Guestbook comments from the owner

We were so glad we chose this Gloucester vacation rental to spend our final week of summer by the beach and the weather and ocean breezes were amazing! It was perfect for our medium sized family and the kids loved the huge upstairs room and own bath. The dining room and kitchen were very nice and we loved the breakfast bar as well. there was a nice patio set and gas BBQ of which we enjoyed nightly and the closed in back yard was safe for the kids to play in w/the dog. The owner was nice enough to spend some time with us giving ideas of things to do and restaurants to eat. I'd highly recommend this house if you love the beaches!

Clean, comfortable family vacation home close to Good Harbor Beach

  • 4 of 5

We were 4 adults and 2 young children who live about an hour from Gloucester. The house worked very well for us. It was clean and spacious. You can see the ocean from the upstairs bedroom. There is a small back yard with an outdoor shower, table for 6, lawn chairs and an outdoor grill. We often left the back door open and the children moved freely between outside and in. The outdoor shower was a tremendous feature after trips to the beach. It was great to get the sand off everyone. We went to the beach everyday - sometimes twice a day. The beach is a ten minute walk. We carried a lot of gear to the beach so we would usually take the car to drop people and gear off. Also, there were a number of beach toys and boogie boards in the backyard that we used. There is plenty of room to park cars at the house.

The kitchen and kitchen tools were adequate. We mostly cooked and ate at home. There are 2 large supermarkets within a mile of the house, so keeping the house provisioned was simple. The owner recommended a couple of local restaurants, "Causeway" and the "Lobster Pool" which we enjoyed.

I would recommend this house to families with children who like the beach. The Cape Ann area is beautiful and there is a lot to explore. However, we spent most of our time enjoying Good Harbor Beach.

Perfect Vacation Home

  • 4 of 5

As we entered the house, we were immediately welcomed with a vase of lovely, fresh flowers. The open floor plan provided a perfect setting for my entire family to always be engaged with everyone. My adult children and their families had lots of fun as the house provided not only all of the essentials inside but had a great yard space complete with gas grill, umbrella, table and chairs and a much used outdoor shower when returning from the beach. The location of the house was perfectly situated between Long Beach and Good Harbor Beach and within easy walking distance of the house. The pictures of the house (or even if you view the house from the outside) do not do justice to the actual space inside the house. It was very spacious and well laid out. The upstairs bedroom with 5 beds and a bath worked perfectly for one of my children's family. The two bedrooms on the first floor were also very spacious, lots of closets.

We also found having such great parking available to us was a real plus. There are lots of great spots to visit in the area: Rocky Neck (artist colony) and it also has some great restaurants: The Rudder and the Studio; Rockport with lots of local shops on Bear Skin Neck, Stage Fort Park, Eastern Point for some great fishing, and a visit to the new hotel, Beauport! Our favorite restaurant is Duckworth -

but you must make a reservation long in advance of your visit. We hope to come back to this Perfect Vacation Home again next year.

The cottage is large and airy, filled with sunshine. It is a 10 minute walk to one of the finest beaches in New England. Great location! John O'Hara, the landlord, is very helpful and attentive.

Great location, lots of room

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a week with extended family. It really worked well for all our needs, and our visitors. Lots of room and sleeping space. A great, open layout and we could gather lots of people around the dinner table -- both inside and out. Had all the amenities -- great TV, wifi worked fine, etc. The location was excellent; an easy walk to Long Beach or Good Harbor. And I was amazed how quiet the neighborhood was at night. Wonderful all around!
