Overview

Gloucester and 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 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.

NOTE: We do not rent extended 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. Just read our stellar 39+ reviews.

This apartment is on the second floor of our house, where we live, with amazing views of Gloucester 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 (with a hidden trundle bed for young children) 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 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.

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!

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

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.

Great Experience

  • 5 of 5
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.

Owner's Response: These guests were given our property address and many other resources well before they arrived. We are on very private road. We live in an old New England community, where many narrow streets make a close-knit neighborhood. I agree it is hard to find and past guest love it for that exact reason.
A week before each guest arrives, I equip them with a detailed driving map doc and a hyperlink to our location on Google Maps. I also give them our house phone line if they need to call if confused or disoriented. The guests from this review used neither.
We love having guests who appreciate how special and private our property is (as many other reviewers have noted) And I am these reviews enjoyed their time in our region while staying with us. They explored much and trusted our local recommendations more.

Memorable Visit to Gloucester

  • 5 of 5
We had a most wonderful stay in Gloucester. Our hostess's were friendly, helpful and fun! We had a fabulous view of the harbor and the sunsets were glorious! We would recommend this home and in fact are planning to rebook! It was a great location and our hostess's gave helpful information on sites and restaurants. The furnishings were comfortable and homey. We LOVED it! ;o)

Owner's Response: We share our property with many lovely guests but we truly loved having John and his cousin stay with us! Gloucester has the oldest art colony in America (Rocky Neck - less than a mile walk) and John is a plein aire painter. We helped John connect with local art associations and galleries, as well as best places to paint the morning light on the harbor. Can't wait for him to come back next September!

Loved Gloucester with the Quilter!

  • 4 of 5
The time at the Quilter's house in Gloucester was wonderful. Views of the harbor from the living room were beautiful. The garden and pool were special and private. It was ideal for two couples and the open floor plan made sharing the kitchen easy. Most of all, we enjoyed visiting with the owners. Advice on restaurants, sites, and transportation was tops.
