Overview

Merrimack Valley & Essex County House Rental Photos and Description

5+ bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, easily sleeps 14+, Plenty of more room available

This is the vacation house you have been looking for! Perfectly located only a few steps from the world famous Wingaersheek Beach, as well as, your own private access to Coffins beach. The younger crowd will love the excitement of the public part of Wingaersheek beach, while the private access to Coffins Beach is unexcelled for that quiet relaxing time. Why have to make a choice when you can have them both? All within a few minutes walk (300 yards) to the white sands of the public side of Wingaersheek beach or less than 2/10 of a mile to the private neighborhood section of the beach called Coffins beach. This immaculate and graciously appointed home is the perfect destination for discerning beach lovers who want only the best in accommodation, sea & surf!

Housing accommodations are a perfect set-up for the extended family or share with the best friends. This location contains 4000 sq/ft. of housing for your enjoyment. This is one of the biggest houses available in the area. Once you enter the driveway and proceed up to the house you will immediately feel like you are on vacation and ready to enjoy your stay. There are numerous outdoor custom built-in mahogany sitting benches and patios to enjoy the beautiful weather and enjoy the wonderful landscape from the deck swing. As you walk-in the first floor entrance into the spacious custom tiled foyer entrance, you will immediately feel the beach house charm! The rest of the first floor contains an expansive in-law/au-pair suite, which is on your left down a few steps into a very large queen bedroom with a sitting area with TV and cathedral ceilings. You will also find the separate laundry room off the entrance foyer. To your right you will find two more large bedrooms and two custom full-size bathrooms as well. Don’t forget the additional Wifi equipped office space which can be used as a bedroom if needed. The rest of the first floor living room contains a large TV, and a spacious and comfy living room set, and don’t forget you can always challenged each other at the 3-in-1 game table (your choice of pool, ping pong and air hockey) Once you climb the stairs to the second floor you will find the gourmet kitchen featuring a world-class WOLF commercial gas stove. The granite counters, custom cabinets, and oversized chef's gas stove (complete with pot-filling faucet), pantry and stainless appliances completes this home so that it is the perfect place to be the ultimate beach home away from home. Produce your family’s favorite recipes or try some of the great local dining options, its all up to you. Beyond the 8 chair kitchen, you can relax at the kitchen nook by the fireplace, or continue to the formal dining area. The open concept dining room with seating for up to 10 is surrounded on two sides by custom built-in shelving, this in turn leads into the gorgeous Living room where you can view the surroundings from the stunning Palladian windows, surrounding you on all sides. This area doubles as another gathering place to relax with a plush leather sitting area open to the kitchen making it a great space for entertaining as everyone can be together (but still out of the cooks way) in comfort! The king sized master bedroom with cathedral ceilings is located on this floor as well. It contains your own custom full-sized bathroom and another sofa set with a hidden TV, and of course your own large private mahogany deck. The King size bed actually looks small in this space! The house is air conditioned if you prefer, or you can enjoy the sea-breeze air and open the three sets of oversized Anderson sliders. (Five sets if you combine both floors!) Which open onto to the expansive upper mahogany decks, where you can relax on the outside deck furniture and sunbath privately instead of the beach if you prefer? The house has wifi, of course, but bring your cell phone as there is no landline at the house. Plenty of parking in the driveway and lovely landscaping outside! Additionally, Gloucester is becoming a more and more artwork-culturally known area; take a ride to the local artwork shops found around Rocky Neck. Find your next treasure to remind you of your stay. There is everything you would expect for a great ocean beach stay, located only 10-15 minutes drive to Gloucester harbor. Once you experience this vacation house and locale, you will want to return for years to come. Start a new tradition and make a reservation today!

...... Exciting news, we are adding a Classic restored 1965 Pontiac GTO or a 1986 Trans Am for rental during visiting guest stays. Enjoy the area even more in a Classic GTO or Trans Am. Please ask about rates and pictures if interested.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for the weekend to celebrate my mom's 60th birthday. There were 9 adults and 2 kids. Plenty if room for everyone. The owners have thought of everything even coolers for a day at the beach. It was wonderful not having to think of the extras like spices, games for kids or even all kinds of kitchen items you don't know that you may want or need till you are cooking.

The house is clean, spacious and plenty of parking with the two driveways and garage.

I would highly recommend this house to anyone as a family or a group of large size. You have so many options with this house and call really have such an enjoyable getaway.

Beautiful home at Wingaersheek

  • 5 of 5

The property is clean and beautifully decorated. The kitchen is very well stocked with serving dishes as well as plates and glasses. It is in a great location between the two beaches. These beaches are clean and great for adults and kids. The owner was easy to work with. We went whale watching and enjoyed the restaurants in Gloucester and Rockport. The grocery is close by and a great farmers market. The house was easy to find and very comfortable. There are areas to go so you don't feel on top of each other. The yard and outdoor areas are very nice. We will stay again and recommend it to others.

Great place to stay for our group of 15

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time celebrating our daughter's graduation from Gordon College with our extended family in this lovely home. We took advantage of the spacious game room, the large dining room as well as the outside deck area for meals, and being able to gather with everyone together in the great room. The master bedroom was lovely with the two floor-length mirrors and attached bathroom. This was especially helpful as our four girls were able to get ready in there so the rest of our guests could use the other two bathrooms in the house. We would definitely love to return again!

Wedding Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic experience renting this house for a long weekend to host and house guests from out of town for our wedding. The home owner made us feel entirely welcome and comfortable. The property was well-maintained inside and out, and our guests were thrilled to be so close to such a gorgeous beach. The house comfortably sleeps 15 or more, and we had ample space in the living areas for everyone to enjoy each others company. The large and modern kitchen opens up to the upstairs deck, allowing for even more guests to relax comfortably. I would recommend this property to a friend without any reservations. It had everything we were looking for - location, space, and the comforts of home.

A great spot for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This house was almost perfect for our extended family holiday. We had 4 young kids and 6 adults in the house, and everyone loved it. The indoor space is enormous - plenty of room for quiet escapes or big group activities. The private beach is WONDERFUL for small kids, especially at low tide. My 3 and 5 yr old boys spent hours and hours exploring tide pools and swimming. The house is very easy to access, right on the corner of the main road, but still quiet and private. And the owner was great to deal with - very friendly and always very quick to reply to emails! The only slight drawback was the short (~3 blocks), but hilly, walk to the private beach. It was absolutely fine for most of us, but for young kids and elderly parents, it was a bit far.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the positive review and we are glad you have reserved for next year already! You are always welcome at our home. As you know, the public beach (which has bathrooms and a food stand, is great for the elderly and the really young) is even closer than the private beach, which is the beauty of our location! Why choose one beach when you can have two!
