Located in beautiful Magnolia village of Gloucester, Strawberry Cove is a quiet magical private way canopied with trees, lush with flora. One house between us and ocean. Close to Gloucester shops and restaurants, famous beautiful Gloucester beaches, a walking distance to famous "Shore Road" leading to Magnolia Beach, a 20 minute ride to famous "Rockport" and Bearskin Neck. A 750 ' in law on first level, it's naturally cool in the summer. Pet policy contingent on approval on a case by case basis.

The space

A plate of hand dipped, dark chocolate coated strawberries awaits your arrival! The kitchen is equipped with a mini fridge, a toaster oven, a stove top burner, a keurig machine, and a microwave.
There are raincoats and umbrellas for your use during rainy weather.
Many brochures on local activities and restaurants.
Mini ironing board and iron.
Beach chairs and beach blankets, and small picnic coolers.
Outdoor chairs if you want to sip your coffee outdoors, listen to the birdsong and watch the squirrels play.
Reading materials including magazines and books in the reading corner.
A dehumidifier for those lazy hazy humid days in August.
WORTHY TO NOTE: on a dead end street! No traffic!

* after guests very kindly made us aware that our wi-fi was not adequately covering the whole apartment space, we resolved the issue by adding an extender. When you book you will then have access to your network name and password.

Guest access

You'll have full use of the in-law apartment downstairs. It's YOUR home for the duration of your stay. Get to your private entrance by walking along the path in front of the property-just follow the slate stones to the left of the front door to the house.

Interaction with guests

We will be available to greet the majority of our guests, just to say a quick hello, give you a brief orientation to your space, and answer any questions you might have. If we aren't available we will make other arrangements with you beforehand. We will provide you with our cell phone numbers so you can text us with any questions if we aren't on the property. We will completely respect your privacy, and won't be knocking at your door while you stay here. We do encourage you to please knock on our front door as often as you need with questions, for advice, or any other needs we might be able to assist you with ! It's our pleasure, we love it here and want you to love it too. :)

Other things to note

We own a 6 year old mellow and quiet black female lab named ANNA who ALWAYS stays with us in our part of the home, does not roam the property freely, and is about the sweetest canine you would ever meet. She never is allowed in the apartment even when there are no guests. You MIGHT hear her bark once or twice when she hears you drive up...she's just letting us know you are here. After that, she's not a barker. You will meet her only if you insist!
Also, the ocean can't be viewed from the perspective of your apartment, only from the second and third floors of the property.

We spent a week in Mel and Curt’s place. Strawberry Cove is one of the best B&Bs we have ever stayed in, not only because of the beautiful village itself but also the hospitality from Mel and Curt. The place was a home away from home. We felt cosy and relaxed after some long excursions around the area. There are plenty of restaurants within 20 minutes driving distance but you can also use the kitchen if you prefer. Regardless, Mel and Curt filled the place with an abundance of food for breakfast and snacks. All in all, we enjoyed our stay and have no problem recommending this to anyone. All the best to Mel and Curt!

While my daughter and I were traveling New England we booked almost all Airbnb. This was our favorite! Curt and Melody are exceptional hosts and the living arrangement is cozy and very comfortable. The bed was like heaven and Melody stocks the kitchen as if you are not ever going out. This is a "must do" if you are looking for lodging. If I could I would give them 10 stars. BTW the walks close by along the ocean are amazing!!

Melody and Curt are perfect hosts - warm, welcoming, and helpful, yet not at all intrusive. The location is on a lovely, quiet, tree-lined street. There's a spectacular chasm a short walk away. The apartment is generous in size, attractive, well-stocked with thoughtful extras and very comfortable. We loved our stay and expect to return again next September.

We are a married retired couple who own a beautiful home in lovely Magnolia, a village of Gloucester, MA. I recently retired from a career in medicine at a large teaching hospital in Boston. Curt spent his career running his own business, and traveling overseas especially in the orient. We have 6 grand children that we adore, and a sweet mellow black lab (our Anna) that we hike with regularly at Ravenswood which is just up the road. We are thrilled to be in these sweetest of our golden years, such a beautiful season of life, and able to share the blessings of living in this unique historic maritime paradise with others!
