The property is maintained and managed by two sisters, one of which lives in Gloucester.

Maureen Malloy purchased this house in 1961

What makes this house unique

The house is situated up high, some of us (older folks)simply enjoy sitting on the deck to talk and talk and talk while watching the activities on the river.Other guests might swim, kayak or just enjoy water activities. There is plenty to do locally. Whale watching, boating, great beaches, night life, museums, shops, and great restaurants.

Charming riverfront home

  • 5 of 5

We recently had a wonderful stay at this home in Gloucester. It has a fantastic view of the water and is in such a quiet neighborhood that we had wonderful peaceful mornings and evenings watching the boats go by. My kids loved exploring the shore at low tide and collecting shells and hermit crabs. The house confortably fit our large group and everyone was impressed with how well kept the house is, the family really cares for the property. We have been traveling to Gloucester every year for a long time and this is by far the best place we have stayed. Unique, comfortable and charming New England coastal cottage. Parking is a little tight on the narrow road but was still able to accommodate all our many vehicles! It is also less than 10 minute drive down to the Harbor. We hope to return to this home on our next trip to Gloucester.

Family gathering

  • 5 of 5

We came up from Texas for my niece's wedding. There were 9 of us staying here. PLENTY of room and kitchen is very well stocked of any cookware you may need. We had a shrimp and lobster boil one night,(plenty of lobster pots) and sat on the deck to relax. Weather was wonderful, had to sleep with a light blanket a couple of nights.

The house may seem outdated, but if you are interested in the New England experience and want a comfy place to stay, THIS IS IT!!!! ( If I ever have the pleasure to come up this way again I will definitely stay here.) Photos of the house are great, lets you know the quaintness. The Deck off the back has amazing views of the river and are GREAT for morning coffee and evening cocktails.

Gloucester is a quaint little town and Rockport is just up the way, Boston is great place to spend the day and head back here for the evening of relaxation.

The owner is VERY nice and personable.

HIGHLY recommend this jewel of peaceful bliss to ALL!!!!

Great rental for a large family

  • 4 of 5

When we rented this house we had twelve people staying with us--five adults and seven children. The view from the balcony and two of the bedrooms is absolutely amazing. The house overlooks the Annisquam River and has access to a dock. My four boys range in age from 5 to 12 years old and they absolutely LOVED the river. Each morning at low tide they were able to go down to the water and collect hermit crabs by the hundreds. (Catch and release, of course!) At night, the adults were able to sit outside on the balcony and see millions of stars. It was very peaceful and relaxing.

The house is also located about 8 minutes from Good Harbor beach, which is very clean and has an absolutely gorgeous view of the rocky coast. If you choose to go to the beach, go at low tide so you can walk to a nearby rocky island while the sandbar is still exposed.

The house has pretty much everything a family might need in order to have a comfortable stay-- lobster pots, a martini shaker, beach towels, lounge chairs, wireless internet, TV/DVD, and fully-stocked kitchen with every cooking gadget imaginable. Other guests had left behind useful items such as paper plates and cups, laundry detergent, coolers, and shampoo.

Initially, we were a little worried because the advertisement did not show the bedrooms. We were pleasantly surprised to find all the rooms to be small, but comfortable. As I mentioned before, two of the rooms overlook the river. My husband and I fell asleep each night to the sound of the loons and bullfrogs.

The one thing that kept me from rating this house as "Excellent" is the fact that there is only one bathroom with a shower. (And it happens to be in the basement) The upstairs bathroom is nice, and it has a claw-foot tub. The washroom on the main level is a half-bath, off the kitchen. The bathroom in the basement is very clean and modern but not convenient to the upstairs bedrooms. The only time the shower situation became an issue for us was the day we all went to the beach...and everyone wanted to shower all at the same time when we came home. Other than that, we were able to work around each other for shower time.

If you are looking for a brand new vacation rental with stainless steel appliances, this is not the house for you. This home is not fancy. However, if you like an older place with lots of charm--this place is perfect. The owner was easy to work with and we would definitely recommend this rental to a friend.
