Built in 1850's, renovated in 2016. It is charmingly New England with a sophisticated modern twist. Located across the street from the historic town hall on the salt marsh. Within a 5 minute walk to the Essex Marina, riverside dining and antiquing.

The space is light, airy and cozy with three skylights, two large windows for a cross breeze and a hand made large stained glass window that gives the dining room, living room and kitchen a warm glow. You are surrounded with 1850 pine wooden floors and wooded beams. Brand new linens, granite and always fresh flowers. The furniture is a mix of old and new to fit the style of the barn. No cleaning person is good enough for me to ensure the entire aptartment is spotless and fresh. The kitchen is stocked with everything you need to make your meals. There are nice spice options for your use along with a French press to make coffee. There is a new BBQ outside for you, beach chairs and towels in the summer months. Fresh soap and starter shampoo will await your arrival. A once a week laundry service, fresh sheets and towels and a refresher apartment clean is offered, complimentary if you are staying for a longer period of time. The couch in the living room folds down into a full bed and comes with a two inch feather mattress cover, fresh sheets and a clean white quilt. The sky lights can be blackened out and shades pulled to turn that room into a great bedroom. In the main bedroom the bed is so cozy...Quiet except for the sound of the Sunday morning church bells ringing near the river. Brunch on the river is calling...

When guests are in we keep the main driveway down to the barn as free as we can allowing you easy access and privacy. If you have boat you may be able to park it here, for a fee. The Barn was designed with you in mind and offers total privacy. There is a stair case going up to the top floor of the barn with a small private deck that can not be seen from our house. Once you are in the Barn most windows face in the direction away from the main house giving you the feeling of complete privacy. One window only faces our garden. If you would like access to Crane Beach, a sticker can be provided. The first floor of the barn has a brand new, very cool event space. There is a staircase going down to it from the top floor and can only be used as your second exit option for emergenies or if you are renting it for a party. The bottom floor will not be used while you are upstairs unless it is being used for you.

The hosts live in the main house on the property. They use their own entrance and garden area. The hosts likes to meet and greet you and give you a 5 minute tour, if she is available and if you are comfortable with this. If not, arrangements can certainly be made. She is always there for you via e-mail, phone or text during your stay. You may see our cat, Cheese, walking around. He had a brother Mac but no longer. He is white with pink ears and so freindly. He is not allowed in the Barn but do not be surpised to see him on your deck looking for a cuddle.

The "The Barn" is only one block from Essex's main street, river access and across the street from the historic town hall. Winthrop Street was home to famous shipbuilders back in the day and was a very desirable street to live on due to it's location by the water. We are two turns off Rt 128 which leads you to Boston or NH. We are located near many colleges. Locally - Woodman's famous fried clam resturant is within a 5 minute walk from the Barn along with local fresh fish resturants and some new trendy farm to table options, riverside. The Essex River Cruise is a must do. It is an hour and a half tour up the river and towards the Atlantic Ocean. If lucky you may see hundreds of birds, the wildlife of the great marsh the beauty of Crane estate, the sunset over the water.

Essex is in the heart of Cape Anne. It is a perfect place to spend a couple of days just to experience the town itself with all it's antique shops, riverside dining, boating, nature trails and history of small town life in America. If you want the barn to be home for a longer stay it is centrally located to Ipswich, Manchester by the Sea, Gloucester, Beverly, Hamilton, Wenham, Newburyport and Rockport. It is about 30 miles from the city of Boston with trains to take you there in the surrounding towns. We are right around the corner to Gordan College, Landmark school and Endicott College. Highway 128 is minutes away sending you North to Maine and New Hampshire.

There is one bedroom with a queen size bed in it. The bedroom opens into the hallway and the sliding barn door. In the living room there is a leather couch/futon that folds down into a full size sleeping area. It will sleep two children or one adult comfortably. Full bedding is available. We have great Wy-fi access and a large TV in the space along with a new AC and heating unit, new insulation making the space secure, solid and comfortable.

I have lived, worked and visited over 26 countries so far. Learning new perspectives and design through travel is my passion. I am currently raising a family on the shores of New England. My work background was in management in the hospitality/event industry. I worked with movie stars at the Hilton Park Lane, London through planning weddings and running inns/event venues. I am moving away from corporate now into small business of my own with a focus on hospitality, events and catering. I love adventure, forward motion, trying your best, giving your all, truth, a good laugh and great hugs.
