  • Fantastic stay

    "We had a great time with our four kids. Weather was perfect, we enjoyed the ocean, had a lot of bbqs, followed the soccer world championships and played tennis. We all enjoyed the sport facilities on the other side of the street (tennis court, soccer field, playground). The house is perfectly equipped in a very nice neighborhood. Manchester is the best spot to discover Cape Ann etc., we went to Rockport, to Kittery....we would definitely come back again!"

  • Charming Cottage-Great Stay

    "although this apartment is located on first floor of Lisa's home you would think it was it's own little cottage. It is gorgeous. Very nicely decorated with plenty of room for 2. This apartment is very clean-immaculate with great amenities. Loved that it was bright with plenty of outside light. The bed was very comfortable & we slept so well. It was nice sitting at the kitchen table having our coffee in the morning watching the neighborhood people walking their dogs. Nice short walk to ocean. Lisa welcomes her guests & is available to help & answer your questions. Would highly recommend staying here. My Husband & I hope to stay here again soon."

  • Cozy Cottage for a Family

    "I rented this unit for my daughter and her family. They have 3 young children, the youngest being a little over 1. The layout of the unit was exceptionally convenient for them. The 3 bedrooms provided ample privacy, while the living space was open, bright and perfect for the children to play. The washer and dryer were such a bonus, and all of the appliances worked as they should. The refrigerator was spotless, and there were lots of clean dishes and all of the necessary sundry items you need handy (paper towels, coffee filters, soap, etc.) The children loved sleeping in the bunk beds, and the adults felt very safe having them close by. The open design of the unit made it particularly safe for the youngest to roam freely. Since the visit was in winter, they didn't take advantage of being at the beach, but the views of the marsh were lovely. Susan was so accommodating and helpful. She did a great job getting the unit ready and seeing that we had everything we needed. I would highly recommend doing business with her, and I look forward to doing so again!"

  • Family gathering

    "We came up from Texas for my niece's wedding. There were 9 of us staying here. PLENTY of room and kitchen is very well stocked of any cookware you may need. We had a shrimp and lobster boil one night,(plenty of lobster pots) and sat on the deck to relax. Weather was wonderful, had to sleep with a light blanket a couple of nights. The house may seem outdated, but if you are interested in the New England experience and want a comfy place to stay, THIS IS IT!!!! ( If I ever have the pleasure to come up this way again I will definitely stay here.) Photos of the house are great, lets you know the quaintness. The Deck off the back has amazing views of the river and are GREAT for morning coffee and evening cocktails. Gloucester is a quaint little town and Rockport is just up the way, Boston is great place to spend the day and head back here for the evening of relaxation. The owner is VERY nice and personable. HIGHLY recommend this jewel of peaceful bliss to ALL!!!!"
