Description of the Gloucester vacation home rental
Direct waterfront on picturesque Goose Cove, this immaculate property provides endless delights, both inside and out. This sunny and welcoming home is situated at the water's edge of the cove and offers three large bedrooms and 3 full baths as well as a lovely eat-in kitchen, formal dining and living areas and a big sun porch aka family room. Boasting gleaming hardwood floors throughout the house except in the tiled kitchen and baths, the house positively shines. Enter into the foyer off of which is the first bedroom with twins. Down a short hall is the fully applianced and cheery kitchen with oak cabinets, plenty of counter space and a dining area surrounded by windows overlooking the cove. Down the hall and past the red and white bath (with an oversized shower) enter into the open concept formal dining and living rooms with views and a fireplace. The last room on this level is the sun room, which may be the favorite, with a vaulted ceiling and lots of comfortable seating to enjoy the 50+ inch flat screen TV and those views! Walk out onto the wraparound deck and down into the multilevel yard which eventually ends in the water... Upstairs are two master bedrooms each ensuite with a full bath, one with a double bed and the other a queen with a built in office space and even better views from the higher elevation! Launch your kayaks from the dock, into tidal Goose Cove which is locally well known for its "whitewater" that appears near the causeway when the tide is coming in. Other than that the cove is tranquil and serene with abundant birdlife and amazing sunsets.

Area Information
Cape Ann is a peninsula in northeast Massachusetts made up of four towns: Gloucester, Rockport, Essex, and Manchester-by-the-Sea.

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.

At the northern-most tip of Cape Ann lies the quaint town of Rockport. Settled in 1690, Rockport quickly became a leader in granite cutting; many of these outcrops can be seen today at various quarries. A host of interesting shops and galleries are located on Bearskin Neck and surrounding Rockport's charming harbor, which is still home to an active fishing fleet. Rockport is one of the country's oldest artist colonies and boasts some of the most widely painted seaside landscapes in the world, including the coastal shack known as Motif #1.

The Essex River, home to some of the best clam flats in the world, forms and contours of the Town of Essex. The river has also played a significant role in shaping the history of Essex. In the past, shipbuilding was the primary industry in Essex, as it was the site of the construction of over 4,000 schooners. Many of the schooners built in Essex were constructed for use from the port of its neighbor, Gloucester. Today, Essex attracts thousands of visitors to its many antique and specialty shops, fine dining establishments such as Woodman's award winning seafood, and beautiful scenery. Tours of the river by boat and kayak continue to ensure its continuing prominence in the life of the Town.

a well needed rest

September 29, 2012

My husband and I take pleasure in visiting our hometown at least once a year. We have rented several homes in Rockport and Gloucester. We feel that this past week at Waters Edge was one of our most relaxing and comfortable. Not only is the house welcoming, comfortable and Cape Ann Charming, it is right on the water. We enjoyed fishing off the dock as well as the nearby Annisquam Bridge. Lots of lovely fall views, and a week of relaxation. Our local family members were able to visit and we comfortable entertaining. To me, Goose Cove is one of the gems on Cape Ann I didn't know about. We would come again for sure.
