This was our first time on Cape Ann and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the cottage. The weather was perfect so we spent a fair amount of time out on the recently constructed deck. The gardens were beautiful and in bloom. Owners were friendly and helpful. Loved dinner at the Lobster Pool. Our daughter goes to college in Wenham, so we'll probably have more excuses for a visit.

Manager response: So glad to hear you had good weather and enjoyed the deck! We think it's a wonderful addition to the Cottage -- a lovely little spot of privacy! No visit to Cape Ann is complete without a Lobster Pool dinner! Add to that an evening sunset over Folly Cove, then a walk up to Halibut Point to enjoy the moonrise over the quarry for a perfect day!

Quiet dead-end street that was beautiful, casual, lush old-time Gloucester. Separate small cottage, with big house nearby and owners on hand. Good privacy for two separate sleeping areas. Furnished with lots of helpful things, and plenty of space to lay "stuff" out. Room air conditioners kept the air cool during a terribly hot week. Very friendly and helpful owner nearby. Nice private deck to enjoy breakfast outside. I would definitely go again. Only drawback was two steps down to the bathroom, so you need to be aware of that.

Manager response: Thanks for pointing out the steps down into the bathroom. This detail is not noted in our descriptions of the cottage so we'll be sure to make folks aware of that in the future! I love your eloquent description of the neighborhood -- perfect! So glad you had an enjoyable time and managed to stay cool in the heat wave!
