Why Edward chose Newburyport
After staying many times with friends, I could not pass up the opportunity to own a home on this laid back island. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

The cottage had everything we could have asked for! The kitchen was well stocked, so we were able to cook with ease. The fireplace added to the cozy vibe. The beach was a short walk away. Wifi and cable were a plus for the rainy day we had! We had a very relaxing time, and the location was perfect! The cottage is well cared for!
Thank you for your kind review. The fireplace is the best on the unexpected chilly days. I especially like to sit on the leather recliner and read on days like that. We are pleased to have had everything you needed during your stay and hope to host you for another relaxing time in the future.
This adorable cottage was not as described. . .it was even better! I stayed here while visiting my family on Plum Island for the Thanksgiving weekend. The home was fully equipped with everything we needed for a perfect weekend getaway - there were even coffee pods for the maker. There were plenty of towels and they were soft and fluffy. The beds were super comfy and I slept great every night. There is plenty of parking and the oyster shell pathway added to the beachy vibe of this cottage. Though I didn’t meet Edward in person, he was a great host; because I had an earlier flight and the home was available, I was able to check in earlier which was really nice. He also text me to make sure I arrived safely and everything was as expected. I would definitely recommend the cottage and stay again (perhaps in the summer as it’s a great, year-round place).
This was my first experience using a vacation rental service/site. If all experiences go as well as the one I had with Placid Plumtucket Cottage, I will absolutely do it again. Thank you.
Great little house, wonderful location
The cottage is very comfortable and charming. Perfect home base for our birding weekend. We highly recommend for a relaxing holiday close to the beach, nature, and villages with great dining options.
We love it as we know it!
We love the place and will be back next year
Placid Plumtucket Cottage is perfection!
The cottage is beautiful and welcoming, with everything you might need! The location is amazing, and just a few steps from a beautiful beach. The owner was wonderful, and made the overall experience very pleasant. In fact, the whole island was incredibly beautiful and relaxing, and everyone was warm and friendly! We will absolutely be back to Plum Island, and hope to stay in this cottage!!
Landlord Ed was very gracious and accomodating
This charming, new, modern cottage with everything you need for a stress free escape is located on Plum Island and is just a block from the beach.
Plum Island, Massachusetts is an island located off the northeast coast of Massachusetts, north of Cape Ann. It is a barrier island approximately 11 miles (18 km) in length. The island is named for the wild beach plum shrubs that grow on its dunes.
The island has a national wildlife refuge, restaurants and of course miles of beautiful sandy beaches.
Plum Island offers miles of public sandy beaches and the Parker River National Wildlife Refuge, home to over 800 species of birds, plants and animals on 4,662 acres. Sandy Point on the southern tip of Plum Island is a State Park and a wonderful place to swim, sun yourself or go tidepooling.
Massachusetts Audubon Society's Joppa Flats Education Center is located just over the bridge from the island. They organize bird watching tours and other educational programs for adults and family.
