Description

This delightful vacation rental cottage is located on a quiet Rockport lane less than 100 yards from the sands of Cape Hedge Beach. Just cross the lane and walk over the footbridge and you're on the beach!

This cozy two bedroom beach house is pine-paneled, in the traditional summer cottage style. The kitchen is simple, but has all the necessities. The comfortable living room, where you can wind down after a day at the beach, has a beautiful ornamental fireplace.

Both bedrooms have air conditioning. The front queen bedroom has peekaboo views of the ocean and the back bedroom is furnished with two twin beds. The full bathroom (with stand-up shower) completes the home.

The grounds of the property are classic Cape Ann, including views of the sea and rugged granite boulders that grace the yard. A picnic table under the trees is situated so that even the most casual meals have an ocean view. After a day at the beach, enjoy rinsing off in the outdoor shower that has both hot and cold water.

There is parking for two cars at Captain's Cottage.

The location of this property was the premier factor!
The cable television subscription is very limited for channel selections and should be upgraded.
The bathroom shower head should be replaced as the outside shower was much better! Living room furniture needs to be upgraded.
Kitchen was well stocked along with linens.
We would stay here aaain with some upgrades!

Lovely views, beautiful landscaping and a wonderful outdoor shower help make the week a wonderful experience. We had a few beautiful beach days as well as experienced our first whale watching. There are a few issues with the Captain's Cottage house itself however they were a minor distraction in a wonderful week.

Our experience with Atlantic Vacation Homes was absolutely Fantastic! The property is secluded and private, the outdoor shower is wonderful and the view is great! The home had everything we needed and more we are definitely coming back! Atlantic Vacation homes even referred us to a company in which we rented a crib and stroller to save room in our car. They worked out the drop off and pick up without even involving us! What a Great week we had as a family thoroughly enjoyed our stay!!!

very good

We had a wonderful week at the Captain's Cottage with our 1 year old. The house is a few steps from a sandy beach, and has amazing views - you can see the ocean and the marshes behind the dunes. Amazing sunsets and sunrises! Everything we needed was in the cottage including some books and games, and it was nicely decorated and done up. There were a few other houses around but the cottage was private and tucked away in the trees. The leaves changed as we were there, so every day we saw a new view. Magical. Rockport and Gloucester were both a 5 minute drive away and were really fun to walk around in. For crib rentals we used BabysAGo and AVH coordinated with them so that the crib and high chair were there when we arrived. A wonderful holiday that we are likely to repeat!

We've rented two charming houses with Atlantic Vacation homes on two different holidays and have been very pleased with the super responsive staff and excellent customer service. The Captain's Cottage is a quaint gem tucked away from the road and steps from the beach. The accommadations are simple yet charming. The waves crashing on the beach lulled us to sleep at night and we awoke to gorgeous sun rises. We enjoyed the cottage, even when it rained. Cape Hedge Beach was a little rocky at high tide but it was also only a short walk from sandy Long Beach. Rockport and Gloucester are both short drives and have plenty shopping and things to do for the kids. A big plus was having wirless internet service too. Ask for Richardson's Icecream at the Local Icecream Stores and the Gloucester Movie Theater. Mint Paddy frozen yogurt is the best flavor ever!

The two single beds are really not comfortable, part of the bed linen was not clean. It should have more ventilation fan ( one by piece). Location is really good.

Thank you so much for your comments. The owner has replaced the mattresses in question, so now all the mattresses in the house are new, and there are fans in every room of the house. We appreciate your constructive criticism and the owner was happy to mitigate these issues.

Rustic rental on Cape Hedge beach

We enjoyed the view from the property as well as the proximity to Cape Hedge Beach. The cottage has a nice sunroom-mudroom that seems to be a recent addition. The rest of the cottage is very rustic but clean. The queen bed needs to be changed as it is very lumpy and a coat of paint to seal up the old pine panelling would reduce the musty smell throughout the cottage. Overall a nice rental that could use a little refresh that would go a long way to improving the level of satisfaction of the stay. As always, we are extremely satisfied with the level of attention and service offered by the AVH staff. Thanks.

Thanks for providing us this feedback, Stephanie. You brought to attention suggestions that will help us improve this rental for future guests. We hope you will choose to return to Cape Ann next summer!

This property was absolutely adorable! Very well maintained it offered all of the conveniences of home with a much better view! The beds were comfortable, the amount of space was perfect, and we very pleased with all of the amenities offered! (towels, beach chairs, umbrellas, spices, kitchenware - it's the little things for us!) The location was very easy to get to, and close to everything we could possibly need! Adirondack Vacation Homes could not have been easier to work with and we absolutely loved the special welcoming touch from the owner himself! Overall we had a wonderful stay! Thank you to all involved!

Very Nice location... quiet and secluded. Cottage has some nice features but a bit musty. Shower is small. Installing a laundry would be very good addition to property. Not enough bath towels for a weeks stay. Overall a good place to stay.
Manager response on 2010-07-28 - Response from AVH Realty Inc
We are gratified that you enjoyed Captains Cottage. This is a "summer only" cottage and you were our first guests of the season. Since the house is closed for the winter, there may have been a bit of lingering mustiness, but that has dissipated with the fresh air and breezes of Cape Ann. The owner has provided more towels and would love to put in laundry facilities but cannot due to the septic system. Thank you for your comments and we do hope that we can help you again with your visit to Cape Ann.

I think you need new interim cleaners; closets moldy smell, dead bug in bureau drawer; cobwebs on ceilings; futon cover not clean, carpets ragged, etc.
