  • So this place is amazing

    "The views and the proximity are breath taking. You completely forget about your troubles listening to the rhythm of the ocean. The sunsets are beautiful, so are the sunrises. Best yet is the sandbar that appears at low tide so you can walk to the Island. The house is quite comfortable, there is ample parking, and our every need was met. I also love the fact that the owners have a professional house manual that explains everything about the house and the area. Good Harbor Beach is right down the road, an easy walk. We enjoyed watching people with their dogs playing on the beach in the winter, from the warm house. On a cold winter day, the solar gain in the sunroom brought the temps up to a whooping 80 Degrees!! Between the ocean sounds, the ocean view, the sunrises and sunsets, not to mention a crackling fire in the fireplace, this house just can't be more wonderful! We had a wonderful visit and the owner is just a delight to work with and a great communicator, arranging a last minute vacation for our family. We highly recommend this rental."

  • Perfect house for family fun

    "Our daughter got married at Willowdale Estate. Since we were from out of town, we decided to rent a house within commuting distance to the wedding but near a beach. The Beachcomber was the perfect house for us. Beautiful Long Beach was a short stroll away and the house was stocked with everything you could possibly need including beach chairs and beach towels! Our son loved his room off the upstairs den (complete with pool table). Good Harbor Beach was only a mile away and we could walk easily to the Dairy Maid! Huge cones! Pizza was very good there too! If you simply can't get away from the office, they've got WiFi too. This came in very handy a couple of times for us. All in all, it was a very relaxing place to stay, in a beautiful setting, close to anything you might want or need, for a satisfying holiday. We enjoyed ourselves thoroughly and hope to go back someday and invite our adult children to join us for a week of coastal fun and relaxation. I highly recommend staying here whether your children are 5 or 25. And if you happen to be hosting or joining a wedding party in the area...renting a house like this is a lifesaver."

  • College Reunion

    "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: Bell View was the perfect location and set up for our yearly college reunion! The house was fully equipped both inside and out, something for everyone! There was plenty of room for the kids to have their space and for the adults as well. Loved the many outdoor seating areas, tennis court and large lawn. Lots of bunnies too! Overall very satisfied with our stay and with the amenities of the house. Several beaches were within walking distance which saved a lot on parking fees. Deep sea fishing, stand up paddling and hiking to Halibut Point were the highlights of the week!"

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.
