#1 of 18 B&Bs / Inns in Gloucester
Steps from Good Harbor Beach (#1 Beach in New England 2012). Minutes to downtown Gloucester (America's Oldest Fishing Port) and Rockport. Close to Cape Ann's 20+ restaurants and dozens of shops and galleries, as well as the Rocky Neck Art Colony (America's oldest and continuous operating art colony). Just 55 minutes by car or commuter rail to Boston and less than 2 hours drive from other New England destinations. We're one of the most popular spots on "the island you can drive to" (our section of Gloucester is separated from the Massachusetts mainland by the Annisquam River).

Never thought I would enjoy staying at a bed & breakfast. I'm a "hotel kind of person". Got invited by a friend. I was pleasantly surprised. I didnt want to leave. Ed, an owner was so welcoming. I'm definately going back.

I've been both a guest and visitor to Blue Shutters. You won't find more pleasant hosts with deep knowledge of the area, comfortable rooms, and you can almost fall out of your room onto Good Harbor beach. What more could you want?

We've stayed at Blue Shutters several times, once in a regular style room and a couple times in a suite with a small galley kitchen. The kitchen was VERY helpful to have for longer stays. The folks that own/run Blue Shutters could not be nicer. The facility itself could use some updating, but mainly of a cosmetic nature. The location is outstanding as you can easily walk to Good Harbor beach. The view from the Inn is spectacular!
