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

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.

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
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.
We love sharing our views, pool and property with guests. Gloucester is such a great area to visit and vacation!
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.
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.
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
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.
We really enjoyed our stay. It was great for two couples. We both could have our private time. They really need better directions to fine the location. A GPS was of little help.
Perfect home with gracious hosts. Thanks for a relaxing getaway...the view was incredible and was the perfect trip for fall. The accommodations were wonderful. Thanks for the personal touches and your info!
Gloucester has some of the *best* whale watching in the world - operates May - Oct.
