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 Gloucester

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.

A good location and Lisa was great.

  • 5 of 5

The place was cosy and clean. The bed was very comfortable. The house is very close to the road but the outside noise didn't bother. We did park our car in a lot about 1/2 a block from the house. In walking distance to the water, restaurants, a theatre, artist shops and a great little store. We would stay there again.

Beautiful apartment in the heart of Rocky Neck

  • 5 of 5

I loved Lisa's apartment! It was beautiful, clean and situated within walking distance to so many beautiful sights -- the Gloucester Stage, wonderful restaurants, amazing walkable neighborhoods, and of course, the sweet quirky spit of land known as Rocky Neck Art Colony. Lisa made my stay completely comfortable. She offered suggestions on activities and beautiful beaches for relaxing and collecting sea glass, and was hospitable and welcoming to her home. I would love to stay here again.
