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.
Sports & Adventure Activities
Gorgeous inside and out
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!
This was our first time using vrbo. It was a wonderful place to stay. Equipped with everything you would want. Liked like home in everyway. Thanks for everything.

Very clean and comfortable. Everything you need. Upgrade to gas grill from charcoal will make it perfect! View relaxes even the most anxious visitors. One feels safe in this rental. We will return each year for sure.
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!
My location is not downtown Gloucester. I am located in the Lanesville section of Gloucester near Lanes Cove on Ipswich Bay. Downtown Gloucester and Rockport are both 15 minutes away by car.
