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 brand new gas grill, comfy teak cushioned deck chairs with side table, 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!

Our Little Slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

This is our third trip and we will be back again! Paula and Deb are excellent hostesses! If you need them, they are there with information and help.

The apartment is clean, neat, and most of all peaceful! Gorgeous views of the Annisquam during the day and incredible sunsets from everywhere in the apartment and the deck! The apartment is exactly as advertised! We love to lie in bed and look out the sliding glass doors to the river, stars, and sunsets...heaven! Yet, in a quick 5 minutes drive you can be at center of Gloucester with terrific restaurants, beaches, whale-watching, etc.

Beautiful views, clean and very accommodating

  • 5 of 5

The experience was perfect, easy to drive everywhere, close to all activities. Clean and beautiful. If you happen to run into the owners Debbie and Paula they are charming. Gave us directions and insight to the happening places!!

The tides coming in and out from The view that we had was spectacular that alone was worth this trip to Gloucester. They left a pair of binoculars in the house and that was a lot of fun to watch the birds, the boats, the people and clam digging. You will not regret a stay at the Sleepyhollow!!! Thanks again Debbie and Paula for making our trip special and more than that comfortable!!

It's a Winner!!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from 3 days at Sleepy Hollow. Wonderful experience. Our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer!! Loved the location, overlooking the Annisquam River. Ate breakfast on the deck and thoroughly enjoyed watching the boats, men digging for clams, lots of activity on the water. Favorite beach was Good Harbor. Gorgeous!!

Paula and Deb were the ideal hosts, non obtrusive but helpful and accommodating in so many ways. You can't go wrong if you are looking for a place to vacation in Cape Ann. Hope to go back again which is unusual for me since I'm always looking for a different adventure. Thank you again Paula and Deb for offering your place for rent.

Quiet!

  • 4 of 5

Deb and Paula were excellent hosts! The place was clean and quiet and offered a very comfortable stay. The weather did not cooperate so unfortunately we could not enjoy that excellent view! Would definitely return :)

A beautiful spot with warm, generous, fun hosts: The perfect get-away

  • 5 of 5

I just enjoyed the most glorious week-long vacation from the noise and chaos of Cambridge. Deb and Paula are perfect hostesses - they are lots of fun, always ready with answers to your question, and just all-round perfect people to stay with. The apartment enjoys fabulous views of the Annisquam, it is super-comfortable and equipped with anything you could possibly want, and it is so quiet all you can hear is the birds singing. And there is a ton of stuff to do on Cape Ann -- in one week I felt I could only begin to explore the wonderful restaurants, sites, and drives around Cape Ann. If you are looking for a fabulous beach, look no further than Wingaersheek, a 10-15 min drive away, with free parking if you get there after 5 (and often earlier). I will be back for sure.
