A private home with double bed and shared bathroom. Access to living room, dining room & kitchen. 10 min walk to downtown Gloucester, restaurants, bars & harbor. 5 mins walk to train and supermarket, 5 min drive to stunning beaches

The space

My home is cute, colorful and comfortable with hardwood floors throughout. The private bedroom has a very comfortable double bed, dresser and built-in closet. The bathroom and the rest of the house is shared with me and my very chilled out cat, Lola.

There is a small yard out the back with patio, table and chairs which you are free to use. There is a washer and dryer in the basement. There is street traffic because of its location. So please don't expect it to be totally quiet.

My home is very convenient to downtown Gloucester which has lots of great restaurants, bars and shops. It's also within walking distance of the fishing harbor, lovely Stacey Boulevard and Stage Fort park and smaller beaches. Magnificient Good Harbor beach is a 5min drive or a 30min walk and Wingarseek beach is about a 7 min drive. The train station (commuter rail which goes to Boston) and the supermarket are just a 2 min walk away.

I'm a yoga teacher and do Sound Healing Journeys so I offer private sessions in my home if you are interested. During the summer I teach public classes on the beach and also at studios around town. I have a piano and guitar in case you play.

My cat, Lola, is super mellow and quiet. She will not bother you whatsoever.

Guest access

You will have access to the living room, dining room and kitchen as well as the yard and laundry facilities. The kitchen can be lightly used. Street Parking is available.

Interaction with guests

I'm more than happy to give recommendations of places to go and see etc and I like to respect other peoples space and privacy. I have a varied schedule and do some work from home.

Elaine was a great host. Her house is very close to the commuter rail and only a few blocks from downtown. The room was comfortable and clean.

Cozy room, good location, good value. Elaine was cordial and a good host but we didn't interact with her very much since we came in late and left early the next day

As we saw in the reviews that the place is noisy, we brought earplugs and didn't get any trouble with the noise. Elaine is a very friendly and nice host. Her house is close to the T station and stores. Very convenient location. Everything was great. I recommend to stay in Elaine's place.

Elaine was just perfect and her house it's beautiful cozy and awesome if you need to stay in the magic town of Rockport/ Gloucester. She will teach you all you'll need to know about the town and how to get to the great places. She is amazing as well she makes you feel. I will stay in her places again. Hopefully can do it soon. ♡

Elaine keeps a lovely home, convenient on-foot to local restaurants and downtown Gloucester. A perfect experience, with two excellent hosts (including Lola, of course!)

Had a lovely stay with Elaine, went to beach yoga on Saturday morning, and she was gracious in showing us around!
