Wonderful September 2015 stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit but certainly won't be our last. The owner is very helpful and accommodating. The house is classic New England beach style, charmingly old with lots of character. It has a much larger and better kitchen than most reasonably priced rentals. The location is just steps from ocean view and beach access and the views are just gorgeous. The house is about 3 or 4 miles from downtown Gloucester and Rockport, so it is a quiet neighborhood and driving is required to reach shopping and dining destinations. My wife and I were alone, but I'd call this house a very family friendly place for families with children. Thanks, Jock, for such a nice experience!

Amazing Property!

  • 4 of 5

The best part of this property is the land surrounding it. Our 3 dogs enjoyed running on the beach after 6 pm. It is such a big property that is great for walking. There is also a sunset fire pit on a cliff that is great for making s'mores. The house is well equipped and is comfortable. There are some minor repairs the house needs, but overall a great place to vacation. Jock was very accommodating and easy to work with.

Awesome home and property!

  • 5 of 5

Maisy and I stayed at this lovely home for the month of October. It was wonderful to be in the area again. Having this cozy home away from home, the amazing property to roam and to be so near the sea was everything I had hoped for and more. Thanks Jock for the opportunity to stay in your home.

A rich and genuine Cape Ann experience

  • 5 of 5

We were immediately comfortable and relaxed in Jock's family home, which felt little-changed from how it must have been when he grew up there. With obvious pride, he generously provided a fun and informative tour of the property, steeped in significant family history. The house is spacious and open with lots of light, simply but warmly furnished with wicker and lots of nautical and sea-themed art. The kitchen is huge and has everything one could need and more. We cooked lobster several times! We loved having our two Newfies with us and taking long walks each morning up the hill, along the path overlooking Hodgkin's cove, down to the beaches, and winding back up through the woods, all without leaving the property! This was a perfect relaxing vacation, keeping it simple while having it all. Thank you Jock.

Loved our week in Annisquam

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in your house. The house was perfect for our needs. it was comfortable, clean and had a very well equipped kitchen. there were even spices that were freshly bought. We loved having access to the walking trails and beaches. Jock was awesome is providing what we needed. We loved the walk around the property so that we could see what was available. I sat on Sandy beach everyday and loved it.

I would definitely recommend this property to friends and family. In terms of restaurants, we enjoyed lobsta Land. We did go on the Thomas Lannon schooner cruise and liked it as well. It also really helped that the weather was amazing.

Thank you Jock for a great week.

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The Ledge house was absolutely perfect for our family. We were so thankful to be able to bring our dogs along also. The loved the beach! The 2 private beaches were wonderful and our kids had so much fun building sand castles and searching for sea life during low tide! The house had plenty of room, and was fully equipped with everything you could need or want!

We loved it!
