- Local Area
Stage Fort Park
Stage Fort park, just across the harbor from us, is a great place to swim, hike/walk, have a picnic, learn about history, and more. At the park's Welcoming Center you'll find an extensive collection of maps and brochures as well as volunteers who are happy to share their knowledge of Gloucester/Cape Ann.
Park at Fort Point
The Park at Fort Point is the closest park to our hotel featuring a childrens playground, basketball court, and benches for sightseeing. It also makes for a great location for photos with the hotel as your backdrop!
Cape Pond Ice Tours & Ice House Art Gallery
Art at the Ice House and Cape Pond Ice Company: Just around the corner, less than a two minute walk from the hotel, you'll find two hidden gems: an art loft for browsing or buying local art; and an ice processing plant which supports the fishing industry and more. Cape Pond Ice, a local ice house in business for over 150 years, is known not only for its ice, but its famous tee-shirts labeled "The Coolest Guys Around." They also have a wealth of information about the filming of the movie "The Perfect Storm" which Scott Memhard or his tour guides would be happy to talk to you about. Be sure to sign up for an ice tour or browse the gallery upstairs! Learn more here
Main Street Shops
When you picture the perfect New England town, this is it. You’ll find authentic antique shops, art galleries, clothing boutiques, souvenirs and gifts all within walking distance. Just about every business is owned by locals who are more than happy to help you while you browse.
Imagine boarding a majestic triple-mast schooner for a trek out of Gloucester Harbor that’s very much the same as it was two hundred years ago. Help the crew raise the sails or just sit on the deck and enjoy the crisp breezes and spectacular views.
Downtown Gloucester Restaurants
From mom and pop diners and coffee shops to fine dining bistros and sidewalk cafés, Gloucester’s culinary scene is thriving for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Best of all? The five-minute walk into town is just enough to inspire your appetite. Ask for recommendations at the front desk or just stroll into town and see what catches your eye.
As the nation’s oldest Seaport, Gloucester has lost more than its share of fishermen in seafaring tragedies. Known as “The Man At The Wheel,” this statue memorializes the 10,000 Gloucester fishermen who have lost their lives at sea over the centuries.
Step aboard the beautiful Beauport Cruise ship for a cruise past some of Gloucester’s most famous landmarks, including Gloucester Harbor, Rocky Neck, Eastern Point, Ten Pound Island, Stage Fort Park, Hammond Castle and more.
Each year a diverse variety of whale species congregates off the Gloucester coast to feed on the abundant natural resources. Cruise 12 miles offshore to Stellwagen Bank, a protected national marine preserve recognized among the top five whale watching destinations in the world by the World Wildlife Fund.
Gloucestermen know where to find the fish. Throughout the harbor, you will meet experienced charter captains skilled in handling groups of all sizes and abilities. Whether you’re an old salt or a landlubbing greenhorn, you won’t come back empty-handed.
Bass Rocks Golf Course
Tee off on a scenic yet challenging 18-hole course with ocean views from just about every hole.
Good Harbor Beach
This beautiful, white sand beach is rated among the best beaches not only in Gloucester but in all of New England. Wade out to Salt Island when the tide is low or spend the day body surfing or boogie boarding the gentle Atlantic surf.
Hammond Castle Museum
This stunning medieval castle was built on Gloucester’s rocky Atlantic shoreline in 1929. Once the home of American inventor John Hays Hammond, Jr., today it houses a fascinating collection of Roman, medieval and Renaissance artifacts.
Rocky Neck Art Colony
One of the oldest and most famous art colonies in the United States, Rocky Neck was home to artists including Winslow Homer, Edward Hopper, Frank Duveneck and Childe Hassam. Its funky collection of galleries, shops and restaurants are perfect for a lazy day of browsing, exploring and dining.
Historic Rockport, Massachusetts offers acres of gorgeous beaches, enchanting woodlands and glades, magnificent old lighthouses, exhilarating recreation on land and sea and marvelous restaurants and shops.
