We recently had the pleasure of painting Gloucester, MA’s own Castle Manor Inn – an amazing local landmark that’s worth a look in more ways than one. It’s a restored Victorian inn built in 1900 (so a real treat for lovers of that era) and it’s still taking guests today under the watchful eyes of owners Don and Laura Baker who have turned it into a North Shore, MA destination.
Isn’t that just gorgeous?
Less than one mile from Stage Fort Park and the harbor, this getaway spot offers a relaxing view of the inland waterway from its event-sized deck. The beach? Is just a short distance away, as are the local shops and eateries Gloucester is known for. As local getaways go, it’s a staycation that feels more like a vacation thanks not only the menu of amenities the Bakers have created but also the concierge staff.
You may think you know the North Shore but a stay at the Castle Manor Inn can change your mind. They can help you find destinations and experiences you might never have encountered in your day to day.
For out-of-towners, staying at the Castle Manor Inn is a great way to experience the Massachusetts coast because you get easy access into Boston and everything the North Shore has to offer. On days you want to stick around Gloucester and the surrounding towns, you can have a relaxing breakfast, then take in the local culture, dining, history, outdoor recreation, and shopping.
Feeling adventurous? Staff can help coordinate everything from surfing lessons to historic schooner excursions and more, making it easy to experience everything this region has to offer.
Of course, this is your getaway so if you’d prefer to sleep in, hit the shops or the beach, then come back to the Inn later on for a glass of wine and a nibble the Bakers and their staff are delighted to help make that happen, too.
Planning a wedding? The Castle Manor Inn can accommodate up to 120 guests on its grand deck – or say your vows in the picturesque gazebo while gazing over the water. And the best part? Friends and family coming from afar can stay right at the Inn!
The Inn features ten large rooms and suites in the main building, as well as sixteen detached units, and a full-service restaurant serving wonderful breakfasts and dinners daily. For more information or to see photos of the Castle Manor Inn, visit http://www.castlemanorinn.com.
