Overview

About the property

5 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 9

Located above the western shore of Gloucester’s historic harbor and lovingly renovated in 2011, this beautiful and spacious five bedroom Victorian vacation rental home has been in the same family since the 1880's.

This gracious home gives hints to a bygone era while offering modern amenities. A formal parlor, separate living room, an elegant dining room, and five bedrooms provide guests with plenty of space to either gather together or find a quiet corner as they choose.

Walk down to Stage Fort Park with its playground, two beaches – Cressy’s Beach (named for the original owners of this house) and Half Moon Beach, a splendid sandy beach set among rocky outcrops with sun and shade. The park also features tennis courts, concerts, fireworks, and a seasonal neighborhood restaurant & ice cream store. Across the street and a short walk up one of the oldest roads in New England is the entrance to Gloucester's 500-acre nature preserve, Ravenswood Park. Stroll along Stacy Boulevard past the iconic Man at the Wheel sculpture into Gloucester, where shops, restaurants, whale watch excursions and schooner cruises await you. Wingaersheek Beach and Good Harbor Beach are just a 10-minute drive away; rinse off the sand in the hot/cold outdoor shower at the house after your day in the sea and sun.

3451 Sq. Ft. Small dogs (under 25 lbs.) allowed with Pet Fee. No smoking.

Reviewer Comments:

Our family stayed at Beachmont for our son's wedding. It was a wonderful home for our entire family. It is spacious and very comfortable. My favorite room was the kitchen. We spent many hours around the kitchen had all the conveniences of home. My only negative was the condition of the grounds. The outside of the home needed more care. There were large weeds growing, cracked sidewalks and the outside needed considerable attention. We loved the inside and it provided a wonderful space for our family to gather. Thanks for sharing your home with our family.

My family and I had a wonderful experience overall. The house was large and rambling providing great space for all. The kitchen was well equipped and towels were plentiful. One queen mattress could use a replacement though because it was pretty uncomfortable.

House was nicely appointed and in a great location. The yard needs work. Lots of weeds and generally looks unkept.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. As this summer has been particularly hot and dry, the grounds were starting to reflect that. We are taking steps to make sure that the condition of the garden is improved. Thank you.

Our family rented this very comfortable home for two weeks. Everyone loved it. It is near a park with a playground and small beach, perfect for the little ones. The house was very clean and well equipped. We would not hesitate to rent here again.
