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.
