    About this property

    Riverbank Oasis - Beautiful, Remodeled Home With Sweeping Water Views

    Vacation home in Gloucester with private pool and kitchen
    Lovingly remodeled with vintage details, our two bedroom home offers beautiful views and gardens, an in-ground pool, and a large lawn that rolls down to the Mill River, a picturesque estuary flowing into Ipswich Bay. Kayaks are available and Wingaersheek Beach is just a 20 minute paddle away. A king and double bed sleep 3-4 adults comfortably; an air bed and sofas are available but please be aware that more than 4 will begin to be crowded. Ask about our “Crows Nest” studio apartment next door. *Please note that summer bookings are accepted for weeklong stays, from Saturday to Saturday only (June through August)* GROUNDS & OUTDOOR GAMES Our 1,600 sq. ft. home has a small front yard with gardens and a large back yard that abuts the Mill River. The driveway has a basketball hoop. Just behind the house are 2 picnic tables and a gazebo with a table and chairs, charcoal and gas grills, plus infrared heating lamps that take away the chill in fall or spring. A few steps down from the gazebo is a large, unheated, in-ground pool with a diving board and slide (usually open Memorial Day weekend through September). Next to the house is a garage with a studio apartment upstairs (the “Crow’s Nest”) which is sometimes available through Airbnb. The riverbank, 200 feet behind the house, is a great place to sit quietly and take in the primitive beauty of the tidal river - or to get together to play yard games, grill over a fire, and climb up to the treehouse deck. The back yard offers many recreational possibilities for guests, depending on the season: - kayaks, paddle board, canoe - swimming in the river or pool - badminton - croquet - soccer goal & backstop - horseshoes - cornhole toss - sledding 1st FLOOR Features include: - mudroom entry with coat hooks & baskets, and a half bathroom - open kitchen with a chef quality gas range, Vitamix blender, Kitchenaid mixer, ample cooking and dining supplies, prep sink, peninsula seating for 4, and a wall-mounted 30” TV - small dining space adjacent to the kitchen that comfortably seats 6 (max. 8) - cozy sunroom with 2 sofas - parlor with a large sofa and a 55” TV (the wood stove is temporarily out of order) - a Baldwin console piano 2nd FLOOR Features include: - master bedroom with a king bed, a large closet, a 45” TV, sweeping views of the Mill River, a master bathroom with a bathtub (no shower) and a washer & dryer - 2nd bedroom with a double bed (smaller than a queen bed) and no TV - 2nd bathroom with a large walk-in shower with dual shower heads - both bedrooms have small desks INDOOR GAMES, TVs, WI-FI, MUSIC The house is stocked with a variety of board and card games for all ages. There are 3 televisions in the house: a large one in the parlor, a medium one in an armoire in the master bedroom, and a small one in the kitchen. All TVs have Xfinity and X1 dvrs, plus Amazon Fire Sticks or Roku, which make it easy to find content on your Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Hulu accounts, or from other sources. Wi-Fi is free and a password will be provided. The house has SONOS speakers downstairs and in both bedrooms, which make it easy to play music wirelessly from your smart phone or tablet (instructions in our House Manual). ADDITIONAL ACCOMMODATIONS In addition to the king bed and double bed, there is a queen size air bed and at least 2 sofas that can serve as beds. Please let us know if you plan to use any of these additional beds so we can provide sheets, blankets and pillows. Need more space? Please inquire about our “Crow’s Nest” apartment over the garage. Guest access Guests have access to the following: - all of the house, except for the basement - all of the yard and garden areas, except for the yard areas immediately adjacent to the rear and far sides of the garage apartment Interaction with guests Our goal is to make sure guests feel well cared for while fully respecting their privacy. When I’m traveling, our property assistant is available to help you with anything you need to be comfortable in the home - or to offer tips on what to do and where to eat. She has been a close friend for many years and knows our home and Gloucester well. Other things to note Please note that summer bookings are accepted for weeklong stays, from Saturday to Saturday only (June through August). If you are considering a stay of a week or longer, let us know if you would like to see the house before you book. We would be glad to arrange it.
