Property description

Endless Summer is a beautiful ocean-front cottage in a quiet Lanesville neighborhood. The beach is large, flat rocks typical of the Northern New England coast. Endless Summer is a relaxing getaway located at the end of a gravel road. Plenty of large, picture windows: front-seat views of sunsets over Ipswich Bay, preeminent perspective on in-rolling thunder clouds, clear-day views along New England Coast from Northern Massachusetts to Southern Maine. Spacious wrap-around deck. Two bedrooms, each with comfortable queen beds and attached bath. Downstairs has a large open area that can be curtained off for some privacy when used as a sleeping area, and has a new full day bed and twin trundle. Washer/dryer, fireplace and gas heat. Cozy living room furniture, wall-mounted flat screen TV with cable, Netflix, and Pandora for music. Well-stocked kitchen with dishwasher. High-speed wireless internet and phone (US only) included. Due to the spiral staircase and raised deck, care should be taken to supervise young children, and the downstairs may not be accessible for elderly or disabled individuals.


The Waterfront- Swimming.: The shoreline is made up of large flat rocks. It's good for swimming, especially at mid-tide or higher. The rocky shore makes for great snorkeling- you might even see lobsters! On the sunset waterfront photo, the rock the farthest to the right curves in a backwards c-shape creating what we call 'the bathtub'. You can sort of see it in the picture-- the 'basin' of water just to the left of that rock. That's our favorite place to swim-- you can sit in it when the tide is coming in or out and the basin fills or empties slowly with water. The water here tends to be fairly calm, except on stormy or very windy days, when the waves can get big.

The Waterfront-: At low tide it's fun to explore the shoreline-- tidepools, baby crabs, periwinkle snails, etc. We also enjoy walking along the shore jumping from rock to rock (on the dry parts!!) Also, if sand is what you're looking for, there is a small sand beach just one mile from Endless Summer. The big sandy beaches are about 5 miles.

Gloucester, founded in 1623, is America's oldest seaport. It is the quintessential New England town. Among the many maritime activities offered by Gloucester are: world class whale-watching expeditions, lighthouse tours, stunning destination beaches, the Gloucester Schooner Adventure, the Cape Ann Historical Museum, fishing and boating opportunities in abundance, excellent seafood restaurants, and a lively nightlife rich with live music and theatre. Lanesville, the particular North-Gloucester neighborhood in which our cottage sits, is known for its freshwater granite quarries, its sunsets over Ipswich Bay, and its remarkable immunity to the unpleasant clutter of industrialization.

Rockport is a historical and thriving artist colony. Its local restaurants and art galleries are visited by thousands of tourists each year. Our cottage is only 1 mile from Rockport’s Halibut Point State Park, and 3 miles from its famous Bearskin Neck.

We are less than 1 hour from Boston by car.

Other Activities: kayaking
