Dovecove House was built in 1836 and has been updated, respecting its origins. It sits on the road with a private terrace and hill gardens with hammock behind. The Annisquam Village and beach are a short walk across the Lobster Cove footbridge.
The single bedroom is located on the second floor, accessed by a staircase which is narrower and steeper than ones in modern houses.

Love, love, love my stay with Saira. She is extremely hospitable. She helped me with directions to her house, pointers for sightseeing and recommendations with restaurants. Not only that, I really enjoy my stay at Saira's cute little house. The location is excellent.

This was my second stay, and it was just as wonderful as the first. Saira's home is so relaxing and I love the private beach in walking distance. I always leave refreshed and recharged. I'm looking forward to my next stay.

Response from Saira:
Hello Rick - it was great to have hosted you, especially as you are familiar with Annisquam. I'm sorry the morning traffic disturbed you. My guests have always written that they find their stay here quiet and peaceful. Perhaps it might have been the extreme contrast between your having lived the last three years in Africa, very remotely, with only the sounds of the animals and nature. That is another world away and I appreciate your sharing your stories of that world with me. I will gladly welcome you back the next time you are visiting family and need a place to stay.

While there are two addresses, I suggest the parallel parking on Washington Street. The home and gardens are lovely, it's a great location, the bed was super comfortable, the entire upstairs is your domain and it's just quaint and lovely. Saira is super accommodating and a genuin…

Saira's home is magical! Close to the beach and the amazing Market restaurant. 10/10 would stay again.
