There are many steps on the way to your beach vacation ~

You decide that Gloucester on Cape Ann in Massachusetts is your destination. The beaches, the authentic fishing town, the art and culture, the restaurants, the whales! Didn’t know we had all this to offer? Discover Gloucester and find out more.

Then you look around for a place to stay, you check reviews on TripAdvisor, Google and Yelp. You think, hmm, The Vista has everything we want: close to Good Harbor Beach, clean comfortable rooms and a giant heated swimming pool (not to mention stellar reviews). So you plug in your dates and check the rates. Most times you will be directed to and OTA (Online Travel Agent, i.e., Expedia). They let you believe that you are getting the very best rate and they don’t even mind that you might think that you are on the hotel’s site! But you’re not  and you’re not – not getting the best rate and not on our website. So, do your research and then call us or go to You will find more availability and the guaranteed best rate. Why? We keep rooms on hand so we don’t inadvertently double book by selling a room to an OTA at the same time we are booking a guest. This protects us and you.

Okay, you’ve found the room and the rate you like so you hit the reserve button and…Sometimes it’s easy and sometimes not so much. Solution? Call us. Not only will you speak with a friendly desk clerk but he or she will find great pleasure in finding the best room for you and give you 10% off. Booking on our website? You can still receive the discount by entering DIRECT in the promo code box.

Additionally you can find out about any fun events, festivals or concerts going on during your stay. Looking for a great restaurant? Check. Reservations for a whale watch? Got that, too. Priscilla and Yvonne have been doing this for years and they are wonderful and patient and will answer all of your questions. Garry and Carol are the newest members of our Front Desk family and they are learning quickly and they are super nice as well. All of us at The Vista love talking about all things Gloucester and making our guests happy. We look forward to chatting with you soon!
