Great Location and no-fuss vacationing!
"Cottage has two double beds in separate rooms and three twins in one comfortable space. There is also a small breezy area that we could leave the dog gated in without worry. Kitchen comes fully stocked (might want to bring a bigger coffee pot) and there are towels and linens for all. All hardwood floors make for easy sweep out care and great porch, grilling and private outdoor eating area complete the package. The cottage is close to the street and you have to cross to get to the sidewalk, but Niles Beach is a quick walk around the corner. This beach is wonderful for swimming and the surf is calm for small children. Location is perfect for long walks to Eastern Point lighthouse one way and Rocky Neck art colony the other. Parking is tight for two-three cars but we were able to use the public parking (~1/2 mile away) at Rocky Neck for two gatherings during our stay. Overall-well worth the price and can't beat the location."

Spacious property, beautiful views, private beach - perfect family vacation!
"This home is exactly as pictured and described, located in a safe, private compound, with a private beach. It is clean, updated and well maintained. Perfect for a large family, especially with small children. My kids loved the ping pong table and the many board games - they did not even use the tv! The beach is an easy, short walk for all ages and the beach cove was calm and uncrowded. We enjoyed it daily. The kitchen is large, well stocked and beautiful, and the deck has truly amazing sunset views of the ocean, with lots of comfortable seating. Having a yard, A/C, bbq, washer/dryer, beach chairs, outdoor shower, etc. made our stay carefree. This is not a party house - it is in a quiet neighborhood and many of the other residents were longtime owners. Exceptionally peaceful way to enjoy family time in Gloucester. Karen was very responsive and helpful, before, during and after our stay!"

Great home; highly recommend; clean, convenient, spacious…
"Excellent quiet location within walking distance to Rockport shops/shore/etc. Quick drive to Gloucester and grocery store/ etc. House is deceiving from outside; all rooms are quite spacious and clean. The large kitchen table was great for us 4 adults/3 children and some friends for dinner. No issues with Wifi; clear instructions for renters; games in large livingroom, kitchen/bathroom well stocked; linens/ comforters/ towels provided including extras in closets. Ample parking too. Owner always responded, which is also appreciated. We will most likely rent again when in the area and others have inquired as we share our wonderful visit. Thanks!"

"What a perfect answer for our wonderful Cape Ann vacation. The house is located on a quiet residential area between Gloucester and Rockport, a short walk from Long Beach. What a welcome respite from the congested towns in late August. It was close to Shaw's Grocery store so our breakfast and lunches were easy to prepare in home. Open the windows and let the ocean lull you to sleep or inspire another chapter in your journal. Having Elizabeth's expert local advice was so great in finding the perfect excursions for our family of five. You rent the house from a stranger who quickly becomes so much less so. Elizabeth walked us to the beach, gave us pointers, then we never really saw her again for the rest of the week aside from her delivery of fresh towels. I can't say enough about their hospitality. I would rent again in a heartbeat."
