This spacious three-room apartment is located directly on Lanes Cove in Lanesville (Gloucester) with spectacular ocean views from every room and is literally steps to the waters edge. It has a private entrance, full kitchen, living room, bedroom with queen bed, off-street parking, private patio and yard. Sorry, we only rent for two occupants.
NOTE: We are located about 600' from the breakwater surrounding Lanes Cove. Beginning in late May the south breakwater is being rebuilt after damage from several storms. This will entail heavy construction equipment. We don't know how much disturbance this will cause our guests--it could be a lot, or could be quite interesting--we just don't know. Please consider this before booking--feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
On the Cove was recently used as a movie set. You can search for "Katie Fforde: Herzenssache" to find the movie online. The property was used extensively, as well as surrounding landmarks such as the Fish Shack and along the rocky coast. Also, you can find our webcam by searching "On the Cove" to check out what's going on and the current weather.
When you stay, you will enjoy the intimacy of the cove as well as the views of Crane Beach and Plum Island across Ipswich Bay. This area is famous for phenomenal sunsets (National Geographic has called it one of the ten best in the world). Lanes Cove is a favorite spot for artists and kayakers alike.
Lanesville is one of the quaint villages encircling Cape Ann and is conveniently located about 10 minutes from either downtown Gloucester or Rockport. You can swim in the cove or take a short walk to Plum Cove beach. Halibut Point State Park and Dogtown Common are only a mile away.
Gloucester is only an hour by train or car from Boston and is one of New England's best-kept summer vacation secrets. From earliest settlers in 1623 to today's Hollywood film-makers, the beauty of Cape Ann has drawn people from around the world. Recently made famous in the movie "The Perfect Storm", Gloucester has a rich maritime history and is the oldest working seaport and active artist colony in the United States. Gloucester's historic fishing port, Rockport's famous art galleries, the unique antique shops of Essex, and the old, New England charm of Manchester-by-the-Sea, make Cape Ann the perfect vacation destination.
The apartment is strictly no smoking.
