Description

Enjoy the views of the sparkling Annisquam River, lovely Wingaersheek Beach and the Annisqaum Yacht Club just across the river. You'll also be wowed by the incredible sunsets that await you every evening from this 3 bedroom/3.5 bath vacation rental home, which efficiently and effectively packs a high quality and gleaming contemporary living space into a moderately sized footprint.

Upon entering the house, or while standing over the water on your prow-shaped deck, you are immediately impressed how open the house feels, and the sensation of being so close to the water. The open concept living/dining and kitchen allow you to enjoy the views no matter where you are. The gleaming Brazilian cherry floors tie each area to the other creating a sense of convenience as well as beauty.

The contemporary kitchen offers lots of engineering delights such as cabinets that lift up as opposed to opening to the right or left. There are two seating areas on this level, one situated to take advantage of the water views and the other the large, wall mounted flat screen.Tucked under the stairs is a darling half bath.

On the second floor are two bedrooms, the waterfront master king with ensuite bath with glassed shower and double sinks, and the second smaller bedroom, which makes the most of its space with two Murphy beds (a queen and a single) that fold up and out of the way to open up the room. Off the hall is another new and stylish bath with double sinks and tub & shower.

NEW in 2015 is a third brand new bedroom on the ground floor with a single box bed with another single trundle that pulls out from under the first, and another full new bath with a 3' X 5' shower for a total of 3 beds and 3.5 baths.

Outside is a protected and fully walled stone patio, a safe place for kids, or anyone, to play. The cobblestoned driveway has parking for two cars and there are two air conditioning units, one upstairs and one downstairs.

For the full river experience, ask us about renting a Kayak or Stand-Up Paddleboard through Atlantic Vacation Homes. Put your watercraft in to the water directly in front of the house and paddle to Wingaersheek, or wherever the current or your whim takes you.

We had a lovely stay. The location with regards to the water views and sunsets is stunning. Access to the water is fine for kayaks and SUPs, limited/nonexistent if you have a bigger boat as there is no dock. The yard is small but tidy with lots of seating options and a fabulous deck. Not a good spot for kids to run around freely and Washington Street is busy. Care needs to be taken getting in and out of the driveway. The property is clean with an eye towards modern. Most of the furniture and fixtures seem to be IKEA or similar. The knobs on the otherwise new appearing Murphy beds were loose or broken and the walls near the showers were showing water damage that seemed remote from the water source (i.e. is there a leak in the wall?). It seemed mostly cosmetic, but I worry how it will stand the test of time, especially as a rental property. We felt well-supported by Atlantic Vacation Homes. We would recommend this property to the right friends with all of the above caveats. My family lives in Annisquam Village so we spent the majority of time enjoying the beach, water access, Yacht Club with them.

We loved our Summer at River Breezes, house was well kept, clean and location on River perfect. The only issue is parking is very limited and requires careful planning if you have any more than two cars even for dinner guest you need to move one care to allow for your guest to park. We would stay there again in a minute if parking conditions improve.

We chose this rental for the views, since my husband can't get around much. Views from the master bedroom, the main living area, and basement guest room were excellent. Bring good water shoes if you want to walk out into the view, since barefoot you'll be obsessed with watching for sharp things. The decor was unusually unoffensive. I like to cook and was looking forward to an open floor plan so I could socialize as well, but it's set up so you have your back to the view, and in a corner where you can't have the dishwasher open and put the dishes away easily at the same time! We enjoyed walking to the Willow rest for breakfast and lunch, and bringing home delicious bakery items.

The property was clean with modern furnishings. The open floor plan gave us plenty of space. Aside from the over abundance of fruit flies which were just a nuisance but not a problem, we had an amazing weekend. Thank you!

The house was perfect for us. It is beautiful and comfortable. We spent a lot of time on the deck just looking at the water, birds, sky, and boats. The sunsets were magnificent as were the stars.
Thank you for sending the items I left behind!

Absolutely lovely spot.

My sisters and a two friends had a wonderful time at this awesome house in Gloucester, Massachusetts. The house was extremely comfortable sleeping 5 of us and it could handle a few more. Having 3 1/2 bathrooms was ideal. There was nothing we wanted for and the accommodations were modern and very clean. I would highly recommend it and we might even return next year.

My family (three adults and three children) had a terrific time at the River Breezes Cottage. The house is beautiful and so is the location. We particularly enjoyed sunsets and watching the tides come in and out from the balcony. The newly added third bedroom is great, although it needs a cooling system (air conditioning, ceiling fan, etc.). Our family is already talking about coming back next year. The only complaint I have is with the management company, which had promised to leave a back up gas propane tank for the grill. When the propane tank ran out of gas (on the second day) after 6:00 pm, we were unable to grill dinner. A new tank was delivered the next day; however, it should have been there from the beginning. Overall, we were quite satisfied with everything.

We had a lovely stay at River Breezes. The high and low tides made for interesting views and the sunsets were gorgeous. We found the rental very well stocked and appreciated all the conveniences. Unfortunately, the downstairs bedroom has no air conditioning and even with a fan, our grandson was not comfortable. We didn't have access to a raft or dock, so swimming required our wading into some "mucky" grass. Of course Wingaersheek and Good Harbor beaches are very close by. The Willow Rest is within walking distance and we enjoyed walking into Annisquam along the little pedestrian bridge. All in all, very enjoyable.

My husband, two grown children and their spouses shared a wonderful 4 day weekend at the River Breezes Cottage. We enjoyed our stay very much - especially the view from the deck, which can also be enjoyed from the whole ground floor. The tides changing, the boating activity, the boats moored in the nearby coves, the beach across the channel, and the incredible sunsets provided atmosphere and entertainment all day long. The cottage was very comfortable with lovely, modern fixtures and decor.

We spent a total of 8 days and the actual experience largely surpassed our expectations based on the very enticing description provided by the owners . The location along with the view is breathtaking and changes constantly with the tides , access to the major beaches is not a problem , only a short drive . Kudos to the owners for a great set-up. Thanks to the entire AVH team .
