PRIME GLOUCESTER PROPERTY - OVERLOOKING THE HARBOR WITH POOL

Gloucester - Annisquam Apartment Rental Photos and Description

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

Why rent in Annisquam or Lanesville, when you can really have it all in the heart of Gloucester?

Private pool (OPEN: mid-May - mid-Sept ), garden landscape and vegetable gardens (summer), panoramic views of harbor,

Less than 1-mile walks to:

Good Harbor Beach

Rocky Neck Art Colony

North Shore Art Association

local elementary school playground (20 yds)

NOTE: We do not rent extended stays. Two week maximum. In the summer, we ONLY rent week-long periods from Sat-Sat.

This 2BR apartment comfortably accommodates a family of four for vacation, wedding, or graduation, but it’s also a perfect getaway for some time out of town. Our guests repeatedly tell us the apartment is bigger in person and that the space looks just like the pictures online.

The apartment is on the second floor of our house, where we live, overlooking Gloucester Harbor. Within the apartment, there are two bedrooms each with its own private bathroom. The master bedroom has a four-poster queen bed, with an extra twin bend and 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. The apartment has its own private entrance. There is off-street parking for up to 3 cars. The open living-dining space has a flat screen TV with cable (HBO, Showtime, Starz, Encore), 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 utensils. If anything is missing, just let us know. We’re right downstairs!

I am Rebecca and I live in the house below the apartment with my retired mother, Dot, (aka 'Gloucester Quilter') who quilts and gardens. One of us is always on hand to attend to any question or concern. In the summer we maintain a vegetable garden and, on the off seasons, we enjoy the sunsets and long walks with our two Labs in the afternoon on Good Harbor Beach or at local woodland trails in Ravenswood or Moraine Farms. We are very knowledgeable about how best to experience the North Shore and day trips in our region and towns across New England.

My mother has lived in this property for over 10 years now. I moved back home in 2009. 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!

We do not rent for extended stays because, while we have had many amazing guests, we did have a few bad apples in 2012. We live underneath our guests, hence we are cautious about sharing our property with incompatible 'neighbors' for extended stays. Those are our terms and we hope you respect our perspective.

Rebecca Borden purchased this apartment in 2000

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

PERFECT GETAWAY

We had an excellent stay, the house was comfortable and cozy with a gorgeous view if Gloucester village and harbor! We enjoyed watching the beautiful sunsets from their beautiful back yard. Dot and Rebecca could not have been more gracious hosts. I will definitely be making another trip back!

PERFECT FOR US!

  • 5 of 5
We come to the Boston regularly to visit our granddaughter. We usually stay in the center of the city to be close, but this trip we chose the gloucester quilter of Cape Anne and it proved to be the nicest place we've ever stayed: clean, quiet, comfortable, good light and good views. We took commuter rail into the city 3 times, and the train was on-time and comfortable, and we avoided the hassle and expense of finding parking. We got to run/walk along the beautiful ocean beach of east gloucester each day and enjoy excellent nearby restaurants in the evenings (especially Rocky Neck's Rudder restaurant). Our hosts, Rebecca and Dot, were kind and provided everything we needed. I recommend the gloucester quilter apartment without reservation.

GREAT PROPERTY, WISH WE COULD HAVE STAYED LONGER

  • 5 of 5
We lived west of Boston for 12 years, and moved to Indiana 10 years ago. We decided to head to Boston over Spring break in order to see friends and play tourists.

This property worked very well for parents and 4 teens. The hosts were very helpful, with many thoughtful touches such as the Stop & Shop frequent shopper card. We had lunch in town and the recommendation was spot-on.

It was our first experience with VRBO, and based on this positive introduction, it won't be our last!

A GREAT FIND IN GLOUCESTER

  • 5 of 5
I travel often to Gloucester from New Jersey on business, all seasons, and often stay in one of the local hotels or Marriotts down in Danvers. This time around I decided to check out VRBO to see what was available in the Gloucester area. Since my husband often comes along on my trips, it was great to have a full kitchen, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms! Yes, I said 2 bathrooms! And a lovely open TV Room/ Diningroom. The view is beautiful, the beds are comfortable and Dot & Rebecca (the innkeepers) are sweet.

I look forward to staying again & again. It would feel like coming home.

AMAZING GETAWAY !!

  • 5 of 5
Myself,along with my girlfriend and my son spent six nights at this wonderful house. Throughout our trip We absorbed this special Gloucester feeling to the fullest.We walked various trails and visited a few parks and historiccemetaries.The Hammond castle was very interesting and unique.We ventured off in day trips to Boston,Rockport and Salem.Also journeyed to Portsmouth N.H. and Portland M.E. and enjoyed beautiess sites along the way as well as delicious seafood.Even though we are fans of the twenty seven time world champion N.Y. Yankees we could not help but get caught up with the excitement while watching the Red Sox march to the World Series title. Dot & Becca were absolutely fabulous hosts whom made us feel welcome and comfortable immediately. There is absolutley no reason to look for any other place to stay if you are searching for rental property in this area. Well done Dot & Becca !!!
