Why Edward chose Newbury

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.

A lovely and quiet getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at several houses on Plum Island, and this was by far the nicest. Very clean, comfortable, and well laid out. It had everything we needed plus a few fun extras like board games and a kite. I hope we have a chance to come back. We'd stay here again in a minute! Many thanks for a lovely, relaxing stay!!

Can't Wait to Go Back!!

  • 5 of 5

The house is a great location! Steps away from the basin, which is perfect for kayaking and a 5 minute walk to the beach and Mad Martha's (great breakfast!). The house is very clean and comfortable and very well stocked. The laundry was a huge plus! We loved hanging out and playing games on the large porch! We are looking forward to our next stay at Comfort Cottage!

Little Slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at the Comfy Cottage! It's a quick walk to the beach and the Basin. It was also super convenient being just around the corner from Plum Island Provisions. We've stayed at many different rentals over the years with our 2 kids and the whole family agreed this place was perfect for us. Our daughter even said this was the best cottage we've ever had! We will definitely be back.

Very clean beds are comfy

Great house and location in a quiet neighborhood.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the comment on the beds. I travel extensively for work and nothing is worse than a tired old mattress after a long day. So rather than moving old furniture from our home to the beach like so many other owners do, you will find that we purchased new mattresses and almost all the furniture is just a few years old. We hope to host you again!

Comfort cottage review

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay on a hidden gem of Plum Island. The house is in a perfect location. It provided the comforts of home in a very quiet location. Loved the enclosed porch and outdoor furniture!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great feedback. The house is close to the beach and the basin as well as Mad Martha's restaurant which is one of the reasons we love the location. We continually try to improve our guests stay so we added the outdoor lounge furniture this summer. We are glad you enjoyed the island and Comfort Cottage!
