Newburyport summary

  • 3 of 5

Overall ok; very rustic which was not indicated in the website photos. We arrived during a hot spell and the room AC were loud and generally not very efficient making for some stuffy nights. One of the bed mattresses were not up to standard. Overall, ok. The venue is truly worthwhile, the town is charming and the week was worth repeating

Owner's Response: Hi George, Thank you for the feedback. For sure the 300 year old house was there before Washington was President! So the flooring is rustic and centuries of settline have left some sloping and dips in the post and beams...we've shown that 'character' best we could in the photos. Sorry to hear the mattress was uncomfortable, we've upgraded the mattresses based on your feedback, easy fix so thank you for highlighting. As an antique post and beam, it's not practical to have central air, hence the room AC's. Typically they do fine (expecially with the house open to the water) but I am sorry to hear during the hot spell you found it still stuffy. Thanks again for the feedback and hope we will have you back. Best, Steve

Perfect location, rain or shine...

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our stay immensely. Plenty of things to do in town and a 5 minute scenic drive to Plum Island beaches and

wildlife refuge. Good lobsters and a fabulous kitchen to cook them in...very cool wine "cellar" under the stairs. Patio was great for al fresco dining and upper deck for catching the view and a breeze.

We had a bit of a difficult time figuring out how to light the infrared grille and had to call the owner for assistance.

He responded within 10 minutes even though he was on a sailboat in Maine.

Owner's Response: Hi Elizabeth, Thank you for the feedback! This year we will have a house instruction manual to help with the electronics, grill, etc. We also refreshed the patio area, gardens, and built a new deck, added new outdoor furnishings, and new beds to be sure the house is ready for a beautiful New England season. Hope to have you back in the future, Steve

Historic character and quality upgrades

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a month in this charming house. Well-appointed kitchen with high end appliances, private back patio and upper deck with great views of the estuary and Plum Island and a spacious living room were much appreciated. THe sloping plank floors on the second level remind you that this house has a few centuries under its belt. Loved the location…everything is within walking distance.

New England vacation

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Newburyport home. The neighborhood was pleasant and quiet. The town is very vibrant and there's lots to do and see close by. The home itself was quite roomy with kitchen updates as well as bathroom updates. It would have been nice to have more detailed instructions for the appliances (including the washer and dryer) and electronics. We liked the balcony and the TV room. Also appreciate having dishes, spices if needed, towels, etc. We felt right at home! Thanks so much for a wonderful vacation location!
