We had a great time, relaxed, swam, hiked, biked - the house was perfect - clean, functional, close to the beach.
The only downside is the busy road near the house.

We spent six days at Annie's Place near Lanesville. Our family of five went and we brought our dog. We swam every day, fished, visited Rockport, cycled, cooked at the house and went to the lobster pool down the street, had early morning walks, relaxed and read - overall we had a fantastic time. We really liked that we could walk to the beach in three minutes and into Lanesville in ten minutes. The only issue we had is the house is very close to the street and the street is narrow and busy - pulling out by car onto the street is not easy.

Our stay was just OK

The house was cute, clean but on a very busy road. Woke up every morning to the sound of loud trucks and or motorcycles driving by. Parking on the property is limited and difficult to back out onto the main road or onto a shared driveway without backing out onto the neighbors lawn. A short walk to Plum Cove was a plus but parking there was for residents only. Planned a picnic on the beach with family in the area but there was no parking available! Owners allowed dogs which was wonderful but you cannot take your dog for a walk on the beach at any time during May thru September. Something to consider when taking Fido along.
Manager response on 2016-07-15 - Response from AVH Realty Inc
Annie's Place is a sweet and straightforward property that has limited parking which was disclosed and priced accordingly. The City of Gloucester has ordinances preventing dogs on beaches in the summer months and also limits beach parking to residents only. This ordinance has been in effect for many years. However, there is parking for non residents on the side streets near the property that is just a short walk away. Overnight parking is also available on those streets for those who do not want to park in the driveway. The office can make recommendations.

We really liked Annie's Place. The home had a great location. We could easily drive to the towns of Rockport or Gloucester. We were a group of 6 and this home suited us well. We liked the fact that we were not right in the middle of these towns but within easy reach. It was roomy enough and had a well stocked kitchen with all the utensils we needed. We also really liked all the open shelving in the dining room so that would could put all our food there. That made it so easy and convenient. The home was neat and clean and was awesome to have laundry and beach towels/toys. The only issue was the parking space as has been mentioned in other reviews. The driveway parking space is not big enough to put your car unless you have a small compact car. I really do think part of the back yard should be turned into a nice parking pad. Perhaps it could be made with granite as it seemed plentiful. As long as you have someone in your party waving you out to the street when no cars are coming you can get out of the driveway quite well. Thanks! Overall great place and would recommend!

We loved our stay at Annie's Place at Plum Cove! The home is adorable and has all of the comforts of home. We were able to eat nice meals at the house, the kitchen had all of the cooking supplies we needed. Dishwasher and laundry soap were even available! The beach is a very easy walk and we were pleasantly surprised to find beach towels, beach toys and even a cooler! The one parking space is small but this small inconvience would not keep me from this lovely house in Gloucester.

Cape Ann is a great vacation destination. Crane Beach is gorgeous. Third bedroom a little small. The parking is tight, but we made do. A mirror across the street would be helpful. The house had everything we needed for a great vacation.

We had a good stayin this old house. Everything we needed was there and the proximity of a fishing pier was realy a good surprise for my son. Our only downer was the proximity of route 127 that Is extremely noisy and the risk you have to take everything time you have to leave or park at the house.

We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your vacation here, and we regret that the parking and busy street detracted from that enjoyment. We will continue to work with the homeowner to identify alternative parking solutions for the future.

We loved this house and the location was awesome. A quick walk to the beach for the most beautiful sunsets. Walk into Lanes Cove for coffee and great food at the local coffee shop. The home was spacious and very clean. Everything was well thought of as far as amenities for the house. Comfortable beds and living spaces. The beach towels and washer/dryer really made it all easy. AVH is very organized, and very attentive to their customers. I would defintley rent from AVH realty again. I am not sure how to rate location, as proximity to everything was EXCEPTIONAL, but at times a busy road and the driveway was an issue for us. The owner and AVH gave us alternatives that made it work fine for us. (Down the) street parking solved the problems. Wonderful week, thank you!

We were in the middle of selling and buying our home and we needed to accomodate our family for a month.. Annie's and AVH has been great and flexible. It was an inviting place to stay during our transitition. We even took advantage of Plum Cove Beach on some of last fall warm days. Parking is tricky but we managed with two large cars!

Annie's Place is worth the trip!

Our week at Annie's Place was wonderful! The accommodations were very nice and it didn't take very long to feel at home in this lovely New England house. The only downside we found was with the driveway. It is a blind driveway with no good place to put your car. If you have more than two cars in your party there won't be room for them. It is also a blind drive and very dangerous to get out of and onto the road. Otherwise this is an excellent location.
Manager response on 2015-06-22 - Response from AVH Realty Inc
We are so glad you enjoyed your week at this charming home. We do say it has parking for one car and that is above the house in the graveled area. It can accommodate a small car at the bottom of the drive but that's it. There is on street parking a few blocks away.

It was a very beautiful, quaint cottage. Plenty of room for the 5 of us. loved that beach stuff was included. it came in handy The only issues we had was parking, didn't know the grill didn't work until someone came to fix it on the 4th day, and there was stagnant water in the left sink under a cover that we only could smell until I investigated. But that kind of stuff happens and it really was ok. But it was the parking that was a bummer and being on a busy street which cars and trucks woke us up every morning. And that is why we probably would not come back.

We felt like we were at home. Enough space and very well located near a nice beach. The only thing was the parking....very difficult and a bit dangerous. If we could use the parking on the grass up the alley! We'd like the beach at the walking distance
and that was nice to scuba dive.
