We stayed in "The Manchester" room at The Harborview Inn last weekend for one night. The facility is located directly across the street from the Fisherman's Memorial on the harbor and has magnificent views from the harbor side rooms and the front porch. We were greeted warmly by proprietor John and were shown to our room immediately after check in.... More

This was our second stay with John, and we couldn't have been happier or more comfortable. The first-floor Golub Room (it's really a suite) is lovely and the bed feels like a cloud. It was also perfect for us, as my wife can't climb stairs very well. We love hearing John talk about the town, the history of the house... More

The Harborview Inn is the perfect place to stay while visiting Gloucester! The location is great! It is just across the street from the famous Fisherman's Memorial, and it is within close walking distance of all the shops on Main St, and the restaurants along the waterfront. And the views! The views of the water are superb! My boyfriend and... More

I have stayed at the Harborview many times while on business in Gloucester. John, the owner, is quite friendly and accommodating. The rooms are clean and quaint. The style is very much old b&b with lots of prints. The rooms could use a little updating, -- new T.V's, a few more outlets, etc -- but then again most B&B guests... More

We stayed on night at the Harborview Inn. The location is amazing with the boardwalk and waterfront right on the doorstep. The room was nice and breakfast was continental. The host John is a nice guy and helpful.

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
