Experience river life at its best along the banks of Mill River when you stay at this spectacular waterfront rental home with exquisite water views, a large back yard, and a private tidal dock for swimming and kayaking. For the full river experience, ask us about renting a Kayak or Stand-Up Paddleboard through Atlantic Vacation Homes.

River Watch is a charming antique home sun-filled with natural light, and beautiful hardwood floors throughout. From the front door, enter the main living level that includes a large living room, a contemporary kitchen, a dining room, and a den with a glass sliding door accessing the back deck. The three bedrooms, a sitting room, and a full bath make up the third floor.

Enjoy the river views sitting on the back deck and or lounging in the back yard on the outdoor furniture. There is a gas grill to barbecue your favorite dish. You are welcome to bring a non-motorized watercraft to launch from the beach or dock.

Situated in Gloucester's Riverdale neighborhood, the location is ideal to explore the villages of Annisquam and Lanesville. It's a short drive to Downtown Gloucester and Rockport and Good Harbor Beach. Travel to Boston, Salem, and Beverly is easy with the close proximity to Route 128 and the commuter rail for day trips.

August 26, 2023 - Airbnb

by Susan

This home was in a beautiful location and easy to get to lots of wonderful area attractions! Beautiful views from windows and deck. The kitchen and bathrooms were pristine. Stairway up from the kitchen to second floor is not for people with impaired mobility.
