Home Away from Home!
"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!"

"My family and I spent the most wonderful week in this beautiful vacation home. Whether we were sitting on the outside upper deck feeling the warm breezes, or on the main floor with full sliders with a panoramic view, the ocean was never far from sight. The rooms were spacious and beds were very comfortable. There was plenty of parking. The internet, large TV and speakers were ideal for our children. The walk to Good Harbor was quick and scenic. After drinking our coffee on the upper deck, we would walk to either Long Beach or Good Harbor, eat lunch, then off to the beach to enjoy the waves and take the low tide pilgrimage to Salt Island. Just a wonderful week! We hope to return again."

"We had a wonderful time at the Golden Cottage in Rockport!! We stayed for a long weekend while in the area for a family wedding. Our three adult children (in their twenties), two girlfriends, and my husband and I all had a great time there. We loved the view from the back deck and ate breakfast there every morning. The beds are very comfortable and the towel supply was plentiful. We also loved walking around the town of Rockport. Most of our time was taken up with wedding activities, but we did manage to fit in a walk down the path to the scenic rocky beach. Overall it was a great stay and hope to come back again next year and stay longer!!"

"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."
