Truly a home away from home
"However, we are from SW MO, so this was better than home! the seaside cottage feel of the walkout basement apt., made me forget We were actually sharing the house with the owners Stan, Sandy, and Katie! Our days were full driving around Cape Ann taking in Breakfast in downtown Gloucester at Sweet Magnolia's with pineapple fritters, clam chowder in Rockport, and up to dinner a short drive north to Portsmouth NH, down to eating tasty crab cakes at the Woods at the wharf in historic Plymouth. All info provided in our apt booklets provided by our hosts! as well as a bottle of wine, bottled water, Sodas, coffee, teas and the feeling they thought of everything and all first class! Daily newspapers greeted us at the door overlooking the private seating areas and protected cozy Lane's Cove. The furnishings were delightful, color and comfort. The place looks like a professional decorated it with great taste and love for the arts! We hated to leave, but 3 nights were all we had time for as we continued west to look at the fall color. Will definitely want to return!"

"Dudley's review sums it up pretty well. Lovely accommodations, equally impressive for their clever design as for their bohemian ambience. One might put a smaller plant in the bathroom, to allow greater range of motion while showering in the clawfoot bathtub, but placing the clothes washer and dryer in the kitchen to double as countertop space is brilliant. Richard is a warm and thoughtful host, and East Gloucester a pleasant New England fishing town in which to get away from it all without being TOO far away from it all (be sure, though, to bring a little hand sanitizer or rubbing alcohol--the tenant parking spot is directly beneath a beautiful but sap-filled pine tree). My wife and I would happily stay there again."

"Our family stayed at the Beachcomber Cottage for 2 weeks in August, three seasons in a row, which should tell you something. A very comfortable, well stocked house with a versatile floor plan that allows for simultaneous, separate indoor activities in the evening or when weather doesn't cooperate. Long Beach a couple of houses away, and Good Harbor Beach a 5 minute bike ride or less than 15 if you're walking. A popular ice cream place up the street, and groceries, liquor and fresh fish all within minutes. We spent most evenings grilling on the generous deck, overlooking a very large, landscaped, private yard. Plentiful parking and a garage for storing bikes. We recommend the house without reservation."

"Very clean and comfortable. Everything you need. Upgrade to gas grill from charcoal will make it perfect! View relaxes even the most anxious visitors. One feels safe in this rental. We will return each year for sure."
