Car: Recommended

There are several whale watches operating out of downtown Gloucester as well as a harbor cruise and fishing charters. On the land side, there is a great walking food tour of the city run by Cape Ann Foodie tours. Rockport is a short drive away and home to artisan studios and quaint shops along bearskin neck.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: I grew up in Montreal, Canada and met my husband PJ while he visited Montreal. PJ grew up in Gloucester and has an intimate knowledge of the area having worked on local whale watches and Inns before going to college and accepting a commission in the U.S. Army. We now live north of Boston where he serves as a Firefighter and I as a Manager.

Why the Owner Chose Gloucester:
My family vacationed in the area for many years renting homes over the summer. When this property became available we immediately jumped on the chance to own a property across the street from our favorite beach. PJ owns a local business (Cape Ann Foodie Tours) and loves to showcase America's oldest working seaport and its culture.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The ability to walk to Good Harbor and not worry about the parking or congestion is worth it in itself. The size of the house and outside entertaining area are sure to make everyone happy.
