About Linda Amero, Owner

We just love meeting all the wonderful folks who come from far and near to enjoy our beautiful surroundings. Hank and I grew up on Cape Ann and have lived in Gloucester for 30+ years... we wouldn't have it any other way! (Linda is a jazz vocalist/artist, and Hank is a woodworker/avid boater.)

Linda Amero, Owner purchased this studio in 1992

Why Linda Amero, Owner chose North of Boston & Greater Merrimack Valley

A Sunset Serenade offers the best location ever - situated between Good Harbor & Niles beaches, 5 min.by car to downtown shopping/restaurants, and 5 min. to Rocky Neck Art Colony galleries with it's fabulous, funky restaurants on the harbor.

What makes this studio unique

Relax on your private deck overlooking Gloucester's scenic harbor after a stressful day at the beach!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Linda,



It was the first time that we choose a rental instead of an hotel for our vacation. My boyfriend prefer hotels! I had to work hard to convince him and we were very pleased with our new choice. If every rentals were like yours I would never choose the hotel option again. Particularly we appreciate, in addition to your warm welcome, many aspects that made our stay very pleasant: cleanliness, fresh smell and fresh air at night, bed comfort, pure cotton linens (we hate polyester that we find everywhere even in upscale hotels!!!), bare floors instead of rugs, well equipped kitchen, nice view, ocean proximity, Gloucester that we fell in love with decades ago, a great feeling of being at home and above all those details...our hosts! Thank you very much for this wonderful week.



We join two photos taken from your deck at sunset.



P.S. Be indulgent for my English!

Perfect home base to explore

  • 5 of 5

This apt was a great place to start our exploration of the Cape Ann and surrounding areas. The place was exactly as the pictures show. It's cozy but meets all your needs for 1 or 2 people. The owners are so great and super helpful. We walked all over the place and most places are within a 15 to 30 minute drive depending on where you want to go. Just keep in mind that many places are closed on Mondays.

Owner's Response: We loved having you folks as guests and are happy to hear that you enjoyed the central location (and got to do a lot of walking, too). Thanks for the heads-up about Mondays but not exactly sure what you mean by many places closed... if you get a minute perhaps you could email me with details. We always like to make sure our guests are well-informed during their stay and welcome your input. Thanks again and hope to have you back in the future.

Glorious spot, cozy, comfortable and scenic.

  • 5 of 5

Linda and Hank are the most gracious, accommodating--and fun--hosts you could hope for. (They also know how to give their guests privacy and space if they want it .). We are return guests at their place for 5 years. We always look forward to a perfect stay at the studio, and this year was no exception. Can't wait til next year's trip already!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words and appreciation, Hank and I look forward to your return visits to the studio with great anticipation! It's always nice to hear that you enjoyed your stay once again - we love that you love Gloucester and the area so much. Hope to see you next year!

Our stay was totally carefree and therapuetic.

  • 5 of 5

The listing was accurate as provided on HomeAway. It was clean and well maintained. We ate most of our meals at home, so the kitchen and its amenities were excellent. We had an excellent celebratory meal at the Duckworth Bistrot. We enjoyed the art galleries in Rockport, Gloucester and Manchester by the sea. We are seafood lovers and there are many sources of fresh fish. Our overall experience was excellent and we treasured our relationship with Linda and Hank.

Delightful owners, stunning view, comfy bed!

  • 5 of 5

One of the best vacations I've had in years! The owners were charming and attentive but also respectful of my privacy, which is important to me as a writer. The deck was a sublime writing spot and when I was done it was an easy stroll over to Good Harbor beach. There were even beach towels and chairs available for me to use so I didn't need to bring any gear. The studio was spotless when I arrived, and the kitchen perfectly stocked. I cooked more during my stay then I do at home. Such a great location in Gloucester! I enjoyed visiting Rocky Neck, Good Harbor, and (as a New Yorker who has lived years without a car) walking to the downtown area. I've recommended Sunset Serenade to my friends and family as an idyllic getaway spot. My dream for next summer is to convince some of them to go in together with me on the owner's additional cottage property.

Map

Car: recommended

Gloucester, settled in 1623, is America's oldest seaport. Situated at the center of Cape Ann, Gloucester has one of the finest harbors in Massachusetts and remains one of the busiest fishing ports on the Eastern seaboard. Visitors are drawn to Gloucester's rich history, natural beauty, incredible beaches, fresh seafood, and on-water activities, especially the popular whale watch excursions. Gloucester also hosts a sizable artist population, many of whom can be found on Rocky Neck, the oldest working art colony in America.
