That's the moment you'll never forget when you stay in this charming vacation rental home in Gloucester's Lanesville neighborhood.

Ships Bell House is located on a quiet neighborhood lane, its manicured gardens and a spacious lawn adding to the tranquility. Relax in air-conditioned comfort inside the bright, open-plan space that is decorated in a cheerful beach-centric style with local flair. There are two bedrooms and a full bath on the main floor, as well as a queen suite with a full bath on the lower level.

In the garden, enjoy a nap in the hammock or cookout on the grill. After your swim at Plum Cove Beach or Lanes Cove, rinse off at Ships Bell's outdoor shower.

When you want to explore, head to nearby Plum Cove Beach, downtown Gloucester or nearby Rockport. The amazing Halibut State Park is a short drive away and Boston and Salem are less than an hour by train or car.
