Gloucester House Rental Photos and Description

5 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 10

Our family house is located a 10 second walk from Good Harbor Beach. Enjoy an early morning stroll followed by a cup of coffee sitting on the porch, soaking in the ocean breeze, watching the waves crash on bass rocks and listening to the sound of the ocean. If you feel like a run, you can jog down the beach and cross over onto Atlantic Avenue with sprawling views of the ocean as you run. For a more sedate morning, head out on a whale watch or take a short drive to the Peabody Essex Museum. Check out Salt Island at low tide, accessible by a sand bar when the tide goes out.

Just minutes away is Rockport, another seaside town where you can stroll through local artists galleries, have lunch, or rent a kayak and paddle out to Twin Lights. Drive or ride your bike to Rockport as it's only a few miles away. Group kayak tours are also available from local kayak touring companies. After a busy day of touring, snorkeling, or biking, cookout on the front lawn, or retire to the porch.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We came from PA, VA and MO to join family for Christmas week. What we found was a wonderfully loved home where we could enjoy a beautiful view, great beach strolls and our family all coming together for a wonderful time. Everything we could have needed or wanted was here! The weather was exciting. Everything from a Nor'Easter to snow!!! Thank you for sharing this lovely house with us as it was all wonderful.

Comfort near Good Harbor Beach

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a wonderful Columbus Day weekend at this great beach home near Good Harbor Beach. The fog was heavy when we arrived and we could only hear the surf. What a treat when we were sitting on the wonderful enclosed porch when the fog lifted and we realized what a beautiful view we had!! Coffee and tea on the porch each morning, walking on the beach and along Atlantic Ave each afternoon, and then returning to that wonderful porch for cocktails before dinner was pretty much the pattern of our days. Life does not get better than that!. The beach house has all kinds of room and everything you need is right there. The beds were all very comfortable, the kitchen well equipped, and everything was neat and clean when we arrived. This is obviously a place that has been loved by its family and we are grateful that they shared it with us.

Great Beach Vacation House!

  • 5 of 5

We were in Gloucester for the weekend to celebrate the wedding of a dear friend from high school and decided instead of getting hotel rooms that we would look into a house. We had four couples and this house exceeded all our expectations in terms of the space, style and location (great beach views, 2 minute walk to the water, and a 5-10 minute drive to town).

There were more than enough beds for our group of 8 and the living area was set up perfectly for lounging, playing board games and catching up with old friends.

My only regret is that we didn't have more time spend here! Thank you so much :)

Located just a 10 second walk from Good Harbor Beach. Enjoy coffee on the porch gazing at the ocean, early morning walks on the beach then head out for lunch in Rockport, shopping in galleries or rent sea kayaks and tour Cape Ann for the day by sea. Take in a whale watch and then head to downtown Gloucester for lunch by the water.
