About the Property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 9)

This is a wonderful location for a family vacation. A short walk takes you to a private beach where you can swim and dive off the rocks. You can kayak along the coast in safe waters. There are a number of beaches nearby should you want to explore. There are walks around a quaint New England village and plenty of privacy at the house for reading and relaxing. This is a place where you can really get away from too much hustle and bustle and yet be very near to Gloucester and Rockport, communities filled with artists, music, theater and a lot of history and some very good restaurants.

I will consider two night stays in the off-season but generally ask for 3 nights. As this is a quiet neighborhood, I ask that renters be respectful of the neighbors. Thank you

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1946

About the owner: I have owned this house for many years. It's located in a very beautiful, quaint village on the north shore of Boston ( 55 minutes away). I travel quite a bit and would love to share my house with others.

Why the Owner Chose Gloucester, MA, USA:
This house has been in my family for many years.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Private beach within 5 minutes walking distance, private setting away from the road with views of the water, located in unique village with pleasant walks and no traffic. 15 minutes from Gloucester with its art, theater and history as a fishing port. About an hour from Boston and not much more to Portsmouth, NH. Great location for summer vacationing. Lots to do in the area.
