The ocean setting, grounds and the well kept interior is tended with TLC. A beautiful area in Gloucester with many private homes but a public road with plenty of parking across from Beauport. One of the most interesting sites in Gloucester. Don't miss it.

My son and I stopped here by chance and had a great time touring the house and property. It is a unique place with some beautiful rooms and views. You will never see another place like it!

Not a place for young children. A very interesting collection of Art and furniture from around the world.The place overlooks Gloucester Harbor. Free parking. A few miles from food.

Having tours many, many homes throughout the country/world, we were hesitant to take a tour of Beauport, but we're so glad we did! It's a 12,000 sq.ft. home with such character, on beautiful Gloucester harbor. Our group of 8 toured the house in 1 hour and enjoyed all of the interesting historical facts and features of the home. Well worth... More

I enjoyed seeing a house decorated by an interior designer from the 1920's in various styles from eras before then. Fascinating collections and unusual architecture. (Ignore the moldy, musty smell. It is part of the atmosphere) Excellent docent who led our tour 8/27/13

Very interesting tour. The guide was excellent. Each room had a story and a theme. The view was beautiful and the grounds gorgeous. It was inexpensive for seniors $12 and worth it. There are rest rooms on the property and a small gift shop.

I took my girlfriend to see Beauport, Sleeper-McCann House. This was her 1st visit she'd been by the road leading to the entrance many, many times but had never toured the mansion. This mansion, like it's creator is so unique, wimsical and unusual. I just love looking out the windows at the many angles of the roofs as they join... More

It was so interesting. The grounds are gorgeous. Our guide was very knowledgeable and loved when people asked questions. There are 2 types of tours...your basic 1 hour tour which was good. But also a Nooks and Crannies tour that visits every one of the rooms in the house. I didn't know about that one until we were on the... More

Enjoyed Beauport very much. Very different type of house filled with amazing themed rooms and beautiful views. If you're in Gloucester and enjoy great historic homes, Beauport is a place to visit

They have a 1 hr and a 3 hr tour to choose from. You do not need a reservation for the standard one hour tour. It's a good idea for the longer tour because we were told they fill up fast. The mansion and collection are spectacular -- I am not eloquent enough to do it justice. Just go and... More
