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 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!

WHAT A FANTASTIC FIND!

  • 5 of 5
We can't say enough good things about our stay at Summerwind Cottage in Gloucester. Linda has created a beautiful place that is spotless and has every amenity included. And her warm and pleasant personality made us feel welcomed right from the start, even when we gave her little advanced notice. Her recommendations of places to go and things to do made our visit to the area very enjoyable - enabling us to go places that only locals know about. We would certainly stay at Summerwind again and recommend it very highly!

BEAUTIFUL HOME WITH ALL OF THE ESSENTIALS.

  • 5 of 5
Pleasantly surprised. we were greeted by Linda and she acquainted us with the home and the area. Plenty of info as far as restaurants and local activities in the area. Looked exactly like the listing. We Cooked a lot of our meals here. The kitchen was equipped with everything needed. Also spent a lot of time on the deck enjoying cocktails and dinner with relatives (from Beverly) . The beds were a little firm for our liking, but to each their own. All in all a very enjoyable week! Would highly recommend to anyone that likes the Glouster- Rockport area .Thank you and hope to return soon. Ron and Corinne Hyde Stuart, Florida

Owner's Response: Dear Ron & Corrine,

It was such a pleasure meeting you all, we are so pleased that you enjoyed our well-equipped kitchen and spacious deck. Sorry the beds were too firm for you folks (most of my guests ask if they are firm enough... go figure!) We love to make our guests feel at home and to give suggestions about the area, as well as encourage them to make their own little discoveries. Please come back and stay anytime. Thanks again!

TWO SISTERS FROM UK GIVE THIS 5+ STARS

  • 5 of 5
If anything the listing description and photos don't do justice to this amazing cottage. It is spacious, light and airy and beautifully refurbished. It was spotlessly clean and well-maintained and felt like a home rather than a rental property. Great location and incredibly view. Linda and Hank are really welcoming but we saw little of them as we spent a lot of time checking out the excellent list they left of things to do and see. We loved Lobsta Land for breakfast, coffee at Zumis in Ipswich, walks on Crane Beach, meditation at Harbor Yoga and Meditation Centre with Chris Crotty, dinner at Ducksworths, whalewatching with Cape Ann Whale Watch, photographing the autumn colours in the White Mountains (dragged ourselves away from the cottage for a night to stay at Highland Centre at Crawford Notch- great base for some amazing walks). Would highly recommend Summerwind Cottage and the Gloucester area.
