About the property

One-bedroom apartment on Lanes Cove

A charming apartment on Lanes Cove featuring a comfortable living room with pull-out sofa, dining alcove and nicely provisioned kitchen. The bedroom has a queen-size bed, bureau, and armoire. There is a full bath with shower and a separate laundry. The apartment has cable TV, DVD, and WiFi. The living room opens to a spacious deck through sliding glass doors. From the deck there is a stunning view of Lanes Cove and Ipswich Bay. Beyond is a yard with play areas and landscaped gardens. A pathway leads directly to the cove. The apartment is just right for one or two people, but another adult or 2 children would be equally comfortable.

Need more space for your family and friends? View our Carriage House that sleeps 10, on the same property, at VRBO 485231.

The apartment has a Fujitsu climate control system and its own washer and dryer. Off street parking for two vehicles is provided. Wireless internet and broadband access are provided.

The Lanes Cove House apartment is located in the village of Lanesville, on the northwest coast of Cape Ann. It is close to Rockport, and ½ mile from Plum Cove Public Beach. The apartment is a stone's throw away from Lanes Cove with its scenic granite breakwater. Swimming at Lanes Cove and diving off the granite wall is refreshing and exciting. Space on the property is available for your kayak or small boat. Lanes Cove is noteworthy for being one of the few areas in Massachusetts where ocean sunsets can be viewed.

A perfect little gem with charm and space

  • 5 of 5

The little apartment was very clean and was a short walk to Lane's Cove. It's small but had enough space to put all our clothes and gear away which, to us, is the best way to feel settled in. Plenty of room to store groceries and it had a washer/dryer. The location is great; close to Rockport and Gloucester but aside from a quick foray into both towns, we went to many beaches, parks and coves around Cape Ann. There's a lot to see and do. Lane's Cove is a two minute walk through the owners' beautiful gardens and lawn. Lots of sea glass in the little beach. We wanted quiet and peaceful. We got both! Thanks, Jane and Richard.

Excellent Location & Property!

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with this property. We rented this 1 BR for 10 days then rented the Roses' Carriage House (VRBO #485231) for an additional 10 days while in the Rockport/Gloucester Area for a family wedding. Both properties were clean, well-furnished and comfortable.

The Roses are very helpful. Any question was promptly answered cheerfully.

We would consider renting at either of their properties again.

Fantastic area to visit and great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The owners Richard and Jane were both terrific. The place was clean and had everything you would need. The best part was the view! The beach is jusr a short walk from the back of the apartment. There is a great deck to sit and watch the sunset on the water. The whole area is just lovely. I highly recommend it.

Location, location, location

  • 5 of 5

Wife and I were greatly impressed with our stay at Richard's rental in Lanesville, MA. The location of the property was perfect. Situated just about halfway between Gloucester and Rockport it was convient to both of those small, quiet seaport communities and the dining and shopping opportunities they offer. Only 100 yards or so from the beach and just about 1/4 miles from the quiet and quaint Plum Cove beach, we had easy access to the water and sunshine. Also nearby, within walking distance, are the historically interesting abandoned granite quarries which not long ago were the economy of the area. The local festivals, yard sales and other community activities also added to the ambiance of our August stay.

Very important to us was the quietness and serenity of Richard's rental. Sunsets were stunning and added to the relaxing quiet. During our late summer visit traffic was light and quiet and driving about was never a hassle.

The property was clean and well kept, everything, (appliances, etc) was working and convient. The outside area was well maintained with outdoor furniture to enjoy the seaside character of coastal Massachusetts. We had a great stay and will very likely return.

Charming and Cozy

  • 5 of 5

We had the most relaxing vacation at the Lanes Cove House apartment. It was so clean and comfortable, the kitchen had everything you would need for a weeks stay. Sitting on the covered deck in the morning drinking coffee and looking at the beautiful landscape and the water was magnificent. We have been staying in Cape Ann for 22 years and this was the best place we ever stayed in. Richard and Jane were gracious hosts.

Relax and Unwind

  • 5 of 5

"I don't think I have been more relaxed and comfortable in a setting in a really long time" words spoken to me by my husband on our 2nd day at the Lanes Cove Apartment. We enjoyed the view and karma of the back yard area and porch. The walk to Lanes Cove was a delight as well as exploring the various side streets in the area. The unit was very well equipped, clean, cozy and had all we needed to make some great meals. Loved that there was a small neighborhood store a couple mins walk away for a bottle of wine or box of pasta we had forgotten. Parking was outside the door and Richard and Jane were very interesting. We will definetly be back!!
