The space
For the more adventurous traveler:
Step back in time with this 60's Boho, eclectic studio. Creative objets d'art and romantic lighting creates a very cozy, dark atmosphere (a petite solarium off the living room brings some natural light.) Two walls are covered in vintage, sculpted carpeting. Charming outdoor covered deck and garden areas allow for dining al fresco.

Steps away from the working waterfront and ideally situated in the heart of E. Gloucester between two beautiful beaches (Good Harbor and Niles). Walking distance to downtown, waterfront restaurants, Rocky Neck Art Colony, North Shore Art Assoc. and Gloucester Stage Co. Close to train (1 mile). Right in the middle of all the action while quiet and privately tucked away.

LIVING ROOM - Couch, oversized-chair, lots of books. No A/C (2 fans keep the studio nicely cooled.)

SLEEPING AREA is located at back of living room in secluded corner with a full-size (double) bed and comfy memory foam mattress.

PETITE SOLARIUM - Small area off living room with twin bed. Strong morning light from slanted roof with large glass-like ceiling (for early risers).

KITCHEN - Small, fully equipped with coffeemaker, gas range, fridge, microwave, toaster, washer/dryer and seating for 2.

UNIQUE BATH - European flair bathroom boasts a large, old-fashioned claw-foot tub with a hand-held shower and skylight above tub (NO STAND-UP SHOWER).

OUTDOOR COVERED DECK for dining al fresco. Seating for 2.

PRIVATE GARDEN - Lovely shaded garden with wrought iron patio set.

LOCATION: 149 E. Main Street, Gloucester, MA

Location

Gloucester, Massachusetts, United States

Tucked away yet very central to all activities, restaurants & shopping. You choose! It is perfectly situated between beautiful Good Harbor Beach and Niles Beach (15 min. walk in either direction). Very close to Rocky Neck Art Colony, downtown, shopping and restaurants. While a car is recommended, it is not necessary. The fascinating, working waterfront is only steps away.

Host: T.C.R. Trust, Richard Emmanuel My unrelenting quest to explore spiritual consciousness has been the central element of my life’s journey. During the failed youth revolution of the 60’s, I attended The Catholic University of America in Washington D.C., studying comparative religion, philosophy, and sacred architecture. I decided to part ways in my fourth year and used my remaining college tuition to purchase an abandoned Church built in1800’s. In 1968 I created an experimental church. “The Church”, as it became known, continues to provide provocative stimulation on subjects of spirituality and the quest for the understanding of human consciousness. Walk -in art installations representing these central themes are juxtaposed and transcended with ancient sculptures of Hindu and Buddhist Art. I reside in “The Rectory” and it is part of the church complex where he has created a unique and charming retreat/studio space. It is a space to welcome people from all over the world to come and relax, rejuvenate and contemplate their journey on Earth.
