Owner description: Also called the Beauport Sleeper-McCann House, this fantasy mansion of more than 40 rooms is perched on the rocks overlooking Gloucester Harbor.

The ocean setting, grounds and the well kept interior is tended with TLC. A beautiful area in Gloucester with many private homes but a public road with plenty of parking across from Beauport. One of the most interesting sites in Gloucester. Don't miss it.

My son and I stopped here by chance and had a great time touring the house and property. It is a unique place with some beautiful rooms and views. You will never see another place like it!

Not a place for young children. A very interesting collection of Art and furniture from around the world.The place overlooks Gloucester Harbor. Free parking. A few miles from food.

Having tours many, many homes throughout the country/world, we were hesitant to take a tour of Beauport, but we're so glad we did! It's a 12,000 sq.ft. home with such character, on beautiful Gloucester harbor. Our group of 8 toured the house in 1 hour and enjoyed all of the interesting historical facts and features of the home. Well worth a stop if you have the time. Continue on down the road and you'll be able to visit Eastern Point Lighthouse.

I enjoyed seeing a house decorated by an interior designer from the 1920's in various styles from eras before then. Fascinating collections and unusual architecture. (Ignore the moldy, musty smell. It is part of the atmosphere) Excellent docent who led our tour 8/27/13
