This historic gem in Gloucester's coveted Annisquam village overlooks the glittering waters of the Annisquam River, Ipswich Bay and the Annisquam Yacht Club. This home is available to rent from October through the month of May. Since the view faces south, you can relax on the glorious wraparound porch and enjoy both sunset and sunrise over water, a rare privilege!

The best of all worlds, modern convenience and classic New England style, are combined. There are three bedrooms, a full dining room, lovely updated kitchen, four heating zones and a living room with a very efficient pellet stove which creates a cozy, well appointed home. You'll enjoy the verdant back yard with a patio for al fresco dining in privacy. Your rental includes rights to the private neighborhood Cambridge and Lighthouse beaches.

My several month stay could not have been more enjoyable. The property was just the right size with all the right amenities for comfort. The porch provided a great place to work, read or have a drink with family and friends while watching the boats come in from the ocean or those seeking out the sunset every evening. The property landscaping is beautifully maintained with many bunnies hopping around and birds chirping! There are so many wonderful places to explore while walking the Annisquam Village and Marina area. I will miss this place, but will have so many wonderful memories to take along with me!
