The owners Linda and Hank are really nice folks and very responsive.
We loved this cottage especially the deck and the living spaces are nicely decorated and very comfortable.

“Even the teenage boys asked to return to Summerwind”
Reviewed June 29, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We had such a great experience staying at Summerwind two years ago that we recently returned. With three teenage boys we found it extremely convenient to have boogie boards, beach chairs, towels and cooler all there for us to use. We took every chance we had to go to the beach, which is minutes away.

We had everything we needed to host family and friends for cookouts and lobster on a deck with a beautiful view of the harbor. We will return to Gloucester in years to come and hope to stay at Summerwind when we do.

“Exceeded our expectations”
Reviewed June 20, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Summerwind Cottage is an absolute jewel! We loved the beautiful, artistic decor, and our hosts, Linda and Hank are just the best. Linda's suggestions were all fantastic. We fell in love with Cape Ann and are already dreaming of returning.

“Best vacation rental i have ever had!”
Reviewed July 7, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

person found this review helpful

I have stayed in a dozen or so vacation rentals over the years, including several in the Cape Anne area, and this one was by far the best maintained, best outfitted, most comfortable and attractive of any. My husband and I stayed here with our children (10, 12, 17) while in town to sightsee and visit relatives. We especially enjoyed the roomy living areas, the modern kitchen, eating on the comfortable deck, and the easy access to Good Harbor Beach. The location is a good place to explore and enjoy on foot. The cottage has laundry machines in the basement, a gas stove, propane outdoor grill, reliable wifi, a supply of beach towels, and even a Scrabble game! The owners were extremely accommodating and helpful, both while coordinating our reservation and arrival, and in answering questions during our stay. This rental is ideal for a couple, small friends' group, or family with older children.

“Wonderful retreat away from the big city”

Have just spent a week at the cottage and it was was absolutely lovely. It is exactly like the pictures, beautifully decorated and very well equipped. The owners, Linda and Hank go out of their way to help you. There is lots to do in the area, chilling out on the beautiful beaches, whale watching, sightseeing and shopping in Rocky Neck, Rockport, Salem and Boston (only an hour away on the train). Gloucester has lots of good restaurants (would recommend Captain Carlo's and the Topside Grill). Will definitely return again to visit more of New England.
