About Virginia Fruh
We have lived here for 30 years, raising our children and enjoying the town. A few years ago we rented a property through HomeAway and thought it was a great way to travel. As we travel some throughout the year we thought someone might like to have the opportunity to stay in our home and tour Newburyport, Boston, etc. while we were away. Its worked out well, visitors to our home have been very positive about their vacation experience.g
Virginia Fruh purchased this House in 1986
Why Virginia Fruh chose Newburyport
Newburyport is a great place to live or visit. With a population of 16,000 and a day trip destination for tourists there is always extra activity going on. During the summer we have a week long celebration called Yankee Homecoming; plus lots of weekend festivities.
What makes this House unique
You will find the house both roomy and comfortable. Perfect for relaxing on the deck or sitting in the sunroom after a day full of fun.

Wonderful home for family vacation
This is the first time my family and I did an air bnb and we are SOOO glad we did. The house was very clean and quaint. It had everything you could possibly need, as if you were staying at your own home. The communication with the owner was great. The town the house is in is charming and close to everything. The neighborhood was awesome. There was a patio and grill and children's toys, bikes, scooters etc. We loved the environment so much we spent a lot of our time just enjoying the scenery outside of the home. There is a welcome packet giving you instructions for everything you could possibly need in and out of the house. It was very spacious and kid/family friendly. There was even a basement full of space and activities for the kids to fully entertain themselves :) We would DEFINITELY stay again.
I am delighted that my home worked out so well for your vacation needs. Thanks for taking the time to give me such a great review.
Perfect for our group!
This is a great property in a real nice area in close proximity to the ocean. Best of all, the owner has done a great job keeping the house in top shape and understanding the needs of visitors. Everything you may need is available, which makes it easy to spend a great deal of time together around the table. Our posse ate several meals together. In addition, the owner does a great job of sharing helpful travel tips to assist in making your stay enjoyable. (Our group was three families traveling together to New England for a week in the summer of 2018.)
Perfect for kids
I can’t tell you how much easier staying somewhere kid friendly made our vacation. We didn’t have to bring the normal car full of gear we travel with and all the kids loved the basement playroom. That being said, it’s a lovely, relaxing house for adults too.
What a fantastic choice we made to stay here.
What an absolutely wonderful home!!
Our Families arrived from Hawaii and Savannah, GA to attend my Daughter and Son-in -Laws Wedding Reception and for a mini Family reunion with my children and Grands. We felt comfortable immediately upon entering the house. Everything we needed and more was available to us. My Grands absolutely loved the spacious open yard and made use of it as often as they could. The house was clean, uncluttered, warm and inviting. Virginia was very responsive to any needs we had, i.e. cleaning supplies.
I highly recommend this beautiful home to anyone looking for a clean, roomy, elegant, comfortable and inviting accomodations.
We are so Grateful we were able to stay at this lovely home!
What a fantastic vacation!
My wife and our 3 college kids made a great time of our week in the north shore area. This home was one of the best aspects of our phenomenal trip. An absolutely beautiful 2-story home, newly renovated with high-end finishes. Granite counter tops and new appliances. Hardwood floors. Comfortable coaches and easy chairs to sprawl out and watch TV with the family after a long day at the beach or touring Boston. The bedrooms are spacious and comfortably appointed. Never have I stayed in a rental property which felt like I was in my own home.
Whenever we make another trip to the north shore, we will certainly stay here again!
Downtown Newburyport is located on the Merrimack River leading into the Atlantic Ocean. Beautiful views, walk the Rail Trails, take historical tours of our downtown area. Use our home as your base for many day trips, sight see in Boston, walk through Cambridge and Harvard Square, hike mountains in New Hampshire, shop outlets in Kittery, ME, enjoy the beaches on the northshore of Massachusetts and New Hampshire.
