About Linda Amero, Owner

We just love meeting all the wonderful folks who come from far and near to enjoy our beautiful surroundings. Hank and I grew up on Cape Ann and have lived in Gloucester for 30+ years... we wouldn't have it any other way! (Linda is a jazz vocalist/artist, and Hank is a woodworker/avid boater.)

Linda Amero, Owner purchased this house in 2011

Why Linda Amero, Owner chose Merrimack Valley & Essex County

Summerwind Cottage offers the best location ever - situated between Good Harbor & Niles beaches, 5 car to downtown shopping/restaurants, and 5 min. to Rocky Neck Art Colony galleries with it's fabulous, funky restaurants on the harbor. Quiet location yet right in the middle of the action.

What makes this house unique

Lovely large deck with scenic harbor view.

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.

Restfull Summerwind Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a restful and relaxing stay at the Summerwind Cottage. Linda was so kind and answered all our questions. The cottage was clean and fit our family of four to a T. We sat on the patio each morning and watched the fishing boats leave for the day. The sunset were magical for our family to experience, the colors made us long for more. The village was quaint and everyone was so friendly. My wife and I went for a walk each morning all over the village. Good Harbor beach was a family favorite. Would highly recommend the Summerwind Cottage for your family. We will be back!

Great Location and very clean and neat

  • 5 of 5

We certainly enjoyed our July vacation at Summerwind Cottage. We loved the charming decor and and found the cottage to be fully equipped

with all the amenities that we needed. The cottage was very clean and

the beds were very comfy. We liked the location as we were easily able

to get to Rockportand downtown Gloucester. Hank and Linda were the

best hosts imaginable, very kind and friendly and we loved having

them as neighbors. We would certainly recommend the cottage to friends and family. The Vaughans from Naples, Florida

What a great place!

  • 5 of 5

I consider myself a bit of a snob when it comes to renting a vacation home. My check list is pretty demanding. This place exceeded all my expectations. The quality of the furnishings was 5 star. A beautifully restored charming cottage with amazing harbor views. Very convenient to all the activities of the area, yet very cozy and quiet. I absolutely loved it. Linda and Hank are the prefect hosts. And to add to the fun, Linda sings with a great little jazz group in one of Gloucesters best restaurants. A blast on a Friday night. I highly recommend this place. You won't be disappointed.

Summerwind Cottage

  • 5 of 5

From the minute we arrived, we knew we were going to like it here. Cottage was spacious, clean and comfortable. Kitchen was well equipped and open. The large deck was a plus for late afternoon wine or morning coffee. Linda made us feel very welcome. We had the opportunity to hear her sing on Friday evening which was a lot of fun. Good location for seeing both sides of town. We had a wonderful time in Gloucester at the Summerwind.
