Guestbook comments from the owner

The house was occupied from January to June 2010 by a family whose child was attending Landmark School for a semester. They wrote to us at the end of their stay: "living here has worked really well for us. This house has been just right, near school and airport as well as nice and cosy in the winter. This is a lovely area, I have enjoyed being here very much"

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this house for two weeks last summer with my husband and two boys. We had a wonderful time. I was teaching in Boston at the time, and the commute was a breeze - short walk to the station to get the train into North Station, and coming back was also easy . The house is very comfortable and well-appointed. I love to cook, and so was especially pleased with how well the kitchen was organized. There's a grill outside which we used multiple times. We were there over the fourth of July and enjoyed the parade in town. We didn't get to meet Hughes, but his wife Francoise was great - very polite and helpful. My husband and I still talk about the time we spent there - and he's a hard one to please!

Wonderful new home close to town

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for two months in the fall, and could not have had a better stay. The house is almost brand new and is very comfortable. The location is ideal - a short walk to the restaurants and shops in downtown and the train to Boston. There are a lot of nice places for walking or jogging along the ocean nearby. The owners live nearby and are great - will come right over if you have any problems.

We would highly recommend staying here!

We would rent it again

  • 5 of 5

Francoise and Hughes are wonderful hosts: showing us all we needed to know about the house, giving us tips on the best restaurants, answering all of our questions about the area, and then giving us all tghe privacy we needed. Our week long stay included two days of heavy rain so it became very important that the house was so comfortable - the satellite TV and internet access definitely came in handy! If you are looking for a beautiful, quiet and restful vacation with interesting history, this is a wonderful place. We loved the house, Manchester-by-the-Sea, Singing Beach, Gloucester and Rockport and will definitely rent this vacation home again.

Charming house near town and beach

  • 5 of 5

This house was lovely. The first floor is well laid out with an open kitchen, dining room and living room plus a half bath. The living room opens up to a patio. The owners take care in keeping the patio landscaped, with new flowers put in right before our arrival.

The house is very convenient to town. It was a ten minute walk to downtown (including the train to Boston) and a short drive to the beach. Plenty for kids to do between the beach, playground and farms in surrounding towns.

The owners were a pleasure to deal with. If it weren't for all the rain, it would have been perfect!
