GREATEST place to stay in GOOD Harbor Gloucester MA
"Plenty of room (4000sqft!), plenty of rooms (I lost count, but there are 7 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, 2 kitchens, multiple dining areas, multiple sitting areas, multiple washer/dryers, a room to play board/card games/do puzzles and a game room with pool/ping pong/air hockey!, closets galore.). Short walk/very short drive to Good Harbor Beach and great views from the house! GHB is a great beach, Wingaersheek is also nearby if you want to mix it up. The house has a huge collection of beach chairs, umbrellas, etc. in case you didn't bring enough for everyone! Minutes away from everything in Gloucester and the surrounding towns (Rockport, Essex, etc.) We ate breakfasts in house - both kitchens are well equipped, upstairs has a great view. We had lunch take out from Virgillios and Sugar Magnolias, both excellent. Dinners at Topside and Lat 43°, both excellent. Also a huge fan of Woodmans over in Essex for Lobsters and Clams. Mark and Sarah are the owners - they will set you up, provide recommendations, and see you on your way out! Thank you, J/E/N/M/S/&J"

"Seven of us stayed recently in this beautiful home and had the best weekend ever. The house is absolutely beautiful with a view of the water. The beach was quiet, peaceful and also beautiful and just a short walk. Everything you need is right there and Deb was just a phone call away as she walked me through turning the heat on the first night we were there. Rockport and Glouceter are great for shopping and eating and we took the Lannon Schooner out of Gloucester on Sunday. The perfect weather was also a plus. If you want to enjoy a perfect weekend in this beautiful home in this beautiful area this is the place for you! Thanks Deborah for sharing your home."

"Talk about being centrally located and convenience, you got it here at Al and Barb's home. There's a 7/11, Stop & Shop, Beauty Parlour, ice cream shop and the beach all within walking distance. You can walk to Main St. and all the boutique shops too, if you want? We're open ocean kayakers, and love this place because there was lots of parking on the lot and we didn't have to park our car out on the street with the kayaks on top, like most places. Al said there was room in the back, so we could off load, hose down and store in the back yard.
Inside, the beds were comfortable, wifi worked, and the kitchen was complete. There's big screen tv too. I told Al, my daughter was a finger picking guitarist and he loaned her his personal Taylor acoustic guitar.
Perhaps, the most convenient thing about our stay, was walking over to have breakfast at Zeke's at 5:00 a.m. in the morning. Sit at the counter and watch Mike put on a show for you in making your omelet and French toast. Take home some baked in house bread when you go.
We were lucky to stay here and be able to launch our kayak at various locations around Cape Ann. Our only regret was that we wen't able to stay longer. We really do miss Al and Barb's home..."

"This is the second year we have rented this house with our grown kids and their families. Both years have been amazing and we look forward to next years vacation at the beach house! Our grand babies are ages four years old and younger and it has helped their parents to be able to keep them on the same nap schedule while a parent relaxes on one of the porches and reads a book or watch other family members just across the street at the beach. Both porches are very relaxing and inviting and watching the sunrise (yes, sometimes we've been up that early) from one of the rocking chairs was a gift in itself! At night the porch has been a place of togetherness while we share each others stories, play cards and relax.
The bedrooms are set up perfectly for us with a couple of them having adjoining doors so that we can fit pack n plays comfortably in them. The beds are comfortable and the rooms are clean. We love that we can all fit in the kitchen and eat and also the dining room. This beach house has been a perfect fit for our family, very comfortable and feels like home to us.
Good Harbor beach has been a delight!! We love everything it offers; walks along the shore at all hours of the day and into the night, sand castles galore, riding the "lazy river" on our boogie boards, and enjoying watching the kids catch hermit crabs, baby shrimp, and small stripers with their nets before letting them go back to the ocean. It's most amazing while we're enjoying the ocean and all its fun, that when all the beachgoers up and leave, we get to keep on having fun, or just relax and take our time knowing we can come and go as we please. We also fit in our daily walks which we so enjoy because of the beautiful ocean view and breeze off the water. We love walking in and out of the nearby streets just as we do at our own neighborhood.
There are playgrounds, restaurants, deli's and bakeries all close by along with an ice-cream stand that we easily walk to that sells Richardson's ice-cream and happens to be one of our favorite creameries! We never worry about groceries because Stop N Shop is right across from the ice-cream stand :) very convenient!
It's been very relaxing and yet invigorating to stay so close to the beach. It has definately been a refreshing and restoring vacation for all of us and we walk away with very happy memories of our togetherness!"
