We call your summer home away from home, "Good Harbor House" because everyone who comes here to seek a peaceful, relaxing vacation finds it right here. We are just up the block from Gloucester's most beautiful Good Harbor Beach; a picture-perfect spot, with over a 1/2 mile of white sandy beach and dunes for glorious walking, swimming and water sports. This is Gloucester's "pride and joy", and people come from far and wide to paint and photograph this very spot. A very short walk will bring you to the famous "Back Shore", a breathtaking walk along the at Good Harbor House.

Good Harbor House is great for a couple looking for a relaxing getaway, a group of friends coming for reunion or special event, or a family with children. One of our guests brought a kayak and participated in the Blackburn Challenge, a 20+ mile circumnavigation of Cape Ann. We have even had a bride stay before her wedding and the wedding party come to take pictures in our beautiful garden. Those who stay here appreciate our quiet surroundings, lovely gardens/grounds, and especially a very short walk to Good Harbor Beach. Some who are joggers love an early morning run along the scenic "Back Shore", with its panoramic views of the ocean along the rugged coastline. As for when families with children stay, we are very "kid friendly".

This unit includes one bedroom with queen four-poster bed, full bathroom (tub and shower), and a fully-equipped walk through kitchen which opens to a very comfortable living room/dining area. The living room area has a queen sleep sofa. Additional amenities include Cable TV, wireless internet, window AC in bedroom, fan in living room. The covered veranda provides a great cooling respite from the sun in summer and becomes the perfect place to just 'hang out'. Past guests use this space as an extra room to entertain friends and family and have meals out on the porch as long as weather permits. We provide patio furniture. Families with children will especially appreciate the fenced-in outside space for children to safely play. Linens, beach towels, beach chairs and off-street parking provided.

Nearby Attractions: Good Harbor House is less than one block from Good Harbor Beach, a picture-perfect spot, with over one-half mile of white sandy beach and dunes for glorious walking, swimming and surf boarding. People come from far and wide to paint and photograph this very spot. A short walk will bring you to the scenic 'Back Shore', a breathtaking walk along the ocean. Just one mile away you will find the nation's oldest artist colony, Rocky Neck, with galleries, quaint shops and restaurants on the water. The Good Harbor House is also three miles to the scenic sea-side village of Rockport , another area famous for its galleries, quaint shops and restaurants nestled on the water. Your location is also walking distance to food markets, restaurants, laundry; not to mention, the best ice cream shop! You are one mile to Gloucester center and harbor, where whale-watching and harbor cruises are available. Fabulous restaurants and quaint shops line the main street and harbor of the center.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The owners were very willing to work with my changing needs before my arrival. The room had all the things I needed to make my stay comfortable and the location was great, right down the street from the best beach in town.
