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.
