Plum Island cottage description
Location...Location...Location...that says it all! Spectacular sunsets, private sandy beach, panoramic Harbor views of Downtown Newburyport, the Arctic Cottage offers you one of the best locations on Plum Island to enjoy your family's vacation, or week-end getaway!
Imagine yourself relaxing on the wrap-around porch...snuggled up with that novel you've been wanting to read for months now...the sounds of children frolicking in the water and playing on the beach located within steps of your front door...peaceful and tranquil - exactly how your vacation is supposed to be!
Take a stroll down the beach and purchase tickets for the next deep sea fishing excursion to catch 'monster' Haddock, Cod, Pollack, and Halibut. Plan an evening of fun aboard one of the Nightly Dinner Cruises departing from Plum Island Point and dance the night away under the stars. For the boating enthusists, the Arctic cottage also has a deep water mooring that's available to all guests of the cottage. Come and enjoy boating in some of the most scenic waterways along the entire East Coast! And for the avid fisherman, these waters are World-famous for the best Striped Bass fishing in New England!
Located at the Northern tip of Plum Island, 10 minutes from downtown Newburyport...fast becoming the #1 Summertime Destination Point in Massachusetts. Newburyport, known as the 'Landside Nantucket,' (only better! - more accessible to Boston & Logan Airport than Cape Cod & the Islands, 45 minutes driving - 1 hour by train,) Newburyport has an extensive offering of Restaurants, Shops, Boutiques, Art Galleries, Theater, Museums, and countless Historical attractions to enjoy!
This 1920's vintage Plum Island cottage - known as the 'Arctic Cottage' is one of the oldest cottages on Plum Island. Originally built as a seasonal cottage, many of it's architectural features were designed to take advantage of it's seaside location. The distinctive wrap around porch that provides shade and shelter after a long day out on the beach...the 'pocket' windows that mysteriously disappear into the walls to take advantage of the summertime breeze. The expansive windows throughout the cottage that brings the outdoors - inside...transforming the cozy beachfront cottage into an 'on the water' experience! To get a 'bird's eye' view of Plum Island and to see the cottage's location...go to Google Maps and enter the address - 82nd Street Newburyport, MA.

This cottage was even better than I had hoped. I stayed for a week, and then booked another week 2 weeks later! It is right on the water, has a great covered deck, is well appointed with updated furnishings and appliances. The location is spectatcular. Highly recommend! Plus the owner is very easy to work with.

Visiting the Arctic Cottage is the quintessential New England experience. The views, salt air, swimming, beachcombing, and access to fine dining,boutique shopping and Starbucks make it the perfect family vacation. We're looking forward to our third year of creating lifelong memories for our children at the Arctic Cottage!
