Manchester House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4

Located in desirable Beverly Cove this delightful larger unit of the estate's carriage house, includes shared use of the swimming pool, tennis court, private beach and hot tub. Just half a mile away is West Beach, which is open only to residents of Beverly Farms.

Enjoy the amazing outdoor living space of Malt Hill's 25 acres, an estate often visited by Henry James in the late 19th century. It includes a long stretch of private coastline, manicured lawns and wooded areas for you to investigate. The rental, was once the carriage house to the estate which has been painstakingly converted into 3 units.

The lower level is Malt Hill 2 bedroom which provides living space for 4 people (or up to 10 if you rent all 3 units) and has a couple of portable air conditioning units. Each unit has a separate entrance and boasts incredible detail and charm. This 2 bedroom unit is the newest addition to the carriage house complete with a master king bedroom and bunk beds adorned with an artist's rendering of a seashell mosaic and fresco. There is an open dining and living area and a fully applianced kitchen as well as a full bath with shower and tub.

Guests of Malt Hill can also enjoy shared use of the estate swimming pool, hot tub and tennis court. In addition to West Beach, (5-10 minute walk) meander down a path from the carriage house and cross railroad tracks which will lead you to the estate's private rocky/sandy beach. A picturesque "Oyster Camp" has been built on the grounds which adds a quiet venue for reading, drawing or getting away from it all. Speak with your Guest Experience Specialist about special rates for renting the entire carriage house (3 units) including use of the Oyster Camp.. Plenty of parking and full size laundry facilities shared with the other units.

Reviewer Comments:

We enjoyed our stay at Malt Hill. The apartment was clean and comfortable. The grounds of the estate are quite beautiful; it was an excellent place to enjoy the fall foliage. We only had 2 problems, one of which was fairly quickly handled. We couldn't figure out how to get the gas heater to work, so we had to make several calls to get help on that. Once we got the help, the heater kept us warm all week. The other problem was bugs. Each day we had to kill a few earwigs, spiders, or other creepers. We discovered a large gap in the weather stripping on the front door. Perhaps that's how so many bugs got in. Otherwise, the apartment worked well for us.

Reviewer Comments:

The bottom 2 bedroom apartment is nice enough..The pro's of the property:

We adored the grounds of the property, sitting by the lotus pond or walking down by the Oyster Camp and ocean views of Bakers island and the salt marsh...

We loved the location. Manchester by the Sea, in particular, Calas, Captain Dusty's ice cream , Crosby's market and the drive to Rockport and Bearskin neck..the Gardens are enchanting they can only compare to possibly Monet's garden, a royal garden or a public garden..one of the most spectacular private gardens I have seen.

The Con's: The property was loaded with mosquitoes, and I would recommend bringing plenty of bug spray. I used multiple times each day and still left covered with bites.. looked like I spent the week camping in the woods. Apartment had a lot of spiders, and beatles, mosquitoes, etc..not a big fan of bugs inside the house. No electrical outlet located in bathroom for hairdryer. When drying hair in other rooms, circuit breaker would pop and power would go I assume the outlets cannot handle this..clothes dryer only works on timed dry, if you set it to a preset dry function it shuts off after 5 minutes...We were a family of 4 and only had 3 bath towels, 2 of the 3 had bleach stains on them. We never used the pool because it was cool outside and it was not very conveniently located to the apartment...also because traveling from out of state, by airplane we did not have room to pack beach/ pool towels...I think these should be provided for the guests since property has a beach and a pool.

Manager responded on 8/7/2014:

Thanks for the review, Lisa! We're glad that you all enjoyed the lovely grounds of Malt Hill, they are truly breathtaking. The local Cape Ann area definitely has a great deal of culture and perfect summer activities on offer.

So sorry to hear about the trouble with the bugs-- all that natural beauty does come with its caveats and this year’s unusually rainy season has resulted in an increase in mosquitos. We will see what we can do to abate them in the future and to keep all that wonderful nature on the outside! To respond to your points: There IS an outlet in the bathroom that you didn't see--probably because it's to the right of the

The location was ideal, and the grounds of the estate were like a park, beautiful maintained and picturesque from any angle. The rental units were very comfortable and well equipped. The owner, Joan was very friendly, responsive and hard working to make sure her guests were satisfied.

A magical spot. Feels like a European villa on the ocean. Very private with everything you could want - pond and waterfall, beach, pool, tennis, firepit, bike to beach and town.

We stayed in the 2 bedroom unit for a week. Expanding in to the other suites as more family joined us. We had 10 family members staying and still had plenty of space and privacy. It was an ideal setting for a family gathering.Everything about the Malt Hill was charming and well thought out. The grounds are truly a must see. We will be back. Thank you Joan!

Reviewer Comments:

We loved this property. It was beautiful and very comfortable. If there were not shells on the walls we would have thought we we in a Tuscan villa. Even though there are 3 units we had privacy and the kids loved the pond and the salt marsh. We usually

stay in rock port, so we had to get use to a different location, that was my only complaint, but we will stay there again. The place is amazing, I highly recommend it, as does my husband and 2 girls (5,9).
