Perfect summer cottage
"The house has everything you would want and more. The beach is a short walk and I wish we hadn't bothered to bring chairs and an umbrella because everything was there. I was impressed at the quality of the linens--fluffy towels and cotton sheets. I felt like I was pampered in an upscale hotel. I actually caught the sunrise on the roof deck one morning--a very special experience. Paula and John were very accommodating, even calling the night before to see if we had any questions."

"Our family visited Gloucester for the first time and stayed in this lovely cottage. It was a great location, just up the road from the beautiful beach. Our boys (11 & 12 yrs old) loved digging for hermit crabs (using the buckets and shovels provided at the cottage) and wading in the cool water- they could just walk there from the house. Mary Ann was just lovely and so personable and helpful with directions, what to do, check-in, and any questions! She had great recommendations for whale watching (Cape Ann), shopping and scenic drives and walks. The loft was perfect for the boys. They had their own tv and space to relax. The stairs up to the loft would be challenging for young children or older folks. The kitchen was well stocked, clean and spacious and having the washer/dryer was a plus! The main floor bedroom had plenty of closet and drawer space, extra blankets, and privacy. The cottage is attached to the larger house, which was vacant during our stay. It may have been a little "too close" if we had to share parking and outside space w/ people we didn't know. It would be perfect for 2 families or groups traveling together to rent both cottage and house, since they are attached. Wi-Fi was not always working or a strong signal, but they quickly came out to correct it. Would definitely recommend this rental and working with MaryAnn and Steve. Very friendly and helpful and proud of their lovely town of Gloucester."

"Awesome relaxing, total freedom, beautiful fully appointed home. LOVED it! Sunset every evening, perfect for entertaining as well. No dishwasher or garbage disposal tho,.. and concerned that they don't recycle.... so we did some ourselves. Grew up in area, we have extensive knowledge of area, so this was great for us!"

"We loved this sweet cottage. Very comfy and easy. Rooftop deck is fantastic. Favorite place was the sunroom -- great for gathering in the evening with friends. Nice area for walking. Enjoyed the basin views. Minutes from Newburyport. We'll be back."
