Overview

Merrimack Valley & Essex County Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4

This delightfully summer vacation rental cottage, overlooking broad stretches of the Atlantic and Rockport's Hoop Pole Cove, is a perfect retreat for anyone looking to experience the best of what New England has to offer. Complete with two air conditioned bedrooms, an expansive yard, and a wraparound porch, one can enjoy Cape Ann's natural beauty in any weather comfortably.

After walking up a few outside steps, the house is contained on one level. For anyone passionate about the culinary arts, the newly renovated kitchen, complete with all appliances (including a washer and dryer) and granite counters this is the perfect setting for experimenting with some of the freshest seafood in the world. The rest of the cottage has also recently undergone a complete renovation, but still retains its antique charm.

From stylish modern upgrades, such as a custom tile bath with soaking tub and a separate shower, to vintage stylistic elements including a stone fireplace made from local popples (stones that the ocean has rolled to an egg shape) and hardwood throughout, North Seas Cottage masterfully marries the best of the old and new. Two nicely sized bedrooms with free standing A/C units, one containing two brand new twin mattresses and the other housing a regal queen bed complete the floor plan.

Located in a serene neighborhood, the cottage is perfect for those lazy summer mornings, sleeping in before venturing out on a quiet walk to drink in your lovely seaside surroundings, or to the beaches, local shops, and exquisite restaurants for which Cape Ann is famous. The lane alongside North Seas can accommodate parking for two to three vehicles. Note that cell phone reception may or may not reliably work for some service providers, so the cottage has a landline to ensure that guests can always keep in contact with any and everybody. From the parking area, cross the lawn to the side steps (about 6) to enter the cottage.

Reviewer Comments:

We were familiar with the cottage from 20 years ago when our kids were young and saw it for rent, so we couldn't pass it up. We had a long weekend there, full of memories and great weather.

Reviewer Comments:

My wife and two young girls (ages 6 and 4) generally enjoyed our stay here. These were several minor annoyances (the TV did not work and the lights did not work in one of the bedrooms when we arrived and there were no hooks for towels and limited space to put things down in the bathroom) but we were able to find the circuit breakers the next morning for the bedroom lights and the rental agent was very helpful in having the TV fixed promptly). One suggestion is to have a brief explanation of the operation of the TV and other equipment in the house for convenience and well as some information on where one could go for groceries. We did not spend much time in the place itself (breakfast two of four mornings and no lunches or dinners), but found the area a pleasant one when we were there. The accompanying picture accurately captures the most attractive view from the place. The area was also quiet and relaxing and we found the beds very comfortable.

Reviewer Comments:

My family and I (my husband, our 10 and 11 year old boys and our dog, Bleu) stayed at the North Seas Cottage for 9 days. From the first moment we saw the view we knew we loved it. Every room was homey and comfy and full of wonderful little finds to enjoy. I loved using any manner of dishes (I haven't taken my own relish dish out in years...) to serve dinner - they really have everything. We had two minor issues, a leak from an a/c unit and a broken shower curtain, but both were resolved quickly with the management team. We would definitely consider coming back next year!

Reviewer Comments:

When I inquired about this property, I explained that two of our party used walkers and canes. I was told that there were 3-4 steps up to the porch and 2 more into the house. There are 7 large steps to the porch and proved to be too much for two of us. We both suffered breathing difficulties and problems climbing. Perhaps you should retain someone who is physically challenged to rate your properties. The beds were too high for short women. On the plus side, the view was beautiful.

Reviewer Comments:

The location overlooking the cove and promontory of Halibut Point is exceptional. Beautiful oceans breezes and refreshing air off the water. The home is well furnished and comfortable. Ideal for a couple, a couple with small kids (2 twin beds), or 2-3 adults.
