Enjoy the best sunsets on the East Coast from this classic riverfront Victorian summer retreat. Annisquam Singing Pines is situated on over an acre of waterfront land and has lovely gathering spaces both inside and out. It was built as an impressive yet casual vacation home to entertain the family and guests of Governor Bates (the governor of Massachusetts at the turn of the 20th century).
On the huge waterfront lawn, you can have a friendly game of football or croquet (in the spirit of the era of the house), or sit in the shade on one of the screened or open porches. There are several peaceful spots around the property for guests to enjoy the lively boat activity on the river and take in the amazing sunsets.
You can enjoy swimming from the dock (at high tide) or from the "beach" in front of the house at low tide. You are welcome to bring a non-motorized watercraft to launch from the beach or dock. With a kayak, you can paddle to one of the nearby islands or to Wingaersheek Beach for a day in the sand and surf. (For the full river experience, ask us about renting a Kayak or Stand-Up Paddleboard through Atlantic Vacation Homes).
