Recent Gloucester reviews

  • Family gathering

    "We came up from Texas for my niece's wedding. There were 9 of us staying here. PLENTY of room and kitchen is very well stocked of any cookware you may need. We had a shrimp and lobster boil one night,(plenty of lobster pots) and sat on the deck to relax. Weather was wonderful, had to sleep with a light blanket a couple of nights. The house may seem outdated, but if you are interested in the New England experience and want a comfy place to stay, THIS IS IT!!!! ( If I ever have the pleasure to come up this way again I will definitely stay here.) Photos of the house are great, lets you know the quaintness. The Deck off the back has amazing views of the river and are GREAT for morning coffee and evening cocktails. Gloucester is a quaint little town and Rockport is just up the way, Boston is great place to spend the day and head back here for the evening of relaxation. The owner is VERY nice and personable. HIGHLY recommend this jewel of peaceful bliss to ALL!!!!"

  • Dream Vacation

    "This house was a dream come true for our large family. It is clean, spacious, comfortable, with a lovely view of the cove. All amenities are provided and the owner is available if needed. The location is ideal for sightseeing, boating, and is near beaches. The loft was where the children slept and they loved it. We look forward to returning one day and would recommend it."

  • Sunny, spacious and well-equipped

    "Rating Details: I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. I was very happy with the location. The vacation rental was spotless. The property manager was more than helpful. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Our family from Maryland, NYC and the Boston area united at the Seaside House for a week in August, including two small children. We have stayed at numerous properties near Good Harbor Beach over several decades, and found Seaside House to be a spacious and well-equipped property just a short walk from the beach, with the added benefit of the lovely Bass Rocks views and walks. Terrific weather and a full moon over the water added to our enjoyment. The owners are on the property and offered any assistance we might need, but all went smoothly. We would suggest the addition of room darkening shades in all windows, especially on the front of the house. It's a great house for kids with all the diversions of the beach, a nice porch, and super play and game room. The busy street traffic right in front of the house was the only downside for us, and did not seriously detract from the restful experience."

  • Loved Gloucester with the Quilter!

    "The time at the Quilter's house in Gloucester was wonderful. Views of the harbor from the living room were beautiful. The garden and pool were special and private. It was ideal for two couples and the open floor plan made sharing the kitchen easy. Most of all, we enjoyed visiting with the owners. Advice on restaurants, sites, and transportation was tops."

Gloucester Travel Tips

Gloucester Vacation Rentals Offer Fun, Excitement and a Bit of History

For many of us, taking a vacation means going to a place with gorgeous beaches, great food, good entertainment, and a myriad of sights and activities. Gloucester vacation rentals have all of that, and then some. Gloucester is a town that is both loaded with vacation activities and steeped in unique history. It's the oldest seaport in the United States, and it's also home to America's oldest arts colony. And it's definitely no wonder why—located on Cape Ann, Gloucester is surrounded by the sea and all the bounty and inspiration it holds.

Find Inspiration in Gloucester's Beauty

Gloucester's spectacular landscapes and views have fueled the creative fires of all kinds of artists, from writers (T.S. Eliot, Herman Melville, Rudyard Kipling, and John Updike) to painters (Winslow Homer, Maxfield Parrish, and Edward Hopper) to playwrights and poets (Israel Horowitz, Charles Olson, and Vincent Ferrini). There are numerous festivals, sights, and block parties to get your creative juices flowing all year round, but if you're more interested in action, there's plenty in Gloucester for you as well. Gloucester beach homes are the perfect places from which to go kayaking, swimming, hiking, or sailing. The town is also home to dozens of points of interest, from historical to architectural to cultural. Gloucester has something for everyone to appreciate.

Immerse Yourself in all That Is Gloucester

If you're looking for North Boston lodging near the beach that has an endless array of sights and activities ripe for appreciation, Gloucester vacation rentals are the perfect accommodations for you. You can live like a local while you experience everything the town has to offer, from sports to dining to shopping and entertainment. And when you're done for the day, you can come back to your very own cozy abode and feel truly at home.
