Family weekend at The Farm
Family weekend at The Farm
Family members from Texas and Florida recently arrived at The Farm for a long weekend celebration.The moment we arrived , we were in love with this beautiful home. We explored every delightful nook and cranny with enthusiasm . The children adored the house, calling it a castle . It even has a "dungeon" ,a wooden bridge, and squirrel gargoyles! This lovely home provided plenty of room for a large family to spread out. While some of us lounged watching tv , others hiked through the lovely surrounding woods, enjoyed the stone patio or sunned on the lawn. The large kitchen was well appointed with everything we needed to cook several meals and was a great spot for the entire family to congregate. The bedrooms were all comfy and provided all the amenities. Chick, the property manager was friendly, very helpful and informative. There is a nice gourmet grocery close by and Annisquam boasts the wonderful Market Restaurant. We really love everything about this place.The quietness of the setting ,the beautiful surroundings ,the character and comfort of the house add up to a wonderful gathering spot. Our family cannot wait to return to The Farm.

Year Purchased: 1976
About: This family home was purchased by our parents in 1976. Our father was raised in Rockport and Cape Ann is home to many family members and friends. Currently 'The Farm', our childhood home, is owned by six siblings. Although two continue to live in Gloucester, the remaining four consider charming Gloucester our beloved hometown. It is a special place, especially during the warm months when one can fully enjoy the many opportunities to be seaside. We are new to renting the house for the summer. It's a fascinating granite house surrounded by acres of quiet woods. Our family has experienced years of wonderful celebrations and memories in this house. We wish the same for you and your families.
Our mother was initially attracted to this property for many reasons. First it was big enough to convene her large and extended family. Second, she loved to garden and maintained several vegetable and flower gardens. Third she loved animals and kept dairy goats, a llama, a macaw, dogs and cats - all had a place at the farm.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
'The Farm' consists of the main house and four other buildings (barn, tool shed, forge and water tower - all occupied by year round tenants) on a multi acre piece of property. All are made from locally quarried granite. Each is one of a kind. This property is an excellent choice for those who enjoy the outdoors in an amazing one of a kind setting. Great for family gatherings!
