About the Property

3 Bedrooms, Sleeps 6, 1 Bath, Close To Beach

Perfectly located Turn of the Century Bay View home is nestled between Annisquam Village and Lanesville… just a short walk to Plum Cove Beach, 5 minute walk to the Greenbelt hiking trails in Dog Town, a mile from Halibut Point in Rockport and minutes away from some of the best kayaking in the area.

This Cape Ann getaway is a large updated open living space with one bedroom on the first floor (double bed) and two bedrooms upstairs on the second floor: 1 queen and 2 twin bed (and views of the ocean).

Spacious open concept kitchen, living and dining area opens to the large private deck that offers ocean peeks. Home is light and airy with great livable space... the perfect getaway. The Willow Rest - just down the road - is a must for breakfast and lunch. The Market and Lobsta Land restaurants are minutes away for dinner on the water.

So much to do... boating, whale watching, fishing, swimming at breath taking beaches, and sea kayaking, biking, hiking, a vibrant art community and not to be missed sunsets over Ipswich Bay or on the beach at Plum Cove. Minutes to Rockport, and easily accessible by commuter rail from Boston. Boston & Salem MA -- less than an hour away.

Summer changeover day is Saturday.
Smoke and pet-free. Parking for one car possibly two.
May not be suitable for toddlers (under 5-6)
Check-in 3pm, Checkout 11am

Gloucester, founded in 1623, is America's oldest seaport. It is the quintessential New England town. Among the many maritime activities offered by Gloucester are: world class whale-watching expeditions, lighthouse tours, stunning destination beaches, the Gloucester Schooner Adventure, the Cape Ann Historical Museum, fishing and boating opportunities in abundance, the best seafood restaurants, and a lively nightlife rich with live music and theatre. Gloucester is also the home to National Geographic’s “Wicked Tuna”.

And.....Conde Nast says Gloucester and Cape Ann is a must see:
