You'll find river life at its best when you stay at this newly-built vacation rental home that sits along the banks of scenic Annisquam River in Gloucester. From the private patio, you will be mesmerized by spectacular sunsets and the parade of boats as they sail, motor, or paddle by.

Annisquam River Sunsets is a comfortable one-level and air-conditioned apartment designed for easy living. From the parking area, follow the short path down a small slope to the private waterfront entrance at the rear of the property. Inside, the cozy living room has plenty of seating and opens to the modern kitchen and dining area. Just off of the living area are two ample-sized bedrooms and a full bathroom. Please note that the friendly owners live in the separate upstairs unit.

There is plenty of outdoor space to relax and enjoy the summer breezes and take opportunities for al fresco dining. Swim in the river, kayak to sand bar, fish for stripers, dig for clams, or simply enjoy the tidal beach. This summer home has easy access to the highway and commuter rail for day trips, and is just a few miles away from Gloucester’s beautiful beaches, Good Harbor Beach and Wingaersheek Beach.

As a special offer for guests who book 7 or more nights at Annisquam River Sunsets, a complimentary catered lobster dinner can be arranged for the group.

Annisquam River Sunsets lives up to its name with a show most nights! The tidal river gives a unique and special experience of the natural world. The apartment is beautiful and convenient, with a well-equipped kitchen and views from all windows. The patio and outdoor space added to the spacious and enjoyment. The gardens are their own attraction! owners are wonderfully hospitable and friendly, but always respectful of privacy. A side note: there are stone steps from the path leading to the apartment entrance. We would definitely stay there again.

What a beautiful place! Jump right off the dock at high tide or enjoy the beach feel when it's low tide. Couldn't believe that I never got a single mosquito bite and there was no low tide smell - it must be magic! Owners live upstairs and were very attentive. Immaculate place. The only thing we could possibly say is that we wish the air conditioning came on a bit stronger at first, but there were fans and it was the perfect temp for our long weekend. Beautiful large kitchen to enjoy cooking, spacious bathroom, netflix and HBO on the TV...would love to go back!
