For the adventurer, this home is a short swim away from Good Harbor Beach. Located on the edge of a scenic marsh, you can swim or paddle your rented kayak or SUP over to the beach. Enjoy the day on the sands and then either come back on the tide or cross over the foot bridge and walk home the conventional way-- by sidewalk! This is a perfect location for someone looking for a beach getaway.

A short stroll in one direction will take you over to scenic Bass Rocks. Or, if you are the designated cook, the supermarket, pharmacy and ice cream stores are all within a 5 minute walk. Downtown Gloucester with its museums, restaurants, whale watches and more is just a short drive away fallowing you to be close to the center of town while still being afforded the relaxation of a beach vacation. At the end of the day, whatever activity you choose, sit on your deck and enjoy the ocean breeze.

This is a truly magical location. The house backs onto a salt marsh, which gives you the feeling that your backyard is the Atlantic Ocean, while keeping the crowds at Good Harbor Beach far enough away that noise is never a problem. The beach is only a 5-minute walk, and pretty much everything else you would need on vacation (super market, liquor store, ice-cream stands) is likewise within a 5-minute walk. Downtown Gloucester, with its cornucopia of restaurants, bars, and cultural sites, is a 20-minute walk, or a 5-minute drive.

The interior of the house is lovely, with everything you need to feel at home. All the appliances are brand new. Karen, the landlord, is a wonderful person, and was super-responsive whenever I needed anything.

Two thumbs up!

It was sensational ... the home was perfect for our family of 6! The only thing that I can say was sort of a drag was having to pack everything up to walk to the.beach. It would have been great if we could walk across the marsh but with little ones that would not have worked. Other than that there was plenty of space the laundry appliances and kitchen gadgets were very convenient the bedrooms and living areas were clean and spacious it was just wonderful!

We loved our stay at GHE! The cottage was perfect for our 2 adult couples. It seemed to have been completely redone recently and was beautiful and comfortable. Sitting out back was delightful with the view of the ocean and waterway. We walked the 10 minute walk to the beach each night for happy hour. Also, when we called Atlantic rental about the umbrella that would not open, they responded the same day and fixed it! The temperature was in the upper 70's during our visit, so we did not miss air conditioning and the fans worked well.

Thanks for making this a wonderful vacation!

Yes! We would recommend this property. Very nice place, nicely decorated and clean. However, difficult to get out of driveway. Hedge is overgrown and difficult to see out. Keeping hedge narrower and cut shorter will help tremendously. Road is quite busy and hard to back out.

Thank you for your review and for letting us know about the maintenance issue with the hedges so that we were able to get that resolved. We are glad to hear that you had a great summer getaway at Good Harbor Escape!
