Guestbook comments from the owner

For our family "Glosta" is everything undeniable about MA all rolled up into one beautiful small city. Linda - thanks for creating a magical place for us to stay - it's perfect.

Highlights include:

• Smokin' Jim's baby back ribs (across the street)

• the very tasty linguine w/white clam sauce at Espresso's (super closeby)

• Rockport's kitchen shop "Lula's" is one of a kind

• Rocky Neck was our favorite neighborhood. The old paint factory is a piece of history to behold as is the rest of the community. Everything about Rocky Neck is special.

• Capt. Joe & Son's lobsters are delicious and provided us with several wonderful home-cooked evenings.



Thank you again, Linda.

A most comfortable, relaxing and memorable stay!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderfully relaxing week in Summerwind. The location was even more perfect than expected and the house had every household convenience. I can't think of anything that would have made our stay at your property more perfect.

Immaculate, cozy and relaxing.

  • 5 of 5
Modern kitchen with all the conveniences of home - washer/dryer, gas stove and well equipped kitchen for dining in after a busy day.
Air conditioning minimizes discomfort of high humidity typical of New England summers. Quiet setting with gracious helpful hosts.
Artistically and thoughtfully decorated by hosts with relaxation in mind. The nice deck offers a great vantage point for fireworks viewing! Gloucester has a strong fishing and seafaring history.
Linda and Hank are welcoming and down to earth.

A LOVELY VACATION EXPERIENCE

  • 5 of 5
This is a gem of a find in the heart of Gloucester. You cannot be more conveniently located to all types of activities whether it be exploring downtown or going to the beach. it is a very short distance to Good Harbor Beach and Niles Beach. Its elevated location on a hill overlooking a harbor give this house a private feel without being far away from everything. The house is nicely appointed. The open floor plan gives ample space for eating and lounging. Beautiful sunset viewing on the large deck. We had a great time. Great for teens because of location. Book it and have a great vacation :).

Everything was perfect!

  • 5 of 5
Spent a week with my wife, daughter and son in law and found the cottage to be perfect in every way. Linda and Hank were great hosts-there when you needed the and sensitive to your privacy as well. Great floor plan, comfortable, and the decorating is beautiful-check out the photos on line. Very Close to Rocky Neck, Good Harbor Beach, and downtown Gloucester. Short drive to Rockport (Bearskin Neck), Crane Beach, Ipswich, Essex, and Salem. Take the Harbor Tour of your choice-we went completely around Cape Ann! Loved the view from the deck!

A great holiday destination and a lovely cottage.

  • 5 of 5
We were delighted when we first walked into the cottage. If anything it was nicer than the pictures. It was light and airy and bigger than we expected. It was comfortable - we needed to try the air conditioning and the heating while we were there and both worked very well. The bedrooms were comfortable and the kitchen had everything we needed. We ate in quite often because we enjoyed sitting on the deck in the evening watching the sun go down over the harbour - a lovely relaxing end to the day. With regards to location, the cottage was perfect. We walked into Gloucester regularly (we liked the local brewery) and also to Rocky Neck where we had some great meals and bought some lovely arty souvenirs. Linda and Hank, the owners, were so helpful and fun to chat to. They were perfect hosts. We would definately recommend this property and if we ever come back to Gloucester, there is nowhere we would rather stay than Summerwind Cottage.

Summerwind Cottage

  • 5 of 5
"We had a wonderful time at Summerwind Cottage! Linda, you are a wonderful host! Your list of favorite things to do was very helpful! Our first day/evening we had dinner at Seaport Grille which was delicious. Throughout the week, we spent a day at Good Harbor Beach & took the train to Boston a couple of different days. The girls got pedi/manicures at Perfect Nails, and the best day of all was whale watching on Seven Seas Tours. We also enjoyed the deck, sunsets, grill and the cottage itself. The hutch with all the brochures on local sites was also very helpful… we were able to pick Salem as another days adventure. The iPod/iphone speaker was a reminder were on vacation and able to play a steady stream of our favorite music! The photo of the dining room here is exactly like this in person. The whole cottage is very clean and homey! The fresh tulips upon arrival where beautiful! Linda...you are a wonderful owner and now friend! My husband already was saying lets go back! Great area and stay!!

Thanks for wonderful memories!
Jim, Lori, Emily & Delaina

Summerwind cottage is centrally located in desirable East Gloucester - 5 Minutes from downtown by car, Good Harbor Beach, Niles Beach, Rocky Neck Art Colony, restaurants, shops, supermarket, theater, cinema, nightlife and train to Boston. Right in the middle of it all but on a peaceful private lane overlooking Gloucester's scenic harbor.

Rockport's famous shops are a 10 min. drive away.
