A delightful home situated in Gloucester's charming Bay View neighborhood, Annies Place radiates an aura of sun and warmth. Only an 8 minute walk to lovely Plum Cove Beach, Annies Place lets you spend your summer vacation relaxing, discovering local fauna such as hermit crabs, and swimming to your hearts content! In addition, Plum Cove Beach boasts one of the best views of the sunset in all of New England! When not enjoying the wonders of the sea, swing in the hammock in the verdant backyard or take a train into Boston, located only forty miles away. Enter the home through a small farmers porch, and step into the pleasantly bright and simple kitchen. Look around, and discover the sun-drenched open plan dining and living room. Additionally, on this level you will find a full bath with a shower and full laundry facilities. When you become sleepy from your day of exploration and discovery, climb the stairs and rest in one of three bedrooms located on the upper floor. Annies Place is the perfect choice to ensure that your family's getaway will be fondly remembered for years to come!

Property Reviews 
Annie' Winter Stay
Maryann & Glen L. from Gloucester, MA recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in November, 2014
We were in the middle of selling and buying our home and we needed to accomodate our family for a month.. Annie's and AVH has been great and flexible. It was an inviting place to stay during our transitition. We even took advantage of Plum Cove Beach on some of last fall warm days. Parking is tricky but we managed with two large cars!

Appliances
A guest from Boston, MA does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 3 days in August, 2013
Our stay was overall satisfactory outside of the much outdated appliances. The refrigerator didn't work well and leaked. The dishwasher was very loud and took a very long time to go through a cycle. The worst were the washer and the dryer especially; since we were expected to launder our linens and towels, we had to wait more than 2 extra hours on the morning of check out for this laundry to dry and it was still damp when we had to leave. :( This was a major inconvenience and I believe an issue that needs to be addressed.

Property Manager Response:
Response from AVH Realty Inc
Thank you for bringing these important concerns to our immediate attention. We, along with the homeowner, greatly appreciate the feedback.

We trust you had a good time overall, and regret that the issues you experienced with some of the appliances detracted from the enjoyment. We immediately addressed your concerns with the property manager and all issues have since been resolved.

We sincerely apologize that you and your family felt pressured to finish all the laundry on your last day of vacation. We do ask that guests start a load of laundry and do what they can, but this not meant to be onerous. We will make this distinction more clear in our new materials for the upcoming season.

We enjoyed having you on Cape Ann and look forward to the opportunity of renting to you next summer!

Best regards,
Susan Ray

Good time in Plum Cove
A guest from Farnham, QC does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 7 days in August, 2013
We had a good stayin this old house. Everything we needed was there and the proximity of a fishing pier was realy a good surprise for my son. Our only downer was the proximity of route 127 that Is extremely noisy and the risk you have to take everything time you have to leave or park at the house.

Property Manager Response:
Response from AVH Realty Inc
We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your vacation here, and we regret that the parking and busy street detracted from that enjoyment. We will continue to work with the homeowner to identify alternative parking solutions for the future.

Lovely home that comes with beautiful sunsets and a charming town
Kathy E. from Honeoye Falls, NY recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in August, 2013
We loved this house and the location was awesome. A quick walk to the beach for the most beautiful sunsets. Walk into Lanes Cove for coffee and great food at the local coffee shop. The home was spacious and very clean. Everything was well thought of as far as amenities for the house. Comfortable beds and living spaces. The beach towels and washer/dryer really made it all easy. AVH is very organized, and very attentive to their customers. I would defintley rent from AVH realty again. I am not sure how to rate location, as proximity to everything was EXCEPTIONAL, but at times a busy road and the driveway was an issue for us. The owner and AVH gave us alternatives that made it work fine for us. (Down the) street parking solved the problems. Wonderful week, thank you!

Lovely house
A guest from North Hampton, MA recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in August, 2012
Cape Ann is a great vacation destination. Crane Beach is gorgeous. Third bedroom a little small. The parking is tight, but we made do. A mirror across the street would be helpful. The house had everything we needed for a great vacation.

Annie's Place Summer Vacation
A guest from Hampton, NB recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in August, 2012
We really liked Annie's Place. The home had a great location. We could easily drive to the towns of Rockport or Gloucester. We were a group of 6 and this home suited us well. We liked the fact that we were not right in the middle of these towns but within easy reach. It was roomy enough and had a well stocked kitchen with all the utensils we needed. We also really liked all the open shelving in the dining room so that would could put all our food there. That made it so easy and convenient. The home was neat and clean and was awesome to have laundry and beach towels/toys. The only issue was the parking space as has been mentioned in other reviews. The driveway parking space is not big enough to put your car unless you have a small compact car. I really do think part of the back yard should be turned into a nice parking pad. Perhaps it could be made with granite as it seemed plentiful. As long as you have someone in your party waving you out to the street when no cars are coming you can get out of the driveway quite well. Thanks! Overall great place and would recommend!

A great family get away
Michelle C. from Wexford, PA recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in June, 2012
We loved our stay at Annie's Place at Plum Cove! The home is adorable and has all of the comforts of home. We were able to eat nice meals at the house, the kitchen had all of the cooking supplies we needed. Dishwasher and laundry soap were even available! The beach is a very easy walk and we were pleasantly surprised to find beach towels, beach toys and even a cooler! The one parking space is small but this small inconvience would not keep me from this lovely house in Gloucester.

Response from AVH Realty Inc
We are happy that you had a great time in Gloucester and we hope that you will return to "the island" again soon!

Super pleasant and feels like home.
Daniel G. from Val-dOr, Quebec recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in July, 2011
We felt like we were at home. Enough space and very well located near a nice beach. The only thing was the parking....very difficult and a bit dangerous. If we could use the parking on the grass up the alley! We'd like the beach at the walking distance and that was nice to scuba dive.

Response from AVH Realty Inc

Annie's Place 2008
Whitney T. from Boston, MA does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 7 days in August, 2008
A funky home, but a bit overpriced for what it was. Well-equipped for two families. Advice for future: place phone on do not call list for sales calls, leave details on what Gloucester recycles, provide nicer feeling sheets and better pillows. Plum Cove was great for kids. Great table linens, pretty decorative touches, nice yard.

Property Manager Response:
Thank you for taking the time to respond to the satisfaction survey and for your constructive comments. We are working on improving communications in regards to the recycling and your other advice will be passed on to the homeowners. Thank you again and we hope you will consider us again in the coming seasons.

a cute cottage
Patricia M. from San Jose, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in August, 2007
It was a very beautiful, quaint cottage. Plenty of room for the 5 of us. loved that beach stuff was included. it came in handy
The only issues we had was parking, didn't know the grill didn't work until someone came to fix it on the 4th day, and there was stagnant water in the left sink under a cover that we only could smell until I investigated. But that kind of stuff happens and it really was ok.

But it was the parking that was a bummer and being on a busy street which cars and trucks woke us up every morning. And that is why we probably would not come back.
