Cozy, newly renovated house in a quiet neighborhood. We could walk to the coffee shop in the mornings and, within a 15-minute drive, be anywhere else. There's a nice deck for sitting outside and the living area lets in beautiful light. We had our little Boston Terrier with us so fellow dog owners should know that Gloucester is not a particularly dog-friendly town. Very few restaurants would let us bring him with us (I'm talking about outside dining, of course) and the beaches that allowed leashed dogs were few and far between. Good Harbor Beach -- the one closest to this property -- is very pretty but definitely NOT dog friendly at all. We had great luck, however, at Wingaersheek Beach, where dogs are allowed after Sept 15. Ipswitch Ale Brewery was also very dog friendly and had good food. Overall, it was a lovely getaway and the property was a great home base, given its centralized location; so easy to get to wherever we felt like roaming on any given day!
