All Wedding location Ocean View Inn and Resort

Ocean View Inn and Resort
171 Atlantic Road Gloucester, MA

You’re invited to our nine and half acre resort estate on the Atlantic Ocean, featuring deluxe accommodations, fine New England dining and beautifully landscaped grounds. Our resort and conference center is open year round for the hosting of your wedding.

Our huge deck, complete with awning along with beautifully landscaped grounds, is perfect for an outdoor Wedding. Our function rooms sparkle with elegant touches and when you glance out the window you will see the awesome beauty of the Atlantic Ocean meeting with the rocky New England coastline. You have to experience this sophisticated location for your wedding. We offer exceptional New England cuisine along with excellent service and a spectacular view of the Atlantic Ocean in an elegant and charming atmosphere. Fresh produce, meats, and seafood are handpicked and purchased by our head chef in order to give you only the best at moderate prices. Guests still return to the Ocean View Inn and Resort year after year, some even making a special trip to Cape Ann to do so. We have been honored with entertainers like Anthony Newley, Michael Douglas, Billy Joel, Christie Brinkley, Robert Vaughn, Michael York, and Actor/Director Rob Reiner, to name just a few. In fact, while inspecting American fisheries, Japanese dignitaries stayed at the Ocean View Inn and Resort and gave out pearls for tips. The Ocean View Inn & Resort located on the scenic backshore of Gloucester directly on the Atlantic Ocean, is the perfect spot to hold your wedding receptions.

Our function facilities are located in and around a spacious turn of the century English Tudor estate, which was part of the summer estate for the Campbell Soup Family. In the summer, wedding parties enjoy our outside deck as well as over five acres of lawns, which can be used to house large tents to further simplify their wedding plans. The Bowlers spent five years building the Ocean View and in 1910 his home was finished, complete with an elevator, children’s playhouse, and seven car garage with a turntable to disperse parking. Family members and guests needing accommodations can choose between the turn of the century Manor House or the more modern rooms offered from one of our other seven buildings. We also offer two swimming pools, a private billiard room and a pub (full liquor license) for the enjoyment of your entire wedding party.

We can also provide you with a list of professionals whom we have worked with to help you with other details such as florists, photographers, DJ’s, bands, wedding cakes, Justices of the Peace, and limousines. Our restaurant, the Ocean’s Edge, is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and is the perfect setting for your rehearsal dinner to that special breakfast following your wedding. The Ocean View Inn And Resort has a rich history, which began in 1907 when the land was purchased by Bowler, a wealthy brewer from Worcester, from his wife’s brother named Royce. Royce had built the neighboring High Cliff Lodge previously in the late 1800’s but sold some of his land to his in-laws so the two families could spend their summers together.

The entire staff are committed to making your stay a memorable one, from the Hotel and Conference Center to the Ocean Edge Restaurant. The Ocean View Inn And Resort in historic Gloucester is located at 171 Atlantic Road on Gloucester’s beautiful “Back Shore”. Along with beautiful hotel accommodations comprised of sixty-two lovely and spacious air-conditioned rooms, we also offer a restaurant, two swimming pools, Cable TV, Bar, and a turn of the century billiards room. Our separate function facilities boast not only of elegant rooms, but also huge outdoor decks. The Ocean View Inn And Resort, formerly the summer estate of Dr. Dorrance of the Campbell Soup Company, is easily accessible from routes 128, 133, and 127. It is only 50 minutes from Logan Airport. Beautiful sandy beaches, museums, historical sites, fishing expeditions, quaint shops, and whale watching outings are only but a few of the nearby attractions. We invite you to enjoy a joyous and memorable experience at the Ocean View Inn And Resort. We accept all major credit.
