Idyllic seaside holiday

  • 5 of 5

My family of three loved our stay at Plumtucket. The cottage was spotless and beautiful. Libby was available for questions even though she was on vacation herself! We cannot say enough about how relaxing and lovely our stay was and would return for another stay on Plum Island.

Plumtucket Thrilled!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 2 week stay at Plumtucket in August. The cottage has all the amenities you could ask for. Everything is of the highest quality. Plumtucket is located on the quiet side of the island and is a pleasant change from the constant stream of traffic on Northern Blvd. The cottage has its own secluded outdoor area which is great for morning coffee and evening grilling. Libby really goes out of her way to insure your stay is a positive experience. We would definitely recommend Plumtucket and plan to return in the future. Thanks for a great vacation! Jim & Lina

Great Area, Great house will do this again next year

  • 5 of 5

The owner Libby and her husband was very friendly and courteous as well as very helpful to our needs. Welcomed us with a lovely wine at home. The house is very cute, well build and extremely clean. both bedrooms are nice size with nice size closets, and extra sheets and pillows. There is a nice backyard (which the other houses in the same location does not) with 2 barbecues. Finished basement has everything you will need for a summer vacation, from beach chairs to umbrellas to bikes to canoe and more...

Location is great, 3 minutes walk to the beach, parking available in front, very quiet area. Must be great for winter since the house also has nice size fireplace.

We, as a family with an 8 year old son had one of our best summer vacations in this place and the house we stayed was the most important part of this vacation since we are very particular about our comfort and hygiene. This house gave us both and more...

Thanks Libby & Jim, hope to see you next year again....

Stayed 3 X and Would Do It Again in a Heartbeat

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed 3 times here August of 2014 and 2015 and Jan. - May 2015. Landlords (Libby and Jim) are fantastic, real people who really care about guest experience. Cottage is immaculate, clean, modern and well maintained with all the amenities (A/C, fireplace, grille, private outdoor dining area, laundry, etc). Location is fantastic, bikes provided for access to entire island and reservation. Very short walk to wonderful beach and PI Grille for drinks/dinner. Sunsets, birds, all the magic that a barrier island has to offer. Super area of PI, don't hesitate to rent here, great fun and memories are made here.

Rented 3 Times, Would Do It Again in a Heartbeat

  • 5 of 5

I have rented this cottage 3 times from Libby and Jim, twice for the month of August (2014 & 2015) and also Jan. - May of 2015. I highly recommend this rental. Landlords are fantastic, real people who genuinely care about guests having the best experience possible and taking care of guest's needs. Every aspect of the cottage is well done and maintained and kept clean to a "T". A/C, gas fireplace, fantastic lower level outside dining area, grill, laundry, bikes, anything you could want !! The location is to die for. Easy short walk to fantastic beach, bike anywhere on island and reservation, walk to "The Grille", a great PI restaurant/bar, beach walks are awesome. Magical location to kick back and enjoy all that Plum Island has to offer, sunsets, birds, the wonder of a barrier island. Very pleasant neighborhood. Don't hesitate to rent this cottage. Family memories are made here !!
