The Little Red House was the best place to stay! It was even better than expected! It was very clean and organized. Plenty of room, very homey and a great location. You can walk to the beach, into the main part of Gloucester, everywhere! The food in Gloucester was amazing; definitely go to Sugar Magnolias for breakfast and get a beer flight at the Cape Ann Brewing company. Stage Fort Park was a great place to go in the evenings to enjoy the views. Perfect for families, friends, or couples!When I come back to Gloucester, this is definitely where I will stay!

Loved staying at the Lik Red House on a recent trip to Gloucester. Could not have been better. We were there for the GP and the location was perfect for us. Plenty of room and the kitchen was well appointed for a rental. Only downside is that there is only 1 bathroom but we were able to make it work with no problems. We will be racing there again next year and will absolutely be staying here.

Lovely home, perfect visit.

The little red house is very charming and not so little!
It is surprisingly large with roomy and comfy bedrooms and high ceilings. The house is well appointed with everything we needed for our stay. The location was perfect for us, very close to stage fort park. It was extremely muggy outside but the AC's worked great. And the realtor was very responsive to our needs as well.
The only negative is the driveway is narrow and my SUV is really big:)
But I was warned ahead of time.

Nice spot and comfortable

This little red house is really much bigger than it looks! The living space downstairs is fantastic for a family gathering. The kitchen is clean, fairly new, and well equipped. The 3 bedrooms upstairs offer plenty of privacy and space. The one bathroom is fine, however, the house does need a second bathroom or at least toilet and sink.
We were a family of six, all adults, and it fit our needs perfectly! We were in Gloucester for a family wedding and all was perfect!!!

We enjoyed our stay although the lack of a dishwasher and a second bathroom may be problematic for some. The house is close to Stage Fort Park but 10-15 min drive to the better beaches. This is a great location if you have small kids (who can handle stairs); it is an easy walk to Half Moon Beach.

This is our second year at the Little Red House and we were just as pleased as last year. House is clean and roomy, perfect for our family of 4 (2 adults, 2 kids ages 12 & 13) and an additional adult-friend we invited to join us this year. The back-yard

is fabulous for the kids to run around in as well as perfect picture-taking opportunities. It rained a few of the days we were there, so it was great to have a whole house to spread out in and relax rather than a tiny hotel room. The only down-side would be

the fact that there is only one bathroom, and it's on the 2nd floor. Also, more hooks in the bathroom would be appreciated as it was difficult to hang towels, wet suits, bathrobes, etc. Having the washer/dryer was definetly a plus!

Excellent!

My family loved the the Lit red house in gloucester. The location was great, the house met all of our needs. We enjoyed the outside table and chairs where we grilled and ate dinner outside. The information booklet we found very helpful. One small bathroom was the only small inconvienence, but we had no problem dealing with it. The park accross the street was nice. We would definately recommend the rental to other families.

We've been coming to Gloucester for 8 years and this is the first time we've ever rented a house! What a way to go! We'll never do it differently! The house was perfect. Immaculate! The three bedrooms were just perfect for our family of 4, each kid had their own room, and king-size bed in the master-bedroom was a treat! The back yard was great for them to climb on the rocks, play in the woods, and take wonderful pictures. Just a short walk to Stage Fort park for ice-cream each night! Even though we had to drive to get to Good-Harbor Beach, unless you're staying right on that beach, you'd have to drive anyway...and the cost-comparison to those properties out-weighed the benefit in our opinion. It was so convenient to have a full kitchen...not that we cooked dinners, but for the fridge, microwave, snacks at night, breakfast in the morning, it really came in handy. Having the family room w/the dvd player was great as we brought a bunch of DVD's to watch, and the extra tv in the bed-room also came in handy. Would totally recomend this place to anyone (although w/the only bathroom being on the 2nd floor, probably not the best choice for someone w/trouble climbing stairs)...we'll be back next year for sure! We'd be happy to receive emails from anyone interested in discussing our experience.

Great House!

My husband, my girls (4.5 yrs and 1.5 yrs) had
a wonderful time at the Little Red House. The house and amenities were just right for us, and the location was ideal.
Just down the street in the park, we were able to take the girls to the playground, buy wonderful fried clams, and my daughter
got a different flavour of ice cream every day!

The house was all we had hoped for. The organisation was helpfull and we felt as if we were the center of their business. We had a slight problem and it was solved as if they lived the problem themselves.

We have and will suggest the place to friends and family.
