About Linda Amero, Owner

We 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.)

Guestbook comments from the owner

For our family "Glosta" is everything undeniable about MA all rolled up into one beautiful small city. Linda - thanks for creating a magical place for us to stay - it's perfect.

Highlights include:

• Smokin' Jim's baby back ribs (across the street)

• the very tasty linguine w/white clam sauce at Espresso's (super closeby)

• Rockport's kitchen shop "Lula's" is one of a kind

• Rocky Neck was our favorite neighborhood. The old paint factory is a piece of history to behold as is the rest of the community. Everything about Rocky Neck is special.

• Capt. Joe & Son's lobsters are delicious and provided us with several wonderful home-cooked evenings.



Thank you again, Linda.

Ready to move in!

  • 4 of 5

Owners Linda and Hank were always available for questions, but we still felt in our own private space. The cupboards and refrigerator were incredibly well stocked, towels, sheets, beach gear, lots of games, Lovely porch with view of sunsets, big gas grill. We couldn't ask for more in a rental.

Excellent!!!

  • 5 of 5

Linda's rental is literally perfect in every imaginable way. This cottage is centrakly located. The home is FULLY equipped with everything you could possibly think of. And the overall energy of the space was peaceful. There is not one criticism I could think of. And to top it off, Linda was beyond accommodating. I've stayed in at least 30 vrbo places around the world, and most are excellent, but this was by far one of the best. Highly recommend.

Wonderful cottage on Cape Ann

  • 5 of 5

Summerwind cottage is a great place for a couples getaway or a family vacation. It has everything needed for a peaceful, relaxing stay and is close to all types of interesting places to visit - our family especially enjoyed spending time at Good Harbor Beach. The owner, Linda, is very personable and her recommendations for restaurants, activities, etc .. were invaluable. We hope to return at some point in the future.

Nice place

  • 5 of 5

The reviews and owner description describe the property accurately. The place was clean, orderly and had all items necessary for a pleasant stay. The parking is a bit peculiar and would be even more awkward with a large SUV, but still manageable. Overall it's a nice stay and we'd certainly return for another visit when in the area again.

Car: recommended

Summerwind cottage is centrally located in desirable East Gloucester - 5 Minutes from downtown by car, Good Harbor Beach, Niles Beach, Rocky Neck Art Colony, restaurants, shops, supermarket, theater, cinema, nightlife and train to Boston. Right in the middle of it all but on a peaceful private lane overlooking Gloucester's scenic harbor.

Rockport's famous shops are a 10 min. drive away.
