About the property

4 BR, 2.5 BA, sleeps 2-13

Renovated four bedroom home in historic downtown Newburyport. Home has the original 1850's exterior with a beautifully updated interior with an open floor plan featuring bamboo floors and a large, fully equipped kitchen that is perfect for large groups. We often host families in town for weddings, birthday celebrations, family reunions, etc. Please call owner with any questions.

Fantastic location. Our home is located in a residential neighborhood just a block away from the Merrimac River, The Boardwalk on the waterfront and Cashman Park with its great play ground. Several of the surrounding homes are circa 17th century that have been beautifully restored and maintained. The town center is only a 7-minute walk where you will find a beautiful waterfront area with fine restaurants, casual eateries, coffee shops, fun retail shops, New England antique shops, art galleries and the Newburyport Farmer’s Market. Park your car and walk to the best Newburyport has to offer!

During the busy summer months of July and August we only offer weekly rentals. Saturday to Saturday.

Why Sara chose Newburyport

We used to live in this home and love Newburyport and New England. We have family in the area in so we remodeled the home for our retirement.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wow! What a great time we had at this meticulously maintained house in Newburyport. This is NOT a beach house, but more of an experience in small-city living, as you can walk everywhere. The unit is spacious and nicely decorated.

Great Family Rental

  • 5 of 5

Our family (6 adults and 3 kids) loved this house--well appointed, fabulous kitchen, plenty of room, great location--overall perfect. The house is very open so we weren't tripping over each other. We watched fireworks over the water from the upstairs deck. Had most of our meals on the backyard patio. We were able to walk just across the street to a park for the kids and to a boardwalk that went along the harbor. Easy walk to all the downtown shops and restaurants. We would rent again in a hearbeat.

Great Vacation !

  • 4 of 5

Sara,

Absolutely beautiful vacation rental ! Well stocked with everything you could possibly need. Short walk to great downtown area ( Harbor area / shopping / dining /* farmers market on Sunday ). Day trips to Salem, Rockport , and Portsmouth.

Street parking was a bit of an adventure but overall more than worth it.

Thanks so much !

Lou (6/23/18 - 6/30/18 )

Perfect home for a long weekend with friends

  • 5 of 5

Four couples shared this clean, comfortable, well-equipped home for a long weekend. We enjoyed the home immensely and loved its proximity to great restaurants, shops and the riverside. Communication with the owner and property manager was easy and pleasant. Would definitely return and recommend to others!

Newburyport house with all the bells and whistles

  • 5 of 5

This house had everything available from an outdoor patio/upstairs deck, comfort of air conditioning, plenty of sleep space, bikes/beach toys, kitchen stocked for a chef, plenty of linens to crib/pack and play for children. This was a perfect house to have a family reunion and it was within minutes to a great park/waterfront. We had such a great time and appreciated the use of this amazing well kept home while we were there!!

Car: not necessary

Home is ideally located for a New England Holiday. Portsmouth, New Hampshire, the White Mountains of New Hampshire as well as the southern coast of Maine (Ogunquit, York, Kennebunkport, Portland) and Cape Ann, Cope Cod and Rhode Island are easy day trips by auto.

Home is only minutes from Interstate 95 and Highway 1. Bus and train transportation is available to take you to Boston, which is just 38 miles south (45 minutes by bus or 55 minutes by train) The train station is a very pleasant 20 minute walk from the house.

Newburyport is a quintessential New England seacoast town with fantastic Federalist architecture (among other styles) a small performing arts center, free outdoor concerts, a maritime museum, whale watches, dinner cruises, kayaking etc. Plum Island is only 4 miles or a 30 minute bike ride and contains the Parker River National Wildlife Refuge as well as miles of beautiful sandy beach; great for walking, beaching, battle boarding, surfing, kayaking and biking. Maudsley State Park is just 3 miles away.

Other Activities: Joppa Flats Education Center & Wildlife Sanctuary, Parker River National Wildlife Refuge
