We enjoy walking our two dogs on the beach and all around the small streets of the island. We love the proximity of the house to the Parker River Wildlife Refuge and to Newburyport for shopping, dining, and other activities. We enjoy cooking, so having Tendercrop Farm just down the road provides us with a great variety of gourmet meats and produce. In town we love the Sunday Farmer’s market at the Tannery; it’s a great place to pick up dinner and peruse the local bookstore and shops. Best of all when we don’t feel like cooking we can walk to the Plum Island Grille, Mad Martha’s or the Beach Coma

After renting this house for two winters we fell in love with it and Plum Island. In fact, we liked it so much here that we bought the house. Now we’ve made this place our home for the winters. In the summer we retreat to our lake house so we really have the best of both worlds.

The most distinct feature about the beach house is the roof-top deck with its breath-taking views of the island. Additionally, the house is located on a quiet side street (open at both ends), so there is very little traffic/noise and the yard is completely fenced-in which is ideal for families with small children or pets. It's a short two minute walk to the closest beach path where the beach is rarely crowded.

NEW ENGLAND PARADISE!

  • 5 of 5
This home exceeded our expectations in SO many ways. Fresh and clean as a whistle without seeming 'hotel sterile'. The open floor plan is perfect for socializing. The lower deck great space for BBQ/ meals although the crown jewel is the upper deck with panoramic ocean/basin views. Every detail has been well though out here. Beach chairs/umbrella/s and toys ext. for beach fun. Well equipped kitchen. I stumped my wife by finding cookie sheets AND electric hand mixer when she wanted to bake cookies! The location is also ideal on the south (quiet) side of Plum Island off of the main road where we felt very safe with our 6 year old. Just booked a return trip and hope to make this an annual!

VERY COMFORTABLE & RELAXING

  • 5 of 5
Paula & John made the whole experience smooth & easy. A wonderful week in this Plum Island home! We had a great time walking the beach, riding bikes, cooking dinner, and enjoying the decks. One day was in the 90's and we had to go into the water to cool off- what a treat for September! & really good to have air conditioning too! Everything in the house was organized, clean & accessible which made our stay very easy and relaxing. Location is convenient to sanctuary (we took bikes) and Newburyport. Very thoughtful hosts!

PLUM ISLAND PERFECT

  • 5 of 5
We've rented this cottage for 4 years now and plan on going back in 2014. Like the title says...it's the perfect place to vacation. We rented from Brad & Maura for the first 3 years and they went out of their way to accomodate our needs and make our vacation a very pleasant one. We were concerned when we found out they were selling it as they were great landlords. As it turns out the new owners, John & Paula are just as accomodating and very pleasant to rent from. They were very attentive to any of our needs and made us feel very welcome during our stay. The updates and changes they made makes it an even more delightful place. The beach is a 10 minute walk and is never crowded, great places to eat(Plum Island Grille, Beach Coma, Martha's) and it's very quiet at night! Newburyport(3+ miles away) has plenty to offer as far as great restaurants, shopping, bike rentals, street vendors and entertainment. We also enjoy walking/bike rides in the National Wildlife Refuge. We would highly recommend renting from John & Paula.

GREAT COTTAGE!

  • 5 of 5
This is the 2nd time we stayed in this home. This season the kitchen was remodeled. The updates are very nice. The photo of the living room needs to be updated because they added a very nice Samsung LED TV and a Bose sound bar and sub woofer. The sound on that thing is amazing (I actually might buy one now). The fenced yard was great for our dog. The back deck is great for bbq'ing. The roof deck has amazing views. The beach is just a short walk away. The waves can be big, so if you are looking for calmer water (we have two small children) there is a nice beach with no waves at the very northern tip of the island. The entrance to the Parker River Wildlife Refuge is right down the street. Great place to run, walk, ride a bike, and check out the wildlife. The beaches there are beautiful too. Newburyport is less than 10 minutes away with great shops and places to eat. Also nearby is Hampton Beach. If you drink beer, smoke cigarettes and have tattoos, I highly recommend checking it out. All kidding aside it does have fun things like arcades, beach shops, weekly fireworks and a casino with table games. A little farther is Portsmouth NH, which is another great town with cool shops and restaurants. Kittery ME is just over the border from there with outlet shopping. I would highly recommend this cottage, Plum Island and the area in general. Great place to vacation!

GREAT LOCATION ON PLUM ISLAND

  • 5 of 5
This was the perfect spot for my husband and me, our two grown kids and our grandson. The house is a short walk to the beach and Paula and John did everything to make our stay perfect. From the phone call while we were on route, to the welcome note and bar of Plum Island soap - a great place for a relaxing week on the beach. The house is comfortable and well stocked and while it only has one bathroom, it has a great outdoor shower that is perfect for cleaning off after a day at the beach. And there are lots of fun things to do in Newburyport.

PLUM ISLAND BEACH COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
This was my second time staying at the cottage and it was better than ever. Lots to do in the Newburyport area and beyond. Since I travel a lot with my dogs it was great to be able to have them with me on vacation since there is a fenced yard. Everything you need is provided and the beach house itself is immaculate. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a great place to stay since it so close to the beach and Reserve and great restaurants and shopping in town.

Map

Car: recommended

Plum Island is a wonderful vacation spot for couples and families! The 9 mile stretch of beach is one of the most beautiful in the country. We take great pride in ensuring our beach house is idyllic and your vacation there is memorable.

On Plum Island itself, there are fishing, harbor, and whale watching expeditions (northern side of island); the Parker River Wildlife Refuge for bird watching (southern side of island); the Plum Island Grill (dinner); Beach Coma (casual lunch/dinner); Mad Martha's Beach Cafe (breakfast/lunch); and a convenience and package store. The Plum Island Airport, on the causeway leading to the Island, provides aerial plane tours.

Newburyport is a just 3.5 miles away, where there are quaint shops, art galleries, outdoor concerts, live theatre, many restaurants, ample activities and special summer events. Great day trips include Boston, Gloucester, Rockport or historic Portsmouth, NH. There's something for everyone!
