ABOUT PLUM ISLAND. Plum Island is an 11 mile long barrier island just off the shore of Newburyport, Mass. The island faces the Atlantic Ocean and is separated from the mainland by a causeway that crosses spectacular tidal marshes and the Parker and Merrimac Rivers. Most of Plum Island is part of the 4,600 acre Parker River Wildlife Refuge.

The remaining part, the northern end of the island is populated with an eclectic mix of cottages, 'architectural mistakes' and trophy homes that truly make it movie set worthy! Just steps away from any home is the beach, ten gorgeous, pristine, unspoiled miles of it. The sunrises, the sunsets, and the stargazing are stunning.

Plum Island has one small, very luxurious beach front hotel, a handful of shops and 3 restaurants, all within walking distance from the cottage. The historic town of Newburyport is the quintessential New England town with a very sophisticated selection of shops, restaurants, galleries and theaters. Day trips abound, as does anything else you would want to do; golf, tennis, boating, kayaking, whale watching, horseback riding, yoga, spas and spa treatments, antiquing, out let shopping etc.

Legend says that Plum Island is a one of a very few Native American sacred sites in North American for healing. I choose to believe this is true. To those that feel it, Plum Island has a very seductive charm and allure.
