to it all, Dot and Rebecca were perfect hosts.

Owner's Response: These guests booked at the last minute - less than a week before they arrived. They came to Boston for a function on a weekend and wanted to spend more time in the area. We loved helping them explore Cape Ann. We've had a late spring. We're fully booked this summer (2015) but welcome to hosting guests in this fall - and all winter long!

What a view....

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a long weekend. Rebecca and Dot are great hosts, that offer assistance as you need it or let you to your own thing if you do not. There is a private entrance for renters, which works out well. Plenty of property and a quiet area of Gloucester way high upon a hill that overlooks the marina. Super easy and quick to get into the main drag in town and the property and owners are very dog friendly, which was a big plus for us. We would definitely stay again and will soon.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the Gloucester apartment for the Happy Holidays 1/2 Merrython. The property is amazing, with great views over the harbor. The apartment was perfect for us (2 couples, 2 dogs each). Plenty of space in the kitchen, with a very comfortable living room and dining room as well. Hosts were very kind and welcoming and made sure we had any questions answered, and everything we needed.

Owner's Response: You were great guests and we love having people on our property that love it as much as we do. Thank you for helping confirm how nice and roomy our apartment is and how much we are pet friendly. We hope you come back for another road race on Cape Ann - there are many!! But know you can also sit back and relax and feel like you are in a home away from home.

comfortable, roomy, great views

  • 4 of 5

comfortable and roomy - a little hard to find the first time but then okay-great view of the harbor and easy access to local restaurants and shops and the waterfront in your car. Hosts are very friendly. The fact that it has 2 bathrooms makes it easy to get ready to go out touring. Easy drive to other areas of Cape Ann. Well stocked kitchen

Owner's Response: Our apartment has a very roomy and comfortable living room and common kitchen area that overlooks Gloucester Harbor. I agree it is hard to find the first time - but that is what makes this private property so special! Past guest reviews who issues about finding the property were seniors and not as tech savvy, even though I give them a printable map customized with arrows about how to get here - along with a telephone number to call if needed.

Gloucester Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Gloucester Quilter apartment was wonderful! Our hosts were so welcoming and the apartment was beautiful and spacious and very clean! The view of Gloucester and the harbor are amazing and helped create a truly relaxing stay. There are boxes filled with brochures for activities to explore the area, dining and shopping options but with a full kitchen eating in is great, too. Beautiful outside seating overlooking the water adds to the gorgeous setting. We'd love to return someday.
