Located in the village of Lanesville, a quaint part of Gloucester, this romantic hideaway is perfectly situated about 10 minutes from either downtown Gloucester or Rockport.

Charming, pretty, restful!
Charming, pretty, restful!
This home is SO pretty! It's recently been lovingly restored by the owner with a local artist and craftsmen. I especially love the way the kitchen is open to rockers and restful chairs for comfortable conversation. Nice, easy walk to town for magic-like scones at The Grind. Add to this the charm of Lane's Cove swimming area that's a little walk down the street, and I'm comforted that such gentleness and nice people are still alive and well, and making a place for us, too, to call home. We'll be back! Thank you, Susan!
