Enjoy four days exploring historic gems of Cape Ann and the North Shore of Massachusetts with Webb Deane Stevens Museum Executive Director Brenton Grom. The itinerary includes exclusive access to private residences and collections along with specially curated experiences at several landmark museums. Take in the stately charm of Castle Hill, the Crane family estate; tour the Thomas Riggs House with owner Barbara Lambert, a retired curator from the Museum of Fine Arts Boston; see the fine and decorative arts collections of renowned economist Dr. H. Woody Brock at his estate, Twin Quarries; and marvel at the color, texture, and sightlines at Beauport, the home of collector and interior designer Henry Davis Sleeper that inspired Henry Francis du Pont’s Winterthur.

Our home base will be the exquisite oceanfront Beauport Hotel in Gloucester. Relax and unwind after a day immersed in the past with modern hotel amenities, enjoy social time at the rooftop bar and pool with expansive views of the ocean, or get cozy with a cocktail by the open-air firepit. Evenings will offer a mixture of leisure time on your own, and group dinners, including a delectable dinner in the Ladies Dining Room of the Myopia Hunt Club.

Cap off your Summer with a deep dive into both grandeur and unsung nooks and crannies of New England history.
