  • Winter Wonderland

    "My family of 5 had a great stay at the Pond House for our annual winter vacation to the Boston area. Great location, easy to catch the T into the city as there was a station just a short drive away. Lovely area with the ocean close by, and it's beautiful in the winter. It's also a great location to take day trips to Maine, just an 1 1/2 he drive. The house itself sits on a pond and it was great to watch the local children out playing hockey on the frozen pond. The house was well appointed and the kitchen had everything we would need to cook meals. If I had any suggestions it would be to upgrade the televisions, as our teenage son was not able to connect his gaming system (he's 16, it's pretty much his life) And to have some fire starters/kindlin available for winter guests, we were never able to utilize the wonderful wood stove. (Though I'm certain if we had asked the owners, who are right next door, would have helped) Henry, the owner was excellent to work with and always answered questions promptly. I seriously encourage everyone to experience winter in New England."

  • Girls Weekend

    "Loved the modern yet old fashioned feel to the house. It was very a convenient and fun area with lots of places within walking distance for shopping and eating. So much room for lots of people! We were just as happy to stay in and socialize in such a beautiful setting as we were to explore the area. Monica was quick to respond and easy to make arrangements with. Would definitely make a return trip... which could even become an annual thing!"

  • What a view....

    "We stayed for a long weekend. Rebecca and Dot are great hosts, that offer assistance as you need it or let you to your own thing if you do not. There is a private entrance for renters, which works out well. Plenty of property and a quiet area of Gloucester way high upon a hill that overlooks the marina. Super easy and quick to get into the main drag in town and the property and owners are very dog friendly, which was a big plus for us. We would definitely stay again and will soon."

  • Kennette and friends

    "What a lovely little house for a best friends get away. We loved the view of the ocean and our host Elizabeth was so helpful with suggestions for outings. Very accessible to shops and little towns around the area. Easy access to Hwy's for a fun day in Salem or Boston. Thanks for such a lovely time."
