I have 2 cars parked on the grass beside the driveway. If this is going to bother you read no further. Had bad ratings because of these cars. Accept this as part of my home or go elsewhere. I updated the photos. The top row 1 through 12 are the old photos. Photos 13 through 24 are the photos of what the house looked like during the 2016 rentals. This house is not a one star slum as a few have rated it. You have the new photos of what the house looked 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.

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.
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.
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.
The owner is very responsive, helpful, and great to work with, and the price for the weekend was extremely affordable. It's in walking distance to downtown on a very quiet street. We found the place to be very clean and tidy - don't let the old cars in the front yard deter you. Our group of 8 enjoyed our stay and would recommend this house to anyone.
The house is a short walk to the downtown area with lots of shops and restaurants; No need for a car during your stay! The owner was friendly and great to work with. He was very flexible with me on check-out/check-in time. The house is well appointed. There is everything a traveler needs!!
Owner was very helpful up to our stay providing guidance on places to visit. He also responded very quickly to any communication we had with him.
The location is good, very quiet and within walking distance to Gloucester downtown, harbour and beaches.
However, pictures on Homeaway's homepage are deceiving, you are being met with a carwreck graveyeard in the front of the house, patio on back is not at all red and nice looking, instead not maintained for many years, just as several dog shits were located around the house.
The description of the interior is also deceiving. The cellar, where 1 one of the bedrooms is located, stinks of "old moist cellar" and is inhabitable. The ceiling in the entrance of the cellar is non exsting. The 2 bedrooms on 2nd floor are not separated, but just one open space. The water pressure in the showers of both bathrooms is also hardly existing, so to take a shower takes ages, as very little water comes out. The airconditioning units are noisy and 1 did not work.
In general the interior of the house is dirty and is in need of a proper cleaning exercise.
Overall impression of the house is very poor, subsequently it is extremely overpriced, and we quite honestly felt cheated.
Main street shops just ten minutes walk away, explore over 50 local
shops from antiques to the Y.M.C.A.
Gloucester & Rockport are well known for their great talented
Artists, & the Fantastic Sunrises & Sunsets.
The Oldest Seaport in New England, with a Great variety of things to
do on your Vacation.
The location allowed you to walk to a large variety of sites 10-15
minutes average & still be in an Ideal & Quiet Area.
