  • 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."

  • Annual Family Vacation

    "This was our second summer at the Golden Cottage and it was more enjoyable than the first. The set up of the home, the great views and perfect location make the Golden Cottage a great family gathering spot. Don't miss the Lobster Pot, best lobsters ever and for a special night we would recommend The Market Restaurant in Gloucester."

  • Fantastic Winter Escape

    "We arrived on Plum Island during a small Nor'Easter but upon driving up to this charming cottage on the beach, our minds forgot about the weather, we entered through the door and we spent the next 6 days enjoying this wonderful and relaxing cottage. We enjoyed the home very much and it really was an easy decision for our group of 4 adults to rent this cottage over a couple of hotel rooms. Newburyport is a quick drive up the road, we found all we needed to make our week a perfect time. The home is well furnished, the kitchen is fully stocked with great appliances and dishwares, the beds were comfy, the bathrooms perfect and the fireplace came in handy a couple of the cold nights to take the chill out of the air, although the heat worked very well in the home too. The lobster pot was used often as we enjoyed buying our lobsters in town or right from the lobstermen in Gloucester, a quick and easy drive from the cottage. If we return to the area, we will definitely return to the cottage and rent again."

  • Very charming house, beautiful ocean view, and fully equipped!

    "We family of 4 with 2 elementary school girls stayed here for 1 full month. When we moved in, we were impressed with how clean and arranged house was. Even the typical spots in kitchen near stove and floor corners were all clean! The house owner is extremely kind and obviously takes care of this house with extreme care. The location is brilliant with walking distance to beautiful places like Fort Sewall & Crocker Park and local (beloved) restaurants like Jacktar and Landing. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED."
