A pleasant retreat with easy access to swimming, kayaking, bird-watching, and sunset-viewing, as well as the restaurants, galleries, and other attractions of Newburyport, and Parker River National Wildlife Refuge and Sandy Point State Reservation. A moment's walk to Plum Island Beach on one side of the house and the tidal Basin on the other, 2-mile cycle, walk, or drive to the Refuge entrance, and 4 miles to Newburyport center.

The first floor has a cozy, cottage feeling, including: living room with fireplace, dining-room, well-equipped eat-in kitchen with gas stove and dishwasher, a study/guest room, and full bath. Clothes washer and dryer in basement. Enclosed sun-porch and a small deck at the front of the house.Upstairs is bright and airy. Two large bedrooms, each with French doors open to a deck that runs the width of the 2nd floor, with ocean and Basin views. Drapes provide privacy and shade. Half-bath with view of the Basin .

The house is set back from the street, with small front and back yards and a cobblestone patio in back, offering tree-shaded play areas for children, a place for grilling and outdoor eating, and a semi-enclosed outdoor shower. Parking for 4 cars. Well-insulated. New windows. Gas heat. Central AC (not often needed, because there's always a breeze). Wireless internet.

Rent negotiable for responsible tenant staying most of the Fall/Winter..

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: We live an hour away in Cambridge, Massachusetts. After frequently making day-trips to Plum Island, then renting cottages for a week or two over several summers, we decided to buy a house here where we could build memories for ourselves and our friends. We love the quiet, the bird-song, the closeness of the beach, the summer breezes, and the way the landscape and the light are always changing.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Many of our renters have come back year after year when their children are young, and others have been people who once lived on the island and wanted to come back and visit. Winter tenants are often people considering moving to the island, starting a new job in the area, or making another transition. We think this is a house that welcomes people and wants them to feel at home.
