Recent North of Boston & Greater Merrimack Valley reviews

  • Michael and Pam Dean

    "We loved our stay at this home! We found the home to be in a quiet neighborhood with nice surroundings. The home is very clean, well set up and attractive. We loved the views of the cove from the kitchen and bedroom windows and we loved that it was a short drive to the beautiful town of Rockport. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to others."

  • Great Place, Great Spot

    "A wonderful place to use as the hub for a North Shore visit. Short walk to a couple of beaches, and a short drive to several others. Rockport's shops are an easy drive, as are all that Gloucester has to offer. Place is tidy, updated, with great distant ocean view and, at night, wave sounds from the nearby beach."

  • Wonderful apartment in Marblehead

    "We stayed here in mid-August 2014 & thoroughly enjoyed our time in Marblehead! There is a side door to the left side of the house with staircase directly to the 3rd floor apt - while you might be out of breathe at the top - it's worth the hike! The apartment is spacious and was a perfect choice for us along with our 9 yr old & my 71 yr mom. The 9 yr old used the day bed in the corner of the living room and for a small additional fee, we used the 2nd bedroom (1 queen bed) for my mom. Everything was clean, the kitchen was well stocked and we had breakfast there each morning - plus dinners a few nights. The apartment, towels and bedding are all in pristine condition - just keep in mind that this is a very old house and you will feel some un-eveness in the floors. The property is in a central location within Marblehead's old town. Although we did several day trips into Boston (drive ~30 min to closest subway stop & take the T), just staying in the village is a lovely relaxing time. The home owner provided maps with location of beaches, eating places, etc as well as many details on where to find things. Local people in Marblehead were wonderul and welcoming! We met local families several times at the beaches and at the Little Harbor Boathouse (for SUP board & Kayaking). While the water is cold - the welcome is warm! The mansion tours, shopping and walking around the local areas are fabulous! Enjoy your time here - we surely did!"

Ipswich Vacation Rentals are Ideal for Lazy Summers or Exciting Winter Fun

Unlike many vacation spots, Ipswich is great to visit regardless of the season. The area offers snowshoeing and amazing cross country skiing opportunities. In summer, those who love the water can enjoy kayaking and other water-based activities. To explore the great outdoors, vacationers can choose to get lost in the wonders of the Parker River National Wildlife Refuge. In excess of 300 birds, including those that migrate seasonally, call the refuge, home. At Parker River, visitors can try many activities, such as canoeing, fishing and waterfowl hunting.

Why Choose North Shore Boston Lodgings

Ipswich beach homes can compete with any hotel on price, plus many are rented by owners so you can negotiate. An added plus is that many Ipswich vacation rentals can accommodate groups of nine or more. Couples and families will also find the ideal vacation home among the many of the North Shore Boston lodgings.
