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."

Lovely Accommodations and Owners, Outstanding Location
"Having lived in MA for many, many years and now living in South Carolina, we always enjoy return visits to explore our favorite locations in greater depth. We were looking for a quiet place on/near the ocean to enjoy fall foliage. "On the Cove" met and exceeded our hopes and expectations. The apartment is large and open with loads of light and views from several vantage points. The kitchen is fully equipped and we enjoyed preparing quite a few meals to balance our dining out and dining in plan. The bed is super-comfortable and was dressed with high-quality linens. Though it was October and much of the garden had been put to bed, it was very clear that the landscaping has great bones and would no doubt be stunning in spring/summer. The owners were just so lovely and accommodating. We could go on and on. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it highly for your Cape Ann adventure."

"This historic home near Plum Cove is very comfortable and well-equipped. The simplicity and peacefulness is perfect for a relaxing long weekend in the fall. We even enjoyed an evening stroll under the harvest moon. The memories will sustain us until next year when we hope to stay for longer! Thanks, Karen, for your hospitality and sharing your home with us!"

"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."
