  • Wonderful family vacation

    "Rating Details: I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. I was very happy with the location. The vacation rental was spotless. The property manager was very helpful. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Our family loved this house. It provides a beautiful setting for a wonderful family vacation. The views are spectacular from both outside and inside the house. The house is tastefully decorated and is a very comfortable place to spend time. It has plenty of room for everyone to have their own space. It had everything we needed and the rental agent provided any extra services we requested. I highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a special place to vacation. Manager responded on 9/23/2014: We are gratified that you enjoyed Pigeon Cove House as much as we thought you would! We know that you have rented properties which had rates that were twice as much as Pigeon Cove, and are extremely happy that you feel that you received a good value in addition to your fabulous vacation. We look forward to having you back in 2015! Best, AVH Staff"

  • A great locale on the North Shore

    "We wanted to spend some time exploring Newburyport and surrounds, and the Carriage House provided a wonderful place to call home while we did just that. It had everything we needed to cook, relax, and get organized for our excursions. It is an easy walk to the riverfront, and we enjoyed seeing the historic homes and museums along the way. We loved the beaches and bird watching on Plum Island, and even took a day trip out to Gloucester and Rockport. Thank you for your hospitality! We have fond memories of our stay at the Carriage House, and the amazing Linden tree!"

  • Great beach house!

    "My family greatly enjoyed the week we spent at this house. We vacation on Plum Island almost every year and this was one of the best houses we have rented. It is in a great location, close to the beach and on a quiet street that was safe for the kids. The house had everything we needed and was very comfortable. We hope to come back again!"

  • Lovely little home away from home.

    "The photos do it absolute justice. We loved our week long stay in this little piece of heaven. The attention to detail involved in the cottage is impressive. The front porch area is a great place to spend the early morning watching the fish in the little pond. The plum cove beach area is about a 5 minute walk down the street. The little parking garage is a bit tricky to get in to, and be sure there is purple trash bags on your stay. The city wont pick up trash unless you use the city sanctioned bags. We had to go buy our own but the local convenience store has them. The shower was amazing and the whole house integrated sound system was a nice feature also. The wifi was a bit spotty it seemed to come and go. On our visit we checked out the lighthouse area around the breakers, went on the 7 sea's whale watch, ate plenty of clams, cooked our own lobsters (there is a big boiling pot included), drove around the entire cape, checked out Salem, visited Cape Pond Ice, saw the Hammond Castle and went to the Ryan & Wood distillery. There is so much to see and do in the area, that a week is not enough time to see all the sites. I would highly recommend a stay at this little cottage its perfect for a couple visiting the area."
