Property description

Enjoy a wonderful vacation in Manchester-by-the-Sea in Cape Ann, the North Shore’s crown jewel, combining small town feel and a beach atmosphere. This spacious home is conveniently located on Smiths Point, just steps from famous Singing Beach and a 10-minute walk to downtown Manchester, where you can find parks, restaurants, the town’s grocery store, and Captain Dusty’s ice cream shop! This home is the perfect spot for vacationing families, large groups, or reunions. The home’s location and amenities provide countless options for guests. The home is also perfect for families attending a wedding. Inquire about events on the property.

This 9 BR/5 BA home sleeps up to 19 people and has 3 master suites in 3 wings. It was recently outfitted with large air conditioners in the common areas, and all bedrooms have window units.

Every bathroom has a hair dryer.

The 2 acre plot includes a large yard with a pool (open Memorial Day weekend through October 1) and adjoining bowling green enveloped by large pine trees, affording privacy for you and your guests. The bowling green and pool include a croquet set, floaties, beach chairs, umbrellas, and countless toys for pool and beach users. (The pool is shared with two of my cousin's families). There is a basketball hoop in the driveway.

The driveway and garage accommodates up to 6 cars for parking. (NO PARKING is allowed on ANY of the streets).

The home has a gas grill, a refrigerator, a dishwasher, 2 cooktops, 3 sinks, 3 ovens and 2 microwaves. There is both a Keurig coffeemaker and a regular multi-cup coffeemaker. The large kitchen area is perfect for big groups, with an open dining room that can seat your entire party. There is also a patio on the main level and a deck on the upstairs level, both with outdoor furniture. Finally, there is a stairlift for the handicapped.

Enjoy downtime with two TV rooms, and a large living room/sitting room on the upstairs level with a big wood-burning fireplace and a magnificent cathedral ceiling with wood beams. The lower level has a ping pong room/playroom, a bumper pool table, and countless other toys. There is a pull-out couch in the downstairs TV room. The house is wired for cable and WiFi.

The house also has a laundry room with washer and dryer. There are two high chairs, and baby gates are available. Ample linens and towels are also available.

There is an easy 10 minutes walk to a train from Manchester directly to downtown Boston. There is also an easy 5 minute walk to the beach; the beach has a parking lot.

Summer is perfect, but foliage season, Spring and Winter are also beautiful!
