Ships Bell: Water views, fantastic sunsets & a swimming quarry

Located in: Gloucester
You can have it all with Ships Bell House, as this immaculate 3 bedroom/ 2 full bath vacation rental home enjoys amazing water views, including fantastic sunsets. The home has the added bonus of a pass to swim at the fresh water swimming quarry which is the neighborhood's private and pristine swimming area. The quarry is just at the end of the quiet lane, and has an extraordinary oceanfront setting. There is also a shared grassy area at the quarry and ocean's edge, as well as the waterfront rocks which are the perfect place to share a picnic, or toast the incredible sunsets over the quarry and sea.

One can also enjoy the setting of the sun and water views from inside the air conditioned house or from the huge wraparound deck (with plenty of seating for outdoor dining or lounging). The main floor, with its open plan, is bright and welcoming and contains living, dining and kitchen areas. The kitchen is updated and fully applianced with a gas range, dishwasher, and microwave. Completing this floor is the office area on the other side of the living room, which would be a great place to work (if you must) or have a quiet read. The master queen and twin bedrooms flank a new full bath in the hall with a tub and shower.

The lower level of the home offers another queen bedroom suite, complete with sitting area and full bath. In the adjacent utility room is the full sized laundry area. Outside are manicured gardens, spacious lawn and an outdoor shower, all on a quiet neighborhood lane.

The village of Lanesville is a short walk from the house, along with the working fishing and lobstering port of Lanes Cove. A bit farther down the road (about 6/10 of a mile) is the public beach of Plum Cove which is a great place for the smaller members of the family as the surf is always calm and there are an abundance of hermit crabs to chase. Come to Ships Bell House to get away and enjoy summer's natural attractions and activities, or choose to visit the neighboring communities of Rockport and Gloucester that offer many cultural pursuits with restaurants, galleries and shops. The amazing Halibut State Park is a short drive away. Boston and Salem are less than an hour by train or car. Endless possibilities await you!
