This is a 200 year old house overlooking the beach and the Fisherman’s Memorial, walking distance to the downtown area, the harbour and also to Stage Fort Park. There is a small car park at the rear of the property as well as free parking on the street right outside. Also a lovely sunny terrace at the front. We had a great room on the top floor - need to be aware there are stairs up from the street and to the two upper floors so maybe not suitable for those with mobility issues. We took smaller overnight bags to our top floor room We particularly enjoyed the breakfast conversations with the owner John and with other guests.

The inn is wonderful and John is very personable and great to talk to. I was late for work because I was having such a nice time at breakfast with John and the other guests. I had a very pleasant three nights in the Essex Room. The room has a nice King Bed and a private bathroom w shower and very soft, nice towels that were restocked daily. Amenities such as shampoo and soap were available. And I loved that there were Kleenex everywhere! Breakfast was wonderful. I enjoyed the coffee as much as the conversations. There is also tea available all day long. Everything is wonderful quaint and pleasant.

Our quick visit was an anniversary celebration. The Inn was everything we were looking for- great Oceanside location & walking distance to the charming village. Our room was comfortable, cozy and clean with a gorgeous view. John was the perfect welcoming host and made sure we had everything we needed. We really enjoyed talking with him as it gave us much insight into Gloucester’s history and residents. A striking and memorable feature was the beautifully decorated guest lounge (Cape Ann Room) where we enjoyed daily breakfast (great coffee!!). The room was so relaxing and welcoming we spent other time there too, just reading or enjoying the awesome ocean view. We would definitely stay here again and will recommend it to friends and family planning to visit the area.

My husband and I stayed at the Harborview Inn last week and had a wonderful stay. The Inn, and the rooms, are very clean and comfortable, quaint and in a great location. The room had a very nice view of the harbor and is right across the street from the Fisherman Memorial. John, the owner, and his team are very nice and knowledgeable of the area. We would definitely stay there again and highly recommend it.

My husband and I stayed for three nights at the Harborview Inn. The location was perfect. You’re right across from the harbor, and just a short walk to Main Street. The inn was clean and comfortable. John was a wonderful host. We will stay there again on our next visit to Gloucester!

With a hip replacement one month away, I had to walk up 3 flights of very narrow steps with no proper handrail. The fridge was all rusted, the wallpaper in the bathroom was peeling in 3 places, there were cracks in the ceiling and the hallway wall. No proper handicap parking spot. No one to greet us. Granted the house is 200+ years old but it looks like it hasn’t been upgraded since Queen Victoria died (1901) Take a hard pass on this place.

Great spot, fantastic location right across the street from the fisherman memorial. The rooms were nice and the owner John is very personable . Would most definitely stay here again. Walking distance to the downtown area, great restaurant scene. Our you can watch the boats leave the marina do under the working drawbridge.

We were looking for a B&B to finish off our coastal road trip from Maine to Boston. This was the gem of our stays. When you pull up to the B&B, you already know the owner pays attention to detail. The gardens out front were absolutely beautiful. We were welcomed by Sam who showed us around the Inn. I stayed in the Manchester while my friend enjoyed the Magnolia room which was the larger of the two. Both had excellent views of the harbor. Beds were extremely comfortable. Home is decorated in a Victorian style throughout. We met the owner John after dining out and in the morning at breakfast. He was very friendly, and you can tell he takes pride in Gloucester and his B&B. Price was affordable. Breakfast was ample. I would highly recommend staying here if visiting the area north of Boston. Salem is a short drive from here.

We were warmly greeted upon arrival and escorted to a large harbor-facing room. There were waters and snacks available in our room, and self-serve teas, coffee and homemade cookies in the shared space. The toiletries are Beekman 1802, which is a posh touch at a small B&B. They also have a little closet marked for guests’ use containing a printer, plastic cups, etc. That’s a nice touch! The house itself is 100+ years old, but very, very well-maintained feeling clean and quite comfortable. The owner, John, visits with guests over breakfast each morning - his knowledge of the area and community was thoroughly enjoyable. Free on-site parking is a convenience in this area. With downtown being entirely walkable, we were able to head out to dinner (even in the rain) without moving the car. After dinner, we grabbed a bottle of wine at the corner store (surprisingly an ok selection of wines) and played cribbage in the cozy shared space and beautiful view.
