Our passion for landscape designs allowed us to create a multitude of perrenial gardens and ponds, each offering different yet unique settings.

Michael J. Dirkes or Cynthia Ryan purchased this house in 1999

Even though we are minutes from everything you can enjoy praceful down time in this newly renovated rental. Fully equipped kitchen and bath, all linens included!

Perfect setup for a couple that desire a clean, remote setting with the feel of home but yet be in two major cities within the hour.

The benefits are simple: 3 minutes and you can be on the beach or downtown Newburyport, yet find yourself back reading on a hill overlooking the gardens.

Within 90 minutes, you can be in the middle of all the

NH & Maine mountains for skiing or snowmobiling.

Lovely place!

(English version below)
Wir haben im Juli 2014 zu zweit eine tolle Woche in Newbury und Umgebung verbracht. Die im Untergeschoss befindliche Ferienwohnung ist mit allem ausgestattet, was man braucht und brauchen könnte, z.B. auch mit einer charmanten VHS-Sammlung. :-) Die Einrichtung, besonders im Schlafzimmer, ist liebevoll und gemütlich und das Bad sehr geräumig. Waschmaschine und Trockner standen auch zur Verfügung. Zum Haus gehört ein wunderschöner, ruhiger Garten mit vielen Sitzgelegenheiten. Den kleinen Pool und Grill durften wir auch mitbenutzen. Die Eigentümer sind sehr sympathisch, unglaublich hilfsbreit und haben gute Tipps auf Lager, z.B. für das Frühstück (Stephanie's Village Pancake House in Rowley!) Man ist mit dem Auto (Parkplatz vor dem Haus) schnell in Newburyport, wo es u.a. eine Menge Einkaufsmöglichkeiten gibt. Wer frisches Obst und Gemüse vom Bauern möchte, braucht nur 1 Minute mit dem Auto zur Tender Crop Farm fahren. Ansonsten einfach Michael oder Cindy fragen.
Kleiner Tipp: Wer empfindliche Ohren bzw. einen leichten Schlaf hat, sollte trotzdem Ohropax einpacken, da man aufgrund der amerikanischen Bauweise (Holz) ein paar Geräusche aus dem oberen Stockwerk hören kann.
Danke an Michael und Cindy für alles!

We went for a week in July 2014 and spent a wonderful time in Newbury and around. The apartment in the basement offers anything you need or could need, e.g. a charming collection of films on VHS. :-) You can see that a lot of love for detail went into the furnishing. The bathroom is very big and a washing machine and a dryer are available there, too. The beautiful and quiet garden offers plenty of seating and you may even use the little pool or the BBQ. Michael and Cindy are very nice and incredibly helpful landlords and can offer great tips (Go to Stephanie's Village Pancake House in Rowley for breakfast!). Don’t be afraid to ask them. It’s only 5 minutes to Newburyport (for any shopping) and 1 minute to Tender Crop Farm (for fresh produce). Just one suggestion if you are a light sleeper: You might want to use earplugs, since you can hear some noise from upstairs.
Thank you, Michael and Cindy, for everything!

Owner's Response: We are very appreciative of their review, both German & English !

In matters regarding the noise above, we have since bought a new
bed (Cindy's thank you) which now, does not offer those squeaky
noises that the old mattress made when sleeping.

We also are planning to sound proof the celling this winter with blown in foam, so that every beam is rock solid.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Michael and Cindy's lovely home for a fairly large family wedding in Newburyport. It was a great decision to choose this very comfortable space. The back yard was great ... nice woods beyond the house ...fire pit! Our regret is that we weren't able to spend more time there ! Beautiful area to be in. Newburyport's "downtown" is a very lovely and beautifully restored historic port...well worth visiting. Michael and Cindy were very gracious hosts with plenty of ideas for adventure or relaxation in the area. We would love to come back!

We went for a week in the beginning of July. We had such a great experience, and Mickeal and Cindy are very kind persons. They were always there to give us explanation, directions, share all the beach stuff (so we ain't bring them from Montréal). The place is quiet, and full of nature. It was a pleasure to meet them and to use the appartement, they arranged for the Customer. The place is at the middle of every where. We went shop in Maine, we had a great journey in Boston, and most of the time we were at the beach, which you have a lot of choice, dependly, which kind you like. We will return, as soon, as the live gets us in this beautiful part of the country.

Thanks Micheal and Cindy :)

Owner's Response: Stephanie's family made full use of their time by exploring the surrounding area, including the great shopping in Kittery Maine.

We hope that her new cookware set......pans out ! Ha Ha !

We are so glad that their girls enjoyed the bunk bed and TV system but still question as to how the understood English shows?

Cindy & I are looking into offering multiple language selections with our cable provider.

Amazing romantic getaway

  • 5 of 5
We could not have asked for a better place and experience. It was like staying in our own little apartment, it is fully equipped with anything and everything you might need. The kitchen had lots of pots and pans, cutlery, plates, etc to cook with. Mike and his wife were amazing hosts. They even gave us access to beach chairs, fishing poles, beach umbrellas, etc. They were also able to recommend some amazing restaurants (Michael's Harborside) and beaches. They have done amazing work with their backyard and nature trail. I highly recommend their rental!

Great location for exploring the North Shore

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for a week at Michael and Cindy's lovely place and recommend it for anyone wanting to explore the North Shore. My husband and young daughter (2 years) were visiting family in the area and we were looking for something near Newburyport with a little more space and "home away from home" feel than your typical hotel room provides and that would be more family-friendly than a lot of B&Bs. The use of the lovely yard was a great draw for us too, as toddlers are an active bunch and we really enjoy grilling. This place was a great find and just what we were looking for. The apartment was clean and Cindy set out lots of toys, puzzles and books to keep our daughter entertained for the time spent inside. There's a washer and dryer too, always a big bonus when traveling. The yard and gardens are quite peaceful and you can really feel at home out there. Michael even started a fire for us in the fire pit and got his guitar out to sing "You are my sunshine" for our daughter (one of her favorites). The location is great for exploring the beaches, farms and orchards in the area and downtown Newburyport has everything you need. We'd definitely recommend a trip to the nearby Tendercrop farm for a nice gourmet picnic and breakfast at Mad Marthas on Plum Island. Choose this location if you're looking for something laid-back, relaxed, family-friendly and with more personality and friendliness than you'll find at a hotel. Have fun.

Owner's Response: We thank Jill for the wonderful comments but she neglected to mention that the weather was "the Key" to her family's OCTOBER visit.

Normally a "hit or miss" weather month, their week was the best Oct week I have seen in over 15 years and they went to the beach 3 days !

Of course what Cindy & I really enjoyed was the fact that they could "Host a outing/party" of nearby family & friends, in the backyard and being that they are from Munich, Germany...well that is special.

We wish them well and hope they return soon.

The best for family vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5
We've stayed 8 nights wiht our 2 kids (2-4 years old). It was the best choice for us. The place are very nice. We have everything we need for the beach. The have a lot of furnitures in the house and the exterior is so wonderful. The location is very good and not far from many activities. Micheal and Cindy, the owners are so exceptionnal. We really enjoy our vacation and we recommended anytime. If we going another time in this area, for sure will contact them for a another stay.

Owner's Response: We thank Anni for her enthusiastic response !

She booked with us earlier than most people and was excited, back
then, as well as during her family stay.

They covered most of the North Shore area and even taught
us about a fun daytrip in Maine, at the York Animal kingdom,
which our grandchild thoroughly enjoyed...as did I.

Here I thought that I was "the guide" for the area and it
goes to show that...you can learn something new everyday !

Thanks
