Car: Recommended

Summerwind cottage is centrally located in desirable East Gloucester - 5 Minutes from downtown by car, Good Harbor Beach, Niles Beach, Rocky Neck Art Colony, restaurants, shops, supermarket, theater, cinema, nightlife and train to Boston. Right in the middle of it all but on a peaceful private lane overlooking Gloucester's scenic harbor.

Rockport's famous shops are a 10 min. drive away.
