“The best bed and breakfast that I have ever stayed in!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 March 2010

I spoke with the owner and rented a room sight unseen. It was the best move that I have ever made. The place is spotlessly clean and every person there from the owner to the housekeeper was absolutely marvelous. The inn decor was awesome and my room looked out on Gloucester Harbor. We spent hours watching the ships and the lighthouse shining in the distance. John Orlando, the owner, dearly loves this place and it shows.

I found the whole experience great. The owners and staff were so friendly and imformative. The whole house was crisp and clean. The Living Rm./Dining Room was a great place to chit chat w/ other guest or staff. The views are spectacular especially from the front porch. I would recommend it to anyone.
Just a lovley experienc.

We stayed here to go whale watching in Gloucester but there isn't much else to do. So stay in Rockport. But if you do want to stay in Gloucester, this is excellent. The rooms are authentic New England and most have an excellent view of the harbour. The breakfast is good and the owner is friendly when he's around. The whole outside has just been repainted and the interior is soon to follow. There's off street parking too.

Overall we enjoyed our two nights.

Stayed September 2006

Rooms are comfortable but the welcome is slightly subdued. You get the feeling the owners are new to the business because of their lack of rapport with the guests but, in fact, they have been there for along time so perhaps they are bored. However, it is still a lovely location and you can make yourslf comfortable.
There is a good choice of restaurants just a short walk away in Main St. We particularly liked La Trattoria
