A Wonderful Stay in Gloucester

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this apartment in early June. The owner, Brian, was a great host. He was always available if needed. Brian told us about a number of tourist sites and restaurants that we might enjoy. His comments were very helpful. We loved the beautiful apartment-gourmet kitchen, wonderful living room, bedroom and the very airy dining room. There are numerous eclectic touches in each room. You could look out the dining room windows and enjoy seeing Smith Cove Harbor. It is a very picturesque sight. If you sit on the deck off the dining room you can easily relax in warm breezes and sunshine. The Stearns & Foster mattress was a definite plus. The apartment is very clean. It is just steps away from the Rocky Neck Art Colony. It is fun to walk there and check out the different shops that are available. We just loved our stay there.

Property exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

The house was lovingly updated; felt right at home; backyard is a private oasis with pretty gardens and ivy-covered wall. Deck is great place to begin and end your day. Light and airy.

It is well situated within Gloucester at the entrance to Rocky Neck. The Red Cottage is across the street on one side; the Rocky Neck Guesthouse (originally, The Pilgrim House) is across on the other. Renters in both integral in establishing and furthering the art scene, and founding the North Shore Art Association and other cultural societies.

Beautiful harbor views; great walking to Bass Rocks; generally convenient. Highly recommend, especially if you are interested in the history of Gloucester.

An Incredible Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was beautiful. Fully stocked, renovated kitchen. Gorgeous stainless steel appliances and hard wood floors. Perfect for a couple or a family with one small child. The area is fabulous too. It was our first time to Gloucester and we loved it. Beautiful beaches, state parks for hiking. Near Rockport which is a fun area to walk around.

Cape Ann has a wealth of creative artisans and Rocky Neck Art Colony is the oldest art colony in New England. Stroll two doors down to the Last Stop for fresh brewed coffees and home made muffins, baked fresh daily. We're also right next door to The Gloucester Stage Co., a well known theatre production company.
