Imagine a summer of bliss, swimming from the dock at high tide, or from the sandy beach at low tide, when you stay at Annisquam Singing Pines. Or easily paddle to one of the nearby islands or to Wingaersheek Beach for a day in the sand and surf.

Annisquam Singing Pines is situated on over an acre of waterfront land and has lovely gathering spaces both inside and out. It was built as the waterfront vacation home of Governor Bates, who was the governor of Massachusetts at the turn of the 20th century.

On the huge lawn, you can have a friendly game of football or croquet (in the spirit of the era of the house), or sit in the shade on one of the screened or open porches and watch the river flow by. There are several peaceful spots around the property for guests to enjoy the lively boat activity on the river and take in the breathtaking sunsets. For the full river experience, ask us about renting a Kayak or Stand-Up Paddleboard through Atlantic Vacation Homes.
