The view is spectacular! The apartment is inside a commercial marine building so it's right on top of the water, where the ships come in to unload lobsters and other catches. The apartment itself is not fancy but very comfortable and easy to live in. I've put everything into it that you could really need for a short or long stay.

When we arrived our host met us at the door and let us in, the first thing we noticed was the wonderful view and a balcony to sit on. We were close to most places by walking.

Every where you look out from inside the apt. is a "new picture of the fantastic harbor and boats going out for the catch of the day". Absolutely gorgeous! There is much to see and do,the tulips of spring along the waterfront where the fisherman's statue is located is simply breath taking. We walked over to the Cape Ann brewery...

We really enjoyed our stay here! It felt like you were literally on the water- like in a boat! And the view was magnificent! The apartment was very spacious and well stocked!!!! The beds were comfortable and the location is convenient if you want to be in downtown Gloucester! We will be coming back!

About the neighbourhood
This area hosts some of Gloucester's, and America's, richest maritime history. The harbor is the oldest seaport in US history. Remnants of this fishing town are still alive and well. Redeveloped in recent years, the old Fort and Flats area as well as the old Birdseye factory create an environment of a renewal with antiquity. You are within walking distance to many conveniences and restaurants, both for locals and tourists.

Walk to the beach, downtown, and trains, notably the MBTA commuter rail to Boston and other North Shore towns.

Walk to the beach, playground, restaurants, supermarket, train station.
