Great Experience in Every Way

  • 5 of 5

My family couldn't wait to get back to this cottage. We stayed once before and it was perfect: well- stocked, clean, cozy, comfortable. The beach is close enough to walk to barefoot. You can hear the waves at night! The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful. Karen is fantastic to deal with: responsive, friendly and honest. I could not recommend this cottage highly enough-- your family will have a great time!

pleasant stay right near the beach

  • 5 of 5

We have been vacationing on Plum Island for 8 years, and this is our first in this neat little place. We really enjoyed our time there, its comfortable and cute, and we loved having AC for the 90 degree days. We stayed two weeks, went to the beach (a two minute walk) every day but two, grilled our dinner on the deck every night but the two it rained, and just generally had a great time. The cottage is clean and just rustic enough, with the right amenities for a pleasant vacation. We definitely want to come back!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was my second stay at this cottage and it was as great as the first time 5 years ago. The place was immaculate and I had a great time relaxing here with my husband this time. I finally got to meet Karen and once again she was very helpful with suggestions for places to eat and things to do. The house had everything we could want and was a great place to relax on a cold rainy day. Listening to the waves at night was a great way to fall asleep. Hope to get back again! Thanks, Karen, for sharing your place with us.

never again

  • 1 of 5

Stayed here after my wedding for a few days. I have to say that the place needed a good cleaning and a lot of updating. The air conditioner was old and blew out warm air, half the windows were broken and didn't stay up, beds are old and uncomfortable, deck

is about to collapse, no spare gas tank for grill. Had to go out and spend another $50 for a gas tank. They required $100 cleaning deposit which I haven't received back after completing the long list of cleaning you had to do prior to departing. My wife left her diamond earrings there and the owner Karin said she would get back to me. She has never returned my multiple emails. Its been three weeks and no deposit and no earrings. I would think that renting and wanting people to come back, the owner Karin would respond and be a responsible owner. I would not recommend this place to anyone. I guess she needs the deposit more than I do

Owner's Response: I am responding to my first negative review in 10 years. I take my reviews seriously and I don't like being accused of things that are not true. Yes, I forgot to leave the extra propane tank, I reimbursed them for that plus their cleaning deposit. As they say, you can't please everyone. The majority of my vacationers are repeats. I ask that you read the rest of my reviews, they speak for themselves.

Cozy & Relaxing Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at this cottage on Plum Island. The house was clean & included all the comforts of home. The neighborhood is very quiet....perfect for relaxing. The beach is beautiful & just a short walk from the house. The owner was very responsive & a pleasure to deal with. I am looking to future visits to PI & Newburyport.

One of Plum Island's Bargains!

  • 4 of 5

My husband, daughter and I had a very enjoyable stay at Simmons Cottage in July. A very nice place with all of the comforts of home--it really has everything you need (and even some things you didn't know you'd need)! The owner, Karen, was great to deal with and very responsive. The beach is at the end of the street, just a few minutes walk and was never crowded. The cottage and location provide a good atmosphere to just kick back and relax. We really appreciated the fact that given it's a comfortable cottage next to the beach it is very affordable, too.
