About the property

4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths Sleeps 12

Thank you to those that rented this home in 2017 and rated it 5 Star. I have 2 cars parked on the grass beside the driveway. I updated the photos to show the cars on the grass at the house. This house is not a one star slum as a few have rated it. You have the new photos of what the house looks like to include the cars during the 2016 rental period. You be the judge. If you think the photos show a one star house with a junk yard. (An antique 1983 Chevy Camaro Z28 Mint body & a 2003 Cadillac, this is my so called Junkyard, Car wrecks, and Abandoned cars). Guess they do not like older cars. Lucky i take my 1987 Chevy Corvette with me. Less repairs i have to do with my american made Antique vehicles.

Rental Dates June through October 1st. Rental should be booked at least one month in advance. You will need to sign a lease and send it back. Keys are mailed to address on the lease when final payment is maid, 30 days before arrival date.

YMCA, Library, Town Hall, Post Office, About 50 Stores On Main Street, Fire Department, Museums, TennisCourt, Information, All under 15 minutes from the house. More to include StageFort Park For Picnics, & Weekend Bands. Dog Park, where you can safely socialize you dogs in 3 fenced sections.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean and supplied with everything you would ever need. Plenty of room and within walking distance to the harbor & great restaurants. Ed emailed all sorts of information about the area and there was also a book on site with everything printed out. We had no trouble getting around and finding all the sites. Great place!

Great location. Plenty of room. Read other reviews before booking.

  • 2 of 5

I hate to repeat what others have already written however even though this house has plenty of room and is in a great location, the cars on the lawn were disappointing. The reviews mentioning these didn't post until after we booked. The owner didn't mention them until an email the day before our stay was to start. We didn't use the basement bedroom because it was damp and cold. While the owner provides coffee, pasta, etc. all we used was coffee because we mostly ate out. Had the other reviews been there when I was searching for a rental home, I would not have booked this one.

Owner's Response: With this 3rd reviewer angry that I have cars at the house. I do not see what my families cars have to do with the comfort of the house. For anyone who reads this. There will be 2 cars at the property. If this bothers you, than this rental is not for you. As these people were so disappointed with the cars, they could not see the good in the house. If you CAN accept the cars, you will have the comfort of a large house in a great location. If you can not accept the cars, do what the reviewer claims she would have done and rent elsewhere. I am retired and restoring a 1983 Chevy Camaro Z28. I have been a back yard mechanic over 40 years. This is being restored for my family for when I am gone. If you do not like Classic, and Antique cars you may not understand the pride of keeping them on the road. The body and frame is mint, runs good, but working on exhaust and interior. The second car is a 2003 Cadillac Deville. Now that it has been fully aired that I have the nerve to have cars on my house property. It is time for you to choose. Ask yourself will the cars bother me so badly that I will not be able to enjoy my vacation. If that is so, than this rental is not for you. I do not want people to feel I am hiding something as some have. I really did not think it was going to be such a big negative thing. Again There are 2 cars parked on the grass beside the driveway. You have access to parking 3 cars in the driveway. A 1983 Chevy Camaro, and a 2003 Cadillac Deville are parked at this rental property. It is a very comfortable rental with 3 King sized beds & sleeps 12. If you can do better in Gloucester than by all means do so. High speed wireless.

The pictures totally misrepresented what we found when we arrived.

  • 1 of 5

The outside of the house had 3 junk cars in the drive way an on the front lawn The outside patio and surrounding area was totally unusable due to trash and debris littered about. The first floor bedroom had could not be used because the ceiling had huge holes in it. The second and third floor were dirty, animal fur balls all over the floors. The refrigerator was full of old left over food. The stove did not work,for which the owner rebated $300.00. The furniture was old an looked like it had not been cleaned in months.

This house has a lot of potential but needs a LOT of work before it should ever be rent again or the pictures should show what your really getting.

Owner's Response: First off the cars are not Junk. An Antique 1983 Chevy Camaro Z28 body is mint. A 2003 Cadillac. Please look at the new outdoor photo and see what these people consider a Junkyard. Than believe the Lies or the photos that do not lie. These cars are parked on the grass to allow 3 to 4 cars parking in the driveway. The Corvette showing in the driveway i take with me. No trash outside & no hole in basement bedroom. Made up stuff to lower the rating. Top row of photos are the old photos. Bottom row is what people got during the 2016 rental. Compare for yourself the updated photos. What you see is what you get.

Property is being renovated. Still needs to be finished.

  • 3 of 5

Ed was a very nice man. The bathrooms were clean, but the house is being updated. We didn't have an outdoor space to cook, so we bought a small grill. The front yard had abandoned vehicles and also needs to be cleaned up.

Owner's Response: Vehicles are not abandoned, Not Junk, and Not car wrecks. Picture of front outside of house updated to show vehicles parked on the grass. I take the Corvette with me so the driveway is empty for 3 mid size cars to park. If this sight of my Antique 1983 Chevy Camaro Z28 and 2003 Cadillac Deville is bothersome go elsewhere.
