Stayed at the Blue Shutters Years ago and was not impressed. However since the new owners have taken over, the place has a totally new look and feel. It is warm and welcoming, clean and spacious. The management staff was very helpful in recommending local places to visit and places to eat. I will make the Blue Shutters Beachside an annual vacation spot.
- 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
