About the property

Beachside, 2 Bedroom Loft Apartment Beverly /Salem Harbor

The water views are spectacular and the location is perfect for experiencing all that Boston's North Shore has to offer. This seaside cottage is located on Lothrop Street at Independence Park & Beach on Beverly Harbor, which the Boston Globe selected as one of the ‘20 Best Streets in Boston and Beyond’ in 2012. You will be instantly captivated by the waterfront activity just steps from the front door...sunbathing, swimming, kayaking, paddle boarding, wind surfing, fishing, boating and sailing. Kayak and paddle board rentals, several beaches, parks, fishing piers and marinas are all just steps away.

Just a few blocks away is the vibrant downtown area with numerous restaurants, cafes and shops as well as the train station.

Just 2 miles away is downtown Salem, known worldwide as the site of the infamous Salem Witch Trials of 1692. There's much to see and do related to the trials throughout the city. Other tourist favorites include Nathaniel Hawthorne's House of the Seven Gables and the world-renowned Peabody Essex Museum. Salem also boasts many fine restaurants, waterfront dining, unique and antique shops and a vibrant nightlife. Whether you prefer a walking or trolley tour, there is much to see. Additionally, Boston Harbor Cruise Line operates a ferry from Salem Ferry Center to Long Wharf in Boston to continue your explorations.

If you care to venture out beyond your immediate surroundings you will find the Beverly Train Depot is just 2 minutes away. Northbound will take you to Gloucester, Rockport, Ipswich and Newburyport and southbound to Salem and Boston. Centrally located within an 18 mile radius extending from Boston to Newburyport to Cape Ann, you'll find these popular destinations as well as Salem, Marblehead, Essex, Ipswich, Gloucester and Rockport convenient by train or car. Whether your interests lie in the beauty of rugged New England coastline, the pristine beaches of Gloucester and Ipswich, antiquing in Essex, Boston and Salem attractions, history, Boston sports, theatre, museums, restaurants or whale watching…it’s all close by.

When you are finished exploring the treasures of Boston's 'Gold Coast', return home for a quick dip in the ocean or a leisurely stroll along the harbor and coastline and perhaps a cocktail as you enjoy a relaxing evening watching the waterfront activity from your seaside, cottage apartment.

This newly renovated and fully equipped, 2 bedroom, third floor loft apartment has an oceanfront balcony, private, rear deck and entrances, fully equipped kitchen, linens, and central air for your comfort and enjoyment.

Beverly Lothrop Street

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week in Beverly and enjoyed the third floor apartment. Beautiful view from the front balcony on the street and very pleasant within. The sea breezes were cool enough in August that we didn't use the A/C. Easy walk to public beach and Cabot St for coffee and restaurants. Could improve listing with more specific arrival instructions, but otherwise wonderful.

Owner's Response: Thank you for that piece of information. I thought my detailed instructions were sent automatically from VRBO. I will check the site and remedy that immediately. Again, thanks for that useful information and I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay! Best regards, Kathy

Great, cozy seaside place

  • 4 of 5

Great place... very clean and airy yet cozy. We cooked a few meals and watched a few movies (we brought our Apple TV and the wifi was strong enough to stream movies). Our host helped us with all our questions in a timely manner.

Lovely Apartment in Beverly!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time using VRBO and it could not have been nicer. The apartment is charming, clean and has a beautiful view of the ocean from a small deck off the master bedroom. There is also a larger deck off the back (kItchen) with a nice table and chairs. We kept the windows open and had a wonderful ocean breeze. Check in was flawless. We enjoyed driving around and checking out all the quaint towns nearby. There were also a lot of good restaurants in Beverly that you could walk to. Salem is 5 minutes away. I would definately recommend this property.

Beautiful Apartment

  • 5 of 5

I stayed for a long weekend in May - the apartment was in perfect order and the views were wonderful. Kathleen was very courteous and happy to share information about the local area. This is a third floor unit so you'll get a workout on your way up, but it's well worth it! Quality of the interior space is well above average and hard to find in similar rentals in the area. I would certainly stay there again.
