Recent Gloucester reviews

  • 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."

  • Nirvana at Good Harbor Beach

    "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 very helpful. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: If you have a group of ten and can manage the expense, this is an ideal arrangement. Beautiful house, fully outfitted, with easy access to Good Harbor Beach. A warning: if you plan to bring a crowd to Duckworth Bistro (recommended) book a table at least a month in advance."

  • Beautiful, character filled home in DT Gloucester!

    "I didn't want to leave and already booked for next year! The house is clean and well appointed. The owner takes wonderful care of the house and property and is very easy to communicate with. The house is located right in downtown Gloucester, so it is walking distance to restaurants and shops. Quick drive to world class beaches, Good Harbor and Wingearsheek. Great home for families or for a couples get away. The sun porch overlooking the harbor is my favorite room."

  • Michael and Pam Dean

    "We loved our stay at this home! We found the home to be in a quiet neighborhood with nice surroundings. The home is very clean, well set up and attractive. We loved the views of the cove from the kitchen and bedroom windows and we loved that it was a short drive to the beautiful town of Rockport. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to others."

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.
