WATERFRONT APARTMENT FOR 2 OVER LOOKING THE ANNISQUAM RIVER

Gloucester - Annisquam Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom With Spectacular Water Views

'Cape Ann'- the Massachusetts Cape named after a Queen-not an ugly fish!

If you have never been to Cape Ann before-- you don't know what you are missing! If you have been here you most likely can't wait to return. This area is magical! It's a jewel : white sandy beaches as well as areas of rocky coastline. Theater, great restaurants, whale watching, deep sea fishing, art galleries, museums, kayaking, biking, hiking and so much more.

An hour or less to Salem Ma., Kittery Maine factory outlet stores, fall foliage, Logan Airport, and antiquing in Essex, Ipswich or Rowley to name a few! If you want to explore-- there's plenty of it to do! If being 'still' is what you need, we are offering you a beautiful waterfront apartment for 2 that we call 'Sleepy Hallow'. Furnished with brand new queen sized bed and queen sized pull out couch, we are confident you will be comfortable. New linens, rugs, bed pillows and drapes as well. You will absolutely love staying here over-looking the Annisquam River and the back side of Wingaersheek Beach. We provide towels, umbrella, chairs and cooler for your use at the beach.

Your private deck offers a brand new gas grill, comfy teak cushioned deck chairs with side table, flowers, umbrella and the most fabulous view of sunsets you can imagine.

Inside we have flat screen HDTV, DVD, JVC CD player with radio, internet access and washer drier on site. Games, books and Cape Ann Info for your enjoyment.

Our full kitchen has all you could need including everything to cook a lobster dinner!

At low tide you can walk down onto the hard packed sand through a right of way and spend hours swimming, walking, reading, boat-watching and more. At high tide you can launch your kayak off of another right of way that are both completely visible from your deck. The apartment is on the second floor of our home where we reside year-round. We are 2 adult females living with 3 elderly dogs aged 14, 13 and 12. We have hens on site ( no rooster ) providing fresh eggs daily which are complimentary to you on request. One of us has lived in Gloucester since birth and we have owned and operated a number of local businesses over the years. We are very familiar with the hospitality industry and are confident we can help make your stay memorable. This is our second year renting for vacationers as we have previously had full time tenants. Winter rentals are also available. We are especially eager to give you our best. We look forward to your call. Paula Parsons and Debra Callahan

This house was acquired by my father through marriage in 1965. He adored this location!! We acquired it in 1999 and built the upstairs apartment for him. After his passing we decided to redo the entire space again for the purpose we now offer. We absolutely love it as much as he did and never take it for granted!

We spent 3 days here in late May and we found it completely delightful. The apartment is spacious and the view of the cove is spectacular at any time of day. There are huge windows in the living room and bedroom that have an unobstructed view of the river and it was wonderful to watch the tides come and go and the many birds. The location was wonderfully convenient for sight-seeing but had a real sense of privacy. The apartment was nicely equipped and the owners friendly and helpful. My husband and I were sorry to leave! We felt completely at home and will return here when we are back in the area.

Memories To Last a Life Time!

  • 5 of 5
The views are spectacular, the ambience is tranquil and the apartment was extremely clean with attention to details. Life time Gloucester residents / owners (Paula and Deb) are the perfect hostesses who are always their to provide you with helpful tips regarding the fabulous restaurants, the antique and art locations as well as the hundreds of beaches throughout Cape Ann. In short, the flavor of Gloucester is captured in this one of a kind river front property! So take the time to reflect and / or enjoy the adventures of your surroundings for life just doesn't get any better than this! Sincerely Yours, Sheila

Beautiful location

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week in this lovely waterfront home. It was glorious to wake up looking out the window at the light creeping across the Annisquam River. The apartment is very well appointed with everything you need. The homeowners were so helpful with recommendations for dinner and whale watching and all sorts of other things to do on beautiful Cape Ann. We enjoyed Gloucester so much that we were reluctant to leave even to take the train into Boston. Neither of us had ever been to Gloucester, but this will not be our last trip and this will be our home away from home!

We had a great week at the apartment and couldn't of asked for anything more. It was clean and well stocked and a very comfortable bed. We especially appreciated the use of the washer and dryer. My husband enjoyed having fresh eggs for breakfast thanks to Deb's chickens. Beautiful flowers every where and an awesome view of the water from the apartment window. Thanks Paula and Deb we enjoyed visiting with you two.

Lovely Apartment! Great Hosts!

  • 5 of 5
This apartment was exactly as described and had the added benefit of lovely owners! We had a wonderful visit that completely fulfilled our expectations. The owners supplied everything we could have possibly needed and were a true joy to deal with. The bed was super comfortable with new, clean bedding. We could not have asked for anything more!
