ABOUT PLUM ISLAND. Plum Island is an 11 mile long barrier island just off the shore of Newburyport, Mass. The island faces the Atlantic Ocean and is separated from the mainland by a causeway that crosses spectacular tidal marshes and the Parker and Merrimac Rivers. Most of Plum Island is part of the 4,600 acre Parker River Wildlife Refuge. The remaining part, the northern end of the island is populated with an eclectic mix of cottages, 'architectural mistakes' and trophy homes that truly make it movie set worthy! Just steps away from any home is the beach, ten gorgeous, pristine, unspoiled miles of it. The sunrises, the sunsets, and the stargazing are stunning.

Plum Island has one small, very luxurious beach front hotel, a handful of shops and 3 restaurants, all within walking distance from the cottage. The historic town of Newburyport is the quintessential New England town with a very sophisticated selection of shops, restaurants, galleries and theaters. Day trips abound, as does anything else you would want to do; golf, tennis, boating, kayaking, whale watching, horseback riding, yoga, spas and spa treatments, antiquing, out let shopping etc.

Legend says that Plum Island is a one of a very few Native American sacred sites in North American for healing. I choose to believe this is true. To those that feel it, Plum Island has a very seductive charm and allure.

We just spent a rest filled weekend at this lovely home. Two busy Mom's took time out to refill our cups. We walked on the beach, napped in the most comfy beds with lovely linens and found fabulous places to dine with out having to leave Plum Island. When we did leave the Island there were endless things to do in Newburyport. Many shops to poke through and more great restaurants. This home is very clean and has everything you could need for a beach vacation.

My husband and I just returned from an incredible weekend at the cottage on Plum Island. The house was so clean and was decorated beautifully. The roof top deck is a slice of heaven and the master bedroom makes you feel like you are sleeping in a cloud. Watch the sunrise from bed in the mornings. Short walk to beach, views of ocean front and back. Mad Martha's (delicious artsy spot) three doors down for a delicious breakfast and great coffee. I would definitely return with my kids and recommend this house. Thank you for sharing your home!

I wanted to thank you for your wonderful beach cottage. We loved it with all the new ammenities, funky and fun furnishings, and the awesome decks. My boys called the top deck "the tree house." We got a kick out of the cool "No Evacuation Possible" painting. Plum Island, we assume. We really enjoyed our stay and had a great reunion with my husband's family.

I just wanted to take a moment and let you know how much I loved staying at your home! We all did, and had the best time. I hope everything was in order when you went up this week (or if you are still there!). Thank you again – and your home there is truly truly a special place.

AN EMAIL FROM A SUMMER 2007 RENTOR

Hi Eleanor,
Your cottage is wonderful and we love the use of color! We hope we put everything back where we found it. We moved a lot up to unreachable places where our 2 year old couldn't reach. We also enjoyed working with you and thank you for indulging our many questions. We've visited the Cape Ann area many times since moving away from MA and we've found it rare that a place is everything it is advertised to be. Yours certainly is! I really can't think of anything that would have made our stay more enjoyable - unless you can control the weather too :).

Thank you for following up. We appreciate the opportunity to provide feedback and in this case it's all good!

Thank You,
Erik
