Guestbook comments from the owner

For our family "Glosta" is everything undeniable about MA all rolled up into one beautiful small city. Linda - thanks for creating a magical place for us to stay - it's perfect.

Highlights include:

• Smokin' Jim's baby back ribs (across the street)

• the very tasty linguine w/white clam sauce at Espresso's (super closeby)

• Rockport's kitchen shop "Lula's" is one of a kind

• Rocky Neck was our favorite neighborhood. The old paint factory is a piece of history to behold as is the rest of the community. Everything about Rocky Neck is special.

• Capt. Joe & Son's lobsters are delicious and provided us with several wonderful home-cooked evenings.

Thank you again, Linda.

We feel our stay at Summerwind Cottage was one of the most pleasant vacations we have ever had.everything about the cottage is well designed and set up for comfort. The cottage is very spacious and open.The sunny deck and the view are restful. Our hosts were so nice. We would and have recommended this cottage to anyone looking for a interesting east coast vacation.

SUMMERWIND - A Little piece of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

Summer Wind was exactly what Scott and I expected it to be. The pic's on the website represented the cottage to a T! It was like a little home away from home (without the day to day stresses) clean and fresh with all of the basic amenities of home. We can honestly say this was the best "vacation" we have ever had purely from a relaxation standpoint. Having Summer Wind as our home base made the vacation experience a 10+. The setting/view was beautiful and when I close my eyes I can see the harbor filled with fishing and pleasure boats - I can smell the ocean - and hear the seagulls. We were there for 8 days and never bored or wanting for something to do. From Rocky Neck Art Colony - to Rock Port - to Newbury Port - downtown Gloucester and fireworks - sailing on the Schooner - with the Captain who actually built the ship - it was all a wonderful experience - even our visit to the Crows Nest (The Perfect Storm) was an experience). Topping it off was dinner at Franklin's with our own Linda Amero performing-singing in her beautiful jazzy voice. The customer service provided by Linda at Summer Wind was excellent and NOT intrusive in any way. I would recommend visiting Gloucester and making Summer Wind your home away from home while on vacation. The experience was one we will never forget! Thank you again Linda!

A most comfortable, relaxing and memorable stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderfully relaxing week in Summerwind. The location was even more perfect than expected and the house had every household convenience. I can't think of anything that would have made our stay at your property more perfect.

Immaculate, cozy and relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

Modern kitchen with all the conveniences of home - washer/dryer, gas stove and well equipped kitchen for dining in after a busy day.

Air conditioning minimizes discomfort of high humidity typical of New England summers. Quiet setting with gracious helpful hosts.

Artistically and thoughtfully decorated by hosts with relaxation in mind. The nice deck offers a great vantage point for fireworks viewing! Gloucester has a strong fishing and seafaring history.

Linda and Hank are welcoming and down to earth.

This is a gem of a find in the heart of Gloucester. You cannot be more conveniently located to all types of activities whether it be exploring downtown or going to the beach. it is a very short distance to Good Harbor Beach and Niles Beach. Its elevated location on a hill overlooking a harbor give this house a private feel without being far away from everything. The house is nicely appointed. The open floor plan gives ample space for eating and lounging. Beautiful sunset viewing on the large deck. We had a great time. Great for teens because of location. Book it and have a great vacation :).

Everything was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week with my wife, daughter and son in law and found the cottage to be perfect in every way. Linda and Hank were great hosts-there when you needed the and sensitive to your privacy as well. Great floor plan, comfortable, and the decorating is beautiful-check out the photos on line. Very Close to Rocky Neck, Good Harbor Beach, and downtown Gloucester. Short drive to Rockport (Bearskin Neck), Crane Beach, Ipswich, Essex, and Salem. Take the Harbor Tour of your choice-we went completely around Cape Ann! Loved the view from the deck!

Car: recommended

Summerwind cottage is centrally located in desirable East Gloucester - 5 Minutes from downtown by car, Good Harbor Beach, Niles Beach, Rocky Neck Art Colony, restaurants, shops, supermarket, theater, cinema, nightlife and train to Boston. Right in the middle of it all but on a peaceful private lane overlooking Gloucester's scenic harbor.

Rockport's famous shops are a 10 min. drive away.
