My husband and I arrived early on the first day. Susan was more than willing to allow us to come in HOURS before we were supposed to be there. The place is adorable and very well kept! The location is great! Everything you could need or want is in walking distance! Susan gave us some recommendations of places to go... More

Although we never met the owner she was helpful over the internal phone. Location, location, location...hence the overpriced room. When I booked I knew there wasn't any breakfast but the listing really shouldn't be in the B&B category. There was a coffee machine which made disgustingly weak coffee and the opportunity to have some cereal. The room which typically authentic... More

Tv Lounge? It's a beautiful ante-room with a carved mantle fire place, gold leaf picture rail behind Italian Gothic pocket doors. Ironed cotton sheets.....$125/night overpriced? I will learn over and over again...discounts are a bad idea. More

We had a good stay there. Good directions to access and enter the house and the room. A clean and quiet room. A 5 minutes walk to the waterfront and a good breakfast although as french guests, we were expecting some bread ;-)

Management response:

Thank you for the positive review. It is becoming clear that weekenders are back and they want breakfast, phone chargers and someone at the door. We are considering the feedback. Thanks again. More

I was not expecting anyone to greet me at the door. Nor was I expecting a bountiful breakfast in the morning but this should be listed as a boarding house and not a B&B!

great location for Gloucester We didn't see anyone when we arrived, but the owner was nice and helpful on the phone, wasn't used to accommodation being set up so the house keycode is left outside and your room keys are in the room doors already.

I invite you to stay here and write a review. Julietta House offers luxury rooms - self-catered - footsteps to downtown, the waterfront and the train to Boston - at a fair and reasonable price. We do not greet guests at the door and we do not offer breakfast. Our confirmations express this verbatim. Julietta House is historically interesting and... More

A rather confusing place to stay. When we arrived on a Saturday the house door was wide open and the key in the basket by the door as arranged. There was a man watching the tv who we presumed was another guest. Although he wasn't very communicative. No one to welcome us. We read the guest instruction booklet(seemed to have... More

This review made in 2014 needs an updated response. To restate: We have been "self-catered" no breakfast, no daily maid service since 2005. We send written information to inform guests clearly how we operate but we can not make guests read the information. Also, sometimes people read and don't understand until they are experiencing it. The Julietta House is best... More

We had two nights here and enjoyed it very much. The owners are friendly and easy to work with. It's a self-catered house, like in Europe. But that suits us fine as we prefer to eat on our own schedule. You rent the room, but you get the use of the living areas of the house, you could even cook... More

Julietta House, Casually Elegant Accommodations is a self-catered guesthouse. It's not a hotel. Not really an Inn. Not a B&B. Our house is gracious and welcoming, our rooms are very clean and comfortable. We stopped offering breakfast in 2004. We offer complimentary coffee and tea any time. You may bring in your own food and use the kitchen. You may... More
