Perfect summer house for a large group!

  • 5 of 5

This was perfect for a large group of friends coming together for a reunion at a local wedding. The location is perfect - walking distance to the beach! Plenty of beds, HUGE yard and plenty of kitchen space.

The hosts were very accommodating, attentive and helpful, but did not make us feel like we were intruding - they gave us our space to enjoy the house and our time there!

Thank you again for help making this a special weekend!

Our Dad and Sibs Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We are now part of the Fortunate Group who have had the Enjoyable experience of staying at this Comfortable Home! Thank You!

We so enjoyed this Home for our Dad ( 92 years young! ) and Siblings Weekend together!

From our initial contact with the Owners and their prompt responses, we were pleased. I had different questions and they were always answered quickly and completely.

We found the Home to be Clean and all in working order.

However, the Wonderful Deck, Backyard and the close proximity to Good Harbor Beach are terrific!

We were spoiled by the weather becoming "July in September" Gorgeous so the Beach was the Place to be!

However, we also enjoyed the Patriots' Fantastic Win on the TV in the most comfortable Living Room!

Though this Home is two stories,( with bedrooms, bath, kitchen & living room on each floor) we really lived in the second floor with its three bedrooms, full bath and kitchen and living room and the Great Deck!!

At another time, this Home would work perfectly for our two daughters and their young children to join us and stay on the first floor!

This lovely Home invites you to savor your time by the sea and enjoy family and friends in this most comfortable environment! Thank You!

About Lisa and Patrick Halloran

I grew up in Montreal, Canada and met my husband PJ while he visited Montreal. PJ grew up in Gloucester and has an intimate knowledge of the area having worked on local whale watches and Inns before going to college and accepting a commission in the U.S. Army. We now live north of Boston where he serves as a Firefighter and I as a Manager.

Lisa and Patrick Halloran purchased this house in 2013

Why Lisa and Patrick Halloran chose Gloucester

My family vacationed in the area for many years renting homes over the summer. When this property became available we immediately jumped on the chance to own a property across the street from our favorite beach.

What makes this house unique

The ability to walk to Good Harbor and not worry about the parking or congestion is worth it in itself. The size of the house and outside entertaining area are sure to make everyone happy.

There are several whale watches operating out of downtown Gloucester as well as a harbor cruise and fishing charters.
