About the property

1 Bedroom With Spectacular Water Views

'Cape Ann'- the Massachusetts Cape named after a Queen-not an ugly fish!

If you have never been to Cape Ann before-- you don't know what you are missing! If you have been here you most likely can't wait to return. This area is magical! It's a jewel : white sandy beaches as well as areas of rocky coastline. Theater, great restaurants, whale watching, deep sea fishing, art galleries, museums, kayaking, biking, hiking and so much more.

An hour or less to Salem Ma., Kittery Maine factory outlet stores, fall foliage, Logan Airport, and antiquing in Essex, Ipswich or Rowley to name a few! If you want to explore-- there's plenty of it to do! If being 'still' is what you need, we are offering you a beautiful waterfront apartment for 2 that we call 'Sleepy Hollow'. Furnished with a queen sized bed and queen sized pull out couch, we are confident you will be comfortable. New linens, rugs, bed pillows and drapes as well. You will absolutely love staying here over-looking the Annisquam River and the back side of Wingaersheek Beach. We provide towels, umbrella, and chairs for your use at the beach.

Your private deck offers a gas grill, comfy wicker love seat with cushions, high top table and chairs,flowers, umbrella and the most fabulous view of sunsets you can imagine.

Inside we have flat screen HDTV, DVD, JVC CD player with radio, internet access and washer drier on site. Games, books and Cape Ann Info for your enjoyment.

Our full kitchen has all you could need including everything to cook a lobster dinner!

At low tide you can walk down onto the hard packed sand through a right of way and spend hours swimming, walking, reading, boat-watching and more. At high tide you can launch your kayak off of another right of way that are both completely visible from your deck. The apartment is on the second floor of our home where we reside year-round. We are 2 adult females, one of us has lived in Gloucester since birth and we have owned and operated a number of local businesses over the years. We are very familiar with the hospitality industry and are confident we can help make your stay memorable. This is our fourth year renting for vacationers as we have previously had full time tenants. Winter rentals are also available. We are especially eager to give you our best. We look forward to your call. Paula Parsons and Debra Callahan

About Deb Callahan or Paula Parsons

This house was acquired by my father through marriage in 1965. He adored this location!! We acquired it in 1999 and built the upstairs apartment for him. After his passing we decided to redo the entire space again for the purpose we now offer. We absolutely love it as much as he did and never take it for granted!

Relaxing weekend with a view

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I needed to escape the city for the weekend and decided to go on a mini road trip. Deb was so responsive and helpful throughout the whole process we couldn't have been more pleased. Since we had arrived so late from our road trip we had a wonderful surprise waiting for us in the morning of the picturesque views of the waterfront in the most comfortable bed. The apartment was perfectly clean and organized with a nautical theme to set the scene. We had everything we needed. The location was perfect for the weekend we were looking for. We spent a wonderful day in Rockport strolling in and out of all their unique shops and in the evening enjoyed a night out in Salem. Thank you, Paula and Deb for a wonderful relaxing weekend!

Perfect getaway

My friend and I needed a time away to catch our breath and we hit the jackpot. This apartment was spotless, so pretty, and had everything we needed....and more. The location is perfect. We spent a wonderful day in Rockport browsing all their unique shops. We are looking forward to a return trip. Owners were so friendly and accomodating. You should visit!

Great spot, great view, greats hosts.

  • 5 of 5

Loved the view from our cozy perch: the action from the parade of boats

on the Annisquam, the tidal ebb and flow, the shore birds eager for fresh catch. Perfect spot and perfect hosts. Loved our stay here.

Peaceful oasis with lovely sunsets!

  • 5 of 5

The best part of our stay was our wonderful, gracious hostesses, Paula and Deb. Between them, they know everything worth knowing about Cape Ann and are very willing to share their expertise. The apartment is a very comfortable space with room to do everything you need on vacation. The kitchen is well equipped to cook in and make a decent meal, allowing us to relax at dinner time and enjoy the sunsets. We hope to return before too long. Thank you, Paula and Deb for a wonderful week.

Whale watching while you are in Gloucester is always a must! There a several different places to choose from. There is nothing more beautiful than seeing a whale up close. Deep sea fishing is always fun...Home of 'Wicked Tuna'.
