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.

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.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We are glad that Comfort Cottage worked well for your family vacation as we appointed the cottage to work for families and groups. We travel a lot ourselves and always find beds to be an overlooked but important aspect of being able to rest and recharge. All mattresses and bedding was purchased when we decorated the house last year. Thank you for noticing. Also, thank you for letting us know that you found it to be clean too as a local islander performs the house cleaning and she will be glad to have the feedback. We hope you think of us again next year should you find yourself on the east coast again.

Perfect Little House

  • 5 of 5

The house was lovely. Very clean, everything was perfect. Beds comfortable and the house had lots of room. Not your typical summer rental, more like staying at someone's well cared for home. Thank you!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and noting that we are not a "typical rental". We are happy that your family chose Comfort Cottage to begin celebrate and help begin your retirement. We travel quite a bit ourselves and know comfort is important when you are not in your own home. We are glad you noticed that care we put into taking care of cottage. We hope to be able to host you again in the future.

Cute House, Clean, & Easy Walk to the Beach

  • 5 of 5

Some friends and I stayed here for a mom's weekend away. The house was cute, clean, and well-furnished. Short walk to the beach and a nice breakfast place within walking distance. Plenty of parking. I would definitely stay here again.
