Why Edward chose Merrimack Valley & Essex County

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.

Perfect Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated our daughter's grad school matriculation with our entire family at this cozy beach cottage. Perfect for our group of four couples. Arriving on a stormy night, we played board games while falling asleep to the sound of the rain, howling wind, and breaking waves.

The kichen was well-equipped as we cooked wonderful dinners each evening.

Took advantage of a sunny Saturday to BBQ hot dogs/hamburgers and eat outdoors under the lovely arbor.

Spent time window-shopping in quaint Newburyport.

Peaceful walks along the beach, just a block away.

Be sure to stop at Bob Lobsters on your way home for the best Lobster Roll you'll ever eat!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words. Although the beach is great, there is also something special about playing games or doing a puzzle as a family on a rainy day. We are happy to know you enjoyed both the inside and outside of the property. We hope to host you again and congratulations to your daughter.

comfort stay

  • 4 of 5

We had a very nice comfort stay. Everything was very well organized, and identified with pictures in the house book. It was very user friendly, close to the beach, restaurants and the general store. We also very much appreciated the great hangout space on the porch and the living room since it allows one never to feel crowded even with seven people. We would come back in a heartbeat and hope to do so!

Great House; most accommodating host; wonderful beach.

  • 5 of 5

Ed and Natalie were great. Met us at arrival, showed us the house, recommended activities and restaurants and were available by text to answer questions about the house, Plum Island, Newburyport and Gloucester. Our hosts provided everything we needed and more from welcome coffee, made beds, understandable tv remote instructions... I could go on. The prepared manual was the most comprehensive and user friendly that we have experienced.

Convenience and Comfort

  • 5 of 5

It is an understatement to say that Ed thought of everything. The kitchen was fully equipped from dishes to cookware to spices, plenty of towels, extra throw blankets, and board games. The beds were sooo comfortable, and so was the living room furniture. We booked Ed's place for a girls weekend before my sister's wedding (technically a bachelorette, but not wild), and everyone was so happy, rested, and felt at home there. We had many laughs around the homey kitchen table, and sat in the sun that shined into the living room each morning with our coffee and tea. We had 6 ladies in our group and the house was perfect for our group size. Ed was also very knowledgeable about the area, and checked in a few times. We would definitely go back!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice review. We are glad that you had a wonderful time and that we were able to host your group once another owner canceled on you. Our guests comfort is paramount while staying at Comfort Cottage so we are happy to know you found the home had everything you needed. We hope your sister has a wonderful wedding this weekend. Thank you

Great first visit to Plum Island

  • 5 of 5

Easy 1 block walk to a beautiful un-crowded beach. The house was well maintained and very clean. The kitchen was well stocked and most items fairly new. There was also a lot of personal attention and information provided by the owner. Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
