Absolutely perfect

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect answer for our wonderful Cape Ann vacation. The house is located on a quiet residential area between Gloucester and Rockport, a short walk from Long Beach. What a welcome respite from the congested towns in late August. It was close to Shaw's Grocery store so our breakfast and lunches were easy to prepare in home. Open the windows and let the ocean lull you to sleep or inspire another chapter in your journal. Having Elizabeth's expert local advice was so great in finding the perfect excursions for our family of five. You rent the house from a stranger who quickly becomes so much less so. Elizabeth walked us to the beach, gave us pointers, then we never really saw her again for the rest of the week aside from her delivery of fresh towels. I can't say enough about their hospitality. I would rent again in a heartbeat.

Kennette and friends

What a lovely little house for a best friends get away. We loved the view of the ocean and our host Elizabeth was so helpful with suggestions for outings. Very accessible to shops and little towns around the area. Easy access to Hwy's for a fun day in Salem or Boston. Thanks for such a lovely time.

Great Place, Great Spot

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful place to use as the hub for a North Shore visit. Short walk to a couple of beaches, and a short drive to several others. Rockport's shops are an easy drive, as are all that Gloucester has to offer. Place is tidy, updated, with great distant ocean view and, at night, wave sounds from the nearby beach.

Great getaway!

We enjoyed our stay on Cape Ann. The rental was as advertised and it was clean. Elizabeth was very helpful and made us feel comfortable. The beach was relaxing, the seafood delicious and the sight seeing wonderful.

Wedding Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at Elizabeth and John's rental home for a week while attending our son's wedding and festivities. Their home is very charming, quiet and immaculately clean. It was very much "home away from home" where we felt very comfortable coming and going throughout the week to attend to wedding preparations and then the special day! The home and location are perfect for exploring the Cape Ann area and we could not have had more accomodating landlords...we are hoping to return in the near future to enjoy the location again!
