We have our annual ladies' weekend at the Blue Shutters and it is always great. Ed, AnnMarie, Tony and Patty are delightful and helpful hosts. The view cannot be beat. Shopping, dining, and beach all within a stone's throw. The inn has that "beach cottage" feeling and outdoor space for just relaxing in the sun or shade is wonderful.

I loved it! The rooms were adorable and the beach is spectacular . The owners couldn't have been nicer and friendly. Big hugs when you leave! I'll be back. The breakfast was very good and the owners gave us valuable information. Very cozy and homey .

Very well kept. The people running it are wonderful and friendly. Close to the down town, and the view is wonderful. I came for work this week, would be a great get away place for a weekend. What I love is there is nothing comercial about this place.

The Blue Shutters Inn has two things going for it; location, right on Good Harbor Beach and the big stone fireplace in the living area. The rooms were very dated and the bed linens were cheap. The baseboard heater in my room was broken. What passed as continental breakfast was a coffee pot, stale scones in a closet, the honey...

We arrived excited after experiencing a fabulous B&B in Provincetown. What we first saw was an extremely messy yard. Red flag. Location appeared good. We packed up and as soon as we entered we were struck by a stale old house smell. Entering our deluxe room we observed a dated, tacky, noisey dirty carpeted room. The bed was nothing but...

As a Travel Agent I do travel quite a bit and I may say the Blue Shutters is a great spot. The owners Ed, AnnMarie, Patty & Tony go out of their way to make sure that everything is perfect. Cant wait to go back again and again.

My partner and I stayed here early September and it was a positive experience. I'm not a huge fan of B & B inn but once we arrived, the owners were really friendly and helpful. The house is very quaint with great views. The beach is right across the street and we stayed out on the beach until late with...

I can't say enough about this great place. Lets start with the owners. Ed, Tony, Marie, and Pat were so hospitable they were like family. They took the time to give us great information about where to go and what to do. They let us keep our car parked there and use the Inns facilities for the rest of the...

It certainly has delightful views of the beach. The layout of the hotel causes a few issues. We had chosen a room with it's own bathroom, which was across the corridor, but clearly marked as belonging to our room. We shared it with our friends next door, but kept finding other people using it. The hotel was very full when...

Steps from the beach (quite literally). Immaculate. Lovely Hosts. Great for the kids (2 and 6) with ocean waves and tidal pools to play in. Lifeguards on duty. Could not imagine a better beach getaway. We didn't need to bring much of anything except our bathing suits and sunscreen. Easy shopping within walking distance and a barbecue set up on...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Steps from Good Harbor Beach (#1 Beach in New England 2012). Minutes to downtown Gloucester (America's Oldest Fishing Port) and Rockport. Close to Cape Ann's 20+ restaurants and dozens of shops and galleries, as well as the Rocky Neck Art Colony (America's oldest and continuous operating art colony). Just 55 minutes by car or commuter rail to Boston and less than 2 hours drive from other New England destinations. We're one of the most popular spots on "the island you can drive to" (our section of Gloucester is separated from the Massachusetts mainland by the Annisquam River). ... more   less
