This is a new home built in 2010. The original property was purchased in 2002 and later subdivided for the new construction.

This location is very quiet and all nature all the time. Only the sound of birds will wake you in the morning.

EXTREMELY NICE BUNGALOW IN A BEAUTIFUL SETTING

  • 5 of 5
This lovely split-level bungalow was perfect for our family vacation! It is located in a peaceful neighborhood, has a generous back yard and is surrounded by exquisitely beautiful foliage. (Especially in autumn!) Our family of three adult couples appreciated the design that allowed each couple privacy while providing an open area for gathering. The home is well appointed with quality appliances, cookware and utensils. The weather didn't allow us to use the grill on the balcony, but we enjoyed playing games (supplied by the owner) by the fire and watching finches and cardinals dining at the bird feeder on the balcony. Each bedroom has access to the balcony, as does the living room. The elevator came in handy for carrying suitcases, groceries, etc., to the upper floor as well as for persons with mobility issues. Access to the beach is just a short walk down the road. We loved staying at the bungalow and recommend it highly.

BEAUTIFUL HOME

  • 5 of 5
We recently enjoyed a most pleasant stay at the bungalow. We had a group of about 10, with some coming and going at various times. We rented the house and apartment below. We had ample space for all, with quiet spaces to be found throughout the house. We also had our Labrador retriever with us, and he loved the yard and balconies. The downstairs shower was perfect for cleaning him off after our beach walks!
The home was very well stocked with high quality furnishings and fixtures, and was immaculate, making our stay very comfortable. Everything that you could need for a memorable vacation was included. My 90 year old mother made use of the scooter and elevator. We thoroughly enjoyed using the kitchen. The owners thought of everything!
The area is charming. Walking distance to two beaches, a short distance to hiking, biking and sightseeing. So much to do in that area, or just relax with a book in the hammock! The owner was very thoughtful and considerate. Very helpful.
It was a very memorable, lovely week. We will be back!

PERFECT FOR OUR FAMILY!

  • 5 of 5
Just returned from a wonderful week in Annisquam! My husband is in a power wheelchair and it is always nerve wracking to find truly accessible lodging especially with a vacation rental. But accessible it is and there were no issues to speak of. The drop off on to the decks was a little large but easily fixed with a piece of wood and everything else is exactly as described in the description.

The sleeping arrangements worked out perfectly for us. Since we had a toddler the 2nd story master suite was perfect and when the doors were closed you couldn't hear a thing...even with a loud UNO game going on. The older grandkids stayed in the apartment on the ground level and they were thrilled with their own space and the privacy they had. Every morning I would wake them up early and they would head down to the beach area to go kayaking or go exploring on the rocks looking for who knows what. After that we would usually head out for the day exploring the many beautiful small towns in the area.

The house is so well stocked and has everything you can possibly imagine. The kitchen is amazing and the owner encourages you to use the supplies they have on hand which is so nice. It was chilly and rainy a couple of days we were there so I borrowed a jacket and an umbrella. (someone in Gloucester even complimented me on my jacket and I got a little embarrassed!).

Things to do in the area? We enjoyed Gloucester a lot, especially the wholesale lobster place. We bought 15 lobsters and went back to the house and cooked them. What a feast we had that night! We took the boat ride to the different points of interest and loved it. (It's wheelchair accessible too thanks to a lot of passengers whose weight helped level the boat!). We ate at several of the restaurants and the meals were wonderful with very generous portions. We ate at the Lobster Pool and saw the most amazing sunset. Went to Salem MA, Portsmouth RI and ventured into Boston for a day. We loved every single day we were there.

What sticks in my mind the most is the friendliness of the people in Annisquam and especially in the Diamond Cove area. Everyone speaks and waves and makes you feel so welcome. Jill, the owner, goes above and beyond to make sure you and your family have the time of your life.

A REAL JEM

  • 5 of 5
The home was well situated and very close to a wonderful beach. It really felt like you were staying in a really nice neighbourhood. The house itself was well thought out with everything that you needed to have a wonderful holiday. The kitchen was well appointed, the air conditioning was well appreciated and the property and grounds were wonderful. The beds could have been a bit more comfortable and the furniture and bed coverings could have been of a higher quality',consistet with the rent. But overall, we had a wonderful time and there is alot of space in the house for have family and guests.

BEAUTIFUL HOUSE, WONDERFUL HOSTS, PEACEFUL STAY. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

  • 5 of 5
Beautifully designed and meticulously built house, perfect for a larger group to enjoy the charm of Annisquam and the surrounding area. Each bedroom is built almost like a separate suite with a private bathroom, giving each person and couple as much privacy as we want.

We stayed for a week and made day trips to Gloucester, Rockport, Salem, Marblehead, ... but also spent a few days just lounging around and snoozing in the backyard hammock. The nearby private beach is just a short walk away, through a lovely area of summer cottages.

Our hosts were very accommodating and helpful in navigating to the best lobster pound, the nicest restaurants or interesting sites. Overall, our stay was just the New England experience we'd imagined and we would love to come back next year!

WEDDING WITH EXTENDED FAMILY

  • 5 of 5
We felt like we had found a little bit of heaven for our wedding! We had many family members (4 generations!) stay with us, beautiful weather and a gorgeous backyard to enjoy. The house is so beautiful and well planned--there were places for everyone to gather or be on their own. Three decks! Walking to nearby beaches, amazing gardens on site. Jill, the architect and owner, was wonderful and thoughtful. It more than met our expectations and I would happily recommend it!
