About this listing
A the quiet neighborhood of Lanesville, we offer the third floor of our home exclusively to a group: individuals, couples or a family that are looking for a place to spread out with a large living room, and brand new kitchenette and private bathroom. We welcome visitors from all backgrounds/countries. We are half way between downtown Gloucester and Rockport, an ideal location. For single rooms, see our other listings - Cape Ann Guest and Retreat House- Gloucester and Rockport Rooms.
This newly remodeled, separate space on the entire third floor of our home has two bedrooms (double beds in each) and a large living room with distant ocean views. This large room, includes a new kitchenette (toaster oven, microwave and refrigerator- stocked with continental breakfast of bagels or muffins, coffee/tea and juice). A large table for board games, or working on computers is in the living room, as well as a Queen size, pull-out sleeper couch if needed for additional children. A brand new bathroom with tub/shower combination is located on this floor for your group's use only.
We have a large, fenced in backyard with chairs and granite picnic table (made by the Finnish Granite workers who once roomed here) for your use. A great space for children to play. (with adult supervision of course) or relax in our lawn chairs at the end of a full day. We have parking right in front of the house, with easy access in the front door and up the stairs to your accommodations.
Interaction with guests
We will be there to welcome you and tell you about the area, both the popular tourist spots and the out of the way, hidden gems. We are familiar with the history of both Rockport and Gloucester, and welcome your questions. We live here (on the fist floor) and and enjoy sharing our historic home, (the previous owner won a historic preservation award) and this beautiful part of world with others. Summer hospitality in homes is a long-standing tradition on Cape Ann. Judith's great, great, great aunt, on the Wonson side of her family, was the first person to open their home to summer visitors. Other relatives established Inns and a thriving fishing business in Gloucester.
Other things to note
We offer a discount to those in full time Peace and Justice work to provide a place to rest and nourish your soul through beautiful Cape Ann. This third floor space is also perfect for artists who may be coming to Cape Ann for a week long class, and need a space to call home base. We also welcome spiritual seekers on retreat and those engaged in any faith for renewal.
