Sometimes 'harbor view' means standing on tiptoe straining to look out the attic window -- not so with this amazing house! The dining room offers one of the most spectacular views of the ocean that I've ever seen in a house that wasn't on TV, and it's not even the only room with such a view.
The master bedroom is a perfect romantic oasis with almost a dozen windows overlooking the ocean -- the sunsets and sunrises seen through these windows are incomparable. The master bedroom also has a great little private deck to suit afternoon naps.
The kitchen is spacious and well appointed (two ovens!), and the linens and towels were soft and comfortable. There was even a linen service arranged so we didn't have to wash our sheets and towels at the end of our stay. There's a laundry room upstairs, with the master bed and two other bedrooms, and with another bedroom downstairs and the bedroom and bathroom in the attached apartment, there's plenty of room of everyone.
It's a very short walk (less than half a mile) to the beach, and about a mile walk to the Gloucester downtown area with a library, post office, and many quaint shops and restaurants. Gloucester is a great town in the summer -- music from the Stage Fort Park concert series wafts through the windows in the summer, and in June there's the St. Peter's Fiesta with a carnival downtown (in walking distance) and many other festivities.
I had an amazing experience in this house and would stay here again anytime. From being able to spread out and relax throughout the house, to trips to the beach and downtown Gloucester, this setting makes for a great vacation. If nothing else, I'd come back just for the views!
