"My husband and I rented the Gray Gull for a week in August. I have to say, I think it's situated on the best lot on Plum Island. There are great water views from three sides of the house. The house is located at the end of a road, and you truly are ten steps from the beach. This beach on this area of the island is great for children, as the water is calmer. We had front-row seats each night on the deck to unobstructed water and sunset views. I was also pleasantly surprised to see that the furniture and some of the finishings were actually MORE updated that what is depicted in the pictures on this site. The cottage is tastefully furnished with a decorating style that's part Pottery Barn, part Mid-Century Modern. The kitchen had everything we needed, and the bathroom appeared to have been recently renovated. I'd highly recommend this rental."

"I live in Newburyport, only three miles away from this location, and we rented the house off-season for my family to stay in when they were in town visiting. It was November and a little too cold to make use of the outdoor space but the inside of the house was warm and comforting. Eleanor was a very responsive host and the house had all the essentials you would need for a short or long stay. Although not right on the beach, the lot across Northern Boulevard is empty so you could still see the sunrise and the ocean from the second floor. The bedrooms do not have TVs and a large dinner table make the house conducive to time with family or friends. If you are looking for a party house at the beach this is not it but if you are looking for a beautiful comfortable space to stay and enjoy all the area has to offer, you've found it."

"We loved this sweet cottage. Very comfy and easy. Rooftop deck is fantastic. Favorite place was the sunroom -- great for gathering in the evening with friends. Nice area for walking. Enjoyed the basin views. Minutes from Newburyport. We'll be back."

"This was our 6th year on Plum Island, but our first year at this beach house, and this house is my favorite. It is tastefully decorated with all the amenities and has that homey feel to it. Aside from having plenty of towel, which is a must at a beach house, and on outdoor shower, another must at a beach house in my opinion, it has a lovely view of the basin while being a very short walk to the ocean side/beach. There were plenty of rooms and baths to accommodate our 4 teenagers and us while providing plenty of space and privacy for all. The older kids would be on the lower deck, while the younger teenagers were on the upper deck, while my husband and I enjoyed the front porch. The enclosed front room is lovely for playing games and lounging when you want to be out of the sun but still cozy. Arlene even remembers all the little touches like soap, paper products, basic condiments/spices and even shampoo. I can't say enough great things about this place. And when my daughter lost a sentimental necklace, Arlene retrieved it for us and mailed it to us. We're looking forward to returning. The only thing that would have made it perfect was if we could bring our dog with us, but we find that many places on Plum Island don't permit that."
