Plum Island cottage description
Hear the sounds of the ocean, watch beautiful sunsets, and wake to the birds singing! The cottage is a minute to the beach, located on the tranquil, secluded south side of the island.
The rental consists of a one bedroom upper suite with large deck complete with picnic table. The living space is flooded with light from skylights and large windows. There is a king-size luxury bed, full bath and kitchen. It includes cable television and wireless internet service.
There is also a full one bedroom apartment downstairs that may also be rented at the same time with previous arrangement perhaps for use of friends or relatives. If interested, please inquire.
Plum Island is accessed by one road running from Newburyport to the north of the island on a causeway and drawbridge over the Plum Island River.
Spend your vacation simply relaxing on the beach or stay active with fishing, whale watching, kayaking, sunbathing, sightseeing and shopping not only in Massachusetts but New Hampshire and Maine are only twenty minutes away. Boston is less than one hour away by car but there is also a bus direct to Logan airport or take the train direct to South Station.

Charming place, minutes from the beach
Charming place, minutes from the beach
We had a lovely time staying here. It is just across the road from an excellent beach, where we went every morning and every afternoon and could conveniently come back to the house for lunch or to rest. (Though there's no official ocean view claimed for the house, you actually can see a small patch of it from the bedroom window -- enough to make us smile -- and you can certainly hear its soothing sound as you drift off to sleep.) It is also only a couple hundred yards from the entrance to a wildlife preserve with miles of beaches and more miles of boardwalks through the salt marshes. The flat for rent is the second story of a small house, and the second floor entrance has a spacious deck with a pergola covered with wonderful old leafy vines. The interior has a kind of quiet artistic elegance, evocative of Provence. The space is great for two people, with a large living/dining space, a comfortable bedroom with a kingsize bed, and a well stocked kitchen (incl, when we were there, a full set of Cuisinart stainless steel pots and pans). The owner was very pleasant to interact with and quick to respond to any questions. It is certainly a place I would be very happy to return to, and recommend it without reservations for a couple wanting a quiet, restorative, romantic vacation, a few steps away from the ocean.

Can't wait to go back!

My husband and I were thrilled with this little piece of paradise! The apartment is upstairs and has it's own deck and picnic table, surrounded with vines and flowers. The flowers were in bloom and smelled heavenly. We enjoyed the large dining/living room as well as the fully stocked kitchen where we were able to cook some meals. Even use of a washer and dryer which was perfect to do laundry before going home. I am VERY picky about cleanliness but this place was spotless! The bedroom provided a nice, comfortable bed and a closet. On the downside, there isn't a view of the ocean from the apartment, but we didn't care as it was just literally a minute walk to get there. And the beach is just gorgeous! I loved the little fence leading down to the ocean...the view is just breathtaking and was exactly what I was looking for. The owner is just a lovely lady who was very helpful. She left brochures on the table of different things to do in the area....go Whale Watching and check out Bob Lobster Restaurant....and two beach chairs to use, which was nice as we hadn't thought of that! We spent most of our time in Newburyport, even though we had planned to go to Boston (never did get there.) Lots of different shops, again- whale watching, and many different kinds of restaurants. Overall, it was the best vacation we'd ever taken and look forward to going back.
