Firstly, the reservation process was simple and Linda was prompt in answering my all important question - "What type of coffeemaker should I expect?"
When we arrived, all was as we'd expected with many thoughtful extras like a beach umbrella and small cooler for the beach. The studio was exceptionally clean, comfortable, and pleasantly decorated with the sights and sounds of the harbor in the background, which just made us want to get out and explore the area!
We arrived during the annual Schooner Festival and walked into town our first evening to check it out. The fireworks over the harbor were beautiful. And so began our wonderful week.
Linda provided a wealth of information about the area via brochures and her "Favorite Things To Do" list which we brought with us on every outing. Gloucester has a lot of great food - from sandwiches at Virgilio's to sushi at Latitude 43, and much more in between!
I have wanted to go on a whale watch for years now, and finally got my wish. Seven Seas whale watch was fabulous. A clean, fast boat and naturalist on board made it an amazing experience. We saw several whales, but most amazing was how close we got to a humpback named Etch-a-Sketch and her calf!
I highly recommend A Sunset Serenade. Linda was friendly and helpful, while respecting our privacy. We were relaxed and comfortable in her studio and Gloucester had much more to offer than we had expected! We hope to return, since there was no way to see and do all in one week.
