“Good & bad”
Reviewed 21 March 2011

Nice place for watching 4th of july parade perfect spot for this occasion. The parking is off street but very tight drive a small asmary car. The manager is nice we had fresh pastries muffins in morning in a basket. The housekeeping sucks and poor. The bathroom had old shampoo soap from last guest. There was No coffee! So in our case the location is perfect and will rent another in next time due to cleanliness. The 2nd day we came back to room to find the bed and room not even picked up! Housekeeping and parking is our only complaints

This was our first time vacationing in Gloucester & staying at Babson Court was the perfect place. The Innkeepers were very helpful with directions & the best places to eat plus thery were very, very funny!
The suite was larger than we thought it would be & worked out great for a week stay. The mattress was extra firm but after a few days you got use to it & we slept fine. The street noise may be an issue for some but the views from the windows made it all worth while.
We enjoyed our stay & would go back.

I enjoyed my stay at the Inn, the owners are nice and very funny, our room was clean and comfortable. My bedroom was on the front and it was nosiy with traffic and the ocean but I managed to sleep comfortably. the bed was firm but clean and I was very satisfied. I would go again

there are a lot of good things. The owners are nice, the location is nice. The muffins are nice. The price was reasonable.

The bad parts: The mattress was like sleeping on a piece of wood. The traffic outside even late at night was really hard to get used to. We had to drive 16 miles to Walmart to buy a mattress pad and then turn up the air conditioner full blast. Otherwise, there is no way I could have slept there another night.

otherwise, nice place, but i'll look elsewhere next time!

We had neglected to book a hotel prior to our trip. We arrived in town and inquired from a local as to where to stay. The Inn at Babson Court was suggested, we called to make sure a room was available (and within our price range), and then drove over to check out the room. We had never stayed at a bed & breakfast before. We stayed in the William Friend suite and was pleasantly surprised with our rooms. The room is directly across from the infamous Man At The Wheel statue and also overlooks the water. There is some noise from traffic that seems to drive by even at late hours. Decor is shabby chic and, yes, there's a little dust here and there so if you're looking for a sterile environment, then this B&B is not for you. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay though and would definitely stay here again.

This place was nice and each room had a theme. We loved staying there for my sister in law's wedding. The guy that was taking care of the place was such a character! We ended up renting the entire house for the weekend and we had a blast!

When our usual motel in Cape Ann was overbooked, we had to find accommodations on very short notice. I found the website for The Inn at Babson Court full of pictures, history, and reasonable prices. Only by changing the name to “Your Home at Babson Court” could one express the level of attention and genuine interest in our needs that we experienced during every day of our stay. The Inn’s location directly behind the famous statue of the “Man at the Wheel” in Gloucester Harbor could not be more centrally located or romantic. The Innkeepers are as charming and complex as their accommodations. A true gem of the sea!
