Samarkand Inn was the perfect location for me. I wanted to be on the water and the Inn is across the street from the beach. My room had a great view of the beach. I was also able to walk to dinner after my walk on the beach. My room was large but odly laid out. There was a nice...

During a recent business trip to the Boston Area, I took a side trip to the Gloucester beaches facing the twin light houses of Thatcher Island. The view is absolutely stunning. I decided immediately that Good Harbor beach was the next location for my wife's and my next vacation. The Samarkand Inn is the most perfectly located Inn, directly facing...

This small B & B is right on Good Harbor Beach, which is super convenient because parking for the beach is very pricey. We stayed in the smallest room, which had two twin beds, a sink, and shower. We had access to a full size bathroom in the hallway that was shared with one other room. There were nice common...

Have you ever watched a movie like Enchanted April? It's a story of four women, oh 1920-30ish, who decide to go (heaven forbid) unchaperoned on a trip to Italy.

I've been visiting Gloucester for business and pleasure since 2000. I normally stayed at another local accomodation, however, one time in the off season, my usual place was closed. The recommended "Nancy's" place down on Good Harbor Beach. After a long phone call with Nancy, I decided to give it a try. This was a few years ago. Now, it's...

I almost didn't want to post a review because it would be great to keep this place a secret. The Inn is located right across from the beach... no need to drive to the beach or pay the $25 parking fees for it. The Inn has great views, both from the rooms and from breakfast. Nancy, the hostess, was great......

We stayed at the Samarkand and had a remarkably good and relaxing time. The house is beautiful, located adjacent to Good Harbor Beach, which we could see from our room. Nancy, our hostess, was welcoming and helpful, always ready to have a conversation or to leave us alone, if we just wanted quiet. The breakfast was a festive occasion, with...

“The beach facing room with an attached sun room had an incredible sleeping capacity (3 twins, 1 double), but is still ideal for a couple because of the privacy and spectacular view.”
