We are located directly on Lanes Cove, in the village of Lanesville. A coffee shop, convenience store, Plum Cove beach and a post office are all just a short walk away. Both of our rental properties offer spectacular views of sunset on the cove and Ipswich Bay beyond the granite wall. We have a private garden path leading directly to the cove where you can swim, paddle board, or launch a kayak or small boat. There is also a ramp for larger vessels a short walk away.

Quarry Walks & Historic Dogtown Visit abandoned granite quarries, nearby in Lanesville, and the cellar holes and carved rocks of historic Dogtown. Ask us for maps and directions.
Crane Beach on the Crane Estate is directly across the bay. This is a popular destination for our guests with kayaks or boats, but it's also a great trip by car. For hiking and birding, Halibut Point State Park is 1.5 miles away. We are happy to assist our guests in chartering sail boats or whale watching tours. For more casual local experiences, stroll around Rocky Neck art galleries and listen to sea shanties at a pub in downtown Gloucester.
