Cape Ann’s Marina Resort, Gloucester

Standout Qualities: Just a 20-minute walk from downtown Gloucester, the family-owned and -operated Cape Ann’s Marina Resort is the place for storing and docking your beloved boat (it has over 265 boat slips) or relaxing by the water with family and friends. The fun pool area and clean rooms make it an easy weekend getaway. It’s close to fishing, beaches, and other salty destinations.
