A vacation beach house does not immediately come to mind when thinking about Cape Ann as the availability of beaches are limited as well as houses on those beaches. There are waterfront vacation homes for rent that are close to several amazing beaches. Good Harbor Beach is one of the coolest. Not just the beach itself, but the water is very cool even at the height of the summer. So perfect for those sizzling hot days in August. At low tide, there's a really long, gradual slope into the water, so if you don?t want to go all the way in, it's great to just feel the waves lapping at your feel. It's called "Good" Harbor for a good reason.
Whether you want a vacation house rental close to a beach, on the waterfront or a seaside rental with an amazing 360 degree ocean view, there is something for all preferences and budgets in the Gloucester area.
Cape Ann has some of the most picturesque shorelines in the Northeast. Some would go so far as to say it's the most scenic among the entire eastern seaboard. Rockport, Massachusetts is the home of "Motif No. 1" painting, said to be the most photographed and painted scene in America. Take in the true culture of Gloucester and watch the Lobster boats come in at the end of the day. The movie about the fishing boat, "The Andrea Gail"; The Perfect Storm (starring George Clooney and Mark Wahlberg) and the National Geographic Channel show "Wicked Tuna" was filmed in Gloucester.
One could spend days exploring Cape Ann: tasting fresh lobster from Fisherman's Wharf exploring the Stage Fort Park - the historic site of Gloucester's first settlers in 1623 and of course spending time at the beach; Cressy's Beach, Good Harbor Beach, Wingaersheek Beach and Cressy Beach to name a few.
