NOTE: We do not rent extended stays. Two week maximum.

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 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 - 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!

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.

Warm welcome in Gloucester

  • 5 of 5
My family (2 adults and 3 kids) had a fabulous time in Gloucester/Cape Ann, much to the credit of warm hostesses Rebecca and Dot. The apartment had everything we needed, including beach towels, coolers/toys and bed linens (a big plus, and normally only available through a service). The location was perfect to see all the sites in the area, including Halibut Point State Park (a favorite), Rockport and all the fun to be had in Gloucester proper. We were surprised just how many outstanding restaurants, cafes, delis, etc. there are in the immediate area. We plan to be back in the near future!

Relaxation Personified

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay in 'Glosta'. The appartment has everything and I mean everything, travelling from England the huge beach towels meant a lot, freed up a lot of case room, the pool was a welcome treat each morning and the view over the harbour so relaxing. The beach is a good 10 mins walk b ut well worth it. Amenities in town are a drive but 5 mins only, Rocky Neck and some restaurants can be walked for those who don't mind a hill and a 15 min walk. The house and area is so tranquil

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5
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!
