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.

Absolutely amazing! Loved everything about it!

  • 5 of 5

This was hands down, the best experience I have ever had with a vacation rental. First of all, Linda and Hank are two of the nicest people and go out of their way to make your stay wonderful and share local information if you ask (you should ask because they are a wealth of local information). Linda was very accommodating of our arrival schedule and also loaned me an umbrella because I forgot mine. The house is extremely clean and well kept. It is small and cozy, but there was plenty of room for two couples. The deck and view are lovely and relaxing with a nice gas grill that we made use of. Really quiet neighborhood, with no traffic noise or loud neighbors. The living room furniture and beds are cozy and comfortable. The kitchen has all the amenities you could want, plus plenty of spices and cookware. There is even a lobster pot! The high-efficiency washer and dryer are a great bonus and even included laundry soap. The location is close to everything including Salem, Rockport, and downtown Gloucester. Walking distance to some restaurants and shops, and you can buy live lobster right across the street! I can't think of enough nice things to say about this house. We absolutely loved it! I will definitely stay there again the next time we go back to Massachusetts. Thank you, Linda and Hank!

Had a wonderful stay in a lovely house.

  • 5 of 5

Nice place, clean and felt like home. Read the book on the island it explains everything pertaining to the house. We ate at Charlies restaurant for breakfast and dinner right around the corner and it was inexpensive and delicious, right across the street from charlies is stop and shop and CVS for a quick run up to the store. Just one mile away is Marshalls, dollar tree and more groceries. We loved to get up in the morning and have coffee out on the deck facing the Harbor, we enjoyed the fully equipt kitchen which also had a martini shaker! They thought of everything. Close to Glouchester and Rockport, and only 25 minutes from Salem. We will be back for sure!

Great place in Gloucester

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful cottage in good location in Gloucester. Very clean, comfortable beds, everything you need in kitchen, great view of harbor. Owner nearby for any questions. Spent time in Rocky Neck . Recommend "The Studio" for really good food. Take the Water Shuttle to get great views of the inner harbor of Gloucester.

Great hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We had a super time in beautiful Summerwind Cottage! Linda was always very helpful and nice, it was a good feeling knowing her to be around. Everything in the house was clean and it was especially pretty decorated. With a family of 4 with children, we were especially glad about the new big washing machine and dryer (and the children where happy about the TV with Netflix sometimes :-)! Gloucester is a very nice town, we felt very well there and in the Summerwind Cottage! All the best and thanks again to Linda and Hank!

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.
