We were two adults with grandchild (7)
Outstanding view from the front enclosed porch in sun or in rain.
Good fishing spot just below the house.
Comfortable walk to Good harbour beach in 15 minutes - stepping it out in less than 10.
The house has all amenities for a comfortable stay.
Full bath - essential for the small bogie-boarder after an hour in the water to warm up in a warm bath.
We enjoy the fresh fish when visiting Gloucester (bought at Steven Connelly's) and cook most days enjoying our meal and a good glass of wine on the enclosed porch.
Easy house to keep clean and with windows on all sides the house remains cool and comfortable.
The den ( with single bed) was our grandsons private "playroom"
The owners welcomed us and made sure our stay was perfect.
This was my 31st uninterrupted summer vacation in Gloucester and it was the best.

We needed to start our summer vacation with a few days of peace on the ocean. This was perfect! The unit is the bottom floor of the house, spacious and very clean. Charlie and Joyce were helpful, accommodating and friendly.
My son and I easily walked to the beach to play whiffle ball and my husband dropped us off with the variety of boogie boards and STUFF needed for a day at the beach. We rode bikes, played catch and games in the back yard and had a great time. My favorite part was sitting on the patio in the morning and evenings watching the waves.
Would highly recommend this to anyone!
The location was perfect, just a short walk to Good Harbor Beach. The owners, Charlie and Joyce were very accommodating, even put a single bed in the den creating an extra bedroom.
We spent most of our time on the front porch and enjoyed dinner on the outdoor patio set, also overlooking the ocean and Thatcher Island's twin Lighthouses. There is a big backyard, mainly used for parking and a good size front yard. The unit is the entire first floor of the cottage and is plenty spacious. The porch gets morning sun but is shaded for rest of the day, making it a wonderful spot to take in the views with a nice breeze. You can see the ocean from almost all the rooms, except the bedrooms, which allows you to sleep in a little more. :)
It was nice to eat-in for some meals and go downtown for others. We especially like Maria's, which is an Italian restaurant with pizza and other tasty Italian dishes. It's a place locals go, hidden away near the train station. Market Basket at the rotary has the best grocery prices. Nearby Rockport has cute shops and a nice place to poke around on those cloudy days.
We are already looking forward to renting the place again next year!!
