About Sam and Jen
We (Jennifer and Sam and our two small kids) live in Brookline, Massachusetts and feel very blessed to have our amazing retreat less than an hour away in Gloucester. We want to share our special place for others to enjoy!
Why Sam and Jen chose Gloucester
A private 2 acre retreat with relaxing and stunning panoramic views in all seasons. Everyone in your group, in every age level, will love being only minutes away from some of the best beaches, activities, history, and food in New England! And, all of this is only 45 minutes from Boston without “Cape traffic” -- that’s why we fell in love with this home and with Gloucester.

Rust Island Retreat
We had an incredibly relaxing stay. The home was spacious and soothing. Watching the sunsets from living room & staying warm by the fireplace.
Whether hiking in Ravenswood, looking for shells at Wingaersheek beach, or shopping at Rockport—you’re never more than a 10 minute drive from this beautiful location.
Sam & Jen are great hosts. From the decor to the well-labeled fixtures, you can tell they’ve put a lot of thought in making a great experience for us.
Thanks, Matthew! We loved having your family and appreciate all of your kind words and for being such great guests. The house looks forward to your return next year!
Spacious and delightful
We loved our stay at Sam & Jen’s. By far the most straightforward, well-organized rental process I’ve had. The house is spacious and beautifully decorated with modern amenities, eye-catching original art, and rustic touches. Gloucester and nearby Rockport are a few of my favorite New England towns. You will love dealing with Sam and Jen and staying in their awesome vacation home.
Thanks, Kim! We loved having your family and appreciate your kind praises :) We look forward to your return next year!
Gorgeous Home in an Excellent Location
We were only a 10 minute drive from Wingaersheek beach, within walking distance of an excellent restaurant, and a short hop from the greater Gloucester/Rockport area. The home is beautiful with many amenities and well equipped for large families or groups. This property will be first on our list the next time we are looking for a rental in this area. Also, I cannot say enough positive things about the owners. Stellar response time to inquiries and very helpful with providing information about the area and property. They were even able to help me troubleshoot early parking on the property so I would not have to pay for beach parking for two cars on our first day into town (before our group's check-in). I cannot say enough positive things about Sam and Jen!
Thanks for being wonderful guests! We look forward to your return!
A Beautiful Spacious Hone
We truly love the house! It’s close to everything! But you can also hear the highway. Other than that, the views are spectacular and the house is so spacious and comfortable! We played board games to relax after the beach! Lobster land is walking distance from the house!! I would love to have more pots & pan coz I love to cook. But the beach umbrellas and chairs in the garage was a bonus to have! Sam & Jen are so wonderful & easy to talk to! Overall, we recommend this space and love to return!
Gemma & Family
Thanks Gemma. It was a pleasure to host your family to celebrate your mother’s 90th! You were wonderful guests, and we are glad you enjoyed the touches that make this home a haven for our own family, including the games and the beach gear. No other guests have mentioned noticing the sounds of the highway, perhaps given that the property is two acres, but I guess that is the tradeoff for having a retreat that is secluded but also accessible. Thanks also for the heads up on the cookware. We enjoy preparing dinners for 10-12 and have not found anything to be lacking, but if you let us know what in particular would be helpful, we will have it in place for your return visit next summer! Thanks again for the stay and we look forward to hosting you again next summer.
We loved our stay! Perfect location and home for family and extended family to stay for our daughter’s wedding. Spacious rooms to gather for meals and to chat. Absolutely beautiful area!
Thanks Joy. It was a pleasure to host you and your family as you gathered to celebrate such an important event! You were wonderful guests, and we are glad you enjoyed our home and beautiful Cape Ann. Thanks again for the stay and we would be delighted to host you again soon.
Stunning home in synchronicity with nature
Our extended family just spent the winter holidays in Sam and Jen's gorgeous home. From our first booking through checkout, communications were easy and Sam and Jen were thoughtful hosts, even providing a lovely gift to remind us of our happy stay in Gloucester.
The house was spotless and recently renovated, providing every modern convenience. Gorgeous artwork adorns the walls, yet it's a house that easily accommodates children with it's wide open spaces.
The four bedrooms/three bathrooms are well laid out for group of friends/family. The kitchen is well stocked with all necessities - we cooked many meals for our family gatherings. But there are also great restaurants nearby, to which we had easy access from this perfectly situated home. We took long walks in Ravenswood Park, Halibut Point (in Rockport), and by the beach in Manchester. We bowled at the alley nearby, and spent a day at the Peabody-Essex museum in Salem. Most of all, we loved being together in the house, enjoying the views of changing tides and gorgeous sunsets.
We rent very frequently in this area and around the country. and this home easily jumps to the very top of our list.
We can't wait to return!
