Owner info

Year Purchased: 1986

About the owner: Built in 1986 as an 8 stall carriage house, Misselthwaite Manor was remodeled into a 4 bedroom residence, reminiscent of an english manor home complete with exposed beams, raised paneling, Count Rumford fireplace and many authentic amenities of the time. With its tiled floors and unique wallpapered baths, fashioned after an english country manor home, each room is just a little bit different in decor.

Why the Owner Chose Gloucester:
Eastern Point is a special place, a private peninsula surrounded by the sea and wooded walking paths to the ocean, a light house and rugged open ocean back shore, all from our door. There are many cozy beaches nearby, as well as Good Harbor Beach, one of the most beautiful beaches in New England. A short bike or car ride brings you to the Historic Rocky Neck Art Colony with its many restaurants and working artists, or to downtown with its winding streets, shops, restaurants and cozy nooks and crannies of this quaint fishing town. Go Whale watching, take a shuttle boat across town or tour the harbor up the cut. You'll never run out of things to do, concerts at Stage Fort Park and Harbor Loop nightly. Brunch or sunset cruise on the Beauport Princess, a world class cruising ship.

The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
Although private and quiet, we are no more than 10 minutes to shopping, boating, art galleries, fine restaurants, theatre and swimming Walk to two sandy beaches. The Historic fishing port of Gloucester has been rumored to be the fishing capital of the world, and sightseeing abounds be it via tour boat, private boat or afoot. Many fine art museums as well as the Maritime Historic Center are close by. Historic Boston is just a 45 minute drive away. Many festivals and art shows take place during summer, as well as nightly band concerts by the sea.
