Gloucester Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment in Gloucester, 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, sleeps 5

Not just near the harbor. ON the harbor. A perfect scene all year-round across the bay of the Harbor, Ten Pound Island and the Paint Factory. Walk easily to harbor restaurants, supermarket, train, THE BEACH. A casual home with exceptional views.

SORRY no pets.

The Space

This is a privileged spot on Gloucester Harbor. Great for vacation or for a living space throughout the year.

Obviously, the key feature is the priceless view of Gloucester Harbor, looking over the bay to Ten Pound Island and Rocky Neck that hosts the famous Paint Factory.

It has 1 1/2 bedrooms, 22'' thick queen air mattress so host 7 people on beds including 1 queen, 1 twin, 1 sofa bed and 1 air mattress. And of course the prize-winning balcony view! There is a small spare bedroom with a single bed. One of the sofas in the living room folds out to a very springy bed.

Second floor apartment. It has a large kitchen closet and a spare room.

The whole apartment - and the view - is yours!

Interaction with Guests

The Neighborhood

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. Rezpned 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.

Car or train recommended for getting out of the main town area.

Lots of parking in front of the building which is a dead-end parking lot.

Getting Around

A bike would be great and a car is needed for travel out of the area.

Five stars doesn't seem to do this lovely place justice! Neither does it tell you what a darling, wonderful host you will encounter! If you're looking for a quaint little "crib house" to Totally relax, convenient to any and all shopping, restaurants and touristy spots DO NOT pass this up. I'm only sharing this with you because Mark needs this. When you find a gem of a place like this you hate to let it out because the world moves in and future reservations get tight, if you know what I mean. Just wish we could have stayed longer!!!!!!!!!

  • 4 of 5

my wife and I stayed her last week (7 days) and enjoyed the accommodations Here is a detailed report so future renters can get an accurate assessment of this rental. The unit is 2nd floor in a warehouse with the owners apt at the far opposite end of the building. Downstairs is a lobster processing business. There is no negative's regarding either the apt or the business. You enter at an outside door and walk up a flight of sstairs that are easy and well covered with a nice rubber type surface. You continue a few feet and there is your apt door. Upon entering you are in a large kitchen with a large table. the kitchen is new and modern. To the left is a bathroom and that contains a nice shower stall, a newer toilet and newer sink. Also a handy corner table for all of your "stuff" The water is hot and the pressure is good. Everything worked as it should. Through the kitchen is your living room that has total views from each window of Gloucester Harbor ........you are on the water here and you have 24/7 unrestricted views of all the fishing boats and all the pleasure crafts moving in and our of the harbor. Turn left and you are in a very large bedroom with a nice sitting area and a desk for your computer. WIFI works well. This room ha a sliding glass door to a nice open balcony with two very comfortable shairs and a table and a grill. You are directly over the water and it is a delight to site and watch the boats. Off of the bedroom and down a little hall is another small room with a bed in case you have kids or another adult that can sleep on that bed. The soda in the bedroom area also opens to a bed. The bed itself might be the only area of concern with this rental. It is not as comfortable as it should be and could stand to be upgraded. It is hard, uneven and ready for lunmch/Dinnerretirement. We would have given this rental 5 stars if not for the bed. Overall it is a wee bit overpriced. Now for the surroundings Remember you are in a warehouse and you are surrounded by other similar buildings and businesses. To get to downtown you jut walk straight down Commercial St and you are on Rodgers St about 5 min quick walk or 10 min slow walk. This street has many restaurants and Pubs. One st over is Main with many many shops, galleries, boutiques, and many more restaurants and pubs. You do not need a car and walking is the best way to see the sights. For your convenience here is a list of the good spots we found.

You can't ask for a better location! In town and easy walk to Roger St, Main St, restaurants, brewery, Virgilio's bakery and movies. The best part is that this small apartment's deck hangs over the busy harbor and your entertainment is right in front of you. You can watch your fish supper coming into the docks. The entry and layout of the apartment might off your initial opinion, but the apartment itself has everything you need. Mark met us at the door with clean towels, kitchen supplies and walked us through the ins and outs of the apartment. I was very impressed that any inquiries or emails were answered immediately. He made our choice a very easy one. Thanks...it was a fun experience

Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful relaxing time! The apartment is so adorable and the view from the balcony is relaxing. We spent the first evening on the balcony relaxing and having a few drinks.

The town is quaint and the people are absolutely wonderful! We had breakfast at the Two Sisters, which was absolutely delicious. The breads they have are wonderful! We visited Stones Pub for dinner and enjoyed their Mac n Cheese along with their Five Cheese Dip with Nachos.

If you love art, visit Rocky Neck. They have various stores with wonderful works of art. We took a long drive and enjoyed the view!

If you are looking to relax and take in the sites, please visit! You will have an amazing time!
