Charming cottage near the ocean w/beach access & near Gloucester!

Good Harbor Haven is a charming home that would be perfect for your next beach getaway. The home has a lovely interior with room enough for the whole family. It also has complimentary WiFi and cable for your enjoyment. Be sure to take advantage of the lovely yard with gas grill also! Cozy up with your family or friends in the spacious and inviting living room area and share a wonderful time playing board games.

What's nearby:
The home is located just east of Gloucester. Here you can find markets, museums, a harbor walk, and plenty of great restaurants. It is a 5-minute drive to a fantastic array of shopping, local eating and less than a 10-minute drive to the center of Rockport.
What really makes this home wonderful, however, is its close proximity to Good Harbor Beach - you could even walk there under 6 minutes! You also can find tons to do in the surrounding area. Parks, museums, lighthouses, historical sites to name a few. There's even a Medieval castle in this city and you must take one of its famous tours! We're talking about Hammond Castle, which is roughly six miles away from you. For more family-friendly fun, spend your afternoon at Maritime Gloucester.

Walking distance to beach and surrounding areas.

We wanted to love this rental. After driving 16 hrs, we were presented with a home that was not tolerable. We had to stay 2 nights (out of 5) due to lack of other options. As advertised, The kitchen is well appointed and updated. It is a short walk to Good Harbor Beach. However, the home is located on a busy road so walking with small children may be tricky and it is very noisy from the traffic. There was a significant sewer smell coming from the water in the bathroom. Worst part was the cockroaches and ants!! Waking to cockroaches on my pillow was the last straw. Would give 0 stars if possible.
Manager response:
Thank you for sharing your review, Laura. We are sorry that your stay with us was less than stellar. Please know our team takes guest feedback very seriously and works hard on addressing the issues they had. The home has been inspected and no sewer smell was found. It has also been professionally treated for pests by an exterminator. While we understand this doesn't make up for the disappointing experience, we hope the refund we issued shows our commitment to guest satisfaction and our intention to make things right. We hope to have another chance to host you in the future.

This was a cozy little cottage that me and my family of 5 really enjoyed ! It's location was perfect, especially if you enjoy going to the ocean and beaches. Gloucester itself has a lot to see. The cottage supplied us with everything we needed so all we really needed to bring was clothing and the food we planned to eat . It was so clean and comfortable! We can't wait to visit again !

For beach lovers, this place is only 5 minutes from the beach. Ideal for a small family. The kitchen is new and well appointed. The location is also good for visiting Rockport. The main drawbacks are that it is on a busy road, and there is only one bathroom.

It was very nice and close to town

Location great for visiting Gloucester and Rockport. Owners did a great job with modern kutchen addition on the back while keeping seaside cottage charm up front. Guests taking chairs & gear to the beach may want to drive over to Good Harbor Beach Inn entrance, drop off, drive back to house and take the short walk. So worth it!

The cottage is adorable and it was a short walk to both Good Harbor Beach and Long Beach (opposite directions from the house). Good Harbor Beach is beautiful, but it wasn't warm enough yet to spend much time on the beach. So instead we had fun in Rockport, went for a hike and checked out a local winery. After dinner we walked to get ice cream on the way to Long Beach, where you can walk along the boardwalk. This was the perfect place for us to get away to and we will definitely be back.
