Gloucester House Rental Photos and Description

Walk just a few steps to the spectacular white sandy beach called 'Long Beach', where you will immediately be drawn in to the unprecidented views of 'Twin Lights' and the rocky seashore that surrounds you.

Gloucester is a place to see, feel and experience history. Its working waterfront and beauty have drawn fisherman, families, artists and visitors for hundreds of years.

Whale watching and fishing, (Haddock, cod and tuna) can be enjoyed from the Whale Watching and Deep Sea Fishing boats.

Lighthouses date from the 1780's, and the historic downtown has over 75 restaurants serving all kinds of cuisine and the 'freshest' of seafood.

Galleries, world class museums and the period architecture will enthrall you.

Meet artists in America's oldest working artist colony on nearby Rocky Neck.

Come and experience Cape Ann!

'Long Beach' is a protected stretch of fabulous ocean and white sand, perfect for sunbathing, walking, shelling and even surfing! Great waves!

From Long Beach, which is steps from the cottage, you can easily see 'Twin Lights' on Thatcher's Island as shown in photo.

*'Good Harbor Beach' (walking distance from the cottage) is a 1/2 mile long barrier beach with a rocky shore and salt marsh which is protected by sand dunes. Small, shrub covered rocky 'Salt Island' is accessible at low tide.

*These 2 beaches are nestled in secluded coves with white sand and stretch for miles.

Everything is supplied for your vacation!

1 King size bed

2 Queen size beds

2 full bathrooms with tubs

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

What a great place! This house made our vacation! Our favorite house that we have ever rented! We came with our two kids, ages 13 and 19 and allowed them both to bring friends and the house easily accommodated this arrangement! The house was so well maintained, clean and with lovely details, with a great yard. The deck with grill made a lovely area to eat dinners and there was an inside generous dining room table that sat 6 for colder, rainy evenings. And the location....to die for....one block from Long Beach and an easy 10 minute walk to Good Harbor Beach, which we enjoyed mornings, afternoons and evenings. And, there's a great ice cream shop on the way to Good Harbor. I also need to mention that the generously spaced upstairs area with a full bedroom, bathroom and living room area that has a full size pool table was excellent for my teenage daughter and her friends and of course the pool table was a huge hit with all of us! Also, the owners were so nice and responsive to our needs and questions. We would return without hesitation. Well worth the price!

Our Family Christmas

  • 5 of 5

Most people think of Beachcomber Cottage as a summer vacation spot, but it was a perfect place for our family to spend Christmas together. It was spacious enough for everyone to have privacy when they needed it, and meals all together without being crowded. The kitchen was equipped with all the utensils for our Christmas dinner, and later in the week, a fresh lobster dinner. It's welcoming and comfortable in every sense of the word - including holiday decorations to make us feel at home. The location is perfect - close to Rockport, Rocky Neck and Gloucester, each with their own charm and history. Best of all is its proximity to a beautiful beach, which we walked every day. Another feature is the large deck, which overlooks a professionally landscaped yard. We can't wait to go back!

Already looking forward to going back!

  • 5 of 5

My family just returned from a wonderful stay at the Beachcomber and are already looking forward to going back.

First of all, the house and property were beautiful. There was plenty of room for my 3 generation family to spread out and relax as well as be together. My daughter loved the beautiful back yard to play hide and seek, while my parents enjoyed the beautiful views from the spacious deck. The house is clean and well maintained.

The most important attraction is being mere steps from Long Beach, a real treat with its beautiful sand and sparkling waters. Sunset walks, collecting shells , and splashing in the beautiful water were all a wonderful way to pass the time.

The house is within minutes of great shopping to both downtown Gloucester and Rockport.

Laura was a pleasure to work with, and my family is already counting the days to our return!

The Beachcomber Experience was WONDERFUL

  • 5 of 5

This was my first family vacation (9 of us) in Cape Ann Gloucester and the Beachcomber rental property was wonderful! Having a property that supplied linens, and paper goods and was equipped with a washer and dryer was a huge plus! The beds were comfortable, lawn well kept, and the house itself very clean. The location was great being a few miles from Rockport, and few steps to the beach, and close to grocery stores. I would highly recommend this rental home!

Comfortable, well-located & versatile beach house

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at the Beachcomber Cottage for 2 weeks in August, three seasons in a row, which should tell you something. A very comfortable, well stocked house with a versatile floor plan that allows for simultaneous, separate indoor activities in the evening or when weather doesn't cooperate. Long Beach a couple of houses away, and Good Harbor Beach a 5 minute bike ride or less than 15 if you're walking. A popular ice cream place up the street, and groceries, liquor and fresh fish all within minutes. We spent most evenings grilling on the generous deck, overlooking a very large, landscaped, private yard. Plentiful parking and a garage for storing bikes. We recommend the house without reservation.

Perfect house for family fun

  • 5 of 5

Our daughter got married at Willowdale Estate. Since we were from out of town, we decided to rent a house within commuting distance to the wedding but near a beach. The Beachcomber was the perfect house for us. Beautiful Long Beach was a short stroll away and the house was stocked with everything you could possibly need including beach chairs and beach towels! Our son loved his room off the upstairs den (complete with pool table). Good Harbor Beach was only a mile away and we could walk easily to the Dairy Maid! Huge cones! Pizza was very good there too! If you simply can't get away from the office, they've got WiFi too. This came in very handy a couple of times for us. All in all, it was a very relaxing place to stay, in a beautiful setting, close to anything you might want or need, for a satisfying holiday. We enjoyed ourselves thoroughly and hope to go back someday and invite our adult children to join us for a week of coastal fun and relaxation. I highly recommend staying here whether your children are 5 or 25. And if you happen to be hosting or joining a wedding party in the area...renting a house like this is a lifesaver.
