GREATEST place to stay in GOOD Harbor Gloucester MA

  • 5 of 5

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

Amazing Rental House!

  • 5 of 5

We had our wedding in Gloucester in early October, 2011. The bride had several family members coming from out of state. Instead of having them get hotel rooms, they just all stayed at this house for the duration of their stay.

This house was more than perfect for that. The location was wonderful for all. Quick drives to the towns of Gloucester and Rockport and a quick walk to the gorgeous Good Harbor beach. Everything was so close by.

The house itself is huge! Easily accommodates a couple of families with children. The house is quite a maze, and you'll have fun finding your way around it. Two kitchens for cooking big family meals or each families individually. Plenty of bathrooms for getting ready. A huge tub for baths for little ones. And the views from the balcony are breathtaking, you won't want to leave. They even have a pool table/ping pong table, plenty of board games, and a PlayStation3 available for rainy days. And a wonderful grill for those not so rainy days.

The owners of the house are very helpful and extremely communicative.

I would definitely rent this home again, if only I can find enough people to fill it!

July 11 - Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

My extended family and I stayed the week and the house was perfect. Very spacious house, nice clean hard wood floors throughout, beautiful views of the beach. We could walk to the beach and everything was very close by (stores, restaurants, Gloucester and Rockport). We started off with a wedding crowd where 15 folks stayed 2 nights and the place was big enough to fit all comfortably with plenty of bathrooms to accommodate getting ready. Then, we spent the week with 12 for a nice vacation -- it really worked for us. Highly recommend it for multi-family vacations.
