Description

Perched overlooking Wonson Cove’s prismatic waters, this 4 bedroom, 2.5 bath vacation rental home situated in Gloucester’s cultural district known as Rocky Neck will take your breath away. From Eastern Point to the Dog Bar Breakwater, from lighthouses to glorious sunrises, the views from Wonson Cove will leave you captivated by the beauty of Cape Ann. Make sure that you get to experience “magic hour,” or the ethereal twilight that occurs directly before the sunset, at least once during your stay at Wonson Cove. You will be entranced!
For times when the weather is not cooperating, simply soak in the gorgeous views from the large, glass-enclosed year-round porch.

Wonson Cove’s main floor consists of a cozy living room, a formal dining room, an eat-in kitchen, a full bathroom, a laundry area, and a ground-floor queen bedroom with access via French doors to a private garden overlooking the harbor. The second floor features three additional bedrooms (2 with queens, 1 with a queen AND 2 twins) as well as a brand new full and additional half bath.

Easily stroll down to Rocky Neck’s delicious restaurants and its culturally vibrant shops and art galleries. Rocky Neck features a wealth of coves and beaches ideal for launching all matter of water craft or yourself. For those who prefer larger beaches, Niles Beach is only a mile away.

If you appreciate the arts, and you plan on staying at Wonson Cove, we suggest that you bring a camera, easel, or another creative medium, as Rocky Neck contains every essential element needed to inspire your artistic side.

A fun 2 weeks in a relaxed setting. Great views. Fun watching the tide go in & out from the porch. Room for a crowd. Big dining room table for a big family and large zigsaw puzzles. An easy walk to a couple of restaurants. To get to the beach there's a short tricky walk over rocks that are slick & seaweed covered (we carried the kids over), except at highest tide. The beach & water is wonderful & full of romping dogs & friendly owners.

Great stay! Perfect Accomodations!

Our stay at Wonson Cove was perfect! The property is in a great location, on a small cove, walking distance to Rocky Neck galleries and restaurants, a 5 minute drive to Gloucester, a 10 minutes to rockport! The house and the yard were very clean and kept up nicely.The owners have really thought of everything the renters may need. Kitchen was well stocked. The sunroom on the back of the house is wonderful and a great place for a family or group to hang out, along with the deck out back. This is an old house but upgades have been. Even the towels were big and no rough, hard to come by in rental units! AVH responded quickly to all of our requests!
My only warning is that the stairs in the house are steep, so if you have guests that will have trouble make sure they take the downstairs bedroom.
Overall great stay!!

Our 3-generation family of 10, including kids and teens, had a great one-week vacation at Wonson Cove. The accommodations were comfortable, clean, roomy, well supplied, and the two small issues we had were promptly resolved by your gracious staff. Our week was hot, and we had taken a chance renting a house with no air conditioning, it we did fine. The promised off-water evening breeze always showed up, and we slept with fans and cross/breezes under blankets. Kids loved the private beach and the rented paddleboards. We cooked lobsters with all the equipment right there. Put together 10 puzzles (found in the closet) on the dining room table !In summary, took a chance booking a place 1500 miles from home off an internet site and were grandly rewarded. Thank you, AVH

This property was incredible! The layout of the house utilized the space wonderfully and it comfortably slept 10 people without feeling on top of one another. The back porch would have allowed us to still enjoy the view had the weather been uncooperative, but since it was gorgeous the entire weekend, we spent little time in the house. The back yard and picnic table served as our homebase as we enjoyed the sun and view from this gorgeous property.

The kitchen was stocked with plenty of serving trays and bowls so that was great. The location of this property also makes it a great choice. We were able to walk to dinner (The Studio; unfortunately, very slow service) and breakfast (Last Stop; sandwiches to go that were tasty!) very quickly.

The neighbors were super inviting and kind as well, which made the stay even more enjoyable.

Additionally the house allows you to see the major swing in tides. When we'd wake up, we could walk out to the water and by the end of the day, we'd be swimming back. It was fantastic.

Atlantic Vacation Homes was incredible to rent through. Their prompt response to our questions made the booking process seamless and the app allowed us to have any information we may have needed right from our phones.

One of the guests said this was one of the "best rentals she's stayed in" and I can't disagree. We have already been talking about when we can return!

The vacation would be perfect if we did nothing but watch the water change hour by hour, tides in and out, seagulls quarrelling, cormorants unfurling their wings to fly. Quiet private time at the shore. But there was so much more. Walks to Niles Beach and Eastern Point. Hours at Good Harbor. Watching artists with their easels on the corner. The many galleries, restaurants, even first class theater only steps away from our very quiet retreat. Steve Connolly's for the freshest local seafood to take home for our lobster boil. Can't wait for next year..

We had a very good experience at this house for our one-week vacation. The property is well kept and the view from the sunroom was wonderful. We liked how there was a full dining table and enough seating for our group both in the dining room and in the sunroom. There were plenty of towels and other amenities too. The property is a close walk to an adorable ice cream shop. I wish we had realized that there were fans in the closet for us to use; we did not notice the fans until a couple of nights into the hot weather. It would have also been nice if they had a newer bbq grill that we could use in the large yard rather than an older bbq in the small side yard. Overall we had a great stay and hope to return in future years!

Excellent walks to Eastern Point lighthouse, Beauport, or simply neighborhoods. Photographers delight. The property can handle a crowd very comfortably. Resident neighbors are lovely folks. Owner is always available for help if needed. Bring a sun canopy to enjoy the sunny deck and yard even more.

As usual, our stay in Rocky Neck was teriffic. It is the highlight of our summer for the whole family. wonson cove never disappoints us. Al Alie popped by to ensure everything was going well for us. I might suggest a few extra recycle bins for people staying more than a week. The house was still being cleaned when we arrived at 3:00 because previous renters did not do any washes. The cleaning girls were great and let us put our bags in the bedrooms that had already been cleaned. They were working like horses when we arrived . Koodos to them. See you next summer. Thanks

What a great vacation! This house was just perfect for our family - it can be difficult to find a home that is fun for the kids as well (we have a 3 year old and a 1 year old). A generously sized, safely fenced back yard that overlooks a beautiful cove was just perfect for our kids to play outside. The sun room was a great place for them to play while mom and dad had their morning coffee, too.

We would have loved to have access to a more secure gate for the top of the stairs, though (there are two very steep staircases), but this wouldn't be a problem for older children. We had the kids sleep in the nice first floor bedroom to avoid any accidents because we weren't comfortable with the gate. This bedroom would also be very nice for someone who can't handle stairs well.

We'll be coming back next year - we are so happy with the house and can't believe we found such a great house on our first try!

Thank you again!

Outstanding waterfront property: quite beautiful and peaceful yet easy walk to shops and restaurants.

The older home is perfect for a family and guests. Note that stairs to second floor bedrooms are quite steep which could be challenging to young children and those with mobility issues. The many windows allow for lovely cross breezes, but many are difficult to open -- could use a little maintenance work there. The owner dropped by and was wonderfully helpful and thoughtful. Thanks for another terrific stay; we'll be back next year.

Third year here, better than ever at property with it all: beautiful peaceful waterfront just steps away from Rocky Neck galleries, restaurants, theater, more. Owner and AVH always there for every need. Guests love visiting. Very minor points: deck chairs are going, and some aggressive weeding wouldn't hurt.

What a location!

My family has been traveling to Gloucester for over 60 years. Wonson Cove gave me the opportunity to see a section of the city that I wasent familiar with. Rocky Neck was amazing. We dined at The Rudder and Madfish Grill, both were fantastic. The house itself was great. It had plenty of bed space, enough room to accomdate our guests, a very nice kitchen and dinning room and a sun room with a beautiful view. We spend much of our vacation outside in the front lawn overlooking Gloucester Harbor. We swam in the sandy bottom ocean, fished and walked around the cove at low tide. I would reccomend this house without question to any family or group looking for a quiet setting on the ocean with enough room to comfortably enjoy your stay!
