Water View House on Lanes Cove

Property type house


About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

Enjoy sunsets over the water from every room of this sparkling new house on Lanes Cove in Gloucester, Massachusetts. The house will comfortably accommodate a family of four. But it’s also perfect for as a romantic and extra-spacious getaway for two.

The open plan living/dining area has a 42' plasma TV, ceiling fans, lots of windows, and a large dining table that can accomodate six. The well-equipped kitchen is open to the living area and has a range, refrigerator, coffee maker, microwave, dishwasher, toaster, lobster pot, plenty of pantry room, and a washer/dryer. Wraparound deck can be accessed from every room.

In the warm weather, relax on the beach, fish, kayak, sail, hike, bike, or just enjoy the sweeping water view, all right from your front doorstep. Dine on freshly caught lobsters from the boats that return to the cove. Downtown Gloucester, a scenic fishing port, offers excellent restaurants, shopping, nightlife, whale watch and deep-sea fishing excursions. During the cooler months, there is still so much to explore on Cape Ann. We are adjacent to miles of hiking trails that are dotted with picturesque quarries. Shop in the quaint village of Rockport. Also nearby is Essex, birthplace of the fried clam, which boasts 34 antique stores all within walking distance of each other. Historic Salem's rich history dates back to 1692, visit the Peabody Essex Museum. Cape Ann is truly a precious vacation spot.

About Liz Narbonne

My husband Albert and I live in Lancaster, MA which is about an hour and fifteen minutes from Gloucester. Our older daughter, Lily is in Graduate School in San Francisco and our younger daughter Michele lives and works in NYC.

Liz Narbonne purchased this house in 2011

Why Liz Narbonne chose Gloucester

We have always loved Gloucester. Back in the 1970's my Grandmother used to play piano at The Rudder which is a great restaurant on Rocky Neck. I spent a lot of time in Gloucester with her and my parents, family and friends. Fast forward many years our love for kayaking brought us to Lanes Cove. We used to stay at 2 Sunset Point when Steve Ruberti owned it and when it came up for sale we decided to buy it.

What makes this house unique

Lanesville and Lanes Cove are incredibly authentic and beautiful. We fell in love with the friendly people and laid back atmosphere. Lanes Cove is a working Lobsterman's cove where there will always be people working, lobstering, fishing, painting, kayaking, swimming, paddle boarding, laughing, picnicking, sunning on the warm flat rocks beach or just having a beer with friends while watching the sun set over Ipswich Bay.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Loved it here as always! Our 4th Autumn here and we're sure to return. We always find the cutest little towns to explore anew.

Gorgeous inside and out

  • 5 of 5

Liz provides absolutely everything in a perfect home with a perfect setting in the background. Don't like the "touristy" feeling? This is the perfect place to step away from it all, yet be within minutes of downtown. I can't think of anywhere I would rather be. Thank you!

Wonderful Rental

  • 5 of 5

The Lanes Cove house is one of the best rentals- very spacious, comfortable, has everything needed, and the owner is exceptionally attentive and quick to respond. My favorite is staying in the winter, it's so dramatic with the great view. If you get a chance- stay here!

Thank you Liz for sharing your home. The pictures do it no justice. Liz thought of everything and by opening a cabinet or draw you saw that. Very easy person to deal with. Thank you again Liz. We will return to Lanes Cove.

Exceeded expectations. Property had everything required and site description didn't do it full justice. The location was perfect for a relaxing break. We were sorry to leave!
