                                                              The studio is bright and cheery with a great view of the harbor from inside or on the deck. It has been equipped with everything you might need or want to use and it is centrally located for restaurants and shops. The Rocky Neck Art Colony had great shops and is close by. Linda had prepared a very comprehensive list of local information that was spot on. We would like to return to Gloucester again and certainly stay in the studio! Great hosts.

                                                              Best stay evah!

                                                              Lovely apartment, with bonus deck for enjoying a BBQ & wine. Views of the working harbor can be enjoyed right from the bed (which is super-comfy!). Well equipped kitchen, all the beach gear & best of all, amazing hosts! It's a great location for exploring all of Cape Ann & beyond, and an easy walk into town. Thank you Linda & Hank. We loved Glosta!

                                                              Overall a wonderful place to stay and explore the area from.

                                                              Great little place., 13 minute pretty walk to Good Harbor beAch for sunrises and swims. Short ride to Rocky Neck art colony where the Rudder is, a great restaurant with half price meals on thursdays! Nice deck overlooking the harbor and great for having a cup of coffee, reading, or grilling up some seafood. Actually the bedroom overlooks the harbor and the sunsets. Everything we needed was there and The owners were really nice people. Loved our stay!

                                                              We loved having you folks... thanks for mentioning that the bed overlooks the harbor! Ha! We do have a great location and view, central yet tucked away. A pleasure to meet you both.

                                                              Glorious spot, cozy, comfortable and scenic.

                                                              Linda and Hank are the most gracious, accommodating--and fun--hosts you could hope for. (They also know how to give their guests privacy and space if they want it .). We are return guests at their place for 5 years. We always look forward to a perfect stay at the studio, and this year was no exception. Can't wait til next year's trip already!

                                                              Owner's Response:

It's always nice to hear that you enjoyed your stay once again - we love that you love Gloucester and the area so much. Hope to see you next year!

                                                              Gloucester, settled in 1623, is America's oldest seaport. Situated at the center of Cape Ann, Gloucester has one of the finest harbors in Massachusetts and remains one of the busiest fishing ports on the Eastern seaboard. Visitors are drawn to Gloucester's rich history, natural beauty, incredible beaches, fresh seafood, and on-water activities, especially the popular whale watch excursions. Gloucester also hosts a sizable artist population, many of whom can be found on Rocky Neck, the oldest working art colony in America.
