The Hideout: Direct waterfront! Bring your boat or use the kayak provided!

Bring your boat (or use the kayak provided) or swim from the dock of this sweet little cottage. 3 Bedrooms comfortably sleep 4. Water views, ingenious use of space and cozy d├ęcor combine to give the feel of floating in a well-fitted vessel. A former fisherman's cottage on Walker Creek, the home now boasts a full kitchen, a screened porch with views, and a tidal dock (7 feet deep at high tide, dry at low), as well as the use of a 2 person kayak. The house is in a rural setting, so don't be surprised if you hear the crow and cluck of the chickens from a neighboring property. Drive 10 min. to Wingaersheek Beach, or explore by boat in Essex and Ipswich Bays and the surrounding creeks, marsh, and beaches; search for treasure in nearby Essex?s many antique shops, or cross the bridge into downtown Gloucester for a variety of restaurants, galleries, museums and maritime activities.

Property Reviews 
Depends on your travel style
A guest from Florence, MA recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in August, 2013
The house is VERY much like staying in a boat. So cute and the location is lovely. Quiet and beautiful light. But you need to be ok with it being VERY basic. The screens all need to be replace and if it is rainy out you are best to leave as it is quite musty. The shower is tiny. The windows are a bit unsafe, one fell out of the wall and shattered on the stairs in our sleep. The two single beds are in the windows which is so cool and my kids LOVED that but I worried a tiny bit that they would fall out since nothing was too sturdy. I personally loved it but you need to be comfortable with either boat or camping vacations to see its charm.

Grand Escape
Denise F. from Bolton, MA recommends this property.
Stayed for 21 days in August, 2012
We love the Hideout. Though it is only a 45 minute drive from our home we felt like we were far away; the private location, bird watching, kayaking, swimming, reading......what else could we need? The Hideout meets our needs, cozy/rustic charm.

Loved location, swimming, kayaking, view, general feel of Hideout
A guest from Great Barrington, MA recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in August, 2011
A few improvements could be made: get phone to work, fix holes in screens, replace light bulbs as needed, wi-fi would be great.

A truly special place
A guest from Bolton, MA recommends this property.
Stayed for 14 days in July, 2011
We loved the view, the privacy, even the rooster calls! The neighbors were helpful and even brought us fresh eggs and tomatoes. The Hideout was perfect for us, it has some quirks (curtains separate the bedrooms, 1 very small...) but that is what made it right for us. Take advantage of the Kayak! We brought binoculars, the birds are magnificant. We did not want to leave.

Thank you Denise for your review of the Hideout. It is a very special place, perhaps a bit too campy for some, but just right for others. It is located on a tributary of the Annisquam River and is very private and therefore quite the place to watch the wildlife! Let us know how we may assist you with next year's summer rental.

Great Location
Debra S. from Lynbrook, NY recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in July, 2010
I can't say enough about the location of the cabin. It was great. The view was awesome, and we kayaked several times from the property. The cabin is just that. A cabin. Bare basics. While it was clean, it's a little worn down, there was a smell that was bad enough to make us get air freshners, but from reading other comments, I expected. A little fixing up of the place would be a benefit, and some new pots and pans (the pasta pot was rusted).If you don't mind rustic, and can over look bugs and the sounds in the walls, I highly recommend this place for it's location and kayaking opportunities.

Response from AVH Realty Inc
We appreciate your review and have passed the comments on to the homeowner. The Hideout is a "camp" in the old-fashioned sense of the word, but you can't beat the views and being able to kayak right outside your door. Thanks and come back and see us next year, we have many properties in inventory and can accomodate your needs.

Quirky cabin in nice location
Sophie P. from Quebec, CN recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in August, 2008
The location is great (especially if you enjoy kayaking) and the view is very pretty but there are lots of mosquitoes and you'll wake up to the sounds of the chickens roaming freely on the grounds. It should be clear to anyone renting this property that this is more or less a "cabin". The shower could definitely be improved. All food should be stored in the plastic bins which are provided since there are small four-legged animals living in the walls/ceiling. Also, note that the master bedroom does not offer any privacy as it has no doors (only curtains) and another curtained opening into one of the other bedrooms. Nonetheless, the property has lots of "rustic charm" but I would only recommend it to someone who has a good sense of humour/adventure and doesn't mind the fact that everything is a bit eclectic and crooked.

Property Manager Response:
Thank you for taking the time to complete the satisfaction survey and for yourl comments. We are glad to know that your stay at The Hideout was satisfactory.

We loved the Hideout!
A guest from Montreal, CANADA recommends this property.
Stayed for 14 days in July, 2007
My family loved this wonderful cottage near the ocean; very cozy and efficient.
We enjoyed the peace and quiet (singing lobster notwithstanding!), swimming in
the river, kayaking, the view of the sunset and the birds. There are lots of things to do around: beaches (Crane Beach was our favorite), nice little towns,
museums, parks, Crane Estate, orchard, etc.

Stay at the hideout
Havilland H. from Leicestershire, UK recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in July, 2007
We stayed at the hideout for a week. The description on the internet was accurate - the hideout was a very simple property and was basic. It had the amenities expected. A few of the fly screens were coming loose but other than that the house was in satisfactory condition.
The location of the property was excellent and we spent a very pleasant week - making use of the Kayak to paddle down the river.
We only spoke to the Atlantic Vacation staff by phone. They were always polite and helpful.
There was one issue that caused a problem. The telephone number given for the propery was wrong. We received a number of calls obviously intended for someone else. My son tried to call a few times but ending up contacting someone else. Obviously this mistake should not have happened and did cause some inconvenience.
