We only stayed one night but the inn was clean, the view from the front porch was amazing and beautiful, one of the most beautiful well tended flower gardens anywhere around here. The innkeepers were very friendly, the room was very comfortable. My only wish was the breakfast was a little better, I'm used to a nice cooked breakfast at... More

Arriving in Gloucester on a Wednesday evening with no reservations, we came upon this B&B along the harbor. Fortunately we were able to stay here for one night. Even though there was a lot of traffic noise heard in the room, the traffic subsided by 10 p.m. and we had a very quiet, restful night's sleep. The photo of the... More

Our out-of-town guests were happy with the room and we were thrilled to get it for them. The Harborside Inn was the only place in the area that would rent a room for a single night. You will be well cared for by the owner and will enjoy your stay. As a local, I can verify that the place is... More

We found the accommodations surpassed our expectations with a very warm and welcoming atmosphere. Breakfast though featuring simple fare proved more than adequate for our morning requirements. This morning repast takes place in a friendly, unhurried environment that can provide interesting conversation with John and the other clients or can be a solitary affair on the veranda if desired. John... More

Most people know the difference between a 4 star hotel in Boston and a classic New England Bed and Breakfast on Cape Ann. The Boston hotel might impress you with its amenities and fancy technological capacities, but that's not why you come to a place like the Harborview Inn. Don't look for a main desk, because you won't find one.... More

John does a great job of providing many of the amenities of a hotel, while creating the atmosphere of a small, warm and friendly B&B. That attention to detail allows you to feel that you are staying in a home that is yours for the time you are there. This friendly atmosphere encourages guests to share conversations and experiences with... More

We were able to book a room at the last minute. There is a Beautiful view of the Harbor across the street, within walking distance of downtown Gloucester. John was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was simple but good. Off Street Parking available and a nice front patio. Very welcoming.

Great place. My wife and I stayed in the Essex room and it was very comfortable. John is a super nice guy and went out of his way to make us feel at home. Location is easy walking distance from Gloucester Harbor and all the shops and restaurants. Continental breakfast was quite good and John put it out early so... More

Great location. Great house. John is a wonderful host. The breakfast is a very nice continental breakfast, if you must have a gourment breakfast crash made this is not the place. . The front porch overlooking the harbor is a spectacular bonus.

Comfortable, clean and with this kind of romantic chic I always wanted to stay for a nigth. Our sleeping room was a... More
