Description of the Gloucester vacation home rental
NEW IN 2013: Addition of new windows, insulation, Heat & Central Air Conditioning now extends our season March 1 – December 31.This newly renovated and updated waterfront gem has four bedrooms and 1.5 baths, a deep-water dock (accommodates up to a 20 foot boat) and a wrap-around screened porch where one can sit and watch the glimmering water, wildlife and passing boats go by on the tidal Annisquam River. At high tide swim from the dock or the shore directly in front of the house and at low tide there is great swimming from the sand bar. The sunny, modern eat-in kitchen has gas cooking, dishwasher, full size washer/drier and a half bath. The dining room seats 8 and is open onto the living area which has a huge new sectional and 50 inch flat screen TV complete with a high-end theatre sound system, deluxe cable service and DVD player. The screen porch is pure heaven for sitting during the day, or for those who wish, sleeping on those warm summer nights. Upstairs are 4 bedrooms (two with views of the water) with new linens and decor plus a completely renovated custom-tiled full bathroom with tub and shower. Outside there are lovely newly landscaped front and back yards and plenty of parking as well as an outdoor hot and cold water shower. This is the waterfront vacation you have been dreaming of!

Area Info
Gloucester is America’s oldest seaport, settled in 1623. Situated at the center of Cape Ann, Gloucester has one of the finest harbors in Massachusetts and remains one of the busiest fishing ports on the Eastern seaboard. Visitors are drawn to Gloucester’s rich history, natural beauty, incredible beaches, fresh seafood, and on-water activities, such as the popular whale watch excursions. Gloucester also hosts a sizeable number of artists on Rocky Neck, the oldest working art colony in America. This beautiful city holds within its limits three smaller villages. Lanesville can be found on the way out of Gloucester between Ipswich Bay and the historic woods of Dogtown. It is a very charming and eccentric village whose community hardly strays from the shore. Annisquam is located just minutes off scenic route 127, which wraps around Cape Ann. Annisquam’s center village has the atmosphere of a quaint family-oriented New England retreat. Magnolia is a village located just above Manchester-by-the-Sea in the southernmost part of Gloucester and boasts some of the best sweeping views of Cape Ann. Gloucester is composed of a diverse group of year-round and summer families who have been drawn to Cape Ann for generations because of its traditional beauty and livelihood.

Staying at Buoy 23 is awesome. All you need to bring is you and your bathing suit everything else is provided down to a bar of soap. The kitchen itself has everything you could ask for. Linens and towels are provided as well. The only thing I could think of to make it that much better is maybe having something out side to store the cushions in for the out door chairs but other than that it was a fabulous vacation. Thank you for the use of your home Scott.

Owner's reply:

Thanks for your kind words Lisa! It is our goal to provide your family with the best vacation experience ever. Buoy 23 certainly is a unique place. Nearly all net profit is put back into improvements each year, so it just keeps getting better, and we encourage all our guests to suggest improvements. I have been shopping for a box to hold the cushions, but the quality has been poor. Perhaps we will make one. Either way, that is on our list for next season. Hope to see you again next year!

Wonderful waterview

Wonderful views! Great for extended family-if you envision sharing a lobster dinner with family & friends outside overlooking the water then this is the place to be. Also, we discovered the many sandbars to enjoy.

Owner's reply:

We are so delighted that you enjoyed this wonderful home. We hope you will return next summer!

This is the place to relax

The description of the property above is absolutely accurate. We felt right at home in this roomy & comfortable river place. It's an easy ride from Boston, a short jog from downtown Gloucester and other interesting towns, yet totally tranquil & restful with screened porch on 3 sides. The rooms are all cozy, the decor is very tasteful & gives off a wonderful vibe. There's plenty of room for a family with all the features anyone would need to have a great vacation. The everchanging tidal views of the river were constantly entertaining & educational to watch. We hope to return again next year to get together with family, enjoy more of the local sights & relax at our new home away from home.

Owner's reply:

Thanks Mike & Gerri! It's been so great having you and your family return each year. Buoy 23 is a magical place and it never gets old. We are open May-December and each season has it's own special magic. See you next year!
