A beautifully restored colonial built in 1850 in the quiet village of Lanesville, Gloucester, on designated scenic route 127. A short walk to the rugged rocky coast, the lobstering harbor in Lanes Cove, and Plum Cove Beach, you can watch beautiful sunsets over Ipswich Bay. We are a 5 min drive to Halibut Point State Park, and 10 minute drive to the arts village of Rockport. Other rooms available if you are traveling with friends and family. Health Dept. Licensed.
This is the Gloucester Room, with photos of Gloucester harbor with historic sailing vessels, fishing boats and St Peter's Fiesta. This is one of two charming rooms on the second floor, with antique furniture, cozy comforter when cold and air conditioning when hot. If both rooms are occupied, guests share a bathroom down the hall. This room has a queen size bed with a highly rated mattress. Hosts live on the first floor. We desire to share this gracious home and beautiful coastline and wooded areas with others that are nourished through creation and creativity.

Either Judith or Mark will be available when you arrive to tell you about the house, the beautiful, natural environment, the village of Lanesville, all kinds of recreational opportunities nearby, the Flat Rocks Gallery across the street and of course all the restaurants, museums, and the historic harbor (oldest in the US) in downtown Gloucester. We will respect your space if you are here for a quiet retreat, or be available for questions if you prefer to learn more about the unique history of the area. Judith's mother's family were one of the first to settle the nearby town of Rockport, and were foundational to the Gloucester fishing industry for centuries . Her father's family were Swedes that operated a boarding home in nearby Folly Cove for the Finish granite cutters. We are open to socializing more if you let us know you are interested.
Although in Gloucester, Lanesville is a neighborhood very close to Rockport, with a beautiful harbor known for lobstering, lots of restaurants (in the summer) and many art galleries,and the state of the art Shalin Lu Theater for outstanding music performances. In downtown Gloucester you will find a historic seaport, the outstanding Cape Ann Museum and Maritime Gloucester Heritage Center, lots of restaurants for the finest seafood and other choices. There are countless special events and celebrations, including the famous St. Peter's Fiesta in late June.
