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.

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!!

Nice little apartment with views of Lanes Cove.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and Instayed here for 3 weeks while we visited with our son, daughter-in-law and new granddaughter! The apartment is clean, cute and well appointed with amenities like washer and dryer, ironing board, and iron, etc. The owner, Richard is a lovely man and was always checking to see if there was anything else we needed for our stay. Our only complaint would be that it was hard to make the bed because the queen size bed just fits in the small bedroom. But I would assume most people who are on vacation....don't really care about making beds! We Would definitely recommend this apartment as a nice place to stay on Cape Ann.

Beautiful location, perfect accommodations

  • 5 of 5

I have come to this apartment for three years now due to it's peaceful location on the water and perfect accommodations. The back deck provides an amazing view of the cove and Richard the owner maintains the property very well so the water is accessible for kayaking or a stroll on the cove. The apartment itself is comfortable and plenty big enough for two people. It is always clean and well appointed.
