Ever been on a Whale Safari? Join one of Gloucester's Whale Watch trips to visit these majestic animals in their natural habitat.

Start or follow up with a lobster-bake dinner at the Gloucester House Restaurant. Your lobster bake includes lobster, clam chowder, coleslaw or fries, dessert and a beverage. For your children under 13, there is a special meal choice suited to their tastes. There is a two night minimum for this package. Just ask for or click 'Discover the Whales' when booking your reservation.

Please stay a while, don't go home yet, we're still having fun! Plan ahead and save. Ask for the Fourth Night Free plan and stay three nights at the standard rate and get your fourth night free. Because this offer is so good, it is not available for all rooms and only at certain times of the year. You cannot add any other discounts or rate plans on to this stay and we cannot reserve a specific room number or room location, just a room type. Valid for new reservations only and non-commissionable, so you must book direct. Just ask for or click on 'Fourth Night Free' when booking your reservation.
Let us help you make your stay more magical. Schooner Sails and Whale Watching are Gloucester's unique experiences. These can be booked and billed while making your reservation or during your stay.
