Wonderful Visit at the Vista

Rated 5 out of 5

Just the place for a relaxing getaway. The rooms are clean, the staff is very helpful and welcoming. Looking over Good Harbor Beach is so beautiful and there are plenty of things to do in Gloucester and the entire Cape Ann area.

You won’t be disappointed!

We were so pleasantly surprised at the Vista. It was the reverse of what you often see: a glitzy surface and a disappointment once you get inside. It is not luxury, but it is comfortable, a roomy room that is insanely clean and well maintained, ultra-convenient to everywhere, very reasonably priced, and all of the people working there are super nice and helpful. The pool is a nice bonus, and so is the beach proximity. The only thing I could take issue with is that the internet is kinda slow in the room, but take your laptop out on your private deck (!) and it improves, plus it’s a nicer place to work. Higly recommended!

Very friendly people welcome the guests.

Room was spacy enough for five people.

Entire establishment very clean and in very good condition.

Location very nice with great view over the beach and ocean.

Two supermarkets in very close proximity.

Gloucester or Rockport easily accessible.

Only small downpoint, which goes for all US hotels: Air conditioning machines are constantly loud and too cold.

We can’t say enough of how much we love The Vista after coming here for 50 years. Besides being in the best location the host, Laura & her team couldn’t be more accommodating. Michael is either at the desk or ready to help with any problem as calm as could be is a gem. Priscilla at the desk is so welcoming. Either the beautiful heated pool, the yummy breakfast on their gorgeous patio, or the comfy quiet rooms will convince you to come back every year. Thank you Laura for another memorable visit.

We love the Vista!! Walking distance to Good Harbor; a pool; rooms are spotless and have a small kitchenette and balconies! What’s not to love?? And, the people that work there are all so nice and welcoming! They also offer a free breakfast on a lovely patio.

We’ve been coming here for years, ever since our kids were toddlers and it just keeps getting better!
