About Carol Allen
We both grew up in NY state and visited this area after my sister and her husband moved here, we loved the beautiful scenery of the area and decided to move here to be near family.
Carol Allen purchased this Apartment in 1999
Why Carol Allen chose Gloucester
We chose this property because of the location. It is only 1/2 mile to Good Harbor Beach, we can go out the door and have a beautiful walk/jog, bike ride, fish,swim, etc. without having to get in the car.

There to visit family in Danvers, MA
All was as expected, and Carol an accommodating host. Walk to Good Harbor Beach a bit deceptive. Charming and well appointed.
Clean and comfortable.
Carol and Jayme are great hosts; everything is provided that's needed for a comfortable stay. The apartment has plenty of space and kept clean both inside and out; and the location is close to many great restaurants and shopping.
Great Apartment, Perfect Location
My stay here was awesome! Carol gave me all the info I needed to get there, park, check in and make myself at home (keys, wifi password, etc.) and made herself available if I needed anything. The apartment is very clean, roomy, comfy bed, great kitchen, and the back deck area is great. The location is excellent, with easy access to the highway, downtown, the beach... Am very much looking forward to staying at Carol's again next summer!
It was a magnific vacation in Gloucester. Very Quiet place nice peoples.
We eat a lot of lobster, clams,
The studio was very clean and operationnal. We only miss television to get news of the world and the weather
It was a pleasure!
We enjoyed our stay at Carol's bright and and sunny place.
It was just as described. It had all that we needed for beach excursions and easy dinners outside. The kids loved playing in the back yard and on the patio.
We'd happily come back here the next time we're in Gloucester. Carol even kindly mailed us a toy that we had left behind. Thank you for the lovely visit.
It's always marvelous!
It's always wouderful to be at your place! The apartement is just perfect for our family!
Walking to the beach, 5 minutes from everything, the terrasse and the bbq... the children still talk about Charlie's visits!
Thanks for everything!
See you next year!
It is so nice seeing you guys every summer. So glad you had another great week! I really like it when families come back and are able to make nice memories here. Glad Charlie is able to be part of them. He loves to visit and entertain. Take care and see ya next year.
The location is terrific, walk/jog the back shore, dine out at a variety of eating establishments, visit Rocky Neck Art Colony for local art as well as entertainment, and as mentioned previously, Good Harbor Beach is 1/2 mile away. There are several restaurants in Rocky Neck which offer live music and outside dining just over a mile from the house. There is a local farmers market and band concert one night a week, usually Thursdays at Stage Fort Park about 2 miles from house. Whale watch tours, sailboat charters, etc. located within a mile. There are also several other beaches in Gloucester, within a short drive.(Wingersheek, Niles Beach, Long Beach, etc) Our neighboring town of Rockport, MA is only 5 miles away with many shops, galleries and restaurants as well. Explore the entire North Shore and it's many quaint towns and villages such as, Marblehead, Salem, Manchester, Beverly, all an hour or less away with train stops in all of them.
For lobster lover's you can also buy fresh lobster right off the boat, down the hill from the house at Captain Joe's Lobster.
