A great property is one that sticks by you through thick and thin. I have been blessed to have found the Blues Shutters Beach House as my official home away from home when I am in Gloucester for business. In the dead of winter, when many places are boarded up or open selective hours, Ed, the hospitable innkeeper, has the fire going, light on and amenities I long for after a day at work. He has made a great effort to get to know me and even packs me a breakfast to take to work if I am in a rush. While the inn is the ideal place to be in the summer, (Location, Location, Location…) it is the quite evenings and coffee and conversation mornings in the comfortable living room I will take away with me. Well worth the trip!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Steps from Good Harbor Beach (#1 Beach in New England 2012). Minutes to downtown Gloucester (America's Oldest Fishing Port) and Rockport. Close to Cape Ann's 20+ restaurants and dozens of shops and galleries, as well as the Rocky Neck Art Colony (America's oldest and continuous operating art colony). Just 55 minutes by car or commuter rail to Boston and less than 2 hours drive from other New England destinations. We're one of the most popular spots on "the island you can drive to" (our section of Gloucester is separated from the Massachusetts mainland by the Annisquam River). ... more less
