We just got back from a wonderful stay at the Vista. The reviews were all glowing so we thought we'd take a chance on this charming motel rather than staying at a more impersonal hotel chain. Our room was in the older part which made it very affordable and staying there reminded us of being at a seaside cottage. We could see the ocean perfectly from our picture window, as well as have our coffee and read on the patio. We watched the surfers at dawn and at dusk, as well as walked along the beach before heading into town for delicious,fresh seafood dinners.
Priscilla at the desk was friendly and most helpful in her suggestions on where to go exploring and the drive along the shoreline along Highway 127 into Salem for our visit to the Peabody Essex Museum was lovely. At times the views reminded us of the Maine coastline and some county roads in England. It took us less than 30 minutes to get to Salem and we avoided the heavier traffic that we encountered driving into Gloucester.
A continental breakfast of fruit, cereals and freshly baked goodies with a good assortment of coffee and teas is included. The other residents at the Vista were quiet so we didn't have to deal with loud visitors or doors being slammed at all hours.We can't wait to return to the Vista for another visit and the chance to explore more of the Cape Ann area.
