  • Perfect Vacation Home

    "As we entered the house, we were immediately welcomed with a vase of lovely, fresh flowers. The open floor plan provided a perfect setting for my entire family to always be engaged with everyone. My adult children and their families had lots of fun as the house provided not only all of the essentials inside but had a great yard space complete with gas grill, umbrella, table and chairs and a much used outdoor shower when returning from the beach. The location of the house was perfectly situated between Long Beach and Good Harbor Beach and within easy walking distance of the house. The pictures of the house (or even if you view the house from the outside) do not do justice to the actual space inside the house. It was very spacious and well laid out. The upstairs bedroom with 5 beds and a bath worked perfectly for one of my children's family. The two bedrooms on the first floor were also very spacious, lots of closets. We also found having such great parking available to us was a real plus. There are lots of great spots to visit in the area: Rocky Neck (artist colony) and it also has some great restaurants: The Rudder and the Studio; Rockport with lots of local shops on Bear Skin Neck, Stage Fort Park, Eastern Point for some great fishing, and a visit to the new hotel, Beauport! Our favorite restaurant is Duckworth - but you must make a reservation long in advance of your visit. We hope to come back to this Perfect Vacation Home again next year. PS July 2016"

  • Lovely Accommodations and Owners, Outstanding Location

    "Having lived in MA for many, many years and now living in South Carolina, we always enjoy return visits to explore our favorite locations in greater depth. We were looking for a quiet place on/near the ocean to enjoy fall foliage. "On the Cove" met and exceeded our hopes and expectations. The apartment is large and open with loads of light and views from several vantage points. The kitchen is fully equipped and we enjoyed preparing quite a few meals to balance our dining out and dining in plan. The bed is super-comfortable and was dressed with high-quality linens. Though it was October and much of the garden had been put to bed, it was very clear that the landscaping has great bones and would no doubt be stunning in spring/summer. The owners were just so lovely and accommodating. We could go on and on. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it highly for your Cape Ann adventure."

  • Family Vacation

    "What a great place! This house made our vacation! Our favorite house that we have ever rented! We came with our two kids, ages 13 and 19 and allowed them both to bring friends and the house easily accommodated this arrangement! The house was so well maintained, clean and with lovely details, with a great yard. The deck with grill made a lovely area to eat dinners and there was an inside generous dining room table that sat 6 for colder, rainy evenings. And the location....to die for....one block from Long Beach and an easy 10 minute walk to Good Harbor Beach, which we enjoyed mornings, afternoons and evenings. And, there's a great ice cream shop on the way to Good Harbor. I also need to mention that the generously spaced upstairs area with a full bedroom, bathroom and living room area that has a full size pool table was excellent for my teenage daughter and her friends and of course the pool table was a huge hit with all of us! Also, the owners were so nice and responsive to our needs and questions. We would return without hesitation. Well worth the price!"

  • Fun filled vacation week

    "This was our first stay at the estate home vacationing a week in August, 2016. The house and the setting proved better than we even imagined. The beautiful views of the ocean, rocks and marsh from the expansive deck was so relaxing. The sunsets were stunning and a night of meteor showers were enjoyed by all. The home was clean and very well maintained. The air conditioning was a relief on a few of the days of high and humid temperatures. The living and dining/kitchen area is open, airy and perfect for visiting for our three-generation family. The game room was great for individual play with lots of blocks and toys and the ping pong table provided numerous hours of competitive rounds. The variety and interest of books was a huge hit for all, certainly for the grandchildren. The yard easily accommodated whiffle ball and other outdoor games. The playground and tennis court was an adventure with something of interest for everyone. We took numerous short walks to the beach morning, afternoon and evening. The grandkids loved searching for crabs and other sea creatures. The waves were a perfect size for younger children. For the adults, the water was wonderful for doing laps, floating and chilling in the water. Climbing the rocks and jumping off the dock provided endless entertainment. Everyone enjoyed the kayaks, most their first experience. Many thanks to the owners. Family memories are precious and we're planning on returning to this gem of a vacation home for many years to come."
