“Beautiful Home & Grounds”
Reviewed July 12, 2014

Many years ago my husband and I toured this lovely home and were very impressed with the 50 room home and grounds. Last night we went there for an outdoor concert on the side lawn looking out over the harbor and setting sun. The two Celtic musicians were wonderful as was the beautiful evening. For the ticket price of thirty dollars a piece we had a mini tour of the main house, wine and munchies as well as a great music experience. There are two more concerts scheduled this summer. We plan on returning for them. It is a wonderful way to spend a summer evening.

“Beauport, the Sleeper-McCann House”
Reviewed July 3, 2014

This house is spectacular. Each room, is a visual delight for the viewer. My jaded partner, was quite impressed here. My, 96 y.o. Mum, swooned. Do not miss this one, if you love art, antiques, design, details and colors.

“History frozen in time”
Reviewed June 29, 2014

My wife and I were visiting the Gloucester area this past week and had the occasion to walk past this home when it was closed. We took note of the opening hours and returned to take in this wonderful home. The history behind it is very interesting and won't spoil it for those planning on going but you'll enjoy every moment of your visit. The grounds, especially this time of the year, are fantastic with most all the flowers in bloom. They have hourly tours which are fascinating and very well done. The grounds are compact but wonderfully laid out especially overlooking the bay. Go on a sunny day if possible, it makes the whole home just shine.
