Gloucester house description
A newer beach home (completed July 2004) located in the private Diamond Cove area of Annisquam in Gloucester. Even though it is not directly on the water, it is the perfect location. You have the use of two (semi-private, association members only) beaches. It is only a minute walk to the Diamond Cove rocky beach, where you can swim, dive, launch your kayak or just sit and watch the beautiful sunset. It is about a five minute walk to the Annisquam Light House sandy beach.
THE HOUSE: Out the back door you will have a deck with a view of the surrounding woods. There is a patio with table, chairs and a gas grill by the side of the house. The FIRST FLOOR is an open living and dining area with a wall of southern exposure windows overlooking the woods. There is a gas fireplace and a fully equipped kitchen. A guest bath plus a bedroom with a private bath complete the first floor. The SECOND FLOOR has three bedrooms, a bath and a laundry room. The THIRD FLOOR is a large open game room. There is gas fireplace, a TV den area, pool table area, a computer area and a bathroom. Pets will be considered.
A LITTLE SOMETHING EXTRA: There is a lot to do in this area, but the best thing is you don't have to do anything! The house is completely furnished and for the convenience of our long distance renters, we operate on a use-it- up and replace-it system for all the staple items (if you use up the salt or the laundry detergent, just replace it before you leave). This will save you lots of money and time by not having to purchase every little spice or staple you may only need once. Just bring your clothes and personal items. There is an information book available in the house that lists local activities, restaurants, maps, etc. that will provide the answer most any question.

two weeks in lovely home
two weeks in lovely home
We just got back from renting this property for two week 7/23-8/6. It really was perfect for my 3 teenagers. The two girls had their own beautiful bedrooms, and my 19 yo had the whole upstairs. We joined him in the evenings for movies nights. I loved that there were plenty of beach chairs and "stuff" The place was fully stocked with everything one could need. My only 2 wishes would be that the master bedroom down stairs had a more comfortable bed. It is a full size. A queen with a better mattress would have been better. (we have a Cal king at home) Really hard for my husband and I to have a good night sleep. (this is probably the only reason why we wouldn't return) Wish #2 that the wifi reached down stairs. We had our laptop and ipads with us and we only could get on line by being upstairs. (which sucks if you want your morning coffee and e-mail while everyone else is sleeping in) Janet the caretaker was really accommodating and friendly, as well as Mary back in NM

Great location - central to lots of activities! Clean with everything you could ever need! We loved the notebook the owners provided with all kinds of very useful information - everything from location of grocery stores to area attractions! We recommend this to friends and family! We would love to return soon!

We just returned from our New Years in Gloucester and can not say enough about this home. We have rents many homes throughout the years and this is by far our favorite. It was very spacious, beautifully decorated, comfortable, and relaxing. We will definitely return.

We enjoyed a mini-family reunion at this beautiful home. The first floor bedroom was perfect for those wanting to avoid stairs. The house was amazing - bright and airy - crisp and clean with everything we needed and then some . . . truely made our family time together very special. I think everyone will remember this trip for years to come. The owners are wonderful - even mailed an item we left at the house back to us - now that is hospitality! Thank you!
