Just a few steps to the white sandy beach called ‘Long Beach’ and you will immediately be drawn to the gorgeous views of ‘Twin Lights’ (Lighthouses) and the rocky seashore that surrounds you.
Gloucester is a place to see, feel and experience history. The working waterfront and beauty have drawn fisherman, families, artists and visitors for hundreds of years.
Whale watching and fishing a must! Haddock, cod and tuna can be enjoyed from the Whale Watching and Deep Sea Fishing boats.
Lighthouses date from the 1780’s, and the historic downtown has over 75 restaurants serving all kinds of cuisine along with the ‘freshest’ of seafood.
Galleries, world class museums and the period architecture will enthrall you. Meet artists in America’s oldest working artist colony on nearby Rocky Neck. Come and experience Cape Ann!
‘Long Beach’ is a protected stretch of fabulous ocean and white sand, perfect for sunbathing, walking, shelling and even surfing! Great waves! A 1-2 minute walk!
From Long Beach, which is steps from the cottage, you can easily see ‘Twin Lights’ on Thatcher’s Island as shown in photo.
*’Good Harbor Beach’ (walking distance from the cottage) is a 1/2 mile long barrier beach with a rocky shore and a salt marsh which is protected by sand dunes. Small shrub covered rocky ‘Salt Island’ is accessible at low tide.
*These 2 beaches are nestled in secluded coves with white sand and stretch for miles. Everything is supplied for your beach vacation!
