We just returned from a week at the Colonial Inn. We had never stayed at a B&B in the past so I wasn't sure what to expect. The Inn is an old sea captain's house with a great deal of charm -- nothing fancy but very comfortable. Our room was large with three beds, bath, small refrigerator, a non-working but pretty fireplace, and cable TV. It was very clean and quiet and we had plenty of privacy and a lovely partial view of the sea. There was lots of parking and a large front porch with chairs. It was within walking distance of a small beach and the Rocky Neck Art Colony and a short drive into the main town of Gloucester itself.
Above all, however, I want to thank our hosts Tom and Mike (and Linda, too) for their genuine friendliness, concern and kindness. They truly made this place a home away from home and went out of their way to be helpful and answer all of our questions. Thanks again guys!
If you are looking for someplace peaceful, warm and welcoming look no further.
