Sandpiper Cottage

Bedrooms 3 Bathrooms 2 Sleeps 8 Gloucester

Newly renovated in summer 2023! Situated at the crest of East Gloucester’s Good Harbor Beach and Bass Rocks neighborhood, Sandpiper Cottage offers distant, breathtaking views of the beach and greens across the lively (private) Bass Rocks Golf Club.

You can see the ocean from the main living areas, outdoor spaces, and upstairs. Decorated with a European cottage sensibility, the home is sunny, comfortable, and cheerful, with hardwood floors throughout. Recently renovated, the home has updated heating and central AC.

The first floor offers a new open floor plan kitchen, dining area, and fireplaced living area. Perfect for after a day out or for staying in. From the kitchen, a lush backyard gives you a feeling of being away from it all.

A fully updated shower/tub bathroom and laundry are adjacent to the primary bedroom, which has a king bed; this offers one-floor living for guests who prefer that arrangement. You can access the second floor via the front hall staircase from the living room and entryway. The two bedrooms upstairs have a queen bed in one and a full and twin in the other and share a cozy full shower bathroom. The garden level provides informal getaway space that includes a den with two daybeds and a couch, and an extra games area with a ping pong table and pinball machine. This level conveniently exits to the driveway area.

Spend your summer vacation relaxing, discovering local flora and fauna like beach roses, shell hunting, and swimming to your heart’s content. A short shady walk takes you to the spectacular Good Harbor Beach where you can swim, beach walk, and enjoy the scenery. The stunning and picturesque rocky coastline of Bass Rocks is just a short walk too with wonderful sidewalks and places for fishing, painting, sunbathing, and breakfast. Downtown Gloucester and Rockport are a short drive away, making this home a convenient and comfortable Cape Ann getaway.

2,200+ SF. Dogs allowed. No smoking. No events or parties.

by Grace

We had a family trip planned for Gloucester and Salem! We had an amazing time and the house we stayed in was perfect. It was clean and cozy! The beds were super comfortable and we all the loved the view from the kitchen. It had everything we needed and we had some fun playing ping pong. It was a great stay!
