This family home was purchased by our parents in 1976. Our father was raised in Rockport and Cape Ann is home to many family members and friends. Currently 'The Farm', our childhood home, is owned by six siblings. Although two continue to live in Gloucester, the remaining four consider charming Gloucester our beloved hometown. It is a special place, especially during the warm months when one can fully enjoy the many opportunities to be seaside. We are new to renting the house for the summer. It's a fascinating granite house surrounded by acres of quiet woods. Our family has experienced years of wonderful celebrations and memories in this house. We wish the same for you and your families.

Deb Lejins and Shera Marston purchased this house in 1976

Our mother was initially attracted to this property for many reasons. First it was big enough to convene her large and extended family. Second, she loved to garden and maintained several vegetable and flower gardens. Third she loved animals and kept dairy goats, a llama, a macaw, dogs and cats - all had a place at the farm.

'The Farm' consists of the main house and four other buildings (barn, tool shed, forge and water tower - all occupied by year round tenants) on a multi acre piece of property. All are made from locally quarried granite. Each is one of a kind.

This property is an excellent choice for those who enjoy the outdoors in an amazing one of a kind setting.

Great for family gatherings!

Fantastic Week in beautiful Gloucester!

  • 5 of 5
We have just returned from another phenomenal week in Gloucester. This was our first stay on the Farm and we hope to return for many summers to come. The house was clean, spacious and perfect for a group of families. The children and dogs loved the grounds for exploring. The kitchen had every utensil or dish we could need for large meals at home. Deb and Chick were welcoming and kind. It is a four minute drive to the gourmet Willow Rest, fifteen to the beaches or downtown of Gloucester. Thank you for the opportunity to stay in this hidden gem.

perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5
This house was spectacular! Very big with beautiful architecture. A very "english cottage" feel. The kitchen was well stocked with any utensil we needed. Several bedrooms accommodated multiple couples. The yard was so beautiful, with a sprawling front lawn with so many beautiful wild flowers. We spent the majority of our stay grilling on the patio and playing lawn games. Gloucester center is a short 10-15 minute drive and there are a variety of beautiful beaches! My friends and I hope to stay her again at this little slice of heaven!

Wonderful Family Home

  • 5 of 5
Our multi-generational family stayed at the Farm for a long weekend. There was lots of space to spread out, comfortable beds, and a well stocked kitchen for family meals together. The home was clean and had everything we needed. We explored Dogtown Common (house had a trail map!), Gloucester, and Newburyport. It was very quiet and restful for everyone. The kids loved exploring all the nooks and crannies of this house. Deb was great to deal with and worked with our different arrival times. As pointed out in the description, there are stairs in the house. Some quite steep. Mostly it is 2 or 3 steps up or down (think split level home). This could be an issue for someone travelling with very small children or someone with limited mobility. We thought it just added to the fun, quirky nature of the house.

A Week of Heaven

  • 5 of 5
My husband, daughters, son-in-laws , one grandchild and Teddy an Irish Wheaton had a wonderful stay in this home while attending the Easter holiday and a family wedding. The house is beautiful, spacious, clean, well stocked and surrounded by beautiful trails, paths, gardens and warm, friendly, musical neighbors. The neighbors were so friendly they invited us to a concert at a local tavern for a wonderful night of rock and roll music with gifted nationally known musicians at a local tavern. These successful artist returned from music careers all over the country to Gloucester
to raise their families in the beautiful town. That night was one of many highlights of our trip.
Gloucster and the surrounding area is beautiful beyond description. Charming, artist colonies, rugged coastline with scenic beaches, lighthouses, fisherman, whales and great restaurants a stones throw from the house. We spent a day in Boston watching the first Marathon since the 2013 tragic events and it was wonderful to see the courage and spirit of the Boston people.
I would come again and stay longer because the house is wonderful and the area holds so much to explore. Deb (the owner) could not have been nicer or more responsive to questions both prior and during our stay.

Family weekend at The Farm

  • 5 of 5
Family members from Texas and Florida recently arrived at The Farm for a long weekend celebration.The moment we arrived , we were in love with this beautiful home. We explored every delightful nook and cranny with enthusiasm . The children adored the house, calling it a castle . It even has a "dungeon" ,a wooden bridge, and squirrel gargoyles! This lovely home provided plenty of room for a large family to spread out. While some of us lounged watching tv , others hiked through the lovely surrounding woods, enjoyed the stone patio or sunned on the lawn. The large kitchen was well appointed with everything we needed to cook several meals and was a great spot for the entire family to congregate. The bedrooms were all comfy and provided all the amenities. Chick, the property manager was friendly, very helpful and informative. There is a nice gourmet grocery close by and Annisquam boasts the wonderful Market Restaurant. We really love everything about this place.The quietness of the setting ,the beautiful surroundings ,the character and comfort of the house add up to a wonderful gathering spot. Our family cannot wait to return to The Farm.
