As many reviewers point out, this house has a very interesting interior design, which is well coordinated in its details. The owner loves mirrors and hidden doors, and all other interior details are matched with great taste. Particularly charming are the exposed roof beams in the two upstairs suites (Cut Stevens and William Friend). These suites offer considerably more space... More

We discovered the elegant "Inn at Babson court" by chance when looking for somewhere to stay in Gloucester. Our room was large and had a great sea view, wonderfully decorated in a unique fashion, really enjoyed the stay. There were only two of us but there was also a mezzanine floor with 2 small beds which would be ideal for... More

Absolutely loved The Inn at Babson Court. Other viewers have said it well. Paul, the owner is a very interesting, pleasant host willing to help make your stay a great one. We as well as another viewer had the room on the ground floor (with the leopard sheets and monkey end tables). The bed was a tad on the hard... More

Notice how many reviewers use the word 'quirky'? Don't go here if you insist on cleanliness, fresh paint, matching decor, or a great free breakfast. But if you like leopard print sheets, monkey end tables, cornflakes in a box, a voluble and fascinating host, and a perfect Gloucester location, by all means stay at the Inn at Babson Court.

We were looking for a room and stumbled upon the Inn. They didn't have any rooms but Paul made a few calls and found us one up the hill. What we saw was very quaint and for Paul to be so nice to someone not even staying with them is a rarity. I would definitely stay there in the future... More

my husband and I spent my birthday and new years eve weekend at the Inn at Babson Court...we were greeted with friendliest atmosphere of Paul and his friend. Paul is a wonderful inn keeper/owner. We spent time with him while he told us the story of the building and of the "muffin bunny", also known as Samuel. We stayed in... More

We really enjoyed this place, but it had it's quirks. Our suite had a dramatically high ceiling with old, exposed rafters, and a loft filled with kid-sized furniture which could be accessed by a spiral staircase. The ocean view was excellent, and included a direct view if the fisherman's monument. Unlike other reviewers I was not bothered by traffic sounds.... More

A comfortable, spacious, quirky but pleasant inn that offers a 'small B&B' experience but with ample room to spread out. Views of the harbor are available, if limited in some rooms. Location is ideal and offers a short walk to parks, restaurants, shopping and local neighborhoods. The owners are engaging and hospitable, with morning muffins and other sweet stuff delivered...

My fiance and I stayed there in September of 2010. We ended up there quite by accident, only intending staying for one night, but ended up staying for three nights because it was so wonderful. The location could not be better as we were on a motorcycle, and were able to walk everywhere we needed to go for sightseeing and... More

My husband and I stayed here during St. Peter's Fiesta (June 24 - 27). This was actually our second stay. The last time was in 2009 and both times we stayed in The Samuel "Cut" Stevens Suite, which is a huge room with a spiral staircase going up to a second sleeping area. The inn is very quaint and uniquely... More
