This delightful pine-paneled cottage is located on a quiet Rockport lane less than 100 yards from the sands of Cape Hedge Beach. From its sun room/sleeping porch, you can enjoy views of the Atlantic or walk across the private footbridge to the beach. This cozy two bedroom cottage has a simple kitchen, a living room with fireplace, and a nicely renovated bathroom with shower. The newest addition is an outside shower stall with hot & cold water to wash off that beach sand. There's a small, lawned outside picnic area with lovely water views, but the rest of the property is classic Cape Ann: boulder-strewn granite! Parking for two cars.

Property Reviews 
Location Location Location
Stephanie C. from Sherbrooke, Quebec, CANADA recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in July, 2013
We have rented for two years now and we love the location on Cape Hedge Beach. The biggest drawback is the queen bed that needs to be replaced as there is no lower back support...we're not sure we'll rent a third year unless the mattress is changed. Location is great but not having a sore back for a week is more important. Other than that the view from the picnic table is great and we really appreciated the addition of the gas grill. The cottage is rustic but fairly clean...kitchen cabinets and drawers could use a spring cleaning...and the cottage would be a great rental with a new queen mattress.

Rustic rental on Cape Hedge beach
A guest from Sherbrooke, Quebec, CANADA recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in July, 2012
We enjoyed the view from the property as well as the proximity to Cape Hedge Beach. The cottage has a nice sunroom-mudroom that seems to be a recent addition. The rest of the cottage is very rustic but clean. The queen bed needs to be changed as it is very lumpy and a coat of paint to seal up the old pine panelling would reduce the musty smell throughout the cottage. Overall a nice rental that could use a little refresh that would go a long way to improving the level of satisfaction of the stay. As always, we are extremely satisfied with the level of attention and service offered by the AVH staff. Thanks.

Thank you so much for your comments. The owner has replaced the mattresses in question, so now all the mattresses in the house are new, and there are fans in every room of the house. We appreciate your constructive criticism and the owner was happy to mitigate these issues.

Charming House Near the Beach
A guest from Annandale, VA recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in August, 2010
We've rented two charming houses with Atlantic Vacation homes on two different holidays and have been very pleased with the super responsive staff and excellent customer service. The Captain's Cottage is a quaint gem tucked away from the road and steps from the beach. The accommadations are simple yet charming. The waves crashing on the beach lulled us to sleep at night and we awoke to gorgeous sun rises. We enjoyed the cottage, even when it rained. Cape Hedge Beach was a little rocky at high tide but it was also only a short walk from sandy Long Beach. Rockport and Gloucester are both short drives and have plenty shopping and things to do for the kids. A big plus was having wirless internet service too. Ask for Richardson's Icecream at the Local Icecream Stores and the Gloucester Movie Theater. Mint Paddy frozen yogurt is the best flavor ever!

A wonderful location, but needs updating to warrant price. Basic cable TV not adequate; refrigerator needs leveling; otherwise, a lovely place.

Captian's Cottage June 2010
Donald B. from Central City, KY recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in June, 2010
Very Nice location... quiet and secluded. Cottage has some nice features but a bit musty. Shower is small. Installing a laundry would be very good addition to property. Not enough bath towels for a weeks stay. Overall a good place to stay.

Property Manager Response:
Response from AVH Realty Inc
We are gratified that you enjoyed Captains Cottage. This is a "summer only" cottage and you were our first guests of the season. Since the house is closed for the winter, there may have been a bit of lingering mustiness, but that has dissipated with the fresh air and breezes of Cape Ann. The owner has provided more towels and would love to put in laundry facilities but cannot due to the septic system. Thank you for your comments and we do hope that we can help you again with your visit to Cape Ann.
