Great Northeast Ocean Experience
Love the house and the location. Cape Ann is amazing, but perhaps not for folks looking for a typical beach vacation. The "beach" is rocky and typical of the Northeast shoreline, and not a sandy beach. However, there are more typical beaches in the area. We were content to camp out on the rocks and the weather was not really conducive to swimming anyway. But you could swim if the ocean wasn't too rough. Great place if you want some peace and quiet times. The house is really nice and well equipped, with great views of the ocean!
If you like climbing rocks and ocean view, this is a great location.
Great location. The house was nice and just what we were looking for.
No complaints the house met our expectations. Only small issue was the bed in the kids room was very uncomfortable. But overall the vacation and house were great.
We've had an amazing time here. House is clean, open and spacious. The backyard was great for grilling and we used the firepit nearly every night for the last two weeks. We figured out where to go at high and low tides. Pretty
Can't wait to rent again!
We rented this house for the fourth as a last minute plan and we are so gald we did. We had such a wonderful vacation and are already discussing our next vacation!! My boyfriend and i went with two other couples and it was picture perfect. The beach during the day and a fire at night with a gorgeous sunset - couldnt ask for more. The best part was we could all do our own thing or we could do activities together at our own leisure. Everything is right there!
Rented for a week before and SOOO excited to be able to rent again. Great space - comfortable beds. wonderful spot - can be active or lazy and the sunsets are the best. Highly recommend the spot. Gloucester and Rockport are great tourist towns. Owner is very nice and helpful!
This home is half mile out of the village of Lanesville on Lanes Cove, a scenic and historic harbor. It is also just 10 minutes from the village of Rockport, with shops and beaches. This home looks over a rocky shore with flat rocks excellent for long exploratory walks as well as lots of swimming, fishing, kayaking, sunbathing, and cookouts.
