My fiancee and I stayed at Ellen's for a quick weekend getaway from Boston and it was just what we needed! The location is really ideal, because you are VERY close to a couple beaches and about 15-30 minutes away from pretty much any other point of interest on the north shore. Ellen is a great host and she gave us a rundown of the area that really helped us plan out our weekend!

Ellen is a great host! Very friendly and accommodating. Not to mention - the area is absolutely beautiful. Would recommend to anyone visiting the area that wants a quiet, cozy, private accommodation while in Gloucester.

Ellen was very nice and her place was perfectly comfortable for my son and I Amd our quick trip to see the whales. Gloucester has a lovely village and is great for families...

Cozy and private, and located in a wooded neighborhood. Conveniently located to Gloucester but away from the bustle.Communication was excellent. Ellen met us in the driveway and gave us great recommendations for our stay. The screen porch is a lovely place to sit with coffee and watch the birds.

Ellen's place is cozy--a perfect size for a small family. Her yard is lush and quite lovely. Ellen was accommodating and helpful and wanted to be sure that we enjoyed our stay. It is a beautiful and easy walk (about half an hour) to Cunomon Point. Downtown Gloucester is a short drive away.

Ellen is a wonderful host greeting us on arrival, providing info and resources for the area, and checking in with how our day went, but not in any way intrusive. The apartment was as described. It was up a hill in a wooded area, quiet and cozy. It was comfortable with ample space for two with a nice bathroom, kitchen, eating and sitting areas. The cubby for the bed was comfy. The electric heater she provided for the cool fall weather easily heated the space. We really enjoyed our stay and would certainly choose this spot again.
