This 2BR apartment comfortably accommodates a family of four on vacation, in town for a wedding or graduation stay, 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 dining room table that can seat 4, 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 manage this property. I live in the first floor below theis 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 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.
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!
