Plum Island cottage description

7 Melody Lane is a cozy, fully-equipped weekly rental cottage, suitable for two, and has access to Plum Island Basin, the Merrimac River and to the ocean, with easy access by boat, which can be beached within steps of the cottage. Plum Island Beach is a short five-minute walk along the Basin. Close to the Parker River Wildlife Refuge and charming Newburyport.

Dick’s Variety has groceries, newspapers, etc. It is about 1/2 mile from the cottage. On the way to Dick’s, you will pass Mr. Moe’s Liquor Store.

The Parker River Wildlife Refuge is 1mile, directly south. The Hellcat Swamp trail is highly recommended.

At the end of the Refuge road (about 6 miles in), is Sandy Point State Park. There is a good beach and free parking.

Capt. George’s Fishing Parties is at the end of Northern Blvd. 1/2 and full-day trips are fun, whether or not you fish (plus, they have booze-cruises).

It's Mad Martha's for breakfast, and the Plum Island Grille is the place for dinner.

              Car: Recommended

              Plum Island is located at the mouth of the Merrimac River. The area is connected to the mainland by a causeway that crosses The Great Salt Marsh, scenic and rich with wildlife, especially birds. Fishing and boating are two of the many activities available, with whale watching and party boat fishing available all summer from Plum Island Point. Newburyport is an historic Federalist city within 4 miles and offers a multitude of dining and shopping alternatives. The city has outdoor concerts and street fairs most summer weekends. Boston, Portsmouth, and Portland are also within easy day-trip range. Did we forget Rockport, Glocester, Salem, Essex, and Ipswich?

              Other Activities: Kayaking, Canoeing
