Lovely cottage close to rocky coastal walks

  • 5 of 5

Cottage was clean and well stocked with supplies for our use. It suited us perfectly. The neighboring cottage residents were friendly and happy, adding to the pleasure of the stay. Since we love to walk along the coast, it was only a short walk across the street to access the rocky shore where we could walk and climb in either direction. Susan, the owner, was friendly and available for our needs.

Great starting point for your Cape Ann adventure

  • 5 of 5

This is a great home base for your exploration of Cape Ann. Gloucester, Manchester and Rockport are a quick drive and all offer great views of the cape, restaurants and easy access to sightseeing walks.

Sue and Hank are very good hosts and seem to genuinely care about your experience. Our stay was very enjoyable and the house was all the space we needed for a resting place with all the amenities of home between sightseeing adventures.

We strongly recommend this rental if you are looking for a restful retreat with a beautiful view and easy access to local attractions.

Thank you Sue and Hank for your hospitality and kindness.

The cottage is a perfect destination

  • 5 of 5

Upon opening the front door we really felt we were on vacation. Nicely appointed in ocean motif, it felt like home for the week. The area is quiet, with nice cottage neighbors and the walk to Loblolly Cove was a nightly event. Thank you for a wonderful vacation. The O'Briens, Salem NH

lovely quiet spot near the bustle of everything

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in this little cabin - close enough to get to all the beaches and stores and tucked just far enough (still having an ocean view) for quiet, restful time back at the cabin. Thank you for a lovely seaside home!

Rockport cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was very cozy and inviting. The views around the property were just beautiful. Plenty to do around the village. And just walking along the road to look at the ocean was spectacular. We had a wonderful time. This is a great place to be with friends!
