Way Point:In The Heart Of Historic Waterfront Essex - Essex, MA - North Shore
New in 2016! Life is a voyage, and Way Point is the perfect place to launch part of your voyage. Way Point is not only the name of this adorable two bedroom vacation rental apartment, it also refers to a nautical sailing term which means "a stop along the way, or a place to change course."
Enjoy air conditioned comfort in this second floor vacation rental apartment in the heart of the historic waterfront village of Essex. The apartment is above a very sweet gift shop called Sea Meadow Gifts (which may just have what you are looking for!). Way Point has a modern eat-in kitchen, a comfortable living room, a queen master bedroom and a second bedroom with bunk beds. The large full bathroom has a separate glassed enclosed shower and a nice bath tub for soaking. There is a stacked washer/drier unit near the lower level entrance. Outside enjoy your own private brick patio with seating for al fresco meals and a gas grill. The large grassy yard is yours to enjoy.
Just out the front door is the village with its many restaurants, antique shops and the natural beauty of the waterfront. The Essex River Town Landing with its public boat launch is very close by, if you want to bring your boat and trailer. (Or, ask us about renting a Kayak or Stand-Up Paddleboard through Atlantic Vacation Homes).
Once a major wooden shipbuilding capital, Essex is now a quaint but lively village with much to offer, and is an excellent home base for exploring Cape Ann. The fishing port of Gloucester is just to the east, and boasts the best beaches on Cape Ann, while Rockport is one of the most picturesque villages on the east coast. Manchester-by-the-Sea and Ipswich (home to Crane Beach and the Crane Estate) are both also just up the road, while Boston is an hour away by car or by train.
