Beautiful ocean sunrises
This cozy cottage is nestled among large beautiful ocean-side homes; a wonderful area for walking and biking with little traffic. It slept four very comfortably; easy parking, fully equipped kitchen, wi-fi, etc. made our stay a breeze.
Marilyn was a gracious host; I felt I could call her about anything.
Wee Cottage is located between Rockport and Glouchester making it a short ride to either for swimming, fishing, shopping, and really great ice cream!
Wonderful little cottage in a quiet area but with easy acces to everything!
We loved our stay here! We were here for 10 days waiting to close on our house and Marilyn was a wonderful host. She stopped by once to meet the babies and otherwise gave us complete privacy. We had to call her one evening because the internet wasn't working and she called and had it fixed within the hour. The neighbors in the other cottages were very open and friendly as well and even recommended things to do in the area. We will definitely be recommending the Wee Cottage to all of our friends and family that visit!! Thank you for everything Marilyn!
A charming vintage cottage by the sea.
The cottage met our needs and the property is lovely with a view of the water. Marilyn was lovely to work with. We look forward to returning.
This cottage was very clean, cozy and comfortable! Beautiful view of the Atlantic with twin lighthouses! Much to do in surrounding areas! Would certainly return!!
We rented the Wee Cottage expecting to find the amenities that were advertised, not a major construction zone behind the house and a fire trap. Upon arrival at the cottage, the owner told us that there was construction behind the house and that on Monday they would be blasting. This was not divulged to us ahead of time. Upon entry into the cottage, I pointed out to the owner that screen was not attached to the screen door. The owner replied, "Oh I know. I just had that fixed" We then proceeded to unpack and found out that the wifi and cable was not working. We also found that the refrigerator would not keep food properly cooled. I called the owner immediately. The wifi and cable was addresses and working by Sunday. However we still needed to purchase many bags of ice for our cooler. Later that day we found out that the windows were screwed so that you could only open some of the windows about 4 inches. Some windows would not open at all. Since the window that only opened 4 inches was the only window exit in case of a fire, this proved to be dangerous. On Monday morning, we awoke to loud construction equipment about 20 feet behind the house. The house was filled with dust and diesel fumes in 95 degree temperatures. We notified the owner that due to the above issues we would be leaving. She agreed to refund us however, a month and a half later, we are still waiting, even after several phone calls, emails and texts where she promised to refund the money. DON"T rent this cottage!
Quiet location with many beaches nearby!
This was our second family vacation to Gloucester/Rockport area. This year we decided to do vacation rental by owner. We were all in agreement that staying in the cottage was more suitable and enjoyable for our family as opposed to staying in a nearby motel. Excellent location and Marilyn is a pleasure to deal with. This is a quiet area, and can fit four people comfortably. We were allowed to bring our dogs which made our trip complete.
It is always such a pleasure to have people enjoy their Cape Ann adventure while staying at the Wee Cottage...nice that the Super Moon Eclipse and surf helped to make your stay even more special! Hope to see you all again!
