  • A Wonderful September Week

    ""Rocky Neck Hideaway" is aptly named. We were thrilled to find this moderately priced, clean, well-equipped rental. Although small, it's nicely laid out, and the two levels make it feel larger. We enjoyed fun walks around Rocky Neck, with its art galleries, restaurants, and interesting houses; a walk of less than a mile to Niles Beach; a walk of less than 2 miles to Good Harbor Beach; and a kayaking trip. The Last Stop Variety, also in walking distance, was great for forgotten items AND delicious muffins. It was easy to drive to downtown Gloucester and elsewhere on Cape Ann. The owner, Elizabeth, is friendly and helpful. We'll definitely consider a return trip!"

  • Wonderful family vacation

    "Rating Details: I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. I was very happy with the location. The vacation rental was spotless. The property manager was very helpful. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Our family loved this house. It provides a beautiful setting for a wonderful family vacation. The views are spectacular from both outside and inside the house. The house is tastefully decorated and is a very comfortable place to spend time. It has plenty of room for everyone to have their own space. It had everything we needed and the rental agent provided any extra services we requested. I highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a special place to vacation. Manager responded on 9/23/2014: We are gratified that you enjoyed Pigeon Cove House as much as we thought you would! We know that you have rented properties which had rates that were twice as much as Pigeon Cove, and are extremely happy that you feel that you received a good value in addition to your fabulous vacation. We look forward to having you back in 2015! Best, AVH Staff"

  • Cross Country to Bell View

    "Rating Details: I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. I was very happy with the location. The vacation rental was very clean. The property manager was very helpful. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We had a wonderful stay at Bell View. Wish we'd had more time to enjoy the house and beautiful surroundings. My old high school cross country team came out to run a relay race and this was our retreat afterwards. There was ample space and beds even for a big group like ours. The kitchen was well equipped and all the rooms were nicely decorated. It worked for us and I'd recommend this rental to anyone heading to Gloucester."

  • Great Getaway for a Family Wedding

    "We stayed at this lovely house during our son's wedding weekend. It was the perfect place for all of us, from the youngest granddaughter to my husband and me. We hosted a brunch the Sunday after the wedding and the layout of indoor and outdoor spaces was just perfect. If ever we are in the area again, we would definitely stay there again."
