About Eric Cunningham

We are a Gloucester family with roots in the historic fishing industry.

Eric Cunningham purchased this cottage in 1900

Why Eric Cunningham chose North of Boston & Greater Merrimack Valley

Good Harbor Beach is truly a wonderful beach with soft clean sand & crystal clear water. Across the bridge; this is just the right house to enjoy it from.

What makes this cottage unique

Walk to beach any time barefoot. Sit on the deck in your most comfortable clothes and savor early morning and evening quiet. One mile into Gloucester Center for everything from whale watching to urbane nightlife.

Cute house with old world furniture that made it charming. The location can't be beat!

  • 5 of 5

The house is right across the street from the beach with an awesome view. We had a great time. The house is not large, but does have three bedrooms.

I never wanted to leave the deck, which is fabulous!

Awesome Stay - Can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful location and space. Our 17th year in Gloucester, but first time in this home. With 5 adults most of the time, and 7 one night, we had more than adequate space and everything we needed for a great week. The deck overlooking Good Harbor Beach was a perfect spot for morning coffee and an afternoon break and bbq. Our "children" (23 & 18) have already said we have to go back there next year! We didn't find noise from the passersby, traffic or beach to be an issue and felt we had privacy even when on the deck. We look forward to enjoying this location once again and thank you for sharing it.

Great stay!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I really enjoyed staying at the cozy cottage, in front of the beautiful beach, even swam in the inlet under the bridge. The cottage is charming and very peaceful. It was a perfect place for the family to enjoy some quiet time and still be near all the fun and excitement. Highly recommended!

Makes for a really fun time at the beach

  • 4 of 5

We loved our time at the beach in Gloucester. Although small, the house fits six comfortably and provides everything you need for cooking. We only ate almost all our meals at home while there and found the kitchen more than adequate. One drawback for this many adults is that there is only one small bathroom with little space to lay things out.

The location is amazing if you are looking for a place at the beach as it is accessible right in front of the house. The only negative about the super easy access is that it is also super easy access for everyone else so gets very noisy during the day. If you don't mind the noise then spending the day watching the time rise and fall from the deck makes for a fantastic time either working or playing. It's also great if you're looking for a grocery store within a couple of minutes walking and a commuter rail within in few minutes bicycle ride.

Yard is fenced on two sides so somewhat easy to keep track of children playing in it. And it has lots of places to explore as well as an herb garden to cut from.

Only reasons this didn't get a five are the noise (but if you don't mind that rate it a lot higher), the size is pretty small though adequate.

Owner's Response: Hi JS; Glad you and your family enjoyed your stay. Thanx for the review; Of course would prefer a 5! One note, yes, it really is right on the beach. We do maintain a nice thick hedge on the fairly large piece of land though, which provides a lot of privacy even in this prime location. Regards; the manager

Landmark, but Private, Single family Cape on nice size lot with plenty of parking.

Large front deck directly overlooks Good Harbor Beach. Roll out of bed and walk barefoot across the bridge, bring your orange juice too.
