Recent Gloucester vacation rental reviews

The house was very clean and had a well stocked kitchen and plenty of towels. It had nice amenities if traveling with very small children. Located close to grocery stores and places to eat. Many restaurants close by 8 but the food is delicious. Short drive to Salem and Boston. Would definitely stay again.

Clean and convenient location

This location was perfect for why we needed to be there....work. The home was clean and set up nicely. Everything we needed was available - we were all comfortable there, and the parking was great for both of our trucks. No issues with check in, check out or communication. Almost felt like we're were on vacation!

History of Gloucester, MA

With a history dating back to 1623, the town we know as Gloucester (pronounced "gloster") has a long and interesting background. The area was originally founded at Cape Ann by a group of settlers from Dorchester, England, predating both Salem and the city of Boston.

Since many original settlers moved to Salem in hopes of finding better farmland, the area of Gloucester was briefly abandoned before slowly coming back on the map again in the late 1600s. Today, you can see a variety of local sights near your vacation rental to explore the town's history, from the Town Green where settlers built the first school, to the White-Ellery House built in 1710 for Gloucester's first minister.
