About The Owner

My husband and I were in Gloucester the night of 'the perfect storm' and the next morning we decided to take a drive around and ended up buying our first house here a month later. Since then, we have changed locations but not cities! Gloucester is a very unique offering in that it boasts a working class harbor front surrounded by beautiful scenery, homes, and historic buildings. Its downtown is quaint and charming and provides the traveler with one-of-a-kind shops, restaurants, and activities--whale watch anyone?

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2004

Why The Owner chose North of Boston & Greater Merrimack Valley

This vacation apartment is on the first floor of our home on Rocky Neck which we have lovingly restored to bring back its charm from its heydey over 200 years ago. It was the former Colonial Furniture factory and a blacksmith shop before that so it has tons of history! But the best part is its location. You are literally across the street from the ocean and a small neighborhood beach, art galleries, live theater, bars, and restaurants, etc. Come discover the same place that such artists as Fitz H. Lane and Edward Hopper made famous.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a great place to get away to! Relaxing, warm, convenient, and perfectly situated. We found your (our) place to be more than comfortable with everything we needed. We enjoyed walks into the art colony and found folks more than just friendly. Thank you for our warm welcome and all your suggestions. Rockport is an awesome place to visit and so is Gloucester!

Felt Just Like Home!

  • 5 of 5

This was one of our best finds on Home Away to date! The apartment was so cozy and well equipped with everything we needed for our stay including extra towels, plenty of kitchen basics and guides to local beaches, restaurants, and attractions. The location was great for walks to the ocean and drives to Main Street in Gloucester. Lisa was great to work with throughout the booking process and provided us with a warm welcome once we arrived.

We reserved this apartment based on the location in Gloucester. It was convenient for our day trips around Cape Ann. Close to everything. It's located in a really cute area known as Rocky Neck. Close to local beaches and restaurants. It was very clean and comfortable. Thank you.

The property was comfy and well maintained. We had everything that we needed. It was a great!!

  • 5 of 5

The property was very nice. It was spacious enough for the three of us, 2 adults and a child. The area was very centrally located for everything. There were great restaurants and beaches within 5 minutes. It was quiet at night and we all slept very well. Lisa was very accommodating and shared great places for us to visit. We enjoyed our stay and hope to return next summer.

Charming Cottage-Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review! I really appreciate it when guests find the apartment to their liking as I strive to make it a "home away from home." I travel quite a bit myself and understand how the little things matter. I look forward to hosting you again! Best regards, Lisa

Awesome, clean, charming, and everything you need.

  • 5 of 5

I loved this place. I travel a lot for work and have stayed at a lot of different vrbo's and airbnb's. Lisa's place is great. The place is immaculate, which I really value. There wasn't anything I needed. I was able to make breakfast, use the microwave for popcorn (sorry Lisa, I burned the first batch and certain it left the smell for 24 hours!), a great TV, alarm with ipod hook-up, and just everything. I wanted for nothing! The area is super charming and ended up being a simple commute to and from Danvers, where I was working. Thank you, Lisa, for keeping such a nice place for people like me to feel at home while traveling. :))

Owner's Response: Hi Leann, I appreciate your taking the time to submit a review and thank you so much for your kind words! I really try to think of the "little things" and am glad you found the rental to be so well equipped. Yes, this area is extremely charming whether you come in the busier summer or get to enjoy the more laid-back fall and winter. I hope to see you again some time. Best regards, Lisa

great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay. Everything we needed was provided. Clean and charming on the inside...just as pictured. Picked beach glass everyday at the beach that was 1/2 block away. Shopping nearby. We were able to cook our own meals when needed. She had great recommendations written out and was very helpful.
