We are located just one block from Good Harbor Beach. Even on the hottest summer days, our location near the beach and our covered porch catches cooling ocean breezes if there are any to be had.
Step out and enjoy the peace and quiet of the beautiful gardens, or just relax and listen to the birds singing and the ocean waves lapping the shore at Good Harbor Beach.
Come for an adventure or special event. One of our guests brought a kayak and participated in the Blackburn Challenge, a 20+ mile circumnavigation of Cape Ann. We have even had a bride stay before her wedding and the wedding party come to take pictures in our beautiful garden.
Joggers love an early morning run along the scenic “Back Shore”, with its panoramic views of the ocean along the rugged coastline, all just one block away.
Families with children will especially appreciate the fenced-in outside space for children to safely play. We are very “family and kid friendly”.

There is a very active racing component in which some of our members compete with other rowing clubs through out New England, and even as far as Scilly, England.
Every September, Gloucester hosts a rowing competition off Niles Beach in Gloucester.

On May 16, 2015, the Boston Globe reported “One Last Winter Fact…” The official amount of snow tallied in Boston during the winter of 2014-2015 was 110.6 inches!

Or are we just grateful that our winter ends (or at least it is supposed to) with the Spring Equinox around March 21st? Join me now for a brief stroll down memory lane and then let’s look forward to a well deserved spring and summer…
