vacation rental description

A new vacation-home listing for 2014! The property has direct frontage on the tidal inner harbor at Hodgkins Cove. At high tide, we often swim from the property under the road bridge and out into the harbor with its tiny beach. Bring your kayaks, because this is a great spot for kayak explorations of Cape Ann's rocky north shore!

The bright and sunny home has 4 bedrooms. Three of the bedrooms are on the second floor (two bedrooms with queen beds and one bedroom with two twin beds) and one bedroom is in the finished attic (three twin beds and amazing views). It sleeps 9. The house has just undergone a total renovation from top to bottom, and boasts a brand new kitchen, 3 new bathrooms and a new rear deck for Summer entertaining. The refrigerator and stove are brand new for the 2014 season. All the matrasses and linen are brand new in 2014.

Starting at the walk-out lower level is a family room with rear-facing windows to the yard, two couches and a large flat-screen television. Also at this level is the laundry area (washer and dryer new in 2014) and a full bathroom with shower - perfect for rinsing off after a swim. On the next floor up, which is level with the front entrance, are the large kitchen/dining area with access to the elevated rear deck, the paneled front foyer, the comfortable living room with sectional couch and large flat-screen television, and an additional bathroom with glass-paneled shower. On the next floor up are three bedrooms, with ceiling fans, and a shared bathroom with tub/shower combination. Finally the attic contains a cute additional bedroom with 3 single beds and sloped ceilings.

From the deck, or from the rear yard with its granite seawall, the endless play of the tide in the inlet can provide a fascinating backdrop for your vacation, with plenty of wildlife-watching opportunities. We have watched beaver, otter, heron, kingfishers and endless species of ducks in the inlet, along with the expected shoals of small fish.

The house is positioned for great views out into the harbor, Ipswich Bay and the ocean beyond. At night, watch the twinkling lights on the distant coast extend right up to New Hampshire and Maine. The sunsets from this location are quite spectacular.

The property fronts onto Washington Street, which is a well-traveled way situated between the house and the main part of the harbor. Washington Street is part of the route that leads one completely around Cape Ann. The location is is very convenient for exploring the harbor, which is accessible directly across the street, beautiful Plum Cove beach and Lane's Cove (a 10 and 20 minutes walk, respectively, in one direction), and the quaint and picturesque village of Annisquam (a 10 minute walk in the other direction). In addition, hiking inland will bring you to some of the many abandoned quarries that dot the center of Cape Ann.

The house is well equipped, including two large flat-screen televisions with DVD players, wifi, washer and dryer, Kurig coffee maker, a well equipped kitchen and plenty of bed linen. The refrigerator has a door-mounted ice dispenser. The gas stove runs on propane, which is included in the rental fee. The sink has a disposal. There is plenty of parking.
