Great Beach/Good Value

  • 3 of 5

When we walked into the cottage my 9-year-old grandson immediately said that he "liked this place." (He travels with us each summer and has stayed at numerous vacation homes in his short life-time. We statyed at 3 places this summer alone. Some vacation homes that we've rented are not kid-proofed, which puts a certain pressure on everyone involved.) All 3 young grandchildren were very comfortable in the house and yard, which is fenced. That makes our lives easier when the kids are happy. The beds were very comfortable and linens were provided (yea!). The outdoor shower was great and used often. The walk to the beach was easily doable for all but the 3-year-old. He made the walk, but was often dropped off or picked up to accommodate nap times. We all absolutely loved Good Harbor Beach. Friends and relatives had short stays in nearby motels, which was very convenient. This house was a good value, providing us with affordable access to a world-class beach.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family (two grandparents, two parents, and one 16 month old grandchild) had a wonderful time in this house over a five-day stay in June. The house is very close to a grocery store and a Dunkin Donuts, easy walking distance, which is great; and, it is a little longer, but still comfortable, walk to Good Harbor Beach ... Cape Ann's gem! We will definitely stay here every time we visit Gloucester.

Amazing Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here Memorial Day Weekend May 2016 for a girls getaway. It was the most perfect stay! All the amenities we needed were at our fingertips. It was a short drive to the shops and restaurants. During the day we used the private fenced in yard to lay out. It was wonderful! I would highly recommend the Sand Piper Cottage to anyone looking for a relaxing and pleasant stay in Gloucester.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

This was a lovely property, set up creatively inside to house plenty of guests. An easy walk to the beautiful Good Harbor beach, and situated very close to a supermarket.

Our hosts were very available and responded promptly to questions we had in a very courteous way.

I would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Warm, welcoming and very homey!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Sandpiper cottage helped us make memories that will last a lifetime. From all over the world we gathered for Christmas - coming back to our home town. The Sandpiper cottage became our temporary home for 3 nights and 4 days and we simply couldn't have asked for a more wonderfully homey and welcoming place. It is a home and feels that way the second you come in: cozy, all the kitchen amenities to put on a holiday meal for 12, large open concept for chatter, family sarcasm and love.

I recommend the Sandpiper, and the wonderfully responsive Hutchinson owners, to any holiday or family gathering. Great memories will be made!! :-)
